    This achievement is easiest unlocked on Mission 4: Proxy War. After infiltrating the base right at the start of the mission you will have to take down two helicopters, instead of using your RC Plane to blow up the helicopter, shoot and kill the pilot to earn this achievement.

    You can also unlock "Wild Fire" at this point aswell.

    You can do this on the 4th Mission Proxy War. When the mission begins grab the Kar Sniper Rifle. Once you storm the airfield hang to the left like i did and stop right before the helicopters, line up a shot on the right helicopter pilot and take him out.

    If you are still struggling, then feel free to use this video as a reference.

    heya guys
    i made a 3 in 1 achievement guide on how to get ashes to ashes, long way down & wild fire at the same time in the same mission
    the mission is ofc proxy war
    you can do all of these at the same point using the same helicopter
    just simply complete one achievement then instantly reload the last checkpoint and do the next achievement , then do it again
    i made a video guide below which is simple and easy to follow :)
