    If, like me, you found no n-ray weapons OR mods up to reading this however, this is for you;

    Shortly after Phineas' lab is raided, making it the second to last mission in the game, you are tasked with going into his normally sealed off lab section after a brief fight.

    In his room, Phins Phorce, a light machine gun with n-ray as its damage, is sitting plainly on a desk.

    I put it on, saved my game, went to Tartarus, the games final location, and used it exclusively to kill the enemies in my way. The gun, with its 53x3 damage, always seemed to effect my enemies, and doing relatively high damage to organics, lead to a quick, easy 20 kills.
    Note, I kept firing until they died, I didnt wait to see if n-way acted like poison. Supposedly its like Slag from Borderlands, only increasing damage to more n-ray as opposed to other damage types.

    I hope this helps! I hunted for ages but either RNG was unkind, or I missed getting this earlier.

    Happy hunting (>*_*)>

    AllOvaMyself While I didn't find any weapons already imbued with N-ray damage (besides the Prismatic Hammer, but that really doesn't help as it cycles through the other damage types) I did find weapon mods that added the effect.

    One mod is called "Mr. N" and adds N-ray damage to melee weapons. The drawback is that it drops the weapon's damage output by 50%.

    The other is called Mag-2-Ray and can make guns do N-ray damage, but this also comes with a 50% damage reduction.

    Not ideal, but they're still there...

    The SCHWARTZ 00 ^ that's why I didn't bother buying those mods. The damage decrease wasn't worth the bits. I would encourage everyone to just follow this guide and wait until the end.

    AllOvaMyself @The SCHWARTZ 00 - I never bought any of them either, just found them while looting.

    As I pointed out, they aren't ideal, but in a pinch they'll still help you get the achievement.
