    Platypus OwlHeads up:

    In case you miss a shot, reload from last checkpoint. I did this a couple times (was too impatient) but still got the achievement at the end.

    redjarmanaw man, first playthrough I know for a fact I didn't miss anyone I shot at, but during the fade out at the end I spammed shots everywhere :/

    Mission 4 : Struck Down

    At the beginning of this Mission we are introduced to the Remote Sniper to locate Ajax.

    We will use the Remote Sniper 4 times during this mission.

    When you aim on target, the reticle will turn orange indicating a kill shot.

    Many of the enemies do not move too far so wait until you are confident the shot will hit before firing.

    I did miss on the second to last area trying to be cocky, but when I loaded last checkpoint the achievement still unlocked at the end of the mission

    During the Stuck Down mission, the first time you take control of the Remote Sniper is just before you breach the room to find Ajax. The second time you will be after you leave the building to take out some enemies with launchers. The third time you will be exiting the building with Ajax and the last time you will be escaping in a chopper. You must kill some of the enemies with the sniper, if you are unsure if you are going to hit them or not, find another target who is standing still.

    This is on the mission - Struck Down -

    This was easy.

    Right at the end of the mission you will be told to use the Remote Sniper to clear the enemies so your teammates can advance to the helicopter. Simply take your time and kill all the enemies (line up the shot and wait till the reticule is yellow before shooting). After they are dead you will have to make a run for the helicopter.

    Once on the helicopter you will be told to use the Remote Sniper again. This time enemy vehicles will appear, destroy them with the sniper then the mission will end giving you the achievo.

    For the Waste Not Achievement, all you have to do is make sure each of your shots form the remote sniper hit a person or a vehicle. This is not too difficult because most of the enemies tend to stand still. As far as I know you either can't fail while looking through the sniper or it takes a while. So I would suggest taking your time to line up each shot and you should be able to get it without much of an issue

    You are introduced to the Remote Sniper to locate Ajax.

    Time your shots carefully and make sure the target center is orange before you shoot to avoid missing a shot. If so, reload last checkpoint to try again. Achievement/trophy pops if successful.

    Simply load up campaign mission 4 "Struck Down". There will be four times when you operate the remote sniper (the first time at the start of the level does not count as the gun is not loaded).

    Time your shots, make sure that you don't miss, the enemies tend to stay still so precisely line them up, keep your reticle on them for a few seconds to ensure you will not miss. I tend to rely on the reticle glowing orange to make sure that I am targetting correctly.

    Don't stress about taking out every single enemy, I took my time shooting and my teammates did contribute to the killing of the enemies. In the first section I only killed one enemy and the rest were finished off by the team.

    Listen to your teammates, at the end of the 4th sequence I even stopped shooting when the enemies were still aplenty because Hesh was announcing they had left and I could physically see the helicopter flying away so I seized shooting.

    I created this video to help:



    Hope this helps
