When you're hiding on the boat, pop out and shoot the propane bottle on the stairs next on the right. This will trigger the cutscene of the chain breaking and Max jumping from the boat. The propane bottle will have exploded before you enter bullet time, simply kill the three or four guys left over and this should pop.

Chapter 5 Checkpoint 6? When I loaded that, it took me back to the snowy street of New York fighting outside. But last night when I was trying to get the achievement, I popped the barrel and finished off the few guys and it never popped up. I have it on FREE AIM the whole game. Lot of people on YouTube have been saying that it just does not want to pop up for them either..weird?

Unless you clear your cache and play offline to get rid of the update the gas tank explosion wont count as kills,for some reason it seems they patched it with the update even though that seems to be the only way of getting 7 kills because you dont even have time to aim at 7 men let alone shoot them

It's not the only way, I just did it after a couple of tries without using the explosion, just set the difficulty to easy and try to get a shot of at each of their heads, don't wait for them to die just assume you've killed each one and move onto the next. Work your way anti clockwise from the guy on the bottom right

Gas tank works. Shoot it when you first pop up. It should expolde right when you enter Bullet Time. Just clean up the remaining four guys.

agreed, #7 u must have missed someone or shot the barrel at the wrong time, i jumped the gun my first few times and screwed it up, but waiting til they all bunched together makes it near impossible to mess it up!

Tried this 3 different ways now. Even tried removing the patch and doing it. Nothing works and the achievement never pops up..... FUUUCCCKKK

Ok, created an account to post this, I tried about 20 times the other day to get it no luck. I loaded up Chapter 5, Checkpoint 6, started me with the uzi or whatever, as soon as I gained control came up and shot the barrel then killed the remaining four, and the achievement popped, even though I did the same thing over and over and over a day or 2 ago.
So if it's not working for you, try doing it by chapter select

Just for the record, I tried this about 20 times (without shooting the barrel first) and it wouldn't pop up. Then I tried shooting the explosive barrel first (before they know you are there) and killed them all and got it first time. The barrel didn't even kill anyone, it just seemed that I had to blow it for the cheevo to pop.

What helped me was wait for the men carrying the crate to get next to guy holding the gun on his shoulder when they are lined up kill all three before the short cutscene starts. Then when in bullet time finish off the other 4 and pop achieve unlocked! Hope this helps.

Shot the propane tank before they know i was there. It exploded during the short cut scene before max jumps. It killed 2. All i had to do was shoot the rest and it popped.

After a bunch of tries with no success, trying shooting the tank and shooting the crate guys first. I went back a made sure that I hand the mini uzi equiped and waited for the crate guys to move up with the rest...popped first try without the need for the gas canister.
Much easier with the uzi over the colt!

The most annoying Achievement in the game.
Tried loads of times without shooting the barrel, no achievement. Tried loads of times WITH the barrel, no achievement. Deleted the update and played offline with and without the barrel, no Achievement.
Finally thought "s*d it!" popped up and shot two of them before the jump, finished off the rest in the proper way and got the Achievement. Not quite what it tells you to do.
Anyway, my point is - shoot as many as you can before they shoot the chain and you'll get it easily.

Try shooting the two guys carrying the crate at the bottom of the screen first before Max jumps off of the boat, then you will have less to kill during the bullet time sequence and it will count toward the achievement.

i shot about 3 before the trigger to jump and achievement popped thanks to Skweezle method.

What I did is I waited until the guys holding the crates were closer to the guy screwing with the boat and the one behind him with a gun. Once they were clumped together, just spray with a submachine and kill the group of 3 on the right. This was a pretty easy method for me, as the propane tank wasnt working.

Very easy if u use the propane tank method

If it would let ya change to the Uzi while on that boat it would be a lot easier...

It actually does work if you shoot the propane tank. I just got the achievement like that.

Can also confirm the propane tank method still works, just got it first try doing this today.

Wednesday, August 29, 2012 @ 10:23:33 AM
I am going to have to go in through chapter select, This sh!t is just retarded. I have done this over 50 times with different methods. I will confirm once I have tried chapter select.
|Comment #32 by flechetteXXX|
Wednesday, August 29, 2012 @ 05:30:58 PM
The propane method does in fact NOT work. If it works for you you probably dont have the patch. As #31 I have probably done this close to 50 times and still have not got this to pop for me with or without propane.
|Comment #33 by flechetteXXX|
Wednesday, August 29, 2012 @ 05:34:10 PM
I can also confirm the method Skweezle II suggests does NOT work.
|Comment #34 by flechetteXXX|
Wednesday, August 29, 2012 @ 05:42:30 PM
The tank method DOES work! For anyone still having trouble I figured out what is happening. You must shoot the tank RIGHT BEFORE the cut scene so it explodes while you are IN Bullet Time. If you shoot it to early it will explode during the cutscene therefore you arnt killing all 7 DURING the actual Bullet Time.
|Comment #35 by flechetteXXX|
Wednesday, August 29, 2012 @ 05:49:09 PM
OK NEVER MIND! I take that back as well. This shit is fucked. Idk. I have literally done everything I possibly could about 10 times each and still nothing. I just killed all 7 men 3 times in a row post patch without even shooting the tank I even walked over to confirm all 7 dead bodies and still NOTHING! This is getting stupid irritating.
|Comment #36 by PsychoticMunkey|
Thursday, August 30, 2012 @ 07:43:08 AM
Tank does work, I have patch, but I had to go through Chapter Select. Playing through the game does not work. I just got achievement yesterday, 1st time on chapter select.

Delete the updates and go offline

@39 great suggestion! Did you even read any of the other comments? Dumbass. Reading through comments it appears that this achievements finnicky unless you use chapter select and keep trying different methods.
|Comment #41 by Sab3rOne|
Friday, November 02, 2012 @ 08:12:42 PM
Just to let you guys know I just got this on the first try. I was able to shoot the explode-able tank first which triggered the cutscene (just like the description says). I used chapter select and have not deleted any updates/patches. I didnt try during the actual campaign, just got around to it while cleaning up misc achievements.

I gave up the first time. Only had a pistol, and the barrel method wasn't working. When I came back an hour later, the game loaded me with the Micro 9mm for some reason. Barrell method still didn't work, and neither did shooting a few before the cutscene. But I managed to actually get all 7 in one dive and it popped.
|Comment #43 by stockfish|

Just got it. With barrel method, so they didn't fix it... Btw, I play Online, and my game is up to date.

Ok, for real. Here is how to do it. First change into Leisure Suit Max Pane. Grab a martini and a flotation device, backhand spring off the boat, somersault into bullet time, then throw out some Brazilian candy to all 7 guys. They will be so surprised that they will take a vote, which is obviously unanimous in favor of you getting the achievement. Easy day.

I could have kept trying this a lot and not getting it... I thought it was at the end of the chapter, when Max is in the boat with Passos flying over the last boat with Fabiana -_-
