Whit's fur ye'll no go by ye!

Block a firing line 5 times by using a human shield.  

Early on in the game, you will be introduced to this tactic. A firing squad will start to shoot at you and the game will go into slow motion for you. Grab a nearby enemy and use him as a shield (by pressing when indicated). After successful, just load your checkpoint and repeat 4 more times. Later on in the game you will still have plenty of chances, except you won't get slow motion nor the ability to just reload your checkpoint.

This one is way too easy to get. Last mission of sequence two after you free the slaves, you'll have a cut-scene and come back to a battle. At that point is the first time it shows you what to do to block a firing line, you can just repeat that checkpoint and voila.

What button do you press to block a firing line?

If you look in the bottom right where your button input prompts are, if there is an enemy near you while a group is starting their firing line, "A" will change to "Human Shield."

Does this have to be the same firing line shooting 5 times, or can you do it with different firing lines?

I love the different ways we have to kill guards. this is easy to get, the game actually warns you someone is about to shoot so just press A near another guard when you see a yellow triangle and you will use him a shield.

Just like everyone says you can get this right away at the end of sequence 2. However, I didn't restart the chapter. Instead, I just ran up to where all the men were lined up near the entrance and grabbed anyone right by me. They'll kill them and you can do this until the achievement popped up. It took me one minute to do this, but everyone on here had great examples on how to grab it.

@7/8 No, you can get this throughout gameplay. pretty easy to get since guards do have a way of grouping up. keep an eye out for that yellow triangle above their head, press 'A' and another one bites the dust.

Just kept reloading checkpoint in Sequence 2. About a minute.

Does it have to be a "firing line" like multiple guards shooting? because i have blocked wayy more than 5 bullets using a body as a shield. Havent got the achievement so my only guess is its not "firing lines" shooting at me.. but just one or 2 guards. help!?

I got mine with just 3 guards shooting at me..really simple to get with many opportunities every time you go to liberate a fort...

Everyone here and the description says press "A" but the video prompts you to press "X". Which is it? I've tried A a few times when a firing line is preparing to shoot and don't grab anyone. Confused.

Oh,'s a trophy in the video instead of an achievement, so must be a PS3 button. Never mind.
