    I tried the other video in the guide, as well as a couple of others on YouTube and couldn't quite get them to work. Here I noticed this would be a perfect place and got it first go without any problems, so just wanted to share the spot with others.

    In the story this is immediately after you get the Broadhead Climbing Arrows. If you are past that point then fast travel to the Copper Mill Bridge camp in the Soviet Installation area. Use the climbing arrows to climb up the red wall just right of the camp, you'll then be able to walk up a small ramp and use a zipline which will take you to a small platform with a further zipline down. This is the zipline you'll be using, as you get close to the end be prepared to hit cn_B and aim yourself towards the third and final zipline. This should unlock as you slide down.

    I'm sorry in advance that the video isn't longer, and starts while I was already on the zipline, but the GameDVR decided that today wasn't the day it was going to let me record a longer clip.

    Dexter XBAThanks, it worked on my 2nd attempt. I think I pressed cn_B too late at first.

    Likewise....just going through the set of lines down the cablecar section popped it for me without any interaction.

    Not sure why all the other solutions are long winded. But after completing the game teleport to the Threshold of Kitezh base camp, located in THE LOST CITY. Right Infront of you is a zip line, go down this and right at the end press B to land on the next one. Easy as that.

    Another place to get this is when you get to the lost city and have to use the trebuchet to break the gate...there is a zip line from it you can use and then drop from it to the one below.

    MartyOYou can use the zip line immediately at the start of the Base camp (Threshold of Kitezh). Just hit B immediately before you get to the second zip line - worked first try for me.

    Another easy place is during the Baba Yaga DLC. You can do it either during or after the final fight. Obviously it is easier after the fight. There is a ledge, that can be used to jump to the second level of moving platforms. The zipline is on the right side and at the end of the first one is another one, that continues in the same direction, so you don't have to position yourself, just hit B, when you are at the end of the first one.
