In the mission 'Payback', you'll come to the mouth of a cave and there will be a guy shooting flames at you. Woods tells you to pick it up, but you don't have to. However, if you want this achievement, be sure to get it and then use it on 10 people. I'd also suggest to do this on Recruit because it's hard to get close enough to enough enemies with the flamethrower.

@Pickle: You need to get it before you go after Krachenko as the level ends right after that cut scene.

Just to confirm this is AFTER the bit where you pilot the Hind.

This also has to be done in one life, as opposed to the Unconventional Warfare achievement.

If you die before you get 10 do you have to start the whole payback mission all over again or can you begin at the assualt with reznov?

I'm gonna have to re-do this mission on recruit later. It's simply too hard to ambush people on veteran like that

Was too hard even on normal for me, but easy on recruit as was the other achievement related to this mission.

I'm more of a MP person, so I end up rushing too much in campaign and dying over and over.

Gotta agree with last 3 posters, this achievement just won't pop even when I've gone back to try on recruit and killed everyone I could find with the flamethrower. Frustrating.

I had the same problem, got 10+ killls with the flame thrower and the achievement wouldnt come up.
Apparently my mistake was burning them just enough so that they'll die. What I did differently was that I really sticked it to them. Put them on fire until they were completely down and dead (you have enough ammo anyways so might as well). And the achievement poped up. Hoped this helped.

@#24 thats funny.

Could not do it on veteran. Did it on recruit. you need to flame ten people without dieing and you'll get it on the tenth kill.

Do it on recruit!! After Hind action, go into cave entrance. Kill guy w/flamethrower and pick it up. Do not worry about killing 10 guys in the fisrt cave. Free the POW's and follow them into the next room. From here, on recruit difficulty, run in towards the back and light up everyone!! You might die, who cares, doesn't matter. You just have to kill 10 without dying!! Fry'em up and it should pop!!

This is pretty hard even on regular but i don't really want to play the whole thing again even on recruit

Comment #28 by bronson23
Sunday, April 03, 2011 @ 03:17:24 AM

I had to do this one a couple times. The good thing though is if you die you start from right in front of the cave. So if you go in and only get 9 people or less in that last cave before Krevchanko then you start right in front of that cave again.

I have gone in killed everyone with the damn flamer but Achie not unlocking. I checked to make sure I didnt get it and still nothing. Does it pop up just as you finish the last guy off or does it happen after the level?

I don't know why but I tried for 3 hours to get it on Veteran. Frickin' impossible.
I gave up lol. Has anyone got it on Veteran? Props if you have.

I tried it on veteran earlier and I shat my pants, it's like impossible. It's better if you try it on recruit. You got more HP @_@

Ya...I attempted this one on my Veteran playthrough...was NOT happening. Going back on recruit and knocking this out as well as all the intel :)

wow i even tried it on recruit still kinda tough

Comment #34 by ShortXxXFuse
Friday, June 24, 2011 @ 08:55:08 PM

Geez...had to do this multiple times even on recruit. Even if you think you've gotten them all, keep trying. I actually ran out of flame one round, because I was trying to kill them "too thoroughly" I guess. Got it after a few times. Thanks for all your help!

I had to go through Payback twice on recruit, but you really need to make a run
for it in order for the AI to not take all of your kills. You should get the
achievement right away too.

Comment #36 by MyGamertag4EVER
Wednesday, July 20, 2011 @ 12:49:30 PM

you have to do it after you get out of the gunship

Tuesday, August 23, 2011 @ 01:49:11 AM

easy achievement just do it on recruit and just keep running around cause the ai's will steal your kills, also oce they are unfire they will die so dont waste your time and flame

Comment #38 by Lash 72
Sunday, September 04, 2011 @ 10:12:20 PM

The trick to this achievement is to be thorough in lighting them up but not
wasteful. Also, this is best attempted on Recruit. I got it on my 2nd try.

Couldn't get this one on normal, cause my guys kept killing my burn victims.

Comment #43 by Jeerrraayyyyyyy
Thursday, February 09, 2012 @ 04:39:04 PM

Got it on my first try. Did it on recruit. I burned them until they dropped their weapon which means a kill I guess. Pretty easy.

Comment #44 by DC Ronan
Monday, December 10, 2012 @ 05:24:46 AM

is it an actual flamethrower or a AK with a Flame attachment?>

Easy on recruit.

Comment #46 by xl4everlostlx
Monday, April 15, 2013 @ 03:53:40 PM

This is fucking bullshit. I charge to the back setting everyone I see on fire. But they end up getting shot by my fucking team before I make it to 10.

Comment #47 by nselvo
Sunday, May 26, 2013 @ 12:39:35 AM

If you're having trouble, toss a flashbang then let loose with the flamethrower. I managed to get the achievement on hardened using this strategy so it should definitely make things easier for anyone that's still having trouble on lower difficulties.

Comment #48 by TheAssassinof13
Sunday, June 01, 2014 @ 06:28:27 PM

So I found out that you can't get this achievement on S.O.G; had to learn that the hard way though.
