What exactly is meant by "perform 50 combo kills in fights"? Is a combo kill when you kill a guard/enemy just by repeatedly attacking with your sword (X button)?

essentially yes. a combo kill is when you hit attack again right after your sword makes contact.. you'll know it's a combo because it'll be an instant kill that will look cool. One of those things where he'll kick them then stab them in the back or something, not just hitting them with his sword.

I thought those "instant kill" animations happened just for counter kills?

If you are having trouble with this achievement..just go into the training arena and keep replaying the combo fight til you reach the required figure for the achievement

nope.. they happen for counters and for combo's

They arent as flashy for the combo's as the counters tho

Yeah, I understand now. It's all about the timing, you have to quickly tap X as soon as your blade clashes against their sword (or rips through their flesh). I finished the game before getting the achievement, but i'll go back and get it with honor, against guards or knights in the kingdom.

you mean a leap of faith? go up a view point, or just a high point in game with hay and hold RT and hit A

and yes @ the thread, i have the same problem, i cant get the achievement ;(

also i think a combo kill = the counter kills you have to press X for to kill the foe.

Took me a while to realise what this achievement meant but from reading this thread and realising what it involves i think i should be able to do it http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

For people that still don't get it...

'Counter Kill' is when you are holding right trigger and an enemy lunges at you to attack and you press 'X'. It does a little fancy video of you killing them sometimes.

Combo Kill' is entirely different, rather than you having to wait for them to strike before hitting 'X', you simply target an enemy press 'X' once and as soon as your sword makes contact with them press 'X' again really fast (just once though)

Hope that helps people <3
