"Kill 25 enemies with shock weapons"


This achievement is gained by killing 25 enemies with shock damage.

Weapons that do both bullet damage and shock damage may actually kill with the bullet portion of their total damage output, so players might want to consider applying a shoot-and-wait strategy to ensure that the shock damage is delivering the killing blow. Shock damage weapons can be identified by the "Lightning" icon under the weapon's picture.

A character’s action skill, with an element on it, will also enhance a weapon's shock damage.

Electric (blue) barrel explosions that kill nearby enemies will also count toward the achievement.


  • The Xbox360 achievement gives 25 gamerscore.
  • The PlayStation 3 trophy gives a "Bronze" trophy.


  • 1.21 Gigawatts is a reference to the 1985 hit film Back to the Future in which the DeLorean time machine needed 1.21 Gigawatts in order to travel through time.
