First off if you haven't played the game yet use the other guides posted and gain this achievement it will save you some trouble.

If you pass the Shanty Town/Gondola sections without gaining the achievement you will have to use this method once game is complete.

I had completed the game and realized I had missed this thinking another playthrough was required I read some comments on here from Ryozenzuzex
to which I give full credit for helping me and hopefully others in the same predicament...

Fast travel to Helicopter Hill in Shanty Town, go to here on the map to be exact

You Should be looking out to tower above something like this (If zipline isnt where it is on picture you will have to climb tower to make it so) jump on rail in front of you and to the roof behind jump on zipline and use the rope ascender (hold x) to get to the top.

Enemies should spawn (If they don't re-enter Helicopter Hill I could only get enemies to spawn in the daytime) turn around zip down to where you were and enemies should follow I found the rifle works best to knock them off the line but weapon of choice is up to you, once they're killed run back to zip-line ascend again enemies spawn again and repeat until achievement pops.

Cheers to SiebeTolsma who used this guide and was kind enough to make a video version
EmperoxGraylandThis is an awesome guide -- I thought I had to start all over again as well. Thanks! As a bonus, I made a quick video showing this technique. Feel free to use it in your guide!

kooitjethanks for the guide it worked quite well. although its a bit glitchy, i have 2 save games in tombraider on the first save i shot about 25 from the zip-lines and i didn't pop also they didn't spawn anymore so i went to my second save and it popped after just shooting 3 badguys.

AvalonDstrOfMenGreat solution, when I completed this achievement I did a brand new play through just for this one achievement, if I knew this then, I would have saved a lot of time. Kudos man!

tntiseverywereI cannot the enemies to respawn... any ideas?

Wrongway1985Thanks for making the video SiebeTolsma ,Its great so I've included it in the solution

Wrongway1985@ tntiseverywere Do you just mean spawn? once they spawn they should keep respawning once they're killed.
Posted by Wrongway1985 on 01 Apr 13 at 18:35
tntiseverywere@Wrongway1985 i killed anyone i could find in Shantytown and now there are no enemies at all. I searched every inch of the map (because i think you need to kill the existing in order to respawn in another location) i manage to get 6 kills on ziplines but it seems i need more..
Posted by tntiseverywere on 02 Apr 13 at 16:07
Ham SaladThe guys at the top spawn there before the end of the game, so you don't need to finish the game first.
Posted by Ham Salad on 04 Apr 13 at 16:45
GerbasgamerAll enemies are respawning in Shantytown except the ones in the tower >.>
Posted by Gerbasgamer on 05 Apr 13 at 23:02
Wrongway1985@tntiseverywhere once enemies spawn in that location dont leave map they should reappear once killed, no need to search every inch of the map its only that location you should be worried about.
Posted by Wrongway1985 on 06 Apr 13 at 22:55
Wrongway1985@Ham Salad Didnt know as I had completed it personally thanks for the info.
Posted by Wrongway1985 on 06 Apr 13 at 22:59
Wrongway1985@Gerbasgamer All enemies? thats odd often heard of none spawning could you get them to follow you off the ziplines then or they're appearing on the ground is it?
Posted by Wrongway1985 on 06 Apr 13 at 23:03
rickwhI can repeat the process shown in the video until there is a pile of dead guys 20 deep, and still dont get the achievement... It is very buggy and im done pi$$ing around with it. Sigh... I also played through the game again and didnt get this achievement. Done. Great game, but man getting these achievements to pop is crazy.
Posted by rickwh on 11 Apr 13 at 10:18
Wrongway1985@rickwh have u died in between some kills as count will reset if games not saved , head over to the bonfire every 2-3 kills if thats the case prob needed if playing on hard.
Posted by Wrongway1985 on 11 Apr 13 at 11:47
rickwh@Wrongway Thanks. I'll admit that I have died a few times when cycling though this process. Mostly because sometimes she doesn't grab the zip line as I'm jumping from the upper platform.
Do you think it resets it to 0 or back to the count it was at the last time i saved? In other words do you think the achievement is for 10 dudes within one "life". If so I think I've done that too.
When I had the pile of 20 dead dudes, I was walking back out thru the gate in Shanty town (until I saw the TR save symbol) every so often.
I saw other posts saying perhaps you had to do head-shots so they die on the zip line instead of die from falling. Perhaps that is something to try.
Frustrating to say the least.

