    This is done by using cn_down to throw a rock. When you find a group on enemies preferable in any outpost you haven't taken yet, sneak up on them while remaining undetected and used cn_down (down on the d-pad) to throw a rock and distract them. Do this to 15 different enemies and the achievement will pop.

    SIDE NOTE: sometimes it does not register when you distract an enemy and I found it not to work on enemies that have detected me and then I waited for them to "lose sight" of me.

    DOUBLE SIDE NOTE: If you are having problems with it registering, try spamming cn_down over and over until you either hear a "huh" / "what was that" or see the enemy start to look around then check to see if it counted. I would sit in one spot near a group of guards and just spam cn_down for a solid 30 seconds and then check the achievement tracker and it always seemed to work.

    A Gas RatI found this seemed to track better when I repeatedly hit the enemies with the rocks. It got to the point that I would just throw rocks instead of using weapons any time I seen an enemy.

    RunWithScienceJust figured it out. You need to throw a rock close enough to an enemy that has NOT seen you at all. Not even the beginning of the white detection bar. You should be able to successfully distract an enemy about twice (doesn't give you two distractions on the tracker, just two times to ensure it registers).

    Throw a rock and WAIT until the enemy goes to inspect it and then returns to his original position. This worked evwrytime for me after my progress bar was stuck.

    Best of luck.

    elderdragonlordGood spot. Copperhead rail yard John’s region. Approach building on left with ladders. Shot guy on top. There are 2 guys in building , one by front and another at rear. Mark them with binocs so you can see where they move. Position yourself by holes in roof above them, throw rock to one then move to other. Fast travel to nearby point and return. Repeat process. Works very well and can be done in one spot

    Press cn_down to throw a Rock or Hold cn_down to throw a Can while driving or being still in a vehicle, when you find a enemy/enemies get out your Binoculars by Pressing cn_up to tag them, sneak up on them from a distance, throw a Rock, make sure they go back to there spot for each distraction to count (A lot of enemies just stand guard or they walk back & forth from spot to spot) do this 15 times to get the Achievement.

    - As long as the enemy has not noticed you (a red indicator will show up on the top of your screen) just throw a rock near them cn_down to get progress.
