Be the Knife

Deflect a bow gun arrow with your knife.  

Chapter 2-1 will be the first time you encounter a Majini with a crossbow, there isn't really a trick here. Just get your timing right and this achievement will be yours.

Actually the best way I found to do the achievement is in the level where you jump across a gap on to a bridge and a truck trys to ram you. after knocking over the truck, snipe all the manjini except for one crossbow manjini. sit as far back as possible on the bridge and wait for him to fire. its really the longest line of sight that still allows you to see him easily. I have helped many friends who all found this method the best, but be sure to leave the crossbowman on the right of the bridge alive so you you can half sit behind the left of the downed truck.

Another good way to do the achievement is in chapter 3-3, at the beginning a couple of manjini swill be shooting you arrows at a good distance and the other manjinis won't attack you in the meantime. Anyway, if you fail, you can restart and try again as many times as you need.

Me and my friend did this one right after you come out of the mine. Play on easiest difficulty and bring first aid.

This one surprisingly was extremely easy. I got it just after you destroy the truck; on my first try for the achievement. When the group comes just wait for the bow to be shot and when its close attack with your knife for an easy 60G.

Wow. Got this completely randomly. 60G seems like a bit too much for this though....

Keep flicking your knife in front of a crossbow, once it fires, you'll deflect it. Happened for me pretty much straight away.

I initially set out to do this by doing what Comment #1 said (Chapter 2-1), but I actually got it before the truck scene. When you're on top of the storage containers, there will be two Majini shooting at you from a distance to your left. It's pretty easy to get because they'll be shooting at you in a clean, straight line.

I tried getting it earlier in the level when I was on the ground and a Majini was on a shipping container and I couldn't get the Majini to shoot me, probably because of the awkward position. If you're planning on getting this, seek out a Majini shooter where it's a straight line to you. Otherwise they'll hit everything but you.
