    The best place to get this achievement is just after you come out of the mines after Ravenholm. There's a couple of soldiers there that will throw grenades at you. Use your gravity gun to throw them back at the soldier.

    - Tip: save before you run into the soldiers, I kept missing the soldiers so they stopped throwing grenades at me.

    PatsredsDoes the grenade kill in one shot? Whenever I threw the grenade back it would never finish kill them even if it was right at their feet, so I fired a few pistols shots into him and then got it.

    much easier way to do this one, simply wait for a soldier to throw a gernade, grab it with the gravity gun, and then run up and "hug" the soldier, as long as your close enough to him when it goes off you should get the achivment.

    Fairly easy to do, just take a grenade, that they have thrown, using the gravity gun and fire it back at them. Making sure not to blow your own limbs off.
