This is a long and grindy achievement that you will earn or at least get pretty close to earning if you are working on completing all achievements in the game. Each chapter gives you 2-4 battle scenarios with associated quest chain, and if you aren't farming kills you will probably earn 800-1.4k kills per scenario. That means a lot of scenarios to get this achievement!

The upside is that you have to do a lot of scenarios to get the "Extensive Knowledge" achievement for having all battle entries in the Encyclopedia. However, if you start grinding that by dashing from quest objective to quest objective, you won't run very high kill counts or make a lot of progress towards this achievement. If you're trying to get done with the game efficiently, I recommend adjusting your strategy slightly.

Dashing away from quest objectives too quickly can cause them not to complete/advance properly. Every quest has an active area on your minimap that highlights in yellow. When you complete a quest objective, you need to remain within that yellow highlighted area until the game recognizes you have completed the objective (eg if you run away/fast travel immediately, you may not get credit for your action until you occur). The main way this can be problematic is that 'events/alerts/officer conversation lines' queue up sequentially. Every objective has multiple lines of dialogue/messages as you complete it (Officer: I cant believe I lost! Officer2: Good job everyone! You captured the base! Discovered the base's supplies! etc, etc). These happen in order as they are triggered, and you can get a fair backlog of them.

If you are still in the last event's conversational backlog and complete a new event, you have to stick around in the yellow area until the dialogue lines for your new task begin (Officer: I cant believe I lost.., etc).

How does this relate to this achievement? Even if you are rushing through objectives, slow down and kill some guys after you complete each objective to farm kills for this achievement. It will keep your quests progressing better and ensure you progress more regularly towards this achievement and aren't forced to later farm kills in order to get to 100,000 after you've completed the other achievements.

You will know when to move on when the enemies in the area you are completing stop being hostile: their health bars will change from red to grey and they will fall down and then get up and start running away. This happens to any soldiers' whose commander is defeated and they retreat off the battlefield. That transition will happen when you complete defeat the commander/capture the base objectives (which are all the objectives).

Using that conversational dead time to farm up an extra 20-30-40 kills each time will make a substantial impact in how long it takes you to earn this achievement. After that, it's just grinding out the game.

If you complete everything and still need to farm kills, enter the Wei Battle of Chi Bi scenario. During the first quest scenario of that chapter, there are huge lines of Wu archers along the south bank of the river. These archers are clustered 5 deep and stretch along a line over 1000 meters long. You can spam your AOE attacks from one end to the other for a hundreds of kills pretty quickly if you do both lines.

This will also get you a cubic ton of arrow items (far more than you can ever collect), which can be handy if you are trying to farm the 1,000 KOs with your bow achievement.

Hi there,
If you like me only doing the main quest and try to get the achievements ASAP. Then this achievement should be the most annoying one. Here is a farming method for killing 100,000 people in the game. This method original posted on a Chinese PS4 forum but I think it is the best method by far so I want to share this method and hope this method can save you guys some time. (I use this method from 46,000 kill and reach to 100,000 kill within 4 hours, you at least can kill 4000 people per run under 15 minutes, so it will get you 12,000 kill per hour at least)

Set up:
①:Choose the free mode and select "Lv Ling Qi"(吕玲绮) as your character, we choose the chapter 6 of Wei to start with. (Also set the difficulty to Beginner)
②: Equip four "Fine Feathered Belt" as your accessories and put six "Azure Dragon Gem" on your weapon.( If you do not have enough coins to buy this you can use fishing method to earn coins very easily, there are many videos on youtube shown you how to do this)

Road Map:
First skip all the cutscenes and when we can move accept two optional quest called "Coping with Seasickness" and "Naval Training". Then fast travel to "Mai Castle East Village" and talk to the doctor to finish the first mission. Next go to the nearest dock to kill 5 Hooligan to finish the second mission.( You do not need to kill "Gan Ning" during the second mission). Then came back to Jiangling and talk to the soldiers to complete the mission.

Next we need to talk to "Cao Cao" to complete the main quest and then the farming start.
Go through the route from the picture and there are 3 routes to go. You can get more information and how to kill from the video I made. So you just need to press cn_RB
+cn_X and the keep hitting cn_X to do the dash move then repeat this until you get 100% Musou then press cn_B to do the fancy move.

After you kill the last guy you need to save and then quit to the main menu and redo this until you get 100,000 kill then the achievement is yours!
Here is my video:

If you do not want to use female character then you can use "Zhu Ran" as well. Everything are the same and I will upload a quick video to show how to use "Zhu Ran" to do this in the future.

If you have any problems or questions just leave a comment and I will response ASAP.
