    There is a very easy way to get this achievement on the Prologue as Vader.

    A fair bit into the level, you will come across a series of bridges. You will know you're in the right spot when you see a TIE Fighter crash through one of the bridges.

    If you continue to the next little hut ahead of you, there will be an unlimited spawn of Wookiees in the hut farther ahead. You can easily just Force Grip and toss each over the edge as they approach, and they will just keep respawning. I got my achievement within 20 minutes using this method.

    This is also an ideal spot to get the other force power mastery achievements, such as Force Push and Lightsaber Throw. The only two that Vader cannot get are the Lightning and Lightning Shield achievements.

    In all likelihood, you got this game to play through it, and if you're like me, you glanced at the achievement list, saw lots of "kill tons of enemies," and you thought to yourself: "No problem, I'm playing through the entire game. I'll pick it up as I go along."

    Now, you're sitting there, like me, wondering where to go with this after completing that story mode since you cannot replay the prologue AND your kills won't carry over to your Sith Master save, nor can you carry them over to that Jedi Temple DLC. That means all of the wonderful solutions you've been reading won't work at all if you want to keep all of your progress. Are the Jedi Temple and Prologue good places for this? Sure, if you haven't started or want to start over.

    My personal grinding point for this and all the other "kill with skill" achievements was the Tie Fighter Factory, right at the beginning at the level. You spawn in a hallway with some droids (wipe them out if you haven't grabbed the kill 35 droids achievement; oh yeah, and the droids of my enemies are my enemies so they totally count as kills too), and once you get to the end of this hall, you bust the door open with Force Push, and you're in a room with some rebels and some Stormtroopers. At the far end of the walkway where you enter is an unlimited force powerup.

    Force Grip is where you make sure an enemy is highlighted, press RT, and then use the control sticks to toss them. Trouble with laser bolts deflecting? Reset the yellow talent spheres in Force Upgrades under the pause menu and build them all back up except Defense Mastery to lower your ability to deflect the bolts.

    Clear the room which is about 40 or so enemies (nearly 50 if you grab the six droids in the hallway as well; yeah, the droids of my enemies are my enemies). Pause the game. Save it. Select Mission Select, then Tie Fighter Factory, and then Load Previous Save. You'll start at the beginning of that droid hallway. Do it again and again and again until you get the achievement, then pick your next skill, and do it again.

    How long will it take? Depends on how many you did during the story since this method at least respects that you probably have some kills on it. Happy grinding.

    ShadyShallHey! I gave you a thumbs up for all of your solutions and pointing this out. I will leave the same comment in each solution:

    This is a GREAT spot for grinding out. you get the droids at the beginning. a room full of rebels and troopers, and then at least 2 (sometimes i felt 3) elevator batches of another 10 troopers... it's great.

    I did not want to start a new game and do the prologue. i already had at least a 100 kills for each during the game, and was working naturally towards the mastery ones... this is a great spot. in a little less than an hour i got 2 of the 500 achievements. working on the rest tonight.

    Thanks for this. it is a hell of a grind... but it's not too bad when you are all leveled up. these guys are just shredded mince meat to you. grab a cup of coffee and enjoy the slaughter...

    EverStoned771st of all, thanks for this (these) guides as ShadyShall above me I too upvoted them all, they are very helpful for those force achievements that you know you are a good way through ... 2ndly, if any one was doubting whether or not droids actually do count towards these I can guarantee that they do since it was droids that made mine pop & since that was after a reload & 3-4 droids then it's safe to say that they do wave

    .Play Prologue on new game!! I suggest waiting at the first bridge after the one is destroyed by the tie fighter. they will keep jumping over to it and seem to spawn a little longer for I kept running out of them before the cheevo would pop but it may just be me.

    Change difficulty to sith master because Vader can not die in the prologue and you will have less chance of killing enemies with saber deflect! Also if they enemies stop spawning like they did for me just leaving you three random dudes coming every once and a while make sure to save and then quit and pick up on last checkpoint because it will save your kills.

    SIDE NOTE: if you are throwing them off the bridge and do not receive the green life orbs then I dont think it counts as a kill

    Rhynozerker.....that explains alot, I gave up on a few of these cheevos because I tallied atleast 700 kills with force grip, but the majority of them we thrown off the bridge

    ThePaleHorsemanIt does count throwing them off the bridge. I just got the achievement by doing so.
