    Mission: REDEMPTION

    (when you have the valkyrie missile launcher)

    -put the difficulty on recruit
    -wait till the choppers are very close together (if you keep moving in small circles they won't be able to kill you on recruit)
    -then fire your missile and hit 'right trigger' as soon as you are between the choppers to manually detonate it!

    The biggest advantage is that you won't have to reload the checkpoint everytime, because now you either destory both choppers and thus unlock the achievement or you destroy none of them in wich case you can try again right away.

    xSergicalxlet me add this to the help, if the choppers are taking too long to get close to each other try throwing a frag granade at one of the choppers and it will usually hoover close to the other chopper so you can quickly disperse your rocket and hit RT when the rocket is right between the both of them. In my case this worked for me on my second try considering that on my first try I threw the grenade and seen how the chopper reacted. hope this helps a bit.

    Creepsho88I got this in less than a minute on my first attempt! While I didn't get what you were saying at first (to trigger the explosion of the rocket), it's very simple!

    LECKZGot this on my 1st try. Very easy to do, I didn't even view the video, simply get the launcher and run back to near the beginning of the level and hide (I hid behind a crate behind a wall by the fallen crane and waited for them to get a close proximity with each other. Then FIRE... make sure you detonate the rocket by pressing the R TRIGGER once it gets past the first copters tail and BAAAANNNG!!! Theres your cheevy! ;)

    Really easy to unlock, get the launcher and goto the rear of the boat, take cover while you wait for the 2 choppers to come close to one another, then fire the valkyrie either between rotor blades making sure you hit the blades of one of the choppers or fire at the tail rotor of the chopper infront, this will cause the chopper to spin and take out the other chopper..

    STORM SHAKERGetting the achievement isnt that bad it seems its getting the 2 choppers to fly close together is whats getting to me. i havent got it yet mainly because I cant seem to get them to fly close. Otherwise it isnt that bad it seems.

    BIG P3TETry it on easy, we've had loads of members say that on easy the choppers tend to fly closer together more often..
    Good luck and Happy Xmas!!
