    Hightower Coal is a good place to get this achievement, but I think I've discovered a much better place.

    I found that it's easier to shot back to enemies equiped with rifles (those that appear with the symbol of a target above their heads). They are much slower aiming than the regular ones, so we have more time to tap cn_Y two times. And it's even better if we get close to them.

    Buckingham Palace's roof has four guards equiped with long firearms, and there's another one inside de palace in a room with a balcony. Furthermore, there's a fast travel point on the roof of the palace, so once we have killed the five guards, we can fast travel again and they'll be respawned.

    Good luck!

    Edit: Jamiereloaded23 stated that with the weakest pistol we can shoot the guards more than once before killing them, so we'll manage to get more countershots before we need to fast travel to get the guards respawned. Thanks to him.

    Edit2: As BombasticGinger said, "if you are too far away, the game doesn't seem to register countershots. If you walk forward until your target gets outlined in white, then countershots will work/happen (you don't lose ammo when it works)".

    AchieveSaintThanks so much, this was so quick and I hadn't known before how to make sure they count using the white outline.

    A very good Spot for this is a Place at one of the Child Liberation Mission: Hightower Coal (you can replay them from your Progress Tracker). Run guns blazing to the Spot and then simply double tap the cn_Y Button if it's shown above your head, you then will dodge the bullet and shoot back (or just shoot the enemie that have the red marker over there head) - this works with your Firearm and your throwing knives.

    If you are out of enemies, just move outside the Memory and it will restart automatically

    MattricusIt was the being close enough part that was not doing it for me too! You have to be close enough that the player draws their weapon.

    Warboy925Awesome guide per usual King!!! Went from 12% - done in less then a half hour!! Plus one from me!!!

    Edit: The one thing I do love about the new Dashboard update is the achievement tracker, nice little black box at the bottom right hand side instead of filling 1/8 of the right side of the TV screen.........

    Here is a quick and easy way to get this achievement, any time, any place. Using this method you will also complete the COUNTERSHOT perk (shoot enemies before they shoot at you twice within ten seconds 25 times) at the same time, which will count towards
    Assassin's Creed SyndicateMultitalentedThe Multitalented achievement in Assassin's Creed Syndicate worth 18 pointsAcquire ten Perks.

    Find a high level enemy with a rifle that is on their own (such as on top of Buckingham Palace, Westminster). Equip the level 1 Derringer Pistol and move near them, but not too close. You can tell if you are too far away, because apart from it not counting towards the achievement, you will only dodge the shot rather than shoot at them. As they get ready to fire you will be prompted to press cn_Y, which you only need to press once. You will shoot at them and they will miss and reload and begin to fire again within 10 seconds. Your pistol won't damage them much, so you should be able to just stand there and get about 6 countershots before you kill them.

    I completed this before finishing Sequence 3, and yet to my surprise it has the second highest TA ratio in the game, so hopefully this solution will help a few people out.

    creeping monteWhether i aim first or try double tapping Y my progress doesn't always count. I've killed hundreds trying for this yet my counter ha?s only gone from 64% to 72%. What could be the stipulation
