Kill 25 Bloodmounts with a Scorcher while playing Horde on a Dark Corners Map Pack map

Bloodmounts are only found at the end of the last wave of each sequence in Horde mode. Each sequence consists of 10 waves, so waves ending in 0 are what you'll need. Throw it on Casual to make it easier on yourself. You can kill a few then let the other Locust kill you and retry the wave, your stats will be saved. A Scorcher can be found on the following Dark Corners maps:

  • Allfathers Garden
  • Way Station
  • Memorial
  • Highway

The Scorcher on Allfathers Garden is always present, but the other three maps it rotates with another weapon every round. If you don't want to be dying twice to get back to the "on" round for the Scorcher, just use AG for this achievement.

Best way to do this is shoot the chap on top of the bloodmount first as he will die first if you use the scorcher. This method makes your scorcher fuel go much further in one round!

To get this just start yourself on wave 10 on a map with a scorcher, and repeat.

Best map is Allfathers Garden, because you always get the Scorcher.

The guide is incorrect. There are actually 7 maps for this. Allfathers Garden, Way Station, War Machine, Highway, Sanctuary, Nowhere, and Memorial. The best map for this is Nowhere because the saloon under the mortar/mulcher is open. You can place a shield at the front door and sit behind the bar. Shoot the Beast Rider off his back first, otherwise when you kill the Bloodmount he will knock over the shield. Once the Rider is dead, shoot the Bloodmount in the head until he starts scratching his head and knocks off his helmet. Switch to the Scorcher and flame the Bloodmount. All other maps you have to be on the run most of the time because there is no where to post up because Bloodmounts can jump over anything but shields. However, you must hold the scorcher from a Flame Grenedier or Flame B

I found that the easiest way to get this achievement is to play on the Allfather's Garden map. Set it up for round 10 on the casual difficulty. The scorcher spawns in the middle of the map every round, so it will always be there. Simply put a half clip or so of Lancer into the Mount, and then scorch them until they die, which should only use up around 20-30 fuel. Once all of the mounts are dead either back out and start a new game or get yourself killed by whatever is left in the round. Repeat this until you get the 25 needed kills.

easy cheev. shotgun the dweeb on top then blow away the reaver. Should be killing 2-4 reavers per round
after you get the flamethrower on AG go to the right and you will see two cemet pillars. Simply hide behind one of them. As your flank is covered.
if you think your going to die run away and see if there is a reaver running around like a dumbass... there usually is

I'm not sure, but I hope not. It's one of the few that I put off until later because I thought there wasn't a rush!

Im trying to get this achievement too but online are only tickers. If you want
bloodmounts, disconnect your ethernet cable or your wifi connection and launch
the game. it will be normal, You need to be Signed off first to get this working.

I did memorial wave 10. If flamer isnt at the middle back at the bottom just shoot boomshot at feet. I shot the bloodmount a bit and then burnt. Takes 20 to 30 mins at the most. Its nice because you burn them in tight hallways in the underground part.

I'd recommend not focusing on this while trying to get the horde achievements (get to level x and beat wave x). I found just going wave 10 on Allfathers was pretty effective. I usually aim at the mount's head until it stops and knocks its helmet off, then start burning (although sometimes they won't take off the helmet). Alternatively, one well aimed gorgon burst followed by fire seemed pretty effective.
