    You will no doubt kill a few aliens over the course of the game but will likely need to grind the remainder.

    An easy place to grind is within a Hard difficulty Super Powered Fightclub activity, there is one in the centre of the map (Shown in the video) start the activity and complete the first wave.

    Now you'll start the second wave which is King Of The Hill, ignore the hill and instead stand on an open flat area. Several men with bats will continuously come for you and agro to you now which is perfect as these still count as aliens. Make sure you have the Stomp super power selected with cn_right and then press cn_RB to stomp the ground, hopefully they will die from the impact/colliding with a wall as they are low level aliens. (You may need to jump before Stomping else them hitting you will interrupt your attack)

    You have plenty of time on the counter to get all 150 but if you happen to fail make sure you EXIT the activity to start over else your kills will not count for your challenges (Though the achievement tracker will keep progress)

    WessmonsterExcellent farming spot, thank you so much. Got Super Stomp, Death from Above and the last 200 kills for I Am Become Death achievements in like 5 minutes.

    ReliantGung hoYou should also mention to choose the Rock variation of Super Stomp as well.

    Zarda1My issue was that kills were not counting. The above comment confirmed.

    I MooseJoose IFYI for anyone else who like me thought their achievement was glitched.. I was trying to grind this at the same time as 'Zoo Keeper', but it was stuck at 50%.

    It seems that the fight club method worked perfectly but ground pounding normal aliens outside of the activity wasn't recognising any additional kills for me.

    DwaggieniteAlso, slight addendum to the solution.

    If you're doing this at the end of the game after you've pretty much done everything else, I recommend jumping into the air, and holding cn_LT for 'Death From Above'. When your stomp has recharged, release cn_LT and press cn_RB to Super Stomp. Whilst you're waiting for the stomp to recharge, 4-5+ enemies will wait for you beneath you. Repeat this for easy kills.

    Ste4Beer85I was kicking ass all over Steelport with the Explosion Element activated and it wasn’t registering, Rock element works tho.
