    Sequence 4 Memory 2 is a popular one for some of the other achievements, and it works well for this one, too. Jacob starts on the roof of a building across the street from the distillery. There are a bunch of enemies around the front of the distillery. You can shoot a line across to the distillery roof and assassinate any of those guys from the zipline. Afterwards, zip up to the top of either building, and repeat. If you run out of guys to kill, just reload the checkpoint and start again. Also, dying isn't a problem because it'll just put you back to that same checkpoint.

    This one will go a bit faster if you try to assassinate two targets each time from the zipline. Just watch for the groups of enemies walking around together.

    I got this as early as in sequence 3 memory 2: freedom of the press you get a short tutorial on how to grapple up buildings. After that you have to make your way to the first fuse as part of your objective at a clock tower, grapple up to where you have to install the first fuse and look over the edge in front of it and there should be two guards down below, one will just stand still while another walks back and forth every so often. Now try to aim the grapple on the pointy pillar structures just slightly to the right of them and use it to travel down the building and then try to get it so you can highlight and Assassinate the guard standing still while you are hanging on it, then just wait till you are in range with both of them while hanging and that both are highlighted then Assassinate them, now just reload the checkpoint and repeat the process until you have the achievement.
