Borderlands Achievements

Rootinest, Tootinest, Shootinest

Kill 5 Rakk in under 10 seconds  

Rakks are the bat-like creatures that fly in the air and swarm in groups of about 5. You should find swarms in different areas around the game or during the Rakk Hive fight when it shoots them out of its mouth. Simply shoot them as they swoop down and attack. On the quest "Get the Flock Outta Here" there is a hive near the windmills that you can get a lot to spawn.

Another method is to use the Siren class and use the phasewalk action-skill when they're within a close proximity. Because Rakks have fairly low health, they should die as you enter/exit phasewalk. -Thanks to KFZ Scrubs.

SMG's and assualt rifles are really easy to use to get this achievement

My girlfriend had tried to get this achievement while fighting the Rakk Hive, and for some reason, even when she killed five of them (on several occasions) within ten seconds, the achievement would not unlock for her. So it's possible that the achievement can only be done against normal Rakk's.

To do this, try against the rakk hive (found in trash coast(it re spawns). Or go to any rakk spawing area.

Personally I've found it easiest to do with shotguns, elementals, or launchers. Just shoot one head on with a launcher or an elemental weapon and the ones around it will die too.

in the area where you first encounter rakk's (i dont emember exactly where)
there are over eight of these flying around just shoot to get them to fly down
then spray and you should get it (thats what i did)

When I encountered the rakk I was in a vehicle (grenade launcher), and the auto aim made it easier

easily done with any gun that shoots fire or electricity, they seem to always attack in groups of 3 or more.

yes, this is incredibly easy. the easiest way is probably to just use a decent shotgun or if you are a soldier drop your turret

I got this as Lilith and used her action skill when a group of them flew at me and the achievement popped.

What I found to be the easiest method of doing this is to find a Rakkhive and alarm the Rakks. Then use a shotgun (preferably one that's fully-automatic) and shoot at them as they're flying towards you to attack.
