Half Life 2: The Orange Box

Half Life 2: The Orange Box Achievements


Kill five enemies with the same energy ball.  

This applies to those energy balls floating for generators. Very easy when working your way into the Citadel. Pull one in, shoot it to kill an enemy, then pull it back, rinse and repeat till 5 are down.

The easiest way to get this is in Half Life 2: Episode 1. After getting the "Watch your head" achievement, you go through a corridor that ends at a control room.

Since the game has to load this part of the level, it is easy to reload to this spot if you mess up.

A group of white combine soldiers will meet you in the room. There is a soldier on the right that will almost immediately shoot an energy ball at you. If you can grab it and kill everyone in the room, you will get this achievement very quickly.

I got this by accident. Not long after you get the "Fight the Power" achievement
you go onto the roof and have to fight a lone air ship. Destroy the air ship.
Then agate will open and a bunch of combine will come through. Terminate them.
Then you come to a bridge and a whole bunch of combine come rushing out.

Now what I did was let fly a energy ball grenade from the pulse rifle (?)
the come weapon you get with the awesome grenades. Aim right into the group and let your energy ball hammer them. I didn't realise it could be done this way, but it did
work. Try just using the energy ball grenade when there is a heap of combine.
This should be pretty easy to achieve. Hope that helps.

I got this at the same time as the atomizer achievement, on "Our Benefactors" right after you get the upgraded grav gun, you'll reach an area with 1 small energy ball field that operates the force field and then there's three large infinite energy ball fields. There's at least 20 enemies that spawn in this area so you'll have plenty of opportunity to try and grab the a ball and throw away.

I also got it the way #2 got it, but I used 2 shots to do it.

I got this in "Our Benefactors" when you're traveling up on the big elevator surrounded by the shield. At one point you come next to a floor with a large group of soldiers rushing toward you. I just grabbed an energy ball, shot it at the group and got the achievement. Finding a big group is easier than shooting the ball, grabbing it again, etc.

This achievement is glitched. I did it but it never unlocked.
