The description for the "Ow My Balls!" achievement reads as follows:

  • Do your first nutshot AND testicle assault.

I've made several nutshots so far and I've also done several testicle assaults but this achievement hasn't popped for me yet. To that end, I have a few questions about how to get this.

  • Do I have to do a nutshot and a testicle assault on the same enemy?
  • Do I actually have to kill them via the testicular assault or is it enough to just hit them once with it? I've so far only been hitting them once with it. Is that not enough?
  • Does it have to be on a male character? Saints Row 2 allowed you to get nutshots on women, but the testicular assault wasn't in that game, so I'm unsure if this is a requirement here.

So I did a bunch of testing on this tonight. This is what I have found:

  • The nutshot and the testicle assault do not have to be done on the same enemy. The achievement simply pops after you have done each activity the first time. I killed a gang member via testicular assault without doing a nutshot on him and acquired the achievement.

  • You need to actually kill the enemy via testicular assault in order to get the achievement. You'll know when you have done this because you'll see a popup for Respect with the name Testicular Manslaughter. Hitting an enemy twice with a testicular assault will get this done.

  • It does have to be done on a male character. I tried doing testicular assaults on female gang members, and while I was able to kill them and they did the animation, I did not get credit for a Testicular Manslaughter.


I got this one by:

  • Shooting someone in the nuts with a pistol (thereby causing them to grab their nuts)
  • Hitting them with the testicular assault, which killed them

I did this on a male rival gang member, I don't know if that was important or not.

I don't know if this is the only way to unlock it, but this is how it popped for me.

  • I just started playing co-op with a friend, and I told him this, he did these steps and got it as well.

I don't recall if I got it against a male or female character, but you may wanna look at the solutions for it on True Achievements. There's usually a notice if the achievement is broken.
