Assassin's Creed III

Assassin's Creed III Achievements

Circus Act

Kill 15 guards with a single cannon shot.  

This can be done during DNA Sequence 10 - Memory 3 (Battle of Monmouth). Right after the sequence starts you will be in control of a cannon and have to fight off some enemies. Aim slightly to the left and as far back as you can. Shoot into the approaching group of soldiers and you should get the 15 kills on your first shot. If you miss the shot you can either restart the checkpoint or wait for another group of soldiers.

Aren't there tons of enemies on screen at certain points in the game. I seem to remember a walkthrough video and a developer saying there would be massive battles on screen.

Got this on my first shot with a cannon same place as @8. When the redcoats first begin to approach shoot in between the first 2 groups and you should get it.

Actually, this was fairly easy. When you're in the battle with that French guy, Lafayette, just fire in between two groups of British and you will get it.

And boom goes the dynamite.

Wednesday, November 14, 2012 @ 11:13:48 AM Found this to be the easiest way to do it. You just aim slightly left, go as far up as possible then fire. Demolishes a ton of them and it pops immediately.

Incredibly easy cheevo. I got it on just the 2nd cannon shot by aiming between two advancing platoons.

This was pretty easy for me, I did it on the first wave of enemies, just aim in the middle of a group and fire, the cannonball should bounce through them
