    You will unlock this very early on the game as you are prompted to perform a dodge anyway.

    You can perform a cinematic dodge by tapping LB just as an enemy swings for an attack.

    Got the achievement for 20 cinematic Dodges.

    Finished the game on both Normal and Nightmare.

    Got all the damn collectibles. Every other achievement.

    Not this one. 20-25 hours of playing, hundreds of successful melee & ranged cinematic dodges.

    This achievement and Missed By A Mile are known to be glitchy. I was not able to get this one until later in the game when I kicked out the power and climbed over the ruined fence in Act 1. I was able to get this and Missed By A Mile on the same Taken. Others have had issues doing this on non-throwing Taken.

    After wrecking the car and making your way to the lumber yard, and escaping the mobile home that is pushed into the ravine, kill the two Taken at the gate. Head right and turn left to see the breaker box. Go up to it, kick it, and walk over the fence. A Taken will appear in the distance.

    He will throw something, hit LB and move in any direction. This should be 1. If not then just circle him and when he swings, hit LB. It should unlock. Then do this 19 more times.

    Don't bother with the other non-throwing Taken since the achievement is known to be glitchy on them.

    WeisGuy9I also did not get this during the Prologue where you learn how to dodge. Your solution worked perfectly and I got both achievements using it. Thanks!

    I not only got this achievement while following this guide. I accidentally killed the first guy using the power lines. So I proceeded down the river. 2 enemies spawned. I killed one and used the man with the Scythes to get the next 10 dodges and I got the second achievement.

    After learning how to properly execute a cinematic dodge from the tutorial you'll earn this achievement fairly early. Whenever you get close to a Taken you'll want to time your dodge just right, pressing the LB button away from your enemy to cue a Slow-motion dodge.

    Note: This achievement is known to be somewhat glitchy and may take couple attempts before popping your 15G achievement!
