    There are two main pirate hostage situations, one in which the pirates are actively fighting their enemy and the other in which they are bound and kneeling with guns pointed at them. You can only get this trophy with the bound and kneeling pirates. If you go up to a group of fighting pirates the dancers will try and break up the fight and the "distract" option does not become available.

    I found the easiest way to accomplish this is to play Sequence 3 Memory 2 "Now Hiring." The mission is rescuing pirate hostages. I found two ways to do this in this mission.

    Option 1: In the first method, you jump down from the balcony you're on and go straight ahead towards a group of dancers (next to the house in the courtyard you start in with a Union Jack hanging from it). Hire them and make your way up and to the right towards the church on the hill. There are 2 main paths up to the church, one of which is closer and approaches the hostages from the side. DO NOT use this path. Instead go further up to other path. You'll notice as you approach it the church will be on your right and another group of dancers on your left. Using the dancers you've already hired, approach the 4 enemies guarding the main path up to the church. They are right on border of the hostile (red) zone. As soon as you target one of them and push L2 to distract, go back to the other dancer group behind you, hire them, and walk past the distracted guards to the 2 guards pointing their guns at the pirate hostages. Send the dancers to distract the guards and dive into the hay pile on the left and wait for them to walk away a bit. Approach the pirates and free them (note: it took seemingly longer than usual for this trophy to pop, so just wait a little bit).

    Option 2: In the same mission, ignore the first group of dancers you see and run up and to the left to the hostages that are on the right side of the large fortress/castle. Rush up to the guards on the edge of the hostile (red) zone, double assassinate them, and take out the 3 sentries above you. You will most likely be spotted and the hostages will be killed. If so, avenge your brethren and kill the 2 guards that shot the hostages. Leave this area and go rescue 1 or 2 other groups of hostages nearby until the hostages respawn at the location by the fort. On the road connecting the hostages near the church on the hill and the road to the fort is a group of dancers (closer to the church, they are the 2nd group of dancers hired from the first option). Lead them down the road to the hostages by the fort and it should be unguarded except for the 2 guards pointing guns at the hostages. Walk up behind them, send the dancers to distract them (L2), and duck behind the tents to the right until they move away. Walk up and free the hostages.
