    I had initially believed that this needed to be done just as you were dying to pop but it seems to be a bit trickier than that. When your health is down to the last portion of your health bar wait until an enemy is getting ready to attack you. Right before he attacks pop the flare and chase him off, burning away some of his shadow barrier in the process. This should pop the achievement.

    Take note that this may have been a bit of an achievement glitch. The achievement may only require that you pop off a flare just before you die (i.e. while your screen is grey) but I've seen it not work that way a few times. Doing it this way will spare you any confusion although you're likely to get it without trying through the course of the game.

    PSUConnJust as an add on, and this could have been a glitch, but I actually died right after popping the flare (while still grayed out) since I pulled it right as the Taken swung and it still unlocked for me.

    when the screen goes black and white use a HAND HELD FLARE and you will get this achievement i tried like 20 times with the flare gun until i realized you get the handheld flares in act 2 i believe. but this achievement only pops with a hand held falre.

    This can be a little misleading, basically when you are being attacked wait until your health goes right down (screen goes black and white and health bar flashes) and pop a flare scaring off the Taken, cheev central!
