    Hunting challenges can be completed as you travel around Mordor. To obtain this achievement, you must complete 4 of them. The challenges must be completed in this order. You can use the map screen (cn_back) to see which challenge you are currently working on.

    For each challenge, you can use the ability mode (cn_LB) to see the creatures easily. If you find yourself struggling with any that require precision, consider upgrading your abilities to have more focus time.

    Hunting Challenge 1: Kill 3 Ungol Spiders
    Spiders can be seen commonly roaming around Mordor. Simply take your sword and kill 3 of them.

    Hunting Challenge 2: Kill 5 Flying Creatures
    This is slightly more tricky as flying creatures are harder to shoot in my opinion. You will have to use your bow for this one. I achieved this by going to the forge tower in the Udun Foothills (the one where you started the game) and trying to shoot the birds flying around the tower. If you run out of arrows, you can fast travel to the tower you are on again to find yourself completely restocked and the birds re-spawned - simples!

    Hunting Challenge 3: Kill 3 Caragors
    Caragors are a bit harder to kill as they may kill you first. The easiest way I find to kill Caragors is to fully charge an arrow from a distance right to the head. You can find Caragors either roaming the wilds OR caged around strongholds.

    Hunting Challenge 4: Kill 4 Mordor Rats
    Mordor rats are small, which is the only issue with this challenge. There is an abundance of them in The Black Gate zone to the north of the map.