rickwhI'm playing on XBOX and there is an error in the rendering of the zip line. The bottom part of the zipline (arrow attached at the bottom) is just floating in mid air a bit below the rope wrapped around the wood sticking out of the roof of the "shed". Does anyone else on XBOX see this. It isn't rendered that way in the above video.
Posted by rickwh on 11 Apr 13 at 19:45
Wrongway1985@rickwh Go to top of tower (where enemies spawn) just ignore (for now) look down facing "shed"and replant the zipline to match one in video?
Posted by Wrongway1985 on 11 Apr 13 at 21:19
rickwh@wrongway. Replanting zipline fixed the rendering bug. But by killing the two dudes at the top instead of making them chase me down the zipline.... The game saved and now nothing spawns for me. I think i locked myself out of getting the ach with this save.
Posted by rickwh on 13 Apr 13 at 04:32
Wrongway1985@richwh I personally killed them loads of times and never had an issue youve tried re-entering the zone a few times right? I see you've missed the chatterbox achievement which would require another playthrough anyway maybe worry about this should u go for another runthrough.
Posted by Wrongway1985 on 13 Apr 13 at 09:51
ZulghinlourThis worked great for me after finishing the game, I used the exact same spot to get the "Get Over Here" achievement for rope pulling guys to their death. Thanks!
Posted by Zulghinlour on 18 Apr 13 at 06:41
rickwh@wrongway finally got this ach. Had to play thru game again though. I am convinced my saved game was hosed. :-) Anyways thanks for this awesome tip. Im also going for the major pain in the a$$ chatterbox with this one too. Two birds one stone... Thx
Posted by rickwh on 21 Apr 13 at 00:45
Steakslaveclap Just wanted to say thanks for this guide! This is the ONLY spot in my game where enemies would always respawn. Also would like to note that this cheevo is maybe a bit buggy; by the time it popped I had more like 20 guys shot off ziplines.
Posted by Steakslave on 22 Apr 13 at 04:45
DivineWind72Worked a treat, thanks.
Posted by DivineWind72 on 23 Apr 13 at 23:34
LordjiThis sucks. Ennemies appear anywhere else but at that point. I've tried reloading it several times. Do the ennemies, at one point, come up to that point? Mine are always downstairs.
Posted by Lordji on 27 Apr 13 at 15:29
bhaines23The only ones that count are the ones where you shoot them and they fall and die on impact of the ground. The problem is all of your guns are powerful so you kill them in one shot. I had to use the shotgun to knock them off.
Posted by bhaines23 on 02 May 13 at 06:17
DeathR0T@Wrongway, I am sorry my friend, but after the game is completed you simply cannot get those guys to spawn on the tower. I have relocated myself at the tents to various places, including restarting my 360 completely to see if that would make a change. The only asterix to my resolve would be that you MUST have the rope already there attached before you beat the game. If you beat it without the rope attached, I can only assume it is impossible. Please delete your header in the solution **SOLUTION FOR THOSE WHO HAVE COMPLETED THE GAME** because it is incorrect, but thank you for your valiant efforts and vid. Game on.
Posted by DeathR0T on 10 May 13 at 06:05
Wrongway1985@DeathR0t I had to re-route the wire myself after I completed the game as it wasn't positioned correctly that's what you need to do, enemies should spawn and try attack as you re-route just ignore them descend rope and away you go. Don't assume its impossible try it out, hope this helps!
Posted by Wrongway1985 on 10 May 13 at 16:29
Dropkick Hope86Best solution for this. I would go up there and get their attention. The zip line down. They would follow, so I would kill them. Then I would go back up and they had respawned instantly.
Posted by Dropkick Hope86 on 15 May 13 at 09:54
Halderi've got another non spawner here. restarted several times ,cleared cache and fast traveled to and from helicopter hill loads of time and they are still not spawning in the correct place. :(
Posted by Halder on 22 May 13 at 08:41
ConchieJoe@halder001 Same here.... About to snap lol.
Posted by ConchieJoe on 27 May 13 at 02:04
Psycho Trenti gave positive feedback, but the game is buggy, I have the perfect set up, the guys follow me down the line, i shoot them off, i'm at over 50 kills, I HAVE NOT DIED even once, and traveled every 10 kills or so to save them game. Then re-travel back to shantytown. I even did 40 cumulative in a row without dying and still no cheevo! grrrr.. its annoying, and NO other achievement in the whole game has bugged other than this one it's been flawless. Hats off for the solution though.
Posted by Psycho Trent on 07 Jun 13 at 20:19
cooorpseIt simple doesn't work. I had to route the wire and then they never respawn again.
Posted by cooorpse on 08 Jun 13 at 17:53
SayonaraKumquatI was having a lot of trouble with this myself- I hadn't set up the rope so I had to do it when the enemies were still there, so I climbed around and waited until they were done with their dialog and walked away to set it up. I was successful and went to respawn the enemies and died. The next time I decided to just kill them and set it, but when I did that they did not spawn anymore- it seems to be they can't be killed when on the tower, I had even tried traveling to other locations and returning to no avail. So I switched to another account and after finally setting it and getting away, I saved the game and was able to get the achievement. Not sure if the game just glitched or their location of being killed actually effects the respawn.
Posted by SayonaraKumquat on 11 Jun 13 at 20:55
Old TandyDitto on not being able to get them to respawn. No matter where I go or how much time passes, the enemies never return. Glad this has worked for some but it's definitely not an all-inclusive solution.
Posted by Old Tandy on 19 Jun 13 at 19:56
C3LLDW3LLERLooks like another playthrough for me. Can't get them to respawn.
Posted by C3LLDW3LLER on 30 Jun 13 at 15:12
KillieExileI think Bhaine23 is right, our weapons might be too powerful thus killing them before they hit the ground.
Posted by KillieExile on 02 Jul 13 at 20:33
PuckJunkieI was able to get the enemies to respawn just by shooting a weapon once, staying at the bottom of the zipline. This also increased the number of times that I managed to get both enemies to come down the zipline. It's a pretty handy tactic.

