This can be surprisingly hard to get, the easiest and guaranteed way is to go to the Masyaf training area (outside the castle), and select combo kill, perform 3 and repeat until achievement. I only had to do this 3 times after I finished the game.

Alternatively, if you have the technique nailed down, start the counter training and do combo kills in there then you don't have to restart after every three kills.
Ninjah Monkeyyeah i couldn't do this in an actual fight or it'd happen by fluke the training arena is probably the best bet

Bad KermitGreat solution. Just got this achievement.

thomasklijbroekTook me 14 rounds (second "kill" in round 14 was the one that unlocked it). I had already finished the game when I attempted this, so that means I've used combo kill only 9 times in the entire game >.<
And I wasn't the type to just stay waiting for enemies to attack so I could counter either, I was always attacking them to make the fights more stylish and less boring.

So, thanks for showing us this easy way to get it, because there is no way I would have gotten this anytime soon if I had tried to get it on guards.

METALGAMER8it works (: soooooo much faster than trying to get it in actual fights, b/c like everybody else says, it's almost impossible to get the timing right

Posted by Flynn423 on 10 Oct 11 at 13:51
Mikeyoligystill works as of 15/01/2012 - great solution, although i did it on my eight combo kill in the ring. clearly i've been searching for those blasted flags for too long :(

PC CalixtoWorked fine for me... easy easy
Posted by PC Calixto on 06 Feb 12 at 04:33
fdoubleprimeI'd only add that you can do the combo kills in the training session for dodging (the one that unlocks after the first assassination of the third memory block). I assume they count for the other training modes, too, but I can only vouch for that one.

FatalBrushHello from 2nd April 2012, it still works :)
Posted by FatalBrush on 02 Apr 12 at 19:55
Archer RivalGreat solution! If anyone has trouble with the combo timing, watch the X button icon on the top right of the HUD. When you attack, it turns white. If you hit X the moment it turns back to blue, it will perform a successful combo. Took me awhile to notice this, but saved a ton of time once I did.

DemonspitfirNovember 12th - First Day of Playing This Game. Confirmed to still work.

Simple Solution to add...

Start out rapidly tapping the button and then slow it down until you get your timing down.

I also Highly Suggest you do this in Combo Kills Training mode that way you get confirmation of what It looks like when you successfully do one.
Posted by Demonspitfir on 12 Nov 12 at 07:16
Jenova20Would be nice if you mentioned how to do a combo kill too though. I haven't played the game in a while and now i'm getting used to it again this guide can't really help me
Posted by Jenova20 on 19 Nov 12 at 20:40
rocking23nfit tells you in the arena how to do it Jenova. Thanks op, this worked like a charm, took around 5 minutes.

Jonny1872Still works August 2014. Had to do it 48 times LOL
Posted by Jonny1872 on 20 Aug 14 at 09:10
Still works but as the newer guide says, if you start the counter training and do combo kills in there then you don't have to restart after every three kills, great for people like me wo just air assassinated everybody and have a lot of kills to go.
Posted on 21 Sep 14 at 10:10

Apostle92627Just got the achievement in the counter kills tutorial. Thanks for the guide!
Posted by Apostle92627 on 14 Jul 18 at 18:02
JX JuniorThis was incredibly easy to get without going to the tutorial. I had already gotten my 50 before I even assassinated my 2nd out of the 9 targets, mainly by doing this achievement on the guards who are harassing the citizens.
