FOR PEOPLE WHO NEVER PLAYED THIS ONLINE YET. This guide SHOULD work.

Alright, so it's obvious this achievement is glitchy, I got it last night (from the time I write this obviously) on June 13th 2012. Because there are so many variables to take into account, i'll explain what my situation was, how I got my achievement, then i'll go on to explain the additional details.

READ THE ENTIRE GUIDE IF YOU'RE USING THIS TO GO THE SAME WAY I DID BEFORE DOING ANY BOOSTING. I will also add a summary of the boost at the end of the post.




So to start off, I never played this game until tonight. I did have one achievement prior:

Medal of Honor: AirborneGo Go Go!The Go Go Go! achievement in Medal of Honor: Airborne worth 5 pointsGet pushed out of the plane in any mission


Had a buddy come over and put it in to try it while I was doing something. But that's neither here nor there.

Case in point, I never played online at all. So I updated the game, and got on for the session I joined. In the session, there was me, another guy, and another guy with two consoles (basically him and a dummy account... Obviously).I was up first to do mine. Here's what we did:

1. We jumped on Ranked, Team Objective

2. We did every map in reverse order (because of randoms playing on Remagen at the time. The order was:

Husky
Neptune*
Avalanche*
The Hunt*
Destroyed Village
Remagen

*Look at ** at the bottom

3. All we did was run the flags. Basically, my teammate would run to the middle-2 person flag, while I captured Flag 1, then I would meet him at Flag 2, then run to Flag 3 to capture. I did this on all the maps ensuring that the flag captures made me be in first place EVERY ROUND. I DID NOT get kills every round, only the couple maps I have starred. And I also did all 6 maps CONSECUTIVELY.

WE DID NOT hit B at the end of the match or quit any matches. We just sat and waited for timers to run down.


NOW, im going to explain some variables.



** These three maps, we had done the following achievements:

Medal of Honor: AirborneMP - Pistol WhipThe MP - Pistol Whip achievement in Medal of Honor: Airborne worth 35 pointsKill an enemy with a pistol melee attack

Medal of Honor: AirborneMP - Paratrooper's BadgeThe MP - Paratrooper's Badge achievement in Medal of Honor: Airborne worth 41 pointsKill an enemy with a melee kick

Medal of Honor: AirborneMP - Human Flak GunThe MP - Human Flak Gun achievement in Medal of Honor: Airborne worth 26 pointsKill an enemy player with a grenade while he is parachuting

Medal of Honor: AirborneMP - Combat Infantryman BadgeThe MP - Combat Infantryman Badge achievement in Medal of Honor: Airborne worth 37 pointsKill an enemy player while he is parachuting

Medal of Honor: AirborneMP - Purple HeartThe MP - Purple Heart achievement in Medal of Honor: Airborne worth 27 pointsRecover full health after being in verge of death state


I still ensured I was in first place every round by adding a few kills to my count.



Also, I believe it was on Neptune, NORMALLY the guy on the opposite team would kill my teammate once making sure the leaderboard was:

1st: Mikhail Krauser
2nd: Booster 1
3rd: Booster 2
4th: Booster 3

HOWEVER,

During this Neptune match, I did see the leaderboard as

1st: Mikhail Krauser
2nd: Booster 1
3rd: Booster 2
3rd: Booster 3

Because no one got points on the opposite team. So this happened once as far as I noticed.



I also wanted to note that I popped these ALL AT THE SAME TIME which I think is necessary. So if you're hosting a boost session and someone hasen't started the online, LET THEM GO FIRST:

Medal of Honor: AirborneMP - EAM Campaign MedalThe MP - EAM Campaign Medal achievement in Medal of Honor: Airborne worth 128 pointsPlay every map at least once in a ranked match

Medal of Honor: AirborneMP - American Campaign MedalThe MP - American Campaign Medal achievement in Medal of Honor: Airborne worth 0 pointsBe on the winning team for every map in ranked matches

Medal of Honor: AirborneMP - World War II Victory MedalThe MP - World War II Victory Medal achievement in Medal of Honor: Airborne worth 0 pointsCome in first place on every map in any game mode in ranked matches



Once I popped these achievements, the other two boosters attempted this method (they had previously done some boosting or had some achievements for playing the maps) and neither unlocked it. Meaning this could prove my method that you need to assault these achievements all at once, or it could just be luck.


SUMMARY:

I DID:
Come 1st on all 6 maps
Did all 6 maps back-to-back
Start Fresh (meaning never played online)
Do the kill/health achievements during two or three games
Come 1st every round
Captured all the flags without the enemy doing so
Wait at the end of the match for the timer to end the game

I DID NOT:
Get kills every round
Have a perfect leaderboard of 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th. Once had a tie for 3rd.
Quit any matches



This may still be luck based, or I may have found the way for new people to the game unlocking it. Regardless, don't be selfish if you're boosting a session, if one person has not done any online, LET THEM GO FIRST.