Unfortunately, like many others, it doesn't seem to matter how many of them I knock off the zipline, the achievement never pops. I believe I can tell the difference between killing someone with the weapon and them dying from hitting the ground, based on when the experience is awarded. If I unload on someone with the rifle, for instance, they die and I receive XP immediately, as they fall. If I hit them in the body with a single uncharged bow shot, they fall and don't die until they hit the ground - half the time they're actually yelling something on the way down. It doesn't seem to matter, though. I've killed dozens of these guys various ways and the achievement won't pop.

HangmanK7These guys never spawn up there. It's so frustrating I don't know what I am doing wrong
Posted by HangmanK7 on 08 Jul 13 at 19:41
DWilhelmssonI managed to get the respawn no problem, even after killing the guards on the tower and resetting the rope a few times...however, after about 40 minutes, no achievement! Ryozenzuzex has a comment on another guide saying that head shots are the way to go and I can confirm that this worked for me, having previously been trying to get them killed by the fall. Hope that helps!
Posted by DWilhelmsson on 12 Jul 13 at 22:25
TorchstoneThanks for the solution. I can confirm the headshot theory. I killed plenty of dudes and then after reading the comments tried headshots. After three more confirmed headshots (with rifle) it popped. So if you are having trouble try headshots without dying.
Posted by Torchstone on 14 Jul 13 at 22:25
HyruleSnakethey spawned once and havent since. does anyone know how long into the story id have to play to get 10?
Posted by HyruleSnake on 15 Jul 13 at 03:42
TorchstoneWell since you may need to get head shots, it may depend on how good of a shot you are. But I think the part where (spoiler alert) Grim dies is probably the place.

