Alright, me and another guy on here boosted it and here's what we did. Almost every European map's original spawn point has an AA gun. Simply have the other player deploy two sticky dynamite and climb in. To help you see what you are doing, have the other player fire the gun straight up into the air and fly your bomber in 3rd person view. This should help you find the gun and line up a shot. It also prevents people on your own team from shooting them out of the turret before you can bomb. The down side is that people on the opposing team love to shoot down bombers and people on yojr team may bomb them first if they see the gun fire. It took us 3 maps for me and the other guy to both get the achievement. We obviously did this on conquest. The best maps are Arras and Narvik.

EDIT: DICE now allows community created servers where you can make your own game and then make it private. You would need to gather enough people to start a round but this might be ideal if you are having trouble in public servers.

EDIT: You need to be at least level 7 to open up the bombers, you need at least 4 players (2 per team) to start a round on a private server. DO NOT PUT A PASSWORD on the server or it will not track progress. If you are the host, just kick random people joining. Again, Arras amd Narvik are the preferred maps but Panzerstorm may also be good to get this achievement.

EDIT: The other online achievements may be done as well if you have the right number of people.
El ThommoDo you know what plane you used and what rank you are?

Also, did you have to level the plane up? I'm rank 9, and using the plane unlocked on rank 8 didn't seem to offer me the use of bombs until that plane was levelled up itself - which is a shame as i really suck at flying those planes :)
Posted by El Thommo on 23 Nov 18 at 09:10
P00R GRENDELUse the bombers. On the nazi side, that is the JU-88, on the Allies side, it's the Blenheim. The secondary weapon they have is 4x heavy bombs. After every run, you will have to fly over refill spots to get more bombs. They do not need to be leveled up (though that helps). You may need to be a higher rank to unlock those planes but I don't think so. I think they should already be unlocked.

TJ EliminatorCan anyone provide tips on how to be a better bomber pilot? My bombs never do anything and I get shot down in seconds. On battlefield 4 I was fine in the helicopters and jets but these planes are difficult.
Posted by TJ Eliminator on 04 Dec 18 at 14:30
P00R GRENDELThe training grounds are a part of the next update and will allow you to practice with all the vehicles and weapons. If you are having trouble with the bombers, I highly recommend you wait for the update and use the training grounds.
Posted by P00R GRENDEL on 04 Dec 18 at 15:51
TJ EliminatorThank you I tried the training ground.

The achievement is absurd - I’m online this evening does anyone want to boost this? We can find a low population server and get this ridiculous achievement out the way.

I Ebon Hawk II have been trying to do this legit and I am finding that when my bombs hit the target, the AA gun only takes around 70-80 damage. The person on the gun gets killed but the AA gun doesn't get destroyed. It seems extremely difficult to do legit.
Posted by I Ebon Hawk I on 06 Dec 18 at 22:41
P00R GRENDELYou need the 1000 KG bombs from the JU-88 to even have a shot at killing the station.
Posted by P00R GRENDEL on 06 Dec 18 at 23:03
The SCHWARTZ 00I just destroyed a station (totally lucky on a blind bombing run) with no upgrades. I was pretty close to the ground when I dropped the bombs, so you can definitely destroy the station/get the kill, but you have to be in close proximity to the target.
Posted by The SCHWARTZ 00 on 09 Dec 18 at 17:16
P00R GRENDELClose proximity is not required but it can help you to distinguis the target and land the bombs more precisely.
Posted by P00R GRENDEL on 09 Dec 18 at 22:14
The SCHWARTZ 00Yeah, but I just unlocked the nuke (1000KG bomb for the German side) and you don't have to worry about precision anymore lol. That thing takes all the guesswork out of the achievement. It's the key to unlocking this one, since it covers such a wide area and vaporizes everything in it's radius.

Posted by Envigorate on 11 Dec 18 at 07:15
The SCHWARTZ 00also, if all else fails and you don't have any bombs but you can clearly see someone on an AA gun....just go full kamikaze and crash your plane into him. It will count. Trust me. laugh

P00R GRENDELDid the gun blow up as well or did you just kill the guy inside?
Posted by P00R GRENDEL on 14 Dec 18 at 23:37
Where do the planes spawn? I stayed on narvik and saw ppl flying em but none ever spawned back
Posted on 16 Dec 18 at 22:39
P00R GRENDELBecause you weren't quick enough to nab one if it ever got destroyed. Try a map with more planes like Arras or Fjell
Posted by P00R GRENDEL on 16 Dec 18 at 23:02
I see they don't even spawn on map. Have to pick from spawn menu
Posted on 16 Dec 18 at 23:07
P00R GRENDELYes. You have to wait on the spawn screen until one is available.

