    Once you have a few Caltrop Bombs (either by crafting them or buying them from a black market dealer), look around for a scaffold. I found a lot of scaffold around the docks area in the Galata District.

    Once you have located a scaffold find some nearby guards and piss them off so they are chasing you. You will carefully have to throw your bomb down so they are "stunned" in the front of the scaffold. Once they are stunned, you will have to run using RT and by running parallel to the front of the scaffold, once you get to the edge of the scaffold you'll have to press b, make sure you untarget whom ever you have targeted as the game automatically targets someone that was stunned by the Caltrop Bomb.

    This process is tricky and I recommend you testing it out first. Also please check out the posted video as it shows you how to do it because it is harder to explain verbally then it is to physically show you.

    It is a cumulative total, I know this first hand because I had four deaths on my first scaffold and on my second scaffold (consisting on three deaths) the achievement pop'd.

    OG Gary Goonie: "i stood at the scaffold and shot the enemy, just to avoid the chase sequence."
    Thanks for the addition

    Props to YouTube user PowerPyx for the video on

    Laurizio83Great guide! Thanks a lot! You speak very fluently and at the right pace so us non-english folk have a better chance of understanding what is going on. Keep up the good work!

    Glowblue1Your video worked great for me - would've been better if you mentioned that the description for this individual achievement starts at 3:52 in the video so we wouldn't have to go looking for it.

    1> include that this is a cumulative achievement. You don't have to get all 5 kills in one try.

    2> The fastest way to reset the area is to use the tunnel to travel somewhere else and come right back.

    Just to add to all of the guides above, i recommend as well as crafting the caltrop bombs craft some cherry bombs. then once you have found a scaffold wait until a guard unit is in earshot, throw the cherry bomb to attract the guards directly in front of the scaffold then throw the caltrops to stun them before running in and dragging the scaffold down on top of them. should only take a couple of tries to get the timing down.
