    In Act 2, I found a merchant on the street (protected by barricades) that had one grenade for sale for $600. If you take a look at this map (credit to IGN):
    The merchant is the red triangle southwest of the church (the yellow pentagon marked with a '1').
    I was around level 19 at the time. There are plenty of vehicles in the city to jump on top of, so when you find an Infected (they are the zombies that run and attack extremely fast) leap on top of a vehicle. The zombie cannot hurt you up there, particularly if it is a tall vehicle, like an ambulance. Throw the grenade at the Infected and you should get the achievement.

    narc mouseWhen you get the mission to kill Alfran in the Jungle section, there's a box with 3 grenades and a large health kit by his hiding spot.

    WhyattThrashThe grenades outside Afran's house respawn, so you can come back there anytime later in the game to pick up 3 new grenades. This is the only surefire method of finding grenades that I've encountered since the merchants don't always carry them,

    At the very end of the game in Act 4 on the roof of the prison there is a whole stash of ammuniton and grenades and a ton of zombies. I just picked one up threw it at my feet while zombies were running at me then suicided but killed them all and bam got the achievement.

    The SharkopathDidn't work the first try throwing it at the zombies. So I tried your method of suicide and it worked fine.

    I just passed level 19 and i replayed in act2, the merchant on the right protected by barricades had grenade for 600. I really think this is scripted. After this, you've made the most difficult: find a real grenade!!! ONLY A REAL GRENADE TO POP UP THE ACHIEVEMENT... ANYTHING ELSE DOESN'T WORK!!!
    Another very important detail: ONLY 1 INFECTED... NOT 1 INFECTED WITH A LOT OF OTHERS ZOMBIES BUT ONLY 1 INFECTED KILLED BY YOUR GRENADE!!! So when you have your grenade, find an infected, go on the top of an ambulance, kill by headshots all the others zombies around you, let alive only the infected, watch carefully around you there is not another hidden zombie and throw your grenade in the infected's feet: you'll get the achievement ;)
