Oh A Piece Of Candy (Distract 30 KPA from their guard posts in yellow zone without being detected.)

Ashgate Yellow Zone

Hello everyone. In this video you will see that this achievement is 100% farmable on a single guard while knowing exactly what needs to happen in order to successfully distract a KPA officer and have it count towards your achievement progress. Also, the best thing to do is to snap your achievement app to the right side and then click into this achievement, move it to the top of the list and press B once so you can always keep an eye on the progress bar.

So we are starting up north by the only Market Stall in the area so that is probably the best landmark I could use as a starting point. You will see me move to a pile of bricks and the best part about this is that we have an infinite supply of bricks unlike the other 3 spawns nearby.

My first distraction is just to show you exactly what to look for. So I ran up to the street level and just below we see our mark. I tossed a brick to the right side of the planter, he investigates it and eventually makes his way back to his post. Your Progress Bar should fill up just as he reaches the red door, right before he does his 90 degrees turn to the left and begins to stand still.

So after the detailed attempt you will begin to see me take the underpass route multiple times and you will also see that there is no need to crouch or worry about those traitors who are constantly walking by and talking trash. Each time I get to the spot you will see me aim higher up on the black line where the 1st and 2nd security fence connect. Aim there, let your brick ricochet off the wall, to the planter and then skim on the ground. The KPA guard will then walk passed the planter, look around and then return to his post. I always begin to run back for another brick the moment I see my achievement progress bar go up.

This achievement is a little picky and with this method I tend to get it to count 9 times out of 10 if for some reason he doesn't walk far enough to investigate, it simply would not count.

I also tried a faster method of throwing the brick and running back for another brick as soon as I saw him moving but I never got them to count. My guess is that he instantly resets into his original position the moment I exited the underpass. You would notice spawn resets right at the start of the video. If you were to keep going straight instead of going left for the bricks you would see an opportunity to rescue a civilian from a KPA guard. These tend to reset every time I would run back to the market stall.

There is also a big Heavy KPA just across the street who also happens to be guarding a door. That guy just flat out sucks. I only ever got him to count once out of 12 attempts. He walks pretty far away from his door, gets back and nothing.

The Ashgate Yellow zone solutions seem to be glitched from the latest patch so I tried Earlston Yellow zone which is the first yellow zone you reach outside the tutorial missions. Go forward once you arrive and to the left next to the Willows building will be a lookout tower with a KPA inside. Below him to the right will be a KPA soldier standing guard by a door. Bricks in this area don't seem to disappear like in Ashgate so feel free to toss them at the wall between both soldiers to get 2 at a time. The fastest way to do this if brick throwing isn't one of your favorite past times is to hide behind the sheetmetal wall in front of the door guard and keep standing and crouching. Don't go too fast, just long enough for the meter to appear then crouch until its gone and repeat. (Thanks to Draco719 for finding out the crouch method).
