This achievement can easily be unlocked very early in the game.

You can unlock this achievement as early as in the beginning of the story mission “Rude Awakening” in Fornburg, Norway at the beginning of the game. This is where I unlocked it.

Rude Awakening is the first opportunity you are able to assassinate an enemy from your horse as assassinating enemies is introduced to you in the story mission "The Prodigal Prince" which is directly before it.

- Call your horse by holding cn_left on the directional pad.

- Mount your horse by pressing cn_Y.

- Press cn_B to crouch on your horse.

- Silently approach an unsuspecting enemy and the “Assassinate” prompt will show up.

- Press cn_RB to assassinate from your horse.
The achievement should unlock immediately after.

* There are some practice dummies in Fornburg, Norway (close to the docks) that you can use to assassinate from your horse.

* There are some practice dummies around the Hidden Ones Bureau (after you build it) in your settlement in Ravensthrope, England that you can use to assassinate from your horse.

This is a video of how it is done:

Apostle92627You're taught the assassinate ability as part of the storyline. I tried assassinating from the horse but didn't get the prompt. However, I didn't know you could crouch while riding your mount.

Mikeplays00Worth noting you don't actually have to assassinate someone, just a "stealth attack" where you don't kill them is enough to unlock this

Apostle92627Yeah, when I did it, I made the mistake of going for it during Birthrights (my current power level is 17). I went for it but didn't kill him. The achievement popped when they one-hit me into desync town.

BookewormI'm struggling to get this to unlock. I tried this exact method on both the spy in the video and the practice dummies, but it will not unlock. Any suggestions on weird specifics of the achievement that I should try?

wolfzero01I got it on the practice dummies, I don't know if it makes a difference but I went behind one and did it

PunkSXEThis is also not unlocking for me. The only bugged achievement so far

BookewormFor the bugged achievements in this game, including this one, I found clearing the system cache worked. I tried this probably 20 times and couldn’t get it to unlock, cleared the cache, and then it popped on the next attempt. So I’ve taken to making a save each time I expect an achievement top pop or track, and if it doesn’t I clear the cache and do it again and it’s working fine. Seems to be something on the Xbox side because of the quick-resume feature.

WicelowAfter many MANY tries this is still not unlocking...

Don LuappieThis is very easily obtainable in your base camp in England. I’ve just unlocked it on one of the training dummies near the hidden ones office.
