    This video was made in the following memory: Sequence 4 Memory 2.

    Make use of the whistle ability(cn_down) to lure the enemies to the haystack.

    A great tip from martsmall; "If you manage to kill a few then restart checkpoint it also counts them no need to get them in 1 go"

    Good Luck!

    BrutexCHieftainthe discription is killing 5 enemies from the SAME haystack. that is maybe the reason some of you arent getting it. I dont thing the reload methode works.

    TheOnlyMattoeviloverlord - ive had this problem with multiple games. if it says its unlocked it should pop randomly or just appear with the points. i dislike it very much

    Works great in Sequence 6 - Memory 2. At the very start of this mission you must investigate 3 weapon crates. Go to the middle one. You'll find a haystack here, jump in from the building above. Two guards are standing by the haystack. Another will walk past it after half a minute. The last two enemies are patrolling the area, whistle to lure them to you. If you are unable to get five in one go, the achievement is cumulative and will count any kills you make, even if you reload the memory over and over.

    not so much a solution but a great tip! you dont need to get all 5 without leaving the haystack it just needs to be in the same one, i killed 3 from within the haystack then hopped out of it and lured 2 more over and jumped back in, assassinated them both and achievement unlocked!clap
