Pretty easy to get, are you lv80? Just 1HK a rat or something with your strongest burst move.

I got mine in CoE story by blasting the air elemental things with the radiation gun (part of the story progression). It easily hits over 300k damage.

my warrior killshots rabbits for over 1,600k. I'm not even dps spec. Just stack might on yourself and vulnerability on the target, pop your full-adrenaline heal and have at it.

You can easily do it without the condition/boon.

My thief backstabs unbuffed 460k.

CoE story mode is the best place as some others said.

Buy a Sentinel Rifle (Single-use consumable. Buy it in Iron Marches, I think. It costs next to nothing).
Then use it to one-shot a Branded monster.

yep use a strong 1 hit move (multiple hit moves may or may not work cause the damage is spread out and you'll most likely kill the critter on the first hit) on white named animals.

From a Charr NPC in Iron Marches, a few weeks ago along the border where the Branded creatures appear. I instantly maxed Master of Overkill using it on a branded creature - but my buffs may have had something to do with it (near-perma crits and a few stacks of Might)

Somebody posted better information here
"Sentinel Doomsheath north of Lake Desolann in the East side of Iron Marches. The item is 8 copper so it is really cheap."

That guy somehow used one to hit for 4,557,800 against Howling King (AC dungeon). It may well have been stealth-nerfed by now. I bought a whole bunch since they were so cheap, and I have loads left. So maybe I will try it again later to check. I'm not going to try it on anything but a random open-world common Branded monster though. Using it on bosses etc as per that link, could well be classed as a bannable "exploit". Use with caution!

Found the merchant. he sells the rifle. But it now gives a "this content has temporarily been disabled" message when you try to use it.

Odd. I remember using it a couple of weeks ago and it worked fine. Maybe they view using it to get this achievement as "not intended" and temporarily disabled it till they create a fix.

Based on what was being said in the link I posted, I think it's more likely they disabled it to stop teams insta-gibbing dungeon bosses...

Seems like the rifle works again. but I had only one. Someone who has a few left who can test what changes were made?

Used the rifle on a branded, only 6k. I can't imagine it doing over 4 mil to a legendary dungeon boss.

EDIT: tried it again on non-branded enemies...zero damage. A Dolyak and an Icebrood Mauler.  Going to test it on Shatterer when it pops. There's a chance of it exploding in your face and CD'ing your skills for 60 seconds, too. Use with caution.

EDIT #2: does not one-shot the shatterer. I couldn't get a good opportunity to line up with other branded creatures but my other testing says that it doesn't matter anyway. 6k average peak damage per hit, regardless of number of enemies in a row.

EDIT #3: Tried it for kicks on other enemies while waiting for tequatl...it does damage consistent with other targets, but does not instant-kill.

BTW it's really fun. Try some crazy stuff out with it...you'll be surprised. No details besides what's already given here and in the reddit thread.
