Very easy achievement. But, it only counts kills in the campaign portion of the DLC, not for Hammer kills in Horde. Wait until you get to chapter 4 where you use the Hammer of Dawn (for the second time in Raam's Shadow) and kill all of the running Theron. Keep the cursor just above the bottom seeder so you can kill 3-4.

Once they've stopped spawning, kill the seeders, which forces you to leave the hammer of dawn screen then pause and reload the checkpoint to do it again.

Shouldn't take longer than 5 minutes.

EDIT: Some people are so quick to downvote lol.. The achievement tracker won't appear until you leave the hammer of dawn screen.
