    You'll want to do this as soon as you find a place you can rocket multiple aliens, ideally four or more, but no less than three.

    1) Save your game (Save A)
    2) Rocket enemies
    3) Save your game (Save B)
    4) Load Save A
    5) Repeat from step 2 until the achievement pops.

    Without installing the game, it takes about a minute to do the full loop, so expect this to take 10-20 minutes, depending on how many you can rocket at once.

    HolyHalfDeadStep 3 is not required.

    Pick Danger Zone and Mayhem for your Heavy. With those abilities I was able to Rocket 6 enemies at a time.

    GeoffistophelesIt'd limit the amount you'd have to reload, but step 3 would still be required if you don't use explosives often.

    This achievement is a Tally of all single player games, you dont have to kill all 50 in a single game. The amount you have done is shown at the end of a game at a statistics screen.

    bryan dot exeCan this be boosted by repeatedly reloading the same save point, killing the same alien, and repeating?

    UnjustlyViciousi believe its possible if you save kill save then load the first save kill and save again

    This one will come with time, just make sure that either all your troops have grenades or that you have a couple of heavy weapon troops so you can use their rocket launcher. Just make sure to use them on sectoids or slim men whenever you can. Especially if they are in a group of 2 or 3 so you can catch them in the blast radius of said explosive device :)
