    I didn't have this by the end of the game so I'm using a solution posted for "I am become death". Basically start up Fight Club Hard in Loren Square. In Round 2, the King of the Hill round the enemies will come at you with baseball bats. I simple up the Ice Buff on and when I get 6 or so enemies around me frozen I ground pound then rinse and repeat. You just need to be able to finish the Fight Club game otherwise the kills won't count. This will also count towards your 1000 enemy kills using super powers.

    Sometimes kills will count as shatter kills instead of stomp kills. If that happens you can just ground pound. Provided it is upgraded enough it should kill enemies by itself.

    MikeTheGameProYou actually don't need to finish the activity. What I did was I saved my game before I exit the activity, and then I walked back into it with my kills saved. I'm not sure if saving really helps keep the kills but I never risked it to test it out.

    During the Primary Quest "Emergency Situation", you'll get to a point where the objective is "TK throw clones back into source". There are an infinite number of clones spawning from a portal with no time limit or way to fail. They continuing spawning 9-at-a-time clustered together everytime the previous wave was cleared and aren't very strong at all, so there should be no danger to you, either.

    This is an ideal spot to grind just about any power or weapon kill up to this point. For this particular achievement, just stand near where they spawn, let them do so, stomp, repeat. This is by far the most efficient method I was able to find.

    A word of warning: as of when I did it at release, the game doesn't like to count Stomp kills very often no matter where you do them. So, just keep at it. It'll unlock sooner or later (as you can see, I do indeed have it).

    Fire Hawk DYeah. Me and my partner were at about the same amount of Stomps. At the mission mentioned above, he easily grinded out and got the achievements just as described. I, on the other hand, killed over 200 guys and STILL the counter wouldn't even pop up. Very annoying.

    Fire Hawk DYeah, that's how it went for my partner. I, on the other hand, had the same trouble Calex dEUS had.

    easy way to do it is go to the location in the video and you can get it by killing Professor Genki 101 times DO NOT LET THE KILL COUNT GET TO 101 OR YOU CAN'T FARM IT instead press start and cancel he will spawn 101 again plus cops don't count

    neeker75Definitely best place to farm this. By the time I did this mission, I was already on just over 100. I just killed 50 more (can kill up to 12 per stomp!) and achievement unlocked. Thanks.
