To unlock this achievement, you need to kill 5 enemies in a single shot using the Titan Primary Weapon, the Arc Cannon.

The first step in earning this achievement is to reach Level 21, which is when the Arc Cannon is unlocked. At which point, you can go into a custom Titan loadout and select it as your primary weapon.

What makes this achievement possible is the nature of the Arc Cannon. As the name implies, multi-kills come by way of shooting at a single enemy that is closely surrounded by other enemies, and after hitting the first, the electrical beam "arcs" outwards to the closest enemies, damaging them as well.

None of the enemies need to pilots, which is beneficial because they are not always killed by a single shot, while Spectres and Grunts are. That being said, this is the easiest way to earn this achievement:

Join a game type that utilizes lots of A.I. Grunts and Spectres (Attrition and Hardpoint work best, I earned this in a Campaign Attrition game), and play until you can call in your Titan. Using your Titan with the Arc Cannon equipped, head for the area of the map where the A.I. players are constantly being dropped down by pods. The location this happens varies by map, but it is often near the middle, or off to one specific side. (By level 21 you should have a fair idea of where to go in each map).

Since A.I. units drop in pods with 3 in each, you'll need to resist killing them until another pod drops, or until a couple other stragglers walk into fairly close proximity to a newly dropped pod. When you can see 5 enemies all fairly close together (no more than about 5 feet distance from one to the next), simply pick one, preferably the closest to the middle, aim, and fire.

You do not need to charge the shot at all, as even a completely uncharged shot will kill any A.I. unit, and the cannon's beam does not lose any damage when it arcs. If the enemies were close enough, the beam will arc to all of them within range, and kill them all at once. The achievement will pop almost immediately afterwards, so if it doesn't, then you'll need to try again. This achievement seems harder than it is, and if you follow that simply method, you'll likely get it very quickly. I earned this during the first match after equipping the Arc Cannon, and I wasn't even attempting it.

Happy Hunting!
