    Spawn at a point which is located near many enemies (gang memebers). It's best if it the location is close to a gang leader as their locations are usually crawling with gang members. I find this achievement easiest if you use the missle launchers. Select the "Hothead" and the "Firefly" as your primary and secondary weapon. They both have long range and deal a great amount of explosive damage.

    Now use your missle launchers from a distance and pick off groups of enemies. Once you are low on ammo, return to the spawn point to reload, then back to your gang leader location to pick off more enemies with your missle launchers. Repeat and have fun.

    Be sure to be careful with your aim and try to not hit any civilians as it will alert the agency.

    This will give you good experience to build on your Explosive rating and also earn the Explosives Expert achievement.

    JMJimmyThe Intellicenter supply point (esp. at night) is particularly good for this achievement as there are very few pedestrians, it sits between Timbo! & Fang-Yin, and you can also easily get

    Stay on the roof tops and use jump+lock on to kill enemies on the streets below. Even if you get the attention of the Agency you need not worry because they are so far below.

    You can also do one of the Time Trials, even if you die you keep the experience and respawn next to enemies.

    Only take explosive weapons and after a while the achievement will pop.
