'''How To''': Pretty self-explanatory. Just join a game and play as a Huscarl. Remember that it recquires a FULL round, so if you joined mid-game you'll have to wait for the next round to start. The round must also last at least 5 minutes.

'''How To:''' Aiming with the axes is pretty easy, try to throw your axes at open spaces like the pirates spawn at bt_island. The best time to do this is when there are a lot of people together, go back and start throwing axes. If you're lucky you will get a kill. Another good map is pvk_300_BoT_beta3. Just throw axes into the knight's territory randomly and odds are you'll get the achieve.

'''How To:''' Aim at doorways and tunnels, people sneaking off with chests who are only listening for threats close-by, and not looking for axes coming from way downtown, and people stopping to type after killing somebody.

Kill a Pirate and a Knight with a single axe swing.

Difficulty: Impossible

How to: The axe has a decent enough range to make hitting two people a reasonable task with a horizontal swing, but killing two people? Let alone a Pirate and a Knight?

This achievement just can't be engineered short of deliberately farming it with a couple of friends (or friendly strangers). The best strategy is to remember that it exists, so you never miss an opportunity to try and get it.
