Notice that it isn't the comboweapon rocket launcher, but the one you get from Reed, after you defeat Roger and Reed in the Psychopath(sidemission) Deadliest Trick in the Atlantic Casino. Must be the last side-psycho you will defeat (if you count the hillbillies with snipers out, they don't have a phone call from Stacey)

does it count if you melee hit a zombie with a propane/acetylene tank instead of shooting the tank to make it explode?

Was Having troubles with this, seems to be slightly glitched. Easiest thing to do to ensure that the game notices the kill is do it twice with every weapon. With propane/acetylene tank Melee at least one then blow them up with it.

Note: for the Rocket/Fountain firework manually throwing them won't always work, walk up to a zombie with it equiped and press "X".

Easy achievement, just don't do what I did which was to use the fountain firework instead of the rocket and then wonder why the achievement didn't pop!
