    Checkpoint 1: Try to get between 15 and 20 kills before you land (it helps greatly pressing both the RB and RT buttons so you fire your cannons at the same time. Also make sure you look down the sight (LT)).

    Checkpoint 2: Next you want to get 25 kills, you should have this by the time you switch from the second gun (first is the front of the plane, second is the right side i think).

    Checkpoint 3: Next you want to get 35 kills by the time you leave the third gun (this is the one that took me the most attempts).

    Checkpoint 4: Now you move back to the front gun and should have no problems getting the last 10 kills (again, use both cannons and machine gun fire whenever your using the front gun).

    *also when you get a chance destroy the PT boats, it seemed to result in more zeroes.
    *the number of kills are the bare minimum, if you dont have at least that many i would strongly suggest restarting the checkpoint.

    FightclxbThanks for the indicators on the number of kills we should be at by each switch of turret. Ended up hitting this on my first restart.

    EthigyHonestly a pretty easy achievement. Got it on veteran and I only had 30 when I switched to the final gun. Easily can get 15+ on the last gun.

    Personally I found all these guides not that helpful. This walk-though tells each section clear-fully and slowly. Make sure to do this on low sensitivity also. I got this achievement easily and had allot of zeros left to kill also. Credit goes to AWProductions101 on youtube.

    DUS SOULWOUNDVideos great, but restarting goes from check point not level.
    Which is good to remember if your low on kills, let the pt ships kill you or restart that earliest checkpoint.
    Not as hard as the video makes it sound wink

    My three tips (in additional the those excellent tips already above).

    1. Turn off vibration (I did this in conjunction to setting my sensitivity to low - Thanks Dunnett3). I think it makes for a steadier aim.

    2. Sit close(r) to the TV (if you don't already). I have a 50" DLP, and I usually sit about 8 feet back. I could not see the planes quick enough. Sitting closer helped.

    3. Don't rely on LT (iron sights) too much. Keep your finger off the LT until you see the planes (in waves) and then LT to get a better shot. For planes not in waves, don't use LT.

    I had tried this a few times before on my own, but with the tips above I got it on my first try (47 Zeros) after finishing the game on veteran.

    Good luck!

    (I was very happy to get this without too much trouble)
