    This achievement requires you to kill an enemy from over 70m with a bow.

    The way I did this was waited until I got the ability to craft explosive arrows (crafted with 1 grenade). Once I had that, I went to go look for an outpost where I could get a decent shot on someone.

    I'm sure you can do this earlier, but I did it when I had access to the second island and did it while attacking the Harmanse Gas and Repair outpost. Before you head here, make sure you have the marksman scope for your bow (so you can follow my reference point easier) and SAVE YOUR GAME. Just on the outskirts of the outpost is a massive hill with a relic on it, located here:

    Go up to the top of this hill (and grab the relic to get closer to the 60 you need for the achievement), then position yourself on the cliff looking towards the outpost. In front and to the left, you should see a sniper in a sniper tower.

    Now equip the explosive arrows and aim at the tower. Aim straight at the tower then look up until the 100m line on the scope is lined up with the very top of the mountain to your right. Shoot the arrow and it should kill him, netting your achievement. If you miss, just adjust accordingly and keep shooting until you run out of arrows. When you do, just reload your save and try again. If you've already done all the outposts, you can reset them from the main menu.

    EliteAssassin13Great guide!! Im too impatient so i found a great spot early in the game. During the mission The Medusa's Call, the first enemy you come across (entering from West) is set up perfectly to get this. He's alone, under a massive rock archway and doesnt move, except to crouch periodically. If you alert him by missing, restarting the mission places you a few meters away. I placed a waypoint near him, so i knew the exact distance.

    This is most easily done using the EXPLOSIVE Arrow which is unlocked approximately 15 missions into the game. They will be available in the crafting menu, and will require a grenade to make. Make sure to equip them to a d-pad slot so you can select them. Now, just find an enemy, use your waypoint system to ensure their distance is at over 70m+, and kill them with the explosion.

    If you've beaten the game, enemies will permanently spawn at X: 360 & Y: 700, so go here if you're struggling to anyone.

    - Buy the "Marksman Scope" attachment for the bow

    - Craft "Explove Arrows" using grenades and arrows (big surprise)

    - Overlook an outpost, make the outpost a waypoint so you can see how far away you are.

    - Fire at the enemies using the scope to judge distance
