    This achievement is a Tally of all single player games, you dont have to kill all 500 in a single game. The amount you have done is shown at the end of a game at a statistics screen.

    MetalThreshkeenIt appears to even track kills you "undo" by reloading a previous save. I unlocked this achievement during the final mission on my first play-through, but the enemy kill count in the end-game stats screen only showed around 460 kills.

    ardliveI deleted a couple of my failed Iron Man saves (oops). Do you think it will still remember the kills I made during those play throughs?

    Simple and Easy. You will get this as you naturally progress throughout the game. I got it about 3/4th the way through the campaign.

    Try to do every mission possible to speed this up. I found that crashed UFO's were where most of the enemies are and the best for getting a ton of kills.

    Also to make this easier, make sure you do a TON of research and invest in better weapons and HOVER SHIVs. SHIVs with the plasma cannon take most baddies out easily if not cripple them.
