After Sequence 3, you get the blunderbuss and can run around on your own. Many people choose to have lots of soldiers chase them to a choke point and then blast the group. If that becomes difficult for you, there's a possibly easier way that doesn't require the cat-and-mouse game.

There's a restricted area on the Port-au-Prince map along the southern part of the shoreline, directly west of the south-western viewpoint (not the small square at the viewpoint). You'll see a platform with several cannons and near it are lots of soldiers lined up nicely in a row for you with another soldier barking orders at them. While staying out of the restricted area (I approached from the beach) but close enough to line up a shot (make the soldier line as narrow as possible but keep each one visible), blast at the 5 lined-up soldiers. You should kill them all, but then you'll be attacked by a few soldiers near the area. Easy enough for your superb skills, though, right? ;) The achievement popped for me several seconds after the blunderbuss blasting.

If you do not see 5 soldiers lined up like I did, then either reload the area, or you might be able to catch a slave convoy passing by. Add them to the soldiers near the cannons and that will give you enough soldiers to attempt the other way and get them mad at you for a chance to group them up for a blunderbuss shot.

Let me start by saying, I know most people just want to get achievements as quickly as they can. However, if you don't mind waiting until sequence 9, you can get this as easily as possible. You don't have to run around and get guards to chase you or really do any work at all.

At the beginning of sequence 9, head towards the front gate of the compound where your target is. Right next to the gate are some stalking zones, get in the one closest to the gate. Once there you will see about six or seven guards standing there. All you have to do now is pull out your blunderbuss, aim in the middle of the group and fire! I did it on my first try. Just to check, I tried it three more times, I got at least five guards every time.

One of the optional objectives for this memory is to kill five guards with the blunderbuss. This way you get this optional objective done and the achievement in one shot.

Tip: After you shoot the guards, equip your smoke bombs. There will be guards all over the place, so you will want to have these ready to help you escape them. This way you can get to the final area where your target will be going.
