    In Chapter 6, you return to the concourse and the lightspeed boy statue. There is a woman there that is killing a never-ending supply of Slashers (as long as you don't go too far forward which is the platform connecting the two sides).

    Here's a simple and safe (that word isn't used much in DS2...) way to get the achievement:

    Destroy the half-wall of glass between you and the woman using kinesis or by shooting it. Now, use your kinesis to grab the slasher arms laying around the floor by her. Next, you'll just TK shoot those slasher arms at the slashers she's fighting. A slasher comes from each end of the side she's on. She will shoot at the slashers a couple of times before killing them usually which will give you time to take them out instead. The slasher that enters furthest from you out of a vent usually lasts the longest in front of her. The slasher that enters from behind the wreckage near you is a much closer but quicker shot. Rinse and repeat.

    Pretty easy and doesn't take much time at all really!

    Crimson DrifterNice find, never would have thought of this. I personally didn't need to do this, but good guide!

    OnzaDon't advance too much, as if you do the endless respawn will stop. When you recognize the spot, it might be good to back track to the previous save (if you did not use it already).

    GeomancyExcellent solution. What worked best for me was killing the necromorphs that spawned to the right. Instead of killing them once they got to Ellie, I lined up my shot on the wall opposite me and simply waited for the necromorphs to run by into my line of fire. Once I got this down it was easy and fun. If I couldn't retrieve a necro bone from my kill zone to set up the next kill, I would let Ellie kill one and retrieve a bone from her kill zone.

    Another nice thing about this solution is you get to hear Ellie defiantly mouth off over and over at the necromorphs. I thought Sonita Henry did excellent voice work for the character, and this is one of her funnier scenes.

    The object that does most damage to Necromorphs is their own arms/claws. When you kill a Necro use kinesis on its body and you should take its claw. Simply shoot it at another Necro to impale him with it. In the beginning it takes two claws so you might want to weaken them before throwing the claw at them.

    Crimson Drifter is right poles kill a necromorph in one hit, however, claws are more common.

    Crimson DrifterAre you sure about that? Seems like the poles and spikes you find laying around do more damage then the claws. I was able to impale enemies to walls with one pole, versus 2 claws.

    OnzaYeah, any time I see those "lighted cue sticks" laying around, I figure I'm going to need them. I was bummed when I realized the exploding canisters were not counting, so now, on my second playthrough, it was claws and poles.

    Another great place to get this achievement is at the location that StrongProtector mentions in this post:-
    Dead Space 2It's a Trap!The It's a Trap! achievement in Dead Space 2 worth 36 pointsKill 20 enemies with Detonator Mines in a deployed state

    It takes some careful aiming/timing but.... Try to javelin (or detonate if you're going for the detonate achieve as well) one of the respawning Necro's to the wall, then use kinesis to pull one of his claw/limbs and use that to spear the next one that respawns. I played this on normal and the Necros here go down in one hit, allowing you repeat the method until the achievement unlocks.

    The position I used;
    Just as you first enter the area you'll see a 3-seat bench directly in front of you (with another up-turned bench laying in front of it). Move just behind the bench and look across the concourse to your right, to the other side. You should be looking at a store called "Bold Stylings". One of the Necros will continually respawn to the right of where you're looking and run across towards the left. Try to pin them here.
