    If you have any additional information or other locations for the Legendary Marksman Achievement, PLZ post it in the comments and I will update the guide.

    UPDATE #1:

    *It's possible to use the standard Rifle Scope.

    UPDATE #2:

    (Requires the Medved-Taiga DLC!!!)

    The best location to get the Legendary Marksman Achievement is in Medved-Taiga National Park, Dikiy Coast.
    The northern riverbank stretches for more than 5km from the Dikiy Coast to Zverolova Hill with many opportunities for the Achievement.

    Dikiy Coast & Zverolova Hill Riverbank is the easiest location to gain the Achievement.

    Hope it helps toast

    BIGELK55 I just got the achievement today in the Bohndorf area that HellCreeper666 mentioned. Leave the outpost about 8:00 a.m. and head towards the lake. You will want to be on the west side of the lake up on the hillside looking down towards the Need Zone.
    Find yourself a spot that will be at least 400 meters from the Need zone. There are only a few spots where you can see the Need zone at that distance and most of them you will be looking between trees that are fairly close together.
    The first time I tried this I headed right to the Need zone but it took me to the right side of the lake. The deer showed up around 9:00 but they were too close and I ran into a bunch of wild boars instead and ended up scaring the deer away.
    I went back to the outpost and rested until 8:00 A.M. again but this time I made sure I stayed to the left or west side of the lake. I found a spot that was 413 meters away and waited for awhile but got impatient and wandered off to the left for awhile chasing a Red Fox to complete a mission. I spotted one lone Roe deer and a bunch of wild boar that were resting but they were all under 350 meters. When I got back to my spot sometime between 9:00 and 10:00 A.M. I spotted two Red deer bucks and about six or seven does at the Need zone.
    I really lucked out because one buck was on top and six does were lined up below him all in line. I did not know how far my bullet would drop but knew that if I aimed at the buck and my bullet was low I would still hit one of the does. Sure enough the achievement popped. The Need zone will be right next to the shoreline of the lake near a sandy beach.
