Aliens: Colonial Marines

Aliens: Colonial Marines Achievements

It's a Dry Heat

Kill 3 enemies with a single U4 Firebomb   

Once the firebomb is available (Rank 4), select the grenade by holding  and pressing left on your left analog stick to highlight it when you release . The firebomb grenade launcher doesn't work for this achievement and sometimes the soldiers count, but not every time like they should. I think "enemies" should've said "aliens" or "Xenos" to make this easier. In any case, there's multiple locations in the campaign where throwing the firebomb will net you the achievement. Personally I used mission 1 (Distress) when O'Neil needs to be defended while cutting open a door. Restart checkpoint gives you multiple attempts to make sure at least 3 catch fire from one grenade toss.

This is with the Grenade. Did it numerous times with the launcher and got nothing, first try with a grenade and I got it.

It's with the hand-held grenade, just fire one ahead of you at one of the points you've to defend or where you're being swarmed and you'll get it. I got it in the first mission on my way back to O'Neal with the flight-rec. Just after Keyes tells them you're on your way, you'll be in a narrow corridor and you've to go left. The right arm of the corridor spawns Xeno's out of a hole, just throw a grenade between you and them, or at them and this will pop.

Got this easily on level 2, single player ultimate badass, close to end of level. Just after getting the flamethrower, Weyland soldiers will be running towards the escape pods, paying minimal attention to you. throw a grenade in the way and they will run right into the fire. easy. popped second try for me

I got this in mission 9, in the area inside the building where you set up the turret (right after you help the marines & return to Cruz).

Aliens were swarming O'Neal, so I tossed a bomb up there and happened to get it.

For some reason I wasn't able to aim these well most of the times I threw these.
