    Easiest way is to play Chapter 4 in Dark Carnival, head to the saferoom at the end and allow the AI to enter the saferoom. For me the AI kept killing the clowns before I hit them. Stay at the doorway or the hallway, once the horde is done move out of the hallway to call another horde.The AI will not bother you and you can get inside the saferoom to heal. Keep calling hordes till you get the achievement, should take 2 minutes or less depending on how many times you hit the same clown.

    When I got it I was able to honk the nose of one clown multiple times and it counted each. So if you can get a few hits on one clown that will help.

    Lozzy DentonI can confirm that - I managed to get 5 hits registered on a single clown by hitting him with a box of fireworks laugh

    Another Easy way to do this is when you go for GUARDIN' GNOME hit the clowns with the gnome. you can get like 4-5 melees on them before they die( the gnome melee is very very weak) if no one shoots them.

    To honk a clown's nose simply melee it. You will hear a honking sound after you hit them.

    These are uncommon infected, only found in the Dark Carnival campaign, very few in number. Just be on the lookout for these during this campaign, you will get it in time. It will count or you honk the same clowns nose more than once, but they will die after 2 or 3 either way.

    Also, you can't honk their noses if they're dead, so I recommend playing with a group of friends online or possibly killing the AIs
    (which really isn't worth it in the long run) so you have a better chance of finding a live clown to honk of the noses.