Also since it is called dead eye it kinda makes sense that some headshots may be needed. Has anyone confirmed that you do not need the head shots (i.e. have it pop after killing a guy sans headshot)?
Posted by Torchstone on 15 Jul 13 at 05:17
HarmeIs there any solution how to make them respawn again? I beat the game, came back to that place, had 2 guys in the tower, went up there, shot an arrow, killed the guys, went back down but none of them respawned. So i load the game, tried traveling and lots of other stuff but i can't make them respawn.. Any ideas?
Posted by Harme on 25 Jul 13 at 21:29
LordjiThere is no consistent way of respawning ennemies as they usually don't. I'm sorry but I guess you're gonna have to start a new game. I had to myself for this very same achievement.
Posted by Lordji on 30 Jul 13 at 22:14
l3jmrAnyone know if this can be done in MP ?
Posted by l3jmr on 05 Aug 13 at 19:12
LordjiHey Harme who are you kidding? I answered to your two previous messages just above. Stop the copy/paste.
Posted by Lordji on 07 Aug 13 at 20:51
LizardKingLXXXIPhew! Worked a charm! Thank you!! clap
Posted by LizardKingLXXXI on 18 Aug 13 at 17:25
deutschZuidWhat the hell is with this Harme guy? Anyway, this carries over across multiple walkthroughs. It's actually faster to play through the campaign again racking up the kills, then to frustrate over the lack of endgame enemy.
Posted by deutschZuid on 20 Aug 13 at 01:45
SkoouLIt worked me for killing about 4 enemies , but somehow they stoped respawning. Some people asked me if the kill count through the saves , the answer is : unfortunately no. What did I do ? i started the game again, on easy , and focused on all enemies on the zipping lines that I saw and when I arrived Shanty Town I got all the 10 kills.
Posted by SkoouL on 08 Sep 13 at 16:56
TorchstoneHas anyone confirmed that you do not need the head shots (i.e. have it pop after killing a guy by hitting him anywhere but the head??
Posted by Torchstone on 09 Sep 13 at 00:09
boldfoxrdI'm right near the end of the game and don't have the achievements so this is really gonna come in handy :)
Posted by boldfoxrd on 26 Sep 13 at 22:37
DracgnarThanks for the guide

In my case, both shooting at their heads for insta kills or shooting at their bodies to make them drop worked, though it only popped on my 12th kill (4 kills from headshots and 8 kills from dropping)
Posted by Dracgnar on 07 Oct 13 at 01:02
styze2not sure why anyone down voted this. +1+1+1+1
Posted by styze2 on 23 Oct 13 at 03:27
QuizabuckWant to add that I also needed head shots. Put about 30 down and only after going for head shots did it unlock. Might have just been luck, but I would recommend going for head shots if your not unlocking the achievement.
Posted by Quizabuck on 01 Nov 13 at 21:43
Harmelol guys, i haven't asked that question before, i was reading through the posts but couldn't find a solution to my problem, so i was asking.. only once, you should read up the names maybe? stop mixing me up with someone else, thank you.
however, i guess i have to restart, damn it.
Posted by Harme on 17 Nov 13 at 20:05
beets101No soldiers for me neither. So its obvoiusly glitchy which is a shame but im not playing tru for a third time thats for sure.
Posted by beets101 on 10 Dec 13 at 23:39
DeliriousDrewGreat guide. I had to set the rope after beating the game. Killed maybe 16-20 finally popped off of a headshot.
Posted by DeliriousDrew on 28 Dec 13 at 01:39
Clutch RinoFirst time I did this I got the enemies to spawn. After killing them I tried to go back up and the enemies wouldn't spawn. Then I re-entered shantytown and it spawned me at the top where the enemies were. Everytime I go back into shantytown the enemies don't spawn anymore. I've tried this during the day and at night and nothing seems to work
Posted by Clutch Rino on 05 Jan 14 at 19:12
roolf92Ok, so this is how it worked for me. Ive completed the game, walked to that tower (havent got zip line before attached), and attached zip line. On the top of the tower there was 2 enemies just like in the video. So i was doing excactly the same like in this video. I killed maybe 20 without dying and nothing. Then i stardet aiming for headshots. I killed 10 times and cheevo popped up. So u have to aim for headshots to kill them while they are on the rope, not killing by the fall!
Posted by roolf92 on 06 Jan 14 at 21:29
WithTheDawnMy experience: went to this area, didn't already have the zip line. Killed the guys on the tower to set it up, and then they would never respawn. I had another save right at the end of the game, so I loaded that up. This time when I went to the area I created the zip line without killing the enemies, and they would respawn. I'm certain that making sure they die off the tower is vital to making sure they continue to respawn - kill them on the tower and they are gone for good!

