Default Better than harsh words...how do you do that?

You need to kill 5 enemies with melee. Well i tried that but it didn't work. How am i supposed to finish that challenge? I even tried to melee with a grenade in my hand since using melee with a rifle ends up shooting the alien.

Stun some humans if possible with ballbreakers, keep one in your hand once done as you move and melee faster. Then lay into them.
Best place for doing a lot of challenges is during the Second Solaco mission as there are two punch bags who burst through the door just asking for it, smack there faces in then hit replay checkpoint and repeat till they are done.

I'd wait till you did the challenge to destroy five sentry turrets that gives you the boxer perk and increased melee damage if I were you.

Perks don't work in Campaign.

This is how I got it......
Set the game on recruit and play the 1st level....
Pull out your grenades and melee all aliens on the map or you could shoot them a bit then pull out the nades and melee them.
I got it after I rescued keyes.

btw I soloed for that achievement.

The 10 melee kills challenge you get later on is even more ridiculous. These things follow no difficulty curve or rational order, it's like someone just tossed together random words in an effort to add the illusion of depth. I hate this game so much I have this overwhelming urge to completely max it out......it's maddening.

Ok, so I just finished the 10 melee kills one. Here's how I did it. Do the mission Sulaco Falls on recruit, the instances where the weyland yutani troops are fighting with the aliens you can just run up and melee them down, takes two hits for the normal troops so it's pretty easy, then, to fill in the few that you can't get that way just murderlate a group of them and shock the last one standing with the shottys alt fire, easy melee kill.
