    This is really easy done on the 1st play.

    The way they spawn is 3 TAKEN at the start, then 1 climbs up the cliff face, then 2 more keep on spawning to the left where the first 3 TAKEN spawn.

    But i have found that the prolouge after picking up the Flare Gun is a hell of a lot easyer due to the amount of Taken spawing, so all u have to do is load up the check point and you have your achievments. Just keep looking at your "STATS PAGE" so you know what you have done

    I myself only got the pistol, flare, dodge and the 25 dodges in that one area,so its a win win situation.

    Killing them all for the achievements will not take long at all.

    Hope this helps u get some easy achievments.

    xCHRONIC KAOSxThis is my first video solution so i sorry about the quality, but im so used to looking at the solution and not being able to watch what has to be done so i jumped in and tried to make this the best i can, but as i say in this solution it can help get other achievments so that you can enjoy the rest of the game.
    Hope this helps some what

    Apostle92627I had to kill 41 Taken before I finally got it. I'd do a cinematic dodge against the Taken until I got it to work. If it killed me I tried again until it worked. lol...

    This can be done pretty early on in the game, find yourself up against a few Taken and wait for them to swing, when they do hit LB and a direction and you should go into a slow mo dive! Keep doing that and you're sorted, if they manage to get a few hits on you just take one or two out and do it against the last guy!

    After learning how to properly execute a cinematic dodge from the tutorial you'll earn this achievement fairly early. Whenever you get close to a Taken you'll want to time your dodge just right, pressing the LB button away from your enemy to cue a Slow-motion dodge.

    Note: This achievement is also known to be somewhat glitchy and may take several attempts before popping your 25G achievement!