When I did get the achievement in the end it was with a headshot kill as well, shooting them off the line didn't seem to be working.

Hope that helps people!
Posted by WithTheDawn on 15 Jan 14 at 10:01
KugareI had absolutely no luck with the solution, because the enemys never spawned at this postion.

I started a new game and after 2 - 3 hours i was in shanty town and got the achievement.
So starting a new game is not THAT bad as it sounds... of course it still sucks a bit.
Posted by Kugare on 26 Jan 14 at 11:45
Sparkz1977This didn't work for me after my first play through. It did, however, work on my second play through (missed chatterbox the first time too). I don't know what I did differently the second time, so it seems to be pot luck.
Posted by Sparkz1977 on 29 Jan 14 at 00:25
Guds SkyfallDON'T spend time trying to get those two guards in the Shanky town tower to spawn; they didn't show up even once for me post-game despite reentering the area around 30 times. As soon as I switched over to an older non-post game file they showed up immediately.

For me only one of the guards usually chose to use the zipline; the other one went over to my parts on foot, so I just shot crippled and killed him to work towards the dodge incapacitation achievements meanwhile. Also, you don't need to get the "headshot" message for the zipline kills to count, but I cannot say if you need to hit the head since it seemed like I did it when the achievement popped.
Posted by Guds Skyfall on 30 Jan 14 at 16:21
coipIndeed. I've tried dozens of times, both before and after beating the game. The guys in Shantytown simply will not re-spawn for me. Frustrating.
Posted by coip on 11 Feb 14 at 05:39
Torchstone@Guds, so you think you do need the headshot, but don't need the headshot notification? Thanks.

Maybe I missed it but has anyone shot a dude in the belly and popped this? It seems that only DracoKall could have possibly popped it without a headshot but he didn't say which type of shot ended up popping it so I am not sure. Anyone? Thanks.
Posted by Torchstone on 12 Feb 14 at 18:34
So I missed this on Xbox one version, and killed 14 using your method and no achievement, but 3 headshots and bam it popped thanks
Posted on 22 Feb 14 at 15:13
The GlobalizerI popped it on a shotgun blast, non-headshot, popped when he hit the ground (delayed XP notification and everything). Shit is just buggy.
Posted by The Globalizer on 23 Feb 14 at 05:44
RedSVOI can verify this solution works, after completing the game, in the Xbox One Definitive Edition! Thanks for the solution! +1
Posted by RedSVO on 04 Mar 14 at 05:54
rwbazI just want to add that I was having trouble with this as well until I started going for headshots. I had killed probably 30 or so with no achievement until I tried headshots and then got it after 7 kills.
Posted by rwbaz on 28 Mar 14 at 01:31
rwbazShould also point out it was on the xbox one.

Phoenix BLKThis isn't working for me. They aren't spawning there and the enemies can't climb or follow you. Tried doing it legit during the campaign but they're such retaded AI, in such a fantastic game!

C3LLDW3LLERWhat about using this method for the former adventurer achievement? If you've completed the game already but haven't got the achievement.
Posted by C3LLDW3LLER on 29 May 14 at 14:48
C3LLDW3LLERJust answered my own question, it works. Awesome. Just let them come down the rope, and dodge counter them.
Posted by C3LLDW3LLER on 29 May 14 at 14:52
gingerninja nzYou gotta use headshots. Finally pinged for me using headshots with the bow.
Posted by gingerninja nz on 01 Jun 14 at 13:33
Slimebag44Well this is what I figured out.
I loaded up Helicopter Hill. Went to the location. Did not have the right rope to their roof. Went up there. Killed the 2. Then connected the rope. Slid down. Went back up. No respawn. Restarted the game. No respawn. Did this for an hour or so. No respawn.

