Aliens: Colonial Marines

Aliens: Colonial Marines Achievements

Eat This!

Kill a Xenomorph with a shotgun at very close range  

During your first encounter with a group of aliens on mission 1, they will try to melee you (or Keyes). You can either shoot it with your shotgun just before it swings with  or first press your right stick to melee it and when it is stunned, shoot it. You can even time the melee where you will go into an animation sequence that kills it with the shotgun automatically. All methods work well for this achievement.

Use a shotgun at close rang, *thinks* hmmm who will be carrying a shotgun seeing as if you kill a Xenomorph at close range you will be hit with acid and die

@4 - Not necessarily. The acid doesn't have to splash at you, it could go to the side. But if you were a boss, you'd dodge it.

@5 thumbs up. A true boss would dodge the acid!
