Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine Achievements

Shock & Awe

Kill 150 enemies using the Charge attack.   

Charge Attacks are when you sprint by clicking the Left Thumbstick, then pressing to perform a melee attack as you sprint. Charging orks like this twice will kill them, but a couple melee attacks or shot from a pistol or bolter before the charge should help make the charge attack a one hit kill.

An easier way is to charge through Gretchin (the little green orks) or through Chaos Guardsmen. Both have extremely low health and will die with a single charge.

To speed up the process, go to Chapter 13 and find the room where the Chaos Guardsmen are manning a Heavy Bolter. Kill them and proceed through the room. When you attempt to leave a Daemonhost will appear and begin summoning more Chaos Guardsmen. Here's your chance to grind this one out. Do NOT kill the Daemonhost, and just begin charging through enemies. There will be a never ending tide of them, so long as the Daemonhost doesn't die.

Is the Charge attack a charged up plasma shot or the dash you do when sprinting and you press X or Y? I'm thinking it's the plasma shot.

Run at them and then hit x. The dialog box that tells you how to do that in the first or second mission calls it a charge attack!

Okay, I wasn't sure because I remembered that, but it also calls the attack where you charge up a plasma gun/pistol a charge attack. I've done the one you said a ton but I guess not enough.

easiest way is to use this on the gretchins and on the first weak orcs in the game its when you sprint and then tap x its simple

I got it on Part 1 Chapter 2 "The Trenches". Once you get to the sealed door the Guardsmen are defending, a few waves of orks and gretchin will come. It takes one charge to kill a gretchin (of course) and two to kill an ork boy. The fastest way I found to get kills is the second you start sprinting press X. I'm not sure about the total number of orks, but after one playthrough I did this once and got the achievement. I'm not sure how far back restarting the checkpoint would take you.

I got it easily by activating Fury then Charging. It seems to make it a1 hit
kill on regular orks and it really expands the area of effect

So we have to run at 150 anemies going, "Ogga Booga booga!!!," and hope they die so we can get this achievement. Lame ....

The best level to achieve this and most of the other kill achievements is on 3-Belly of the Beast. Right after you unlock "Marksman Mode" you go into a large room, here you'll fight a ton of enemies. Kill a bunch then die and repeat. Do your melee kills, long range kills, charge kills, etc..
