    Load Memory 4 called "A Ship of His Own" and play the Firecrackers Tutorial ( 15-30sec)

    Dont jump down to kill the Tutorial Guards, stay at the Roof and go forward. On the left Side stays a Guard at the Roof, kill him and go in the direction to the powder Keg (Symbol)

    If you above the powder Keg, switch to Firecrackers and throw it down. Wait until all 5 investigate the Firecracker then Shoot with the Blunderbluss the powder Keg.

    Reload the Checkpoint if you failed. This is one of the easiest and repeatable Way for this Achievement.

    bblcreator8790Doesn't work - either the guards don't get close enough or one of them survives somehow. Powder kegs are unreliable in killing guards - you're better off just trying to kill the guards directly with the blunderbuss.

    TREKWARS QYou have to wait until the patrolling guard makes his way there and toss the firecrackers right next to the building near the road. Then the guys from around the corner will run there as well giving you six guys within the blast radius.

    This was a really easy achievement for me. Once you get the blunderbuss just go to the main city and get a group of guards to attack/follow you. Then quickly turn around and fire at the group. Achievement unlocked

    After Sequence 3, you get the blunderbuss. Many people choose to have lots of soldiers chase them to a choke point and then blast the group. If that becomes difficult for you, there's a possibly easier way that doesn't require the cat-and-mouse game.

    There's a restricted area on the Port-au-Prince map along the southern part of the shoreline, directly west of the south-western viewpoint (not the small square at the viewpoint). You'll see a platform with several cannons and near it are lots of soldiers lined up nicely in a row for you with another soldier barking orders at them. While staying out of the restricted area (I approached from the beach) but close enough to line up a shot (make the soldier line as narrow as possible but keep each one visible), blast at the 5 lined-up soldiers. You should kill them all, but then you'll be attacked by a few soldiers near the area. Easy enough for your superb skills, though, right? ;) The achievement popped for me several seconds after the blunderbuss blasting.

    * I already had the achievement before I recorded this clip. You can see 6 corpses on the ground when I walk up to them: 1 on the platform plus the 4 that were bunched up, then the last guy I shot later

    If you do not see 5 soldiers lined up like I did, then either reload the area, or you might be able to catch a slave convoy passing by. Add them to the soldiers near the cannons and that will give you enough soldiers to attempt the other way and get them mad at you for a chance to group them up for a blunderbuss shot.
