    Kill 150 enemies with the pistol. Because this weapon is often the weakest weapon in your arsenal, it's recommended that you use this earlier in the game when enemies are weaker.

    If you don't get 150 kills during your first playthrough don't worry since the kill count carries through to other playthroughs for the same career (player character).

    Tm5kPinnacle Station "kills" count, too. I unlocked this achievement while running simulations there.

    Smokey1424sBluejacket I have a feeling it doesn't count thru multiple playthroughs and you killed 150 enemies on Eden Prime. Most pointless comment ever besides this one.

    Play survival and all the other game types in the DLC and all the kills you get there will contribute to your weapon kills. Just make sure you are the one that finishes them off as it wont count if an ally does.

    Disclaimer: Kills carry over across all saves, and you don't have to save for them to count. This solution is for people who just want to grind the achievement as quickly as possible, even if untrained in Pistols. You must have command of the Normandy before you can follow this solution.

    Killing friendly critters counts towards your kills. Go to the planet Eletania (in the Hercules system of Attican Beta) where you will find several colonies of little monkey aliens. Simply drive up to one in the Mako, save your game, and shoot each of the monkeys with your pistol of choice. When they're all dead, reload your save and repeat.

    There are about ten monkeys in each colony, so you'll need to do this fifteen times at most. Note that there are poisonous toxins in the atmosphere that will eventually kill you, but you should be able to get all the monkeys before then.
