    You can easily get this during the campaign. You'll first get the Scorcher right before turning on the power in the facility in Act 3. From then on, you'll face only Wretches for a long period of time. Simply use the Scorcher on every Wretch you see, they'll go down incredibly quickly on Normal difficulty. You should find plenty of ammo as long as you explore the side rooms a bit, and remember that a perfect active reload on the Scorcher gives you a longer flame, so you can start hitting the Wretches from farther away.

    If need be, after you shut down the AI, you'll fight a bunch of Sires. They go down very quickly as well and rush you like Wretches.

    GrouxAs Codster2005 states, in Act 3 Chapter 2 you get a flame thrower and about 3 checkpoints into the act you get to a checkpoint when you go outside to a courtyard in the rain. Kill the wretches outside, then kick the double-doors down and about 10 wretches will rush out at you. Kill them, then load last checkpoint 2 more times and you're done in all of five minutes. Do it on casual to make it even easier.

    Easiest to do in "Horde" mode. After the first couple of waves, one of the new enemies will be "Flame Boomers", they carry the "Scorcher Flamethrower", So once you kill take their weapon. I would suggest you only use it on wretches and drones because they die fastest and you don't have a lot of fuel for the flamethrower. Every wave there will be at least one "Flame Boomer" so just keep picking up the weapon off their dead bodies and repeat.

    this one is very easy i did it by playing annex with bots
    i made every weapon a flametrower and burnt all enemies
    and if you die you'll respawn in 5 sec and then you can pick up a new flametrowher and start again and then ding achievement you can use this method for other weapons
