    First, in multiplayer, go to the outfitter and select Red Harlow as your character. For this achievement you do need to kill real players, NPC kills won't count. You can do this on free roam, but I'd recommend doing it in Legends and Killers Free for All Matches. There are boxes that refill your deadeye that should be always used, and plenty of enemies to get kills from.

    Since in my opinion deadeye is the best way to kill enemies anyway if you got a slow, powerful weapon, boosting this is in my opinion unnecessary - you'll get this in the course of a few matches, which you'd probably do anyway. Just remember to play as Red :)

    Important to note for boosting all these achievements, next to starting private matches with friends:
    Only the person wanting the achievement needs the DLC. Your friends
    can still play with you and your achievements are unlockable playing on the original maps.

    Also, unlike the 'Hail Mary' achievement, NPC kills do not count. Either in Free Roam or PVP matches, make sure you're killing other players.

    AaronomyI've been playing as Red for months now, and have well over 25 kills with Deadeye (in both Free Roam and matches), Any idea what the issue might be?

    There is one important fact that noone mentioned. You can NOT get this achievement If you and your targets are in the same posse. There will be no "red X" and it wil NOT COUNT.
