In order to earn this achievement, you must earn Five streaks of Five kills in PVP in Elimination or Skirmish, the two deathmatch modes. The five streaks can be done in multiple matches but you must do 5 kills in one match without dying to progress on this cheevo. This means you CANNOT earn this in the following:

-Player vs AI
-Dominion or Brawl modes

It takes a lot of practice and a little bit of luck, because if you happen to be ganged up on, you're as good as dead. It's also worth noting that they must be kills, and CANNOT be assists. Unfortunately they show up as Takedowns on leaderboards, so just track it through the Achievement tracker and make sure it comes up "Your gamertag killed opponent" on the bottom left screen, otherwise it won't count. My advice would be to:

-Always attempt this in Skirmish. Elimination rounds were too short to me, and you can be partnered against a skilled player who may take you out. You can set a preferred match type in the menu and although not 100%, you can often get put straight into Skirmish
-If you start to take damage, run to the hills. If you look in the minimap icon in the corner, you can see icons which give boosts. Look for a health icon, but make sure it is white and not hollowed otherwise it'll be useless. Other players may give chase, just utilise sprint and dodge to avoid them.
-Character choice will make the difference, and make sure you upgrade your gear, level up your character a bit and find the best one for you. Nothing is worse than going into a battle with an underequipped character who you're unsure how to use.
-Make sure you learn the combat system, if you aren't blocking, parrying and countering properly then human players will make mince meat out of you.
-You can also vote for a map after every match and you can vote for a skirmish match to ensure you get that mode.

It took me a few games to earn this legitimately, so patience and perseverance is needed. I'm not sure if it's boostable, but if so then I recommend you find other players to do it.

Thanks to iVale and RagingXero for offering extra tips which Ive added to the guide
CPCrookedManDumb question perhaps, but do these five kill streaks all need to be done in a single match? I would assume not.

SteadySphereNo they dont thankfully, would have lost all hope if so laugh

BeatstersJust wanted to make a note that kills aren't the same as takedowns. The score screen cn_back tracks takedowns, which includes both kills and kill assists. For this achievement make sure you're getting killing blows and watch the chat feed to see if you got credited the kill or not.

MyFxxingTeamI have KDa of 11.58 so it was easy for me

SteadySphereHave added both points about whether it needs to be in a single match and making sure they are kills and not assists, cheers for the feedback smile

iVaLeIt's also worth noting, at the end of a match on the ready screen where you deal with the war assets, you can vote on the next map and mode. Most people don't vote so it's easy to repeat Skirmish which is hands down, the easiest mode to get this achievement.

SteadySphereAdded that, I remember utilising that but didnt mention it in the guide laugh

Tronzilla91Just got this tonight. it took me about 2 hours altogether. I did all mine with kensei in elimination. Play smart and use the power-ups to your advantage. I was level 7 when I got my first streak of 5 and level 10 when I got my fifth. Keep in mind this is probably much easier at a lower level and in a lower skill bracket.

TheeFlatlanderI don't have my 5 yet but am finding elimination to be easier because kills count across rounds. Won my initial duel. Then ran in and scored 2 more kills (killing blow for sure). Next round won initial duel. Then scored another kill. Got whooped the rest of the match, but my initial 5 counted.

xIImiseryIIxalso like to add it helps if the enemys team isnt full that way you have bots that are easier to gang up on..also makes it easier to run away..not sure if bots count but i went from 0-40% in 1 match (meaning i got 5 killstreak twice) and pretty sure i killed a lot of bots..just a heads up

NeoSm0keI looked out for the killing blows and I'm 100% sure that I had 5-6 killing blows without dying, my progress tracker is still stuck on the same % that I had before I started playing today.

Anyone else having issues with this or is this bugged or something?

MustangNightsBots do count but only if in a pvp match type

StejesHello! I recently did this with the Nobushi. As SteadySphere says, this should be attempted on Skirmish. Learn the Nobushi moves very good, stay away and attack with the long range moves that she has (mostly did lots lof light attack combos). If you are low RUN, this champion can RUN. Also, the feats that do DMG help a lot (second, third and the fourth->arrow storm to kill maybe a batch of enemies). Also, pickups are helpful (shield and attack)
