How to Acquire
This achievement/trophy requires Corvo Attano to kill a tallboy with nothing but his sword. One of the easiest and most common ways to accomplish this task is to use Blink to gain the height and access to the tallboy's body and melee it like a normal enemy. Bend Time in conjunction with Blink and Agility makes this accolade even simpler. Taking out a tallboy via drop assassination is also possible, given sufficient height and good timing.
- In Return to the Tower, one tallboy walks underneath the waterlock bridge as part of its route, making it easy to reach either through Blink or drop assassination.
- In The Flooded District, tallboys take regular routes as they patrol the Rudshore Gate. There are many high points on a few destroyed buildings from which Corvo can perform a drop assassination. He can also do this from the balcony next to the first wall of light.
- In The Loyalists, the same strategies can be used against the tallboy patrolling outside the Hound Pits Pub, via one of the pub's second-floor windows.
