    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.

    CultOfLuna64100% the Grand Imperial Mall travel point. Bunch of enemies stood near explosives just to the right, under a crane. Worked first time.

    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.

    This suits the situation where you sided with Netwatch in the "I Walk The Line" mission, in which you can't easily find Voodoo hacker enemies after the mission.

    This method DOES NOT require any intelligence level, you only require a large RAM OS to be bought in any doctors. Currently, in 1.06 the item stack bug still works for "copying" the €$4000 painting.

    Fast travel to "Chapel" fast travel point and go upstairs, walk a little bit you will see several tents, turn left in the tent area and go to the end of the road you will see 3 enemies watching TV. They will drop the purple "Detonate Grenade" quick hack.

    After that, find any places where 3 of the enemies stack together, don't try it in the police enemies, because normally police do not carry lethal grenades which you can't get the achievement. I suggest finding any voodoo cult gathering places because normally they have more than 5 enemies standing in the stack.

    It may be possible to use the "Detonate Grenade" on the 3 enemies stacked in the 2nd screenshot because their position looks like stacking(As I got my achievement from voodoo cult gathering I can't verify this to be working)
