Zen and the Art Part 2

Perform 5 perfect active reloads in a row (on any difficulty)  

As said in "Zen and the Art of Reloading", mastering this isn't all too difficult, but doing it perfectly 5 times in a row can be tricky. Stand still in a clear area and shoot one bullet off, then try to do an Active Reload. Once you hit it 5 times in a row, you'll get this achievement.

Active reload is when you hit the reload button and then again when the bar gets into the white area. That's an active reload. Plus it loads the gun faster, and makes the bullets stronger.

You know, if you get good at this game fast, you'll get this before part 1, like me.

A good way to get five perfect reloads in a row is to switch between weapons while doing it. If you do it with one weapon only, then the perfect area continually becomes slightly smaller and the dial moves quicker. If you do it with a lancer, hammerburst and snub pistol and then switch between the two or three weapons while doing the reloads, the dial's speed is consistent and the target area doesn't shrink.
