    ACT1:Light House; James Stein

    At the Light House talk to James Stein, at the top of the Light House. You'll want to look for the side quest called Counsel of Despair. For finishing the quest you'll get a torch mod. Using 2 Rags, 2 Glues and 2 Gas For Lighters and a weapon given you can create the torch once created the achievement will pop up.

    *Side Note: You should build up your Fury since there is a Thug found in the area while doing this quest. (It'll make things easier if you hate dealing with Thugs) - Side Note thanks to DNGRDOOM64

    Formulusok i've already created several shock and fire weapons and I've never had this achievement pop yet, so do i need a certain level weapon, or certain rarity etc.?

    The torch mod does work, but actually, if you don't wanna have to go out of your way for a sidequest you don't have to do, then just go with the main story, and at some point in Act 1. (I think it's close to after getting to the lifeguard tower), you'll get a shock mod. All you need is some wire, batteries, and duct tape I believe and just make that and you'll get the achievement.

    This is one you'll probably get early on in the game!

    So very early in the game. Doesn't require a random sidequest.

    Lt DavoThe torch mod is available in chapter 2, though. Not that there's anything wrong with telling people when their second opportunity comes to unlock the achivement.
