Once More, With Feeling

Perform 30 perfect active reloads (any mode)   

An active reload is performed by hitting RB to reload your gun, then hitting RB again while the sliding bar is in the small white space along the reload bar. This reloads faster and gives a damage boost. You should be doing this all the time anyway so this won't be much work. This image says it all:

When your gun begins to reload look for the progress bar beneath your weapon icon (top right corner). press the right bumper button when the bar is in the white portion & he'll perform an "active reload" basically a fast reload!

It needs to be smack bang on the white bit though, for it to count as a perfect active reload, the grey area will make him reload fast, but its not classed as perfect. Easiest way to get this is to play on the training grounds, you can practice a lot easier getting your timing right

Easiest achievement in the game so far and im on act 3. I just shot one bullet and pressed RB to reload and landed on the white side of the bar that appears on the top right corner of your screen. If you need help message me. My gamertag is Puffypants420
