    This achievement is obtained by severing 100 limbs from mobs in the game. From personal experience it has to be from a live mob (In other words you can't kill a mob and proceed to hack off both his arms and legs). So if you're concentrating on this achievement in any way aim for the arms during combat with a sharp weapon is my best recommendation. Regular Zombies usually die from having their limbs removed so you can usually only get 1 limb per kill (besides thugs and special Zombies).

    Thanks. I was wondering why I only had one! I was slicing the limbs off after they died.

    Cutting off limbs isn't terribly difficult - though you will need an edged weapon, machete or sickle seems to work very well - but this is so much easier when they can't fight back! Just kick the crap out of them and once they're on the ground aim at the arms or legs and off they fly.

    Like most of the Zed smashing achievements, this one is stackable between characters so if you're finding it difficult later in the game you can start a new character and keep going.
