    Furr E NutsGotta say, 11 years later, THIS video guide WORKS for the 360 version of this game. THANK YOU. Had been struggling with different ways to camp out and hold off enemies while waiting for the helo to land. Kept dying. The back tree area seen here is the best. I thought I had a bad location and CP when I did this last year. I hadn't played it since but wanted to get past this mission. Finally, I figured let see if this video would work. I was on the other side out in the radiation field next to the pool building. I was able to run to the back tree area as the last enemy helos started to arrive. Got to the back tree area as seen in the video. All I used was the AK47 rather than the sniper. Im not great with sniper guns. Started using double taps as enemies came around the corner of the bumper car building. I got hit by a couple of enemies that appeared to be shooting from the far side of the bumper car area. Just had to duck and take them out quickly. I only had a few enemies that got kind close to me. I noticed that some enemies would randomly wander around the corner of the bumper car building and not shoot at me. Like they didn't know where to go. Just got to keep these in view and take them out when you can. Finally, as the friendly helo started to arrive, i had to take a a couple of enemies on the Ferris wheel area, then moved forward to the side of the bumper car building as seen in the video. As I hear the fighting start to intensify with the friendies starting there work I moved up behind the Ferris wheel. I got hit once but was ok. I bolted to the captain grabbed him, got it a couple of times as I started moving towards the helo. I used the middle ticket booth and moved behind it for some cover to the right side and then towards the helo. I started getting hit more as I moved up the helo ramp. Was ok though. As I put the captain down, I started lobbing grenades out the back to blow up enemies. Helo took off. DONE!!! This was actually easier than I thought. Finally, I can continue to complete the campaign.

    I struggled to do this in any of the ways suggested - instead I lay prone in the 'ticket booth' nearest to the dodgems and ferris wheel and positioned myself in the middle of the booth so I couldn't be seen by any enemies and while there you cover enough of the room to be able to be within range of any grenades which come in meaning you can throw them back out immediately.

    Once the chopper arrives and you have 30 seconds left I threw a flashbang against the wheel so that it bounced off and flashed as many enemies as possible then ran up to the hill for McMillan - once you have him you have a lot of health it seems as I walked past a terrorist shooting at me constantly and I wasn't killed. All possible in the last 30 seconds.

    Note - I didn't kill ANYONE with my gun while using this method. I just placed the claymores around the surrounding area before the enemies rushed through.

    LUNGS 66Works well,I run into the little pay shed after the helicopters showed up (where my checkpoint was from)I crouched towards the door,about 3 grenades come in to the box,and I just threw them back.Also the rest just exploded outside.Took me one try to do this.Also I dont think you can die after you pick up the injured one,how red my screen went...good info/help

    CptShort97Sorry this doesn't work at all for me. Either one of two things happen. I die to a grenade that doesn't even have a grenade indicator so I've no idea where it is. Or so many grenades land in the booth at once that I literally can't throw them away fast enough. I am at least 2 dozen attempts in and I've yet to even come close, I usually die when the chopper is still 4,000m away.

    I assume I'm doing something wrong because all the other comments are positive but I can't imagine why this isn't working. I've tried prone, crouching, staying in the middle, staying near the door, staying under the little desk thing. I've tried sniping enemies as they rappel, i've tried leaving the enemies alone. Nothing is helping it's the same result every time :(

    All ghillied up should be a piece of cake if you follow his instructions only bit that is tricky is the convoy that walks up to you.
    This is one of the hardest levels (one shot one kill) on veteran heres a vid on how to do it:
    also in the mission all ghillied up near the last sections try to switch one of your weaps with an automatic makes the escape a lot easier.

    credit to the guy.

    Near the end of One Shot, One Kill, when you get to the part where you must prepare for extraction, you need to toss some C4 around the white picket fence and put your claymores somewhere around the bumper cars and Ferris wheel. Then hide by the corner of the building by where you get the second intel in this section. The AI will almost always go towards the ferris wheel, and you can easily take care of the few who don't. The grenades that occassionaly come towards you won't hurt you (but you can move away if you feel safer doing so). Once the chopper lands, blow the C4, and sprint to Captain MacMillan. You will get shot a little, but you will make it to him and back to the chopper.

    I had a lot of trouble getting through this section and tried many other solutions, but the other solutions just didn't seem to work for me. Thankfully, Deadly Minx told me about the following video by L0stH3r0

    After struggling with the end of One Shot, One Kill for what seemed like forever, I watched this video and got it on the first time trying it.

    If there's any interest, I can cut together a video of the entire level

    an easy way to complete the first part of one shot one kill (after u kill the guy with the sniper and encounter your first group of enemies) is actually the most easy thing int he world. i spent literally hours trying to beat them to get to the first checkpoint which is inside the first building. i finally looked up vids on how to do it and it made me lauqh... wut u have to do is run around the tank and behind those three buses. u will immediately encounter a large group of enemies coming at u. so as ur running behind the last bus, throw a flashbanq into the enemies coming at u, and run riqht past them... DO NOT SHOOT THEM... just run riqht past. immediatley after u run past them u will encounter another qroup of enemies. do the same thinq with the flashbanq, and run into the building for the first checkpoint. the rest is easy until u go into the room with the two quys and the dog. wut i did there wuz put him down, and throw a grenade to the riqht to kill the first enemy standing there, than move Macmillan into the adjacent room to kill the second quy, and u kill the dog easily.
    for the walkthrouqh of how to do the last part of the level look at the video below. even thouqh he did it on hardened, it worked for me on my first try doinq exactly wut he did. the only thinq i did different wuz when he put the one c4 in front of his camping spot i also put 2 claymores. i also put 3 claymores behind me for some extra protection. however, i didnt c a single person till i had to get Macmillan (however, just in case, wut i did wuz keep out an assault rifle the whole time looking around constantly.) i got mine from a dead enemy riqht before the helicopter takes out Macmillan's legs. when the heli came for us i turned the corner and ran into 3 quys standinq at the gate, shooting at them, not me, and i easily killed all 3. that wuz the only time i shot tht entire part of the level, and the only difference i saw between his vid was he was playing on hardened, and i played on veteran. hope this helps :)

    * note: i did not make this video
