    Chapter 2

    Before you can use a Fountain Pen as a weapon you have to buy the upgrade in the Black Market.

    After you got the upgrade, go back upstairs from the black market and into the building above it.

    One of the rooms on the second floor has the Fountain Pen next to the bed. Pick it up and use it on an enemy to get the "Mightier Than The Sword" achievement.

    Lyco499For some reason this didn't pop for me on my first try, but awesomely the guard I killed was in the little guard station directly outside the apartment building in the video. Well on the little desk in there was another pen, so I was able to use that on the guard that was killed in the video and it popped that time.

    Or1g1nal S1nn3rStrange. I did this on an unconscious guard, reloaded the save and did it on a standing guard (insta-killed him) and the achievement didn't pop. This was immediately after I picked up the fountain pen. It eventually popped randomly after I shot a wolfhound in the head with it.

    I did this on Chapter 3 during the bank heist having already purchased the Makeshift Bolt upgrade (500 coins) from the Black Market

    Having decided to go through the roof and use the poppy tincture (available to purchase/steal from the Black Market or win at the auction across the street) to knock everyone out asleep, I found a fountain pen on the desk at the southern end of the eastern room on the top floor of the bank. I shot the Voltaic Gun at a sofa in there to empty it, picked up the fountain pen, and shot a sleeping guard in the head.
