Dead Space didn't do a very good job explaining the different types of necromorphs...what do "Lurkers" look like?

Really? There's a picture of it on the Achievement Guide...

Nevertheless, Lurkers are the babies with three tentacles coming out of their back. They tend to throw barbs at you, and I don't think they grab you in Zero-G enviroments. Could be wrong though. Easy achievement, just don't know why they made it a Secret Achievement.

Fairly easy, I even managed to get this as far as chapter 5...

I don't believe that they will lunge you in zero-g as I have stood there letting them attack me forever and never got them to latch on. I ended up getting it on the final level when in the first room that has them. I would have gotten it sooner but I didn't start trying for it till after level 3.

Wow, didn't even know these little guys grabbed you. I've made two runs through the game, once on hard and again on impossible and I can't remember a single time having these guys on me.

Cheevos busted for me. Second playthru I let 25 of these bastards jump on me and hasn't popped. Oh well, yet another achievement glitched.

For those that are curious, I've tested loading a save file after being grabbed by some lurkers to see if that would increase the counter, but to no avail. No achievement after 15 cumulative grabs.

So anyone having problems getting this achievement, make sure you're getting grabbed and not dying afterwards as it will take away those counts if it was after a save/checkpoint.

I let them grab me every time and got it around chapter 4. Took me 3 playthrus to figure out what a lurker was, those little babies with the three shooters that pop out the back.

Just decided to get this one on my second play through as I didn't let the lurkers anywhere near me the first time. Walked up to each one, let it attack, booted it to pieces, had the cheevo by level 3.

If you haven't gotten this by chapter 11, there's a spot to get 5 or so. Follow the objective till you get to the part where you have to load the cargo. Deactivate gravity and jump down and a bunch will jump out. Jump back up and turn gravity on and they'll be able to grab you.
