    quite easy to pull off you have to play the game into around the 3rd asssasination then you regain the ability to perform counter kills basically press X just before the sword hits you dont button mash as this wont work (it could rarely though), also altair sometimes will do a non lethal version these do not count as far as i know, also can be done in the training ground also read this off the forums, also best done with a dagger as it is a fast weapon compared to the longsword.

    Eagle's Swiftness (20 points) - Perform 100 Counter Kill in Fights.

    You should get this one during normal play however see the FIGHTING TIPS below if you are having trouble...


    GUARD A LOT and counter on those who can break your guarding! If you are finding yourself getting hurt you heal in combat. If you get hurt just guard A LOT. If you don't get hit you will slowly heal.

    If you are having a hard time with the counter skill you can practice all you want in Masyaf.

    The best place to fight for most of the combat achievements is a very large guard outpost near Acre. To fight in it just leave Acre and then follow the path, it will split up in two directions. One goes straight and the other goes left (almost like a U-turn). Follow it left and you will be at the outpost. It has a very large amount of guards to get your achievements if your having trouble with them.
