    I based my method a lot on Doktor Zeit’s solution for “Tossball All-Star” -
    “ These are melee weapons that resemble lacrosse sticks, you can find one of them very early to the right of the workbench in your ship. Passive creatures also count towards this, a lot of my kills came from Sprats, the little green lizard type animals. There are a few pockets of these alongside the outer walls of Edgewater, they will respawn after enough time has passed, if you crouch before killing them it will also count towards the 50 stealth kills achievement.”

    The only variation I made was using the Prismatic Hammer found on Groundbreaker
    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***
    and using TTD.

    The only hangup might be with actually assuring that you hit the weakspot of the sprat. I got the achievement on my second kill after making sure I hit it’s head. It was looking right at me but the sneak attack still registered. It might have been a delayed pop, but you might have to swing at a few to assure you get it. You could potentially use another science weapon that’s easier to aim at but I did it with the hammer because it had the highest damage of all the science weapons I had at that point, even with my nonexistent melee skill.

    Edit: Thanks to Reborn Insanity and YoDz who point out that there are sprat in the Rest-N-Go area right next door to where you pick up the hammer. If you happen to pick up the hammer after reading this you can attempt this about 20 feet from it. Just make sure to save before incase you don’t get it!

    Lockie Got it first time on a sleeping Sprat outside Edgewater. Entered TTD and hit it right in the mouth with the hammer as it yawned at me. laugh

    ORGET0RIX I just got this as well. I don’t know how important this is, but I got mine on the Sprat near Gladys, with the prismatic hammer. What finally got me to get this, was picking up the confidence perk in tier 3. This gives you a guaranteed critical hit after a kill.
