    Pretty much what the other solutions say, except with a video ;)

    Plug in a second controller and set them both to veteran difficulty on the Milehigh Jack Op. Then change the Op to Stay Sharp and get 17 kills on it with each controller.

    You will get these 2 achievements using this method:

    Locallndian3Can confirm it still works at 11/2/2021
    However the golden stars appear to show the game difficulty is at a regular as shown by one star but the achievements will still work
    Overall good and simple guide

    Start 'Spec-Ops' in Splitscreen (playing yourself as the 2nd pad is fine)

    Go into MILEHIGH JACK and change both players to 'Veteran Difficulty'.

    Now 'Change Op' to STAY SHARP.

    Complete the easy assault course level, get 17 kills each for another achievement and both this and 50/50 will pop.
    Or just run through as player 1 if you only need this achievement.

    diseased maniacWow- I figured I would never be able to evenly split kills or play a level on hardened/veteran without being downed in a spec ops game- too much chaos. I got these two achievements in no time with the method you described. AWESOME!!! Thanks!

    Name: No Assistance Required
    Mode: Co-op (Special Ops)
    Difficulty: 4/10

    My achievement glitched on me, and I will explain how you can too if it has yet to be patched. Basically, load up a special ops lobby with a friend on, let's say, Mile-High Jack. Make sure the both of you select the difficulty to Hardened or Veteran in the lobby. Now, DO NOT START THE GAME! Right now, your screen should show you are selecting the mission of Mile High Jack on Hardened or Veteran. Now instead of starting that mission up, switch the mission to the very first one. The game should register the mission as you playing it on Hardened/Veteran, but the mission does not allow you to select a difficulty, because the start you earn on the mission are solely based on how quick you finish the course. Just play through the mission, and it is impossible to down yourself unless you are an incredibly talented individual who gets shot by cardboard cutouts. Try to finish the mission with at least two stars just to be safe (I finished with two and got the achievement). Hopefully, the achievement should have popped up by now!

    Please leave a comment on whether this worked for you or not. If it didn't, I will revise a whole different solution.

    ACBlenderFinished the mission in 1:35 and still got the achievement lol. Thanks.

    No, you can only do this to missions you can't set the difficulty for. Also, you don't three star this mission when you do the glitch, you just get this achievement. The only possible way to get three starts for a special ops mission is to either beat the set time limit or finish it on the hardest difficulty. Sorry if you were confused.
