    *Mild spoilers* After you finish up Desmond's sequence on the Skyscraper, and start playing Sequence 6, you obtain the rope darts. Basically, they're a spear head on a rope. Once you're back out on the Homestead, you will see an Artisan mission for a woman named Myriam. Talk to her and you'll notice she's hurt, and you'll go back to the house with her. You then must go out and kill the poachers who hurt her, and Achilles even mentions how this is the perfect opportunity to use the rope dart. You will have 3 darts from this point, so it's best to buy 2 rope darts before going out to get the poachers.

    Once you climb to the tree stand, you have to go out and kill the poachers. To do this specific achievement, be up in a tree near the poachers. Hold Y to grab one with your rope dart and pull back on the left stick to hang them from the tree. If you don't get enough poachers during the mission (there's 4-5 you'll be able to this on in the mission), you can just find some red coats wandering around in the Frontier to do this on too.

    If you don't wish to have to go look for some red coats, you could also use the rope dart on the first two poachers (as they are the easiest to get) and reload the checkpoint for the mission. You'll be back up in the tree stand, and you can kill them again, reload one more time and get the achievement in the next go around. (Credit to Chicago AJ for this tip)

    geobandit212Using rope darts is one of the most fun and satisfying ways to eliminate a guard. Easy to do as there are plenty of patrols that move along under these branches in the Frontier

    Piece of cake achievement.

    Fill up your rope darts to 5. Find a tree branch in a central location in Boston or New York that is easy to climb up repeatedly (There are several scattered through out each map. I did it in New York). You could try to do it on a line that stretches between two buildings but I don't feel they are as easy to reach in quick succession as some of the trees.

    Wait for a convoy of troops to walk by (you'll know because you'll here the moron with the drums announcing their arrival). Then target the highest ranked guy in the group (usually in the front).

    Have your rope dart selected, HOLD (don't tap) Y and pull down (or "back") on the LEFT stick...and up goes the guard. Freakin' sweet move! I love it! :-) Then run up the tree and repeat 4 more times.

    Any gun fire hitting you should be at a minimal as long as you keep moving. Especially if you take out the higher ranked guys who are a better shot first. The lower ranked guys are terrible at hitting moving targets.
