    Info Prior to Watching: This achievement can be unlocked on the mission "night shift" at the very beginning of the campaign. The lights can be seen in the parking lot across the street from your sniper position. Account for the left to right swinging motion of the lights and aim slightly above the visible light (differs depending on the difficulty mode). Use the video as a reference as where to place your sniper crosshairs and use the left-stick to stabilize your shots in this position. If you miss a shot reload the checkpoint. Also I found it easier if I went for the back shots first because they are the hardest to make so if you miss them you dont have to keep remaking the easy shots.

    At the beginning of Mission 9: Night Shift, your teammate will tell you to shoot out the 4 hanging lights. Take your time to aim slightly above them (between 1-2 crosshair dots), hold your breath, and wait for them to sway back and forth to take your shot. If you hit all 4 of them with only 4 tries, this achievement is yours. However, if you miss, just reload your checkpoint and try again!

    FiriathI have to agree. This video helped me most, because you precisely mentioned where to place the crosshairs. Thanks!

    I didn't see this posted anywhere else.

    When you start the mission, press Start, go to "OPTIONS," then go to "VIDEO." In that section go to brightness, and slide the bar all the way to the left. This will decrease the brightness of the lights, making it easier to see the light fixtures. There won't be near as much glare.

    The first time I tried, I missed like 3 shots before hitting one, then I did this and got all 4 in a four on my second try.

    Pretty simple overall. At the beginning of the level "Night Shift" you are instructed to shoot out four hanging lights with the infrared sniper. They are to the lower right when you look over the edge. The lights all sway a little bit, but if you click in the left analog stick to hold your breath and steady your shot, it shouldn't be too hard to hit all four without missing. You DO NOT need to account for any bullet drop from the long distance of the shot, at least I didn't when I attempted this on the "easy" difficulty. Just be sure you are aiming for the physical light fixture, which can be tough to make out because of the infrared scope.

    If you miss, just pause and reload the checkpoint and try again.

    Extremely easy. Use your left stick to hold your breath. This makes the sight steady and then aim for the top of the light. Where the wire meets the light is where you need to shoot. Wheres no wind and no bullet drop so its a straight shot and its right at the beginning of the level so if you have to restart, no big deal. Boom, 30 gamer score richer!
