    Detonate Grenade is an epic quality (purple) quickhack. I was able to craft it after unlocking the Hacker Overlord perk in the Quickhacking skill tree which requires 16 Intelligence.

    After that simply find a group of 3 enemies gathered close enough together to be effected by the blast radius of a grenade. Lower level NCPD events seem to be the most likely to have the ideal circumstances for the achievement.

    Edit: Apparently you can farm the group of enemies near the Chapel dataterm in Pacifica in order to get this as a drop. Mentioned in the comments by NoHeroes94 and confirmed by MyDanishReality.

    Edit 2: Video is not mine was posted in the comments by J2B9, all credit to the creator.

    TheIcemanComethWow, I was expecting this to be SO much harder gaining the Quickhack itself. I made one pass through the loop in the video and got both a Legendary Detonate Grenade AND a Legendary Suicide. Bloop was easy after that.

    DabbFor those of you wondering why those particular enemies disappear, I believe it has something to do with the "Walk the Line" mission that @J2B9 mentioned.


    On my run through that mission, I made some choices that resulted in Brigitte dying and me having to kill Placide (The asshole who tried to have you killed after using you to get to Netwatch). I believed if you took that path, then the only way you can get this quick hack is by crafting it. I'm doing a second playthrough anyway for missed endings and misplaced attribute points anyway, so I plan to knock it out then.

    It's unfortunate this long ass game has such easily missable achievements.

    Rubber DucksssI was about 50 hours into game, and decided to do this achievement. Unfortunately first 3 guys weren't there, thankfully I had a save before I did the mission I Walk A Line.
    After doing the method shown in the video for about 30 mins, I wasn't getting anywhere. I increased my difficulty to Normal, and reloaded my save. There is a male Netrunner in the area by the sofa. I killed all the enemies and got the drop first time.
    I then had to use the quick hack twice to get the achievement on the 3 guys by the stairs.
    Hopefully that helps anyone struggling like I was!:)
    +1 from me anyway 🦆

    Fast Travel to Pershing Street Once there head to the nearest Drop Point(South west of spawning), look to your right and see a deserted road/alleyway. walk down until you see 3 enemies sitting watching a TV.

    I had Level 3 Bloodware Lvl 3 (Quickhacks do 30% more damage) and Signal Support Lvl 2 (Increases quickhack duration by 50%. This will now allow non lethal grenades such as Incendiary and EMP to kill.

    Hope this guide helps as most of the enemies outside missions do not carry Frag grenades.

    Note, this suits the situation where you sided with Netwatch in the "I Walk The Line" mission, which afterward you can't find any Voodoo gang members in Pacifica.
