    The tutorials that appear right before you grab your gear are informative to this achievement. You can read them later in the pause menu or read about it here so don't worry about missing them.

    This works like a kill streak. You have to kill 4 enemies in a row without being detected. This includes putting enemies on alert without having them see you. Any stealth kill will work so I recommend finding silenced weapons that are scattered along the route. Throwing knives are also good but often Chain Take Downs are the way to go.

    Your streak is lost when you die or when you are detected. Each step in the streak gets you a perk activated. The first one is quicker movement when crouched. To see how many steps you've done in the chain, checkout the 4 circles above your crouch symbol in the bottom right of the screen.

    It's fully cumulative so if you kill 5 guys in a row so it IS possible to do this in only 29 kills. However everytime the streak resets it will require another 4 to build it back up.

    as tricky as it sounds, getting 29 stealth kills in a row is pretty easy. i got this right at the start of the game, you'll be able to get the 4 kills to start the streak with the 2 groups of 2 right at the beginning, from then you can get 25 stealth kills

    moving a bit forward, you'll get a pop up saying a commander is nearby, he is inside a building with 4 soldiers surrounding him, if you lure out the soldiers throwing rocks and take them out 1 by 1, the commander will flee but don't worry about him. this will trigger a good few soldiers to converge on the building in small groups, make use of the binoculars to scout and track the movement. use rocks to distract them if needed and continue to take them out

    took me max 25/30 minutes

    - Once you get 4 stealth kills in-a-row you will have all 4 tokens active.

    - Every kill after that (as long as you stay unnoticed) will count toward the achievement

    - You can try to get all 25 in-a-row but if you do get noticed just get 4 more stealth kills and every one after that will continue to progress your cheevo

    - Making noise is okay too, like you can shoot an enemy to death with an unsilenced weapon and turn around and quickly shoot his homie and you will still be in stealth so don't think you have to be completely quite
