    A great place to get infinite amount of limbs severed AND no need to waste ammo is right after the eye poke machine in Chapter 14 when the Regenerator/Ubermorph spawns. Keep using stasis and melee/stomp him and allow him to regenerate. Use the stasis recharge machine to fill up your stasis when low. A great method since you're near the end and may need the last hundred or so limbs.

    *NOTE: This method works best on Casual difficulty since anything harder will require more hits to disable the Regenerator/Ubermorph and will probably come out of stasis before you can do so.*

    i had 1450 limbs by the time i got here. speeding it up, i just smashed the guy from the back everytime he got up to speed things along, however, he hit me 33% of the time. failed twice. so i restarted, sold everything and bought 25 med packs and then did it again without worrying if he hit me. I never saved so when i was done, i just reloaded and had everything back. Might be an obvious move, but didnt think of it until after i failed twice.

    ITz l Blaze lSo does it still count if you die? Or if I am about to die should I just reload the checkpoint?

    This Epic Dismemberment of 2500 Necromorph Limbs can be even accumulated until Chapter 13 in Round 1.

    Stomp on the dead bodies' connected Limbs of Necromorphs - even those that you have found already dead.

    Nine Limbs per certain type of body can be dismembered - it means, that almost 278 certain Necromorphs in a human-alike shape, would have to be completely destroyed. The fact is that the number of Necromorphs you have to dismember Limbs from is greater than this value, since you will encounter Necromorphs that are in different shapes, and a lesser amount of body parts can only be dismembered on those others.

    To completely dismember a Necromorph, create an explosive impact on target creature - you may love to use the Contact Beam, or Hacker Contact Beam as you will succeed most efficiently. Stand in the middle and hit RB by using this ultimate weapon of destruction - wipe out the enemy that has crowded you - no longer you will be overwhelmed by these creatures of death and insanity. Fight back Terror with power!

    Additional Information: Dismembering human corpses is irrelevant in order to accumulate Achievement progression. However, Infectors would be unable to transform human corpses into Necromorphs if they have been dismembered appropriately. The amount of Necromorphs is identical regardless to Round and Difficulty Setting. This Achievement's progression can only be accumulated in Single Player. It is relative to Save Game record, and can be continued by playing New Game+.

    While it's not likely that you're going to pick up this achievement on your first play through, and stomping on each and every corpse can be a chore, you can shorten your stomping by using weapons that explode or shear multiple limbs and playing on casual to make it easier to knock them off.

    The Detonator works extremely well for this and often takes off all of a necromorphs limbs and kills it in one shot, often along with that of anything else nearby, although black necromorphs are exception and can take two or three shots. Other guns that are decent are the Force Gun at point blank range, the timed mine alt fire for the Line Gun, and the alt fire on the Javelin Gun after you have spec'd into its explosive special at the end of the upgrade tree.
