    Not sure why anyone has not posted THE FASTEST way of doing this! Choose Bubba Fett (anyone that throws thermals) and go into the Bonus Levels. Here enemies keep respawning and clutter together. I choose Episode I Bonus and just waited until about 12-15 enemies were together and threw a single bomb and got the achievement!!!! That simple, achievement unlocked.

    skittlebizMaybe no one has posted this because it sucks. Dunno how these other two posters got it but for me the most droids I could get spawned at once was like 6 or 7. Dunno how you got 10

    The best place to attempt this Achievement is in the second phase of Episode I, Chapter 6 - Darth Maul. To either side of the arena, a battle droid commander calls in reinforcements in large numbers. They pack themselves pretty close together.

    Enter this level in Free Play mode after purchasing one of the bounty hunter characters (Boba Fett, Greedo, IG-88. etc). Allow a large group of battle droids to assemble on the platform, then stand back and lob in a thermal detonator. If you don't get it the first time, hang around on the platforms that have the "air current" flowing through them so that you can stay out of the way while they respawn and collect. Then drop down and try again until you get it.

    skittlebizThis worked for me on my second try. Like Vermin said, after first bomb try, I just went up into one of the air currents and waited a second, then I floated back down to the right-hand side and walked all the way to the back (behind the droid who calls the new droids) and it seemed like all the droids from the left-hand side came over and collected with the others. I then walked inside the huge group of droids, so that the most would be near me, and dropped the bomb and this popped.

    I did this in Episode III, Chapter 4 (Defense of Kashyyyk). The third area has two droid commanders endlessly calling droids 12 at a time, which gives you a nice supply to work with. I recommend using one of the ghosts and a bounty hunter that's not too many clicks away in free play mode -- I used Ben Kenobi (Ghost) and Greedo.

    As the ghost, the droids will mob you but not attack. Let all of them get around you, then quickly switch through the characters to the bounty hunter (for me it was 2 left buttons away) and immediately throw a thermal detonator with the B button. As soon as it hits a droid, it will detonate and take out most of the mass of droids -- and probably you as well. That should be enough, but if not, keep the droid commanders alive and you'll have unlimited droids to try with.

    xxx iFIGHT xxxIt also helps to have the super thermal detonator activated.

    Templar PunkYour solution worked best for me. This is a great place to get Droid Slayer as well!
