    Craft a Smoke Bomb with a large AOE Range, then go to the Southwest of the City (watch the Video for a exact Location)

    This is also a good location to get the following Achievements:
    Assassin's Creed: RevelationsI can see youThe I can see you achievement in Assassin's Creed: Revelations worth 32 pointsKill 5 guards while under the cover of a smoke screen bomb.

    Assassin's Creed: RevelationsMosh PitThe Mosh Pit achievement in Assassin's Creed: Revelations worth 46 pointsHave 10 guards poisoned at the same time.

    If you fail just enter the Animus Island and go back in the City, the Guards should be back. Climb the archway, throw (if you want a cherry bomb to lure all guards to one spot) the smoke bomb and jump into the smoke, press x a few times.

    Shinwasha: Tunnel Exit is Arcadius for people who want to know that.

    Tazwaz: I was having the same trouble as everone then slightly changed my strategy and got it first try. I did everything the same as the video did and in the same location except instead of climbing the arch and juping down i did it all from the ground and changed my cherry bomb a bit by making it have the sticky pouch instead of the impact shell. making this change gives the bomb a fuse which gives you a few seconds to set, up change to your smoke screen bombs, and turn on your eagle vision then walk into the smoke and mash the x button while walking twords enemies ** do not hold right trigger because high profile kills take more time to exectute just walk and x button** HOPE THIS HELPS!!

    Legohead 1977Worked eventually, but I had to do it from the ground level, so I can only assume the double aerial kill doesn't count as part of the five? Tried so many times but the Cherry Bomb, then Smoke Bomb seemed to be the only successful way.

    Load up the Piri Reis Mission: Caltrops and throw the caltrop bomb as the tutorial asks, then simply run up and duel execute 4 guards and quickly execute the last guard :)

    kheopsstill works, got it with NO RT for the first and second double kill, but RT for the last one (not sure this last changes a thing though)

    netstrykerSimply the best of the best of all solutions. But I would like to give a tip for fast success. Throw the bomb, run and kill the soldiers on center first with two blades at once, so kill the remain on the right and on background with the two blades at once too, and finally kill the last on left. In this order and pretty fast anyone can get the cheevo on the first attempt.
