    All 4 of these enemies are conveniently available in Act IV Chapter 1. I recommend playing on Beginner difficulty if you just want to get this out of the way.

    EDIT: Video courtesy of Ham Man 89

    In the following order:

    1) You will encounter the Warden in the room where you have to deploy the beacon to kill the Swarmak. Be sure to leave some Swarm alive around here so the Warden has something to kill. You'll have to shoot of his helmet before you can ask Jack to hijack him.

    2) The Stump is in an open area you have to clear of enemies before making your way to Paduk. Just hijack immediately when you see it, and there should be enough enemies around for it to kill.

    3) The Pouncer is pretty hard to miss, you'll find it right in the area where Paduk is. Just look over the edge where it jumps down and hijack it. These things are pretty aggressive at finding a target and will usually kill an enemy in one hit.

    4) The Elite Hunter are those annoying things that cloak and fire Torque Bows. Once you get to Paduk, there'll be a brief pause and you will defend the area from these guys. They might take a little while to get a kill since they have to charge up their weapon while flinching from getting shot at, but it should happen eventually. If it doesn't, just reload the checkpoint so you don't have to wait for the ability to recharge.

    There is achievement tracking for these, and it should go up by 25% for each. There was an issue with tracking due to server issues, but I booted up the game today and it popped on the main menu.

    DrSchlepensteinThis achievement is still glitchy and hasn't unlocked for me yet, but I will keep trying.

    So far, the stump you hijack at the beginning still counts, as my achievement tracker went up by 25%, then I got an Elite Hunter in the area of Act 3 when you are building the rockets nose cone, so my tracker went up to 50%. But then when I went to the Turnable in Act 3, and encountered the Warden, I hijacked it and it killed 3 of Juvies, my tracker didn't move at all. Then when I got to the Bridge controls and encountered a Pouncer, I hijacked that and it killed 5 different Imagos, my tracker still didn't move and is still stuck at 50%.

    jacoozaI finished the campaign, without unlocking the achievement.
    Then I tried to load the act but the bot was without abilities, without components...
    I thought that was possible to re-play any mission with the bot without losing all the upgrades, i made a mistake?

    Thanks for the answers...

    Delta748That doesn't seem right, Hijack is a base ability that you can't miss getting in Act 3. You don't need to upgrade it to be able to get this achievement.

    If you're saying that no abilities are available to you at all, that sounds like a weird bug.

    Must get a KILL w/ each of the 4 required Hijacked enemies, check progress to make sure

    - Does NOT need to be done in one play-through

    - You can get all 4 by Act 3 Chapter 3. There are more throughout the campaign however so keep that in mind.

    Here's a demonstration along with the 4 earliest spots to find these enemies after unlocking "Hijack" in Act 3 Chapter 1:

    (0:21) STUMP - Immediately after unlocking the ability, also near end of Act 3 CH 3
    (1:38) WARDEN - Act 3 CH 2 while waiting for Jack to open a welded door, reload checkpoint if necessary
    (2:40) POUNCER - Lots of these throughout the rest of the campaign. Act 3 CH 2 has one however if your looking for early Pouncers
    (3:14) ELITE HUNTER - Act 3 CH 3 "City Ruins" you face lots of these at one time, great spot.
