    For that you need to unlock the Thief Faction ability, which is Thief loot. You do that by performing this three Objectives:

    --> 40x Perform a Leap of Faith
    --> Climb a total distance of 1 km
    --> Steal 250 € with a Counter Steal

    For a Counter Steal you look on to a Target, hold RT and Press Y in the right time. If you have the Ability you search for Thief group and hire them. Then kill 50 Guards and your Thief will loot them automatically.

    Saw3d 0ffIf you are having trouble finding Thieves to hire, check around one of the Thieves Guild buildings, or go to an empty faction building and turn it into a Thieves Guild. There will be some thieves nearby. Hire them and start killing guards.

    If you want to farm this really fast here are some tips and things to know-

    1. Go this area on the map (Bottom left area of the game world-

    2. Turn the nearby faction building into a Thieves guild, and now find a group of thieves nearby and hire them

    3. Go to the small field in the area on the map I linked above-- now kill the guards in the area (see below for more tips about this)

    4. Allow your thieves to loot them by remaining in the area near the dead guards, and walk over the corpses It will take a while to loot them all, sometimes it's better to just start a new run instead of waiting for EVERY single guard last to be looted. Get 90% of them and move on.

    5. Now run towards the nearby fast travel. Travel anywhere, and then immediately return to the "Arcadius" location (near the top of the list). Don't bother stopping to kill any guards in between your travels, this will probably just slow you down because your thieves will be stealing from citizens more than the few dead guards you are able to make for them.

    6. Rehire your thieves, return to the field with the group of guards, and repeat until the achievement pops.

    Optional: Remember to call your assassins to assist in dispatching the guards. Bring smoke screen bombs (or shrapnel) with you if you want to make this even faster. Deploy the smoke screen, and use your hidden blade to kill the guards quickly and without resistance.

    DEATHLockedJust to add ome clarity, counter steals can only be accomplished during a fight with gaurds. You cannot counter steal from citizens.

    And then once youve unlocked the thief ability as shown in King fiShiZ's guide, you then need to hire a group of theives, these are dotted around the city, or near a thief designated faction building or near the thief HQ marked by the mask icon on the map.

    Once you have your thieves you then need to set about killing guards, any will do as the thieves will follow you everywhere. Just kill guards then they will come and loot the guard for you and the spoils of war will pop up on your screen, just like you looted them yourself.

    DO NOT get them to lure guards as they will probably dissapear

    Hope this helps as it took me a while to work out what it meant.

    This solution shows you were to find a group of thieves and quickly start looting bodies. Once you've cleared out the camp run back to the thieves guild, hire another group and make your way back to the same area. Remember to call in your assassins for help killing guards once in the camp.
