    About half way into the campaign you will encounter enemies who toss dynamite at you. They will hide behind cover, and then pop out and throw it. You will know it's dynamite because it will have a red blinking symbol near it warning you something is about to explode. Simply equip the Shotgun and wait until the dynamite is above and in front of you and blast away. May take a few tries but you got this! toast

    FoolsAndKingsIf you forget about this, like I did, but haven't finished the game, there is a guy who throws Dynamite when you first have to battle on the very last level

    Guinness DrinkrWhere can this be done in Multiplayer? I see the icon up there but I haven't come across it yet.

    Warboy925Like FoolsandKings stated, on the very last level, keep going until you see a cut scene where an enemy gets crushed by a "rolling pillar", there are 3 guys, one will come towards you so kill him quick, hide behind the stone and wait for the guy on the right to throw the dynamite...if you miss, just reload last checkpoint and you will be right there before the cut scene........

    The first time you can go for this achievement is right after the plane crash. If you miss, you can reload the checkpoint. You will have to watch at least half of the cut scene like shown in the video or he will not throw the dynamite.

    Do not run near the ramp on the other side of the enemy. You may trigger a checkpoint and will have to go for this later. It's easier to wait, but this is for people who want to knock this out right away.

    Minor Spoilers**

    *Game DVR does not catch achievement pops, but that's when I unlocked it.

    CONFIRMED that this can be done after completion of the story, just hit continue and go to shanty town and there will be enemies there that will throw explosives at you.
