    This requires you to kill 250 enemies in ANY of the three games and across them. In other words, you'll definitely get the achievement simply by playing, but if you are a completionist, it will pop-up in the first game. Shepard has to be the one taking the final shot.

    UPDATE 17.05.2021: Please do not downvote the solution because the achievement is buggy! :(

    Today's update from BioWare should help you understand that the fix to the achievement was needed:

    WEBHEAD78OStill bugged even after the update, I think? Had 90 some kills on the 17th which was when I first heard about the bug from the patch notes.. checked yesterday and my kills had dropped down to 40 something.. now played a bit today and my kills have reset again and I have like 15 now. So patch was 2 days ago and clearly not fixed..

    Beddie WAnybody's achievement STILL not tracking for them? The entirety of my achievements are bugged out and not tracking but I've beaten ME1 on Insanity, got all of the achievements involved but the kills has still not popped. And for the other achievements, my progress isn't displayed, like ever. Is there a potential fix?

    Allgorhythm@Heistotron - I believe the patch fixed this but it is not retroactive. Moreover, the achievements won’t track in ME1. You can see your kills in ME2 but I’d advise against going back & forth between ME1 & ME2 to check up on ME1 kills. Instead, I’d recommend getting the achievements continuously playing one of the games. ME2 is ideal because, unlike ME1, there are places where you have incessant enemy waves—seemingly infinite respawns—Reaper IFF & Dossier: Archangel to name a couple. In Reaper IFF the husk spawns at the end are infinite provided you do not destroy the core as the mission objective requires.

    striker2Same here, got the completionist achievements but no 250 kills , just finished Ilos , haven't played me2 or 3 yet

    AllgorhythmYou should get the kills easily with ME2. There are many more enemies than ME1 especially on some of the recruitment missions. When you go to achievements in ME 2, it will show you your progress towards the achievements so you can confirm whether or not the patch has fixed your problems.

    ajgoesUNLUCKYI had about 1,800 kills pretty far into Mass Effect 2, then went back to Mass Effect 1 to earn the Paramore acheevos (which worked), & all my kills reset.
    As of now I have over 525 kills, much more than the 2,000 I’d need (1,800+525=2,325)
    So beware ya’ll

    A DEAD B0DY MANWhere do u see kills? Not achievement tracker right? Nothing shows there... Like no % progress on anything

    AllgorhythmIn ME2 under Extras -> Achievements from the main menu. It will show you stats for tracked achievements. You'll be able to see achievements within game when you get the Normandy 2. There will be an icon on your desk on the top deck. It will show achievements and tracking stats.

    MandriliumGot this one yesterday after just a few missions in ME2 (I've only made the mordin clinic mission so far, you can check my achievements). So it definitely counted my kills from ME1 plus the few from ME2. Maybe the patch fixed the reset when you change games.

    LinkedTortoiseThis one is bugged for me at least. I just got Soldier in ME1 but I don't have this one.
