On the level Tsavo Highway, after the Rally Point Alpha checkpoint, there will be a battle involving two waves of brutes and then a wraith. In the buildings in the back of the encounter area, there are 3 trip mines. Your best bet is to grab either a brute shot or fuel rod cannon off the bodies of the brutes and shoot one of the choppers in the next area until it is almost dead. Then, lure it towards you and at the last second, throw down the trip mine. This will kill the chopper and earn you the achievement. Make sure you play on easy, for obvious reasons.

Something like this:
SpectreSubZerothis is a decently hard achievement, you would think so from the TA score

Exit Bloomtried it on same level and nada. after retrying it 6 or so times, I gave up, and will try it elsewhere. possible glitch?

The 7ravelerI don't think so. You actually have to destroy the vehicle, not just kill the brute. If you can't get it in campaign, I would recommend playing Squad Battle for the cheevo.

The GlobalizerFirst try. Recommend fuel rod gun, 2-3 shots, then drop & lure.

Skill 2Good call Globalizer; 2 fuel rod shots and the trip-mine did the trick :)

SwervinCurvinwow what a pain in the ass, marines kept getting in the way and killing the brutes lol.

CurufinweI killed all the marines before I went to the area with the chopper. Just got the Achievement. :)

mast3r 0r0m1sTook me awhile but when you go to the chopperes, drop the warthog off and walk back up to the cave you should have a guy driving at you, I chucked a frag at him which damaged the chopper and didnt kill the brute, as soon as he got back onto it (the chopper was practically dead) I just threw the land mine in front and bam achievement popped as soon as he ran it over.

zoilus681st try, cheevo down. Worked like a champ on easy. Thanks!

PrimeBigTimeYou should define what "almost dead" means. I ended up shooting the chopper twice with the fuel rod cannon and then laid down the trip mine. That seemed to get it to work. Someone else should confirm this then add it to the guide.

ForbannitusAppreciated the video. Great tip!

fez34nice, got it first time thanks
Posted by fez34 on 22 Sep 14 at 18:35
WilliamRSPOAI would highly recomend that you kill the bots before they end up destroying the chopper them selves

Mr DopeGamingLate to the party, but I have this achievement for the CRAB event. Was super easy. Right after beating the wraith, snag a fuel rod cannon and your mine. Walk to the right and there will be several choppers. You can line then up between the two rocks pretty easy. Hit them with the fuel rod and drop your mine. Took me a whole 5 mins from rally point alpha

Lazy with StyleBest place to get this on the mission Tsavo Highway is the first roadblock where there is a tunnel with an energy shield. There are trip mines in the buildings there und two choppers. I weakened the choppers with a fuel rod cannon I picked up earlier and then dropped some mines on the ground and lured them to me until they exploded! You can also get the "Headshot Honcho" achievement here by picking up beam rifles on your way and headshotting brutes and jackals. I think this is also before the Rally Point Alpha checkpoint.

xRNMxSnipeKinGYeah, the brute chopper required two shots with the fuel rod cannon and then the trip mine will destroy the vehicle. Anything less will not unlock the achievement even if the driver died as the vehicle will still be drivable.
