    This is a lot less time consuming after the latest update.

    You can now buy EMP MK-III for 2563 credits for any of your mechs and get it done with it.

    Just select your preferred mech, select ITEMS via left side menu, scroll to EMP MK-III buy and equip it. And go to match or find boosting partner and kill em while they are under effect of emp.

    StK IThanks for adding this, also worth mentioning that you can totally do this in co-op team death match vs bots (there were no pvp servers up when I checked the server browser)

    Hexa FoxThis is really awesome. I thought we were going to be boosting this for a long time to unlock the extra mechs or buying one. +1

    Edit: My guide is now outdated. Rayleigh187 has posted an updated guide. I will keep this guide up however because it is still a plausible way to get the achievement and still has some good information.

    There are two mechs that come with the EMP automatically equipped. Those two mechs are the Marauder and the Raider. The Marauder is the closest to being unlocked from the start. From the Web view of the mechs, buy the mech to the left of the starting mech as you will need to get past it unless you plan on using buyable in-game currency. After that there will be 3 mechs to chose from, chose the one above the Berserker (the one you just bought). From there, you will need to buy the next one up, that will be the Marauder and it will contain the ability to EMP enemies.

    Note: This achievement was glitchy for me, I had to fulfill the requirements 3 times before it gave me my achievement.

    EDIT: If you're finding the process of getting credits too boring or long, then know that the amount of credits for a match is determined by how long you are in the match and if you win or lose (meaning you can afk and still get roughly the same amount of credits). There are also many challenges in the game that give credits .

    Fenom007I did it without a boosting partner and did it the exact same way all three times, but it only decided to pop on the third time.

    EhrenfriedIt popped the first time I tried.
    You have to kill the enemy EXACTLY when the green EMP lightings are around him.
    (They last only a few seconds, 4 sec. I believe.)
