This is cumulative across races, the game doesn't seem to register whip kills always. I did get the achievement in the middle of the race.

Wear them down by grinding your wheels on their horses, when they get down to about 10-20% health, come up next to them and keep whipping with left/right triggers.

And whip it, whip it real good!
Aj6627 Of note, this took way more than 5 to have it pop. Not sure if it is just delayed in popping or what, but I was easily at 10-15 whip kills when it finally popped.

Fshguy I was beginning to think it was all 5 in a race before it unlocked. Maybe it doesn't count if you have to restart.

SmactSilly WTF is up with the achievement? I have whip killed like 30 times now and the achievement doesn't increment or register any.

NM, finally unlocked after restarting xbox and playing another round. If this sticks for you, I suggest restarting the xbox and play the first race again. Whip kill one chariot to unlock.

Proscaline Waiting on this last achievement lol. What a shitty game.

Keila It took me way more than 5 kills to get this achievement too but I think it might of been because they don't count if you restart. This finally unlocked at the end of a race for me.

Mobius Evalon The hardest part about this achievement seems to be that it's nearly impossible to tell if the kill was done by ramming or by the whip. The whip only seems to hurt the horses so you have to pull ahead the same as a ram, but the whip has a range only slightly beyond the wheels on the chariot. I'd be willing to bet that all the whip kills we think we got were ram kills.

I8ITackyticsI8I When you say across all races do you mean of one season or over any number of seasons?

EDIT: Don't worry this popped 3 minutes or so after messaging. It is accumulative across seasons and I believe whip kills are only saved upon winning the race. If you lose, I believe the kills are discounted.

iLIKEchicken007 Good solution....main reason for my upvote is the whip it - whip it real good part lol

Sexxy Hard restarting my console definitely worked for me. I looked at my stats and had like 79 kills and had all other achievments, after restarting it unlocked on the very first race

Darth Hawk CZ As of today 29/9/2017 I can confirm dying or losing the match still counts with your whip kills. On my last enemy in third race I unlocked the first, 1 whip kill achievement. Then I was playing the first race, new season, over and over again, trying to get the 1st place without picking up health.

Unlocked for me after killing enemy during a match. This means that progress carries over even if you die/lose, otherwise I wouldn't be able to get it.
