    Just a quick tip.
    Do not use the rope directly to the right or left of the helm (steering wheel). Run to the mast of your ship and use the hook to travel up quickly. Now there will be a rope to the right or left of you that Edward will grab as he is jumping off the edge. I prefer using this rope because you are almost guaranteed an assassination because the target will not spot you and evade your attempt which seems to happen frequently when using the one on the ships deck,

    I8ITackyticsI8IIt's not too tough to do, just irritating. Just keep attacking ships regularly, preferably smaller ones. I actually used the one to the right of the ship's wheel, but found it easier when the boat lined up facing the same way as the other ship, as it is more likely to assassinate someone towards the back of the ship. This achievement requires a little patience, but I got it over the course of the game...

    Solario32Thank you so much. Using rope right next to wheel kept leading to me landing on rail or my attack getting blocked.

    A Dreadful ShotThis achievement seemed to be buggy for me. I got well over the required amount before it popped. Also, I used the ropes to the left and right of the wheel and they worked fine. When boarding the ship just try positioning your ship so the helm is lined up with the approximate middle of theirs.

    Well this is my fist guide ever so here it goes.


    To get this achievement you will need to incapacitate a certain ship I think a frigate is best because of its size it is about the same size as your jackdaw.

    When your in the boarding process DO NOT rope in right away wait until your ship and the other ship are very close so that you don't accidentally dive into the water.

    When your close use the rope and aim for the soldiers trying to detach the grappling hook and after the assassination go back to your ship and repeat. (It is possible to get double assassination so try and wait for an opening if there is one)

    TheDude722also make sure you have hidden blade or swords selected... bare-handed knock-outs don't count ;)
