Easiest way to get this achievement:

1. Hijack a police carriage.
2. Recruit a Rook and wait for him/her to get onto the carriage with you.
3. Press LB to get onto the roof of the carriage.
4. After the passenger Rook takes over driving, press B to drive again.
5. Repeat until achievement.
MANDAL0R1ANThis worked perfectly!!! Took just a few mins to achieve. Thank you very much.

GoGoActionTeamI had a different solution posted but removed it after I saw this one. I wish I would have known about this before! Great loophole that.

SANTAGATAShould make a note that killing the Bobby doesn't count!

RegalOwlbearFantastic solution! I got a few legitimately, but this made it extremely easy to mop up the rest. Just make sure you don't get out of the carriage or the trick won't work any longer.

Commander IanGot my 1000 GS thanks to you. + 1 vote.

ARCHER MIKEIt still works. After about 30 times it glitched out on me and I had to take over another carriage to get to 50 to complete the perk. Note: you only need 20 for the achievement.

The only thing I would add to the solution is at the top of the solution add a sentence that says "only 1 Police Carriage Needed" or something like that to grab the reader's attention, then there is no need to read the other solutions. lol

thx for the tip.

TylerWardaddyWorks like a charm, took all of 4-5 minutes to get this. Hardest part was getting the stupid Rook to get into the cart.

Gouldy1972Still works ☺
Posted by Gouldy1972 on 11 Feb 16 at 19:10
Jan Derconthanks for posting, works like a charm.

in a reply to beamyowl, if u accidentally get oof the carriage, you just need to get back on, wait for a rook to join you on the bench, start driving at high speed, go to the roof and back to driving, if driven fast enough/ u do it at an east pace it will still count ;-)

PatchyEoinWhere is the best place to find a police cart as im having trouble finding any maybe ive gone to far as im in sequence 8
Posted by PatchyEoin on 19 May 16 at 07:50
HeraizenThey're pretty consistent everywhere where there are carriages, if you're really struggling then I guess Big Ben (Fast Travel point in the East of Westminster is a good spot.

I've finished Sequence 9 so story progression shouldn't be an issue.

Luku38tried it today (22.07.2016) and it doesn't work anymore. i even tried to recruit them while standing on the roof of the police cart. they just run to another cart and return next to you in a different vehicle ....
Posted by Luku38 on 22 Jul 16 at 09:07
Jdobemstill works, had no problem doing this...
hijacked a police car, recruited a rook, then drove and switched places until the achievement unlocked...
Posted by Jdobem on 23 Jul 16 at 19:05
Luku38then why is my recruited rook highjacking another cart ?!? :(
Posted by Luku38 on 23 Jul 16 at 21:18
Jdobemsorry, dont know, try in another place, situation... i literally just did it a few hours ago so its not been patched....
are you recruiting a rook and letting him drive the police car or you driving yourself first? try leaving the police car and seeing if he goes to it...
Posted by Jdobem on 23 Jul 16 at 21:46
Luku38tried that method aswell. by recruiting him while i'm on the streets and after that, when i jump on the driver seat of the police cart, he/she just starts running towards another cart, highjacks it and comes back to me while remaining in his cart ...
Posted by Luku38 on 23 Jul 16 at 22:26
Dr PurrpleAs of August 24th, this method still works. At first, my Rook was trying to drive a neutral carriage. Just make him follow you, make sure there are not many carriages around and he will hop onto the police carriage with you.

DAD2206Worked like a charm, thanks!
Posted by DAD2206 on 24 Sep 16 at 21:25
ReronFor folks who have their recruited rook jump on another cart, you can hire more rooks to get a copilot. Thanks for this solution. Rarely have I been helped more from an achievement I wasn't looking forward to than here.

PsycosuicidalThese are solutions i like. Straight to the point and really clear and quick what you need to do.
Posted by Psycosuicidal on 15 Dec 16 at 14:00
neeker75It works even if you don't take on the police on the carriage on your own. I had my gang members shoot the (two) policemen. I then jumped onto the empty carriage, and started the above sequence. Did it 50 times straight (20 for the achievement, another 30 for the perk) without any issues. Don't know why this got negatives. Top-notch solution. +1

AradorLove easy solutions like this, did 50 for the Skill as well
Posted by Arador on 09 Oct 17 at 01:05
illdizzogThumbs up for the solution, that works a treat.

However, my achievement tracker is stuck at 95% despite the fact I've unlocked the perk (meaning I've hijacked a police vehicle 50 times). Anyone have a similar problem and was able to solve it?
Posted by illdizzog on 31 Oct 17 at 07:41
illdizzogJust an update: this just randomly unlocked 3 days later, date stamped on the day I would have actually got the achievement if it hadn't of got stuck. Go figure.

Same thing has happened to "Without a Grudge" now. Stuck at 98% for 2 days now...

TyolonJust wanted to confirm this solution still works, just got it right now (May 29th, 2018) and it worked beautifully, thank you! For anyone struggling to find a police carriage, Sequence 5, Memory 2 provides you with the perfect chance to snag one. Your first objective will be to free Ned from a police convoy. Ignore the mission and the objectives and simply steal one of the police carriages in the convoy, then drive away to a safier location and complete the steps provided by the solution. Happy Hunting :)

Zenososthe solution that worked for me too, however i used throwing knifes to kill 1 then hijacked other. i got chased and managed to rack up 4-5 jumping across carriages and keep the chain going in chasing.

Hey ! My achievement tracker is stuck at 95% ... What should i do ?

HyruleBalverineI'm not sure why this solution has negative votes as I not only got the achievement this way today, but I also finished the perk this way.

xXSikSkorgXxI have completed the requirements and I have done 50/50 but still locked at 95% I have synced my profile gone offline then back online and still not unlocking. I went offline started a new game carried out the requirements then resynced when I went back online with my original save and still not unlocked
Posted by xXSikSkorgXx on 02 Aug at 22:09
theonlydragonsiI am also stuck on 95%. I hadn't done any untill i just tried and the achievement tracker stopped at 95%
Posted by theonlydragonsi on 31 Aug at 16:23
bchay25081st step in a guide for an achievement described as hi jack 20 police vehicles is "hijack a police carriage". No advice on where to find carriages. No clarity on what to repeat. Another guide says you need to repeat steps 3-5 if you successfully pull off 1 & 2.
Posted by bchay2508 on 09 Sep at 02:09
HyruleBalverineDude, you can literally find them all over the place in the game. The coppers drive around London in them. There is no one specific place because they drive all over the city.

Posted by TeamPyrex718 on 13 Sep at 02:30
theonlydragonsiFor those gamers that were stuck at 95% mine unlocked about a week later with the time stamp of 7 minutes before I posted my previous comment so give it some time if you have met the requirements
