    This is sprinkled throughout the comments on the other solutions, but just in case you're like me and don't read those ahead of time, here's a warning. Don't try to do this against offline bots. You WILL NOT get the achievement like that. You'll make progress here and there, so you'll think you're doing ok, but the progress will randomly bounce up and down and your kills won't be counting.

    Also, once you start working on this, don't go back to offline bots until you're done as it will still screw with it. I also recommend against playing in public matches as things can get weird if the host quits and you get kicked.

    So, do these in a private match and you'll be ok. NikiBaby219 already posted a great guide, so you can follow that in private matches and get this.

    Can confirm you do not need to do all the kills for the achievement. I done every grab kill. Every environment kill. And the 3 specific kills with each jason except from part 4. I also never had to reach level 108-125 for the last 3 grab kills. Achievements have been a little weird in the game and unlocked early than they should be so hopefully it'll work out and you'll get it 6 kills early. Just find a boosting partner and knock it out just over an hour for each

    Just a note, i had one kill left, no idea what it was. Then went for the kill jason as tommy achievement and unlocked that and this, so if you cant figure out which one youre missing and havent done the kill jason achievement, try it, it might be what you need. Weird I know.
Do you have a question about this achievement? Please post it in the Friday the 13th: The Game Forum
