    All three of these targets are encountered during the main story line of “The Hidden Ones” DLC and can’t be missed.

    Tacito can be found at the Quarry during the main quest “Where the Slaves Die”

    Ampelius can be found at the Walls-of-the-Ruler during the main quest “The Walls of the Ruler” and is disguised as a Captain/Commander. Senu won’t be able to locate him for you. Additionally, completing this entire location (i.e. killing the other Captains and Commander and locating all 6 Treausres), pops the Achievement “Walls of the Ruler”

    Ptahmose can be found during main quest “The Setting Sun”

    pukem0nnIt’s April 2020 and this achievement is still glitched and not unlocking...

    CrimsonCreamzI'm late but I can confirm NG+ worked for me, this time I assassinated them properly with hidden blade and got the achievement right after killing the 3rd target. On my first play through I killed them with my bow and sword so maybe that's the problem? I'm not sure but I'm glad I unlocked it on NG+.

    Boris l3Same here. I did use sleeping darts (Walls of the Ruler castle) to put Ampelius out. Thankfully, the rebels took down half his health too before I zonked him/her, making the assassination easier (though it may not've been necessary). Think Ubisoft may have nurfed the achievement, otherwise the assassination would've been too hard. Take down all the captains and commander first and then Ampelius should be the last. I reloaded quest a couple of times too.

    LittleBlueTrollI I just unlocked this, no issues as of this time for me. I used a bow for 2 and my sword for one.

    KylespudSo after reading all the comments on this, i was was worried i would have issues with this achievement. I have just unlocked this first time without doing anything special.
    Out of the 3 targets i only assassinated one of them. The other 2 i killed with my sword.

    After killing the final target i didn't unlock the achievement, it was only after i had completed the mission that the cheevo popped.

    I know this doesn't help anyone who has done the DLC and not go the achievement for it, however for the people who are trying it for the first time you just need to kill the 3 targets and complete the mission.
