Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Achievements

Elementalist

20
Had an enemy frozen, corroded, ignited, and electrocuted at the same time.  

There are multiple ways to unlock this achievement, but the end result is the same. You need to have all 4 status effects on a single enemy at one time.

You can try to do it the most simplistic way and have 1 of each weapon type equipped and try to ignite/freeze/corrode/electrocute them but you likely won't have enough time especially if you can't get one of the status effects to happen. It is theoretically possible to do it this way, but it's probably the most difficult.

Another way you can do this is to use Athena. In her Ceraunic Storm skill tree there is a skill that you can unlock called 'Smite'. Basically when you're airborne and shoot at an enemy a bolt of fire and lightning shoots down from the sky and this has a chance to ignite/electrocute the enemy. With this you can then equip a freeze weapon and jump then shoot an enemy trying to freeze them and hoping that Smite ignites/electrocutes them and then quickly switch to a corrosive weapon to try and corrode them while they're frozen/ignited/electrocuted.

You can also do it with a team. Have one person use a gun of each element and blast away on a tough enemy. I personally did this with a team using the stalker who eats the guy's key card in the "Science and Violence" story mission in R&D.

You can use Fragtrap's "Rainbow Coolant" skill (bottom of the far right tree). This will ignite, corrode, freeze, and shock an enemy with one button press.

You can also use barrels that do the various elemental effects as well as grenades, slam attacks and shield Nova explosions.

Huge thanks to 'Predni' for the video:

In theory, you have 4 options to get this achievement

- All Classes with 4 Elemental Weapons - Video below
- Claptraps rainbow nova skill (required a Level 25 Claptrap)
- Athenas Prismatic Aegis Skill (required a Level 14 Athena + a Friend + 4 Elemental Weapons)
- Grenade Mod called "Four Seasons" (random elements if you throw them - very Lucky)

I recommend trying to get it on an Orpha towards the end of the game due to her high shield capacity and the fact she can be frozen

Sniper rifles have good chance to cause elemental damage, especially frozen. Equipped one of every element at same time and used on Orpha toward end

-----------------
Once you get down to Claptraps Skilltree "Fragmanted Fragtrap", you can unlock the skill "Rainbow Coolant". It does damage with every element once your stack is empty. You will need a strong enemy for this and is best done on ELESEER. You will find the "Elder Opha" in the center of the map. Drain your stacks by stomping and stand close to her to get the achievement.

Using Claptraps Rainbow Coolant skill stand next to a Oxygen (Oz) tank switch and let the Nova blast hit it. Achievement pops up and it classes the tank as an enemy.

I came here to say the same thing as #1. The Four Seasons grenade mod is great. Just go up to a boss or someone with a decent amount of health and throw down as many grenades you can to ensure you get atleast one of each element.

the Four Seasons grenade mod definitely gets it done fast. I just duped 3 orange grenade mods then ran them through the grinder until i got the four seasons mod then hit the or Orpha near the end with them and got it 1st try.

Just got this achievement a different way to all the suggestions. I used a cryo sniper rifle called Night Terror, but it doesn’t matter what cryo weapon you use, it’s irrelevant, but for the other 3 elements I used the MINAC’s Atonement which shoots fire, corrosion and shock elements randomly, it doesn’t say what the chances are but the first enemy I tried getting the achievement with I got it done straight away. If it helps, I used it on ‘Shame’, and enemy from the ‘Chip’s Data Mining Adventure’ mission in Cluster 00773 P4NDOR4. If you don’t know how to get MINAC’s Atonement, you gotta go help MINAC in Cluster 00773 P4NDOR4 in the Claptastic Voyage DLC. Hope this helps someone get the achievement quicker.
