Set up a local multiplayer game (2 controllers) with the following conditions:

Game: Team Territory
Type: Hamburger Hill
Map: Desert Gulch
Helicopters: On
Timer: 30 Minutes

Have the second controller capture and hold the main territory, which will spawn a helicopter almost instantly.

With your main account, select the M-107 Rifle, and shoot at the helicopter from your spawn. It should take around 3-8 clean hits in order to bring it down.. Keep destroying the helicopters as they spawn, and as you run out of ammo just grenade yourself for a refill.

This should take no more than 2 games using these settings. The achievement pops up as soon as you have destroyed your 100th.
Shinobi Hanzo No, I think you need to shoot down your opponents helicopters only for kills to count.

WinnerzOnlyInc Thanks for the solution, actually got this in one game.

pyr0lyZer Great solution. Nice work. It seems that you can also down the helicopter in as few as 2 shots, if you can get lucky enough. I noticed this happened a few times for me when I aimed right at the shaft of the helicopter rotor and above the pilot, with it coming straight on and before it gets overhead

General E Quick Must have about 350 heli kills and still no achievement... WTF

FittedCab great solution, but I used the standard rifle that you use with automatic rifleman class... the m-107 was slower to use, with the other weapon I got 57 helicopters in 30 minutes...

onemorechanc I noticed the same thing as pyr0lyZer ... two shots, chopper goes down. Including the time it took to figure out the right spot to stand and aim, it took 41 minutes to go from 0 to 100 chopper kills. Thanks!

Seraph Metatron I have 150 kills doing this and still no ach. Any idea what I might be doing wrong?

Seraph Metatron So right after I posted the previous message, I decided to load up one more match and got it after shooting down my first helicopter. I still know that I had at least 150, but who cares, it unlocked.

DefiantZero I used the M107 and shot about 2-3 times at the guy in the heli and boom went down instantly. went pretty quick and only really ever used 8 shots until I needed more ammo.

DecadentBeaver Awesome solution. I'm gonna give this a go shortly. Gotjaxed of boosting Master of Ceremonies and Heavyweight so avoided this game for 2 months. Will need to finish this game off asap. Makes it sound quicker than it looks.

Kanchanaburi I just used this and it took over 115 kills to get it, something about some of my kills the game didn't like. Thank yoU!

LandoC01 Worked just fine for me at the 100 mark. Just for clarification, just have your second controller move out of the zone for a second, then back into the zone to re-establish control after you kill the first helicopter that spawns.

The Fury I84I Worked a charm ;) +1 from me.

liner bronson Perfect. Popped bang on 100 for me too.

VaPeZy Excellent solution! Just remember to lie down when shooting the helicopters, it makes your shots a lot more accurate and saves a lot of time
