far as i know this only works in single player i tried doing it split screen but it did not work(dont know if this will be different for others) so start up first chapter in the sacrifice the docks find a white barrel there is 2 of them near the start of this level like u go down some stairs to the left its like a min from wer u start just wait for a special infected to spawn stay near barrel as possable shot the barrel when they are near it then when they die the achiev will pop.

for me a boomer spawned i shoot the barrel then the achiev poped i dont know if this wil be different for others

update:this can be in versus mode splitscreen, changed the permissions to system link.
thanks to Will072 for info :)

update:Versus splitscreen works perfectly
Also, the explosion doesn't have to kill the SI, it works if the SI burns to death as well.
thanks to stianhk for info :)

Z3RO 37 Confirmed that SYSTEM LINK works. thanks

Can't get this to work...always try to kill boomer in system link...maybe it's the update i got? (4MB)
