    As others have said this will come naturally by playing the game especially on Supernova.

    If your like me and like to get the easy achievements out of the way just do this:

    Start a game up, as soon as you land and are walking along following the prompts (tutorial). You get to a section where you jump down and are told you need medical aid and to use your Medical Inhaler.
    *This can be done at anytime you have inhaler charges.


    1.Now use the inhaler 11 times (LB). Save your game again in another slot. This updates the achievement tracker.

    2.Now load your first save and use the inhaler 11 times again. Save to your second save.

    3.Repeat till you get achievement takes about 20 minutes.

    Edit: Per Kerman7 this carries over on multiple playthroughs.

    Eternal8laze591Ugh. This is super obnoxious. Tracker has completely stopped updating. Tried using the Inhaler across several saves. This has happened a few times with only this game. Really annoying.

    WhyattThrashProgress towards these achievements get stored when you save. So if you perform actions, then die or otherwise load a save game without saving in between, then no progress will be stored and the tracker won’t update.

    Also, at the end of any given playthrough you will “naturally” have a few hundred unused inhalers, making this really quick to get. ;)

    SpeciallyTDerpMy progress got stuck at 99%. Starting a new game fixed it.

    - Pressing cn_LB will cause you to use a medical inhaler (used to heal you)

    - This could come naturally if your going for all the cheevs

    - Keep in mind you can create medical inhalers yourself in the menu using healing items! (use only one slot to maximize your inhaler uses)

    - Remember the SAVE trick to help you grind this out faster
    One trick that helps with all of the "do this X amount of times" cheevs...use the SAVE feature to RELOAD SAVES helping you grind those out easier. *However people have said that it can cause the tracker to stop going if this happens, try saving after you do one run, SAVE on a new file, then RELOAD the old one. Rinse & Repeat.

    As Sashamorning said, reloading your save won't work.

    The easiest way is to start a game on easy (Story), kill and loot as many people as you can, when available, unlock the "Snake Oil Salesman" perk in the Tier 2 perks tree, it will grant you 50% more Bits for each item you sell.

    Then go to a vending machine and sell everything you have, you will need to visit multiple vending machines so make sure you have fast travel points in different areas, buy 300 health consumables, they don't have to be Adreno.

    Depending on your Medical skill (under Tech), you will have between 1 and 4 Inhaler slots. If you have 2 or more, fill them with anything you have, use the Inhaler until your slots are empty, fill them again with something else, rince, repeat and the Achievement will pop

    I recommend using the Achievement Tracker for this even though it's quite glitched with this game (stops tracking and requires to restart the game).

    A BatwomanIf you have a lot of Raptidon Meat you can get this pretty easy or at least more %.
