Far Cry 3 Achievements

Heartless Pyro

Kill 50 enemies with the flamethrower (Single Player only).  

The Flamethrower can be found under the Specials menu when at a shop for a cost of $2400 or you can wait for it to become free by unlocking more Radio Towers. If you have the money, buy it and if you have any spare I'd purchase the upgrade for it as well. Now all you need to do is kill 50 enemies with it. The weapon itself is pretty good but you need to get in nice and close for it to really work. Though once you do set someone alight with it, it'll kill them in no time. One burst should do the job.

This is best used on Outposts. Let the alarm ring out, and you'll have a new group of enemies to kill. Take note that this only works on enemy NPCs. Killing animals does not add to the counter but you can provoke your Rakyat friends to attack you and doing so will then make them count as kills. To see how many kills you've earned, head into your Handbook and press to see your Statistics. Scroll down to Kills and you'll find it there.

Do 'Predator' animals count as kills? Or is it just Humans?

if you finish the game before getting this, and have liberated all outposts etc... then enemies are scarce on the map. A good place where they keep respawning is at the camp where vaas was making his video with liza. sorry cant remember co-ordinates...

On the drug burning mission they will spawn indefinitely from a building in the village below the crop fields...just wait and one will come out til you finish.

I had left this until last, after end game and all outposts done. Theres always a chance to get it tbh. Just do wanted dead sidequests, go to the compound as sometimes enemies will spawn. You may have to fast travel there repeatedly for them to spawn.

Also, civilians don't count but allies to. Just shoot 1 of them once and they'll attack you so that works too.

near end of missions it asked to shut down communication in a bunker so close combat perfect for getting these kills

For anyone doing this after you've cleared everything, just travel to outposts, shoot at a Rakyat once and they all start turning on you. Kill them all, fast travel to the next, shouldn't take too long.

It would be a smart idea to complete this before ending the game and/or liberating all outposts.

i completely finished the game before i even tried this achievement. So going to all of my completed outpost wouldn't work.... so go to "The Compound". The Rakyat guys respawn as you run around the area, BUT the body armored guys don't respawn. the COORDINATES are "X 363, Y 377"

Flamethrower is surprisingly my least favorite weapon in the game. Amazing game, only annoying achievement for me

Agreed. Hating the flamethrower. Grinding this now in enemy territory. Once I've got the achievement, the flamethrower's going away for the rest of the game.
