Come One, Come All

Kill four Taken with a single shot from the flaregun.  

The best opportunity for this comes later on in the game in all honesty. The penultimate chapter where you have to hold off the Taken whilst the lift comes down (at the docks). It's a typical and cliched scene and they come thick and fast. One well placed flare and you can take out a good 4 or 5 without breaking a sweat.

This can be earned right at the beginning of the game. After picking up the flare gun in the red box under the lamp post, continue down the path, and a group of three enemies will spawn in front of you. Run past them, and another will come out of the trees. Group them together, and use your flashlight to drain their darkness. Once they are exposed, use the flare gun to shoot the middle of the group, earning you this achievement.

Just got it at The Signal DLC. Right after the the TV to talk about the ghostly taken, four of them will come at you and you can just fire right at the center of them. BAM! You got it.

1st episode at the gas station. Run to the right up the road, pick up the thermos (because 2nd hand coffee is tasty) and take an axe to the face. Mash The trigger button and fry those bastards :)

Episode 5 - When you go to collect the chest behind the Fresh Seafood building (20/30), four taken will attack. Funnel them down the alley you just came from and flare gun them. Had to stun them with the flashlight some to get them to clump together, since one of them is a bit ahead of the others.

Ep 3 at the train yard is a good spot a large group of 6 to 9 of them come at you just take their darkness down the best you can and group them best u can and shoot the flare gun right into them this is also a good spot to get the flashbang grenade achievement

Large enemies sometimes take 2 or more blasts if they aren't quite close enough..bear in mind.
