Borderlands Achievements

Master Exploder

Kill 25 enemies with explosive weapons  

Weapons and grenade mods in this game have different elemental types. You can tell what they are to the right of the stats on the gun. These can be bought in the store or looted from enemies and chests. Killing the enemies with the specific type of elemental weapon will count towards this achievement. You can check your progress on each elemental type in the challenges menu.

The rocket on your vehicle counts as an explosive weapon and will count towards this achievement. Adding elemental artifacts to your action skill will also count toward these achievements. -Thanks to KFZ Scrubs

Description says it all. Kill enemies with explosive weapons. It also helps to make your players special use that kind of attack.

Master Exploder is the title of a Tenacious D song. Awesome.

Also good to know that the barrels that explode count as the respective element if it kills an enemy - shoot a yellow barrel, for example, and it'll count as an explosive kill if it kills an enemy. Yellow is explosive, red is incendiary, green is corrosive, and blue is shock.

I'm having some trouble with this one. Checking through the challenge log, it says I have 200+ explosive kills, and the 25 kill challenge is checked, yet I still don't have this achievement. Same issue with 12 days of pandora.
