Light my fire

Set 10 zombies on fire simultaneously.

Using a Molotov is likely your best bet here. Throwing a meat bait out will easily group them and keep them off you if you have that as well. During Act 2 you can exit the church and see an ambulance on a bridge to the right. Head across it and aggro those zombies and the few at the end of the bridge as well. Run back and stand on top of the ambulance to get a group of ten, then drop your Molotov on top of them.

There are multiple other places throughout the city to get this. Use a pistol from far off to aggro zombies and jump onto a car or truck (truck is best). You can run around the area quickly to find more then go back. Shoot anything in the distance so that they come to you.

Best bet would be using meat bait and use a molotov.

Inside the city, you will find ladders leading up to various high platforms. Your best bet is to throw a meat bait and then a molotov into them there.

This is easy, when you're in the city. Make sure that you have a gun, go outside the church, go towards where the your Big Truck is. Go right and head down a long road and there should be a pack of 5 zombies to begin with and then a pack of 4 zombies in the middle. Jump on a car, shoot the two zombies at the top with a gun to make them come over which might take a bit. once they're all there. BOOM!

This achievement is glitched for me, I counted 12 and had them in one place infront of the truck and threw a molotov 3 times with a huge pack of zombies and still nothing.

Glitched for me too... I burnt 11 at once and didn't get it.

Comment #17 by Aquafan
Tuesday, September 13, 2011 @ 10:43:05 PM

I don't think it's glitched. It took me a few times to get figure it out BUT...It says to SET 10 on fire simultaniously. Outside the abandoned house on the coast of the city (Ned's Place), on the beach there were 11 zombies hanging out (after I completed City Hall and the sewers, before there were just 9). I threw 2 or 3 molotovs and nothing. Then I tried throwing the meat bomb and lured a couple stragglers to teh meat bomb that was dropped and tossed the molotov...Achievement!

Wednesday, September 14, 2011 @ 02:42:43 AM

The initial explosion from the molotov has to hit all 10, so they have to be really close together. As the achievement says, "SET 10 zombies on fire SIMULTANEOUSLY", not "have 10 zombies on fire at the same time"

Comment #19 by ExW4r
Thursday, September 15, 2011 @ 02:12:57 PM

A really good place to do this is the beach at the south end of the town near just a bit west of the house with the questgivers. There is a huge pile up of the zzombies just chilling on the beach, one or two meat baits, one molotov when they're bunched up and that's all she wrote.

Need a partner to do some achievements with.
Achievements I need:
-One is all I need.
-Light my fire.
-10 Heads are better than 1.
-Oh no you don't.

Basically needing some one to create a Level 1 character so I am able
to kill the zombies in 1 blow etc.

In Return I will also do the same or help with any other achievements.

Add me: Alex l 4 l.

The perfect place to get this is in Act II. When you leave the abandoned house with Nick (the one you can fast travel too), make a right and head towards the beach that is right there. You will find several zombies already grouped together. I threw one meat bait and torched um. EZ

@20 "One is all I need" - once you get to Act 3. You get a great weapon. Upgrade it. Then there'll be a part where you will run into more than 5 easily in a row

I don't know about all of you but every time I make a meat bait it disappears from my's starting to piss me off...

Still...I'll try some of these other solutions

Comment #24 by aranbailey
Wednesday, September 21, 2011 @ 02:47:29 AM

@24 It might be because you have a full inventory, it drops the meat bait/deo
bomb on the floor in front of you if you dont have to space to carry it.

Buy some molotov cocktails and go to the City. Go to harbor and lead 10 zombies to the canal. Then make sure that they all are close enough each other and throw a molotov and boom. you got the cheevo. It's not that hard...

Comment #26 by omarroms
Tuesday, September 27, 2011 @ 04:27:53 AM

I did this in the city by gathering groups of zombies then jumping on a car. I then tried to count them to see if there are around 10. once i was sure i just threw the moltov in the middle of the group. When i did it i threw it at my feet, got burn and died but i got the achievement since 10 were burned at once.

