    The description for this is a little off as to be honest you don't need to Dodge by moving out of the way.

    Get your boosting partner then ...
    Xbox Live > Player Match >
    then press cn_Y to Host Session
    Mode = Team Battle (obviously)
    Map = Tokyo Last Stand
    Private Session = Yes (stops randoms)
    Player HP = Realistic
    It doesn't really matter about the other settings, its up to you.

    Now when you are in the lobby make sure whoever is going for the achievement is on the RED team. You can change teams by highlighting which one you want with cn_downright then click cn_RB.

    Once in the game the player doing the shooting will spawn to the Right of the other player, target them and shoot with your HSM's.

    If you are firing from the side of the other player you will MISS about 50% of the time. You will know its worked if you get the words "Missed Target" on the screen and the player going for the achievement will see the video in the top right of the screen, but not get hit.

    In a 5 minute match of around 20 kills we got at least 8-10 "Missed Target". Unless this is your last achievement in the game I would just work on it while you are maxing out your planes.

    The player going for the achievement just needs to press cn_A to respawn into the game after getting shot down. No need to fly about (apart from to dodge the Tower), just fly in a straight line.

    This method is also very good for boosting XP and Planes as the spawns stay the same. If you are shooting keep around the Tower and Health / Ammo Boost as you will get less flak off the frigates. DO NOT blow up the frigates or you will get way too much flak to handle.

    Thanks to MrZill and Scotwolf2 for helping out to get the achievement.

    Enjoy

    Very easy to do and setup.

    From the main menu:

    Go to Xbox Live
    Select Player Match
    Press cn_Y to host session
    Leave mode on Team Battle
    Choose Air Superiority as map
    Set time to 5 min if you still need Veteran achievement or 15 min if not (missile dodge count is cumulative across all played Team Battle matches)
    Set Private Session to Yes
    Leave the rest of the remaining options as they are

    Now invite your boosting partner and start the game.

    Once the game starts, fly to the middle area where the missile pickup is and a few AI planes will start coming towards you. Let them start shooting missiles at you and avoid them by doing loop the loops. Keep letting them fire missiles and dodge them until you eventually unlock the achievement.

    Note: I am not 100% sure that this will work solo, but you are welcome to try if you do not have access to a boosting partner or another xbox. If anyone unlocks this solo using this method, please let me know in the comments and I will update this guide.

    Hope this helps!

    Simply dodge missiles, don´t take flares. I recommend Off-Mode to get this easily. Try it in a normal match, in hardcore matches every rocket kills 90%. You can boost it in private matches.
