    First off if you haven't played the game yet use the other guides posted and gain this achievement it will save you some trouble.

    If you pass the Shanty Town/Gondola sections without gaining the achievement you will have to use this method once game is complete.

    I had completed the game and realized I had missed this thinking another playthrough was required I read some comments on here from Ryozenzuzex
    to which I give full credit for helping me and hopefully others in the same predicament...

    Fast travel to Helicopter Hill in Shanty Town, go to here on the map to be exact

    You Should be looking out to tower above something like this (If zipline isnt where it is on picture you will have to climb tower to make it so) jump on rail in front of you and to the roof behind jump on zipline and use the rope ascender (hold x) to get to the top.

    Enemies should spawn (If they don't re-enter Helicopter Hill I could only get enemies to spawn in the daytime) turn around zip down to where you were and enemies should follow I found the rifle works best to knock them off the line but weapon of choice is up to you, once they're killed run back to zip-line ascend again enemies spawn again and repeat until achievement pops.

    Cheers to SiebeTolsma who used this guide and was kind enough to make a video version

    You can start on this achievement as soon as you are at the base exterior after you cross the bridge and kill a few guys going up an incline, a few more bad guys will shoot arrows at you from above, two or three guys should use the zip line, shoot them off with your rifle.

    After that, you have to take out a few more guys and you will end up on top of a concrete slab. Dodge the arrows and a few about two or three guys will use the zip line as well, so if done right you should have about 4 or 6 kills from the ziplines.

    The rest will come at Shantytown, when you get ambushed, shoot a few guys until you arrive at a cutscene, pull out your shotgun and shoot those that come down the zipline. If done right you should have the achievement, if not there are two other locations in Shantytown where the ziplines are used. Below is a video of of a couple of the Shantytown fights.

    The best places to get this achievement are during the fights in the Shanty Town and Transport Gondola sections of the game. Keep an eye on enemies using the zip lines and shoot them down when you see them.

    The guys who jump on the zip likes are usually the ones holding swords, axes or melee weapons.

    Below are tips from NeXuS23 -

    If you die during these sections it will reset how many times you've killed guys off of the zip lines so make sure to try do it in one go.

    Transport Gondola: It's best to stay behind cover when you drop down and not go forward. This makes sure that they keep using the zip lines so you can shoot them down. I counted 14 till it popped!

    Please read the other solution if you're unclear of something. I unlocked this on the Definitive Edition of the game, however this should work the same way for the 360.

    NOTE: If the enemies were killed on this tower at any point in the game, you cannot do this method

    1) Fast travel to Helicopter Hill
    2) Connect the rope to the tower shown in the video.
    3) Now use the zipline and go up to the tower with 2 enemies.
    4) Immediately ride the zipline down.
    5) Hide behind the small structure and wait for them to come down the zipline. (They won't come if you are visible. You must be hidden from them.)
    6) Equip your bow and draw back on it all the way. Press cn_LB to slow down time, if you are having trouble. Only go for headshots! This is very important.

    This achievement is really glitchy and it took me well over 50 kills to get. Once I realized nothing else was working, I used my bow, pulled back all the way on it, used cn_LB and went for headshots. Sure enough, after my 4th headshot, the achievement unlocked. Getting 10 headshots still might not unlock the achievement. Instead, go for 20 headshots before completely giving up on this method.

    If the bow doesn't work, I've heard of people using a shotgun instead. This is more trickier to do though, as you need to time your shot almost perfectly.

    Also, make sure that the enemies die while on the zipline. They will die, and it will look like they are floating in the air. This is also how you do the multiplayer achievement for killing an enemy on a zipline. It must be done while they are on the zipline, meaning headshot.

    If neither of these methods work, try shooting the enemy once with a pistol then go for a headshot. Good luck :) Video credit by me.

    Be aware of this achievement!!!

    This is the only achievement in the game that COULD make you play a second play-through. (You won't have to play a full 2nd play through, just a partial.)

    There are limited opportunities to get zip-line kills.

    Play-through opportunities:
    Base Exterior: 2 zip line kills. After the 'U-turn', guys will shoot you from a tower. After the tower, jump up a wall, and 2 zip line guys will come at you. if you do not get these guys on the zip line, restart check point.

    Cliff side Village: ???? I'm not sure about this one, but try your best. You'll be captured on the bridge, and wake up in a bloody room with a bunch of dead bodies. You'll get the shotgun, then will be in a room. 6 men will come DOWN 2 ziplines. Try to get 5 or all of them. just in case. (I'm not sure these count.)

    Shanty-town. 8+ zip line kills. HERE WE GO.
    + After grimm and the ladder, you'll be assaulted with dynamite. after the dynamite, there will be 6 zip line guys. get them all, or restart check point.

    + Just after the gondola you'll be attacked. There will be at least 4 zip line guys. get them all.

    Post-Play-through opportunities:
    The only way you're going to get this achievement is to go back to shanty town later. You can do this while you're finishing the game. When you go back to shanty town, random enemies will appear in random places. You'll have to search them out. Look at the other solution for the only place to get zip line kills. Note: enemies do not re-spawn in the same place twice. So, if the zip line guys spawn, you MUST get the achievement then. other wise, exit the game and try again.