Then I loaded up an older game. Went back to the same spot.
This time I did not kill the 2 guys first. I went up. Connected the rope. Slid down.
They followed. Head shot them as they came down. Sometimes 1 of them would climb down instead of using the zipline. As long as you kill them away from their tower. They will respawn.
Rinse and repeat.
This works. Just dont kill them in the tower, or you will lose their respawn.
Hope this helps guys.
Posted by Slimebag44 on 11 Jul 14 at 05:43

I did the same that slimebag44 did I killed them in their tower! and they won't respawn -_- I don't have an older save so what do I do?

Vr EnglishThank god! Yes! I had to try 3 different saves at different points in the game (my 100% save didn't work but my 95% did) but I got it where they were at the top. The trick is when they are up there to make sure its all done in one go! Thank god.
Posted by Vr English on 05 Mar 15 at 01:34
KennyannydennyUnfortunately this does not work post completion. I've tried getting them to spawn but after the first time no enemies ever respawn. I've searched all the area's in the game and they are all empty. The only place where enemies keep respawning in in the caverns in the pit with cannibals. Those locked up in cages keep respawning. So at least i can use them for kills with certain weapons, but pulling enemies of ledges or shooting them from zip lines is off course not going to work there. I think i have to restart the whole game. Oh well, i already had to since i missed a conversation for Chatterbox.

XxBenniBongoxXNight or day, i cant get them to spawn on that tower, afetr finishing gane i came here for an idea cos i just didnt want to do a whole playthru again, when i spawned at the camp i had to re-establish the zipwire ! While i was trying to do that the dudes on the tower always killed me b4 i could attach the wire to the post on the roof below, so when i got to the top of the tower i HAD to, kno other way round it, Had to kill the guys at the top of the tower so i had time to get my wire attached ! After that i went up and downn, repeat repeat, no one spawned, i went to the fire to save so at least my zipwire was attached when i tried again. I have had the pigs and chickens spawning, even some ground 'soldiers' like the guy u hear talking about 'Her being somewhere' when its his pet rat he is talkin about, ive did it day and night, repeatedly left game and staarted again but there is never anyone at the ttop of the tower, any ideas?

x RepoUK xI did this after completion. I needed 10 all in the same session even though I'd got at least 5 before during the game. I did not need all headshots either.

ssippieeSo my experience will hopefully help somebody. I loaded up my 100% save and went to the Shantytown. There I killed the two guys up the tower when trying to connect the zip line. Like people have said before, Big mistake they did not respawn after that. On top off that, nobody spawned for me in the Town. It was as if I finally killed off every one on the Island.

So I backed out and loaded my 76% completed game. On this save I completed the story and that's it. Didn't finish all the weapons, collectibles and skills. So with that save I lured the two guys down. Went to the top, hooked up the zip line, killed them and then went up the zip line. Guys are there again. I must have missed like two or so because I killed 3 on the zip line and got the achievement.

It popped on a kill on the zip line not on fall damage. So I don't know if it's just shooting off or killing. But if you wanna be safe just aim for the head :)

So TL:DR If you have killed those guys on top off the towers they will probably not respawn on you. Especially if you have a 100%. Having only done the story and still have not upgraded everything. You have a good change that this works for you. (Unless you killed the guys probably)

UberniXiJust finished this. Headshots is definitely the way to go.

z RagnaroK zI also can't get the enemies to show up (beaten game already).

From what I have gathered though, you can't kill yourself after finding guys to farm either. I tried doing this towards the end of the game by killing the same set of 4 guardian soldiers over and over and then jumping off a ledge myself. I must have killed 40 enemies this with no achievement. Not sure if you need to go "save" at a campfire/quit to menu but it definitely seems like dying resets the counter in some way.

Hope this helps.

LooneyWatchinTVMan this one was a pain. Out of my three saves only one had men spawn up the top of the tower. Tip, if you can, copy your save to a USB as a backup! If you accidentally kill one after ascending to get their attention, they stop spawning. Luckily I did this, restored it and continued on. Only other advice is, after you kill them (headshots) don’t reload checkpoint or die, just ascend up the rope again, two new guys will spawn. I hid behind the building, and aimed my pistol at the rope, so when they slid down it was already aimed. Didn’t take too long after finding a save that worked.
