    On the first level of the Instincts story, after you exit the wreck at the beginning of the level and climb up the vines you will be told to stealth kill the enemy in front of you and trap kill the next enemy.

    Stealth kill the first and then do the same for the next (ignore the instructions). The B button won't come up for the second kill but your knife will change position when you get close enough.

    Then you can set a trap and walk into it to reload the checkpoint. Continue until the achievement unlocks.

    Note: you can also get it during story play if you want. Even after you get your evolution upgrade you can still get the stealth kill if you get close enough (the B button prompt will appear).

    troyoySounds like a guy could go for the trap kills here too. Thumbs up.

    If you do choose to play though the story mode to get this achievement there will be a few freebees. On each playthrough you will encounter several technicians and scientists, i'd guesstimate at twenty or so. They won't attack, they go into the fetal position or kneel with there hands up. You can crouch and run behind them. Press B to stealth kill will be an option.

    I got my Shadow Hunter while killing a guy with this method.

    Should anyone still be trying for this one, I found another easy way of doing this. At the end of the second proper level in the Instincts campaign, called 'native', you need to cover Val with a sniper rifle. This is right before you get captured by Crowe's men. To get to the sniper position you need to climb up some vines and you'll end up behind a sniper preoccupied with shooting Val. The game obviously prompts you to backstab him but what's wonderful about this is that you get a checkpoint right as you end up behind the sniper. Stab him in the back => reload checkpoint => proceed to do it 40 times.

    If you downvote, please tell me why, so I can improve the solution.

    OpproperaarYes, but why? I can't improve the solution if you don't tell me.

    tazy1956It’s now 2017 and I can probably tell why those 4 gave you a negative vote. But in my option they where very childish as in principle there is very little wrong with your explanation. First of my checkpoint was straight after i climbed those vines and not right behind the sniper. But that’s only 2 seconds before you get to the sniper. And second, after stabbing the sniper you can’t reload checkpoint as the kill won’t count. You have to wait until they kill Val and then click on Load Savepoint. Now if you reloaded your checkpoint from the in game menu 40 times and not get the achievement i can understand that's annoying but i worked that out by myself anyway. So as i said it’s childish but as i did they should have known to let the game run its course and then just click on load savepoint. So I still gave you a positive vote. Hope this explain things to you

    tazy1956Also this is a good location to do the Feral Warrior achievement. Just don’t get to close to the sniper this time. Just press B as soon as the promp for a Feral Punch comes up. Then wait for Val to be killed and klick on Load Savepoint. Repeat until the achievement pops
