fireworks achievements not glitched just poorly written

first of all my brother has dark void in ps3 and he has every trophy for it and i just got this game from a buddy a few days ago. i came on here and looked thru the forums and saw people was saying certain cheevos was glitched. since i did not beat the game or got enuff points i cannot speak on grease monkey but at far as fireworks is concerned i figured it out. i tried the method of the kill the 3 knights on 1-5 and repeat and i did that like 5 times to no avail then my brother told me that i was doing it wrong. ps3 trophy reads ''kill 10 by exploding a piece of dynamite in the air'' it still sound confusing but then my bro told me you dont throw the grenade at them you throw it above their heads so it could explode in mid-air and kill them. i tested it on my game and it worked like a charm. whats also nutz is that it you dont have do it with flying enemies at all lol u can but i killed all ground people when it popped which is easier because its easy to cook off a grenade and throw it above their head when they are on the ground rather than flying enemies who move around a lot. the people who unlocked it probably just got lucky after playing so many boards over and over and killing so much enemies did not realise some of those grenades they thru was actually thrown above their head to kill them. i hope this clears up the whole glitch thing whoever wrote the titles for this achievement on 360 should be ashamed of themselves. i might send a message to the person who wrote the achievement guide to put this strategy under the fireworks achievement if someone other than myself confirms it. whoever do not have it go on any board and try to do this strategy to ten people on the ground or flying and you will hear a familiar sound pop. lemme know

I can confirm this method works. I just did it on the crash site level, just after you first get grenades. Blow open the door and four watchers will rush out. Cook your grenade so it explodes over their heads and kills them,then kill yourself. Rinse and repeat until you get your achievement .Thanks to the OP for this time saving tip

Man, if this is actually true after hours of spamming grenades, I'll be PISSED.

360: Kill 10 airborn enemies using grenades
PS3: Kill 10 enemies by exploding a piece of dynamite in the air

Who the hell thought it would be a good idea to make them different?! Thanks Married2Mary, this will definitely end the glitched achievement worries

This worked for me, but it required a LOT more than 10 kills. I think I was somewhere in the 50's by the time it actually popped.

i dont see how it would take around 50 unless you did something wrong. the way i described is the correct method so all that crying about it being glitched is over. mad mac even found a certain way and level to get it. i send tailz a pm to change it on the achievement guide page but im pretty he or she is not worried about dark void anymore but this is the real deal ladies and gentlemen.

I played through the first level 3-4 times, killed everyone I could in the level with grenades exploding in the air.

After that, while I wrapped up on 2-4, during all of the points where I had to fight on the ground I used this method and it popped about halfway through my farming. I'm absolutely sure it took more than 20, but 50 may have been an exaggeration.

Also, a few of the grenades exploded about chest-level with the enemies, so that may have been an issue. I don't know if they were supposed to explode over their heads, but that could very well have been the problem.

I can confirm that the OP is right, I never threw grenades at enemies in the air, I only ever killed grounded enemies with grenades.

I did have a friend with a station 3 and he told me the proper way how this achievement was done, to throw grenades so they just explode above the heads of ground based enemies.

Thanks, this way worked perfectly for me, after spending the majority of the game wasting time with the other method.

Just unlocked for me using this method however I had to rinse and repeat at least 4 times at crash site when you first locate grenades!
so a heads up to people it may not unlock straight away if you count to 10.

Yes, this IS the way. I tested it, and it unlocked in exactly 10 kills in Crash Site (where you first pick up the grenades).

Killed 2 with a grenade, the other 2 with guns, died (off the cliff), reloaded, killed 4 with grenades, died, reloaded, killed 4 with grenades, and it unlocked.

Btw it also makes more sense, 'cause the achievement is named "Fireworks"....

This method worked for me. Cooked the grenades so they went off just above some watcher's heads in the first level where you get grenades. I think I was lucky and I got it after I killed 10 that way, on my first try.

Just thought I would verify this also. I just happened to be where you first get grenades when I read this. I tried this method and the achievement popped at 10. Thank you for saving me hours of work trying to get this achievement!

I'm not having any luck with this method. I'm at the scene where you first get grenades on Crashsite and I've made sure that the grenade is cooked and detonates in midair and even directly above the enemy's heads. Not including the ones that were beneath head-level, I have killed about 63 enemies so far and I've had no luck in getting this. Does anybody else have a trigger of some sort? Something they did immediately after they tried this that caused it to pop?

I've been trying for a while with this method and have got at least 50 kills but no achievement. I have also tried throughout the game killing airborn enemies. Maybe both methods work but are still glitched for some people.

What Martits said, I still haven't gotten the achievement, and I've killed a good 30 or 40 by now at the Crash Site. I've gotten most of those kills from behind cover... maybe if I'm not in cover, and try it that way, it'll pop.

Edit: About 16 so far from out in the open, still nothing... I'll keep trying, I guess. v.v

Edit 2: Yeah, nothing at all. Just got around another 30 kills, and still no achievement. Any ideas?

Edit 3: After about 25 minutes of trying this, I FINALLY got it. Killed 3 of the 4 with a mid-air explosion, and it popped. No idea how many of them I'd killed, but it was at least 100.

Thanks

I posted this in the other Fireworks thread, thought it may help someone here too.

Vertical Cover!

Nothing easier than just dropping a grenade on an enemy below you. I finished the original game long ago and had tried many methods being unlocking it in this manner.

If you can unlock it by just throwing a grenade above an enemies' head on the ground, "great, well done" continue on. If you cannot unlock it that way, try dropping grenades while in vertical cover.

This method worked for me.
I just played through the game as I looked for missed journals and used grenades when they bunched up, sometimes on lone enemies too. I didn't keep working the same enemies or reload any checkpoints. It seemed like it took more than 10 but not an absurd amount more. I never really kept count; just took the opportunities when they came and cooked the grenades before letting them go above their heads.

This method worked for me as well. Loaded up episode 1 ch 2 got to the part were you had to destroy the wall. I guess I had had some kills already because i just needed to do this twice an cheevo unlocked. Thanks to poster and all feedbackers for there help

edit

I also wanted to add that killing the flying guys for me did not help in getting this cheevo Im certain i had over 40-60 kills on them and they were all in they air when I killed them

Right people just to explain this achievement a little bit better as no one seems to have figure it out.

If you do a firework kill correctly you get a special death animation where the enemy's head pops off and explodes like a firework with their headless body falling to the ground. You need to see this death animation 10 times for the achievement to pop. It only works on the basis type watchers units and their colour variates and no others.

You need to make sure that the grenade blows up mid air near their head to make this happen, if the grenade is too close however it will just kill the enemy out right, I got it down to being able to do it with 1/3 enemies, timing is a bit of a pain for this.

In short you need to hold the grenade and throw it just before it blows so it will blow in mid air. Once I figured this out the achievement was easy to get but it does take some practice and a few extra kills.

Remember if their head doesn't shoot off like a firework, that enemy will not count towards the achievement.

[Edit] Would be great if someone could make a video of the needed death animation sadly I can't capture video to show you.

If only I had read this before trying for the achievement. HAve been trying unsuccessfully for ages. The worst is misjudging the cooking times and blowing my arm off!!

I was struggling with this one, having repeated the kills when you first get the dynamite. I must have killed at least 20...

I restarted a campaign, and played through until I got to the same section where you first get the grenades. I then started killing everything with airbourne grenades and got this after 5 further kills. None of my grenade kills were on airbourne enemy.
