Load Act 1 - Fish in a Barrel on casual difficulty and play until the fountain (1 minute) and keep your grenades!
Inside the fountain you will find two other grenades. You should now have four grenades for all four e-holes. The e-hole spawns immediately after you have reached the fountain.
There are four locations for the e-holes and the order in which they spawn is different every time (except the last e-hole). If you press the Y-button, the game tells you where a e-hole spawns. Now you have to throw your grenade quickly into the e-hole before any of the locust have fully emerged. If one of the locust emerges before you close the e-hole with your grenade, reload the last checkpoint and you'll start again at the fountain. The last e-hole is a bit difficult because you have to throw your grenade quickly from the hip where the cars get blown up. The achievement should unlock after you've closed the last e-hole.