Comment #27 by xBfmVxSteveNx
Wednesday, September 28, 2011 @ 02:13:35 PM

I got it easily by getting a meat bait, and 3 molotov's (just incase) go down to the beach at the resort, there should be like a little pool of water (in which the infected can't get over) so i went there and stood in the water, threw the bait at the ground infront of me of course, and watched the bastards burn!, excuse my language :)

Comment #29 by pyoobez
Thursday, September 29, 2011 @ 12:36:47 AM

I just got it fairly simply. Head to the city, get to an area where there's two groups of four to five zombies. Hop on a car and use the crappiest pistol you have to shoot any that don't walk over. Then zoom off into the distance and you should find one or two more. Try to stay clear of the canal area as the zombies down there can't usually get up to you. You may have to hop from car to car and shoot a few of the zombies again that don't follow so have 50 bullets.

best place 2 do this is in the city near the church, have bait meat and
molotov's to hand, just walk round get the zombies to follow u, get on
top of a car throw a couple of meats around, then let rip with molotov's it's not hard to do.

Comment #35 by Snake Charmer
Thursday, October 06, 2011 @ 04:54:50 PM

@32 You have about a 50% chance of getting meat from infected when you kill them. You can also buy it from some of the traders in game. I've seen it for sale at the lighthouse and the lifeguard tower but it's not always available.
It took me a while to get this but i found a better way than using meat bait was to have a pistol with a fair bit of ammo. Go onto one of the main streets in the city and stand on a car. I stood on an ambulance. Walkers cant climb it but you're in full view so they come to you usually and if you stand near an edge they actually walk around the car to get to the closest part of you. Use the pistol to shoot far away zombies. One hit usually gets their attention and they stagger over. If they go to walk away just shoot them again. When you have 10 at your feet molo

Go down to the harbor part in the city on the beach. Must be 10 plus of walkers jump on the upturned boat and lob a molotov. Works a treat. Plus its fun to watch

I wanna thank #35 for his tip; that's how I did it. There's an area not terribly far from the church that has a few cars in it and 12-15 zombies. I just stood on top of an ambulance and boom.

Easy way to get a double achievement (this and the "Catch!" achievement) is to give the guy in the warehouse 5 boxes of bleach so that he gives you an incendiary grenade and heading to the "quarantine zone" (it has two big army trucks and three red cross tents) you'll know you are there when you get swarmed by about 5-6 infected. The thing about this specific spot is that the will continuously spawn, 3-4 every 10-15 seconds. They add up quickly, but if you jump on the army truck nearest to the red cross tent they cannot get to you and will essentially run in a continuous circle, with the continuous spawning in action you can wait about 2-3 minutes and then chuck the incendiary grenade at the thickest bunch and if timed right you will get both achievements. I accidented upon this area an

I think mine may be glitched too... I counted 13 zombies and even when I roasted all of them, it still didnt pop.. guess its back to the drawing board..

Comment #44 by Naberios
Wednesday, December 14, 2011 @ 04:45:24 AM

@43 They all have to be hit by the initial fireball. It won't pop if you get 9 initially, and then 1 walks into the fire.

The beach area south west of the abandoned house (listed as "Square" on the fast travel map) in the city is definitely a good place to get it. I lured a couple of extra walkers from the street just to the north to be safe. It was a bit of a pain, I had to use some med kits because I got in close and used a couple of meat baits just for good measure then launched the molotov from about 10 ft. or so away. Thanks for all the advice folks.

Much easier method than video: Go to city of moresby and go to the bottom of the map and head left along the shoreline from that safehouse with a small group. You will come to a point where the water goes in a thin canal towards the city. There should be a group of zombies in this area. Run around them to group them in a circle and throw molotov when apporopiate. End of the video in the link below for location.
