You can complete this at any point in the story as long as you have upgraded the Deflect Arrows ability to level 2 under the training skill tree.

Once you have this ability unlocked and upgraded, you then need to locate an enemy with a bow or crossbow. This shouldn't be too difficult as there are plenty of enemies in the game with them. But bandits usually carry them. If you have passed chapter 2 like I did, then you can find several bandits in the forest north of Vergan.

When you locate your enemies, make a save and then use your sword to block. Blocking will deflect any arrows back towards the enemies that fired that at you with the upgraded ability. If you manage to kill an enemy with the deflection and this doesn't unlock, reload your save and use your silver sword. As you can see in the video below that my the main sword doesn't always unlock this achievement. So, you may want to use your silver sword the first time.

If you manage to pull this off with either sword, but still don't unlock this, it's possible that the enemy threw a knife at you instead.
