Before earning:

After earning:

  • "It is the east and the flare gun is the sun to 50 Taken".


You must kill 50 Taken with flare guns. Birds and possessed objects do not count. Due to the sparse nature of flare gun ammo, it is likely that this achievement will take more than one play-through to meet its requirements.

  • The quote can be found in William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet.
  • The full quote is: "What Light Through Yonder Window Breaks".
