WATCH THE VIDEO!
Info Prior to Watching: Go to the map "Dome" and make it to the end of round 5 without spending any money (simply knife or shotgun all the enemies). This should leave you with about $12k. You need to go to the indoor air support before the round begins and buy a predator missile. Then kill all the infantry that filter in. After that take out your predator missile and take out the closest helicopter. Then run as close to the wall as possible as to avoid getting shot through the ceiling, by another predator missile, and repeat the process and the achievement should be yours.

This achievement is a lot easier than one might think, especially if you have a friend you're playing with. The reason I say this is because all damage taken during or before the first helicopter goes down does not go against getting the achievement.

Start a survival mission on Resistance.

Before the round 6 starts, grab a predator missile (2,500 credits) and make sure you have a few hundred rounds handy. The two-story building by the air support vendor provides good cover -- head in there. After the round starts, concentrate on shooting down the chopper with your primary. Damage taken during this time does not disqualify you from the achievement. After the first helicopter is down, avoid getting shot by the second and nest yourself within the kitchen of the building. Launch the missile and take it down. Wham, bam, thank you ma'am.

If you have a friend, he (or she, to be fair) can run around and draw the chopper's fire if you find yourself struggling with it.

Had this bug out on me. I did this solo with Resistance as the map, and simply stood under the little archway near the start with the M4A1. The archway gives you cover from above and the choppers will just hover over it. I got near one side but still underneath the arch and aimed up, peppering the choppers with the assault rifle as they repositioned (only shooting when their tail faced me) but ducked back in when they spun around to fire. I did screw up and got lit up hard by one of the choppers (I DEFINITELY got hit), figured I screwed myself out of the achievement so I just killed off the chopper to finish the wave but the achievement popped anyway. Maybe some experimentation could be done by somebody to confirm if this achievement is buggy (but in a good way)? Either way, this can be done EASILY with just an assault rifle, the key is to be under that archway and only shoot the choppers when they come into view but have their ass end facing you. Once they start turning, just step back and reload, then chip away again. When you get back to the middle of that arch, they will move to the middle too, when you go to the edge, they'll reposition to get a shot at you. Just use that to manipulate the choppers' movement.

I found the easiest map to do this with was Village.

Make sure you have at least 5000 points by the time the 5th or 6th wave starts.

Your killstreak center (The area where you buy the pred missles at) has a spot that is covered by a rock overhead. Buy your pred missile and hide behind the rock that's at that station. You should be safe from the helicopters, so call in a pred missile. Here's the thing, you can only buy one pred missile at a time. So you're going to have to run out from behind the rock , but check the minimap to make sure that helicopter is behind you. When that happens buy your second pred missile and run behind the rock again, and destroy the second helicopter. The achievement should pop as soon as this happens.

Also. You CAN be hit be a helicopter before you take one of them out. It happened to me, and it still popped.

Easier than you all think! Just shoot chopper one until it shows black smoke, then shoot chopper two until black smoke. Then, just finish them both off without taking damage AFTER killing the first one. Any damage before doesn't matter.

Take the Map: Resistance (first map) and get yourself some money.

Kill every enemy in the first two rounds with your knife, (you will get the knive achivement by the way) and wait until you can buy a guided missile (air strike support crate). Then try to buy a assault gun like the M4A1 in the weapons shop.

The key is to survive until 2 chopppers arrive (for me in round 6) and then you hide under the big brigde/house combination you find easy on the map (with gaps left/right).

Calm down, take the guided missile you bought and kill the first chopper AFTER he fly over your position, take your time and shot him down.

The second one you can kill with your M4A1, just take you time, let him fire (you can hear the railgun sound), then you fire a few shots, then let him fire...and so on. Take it easy, don´t haste and the achivement is yours.

Plops right after the second kill.

The easiest map to do this is Dome. I won this achievement while playing on Dome. The easiest way to do this is at least have more than $2500, then camp near the air support, buy a predator missile, use it to destroy the helicopter, then do the same thing again and the achievement will pop up.
