    Easy achievement that just requires you to play. You need to knock over 1000 scientists and any method works. Use the guns from your jetpack or the vehicles. The only thing to note is that just running along the ground does not knock over the scientists.

    You can track your progress toward this achievement with the in-game achievement menu. It took me about an hour to get 1000 scientists.

    This achievement is a lot easier than you'd think. If you want to get it legit you just have to shoot the guys with your jetpack or knock them over with the vehicles. Nothing out of the ordinary there.

    But, for those that don't mind a little boosting, there's a much faster way. I figured out that all of the little scientists that you splatter at the beginning when you bust through the wall count towards the 1000. But wait! There's more! You can hit retry and they still count!

    So, start a match, wait til all of the scientists are knocked down, and then pause and retry. You can keep repeating until you've got all 1000. You could probably knock this out in about 15 minutes.

    If you want to keep track of your score you can do that in the main menu by clicking on achievements and then clicking on the "For Science" achievement.

    Happy hunting!

    For this achievement you need to knock over (Scatter) 1,000 Scientists.

    This does not have to be done in one run as that would be impossible, this achievement is cumulative over all your play throughs of the game and all you need to do is fly/land near a scientist to make them scatter (You can also jump by them to help by tapping or clicking the screen)

    You can check how many Scientists you have scatter from The Stash - My Profile - Totals (Scroll with your finger or mouse)

    Note the Nerd Repellant gadget will stop Scientists from showing.
    Here's a video showing some Scientists being scattered
