Assassin's Creed: Unity Achievements


Kill an enemy with a lift counterweight.  

The lift can be used by going up to it and jumping on. You will cut a rope and be raised into the air, meanwhile a weight will go down hard opposite of you. An enemy must in that exact spot. If you stab an enemy there and then use it, before they completely die the weight can still give the final blow for the achievement.

Lifts can be found all around the open world. Running towards them will automatically make you cut the rope that activates the counterweight. If an enemy is standing below the lift it will kill him and unlock the achievement for you. Simply get detected, look for such a lift, and wait for the enemies to catch up. Lure them below the lift and then cut the rope.

This can easily be obtained on the Cafe Theatre mission called Damsel in Seamstress. You have to obtain 3 costumes in three different areas. One of the two areas is in Le Maris. Simply go in the green zone and you will see a lift right beside a guard. Get spotted by the guard on purpose and he will follow you to the lift.

Video-guide to get the achievement or trophy Guillotined. For this you must kill an enemy with a rope's counterweight.

Confirming #3's Damsel in Seamstress method. One of the courtyards with a costume contains a small garden entrance with one guard. To your immediate right from this entrance is a lift. Just give the guard a couple of seconds to engage you, then run up to the lift. No skill is really required for this one to pop. I can't confirm if the guard placement is the same there if you're not playing the mission.

During the side mission "tapestry thief" just as you first see the thief there is a lift with a spear wielder right under it, easiest way to get the achievement.

I thought it would be the tricky one, but got it in the first try. Rated 2/5.

I did what #8 said, got it first try. FYI, it's the western area.
