    deutschZuidMrFraggs, thanks for posting this. However I don't seem to hear any voiceovers? Also it doesn't really tell me what you need to do (different) to get the achievement.

    Rather than relying on luck, such as them walking into electric wires or stumbling off of a cliff, there are two very reliable ways to do this.

    The first is if you can find a Taken nearby a possessed object. Align yourself so that the Taken is between you and the object and just dodge when it fires. This will wipe out the Taken in one fell swoop and get you one notch towards this achievement.

    The second is in any area where you see the red and white explosive canisters. Any Taken that are blown up by these will count towards this achievement so these are the easiest way to get this achievement. In Episode 2 there are a number of chances to use these to blow up enemies so this will be the biggest chance for you to work towards this achievement.

    I found a fairly easy way to get this achievement.

    In Episode 3, when you encounter the possessed bulldozer, around 3 or 4 Taken enemies spawn with it. Use your Flashlight or flares to take down their protection, then just run around and lead them into the path of the bulldozer. Once the initial wave of Taken is killed, one enemy will respawn after a few moments. Just light him up, lure him into the bulldozer, and repeat until the achievement pops. Took me about 8-10 minutes.

    Before then I probably only got about 2-3 kills through pure luck with environmental causes (like stumbling a Taken off a ledge, or catching one in a Safe Haven light after kickstarting a generator). This is probably the most painless way of getting the achievement, and it's rather satisfying watching a ghost bulldozer mow down possessed loggers/axe murderers.

    Apostle92627Yeah, the bulldozer gave me my last kill. I actually thought I killed the bulldozer for a second but nope. I died a few seconds later. I killed the bulldozer on my next try though!

    It was also my 20th poltergeist object destroyed so I got "They're Heeeeeeeeeeere!" on top of that. laugh
