    The first level can be used to complete this twice. The first part of the level when you are going down a rail (Standing and Sliding). As there is slow motion and such hit the signs and barrels as this will net you around 4-5 stars per kill. When you get to the bottom of the rail then use the cart (this will help for cart achievement) shooting who ever you can then before the counter stops go onto the next rail going upwards while shooting more of the environment to kill the enemies by the time your up should have around 50-60 star.

    The second part would be at the end when the guys first come out in the bar kill all of them get to the top and keep jumping and such so the slow motion comes as you always get more points for the slow motion the guys will come out 8-9 at a time 2-3 times before the final boss for this level.

    Mobius EvalonThat is probably the most unhelpful comment ever.

    As for this solution, I found it much easier to turn "Auto Tequila Time" OFF. The game kept using up all of the Tequila time on the rail at the beginning and I had none left when I needed it to keep the chain going. Use manual Tequila time only and use it between the two railings to keep your star combo up, because the enemies on the stairs at both ends are easy pickings without Tequila time.

    Below is the video of what has been said above... i must say i tried this around 10 times and the closest i got was around 42stars.. so i gave up and carried onto the end of the level where funny enough i unlocked it with a 54star chain while hanging from the lamp in the tea house. As soon as the cut scene is over i ran to the stairs 2 the right, melee attacked the guy coming down, and went straight to the top and jumped onto the light. Your aim needs to be pretty good but tequila time helps alot and you should rack up the stars fairly fast - just remember head shots if you can and use less bullets =D

    Yes, I've watched the youtube vid for doing this in the 1st section of the 1st chapter but failed on numerous occasions to actually get it. I finally got it in the last but one section of the same (1st) chapter...

    Just as you enter the teahouse turn left & go up the stairs to your left, diving & shooting the 1 or 2 guys as you go up. Turn left at the top & dive & shoot a couple more guys then do a U-turn & groups will start to come out of the door in front of you (door on the right @ the top of the stairs). Keep diving backwards & forwards shooting these groups.

    After 2 or 3 groups you should be up to around 42 stars. Jump on the banister to your right & onto the light/swing & finally shoot 2 or 3 guys on the opposite balcony... Achievement unlocked.

    This method took 2 or 3 attempts to get right whereas I had attempted what I had seen in the Youtube vid (& failed) many times.

    Hope this helps all you people who are as crap @ shooters as I am.

    PunzleyGood solution, took me 5-6 attempts but I got it with an exact 50-star combo.

    EthigyGreat solution, very easy method. Immediately ran to the top of the stairs and waited for a bunch of guys to run up after me before starting to kill. Didn’t even need to use the chandelier.
