Red Faction: Armageddon

Red Faction: Armageddon Achievements
What Is Best In Life?15
Perform melee finishers on 25 Creepers (single player only).

Creepers are the bugs that crawl up to you and try to melee you all the time. To perform a melee finisher it is much easier to stand still and let the creepers attack you and then press to finish them. You could also wait from them to spawn out of a pod and melee them as soon as they come out. A melee finisher looks like you stomp on their heads instead of just punching them. To check your progress press > Extras > Player Stats > >Achievements and then find the achievement and it will have your current progress.

When u fall through the floor ( 2nd mission ) don't destroy the pods until u get this achievement b/c the creepers will keep responding while the pods r still on the wall - simple enough this early on in the game

I did these kills while I was in the L.E.O. exoskeleton. Very easy.
They can hardly damage you and they die with one hit, even on Insane difficulty.

Melee Finishers are the stomp move on the smaller creatures or in the LEO you reach down, grab and throw them

best way is just to get a pod that is on the ground (not on a wall etc)
stand 3-4 steps in front of the pod and as soon as they pop out you can stomp on them
they have to recover from their hit on the ground when they "hatch" so they cant move for a second

I don't get it, what stomp move? I've killed about 50 of these with melee and no cheevo. What does it mean by a 'finisher'?

Aaah ok you have to press in RS and the *maybe* it stomps 'em. 90% of the time the idiot just punches them or something. Took me forever to get 25 of the damn things.

Is this a Conan reference?

You have to be standing still to have a stomp melee attack and only these count. You cannot be walking/running.

#6 - I have the same issue, he just punch them instead of stomping on them, even if I'm not moving about.

I was having issues with this until i tried someones suggestion of shooting them once, however, you don't need to do this, having your pistols out (not your maul) works fine. stand where the crawlers land from a pod, and just press right stick to stomp them as they come out.

Alternatively (insane difficulty) just double melee them. (RS)

I got all 25 in a row. The easiest way is when you first encounter the pods. Don't destroy it and wait for the enemies to pop out. Adjust to where you stand about 2 steps away from the enemy when it pops out then move slightly forward, click AND HOLD the RS (for some reason holding it works better than just clicking it) you should stomp them.

These finishers can also be done on the ones that shoot red things at you (the second enemy type you encounter) I did it with a magnet gun in my hand and mason steps forward and heavily gun bunts them a fair distance.
