    There is a point in Act 1 Chapter 2 that is waaaay easier to use, just after you've gone up a large stairway and round a corner, Dom shouts "Grubs" and then "Marcus, flank them". At this point you need to flank down the left side to the far end of the area. If you get there quickly enough you can drop a grenade into an emergence hole just as it's opening. If you get the timing right it's a guaranteed triple kill. This method took me less than 10 minutes, rather than the 60 minutes (estimate based on scoring 2 triple kills in ten minutes at the prison door) I would have taken using the pot luck prison door method.

    TS GhostI tried going for this Achievement when the game came out, with the old method. I don't know how much time I spent going for the Achievement then, but I eventually gave up.

    I tried this method, and after about five successful grenade shots, it unlocked.

    Thanks for the solution.

    LavoffyThe prison door method is more ineffective than this method, but I found a way to get the cheevo easier in the prison door method. Instead of waiting at the perfect time to throw your grenade, as soon as the door explodes run up to the first drone, grenade tag him and block him from leaving the door. This causes the other 2 to move up and then they all die including you but it still counts for the cheevo even when you die. It worked 8/10 times. So this proves that kamikaze beats accuracy in the prison door method lol.

    This achievement involves killing three enemies at once (a triple kill) on ten seperate occasions (in the single player campaign).

    There are two prime spots for doing this. The first is in Act 1, where you are breaking out of prision. There is a point at which Dom tells you to take cover as the Locust start forcing their way in through a metal door. As the door is blown off it's hinges, three grubs charge through the doorway. This is your chance to get a triple kill. If you accomplish this, simply run to the next stage and allow yourself to be killed. You will then respawn at the point where the three locust are about to break through the door, where you can repeat this procedure as many times as needed.

    The second, and my personal favourite, is another point in Act 1, just after the point at which you cross a high bridge and see two dead COG soldiers next to a van and a large hole in the ground. Kim uses his code to open the door, and your squad have to fend off hourds of Wretches in a long hall.

    Often these Wretches group together, and if you throw or tag an enemy at the right time, you can blow three (or more) of them up at once. If you did this successfully, you can let the remaining Wretches kill you, at which point you will respawn just at the point before the Wretches emerge.
