This achievement requires you to kill all 5 Smelter Bots around the game.

The first is located at the start of the game by the med-bay, instead of going right around the outside of the building to get to the P.A.X fight, keep going towards the right, behind some pipes will be the first bot, beware as these guys can one shot you early on so it may be worth to come back later.

The second and third bot spawn in the middle of the recycling floor, they will be on their own platform separated by a small gap. You can either jump the gap or go upstairs and activate the bridges. There does seem like a bug with these as on my second and third playthrough of NG+ one of them didn't appear but the coin was there.

The fourth bot in order will be in the old biolabs area. When you finally get outside to the right of the Large Greenhouse facility will be a small gap leading into the toxic waste. The smelter bot is sitting here, beware as the gas does increasingly more damage the longer you stay in as well as some drones will shoot you. The good thing is there is a first aid machine at the top of the stairs where you come in from so you can plan ahead to heal here and then return. Recommended to come back later when you have good weapons and a lot of healing.

The last smelter bot is hard to miss as when you come back to the main facility from the biolabs you will see a large bridge where the enemies are attacking each other. Using your new drone powers you can open the gate behind these enemies and reveal another guard and smelter bot in the corner.

Final bit: these don't have to be on the same playthrough, if you kill 4 on one playthrough, as long as on NG+ you kill the one you are missing the achievement should pop.
