    This is another one of those special zombie achievements.

    The achievement description states that you must use a grenade to kill a Suicider. However, I got this achievement by throwing a propane tank down and blowing it up with a thrown weapon.

    Spoiler: At the crash site in Act 1, you will come across a Suicider after the cut scene. A little behind you is a propane tank which can be used to blow him up. Done properly, this should net you the achievement.

    c36dTHis works in the sewer with the red barrels also. When you have to escape at certain times they will block the nbarrow paths and stand next to the red barrels. I shot a barrel to blow the guy out of the way and the achievement popped. I am going to try and see if this trick works on infected guys too.

    The easiest and quickest way to get the achievement is to use a deo-bomb. They are extremely cheep to make and do not require you to rely on a contextual propane tank or a more expensive grenade.

    Guile132The problem with your solution (partially) is that if you DON'T have a Deo-Bomb, then it's pointless which would make the propane tank more useful since it's right at the scene of the Suicider but if you do have a Deo-Bomb, then by all means use it.

    Darth SporkerYes, the first time you see a Suicider he will be by a propane tank, but if you are past that part then you will have to hope to find them near each other again or waste an expensive grenade on the achievement. I am glad that you saw the tank in that scene and were able to use it, but many people will not see the tank and will have to find a way to get it later.

    Octobot SuperIncidentally, I found that scene and subsequent battle to be extremely bizarre. "Hey, check out this new enemy! Get close and see what happens!" Then you die, the Suicider is gone, and there's just a guy sitting nearby that is acting like nothing just happened. I'm not even sure what happens if you survive the fight. Extra cutscene?

    I got this achievement in the City Hall after you've been to the supermarket, when on the second floor of the building in the big open room, there should be a cop type zombie lying on the floor with a grenade next to him, kill him, pick up the grenade and look over the side, there should be a Ram and a Suicider, wait till the Suicider is near the Ram and throw the grenade down at the Ram's feet, should take both out at once and bag the achievable!
