    The easiest spammiest way to get this sepecific one is to park your Mako anywhere you can see it. Then, simply cast Neural Shock onto it.

    You'll notice the red wave's of energy after you hit from each one casting, which means you successfully landed a hit.

    It registers as an organic enemy being hit, just do this 75 times, no pressure whatsoever. The Mako will receive damage though so just in case repair it once or twice in the process to make sure nothing bad happens.

    tehNinjaGnomethis does NOT work on rapid transit systems for the achievement.

    Just tried farming this and stasis achieve by reloading in front of a transit system repeatedly, Stasis popped and Neural Shock did not. Even after a couple extra uses it failed to do so. It was not until well into farming this and AI Hack on fist/turrets fight that it registered enough proper uses.

    GergznerJust a note for anyone trying to clean up achievements in 2022. In Mass Effect 1 the abilities have to be cast by your character unlike in the Legendary Edition. So I just wasted over an hour spamming Kaidan's ability to realize it wasn't working. Hope this helps someone.

    Just start an engineer and make sure you have AI hacking and Neural shock before you attack Fist in Chora's Den. Then save before you enter his room and cast hacking on a turret and neural shock on fist, then load the save you just made. Rinse, Repeat.

    chef matt 32Great solution! A couple of minor notes. You will need to level up your character to at least a level 6. When I boosted, this took an hour and 41 minutes. Fairly quick, but you will still need to do a few side quests. Also, be careful to make sure you actually hit Fist with the Neural Shock. His health bar will go to a green colour and will decrease a bit. A couple of times, he hid behind the bar and my Neural Shock missed and it took a while to recharge. The above solution definitely works.

    SlLVER KlNGI used this method to boost neural shock, ai hack, and the rest of my engineer abilities. I'd also like to add that if you make sure you have lost some health right before your save it also makes boosting the medi-gels much faster as well.

    This doesn't work against Citadel Rapid Transit terminals.

    I got it on "Easy" by going to Feros. First, I used neural shock and wiped out the Varren pack, and then worked on the Alpha male. The alpha male took quite a few shocks before dying. Then I went to the Krogans guarding the communications relay. I was able to peek around the corner and keep hitting the same Krogan again and again without him charging out after me.
