Mimic Massacre Achievement

  • Mimic Massacre

     

    15

    You killed (5) Mimics in 5 seconds.

    Killing mimics is easy; finding 5 of them in a group and getting them to stand still for long enough can be tricky. A nice spot for this is in Psychotronics, on the second floor in Lab A. You'll see a window covered in GLOO, and a note nearby warning of the many mimics trapped within. What I did was break the GLOO with my wrench and tossed a Typhon Lure in. The mimics will all be distracted and will stand still, looking at it. Then toss a Recycler Charge among them. If you don't get 5 mimics, switch to your shotgun and mop up whoever is remaining to unlock the achievement. Be careful, there are bodies in there and if they get sucked into the Recycler Charge they will no longer count for "Missing Persons". I recommend saving before you try this, and reload after you get the achievement. Video credit goes to HarryNinetyFour.

  • In Lab A in the pyschotronics level you will find a Gloo'd up window with a warning note saying up to 8 mimics are inside. Stand on the left hand side, quick save, smash the Gloo and immediately toss in a Recycler grenade. Took me two goes but easiest place I've found so far.