I appreciate any comments anyone can give, if you vote negatively, please explain why. If you want to vote negatively because "This isn't a proper solution/exact way to fix this achievement" well too bad. This achievement is glitched, that's obvious, and so you have to get lucky. I explained how I unlocked it, and it's a higher chance than most guides i've seen for new people.
Mikhail KrauserAlso, no team kills... Not sure if that was obvious or not.

MFMegazeroxI got this doing this way. We had to quit out of dozens of matches, I don't think that made any difference. I believe as long as in one sitting you win all 6 matches in a row the achievement will pop. So it is best to get people who have already gotten the achievement to help you with your first 6 matches.

Mikhail KrauserThanks, post any feedback, even though i got 1 negative vote with NO REASON GIVEN... It seems like everyone who got online and went for this right away is getting it with my method. So, hopefully it's working.

tpb fanworked thank you so much

SvectraThis solution is perfect, I setup a session for this and all 3 of us got the achievement!

Homunculus FuryIf you are new to this game, when going for this achievement. I will assume you are boosting with a group of 4 people.

most likely you are going to screw one of you out of the achievement.

The reason being the only way to ensure you unlock this achievement is you have to unlock it at the same time as the American Victory medal.

There is no way around this. The best way is to use a dummy account until it's your turn. Or make sure that you are not on the same team as your partner when they get their last win. Remember the name of the map and just replay with the partner that just won.

This is only guaranteed for people who have either not finished all the other MP achievements or have not started this game yet.

If you have unlocked all the MP achievements and not this one. I'm sorry but you are not guaranteed to unlock this. I don't think you will ever unlock it.

Steve RedmanUSB trick doesn't work. Did every map with same group of boosters and mine didn't unlock, seriously think that whatever patch came out broke or glitched the achievement for those of us who played the game beforehand
Posted by Steve Redman on 11 Aug 14 at 17:54
Homunculus FuryThere was never a patch for this game.
Posted by Homunculus Fury on 11 Aug 14 at 20:19
Steve RedmanOf course there is a patch every shooter gets them online to prevent using exploits like spawn killing etc. I played the game beforehand and have not unlocked the achievement like others who played it when it came out. I can honestly say something that happened with the patch messed things up sort of like how GRIDs drive em all achievement

People who played it post update or patch have no problems getting the achievement
Posted by Steve Redman on 14 Aug 14 at 15:12
Homunculus Furyaccording to the people over at EA there was never a map pack for this game, never had maps removed,and never a patch issued for the online for this game. The PC version however did get two patches and has 10 maps. I played this when it was released and managed to unlock the achievement.
Posted by Homunculus Fury on 14 Aug 14 at 16:50
Mikhail KrauserThere IS a patch, just attempted on my spare account and had a 4MB Update.

Sorry for the confusion guys. But yes indeed... It seems like people who played BEFORE the patch itself, are the ones experiencing issues.
Posted by Mikhail Krauser on 14 Aug 14 at 22:30
Homunculus FuryI did play BEFORE the patch, I still won the achievement. there was never a patch issued for the online for this game.
Posted by Homunculus Fury on 15 Aug 14 at 02:36
Homunculus FuryThink about it even people who have never played before the "patch" run into the same issue when they do not unlock the American campaign medal and the WWII victory medal at the same time. So that tells me there was never a fix issued for the game.
Posted by Homunculus Fury on 15 Aug 14 at 02:38
Mikhail KrauserThat's not what's been discussed...

We're not saying there was a patch to specifically fix this issue because it isn't fixed, even people that play post patch still have a potential to not unlock it.

There WAS a patch for this game though, regardless if it was implemented to correct part of the online, or if it was just to make bullets shoot straighter in campaign... It doesen't matter...

This is what is under discussion, I don't care what the patch was for, it just seems people that ONLY played after the patch have a higher success rating for the achievement.

And im not saying people that played BEFORE the patch don't have a chance... They do, it's a bit of a random achievement... But I seem to have about a 90% success rate with this guide for people that have ONLY played after the patch and are just starting... That being said, if anyone has any constructive criticism, or find more information I can add, feel free to comment below.

Homunculus Furyyour statement is contradictory.
Posted by Homunculus Fury on 25 Oct 14 at 21:06
LuucGood guide, however you should change one thing:

Mikhail Krauser said:
1. We jumped on Ranked, Team Objective
Team Objective doesn't exist, you should rename it to Objective Airborne.
Somehow this confused me when I followed your guide.
I got the achivement first try, never touched this game before.
Posted by Luuc on 15 Sep 18 at 12:56
Mikhail KrauserThank you sir! Been a while since I checked this but when I get home I'll update
Posted by Mikhail Krauser on 15 Sep 18 at 15:45
A Dreadful ShotGreat solution. Jumped straight into the multiplayer, won each map while coming in first and popped all three achievements after the final map.
