Resident Evil 6

Resident Evil 6 Achievements

B.O.W.s Are Ugly

Defeat 100 enemies that have come out of a chrysalid.  

Throughout campaign mode, you’ll find enemies that are in human shaped cocoons. Some will start as cocoons, and some will enter the cocoon state after being killed. After a few moments, a fully mutated creature will erupt from the cocoon. The majority of these will be found in the Chris' campaign. The cocoons can be destroyed before they hatch, but this doesn't count towards the achievement. Check your progress by going to your Records or Dog Tag Titles

There are at least four types of enemies that hatch from chrysalid. 
  • Strelats - This variant is very lizard like. It's fast and likes to keep it's distance. It's main attack is a spray of needles.
  • Napad - Large, heavy, and heavily armored. They can be weakened by destroying their armor and following up with melee attacks.
  • Mesets - A flying enemy that can swoop in for a grab or land for a claw attack. You'll see these almost exclusively in Chapter 2 of Jake's campaign.
  • Gnezdo - A human shaped swarm of insects. The Queen controls the swarm, and hides inside until it takes enough damage. Once drawn out, kill the Queen and the rest dies with it.
  • Other B.O.W.s - There are some enemies you won't see come out of a cocoon, but will still count towards the achievement such as Rasklapanje, Lepotitsa, and even the Ogroman. You can be fairly certain that anything bigger than a mutated J'avo is counted.

This is most likely the only "Defeat this many enemies" achievement that you won't unlock just playing through the game. A good place to farm B.O.W. kills is in Chapter 5 of Chris' campaign. Fairly early in the level you'll reach a circular room where a timer starts and cocoons will come out two at a time for each lever pulled. You can pull the lever yourself or wait for a J'avo to do it. Wait for them to hatch and kill them. Restart the level and repeat until you unlock the achievement. You can get up to ten kills per run this way.

A little bit into Chapter 5 of the Chris campaign, you'll be in a room where you need to survive for a few minutes. There are multiple levers around the room-- either let the J'avo pull them or pull them yourself, and 2 chrysalids will pop out on a conveyor belt. The two types of enemies that will emerge are either the Napad or the Gnezdo. Kill everything in the room, collect all of the skill points, then keep reloading the checkpoint and repeating the process until you get the achievement. :)

Chapter 2 of Chris's campaign is also a good place to boost your count. During the latter part of the chapter you will encounter roughly 15 enemies that emerge from chrysalids.

Yeah, it's just anything that comes out of a chrysalid. I think it shows chrysalids on the records because tu can oil them before they hatch sometimes.

Good way to work on this and the Mad Skillz achievement at the same time:
1. Purchase the infinite ammo for grenade launcher.
2. Load up the City Hall (Level 2-4) on Chris' campaign.
3. Play as Chris and kill all of the Napads and Strelats until the end of the level. There are 10 Napads (1.5k skill points each) and 6 Strelats (1k skill points each). Each run takes about 9 minutes and you should walk away with 21k skill points each time (not to mention taking out 16 chrysalid beasts each time).

Got this on Chris' City Hall chapter. Didn't use Infinite ammo. Napad's are easy. Destroy back armor and either shoot or punch (with prompt) them to death. Strelats are even easier. Just sprint towards them, slide kick them, then execute the grab prompt for an easy kill.
