It shouldn't be as hard as it sounds since there is an ability that lets you shoot your own grenades.

Yeah, but at the same time they've said there are no 1-hit kills in the game and that grenades are weak, so this and all the other grenade/explosive kill achievements could be a pain since they're dependent upon wounding the enemy first by other means and then finishing them with an explosive.

I'm thinking from the name that it means you have to shoot a grenade that someone else threw that is in midair or near the person, thus killing them?

I imagine having the skill to shoot grenades will let you auto lock onto them.
Just got to soften the enemy up then throw a grenade then boom.

All i have to say i got it today and it is pretty hard as the grenades are not that heavy hitters as they said and when u though one they walk/run away even if they r on easy so this one while take some time

It's pretty easy to get actually. Just wait till they're repairing something, throw grenade, let it land, you got about 2 seconds to find and shoot it.

You could either boost this achievement in a Private Match or if you do it by accident like I did, throw a grenade at the ground and shoo(assuming you have the ability unlocked) and I got it. Perhaps you could try shooting a couple rounds at him first then do the above. Hope this helps. X)

@27 Every Call of Duty fanboy considers a first person shooter as a "rip off" of Call of Duty. Yeah. Brink has guns in it and you can actually put stuff ON your guns! *gasp* CoD should file a lawsuit.

easy way to get achievement is to be the assault class throw a molotov and while they are down throw the nade and shoot it.

@29 it's not assault, it's soldier. you can be assault with any class you please if you choose the right guns. just sayin'.

Anyways, I think as long as you have the grenade shooting ability in use you'll get it eventually. and if you're gonna put effort into it, don't make it harder than it is by trying to shoot it out of the air. Shoot it on the ground.

Also, @27: Yes, because COD has superhyped online MP campaign modes, freerunning, excessive character customization, abilities (no, they're not perks), a TF kind of gameplay, different classes, multiple buffs and such for you and teammates, no superpowered weapons, a highly prevalent tactical aspect, and gameplay that hinges on time.
