This one was pretty easy.
"Nyah! See?" just requires you to take out a handfull of strip casino gangsters with a machine gun. The Omertas at Gomorrah went down quickly and filled the required body count.
"Vault 13's Revenge" requires you to kill off Super Mutants. Grab the Gun Runners 5.56mm and head to Jacobstown, where you should be able to take out the peaceful bastards easily. Nightkin count too. If you're looking for more of a fight, head to Black Mountain, although you may need a bigger gun.
Finally, go out hunting for Fiends and the like. Vault 3 is filled with them if you haven't finished them off yet.

I found the easiest way to get this was going to Caesar, crippling his head with a throwing spear (requires some distance, I had to get him out of the tent), then finish him off with a combat knife.
Prior to this I killed all the other legions with a high melee and the 'Oh Baby!' hammer.
Then I grabbed a 10mm submachine gun and killed 10 white gloves - achievement unlocked.

I found an easy way was to combine 2 quests and enter The Tops without surrending your weapons, kill the Chairmen that attack you with a submachine gun (but use V.A.T.S., so that you don't accidentally kill Benny in the initial melee, as he will likely descend the stairs and join in). Switch to Maria to kill Benny, then switch back and kill any others you may need to reach the count.

Then go to Jacobstown and start shooting with a Plasma Defender. If you haven't done any of the related quests, then Lily will be there, and you can actually just kill her repeatedly (she will always get back up) away from the others as she tries to leave town.

It only took me 10 minutes, tops, and I'm pretty horrible.

Killing Benny with his own gun (Maria) was kind of a long term thing for me. I talked him into taking me to his room (Black widow perk) and then shot the gun from his hand. Picked it up, but it was completely broken, so I could not use it to kill him. I left his room, left the casino and took a detour to the Mojave outpost in the far south of the map (with the NRC guy that can repair up to 100%), repaired the gun, transported back to the strip. Benny was in de hallway on the 13th floor waiting in anticipation. So I shot him in the head with Maria. Thankfully the chairmen at the door downstairs let me keep Maria, although I don't believe it's a stealth weapon. Anyway, challenge done!

yea...i don't think you can pick-pocket Benny...tried 5 times today...should be a 3 star challenge if it really is so complicated as comment 9
