Spelunky Achievements

Public Enemy

Killed 12 or more shopkeepers in one game.  

To find enough shopkeepers, you will want to start from the Mines. The shopkeepers are in shops that randomly spawn and will only be in some stages. They can also be found in rooms within the terrain that contain chests. If something else kills them it will count towards the achievement. You will want to grab the Udjat Eye from the locked chest in the Mines to make finding the Black Market in the Jungle easy for you. You want to do this because in the Black Market you can find 8 shopkeepers.

Shopkeepers are very dangerous as they all carry shotguns and can get angry easily. If you steal something from a shop, drop a bomb in a shop, blow up terrain close to the shop, attack a shopkeeper, or even if something else injures one, they will come after you. You have to be quick and you'll want more than just your whip and bombs. If you're lucky, the first shop you come across will have a weapon you can steal and quickly kill the shopkeeper with. Once a shopkeeper is dead, you will probably want his shotgun and all the loot you can get from his shop.

After you've killed your first shopkeeper, the exits of each stage will be guarded by a shopkeeper and every shopkeeper will instantly become an enemy. Carry on until you reach a stage in the Jungle where you can access the Black Market. Here you can let a lot of the shopkeepers kill each other or die from traps, but remember there are 8 of these guys jumping around. You can use a rope and climb to the top of it to an area where they can't reach you to give them time to kill each other. When you think there are only a few left, carefully take them out with any weapons you have or can find here. Continue through the stages if you still need the achievement, killing them as you go. See below for a video guide.
