'''How To''': This achievement is very hard, as it recquires expert aiming and the right opportunity. A good map for this is pvk_siege_longship_beta6. As an archer, go to the window to the castle door's right. There, you should be able to shoot at the vikings that are trying to break in. With some skill and help from fellow archers, you'll be able to shoot 3 down in 10 seconds. Also, although crossbow kills don't count, kills made with the longbow special does, so if you can find a large crowd of enemies, launch the special into their midst. You'll probably get 1 to 2 kills with the special, and then you can shoot down anyone who's weakened but not dead.

'''How to:''' The shortsword comes in handy when your teammates seem to be blocking all of your shots, and for finishing off enemies that rush you before you can land a killing arrow. It deals more damage than the bow can in close-range, as well. Ambushing people with it helps if they keep running away or avoiding you. If you're looking for kills in a fair fight, switch to the longbow and flick uncharged arrows at your opponents if they back off briefly to weaken them safely (before you/they re-engage dangerously).

'''Difficulty:''' Intermediate

'''Difficulty:''' Easy
  
'''How To:''' It is recommended to use the longbow for this achievement, as it is much easier to aim with than the crossbow and can shoot rapidly. 100ft is a pretty big distance, so a good map for this is pvk_300_BoT_beta3. It has a huge amount of open space, so you can get a very good shot. The easiest method for doing this is standing right outside Hot Gates (the territory) and shooting randomly into the viking's spawn. With a few tries you're almost sure to get it.
+
'''How To:''' The longbow is well suited to achieving this, so long as you make the effort to attempt the long shots necessary, and pay attention to how your arrows arc at such a distance, it's as good as got.

'''Difficulty:''' Easy
+
'''Difficulty:''' Intermediate
  
'''How to:''' Parrots are very fast and move around a lot, so it's near impossible to hit them up close with the longbow. The perfect moment to shoot would be at the moment of release, when the parrot will fly in a straight line at you. It is also possible to shoot parrots that are attacking other people. Just aim for the person like a normal kill and you'll probably hit the parrot.
+
'''How to:''' If a Sharpshooter is using his pistol, you can beat him. If he uses his rifle, it's anybody's game. If he headshots you, you're dead. Avoid rifles, let teammates engage them to draw their fire, and play on maps with predictable spawn locations so they can't spawn next to you and take your head off before you know what's happening.

'''How to:''' Due to the longbow special's massive range, this achievement is actually quite easy to get. Just shoot your special into a large fight and odds are you'll kill 2.

'''How to:''' Your victims will instinctively jump to put more distance between themselves and where they think your arrow will go. Wait for the jump, snap your sights on them, and shoot 'em down. You may want to use the crossbow to deal extra damage, but either bow deals plenty of damage regardless.
