"Nova Say Die" glitched?

One of the challenges I'm having trouble with is

  • Nova Say Die: Kill 5 enemies with a Nova shield

I have a nova shield equipped, and it send an electric shock when it gets depleted, however, the kills don't seem to register towards the badass challenge.

Is this a known bug? Or am I simply missing something.

I believe the nova itself has to kill them. I had issues with the DoT effects killing them instead & it didn't count.

Torgue make some explosive nova shields and you just need a white one from a random vending machine, just go back to an earlier area and let the skags munch you for a bit.

and you've killed atleast 50 enemies with it cumulatively? and nothing is counting.

This^
 

It has to be the Nova that kills the enemy - nothing else. Also make sure you don't have any skills active that might be interfering with the Nova.

I think claptrap has one skill that activates when ur shield gets depleted and it deals damage to enemies. Maybe that could be interfering with the challenge?

I gave up on the location and went to holodome instead, worked. 

Used the exact same shield as the one in the video. Might have something to do with the fact it gets depleted by the lava instead of the enemies.

Indeed, seems like environment damage triggering the effect does not count, even if it kills enemies. The enemy should trigger the effect. I think one enemy triggering the effect, resulting in killing multiple also counts as one. Didn't pay much attention to the count so I'm not sure about the last one. But given the fact that environment trigger does not count, it's safe to assume it does.
