    Ack Ack Achievement/Trophy Guide

    During the second mission 'Operation Cobra' you will come to a point where you will man a AA Gun and will need to shoot down planes that are firing upon you. The objective here is to destroy all 20 Planes (and no, this isn't as bad as the Battlefield One achievement) and can be done by restarting checkpoints if needed, however if you miss one and there is a checkpoint you will need to restart the mission.

    Thankfully, there is a pattern to the planes and it is as follows:
    3 RIGHT - 3 MIDDLE - 2 LEFT - 2 LEFT - 3 MIDDLE - 2 RIGHT - 2 LEFT - 2 LEFT - 1 MIDDLE

    Note: This achievement for Xbox didn't unlock for me until AFTER I completed the Mission so pay extra attention to if you actually saw them blow up or were just on flames and if you're not sure simply restart the checkpoint.

    Here is a video guide for you.

    pezboybenI agree, I wasn't going for this achievement I was just trying to survive and I'm pretty sure I didn't hit them all. Still gave you an upvote though, just reporting my findings.

    SeitzzVery strange this one. Wasn't sure if I hit all or not, thought I did and it popped at the end.

    GerbasgamerYeah definitely got even though I missed a couple of planes.
    I even got a checkpoint right when I missed a plane so I couldn't get that one and missed one or two more during the final wave.

    This achievement is from the second mission of the campaign, Operation Cobra. Partway through the mission you will come to an AA (anti-aircraft) gun which you'll need to use to shoot down enemy planes. There are 20 planes in total and the achievement description states you must destroy all of them, but some players have reported unlocking this achievement even after missing several planes completely. Still, try to get them all just to be safe!

    Here's the order they come in:
    3 RIGHT
    3 MIDDLE
    2 LEFT (overhead/left)
    2 LEFT
    3 MIDDLE
    2 RIGHT
    2 LEFT
    2 LEFT
    1 MIDDLE (comes very fast!)


    Remember to lead your targets and keep in mind that sometimes they'll crash by themselves after being shot a couple times. You can use checkpoints to try again if you know you missed some, otherwise you'll have to replay the entire mission. The achievement likely won't pop until you finish the mission (and you might need to even click on the third mission to trigger the unlock). Good luck!

    Mission 2: Operation Cobra
    Difficulty: Any

    As you progress through the mission, you'll secure a field with an AA (Anit-Aircraft) Gun. Once you get on this, you'll need to take out all 20 enemy planes without missing any of them.

    This goal is pretty easy, and the pattern of the planes is always the same, so just make sure you're leading your shots and that the planes are getting destroyed.

    If at any point you miss a plane, immediately pause the game and choose Last Checkpoint.
