    This can be easily completed in Chapters 3 & 4.

    When you are attacked by the Pack in Chapter 3, dance around until you get them grouped, then shoot one with the Javelin Gun. Press RB, and it will emit electricity from the javelin shocking the others.

    The other place is in Chapter 4, when you enter the Renunion Chapel through normal story progression. Wait for the Slasher to climb the rail, then hit him with the javelin. Immediately press RB, and you will shock the Swarm crawling all over the floor. This is where I got it.

    BeacIf you keep missing opportunities for groups of monsters remember that it doesn't have to be done all at once. You just have to electrocute another necro after sticking one with a regular Javelin. So if there's a pair of necros that will count as one kill toward the cheev. Just do it a couple more times and it will pop.

    Juanblue85Yup this worked quite effectively at first I had a hard time trying to get it so what I did is after making the female tripod runaway and the pack started to show up was to go upstairs and run down hallway I managed to do it there where they were all together this spot also works when trying to do the My Boom Stick Achievement.

    CruelCahalThe ONLY way your method for Chapter 4 will work is if you run in and stasis the tiny enemies after the drop from the ceiling, then when the Slasher climbs over the rail, shoot him and you can shock the frozen enemies.

    Another simple one. Just hit the fat/pregnant necromorph with a javelin or two and as he goes down trigger the alt fire. the shock will wipe out all the little crawlers that are going to come out of him and trigger the achievement. First ones I found were in Chapter 6.

    mattk85This method worked a treat, and is much easier to set up than some other solutions.

    By chapter 6-7, the Pregnants first appear. Shoot a javelin spear on the belly (yellow part) of the pregnant. It's the fat one.

    That will cause the pregnant to release it's payload (annoying Necromorphs). Quickly press the alt fire button, killing the 4-5 annoying enemies that spawn by damaging the belly.

    The achievement will now be yours.
