This achievement can be done by yourself, you do not need other players present to get this achievement. You will need to be in the multiplayer section of the game and then from there you can attempt to search for a game or you can create your own game.

Mode: Co-op Elimination
Type: Helicopter Hunt

Select the M107 Sniper sniper rifle, it is going to be more effective then a machine gun. Now before you even play understand that you will not complete this achievement in one match.

When you start they should be one helicopter attacking you and after you take one down more and more will come after, at one point there were five helicopters attacking me. Be mindful when you shoot at them with your gun, ten shots to the belly of the helicopter should be enough to take them down. Don't unload an entire clip at the enemy in one second but dont take all day to let off a single round. I used a three shot rule when attacking. When the enemy was in my sights I would let off three quick rounds and then wait for another clear shot.

If you die don't worry you'll respawn and you should get full ammo again and just keep patient when engaging the enemy. If you don't make it all the way through just reload the map.

There is no perfect position, you can hold up by the domes which give you good cover. However when you have good cover you usually have a bad firing angle. You can keep reloading the game type if you die so as long as you get one kill per match you are good!

The achievement will pop after your 20th kill while your in game. If you are unsure how many helicopters you need to take out you can go into the Extras feature via the multi player screen and check out your achievement progress.

If you have any questions don't hesitate to send me a message on TA or Live.

Note: You can edit the settings so that you can have infinite re spawns and have 21 enemy helicopters attack you but I do not know if this will count for your achievement. It will change over to a custom match type. I'd suggest just reloading the normal Helicopter Hunt match a few times till you get the achievement.

Edit: It has been confirmed that you can do this on custom.

Using the M60 may be a better choice according to a few gamers.