WKFJonesyArras is the best by a long way, just boosted it and there are two AA at each spawn, on roads away from points that respawn after being blown up.
Posted by WKFJonesy on 28 Dec 18 at 22:56
P00R GRENDELYeah, I found Arras to be my favorite for this as well.

StK IDespite what the achievement description says, my partner got 20% on their tracker when they destroyed an AA turret that I had put two dynamite on while I WASN'T in the turret. Obviously being in the turret and shooting for visibility helps out, but if you lose the point/can't get to the AA anymore or whatever it might still be worth bombing the turret and seeing if it counts.

Just got this with a guy on here and we found it easiest on Twisted Steel as a matter of fact. It’s literally a straight B-line from spawn across the battered bridge and on the other side is a manned turret attached to a vehicle.... all flat ground and a very clear line of view (no snow, sand, etc). This turret cannot be rebuilt but it does respawn after a while... you can rebuild and use the turret at conquest point G too while you’re waiting for that one to come back.
Posted on 16 May 19 at 04:38
P00R GRENDELIf it gets dragged out of the spawn but not destroyed, it never respawns and there is only one on the allied side, not the axis side. You got really lucky.
Posted by P00R GRENDEL on 16 May 19 at 17:07
KillerZ x AceThis achievement seems to be bugged. I got to 80% of the progression twice and it just reset istelf to 20% on my 5th kill. I am so fucking done with this!!!

Posted by P00R GRENDEL on 27 May 19 at 22:09
PoiaAfter the update every achievement is glitch, you lose progress if you leave the lobby. Every achievement must be unlock in one session at the same lobby. In each achievement there is someone who complain about loosing progress, it happened to me with the round maps. I suggest to wait for a patch.
Posted by Poia on 16 Jun 19 at 09:35

Hect0rloCan anyone confirm if this works in private matches?
Posted by Hect0rlo on 16 Dec 19 at 11:35
VladZelenyakI can confirm boosting in private matches works. We had a session with 6 people couple days ago and all get achievement except me. My problem was that due to the bug in a game, even while I was rank 10, bombers weren't unlocked for me and therefore I was not able to destroy AA gun.
Posted by VladZelenyak on 17 Dec 19 at 10:19
VladZelenyakJust in case you are still sceptical about boosting this achievement in the private sesssion. We were having a session earlier today and all who had the bomber planes did unlocked got the Death from Above achievement. In the community game with just 4 people to start. The Arras map is the easiest one from what I tried. Don't forget you need to be Rank 7 to unlock bomber planes and do not use password to protect the game if you are hosting it! With the password the progress doesn't track, just kick off the randoms as a host if you'd see them.
Posted by VladZelenyak on 18 Dec 19 at 22:37
P00R GRENDELGood info Vlad. I will add it to the description.

Stefano135Can we use private match to unlock all the mp achievements?
Posted by Stefano135 on 26 Dec 19 at 19:20
P00R GRENDELThat is unconfirmed but if you get enough people to get this achievement, try the other one's.
Posted by P00R GRENDEL on 26 Dec 19 at 20:06
VladZelenyakYes, you can use community created matches to boost all the MP achievements. If you gather 4 or more players in a session, you can start 2 vs. 2 game and do everything you need. Like do class kills for XPs, 10 kills with pistols in a round, roadkills etc. Even frontlines wins can be boosted now.

pablodanielminoWe were four, so I created a Community Server with 10 rounds of Conquest on Arras. We were working in two pairs, one player from opposites teams in each pair . So I jumped in a bomber and my partner was sitting on a stationary weapon on his base firing to the air. Both pilots managed to get the achievement on the first round and then we switched, and then they managed to get it on the second round.

Community Servers are the way to go if you get four players, but if you lock the server with password you will disable progress tracking, so you need to leave it without password so randoms can get it, but the good news is that the server owner can kick them off from the scoreboard by pressing x
