    I actually got this inadvertently when trying to get the 3 for 1 with a RC bomb car. During the shrouded bunker mission, after going down the elevator there is a guy with his back turned who is perfect for a silent kill with the crossbow. Now i had saved my game before this cause of the group of guys after him for the RC bomb car chevo. After trying numerous times and continuously reloading my save this achievement popped. I had killed 2 people earlier so it was right at 8 times that I got this. So apparently reloading saves works for these types of achievements.

    JamesonNote: you do not have to die and reload. You can just shoot the guy, immediately pause, load save, repeat. The weird thing is that the counter of "Crossbow Stealth Kills" in your Statistics menu will not increment, but you get the achievement anyway.

    Comedian Josh WWorked like a charm !

    I just wanted to add some points if I may.

    When I was searching this, I was looking for what exactly counted as a stealth kill. Did you have to crouch? Do you have to be undetected? Does it have to be a kill from behind?

    I was curious because I was killing guys with the bow and arrow, but no achievement.

    Anyway, I can add that you DO NOT have to be crouching, as your method here worked without me doing that.

    So for anyone curious, like I was, or perhaps is looking to do it without this exploit, it seems as though a stealth kill is a kill that is done BEFORE you are detected, and subsequently in a gunfight. Anything after that will not count.

    Thank you for allowing me to make this little addition, and hope it may help anyone in my former shoes.

    THUMBS UP to this Solution !!

    I found the best place to get the stealth kills was on the "Gaining Influence" mission. This is on Disc 2, and the way point you are aiming for is Infiltrate Power Plant.
    I put a save in before i entered the plant, (I had 2 stealth kills up to this point).
    When you enter there will be a Gearhead whilstling whilst sweeping the floor, he has his back to you and his head bowed down slightly,and doesn't notice you when you enter. You just need to aim at his head and chalk up your kill, then turn around and leave through the door you just came through, and repeat till you have your 10 kills.
    The game will give you a message saying that all mission progress will be lost, (and your stealth kill stats will reflect this), but the kills still count.

    Warboy925+1, instead I did it much earlier when I had to go back and get the advanced RC car plans from the Shrouded Hideout, there was an easy kill to the right, and I just exited and re-entered 7 more times till I got the last 8 I needed.....
