    Achievement: Ah! Spoiled Meat!
    Kill a Butcher using an axe.

    Self explanatory...the butchers show up in act 3 in the jungle. Find one and kill it using an axe!

    EDIT: You can get an axe from loren's side quest (I believe she is in Moresby) and the butcher first shows up during your first mission in the jungle. You should trigger a cut scene following your white dot trail on your mini map.
    -thanks to DuncanMacleod08

    EDIT: The butchers do regenerate their health so if your axe isn't very strong you may want to dwindle his health down with your strongest weapon or even a gun to keep them at a distance. Then move in for the final kill with your axe, or just throw
    your axe. Also throwing your axe will pop this achievement too.
    Thanks to Spletchie for pointing out the health regeneration.

    HiradCanyone else think this should've required a meat cleaver instead of axe? seems a bit like a bungled play on words

    RickyGBirdCan confirm that Loren's sidequest is in the jungle, for the hatchet (axe).

    At the lab, on the right side, there is a row of what look like cells. There is a butcher in the last one.

    Here is a sneaky trick, which most of you know, the butcher cant reach you on top of a car. So take the car that is outside of the main door, and drive it so it wedges into the narrow walkway infront of the cells. If you get lucky with the placing he could actually just get himself stuck. But in any case, quickly jump out of the car, and jump on top of it once you are close enough.

    He should come running, and then just crouch down and smack away.

    However, just for the record, with a decent character and an axe, this is not hard, go to the same place, he runs at you, bam, kick to the face, and then just whack away. 9/10 you kill him first.

    Lt DavoGood solution, but since the lab is a big place, I think it would help to note that this area is visited during side quest "Power Slaves".
