To fully distract enemies with rocks, one must throw it nearby them and allow them to investigate the location of where the rock landed. You must then allow them to look around and return to where they were before the distraction was created, and once they do, it'll count as a "full distract". It'd help if you marked your enemies before attempting to distract them first because you can analyse what they are doing, as well as know when they have completed their survey and started to return to their original patrol route. Repeat 24 more times across your vacation on Rook Island.

Good luck.
Please tell me why you negative voted because currently, this is the only guide that has explained what full distraction is, no offense (I will change the wording if you can't understand).

*EDIT* Thanks Rustybroom and Amatorskii (via comments); it seems to be that enemies can actually be distracted more than 3 times, so it is possible to grind this achievement on just one enemy.

*EDIT #2* It'd be nice if someone could confirm this statement, but it is very possible for a "full distract" to count when the distracted target is speaking after the rock was thrown (Pay homage to I SoLuS I for the info).

To throw a rock press cn_right and Jason will throw a rock in the direction you're aiming.

Once a rock has been thrown near an enemy they will walk off to inspect what the noise was, after a few seconds of looking around they will return to their original location.

You will get a lot of these distractions though liberating outposts and playing the story but if like me you need to grind some there is a Trial at the coordinates X424.4 Y769.3 called 'Hide and Seek'. This trial spawns you behind two enemies, throw a rock with cn_right and slowly move behind the rock formation behind you. Watch them inspect your rock and once they have returned to their position aim near them again and throw another rock.

The trial gives you round a minute to do this and once the trial fails you can retry to continue grinding.
