    To be able to recruit 5 gang members to follow you around, you need the Leadership III skill. For this, you need to reach Level 5.

    Level 2 - Leadership I (unlocks automatically)
    Level 3 - Leadership II (unlocks automatically)
    Level 5 - Leadership III (unlocks automatically)

    It takes 1000 XP to gain 1 skill point. It takes increasing amounts of spent skill points to gain levels.

    After level 5, walk around and find allies to recruit. Your own territory will have more allies walking around than enemy territory. They wear green uniforms and show as green dots on map/minimap, and green highlights during Eagle Vision. Simply press cn_RB when you're close enough to 5 different allies to make them follow you. Once you have 5 followers at the same time, achievement!

    I checked a video on Youtube about the skill tree. Leadership I seems to unlock through story progression and doesn't cost skill points.

    TheDude722Cool. I didn't want to start a new game to go back and find out. Was hoping someone else who recently did that part could tell me. I'll edit the text.

    This can easily be completed at the beginning of sequence 6 memory 1 "A Case of Identity", if you are having difficulty finding 5 members to recruit in free roam.

    Your guide fails to explain the most important part. Jacob and Evie need to reach Lv.5 to unlock the Leadership III skill or they cannot recruit 5 allies; in other words, it is not story-related.
