The tutorials that appear right before you grab your gear are informative to this achievement. You can read them later in the pause menu or read about it here so don't worry about missing them.

This works like a kill streak. You have to kill 4 enemies in a row without being detected. This includes putting enemies on alert without having them see you. Any stealth kill will work so I recommend finding silenced weapons that are scattered along the route. Throwing knives are also good but often Chain Take Downs are the way to go.

Your streak is lost when you die or when you are detected. Each step in the streak gets you a perk activated. The first one is quicker movement when crouched. To see how many steps you've done in the chain, checkout the 4 circles above your crouch symbol in the bottom right of the screen.

It's fully cumulative so if you kill 5 guys in a row so it IS possible to do this in only 29 kills. However everytime the streak resets it will require another 4 to build it back up.

Maka91 Does this have to be done in 1 single playthrough? For some reason, I'm stuck at 88% and it won't go up on my 2nd playthrough, on Action Movie difficulty.

Easy Pete Yes, it seems like it has to be in one playthrough. Mine wasn’t going up at fist in my Action Movie playthrough but once I passed that percentage it started going up again.

Maka91 So, after lots of testing, I had to do all 25 in the same playthrough for it to count.

Segendary Ty I did this all in one playthrough because it was so easy with silenced weapons. I didn't test this therefore. Thanks for checking this out. I'll update the guide and submit flag info

Lymiss So I am stuck at 96% and have no idea why. Have all 4 perks, crouched and doing stealth kills but it won't count any of them. Still on my first play though and saving and closing the game has done nothing. Any ideas?

Segendary Ty Have you tried dying? Also having them in an alerted state won't count for stealth kills even if they don't actually know your position.

Edgify any tips on where to find the silenced weapons?
Posted by Edgify on 07 Jun 18 at 10:10
Segendary Ty Yeah they lie around camps. I know that one of the silenced weapons is near the lake where you can save vietnamese prisoners being fed to crocodiles.

If I remember correctly, there is also a bow at the first Anti-Air they bring to your attention. However the Ammo of that is scarce

Hixooonnn I'm having a trouble with this achievement, i died during my playthrough so i lost the 4 tokens and i have regained the 4 tokens but however the achievement percentage is not going up when i get a stealth kill, do i need to kill another 25 enemies or should it be unlocking?
Posted by Hixooonnn on 26 Jun 18 at 08:06
Segendary Ty No it should be fine. Trying dying again within the playthrough. If it's not your last playthrough I wouldn't sweat it and just start over on the next difficulty
Posted by Segendary Ty on 26 Jun 18 at 08:08
Hixooonnn Yeah the achievement popped when i started again

xONLYINHUMANxx i found this achievement really easy to get... when the you get to the first part i stealth killed the first 4 enemies, the first village i just called in air strike's. after i did it i collected the bow that was at the village
cleared the big rock gun first and went counter clock wise
fighter jet wreck
river warehouse
plantation house
lighter up the hill
just have to be carefully of random platoon's roaming around and helicopters
takedown plus throwing an object makes it a lot more easier

quorumz it seems this is bugged as hell, killed tons of those guys and nothing counted.., why should you need get this in 1 playthrough? (you can see the progress after each kill in your achievement list)
Posted by quorumz on 30 Nov 18 at 18:02
Segendary Ty Because we tested it and if you start a second playthrough your achievement counter will freeze into place until you pass by it
