In order to force someone to be kidnapped you need someone to hate dedsec.

For this I went to one of the restricted areas. Any will do but I used a Clan Kelley one. Stay outside and use a drone as its much easier and means you won't accidentally kill them.

Once you have located your soon to be kidnapper, hold cn_LB to get their information. Notice that they already have a red thumbs down, this means they only dislike dedsec a bit. Need to turn that to hate.

To do this save this person to your recruits so you can view them in your team. For the next part you will need the deep profiler unlocked.

In your team menu hover over this individual (will be at the bottom of the list) and use the deep profiler on them. Look at their schedule and you will see activities involving another person such as eating with veronica(sister). If you press cn_X to investigate this and mark it on your map you can travel there. Use the in game wait tool that pops up when you arrive and you will see both your potential recruit and their companion. Kill their companion and no one else.

When you do this you will be notified your potential recruit now hates dedsec. Brilliant.

Next part is to wait 24 in-game hours. I sped this up by finding someone else, and going to their schedule and waiting again. After this 24 hours Bagley will let you know your actions have influenced your potential recruit to kidnap one of your own.

Complete this mission, rescue your operative and the achievement will pop when the mission completes.
Frankie DrumsNYDuring the SIRS mission Smoking Gun, the operative you are using gets kidnapped, and you rescue them in the next mission, Kill Box. Although the achievement didn't pop for me then, I believe completing completing Kill Box is required to introduce the kidnapping mechanic, as one of my operatives was completed shortly after that mission.

TateyYeah this could be the case. This may not be possible before that mission has been completed. If anyone can confirm I can add that to the solution

Lorne@ Frankie no, it’s not a requirement because my first one popped up and I haven’t started the SIRS quest line yet

LorneThis worked really well thank you!

I’d say don’t put the person who dislikes dedsec in the hospital by beating them up to make them hate dedsec. That made it take a heck of a lot longer.

yomamma950So I had someone get kidnapped but i didnt realize it was an achievement so i was in no rush to do it. It eventually expired and the character is back on my squad without me having rescued them somehow. I tried getting someone else kidnapped and have 4-5 people that hate dedsec but it hasnt happened after several days. Any advice?

TateyAre these people part of another faction? If they are just normal people it may not work? I genuinely don't know if its the case or not but something that you could look into?

LSF OverdriveJust to let everyone know how random this achievement can be : after 20+ hours of playing, I was setting up my Bare-knuckle Fighter as the main target, pissing off every Kelley I could find (I even accidentally made an enemy of Dalton's widow, oops) and when I finally get the Revenge mission started, it's actually my Street Artist who got kidnapped because of someone who had beef with my Professional Hitman.

benh57Much quicker way to make someone hate dedsec: Arrest them twice

1. Choose your albion contractor operative
2. In the action wheel choose arrest
3. Arrest any NPC
4. Rescue the same NPC
5. Arrest them again

They should now hate dedsec
