    I got this easily in chapter 3-3, when Josh is driving the speedboat and the majini are following you in boats themselves. I just faced them and kept swinging.

    On the mission 2-1, Train Station, there will be several crossbow guys on top of the crates. Sheva will get distracted by the dogs and manjini on the ground so if you climb up to the crates and jump over to the crossbow guys, she should not notice you.
    Now this is one of the first levels the crossbow guys appear so they will take awhile to shoot you and will often times just stare at you. So what you do is walk up to the crossbow so that when you swing your knife it hits the tip of the crossbow but not the guy. So in other words you are close, but not close enough to hit the zombie. Now just continue swinging your knife and eventually he should shoot and you will deflect the arrow. If it doesn't work the first time, try again it will work eventually. Good luck.

    This one can be challenging with Sheva always shooting the crossbow guys. When there's multiple guys with the bows, just put a good amount of distance between you and them. This allows you to see the arrow coming from a distance and gives you about a second or so to time it just right. Took me a few tries because Sheva kept shooting them all. But when I got to finally take a swing it only took me two tries. Good luck!

    TurboTony19I must be really lucky because i got this one before 1-3 and i didn't even know i had done it until i just checked through my achievement list. I did this with a human team mate so i can see why that would be helpful.

    GnomishNinjaIt took me a couple dozen tries, but I finally got this by standing about 10 ft back from the majini and swinging wildly while my co-op partner stood by to heal me. This was on chapter 2-1.
