    A "complete" takedown is when you hold X next to an unaware ennemy (on the same level or from a ledge, as long as you hold X you're good).
    It'll start a X button smashing "minigame" (?) while Evie is kicking the shit out of her prey.
    When the button prompt stops and Evie is high-kicking the poor dude's face, that's 1 takedown out of 30.

    There's a challenge asking you to do it 40 times so you'll have an easy way to know what's remaining as it's showing a counter everytime you're doing one.

    You'll do quite a few in the main missions and also to work toward the 200 scared but if you're not done by the time you have everything else completed you can just roam around London and beat any ennemy you'll encounter.

    DemontoothIf there's no internal save to remove just go offline and start a new game.

    Tecstar70This didn't unlock for a while, so i started making sure I backed out of the game fully each time I played and then I noticed it had popped, but no notification.

    AVidalBAchivement tracker glitched at 96%, not being able to unlock it. Does anyone have an updated solution for this? Looking into completing all AC games.

    CasyleBrutal, Are You Scared Yet, and New Terror in Whitechapel didn't pop for me, and weren't updating. Had to delete my save and go offline to avoid sync, played through the first section with Jacob, then quit out as Evie, went back online, and started the dlc. Then everything started tracking correctly again and they all popped within' minutes.

    AVidalBHad it glitched at 96%, and just fixed it. I uninstalled the game, reinstalled it and deleted my save file (both local & clud save). I started a new game, and as soon as I got control of Jacob, went back to the title screen so I could immediately start Jack the Ripper's DLC. On my first, scripted brutal takedown (after a few seconds of chasing Jacob you will encounter a guard), it finally popped. Hope this helps.

    WannagoflexDidn't have to reinstall, deleting local & cloud save files did it for me
