    On the two player co-op mission Overwatch, in the Bravo set of Special Ops missions, it is possible to get this achievement. The player in the AC-130 gunship can get it by shooting the helicopters as they drop men out onto the field, and the player on the ground can get it by picking them off as they rappel down the rope.

    Another Special Op mission that you can get this is on Suspension, the final mission in the Alpha set. Part way through the level soldiers will rappel down onto your level from the sides. A quick burst should kill a couple of them, unlocking this achievement.

    Solario32I agree. AC-130 was too easy.

    Vex TwilleyI found Suspension was quicker. I literally started the mission, ran forward and they had started repelling in about 5 seconds.

    On the single player mission "The Only Easy Day ... Was Yesterday" you can get this achievement. About halfway through the level, enemy reinforcements will rappel in from helicopters (Air Assault) to the outside edges of the oil rig.

    Two easy shots and "Achievement Unlocked".

    This can be done on the 'Suspension' Op on Alpha in Special Ops. At the start, once you advance after picking up the desired weapon, they will rapple from both sides of the bridge. Once you kill 2 in a row, the achievement should show
