    Here's a video of a quick way to grind sneak kills at Ch. 2 of this game.
    On the video I got 6 sneak kills in 4 minutes and 30 seconds.
    (I recorded the clip using Xbox One so it's on OneDrive. I'll update the solution after I've uploaded it to YouTube)

    NOTE: You have to wait few seconds after each sneak kill for it to register towards the Challenge before you load the autosave. I suggest Snapping this Challenge on the Achievements App to know when it registered.

    KlaashThanks for your help on this challenge. I would've given you a positive vote, but I didn't realize your voting ability was taken away once you post a solution for the same achievement. Speaking of which, I hope you don't mind me expanding on your solution to cut down on the time needed to complete the process.

    As I just received this game for Christmas, EX slay3r's well-demonstrated video and accompanying solution were of great help to me in earning this challenge before the deadline. But as time grows ever shorter on the chance to unlock it, I thought some of you might appreciate a way to double your kill count by adding just a few extra seconds to each retry. My solution also takes place during Chapter 2, starting immediately after the autosave and cut-scene identified in the video.

    Using EX slay3r's method to build from, my version similarly involves running past the first enemy to attack the second. Before doing this, however, take a moment to grab the wine bottle sitting right in front of you when the cut-scene ends. You will drop the bottle while performing the sneak kill, so quickly stand up with cn_RB, move forward slightly, and pick it up again. You might accidentally snag the nearby note or any items your victim may have spilled on the ground, but you should recover fast enough if you keep pushing cn_A to cycle through any prompts that pop up. By this time, the first enemy will likely have figured out where you went and circled back to avenge his friend. With bottle in hand, turn towards him, aim at his head by holding cn_LT, and throw by pressing cn_RT. If the bottle connects, the impact should stun him long enough for you to get close and execute another sneak kill (cn_RB + cn_A). If you don't yet have it, these actions should also earn you the following achievement...

    As EX slay3r already mentioned, just wait a few seconds for the kill to register before reloading the autosave. And if you should unfortunately miss the throw, another bottle can be found back at the hay bale where you began this whole scenario. Or alternatively, just skip right to the reload process with the happy thought that you're at least one kill closer to fulfilling the challenge goal. Please check out the video, as it can show you all the action much better than I can explain it.

    mcnichojThis method helped me a lot on my Japanese run but on my English one I finished the game and using the Agony Bolt on NG+ is way faster. Thanks.
    To speed things up just a tad faster, once the second guy does his "death twitch" animation after he falls, you can press start and go straight to reload checkpoint. By the time you get to the yes/no, the percentage should pop.
