I had the same happen to me, long as yor weapon, you should get it. It was ok until I had those fast moving ones swarm you.

Thanks for quick answer
I started all over again the chapter
Now I didnt use any weapon at all (only zero ravity gun) and still didnt get it
Maybe I am forbidden to throw objects on zombies as well?

No, U HAVE to fight, Sawblades are best, as you can re-use them, save the big exposive barrels for groups or those cluster zombies., keep trying, took me 3 time till I got the damn thing.

I'm confused, what achievment is this?

If you want to be extra cautious, just unbind all your weapon keys except the one for the gravity gun (you will need that one to switch back to it after you get the shotgun). That way there's no chance of "accidentally" using a weapon you're not supposed to.

One minor correction for Spades: you only need to be in Online Mode, not actually logged into Friends, for achievements to unlock. I completed mine just a few weeks ago this way.

Yeah, I can believe that's the official word. Just saying, I've never had to sign in to Friends or activate the in-game overlay to get any achievements, so long as I'm not in Offline mode. Maybe it's a bit glitchy and I've just been lucky, but I literally just completed my HL2/Ep1/Ep2 achievment runs a few weeks ago without being signed in and it worked fine.

Actually, it always kind of annoyed me that Valve's own titles are some of the only ones that even require you to be online at all. Many others will work even in Offline mode and any achievements you get will unlock next time you sign in.

Looking through my recently played list, at least four I know for a fact allow offline achievements. Spec Ops: The Line, Modern Warfare 2, Beat Hazard Ultra, and Miasmata. In fact I don't even have any play time registered at all for Spec Ops despite having nearly all them unlocked. And I definitley couldn't get all 50 for MW2 in 18 hours, lol.

That's also why a lot of them have identical time stamps... because anything you've earned in offline mode unlocks all at once the next time you sign in.

Yep! And as an offline gamer I appreciate the ones that do.

I just finished the Zombie Chopper achievement. The moment you go through the gate opened by Dog USE ONLY THE GRAVITY GUN. Even swinging the crowbar will invalidate the achievement. Throughout the entirety of Ravenholm do not shoot any guns other than the Grav. Gun, and it will be rewarded as soon as you leave the mines at the very end of the stage.

Did you say you picked up Gregori's gun? EDIT: By mistake?

Never use cheats when trying to get achievements, except for cheap tricks that don't require you to enable sv_cheats. Don't play offline either, some games allow you to get achievements offline, like Portal 2, but not Half-Life 2, which means make sure you are logged into friends. another is to make sure you ONLY use the Gravgun, NOTHING else, not even your crowbar! No, no crowbar hacking the zombies when getting this achievement! Best things to use are buzz saws, propane tanks, and explosive barrels.
