There are also some spots in the story where this is possible:

In the opening area of Mephisto's Realm there are five trials you have to do before entering the next area. And enemies keep respawning in most of these trials until you have achieved the goal.

My choice is where you have to kill some demons in a center circle to continue.

Instead just throw them off the ledge. The easiest is to do this with two characters in Arcade, but kill off the other one, and keep it in backup if you mess up. If you play normally with four there is a chance that the others kill the demons before you get to throw them off. Plus you don't have to think about that the other characters can be possessed.

Easiest with the buffiest characters. Hulk or Colossus.


The plusside here is that the enemies don't carry weapons and can be quickly tossed off the cliff.

The backside is that it is boring beyond belief to do this in the same location for almost two hours. (They move slowly)
Thestas1I went the way of Albajos. Since I went 3 times on easy, med, and hard, I loaded up a team with people I had yet to unlock outfits for. It takes one throw to kill those leapers so you can get to 175 kills pretty fast, kill that hero, and work on the next. Work on like 5 acievements simultaniously.

Amigo NLYes, Mephisto's Realm is the best way to do this.

StaticDynamiteI got it in the battle vs. Galactus. I was carrying an enemy (as Colossus) and Galactus grabbed me and glitched. He remained stuck until I triggered the 3 consoles, so I took this time to throw his minions continually off the ledges. They re-spawned every time I killed one.

Also I used Spider Man's web warrior ability, if you hold it for a couple seconds you can fling people very far.

CKinALthis is the location i did it, if you stand right by the spawn point it won't take longer than 30-45 minutes. boring still non-the-less

Leo AscendentDo you know if this carries across playthroughs? Or if it has to be done in one game?

albajosI would be very suprised if it carries over, since it isn't really many stats that do that to begin with.

VoodooN88Definitely the sweet spot for this, during normal playthrough, standing at the initial shield extract point with the center pentagon north of you- go to the lower left trial. ( I think it's the closest)

Was using Colossus and was tossing an avg of 2-3 every 10 seconds (sometimes I tried to grab them to soon after they dropped from the spiked rings)

Honestly I was looking more to lvl up some instead of getting the achievement at that point It is a very good spot for that as well.. but once you complete it :/.. I don't think there is another spot in the game that works quite as well.

snorlax789I think that this carries over playthroughs. I got it last night in my second playthrough of the game, and I definitely had not thrown 500 guys off a ledge during the second playthrough.

I don't understand this, there are no infinite enemies, been going for this and 4000 kills and arcade wins, I've gone through all the levels due to once killing them they don't come back, so the only enemies I can fight are in the sim discs....also I've won 126 rounds and only just got 20 wins....I hate this game now

blood eruptionI found the easiest way is to do it here but with doctor strange, use levitation, you fling em off so fast....
