    Before you pull all your hair out trying to find Captains with the right weakness to try to combat brand using A+B after you get a high hit streak like you would with normal Uruk, there is a much simpler way to unlock this achievement.

    Bring up any Test challenge, preferably one where you start with intel such as Test of Wisdom. Pick and choose Captains by proximity to your current location and mark them. Use your wraith vision to locate them. Try to isolate your Captain as best you can once found so you don't have other Uruk interfering. You simply need to fight until the Captain's health bar turns green, grab him with RB and hold on. You'll have the option to brand with B while holding him. Simply hold B until the branding bar is full. Repeat with twenty different captains and you'll unlock this challenge.

    xGamBeaTxhah, and I'm doing the cn_A+cn_B stuff and wondering why I'm not getting any progress whatsoever

    Mr Yacthanks, I was trying to figure out how this challenge was going to work for at least a month now since I don't think I've ever gotten a captain with the actual combat brand.

    AradorMight want to add that it has to be 20 different captains, once they are branded you can't just keep re branding them

    Das KuhnenGood spot for this. I'm actually doing it in the regular game though to setup for next week's riots and murders challenge.
