    The video below shows a simple way to obtain this achievement.

    At the end of Chapter 6, you will be waiting for a door to open so that you may advance. Five or six WU grunts will attempt to squeeze through the door at once. Throw the grenade when you see the first and the others should catch fire, unlocking the achievement.

    Hopefully this assuages any difficulty. It is easier with humans anyway, as their movements are not nearly as erratic as the Xenomorphs.

    Herr MurphyIn case anyone is curious, as I was, it seems that using the firebomb launcher for the pulse rifle does not count toward this.

    For me personally, the easiest location for this is near the end of chapter 3, Sulaco Falls.

    You will come to a long empty corridor, with a window viewing space on your right. You then open a door on your left, and there is a solitary xeno crouched behind the door.

    In the right place? Super.

    When you open the next door, you'll be in another long corridor, with a window (viewing outer space) on your right. You'll see Xeno's appear, and run away.

    This is a pre-scripted event. 4-5 Xenos will exit vents, and run (away from you) towards 4-5 Weyland Mercs. The Xenos attack, and then you have 10 or so people clustered in a very small space. Just throw your firebomb grenade (select it using Y), and wait.

    I got this first attempt. Theres just so many enemies in one spot, its hard to miss.
