Tips

The game defines "assisting" as when you "maim" the mob by damaging it without killing it. You can achieve this by shooting a small burst of your weapon, or even by smacking the mob with your pick. For this to count towards your sidekick achievement, another person must then follow through to kill the damaged mob.

Note that maiming mobs generated by spawners does not count. Helping to kill mobs generated in a Pandora's Box event does count, however, and this is an excellent way to complete this achievement.

You can also visit a populated mob farming world and simply shoot a few times into an enclosure that someone else is working at. Be sure to explain yourself first, though, as many players will interpret this as you trying to "steal" their kills, and may respond in an unfriendly way.
