    You'll probably want to get this achievement on missions "Uplift Reserve" or "Data Hive" (if Campaign, but FireFight also possible) since there are plenty of needlers and enough enemies to get this achievement.

    As you probably already know, grunts are the easiest ones to kill. Try to focus on them, followed by the other covenants.
    If fighting a brute, don't waste your needler ammo until it has lost its shield/armor (meaning, use another weapon). When you finally see the brute's ugly face, finish him with the needler.

    Play those missions on easy if you like. This way, you'll do more damage and your health won't drop as much as on Heroic or Legendary.

    Remember that if you get killed, you will return to last checkpoint and... last obtained needler kills.

    You will get this easily, trust me!

    PS: Some people seem to give a negative evaluation on this solution.
    I really don't mind getting thumbs down, but at least have the decency of sharing "why-you-don't-agree" with other gamers!

    DKong27 I go this on Easy Firefight on Crater (first time playing too). It is difficult if you are on early waves or low difficulty as they tend to die before the explosion. Easier on Brutes, even if they still have shielding.

    Doc Buddha I've given you a thumbs down as you have given an incorrect bit of info, & missed out one very important thing...

    The missed bit - a supercombine needler kill is where you pump a full clip of needles into an enemy & it finishes with an explosion. If you miss one and don't get the explosion at the end then finish him off with another needle it won't count towards this achievement.

    The incorrect bit - if you get a full-clip-hit supercombine explosion it will even take out a brute shield so you don't need to deplete his shield first, just make sure you hit with the full needle clip.

    Also - one additional thing, as it takes a full clip you must reload before you start shooting. It's not the number of needles that hits that counts, it the full clip from start to finish.

    SmactSilly Doc Buddha, thanks for explaining that. I had no idea and I thought there was something missing from this solution.
