Before going to the balcony, use the armoury to equip a Bald Eagle with Optics and a Heavy barrel, as this is the best weapon combination to use for the achievement. As you reach the balcony, a cutscene will begin where you begin to zipline and are hit by a helicopter. As you change direction, your character will pull out his pistol and you must kill an enemy before hitting the balcony, which is about a 2-3 second window of opportunity. Aim down the zipline, slightly to the right, and shoot at the flashlight. Pause your game just as you are about to hit the balcony!

If you got the kill, the achievement will unlock, and if you didn’t select “Restart Checkpoint”. If you wait too long, the game will not allow you to restart the checkpoint. Keep trying until you kill someone!

On one side of this base, there is a steep rocky cliffside, with a small yellow crane at the top, as well as a helipad. Make your way around the base towards the top of this area using dirt paths. When you reach the top, you’ll notice a small dirt path leading away from the crane/helipad towards the main objective. Follow the path and you’ll find the dirt bike. Get on the dirt bike, proceed forward until you find a ramp, and jump into the mansion grounds.
