    I found this to be kind of a pain in the butt. For the record, it does not have to be 10 at a time, but rather just 10 over time. I tried over and over to get it so here is what I wound up doing:

    Go into firefight, put it on normal, choose a mode, I chose the grunt one and picked corvette as the location. I then went into the game options, changed the Spartan health to invincible, the ammo to unlimited. I went into the loadout and made my loadout a needler so that I didn't have to bother picking one up. I went also went into the wave option, and changed the grunts to elites. The reason I changed to elites is I found it too easy to kill grunts with the needler without using the explosion.

    Once into the game, pick an elite and shoot him with a burst that will just about kill him. If you shot enough needles, they will blow up and a pink star appears on the left of your screen for a few seconds. That star indicates that you got him with the explosion. Pick another elite and repeat, they don't even have to be close to each other. 10 of those stars show up over time, and the achievement pops.

    I tried a few ways to get this on some endless grunt modes, and it didn't seem to pop even after scoring 50k or a million with a needler as my primary weapon.

    Hope this helps clarify things for someone!

    I found this quite easy to do in Firefight (normal or harder).

    Go to the settings and choose Weapons and Damage and make the following changes.

    Damage Modifier: unchanged
    Melee Modifier: unchanged
    Primary Weapon: Needle Rifle
    Secondary Weapon: Needler
    Starting Equipment: Jet Pack
    Infinite Ammo: Bottomless Clip (Crucial: No reloading!)
    Equipment Usage: Unlimited

    Back out to the Game Options Menu and choose Spartan Settings. Ignore the options here -- they won't matter -- and choose the Base Traits Menu.

    Choose Shields and Health and makes the following changes:
    Damage Resistance: Invulnerable
    Immune to Headshots: Enabled
    Immune to Assassination: Enabled

    Personally, I like to set the waves on just elites. To do so, simply go under Game Options, choose Firefight Settings and Wave Properties and change these settings for Round 1, 2 and 3 Round Properties. For each Wave, Initial, Main and Boss, change these settings:
    Uses Dropship: Enabled
    Squad Selection Order: Ordered
    All Squads 1-5: Elites

    With invulnerable health, a needler, and unlimited ammo, you'll get this achievement in no time!

    The SharkopathI used ur setting but for some reason I didn't get the medal for the kills. The purple looking flower one. But what I did to fix it was I used the needle rifle and just did body shots. I got in it the first wave that way.

    You can this in either campaign or firefight.

    I did it in campaign, using both the needler and needle rifle both count as long as you get a combine explosion medal. If you are using the needle rifle dont aim for the head cos you'll kill them without a combine explosion.

    In campaign it has to be at least on normal difficulty and you have to do it all in one life, dying resets the counter.
