    As the achievement states, you'll need a Professional Hitman. the amateur hitman doesn't work.

    you can randomly find one while roaming around or you can get it by turning the Nine Elms district into defiant state. (finish all the red icon missions and the mission that unlocks after)
    simply switch to the hitman and sneak up on enemies and press X to perform the stealth takedown. repeat 5 times.

    EDIT: the takedown must be the done while un-armed and with the hitman wire tool.

    Hirsute DaveThey do have to be unarmed though - having a weapon drawn will do an execute/takedown move with the gun instead.

    Xtreme Jam 87I've done more than 5 with fibre wire using a Professional Hitman and it is not unlocking for me :(

    EDIT: Nevermind, I did one more takedown and the achievement popped. Was about 8-9 for me :S

    logicslayerDefinitely required more than 5 for me, seems glitched, but not horribly.

    AndylangersI've done loads of these and just will not pop for me

    EDIT: eventually popped randomly after I did some non-wire takedowns on just random people in the street

    MachairaIt popped for me without doing wire takedowns. The last guard I ran up to, kneed in the gut and took him down and it popped. I believe it was only 5 that I had to take out.

    Faustus PHDFor anyone else that has trouble with this popping, I quit the game after doing about 30 of the wire takedowns, and when I loaded back in, the first wire takedowns unlocked it. Thanks for the guide.
