This is a skill that your main character will acquire during his development towards Rank 10. Chosing that one will be automatic as there are no other upgrades for that level, therefore acquisition is unmissable.

I have gained it during my Easy playthrough, once doing all Minor Operations. Now with Commander difficulty I am focusing only on Major Operations and as I approach the end of the campaign, it can easily be the case that I'll not reach the needed level for it to unlock. Therefore, I suggest to do some Minor Ops as soon as possible, to make sure to unlock.

It will appear at the bottom of your command circle, at the same place where 'Heal' at the beginning. The cooldown period is very long, therefore you need to wait for it to refill and use it as frequently as possible, to make sure get enough kills until the end of campaign.

It is targetting as all other individual focuses ability: you select the victim and activate the ability on them. They will start killing their own, eventually unlocking the achievements. Lot of damage on the victim will unwear the effect, therefore try not to shoot at him as long as the effent is active. It is worthwhile to target sturdier subjects (Mutons), or effective killers (Phantoms), to make sure they can get some kills before their owns obliterate them.

The achievement will unlock during the operation, right after the 15th kill.

At Rank 8 you will unlock Ability: Mind Control - Controls an enemey's mind, making it fight its allies.

You should use this on the strongest enemy in a group, and then order you squad to retreat so that they don't steal any kills. You can take down the other enemies health, to help your mind controlled enemy get more kills. When the Mind Control wears off, you can fall back and wait for the ability to recharge, so that you can use it again.

At Rank 9 you should choose Mind Merge - Makes Mind Control targets tougher and increases their damage.

The Mind Control ability has a long recharge time, so I recommend equipping one of these backpacks, at least until you get the achievement:
Quick Charge Pack - Reduces the recharge time for all abilities.
Tactical Focus Pack - Significantly reduces the recharge times for all abilities, but weapons become less accurate.
Health Converter Pack - Reduces the wearer's health but ability recharge times are much faster.

I reached Rank 8 at the start of Chapter 5 - Crack in the World, and got the achievement near the end of that mission.
