    Like Thebloodytruth - I got this on the mission where you kill 10 Rakk in Arid Badlands. This is a more in-depth look at Thebloodytruth's solution 1:

    You will probably have the ability to drive a vehicle by the "Kill 10 Rakk" mission. Select a vehicle with the rocket launcher as the turret weapon. Hop in the driver's seat and take off. Drive until the Rakk are grouped together and come flying at you. Lock onto the one of them with the A button and cut loose with the rockets. The resulting explosion usually damages surrounding enemies - which makes quick work of a pack of enemies.

    forced2changemmm, never thought about the co-op part. I would guess (unless it works like Fable 2 achievements, "...you or someone in your world..." <---paraphrasing there) that you would have to be the one doing the killing and not the driver. Anyone else?

    forced2changeLet me clarify what I just typed about driver/gunner. IF you are playing by yourself, then you control the turret and the vehicle...this will allow you to easily lock on a pack of enemies and kill them.

    IF you are playing co-op, I don't believe you can use the lock on feature. Whoever controls the turret must do it manually. IF you are in control of the turret, then I GUESS that you would get the achievement and not the driver. Again, that's a guess.

    I got this achievement right outside Nine-Toes hideout, so it can be done very early in the game. If you don't see any Rakks, look for their shadows on the ground.

    Easy way to kill Rakks:

    Find a wall to put your back against. Shoot at the Rakks in the air but don't hit them. This causes them to dive at you and they come to attack together. Equip any automatic weapon (SMG or machine guns with a high rate of fire and not 3 round bursts are excellent). The just fire away as they dive at you all clustered together.

    The key to this achievement is to unload a lot of bullets on a pack of Rakk. There are several things that you can do to make this easier, if you're having any trouble.

    1. Complete a mission which requires you to kill Rakk. I unlocked my achievement on the mission in the Arid Badlands which requires you to do so.

    2. Play with as many people as you can. The more players in your game, the more enemies that will spawn.

    3. Play with lower-level players. While it may not be very entertaining to blast your way through low-level enemies, it will allow you to kill Rakk very quickly.
