To do this go on blood harvest chapter 5
when you are at the end to contact the radio have 3 players go in the red barn
climb the ladder and turn around and walk on the planks
then the other person contact the radio and run where the others are
now this will happen 3/4 of the time
the hunter will attempt to jump on you from the ground
the hunter will then get glitch on the walk where you are at going up and down for as long as hes alive
then if you look down u can see where he will jump thru the planks aim were his head will be and shoot ive helped over 27 people with achievement
if you have any questions please contact me

a bit confuzed, cud someone make a video. i dont get it, for the person trying to get the achieve do they stay on the planks? but where do they shoot, does the hunter try to jump up on those wooden planks? if so where does he get stuck? sorry im jus a bit confuzed if someone cud clear it up or at least help me get it id greatly appreciate it

Yeah a video of this would help, just showing where you have to set up in the barn and where we would expect the Hunter to go as would really like to get this achievement and would make it easier than having to be in the same room as you.

i believe porkchop is working on a video soon. you basically hide up on the wooden planks in the back of the barn. hardly anything can touch you there, and usually the hunter gets stuck along the back wall jumping up, so you just aim where his head reaches when he jumps.

hmm sounds easy but still a video would help, or if someone could join my game and just show me that'd be cool also

I couldn't get this to work, tried for a while but to no avail. I got it at the beginning of chapter 5 Blood Harvest, had it on expert to team kill the 2 AI then put it on easy. Then me and my mate cleared out the first little horde you get after you leave the train cart, and then a hunter always spawns. I just let him chase me back and forth pouncing towards me and I just shot him in the face and killed him after about 3 tries. Found it much easier doing it this way. Not saying this method doesn't work though, it just didn't work for me.

Well the weapon it self could be the factor in this as well i got mine easily with the Uzi since the shotgun acted strange like with the crOwned achievement you cant just aim right at its face you have to aim above are just below the head.

Jump Shot was the very first achievement I got. My friend came over and brought L4D so I could try it out. I started my first playthrough on No Mercy and I was using an Uzi. About 5 mins into the game I just started to unload into a horde charging at us and "xxTopsyKretts killed a hunter" popped up, followed by the achievement. Needless to say, my friend was not happy because he's had the game longer and has been trying for it for a long time. :D

Here's how I got it.

1) Spot a Hunter walkin' around.
2) When you're sure it's gonna jump, just start shooting with an automatic weapon.

It really is that simple. It will take some repetition, but you'll get it if you keep trying.

The most important thing to remember is this: you don't have to kill the Hunter, you just need a head shot. If he still gets you on the ground, your achievement will unlock as soon as your teamates get him off you.

Lol? What the fuck people. Use the search function.

The easiest way has already been posted before. Load up the No Mercy finale. Exit the saferoom, go halfway down the hall, turn back and go back into the saferoom. Close the door.

A hunter will come down and keep jumping at the door, his head will glitch through the door. Shoot.



I swear the more new people I see coming to this forum the more I realize a ton of you are suckers.

I take it back. After giving it one more go around I finally got it to unlock. Kill your AI team, run down the hall to agro the specials, and wait. His head does pop through but aiming directly for where I thought the head would be didn't help. I got it spinning my cross hair in a full circle motion firing wildly.

Try that and see how it works for you.

Like I said, use the search function.... it was posted. I think multiple times. Like everything else in this game thread.

Matt Jo
12-11-2008, 02:43 AM
it doesnt work. I tried it like five times and the Hunter only spawned once and it pounced on me and killed me.

I got mine on the Dead Air Finale (Like I did most my other achieves) I head shotted a hunter while he jumped at me from across the map, he was pretty high up but I managed to get a shot of with the auto shotty and hit him in the face! I think its because I lowered his health a bit by meleeing him and pistol whipping him like I saw Zoey do in the trailer of the game. And in mid air I aimed above his head and pulled it off. I also did it on another account with the turret from Dead Air some how.

I tried this last night and it works perfectly well but it took a little time to get the timing right. I tried all the automatic weapons and failed with all of them a couple times. I finally reasoned out that the fastest firing weapon would be the best to use so I took the machine gun. I also found it much easier to see the hunter by first jumping on the table that holds the molotov then ducking down which allows you to jump on the medkit cupboard. You then can move forward and look down on the hunter outside the safe room door. Move yourself around slightly to get a good view and then watch the hunter for a bit to see his pattern. You should see his head pop up above the bottom window frame of the door at some interval. Once that is established, fire away with your weapon at that location. If you kill him and don't get the achievement, wait it out and another will come and you can try again.

When I tried shooting the hunter through the door, I had trouble timing his head glitching through it and shooting him. I ended up killing him many times but not by headshot so no achievement. I am sure that likely works too but timing has to be just right.

With the above modification, I got him first try.

It pounced on you through the safe room door? I'm guessing you didn't do it properly.

MrT
12-11-2008, 07:56 PM
Yep I tried this method and it worked a treat, although my hunter didn't seem to like pouncing. He spent a lot of time just crawling around at the door and then every few minutes or so he'd make a jump so I just sat there aiming at the top of his jump and firing random shots until I hit him.

As for getting pounced, yes they *can* pounce through the door. I had one hunter at the door when a horde arrived, and I guess they somehow pushed him through the door as he pounced.

Matt Jo
12-12-2008, 01:33 AM
No I mean pounce as in out in the hallway he pounced me. I keep going out in the hallway though and no hunters ever spawn would someone mind either putting this method up on YouTube or joining my game and helping?
Thanks!

Thanks!

You have to first walk about 1/2 to 3/4 of the way down the hallway then return to the safe room and close the door. Usually a horde and boomer would come then eventually a hunter although I did get 4 smokers in a row. When the horde was dealt with, and any special infected killed, sometimes I would just open the door and creep up the stairs. This seemed to trigger a new horde or special. I didn't have to go out very far. Sometimes it seemed to be a few minutes with nothing happening. Be patient, they won't forget about you. I still crap my pants when I am alone and the specials are lurking about...

Go into options and turn Full Captions on...helps let you know what is coming before you hear it.

I can help if you message me.

Seeing as you have 5 posts here, I don't know if you realize how dumb people can be.
I don't mean to be snooty and condescending, but honestly. If people want this achievement so bad, isn't it just logical to look in the achievement guide?

ok ive finally got the method working, I get the Hunter to glitch through the door but I cant get the achieve. I go on the table with the moltovs and then jump onto the med kit box on the wall and look through the door and the hunters head pops up through the bottom window frame every so often and I alway shoot it and kill him but I dont get the achieve. its getting annoying!

He has to be jumping at you for the headshot to count. His head does glitch through the door a lot but if you kill him like that it won't count as he's not in the air, he's just crawling around outside the door.

12-13-2008, 06:21 AM
Holy crap I just got it! I stood a little bit back, right near the table by the door and just aimed near the middle of the door's opening (by the crossbar) and the Hunter just jumped into my mindless shooting.

Hi guys its my first post here and I would like to thank those who posted up the No Mercy chapter 5 safe room method.

The way I got it to work was to kill the AI teamates, run upstairs, along the hallway till you're around halfway, then lure a hunter.

Run all the way back to the saferoom and the hunter will follow and fuck about around outside the saferoom for a while.

Keep moving back and forth towards the saferoom door to make him pounce. Then just take a shot at eye level to where he is. The horde was also banging away at the door whilst the hunter was pouncing up and down so I just shot everything including the hunters head :woop:
