Yes, I've watched the youtube vid for doing this in the 1st section of the 1st chapter but failed on numerous occasions to actually get it. I finally got it in the last but one section of the same (1st) chapter...

Just as you enter the teahouse turn left & go up the stairs to your left, diving & shooting the 1 or 2 guys as you go up. Turn left at the top & dive & shoot a couple more guys then do a U-turn & groups will start to come out of the door in front of you (door on the right @ the top of the stairs). Keep diving backwards & forwards shooting these groups.

After 2 or 3 groups you should be up to around 42 stars. Jump on the banister to your right & onto the light/swing & finally shoot 2 or 3 guys on the opposite balcony... Achievement unlocked.

This method took 2 or 3 attempts to get right whereas I had attempted what I had seen in the Youtube vid (& failed) many times.

Hope this helps all you people who are as crap @ shooters as I am.
Doc Buddharecent addition by A 1FingerSalute to this post on x360a (where I originally posted it)...

"I can say that Buddha's method above works excellent. Even better than expected. After talking to him a bit (he's the only XBL player who is a Zen Monk & Doctor-of-Botany) Buddha and I agree that this method is by far the best and easiest.

I can add to this that you don't even need to frag the initial guys at all as you enter the Tea house. In fact, it worked better for me if you just do this on Casual mode, and just run up the stairs ASAP, and this way the guys will follow you up the stairs giving you a slew of Style Kills that easily ring up a 50.

Doing it this way, it was completely unnecessary to even jump over onto the chandelier to the other side of the map. There are more than enough kills to be had doing it my "Buddha-Enhanced" Zen version.

Everyone is there at the top of the stairs, and the guys keep coming out the door. Just do Style Kills over & over."

Recon1O1Surprisingly easy with this method. I hung out on the railing just after you reach the top of the right stairs and the groups of mugs just came through the door and lined up for execution. I got 60 before swinging on the chandelier. This was on Casual but still much easier than the railings in Ch. 1. If you get on the Chand early there's a dead spot as you can only cover about 320 degrees and the counter resets if you miss far more difficult shots. Thank you Dr. B.

PunzleyGood solution, took me 5-6 attempts but I got it with an exact 50-star combo.

EthigyGreat solution, very easy method. Immediately ran to the top of the stairs and waited for a bunch of guys to run up after me before starting to kill. Didn’t even need to use the chandelier.
