Dead Island

Dead Island Achievements

Extreme Firefighting

Set 5 enemies on fire and then kill them with explosives.  

This does not have to be five at one time, just five in total. You'll want to stock your character with a good amount of Molotovs and either Grenades or something like a Deo-Bomb. Throw down a meat bait, then a Molotov to set a group of enemies on fire, then quickly switch to the bomb and throw that as well to blow up the flaming group. You can also put the meat bait next to an exploding barrel and shoot it rather than trying to switch to a grenade. In fact, the flames from the Molotov will likely explode the barrel on its own. Depending on the type of enemy and their level, you'll need to be quick before they die from the flames. You do not actually have to have personally set them on fire for this to count, just be the one to blow them up. Some enemies spawn on fire; those will count for this as well.

I figured I would give this achievement a shot even though the DLC isn't
released yet. It's the only one that doesn't specify that it's a Survival
based achievement. Turns out it didn't work for me. First I caught 5 zombies
on fire with a molotov then blew them up with a propane tank. That didn't work.
So I caught 5 more zombies on fire with a molotov then blew them up with
a deo-bomb and that didn't work either.

Seems that you don't have to kill all five at once just total. Just make sure they are on fire when you blow them up. My counter is at 1/5 right now just a heads up.

This is very easy. Just get one molotov, attract a crowd of zombies, stand on a car/boat/whatever, throw it at them and as they burn, just throw a deo-bomb down. Got it in one attempt.

throwing 2 deo-bombs in a row will also net you 2-3 zombies at a time when there is a large group of them

Really can't work this one out. I have set whole groups (6-7) of zombies on fire and then blown them all up with grenades but I don't get any progress with this achievement.

Easy way to get this, use a meat bait in Arena A beside one of the red explosive canisters, after round 5 so there are plenty zombies to hit. When the zombies are occupied with the meat bait, throw a molotov at the canister/bait and voila, achievement.

In the Arena at about Round 10 you have the zombies in fire spawning and running at you. I just shot the explosive tanks when they ran past and got it easily

Playing through Dead Island again on my new account, I remember this achievement being a pain back then. This time I kept it in mind and looked out for opportunities during the main storyline.
Perfect opportunity in Chapter 4; when you are told to take the truck to a mechanic to get it reinforced. As I got out of the truck, several zombies were hammering on the door, oblivious to me. Leaning against the fence on the left was a Gas Canister, threw it into the middle of them all, lobbed a Molotov, which set off the Canister a few seconds later and tadaa!

I did this in Moresby.. got some zombies to follow me, and got on top of a truck.. threw a molotov on them, then dropped a grenade on them. Done and done.
