    During the second mission you will come to a section where you can choose to control either flying drones or ground drones. Choose the flying one (Talon). After this you will have to fly the Talon through a large room to destroy a generator. There are loads of enemies in the room kill them all before the generator. play on recruit to make this easier.

    firstly, if you replay mission 2 you have to unlock the control "remote hijack" ability at the cyber core station in your safehouse. If you play mission 2 the first time, you have this ability automatically.

    Before you start (replay) mission 2 on recruit, make sure you have equip the "remote hijack" ability. Shortly after the beginning your partner use a talon, there is the point for the achievement. Use another talon with your core ability and fly right side to the door and kill 20 enemies here.


    if you do this here, you also unlock this achievement within

    Doable during the second mission : The Talon sequence is story relarted, you can not miss it. You just have to be carrefull and dont be killed before you score your 20 kills.

    During Mission 2: New World, you'll come to a part where they tell you to remote hijack a talon. All you need to do is hijack it then kill 20 enemies with it, unlocking both achievements.


    ALL CREDIT FOR THIS GOES TO MAKA91 HE MADE THE GUIDE BUT ASKED ME TO POST IT SINCE HE PLAYED A PS4 COPY OF THE GAME.

    NB. This is the solution for anyone trying to unlock the achievement on a second run through of the Campaign, and not able to select the Control Cybercore which is needed for the remote hijack.

    I have found a solution to this problem. I was trying to get the achievement for 20 kills with the Talon, and it wasn't letting me select my cybercore in the Deploy room. So it must have saved if from when I did another mission.

    The solution:
    1 - Select to play Mission 3.

    2 - In the Safehouse obviously make sure you have the Remote Hijack unlocked by checking your cyber cores.

    3 - Go to the Deploy mission room where it will ask you to choose your load out. For some reason on mission 3 it suddenly shows the option to choose your cyber core. Pick the control core, and then back out.

    4 - Then go to the Mission Record Vault, should be to the right of the door. Open that up then press the RB to jump to the select mission tab. Select Mission 2 - New World. Then go back to Deploy and start the mission.

    Problem solved guys! Btw, just a heads up. Im not sure its because I'm playing through for a second time but I had to pick a one of the Talons mounted, not Diaz's drone which I saw from the video. You basically just make sure you've selected the Remote Hijack core using the Dpad and right stick. Then just point at a Talan and once use see the red box lock on you release and your in.

    Enjoy!
