Achievement Handout!

Hello, there are 2 ways to get the achievement, an easy way and a hard way.

Easy way
You need to complete the campaign on normal and then send me a message and I will help you get the achievement. Takes about 1 minute after you join my lobby. There are a couple things you need to know to be sure you will unlock the achievement.
Thank you SSCP for finding the method.

Games with Gold update
Warning! I have met some gamers who couldn't unlock the achievement because they transferred their unfinished save file to another 360 console and then finished their normal difficulty playthrough. I can't tell you how this works with transferring a unfinished save file to the Xbox One. I recommend that you start a new game if you want to be sure that the achievement will unlock.

Rumors are that a coop savefile only works if you are the host, not for invited players.
A coop save file works too, for all players. Thank you Jv freakgamer for the confirmation.

Jv freakgamer: "I was the host the whole playthrough. I died dozens of times but usually respawned before anything happened. On mission 6, Hip Shot, my friend got killed and I got to the helo before he respawned and when I checked his list, he didn't get the achievement for finishing mission 6. But everything else we did unlocked, including this Hardcore achievement."

Hard way
Try and follow the video guide by They Call Me Jones. I did this solo and some missions were a pain in the ass, even while watching a video walkthrough. You have my respect if you can pull it off, it is very frustrating.


Enemy placement is different sometime. In missions 6, for example, I was never able to leave the fuel depot without being spotted. Most difficult missions in my opinion: 3, 6, 7 and 11.
