Kill an enemy with the javelin from 80ft.

'''Difficulty:''' Intermediate
  
'''How to:''' Since the javelin does impressive damage, it usually kills any target that is hurt from 80 ft. In bt_island, 80 ft is about from the Pirate booty area to the entrance of the cave where vikings come in. Of course, while in combat you can't measure it very accurately, so my suggestion is that if you see a crowded battle, take some steps back until you think it is like 90 ft away, start to charge the javelin by walking forward, and throw it at the battle when it's fully charged (remember the arc of the javelin).
+
'''How to:''' These things deal insane damage, you'd be crazy not to at least try to start (almost) every fight with one, which naturally inclines one towards throwing them absurd distances anyway. The only caveat for this achievement is that you would want to arrive late to a fight to throw a javelin at somebody who could probably be finished off by your other, less ammo-limited weapons.
Another good map is pvk_300_BoT_beta3. Charge up your javelin while running and then throw it into the knight's territory. With a little luck you'll get a kill.
+
  
Other tactic : Find an AFK person in an open area where you can get more than 80 ft away from him, make him bleeding profusely or about to be pushing daisies, and go finish him with the javelin. Of course this is for the unskilled people.
+
You might try Cara, as people tend to forget their surroundings when contesting the territories, which can sometimes be seen from a considerable distance. The Last Team Standing maps are large enough, if you can survive long enough to be one of the few players left, and happen to be on the other side of the map to everybody else, and still have a spare javelin.

Pinegrove's a good choice, too. Stick to the back of the map (with the high bridge) where there's fewer trees.

Aim for the people with low HP, archers and skirmishers work the best.

On the other Booty maps, capturing neutral chests is more your style.

Kill an enemy with the javelin from 80ft.

Difficulty: Intermediate

How to: These things deal insane damage, you'd be crazy not to at least try to start (almost) every fight with one, which naturally inclines one towards throwing them absurd distances anyway. The only caveat for this achievement is that you would want to arrive late to a fight to throw a javelin at somebody who could probably be finished off by your other, less ammo-limited weapons.

You might try Cara, as people tend to forget their surroundings when contesting the territories, which can sometimes be seen from a considerable distance. The Last Team Standing maps are large enough, if you can survive long enough to be one of the few players left, and happen to be on the other side of the map to everybody else, and still have a spare javelin. Pinegrove's a good choice, too. Stick to the back of the map (with the high bridge) where there's fewer trees.

Difficulty: Intermediate

How to: Lurk around fights occurring near corners in corridors, and take paths wide so you can stick people fighting on the inside track to the inside wall.

Pvk2 gestir kill special 3x.jpg Souvlaki

Kill 3 enemies with a single spear dash special.

Difficulty: Very Hard

How to: The simple fact that this achievement requires three kills makes it an order of magnitude less likely that you will unlock this achievement at any given time. Your best bet is charging into a fight that another Viking already charged into, but didn't kill anybody in. At least enemies are less likely to be knocked clear of the spear as it skewers them, compared to the Huscarl's special.
