Yeah this is hard as shit compared to the other 3 which are piss.

I managed to get to around 3:2 by sniping and I had 2 other friends with me but they werent that good.

The problem was in the end we got swarmed by specops and APC's which would not blow up.

I would also apriciate some tips and if one map is better than the other.

I managed to get to 4:2 alone on the day time map (cant remember its name), I only failed cause I fell back to the main area and was pinned by a tank, helo and troops. For most of the game I camped on the roof of the building just before area two. I was the grenadier class. The only problem is if you leave any vehicle for too long your gunna get swarmed.

do the day time map. i did it with 2 other friends.
have 2 people control the roofs at top of the hill.
put AI on the manned 50 cal emplacement to the left.
and then have 1 person on top of the main area building at the back (with the flag on the roof). this person is on air clearance duty. he must shoot all choppers before they drop any spec ops off close to your compound.(not the choppers at back of map)
also a hummer or apc will come to the back gate every so often.
keep taking out bonus choppers and save all airstrikes untill stage 4.
when attack choppers come you must all be on air duty.
you MUST complete stage 4 wave 4. only escape when 5.1 loads.

happy hunting.

If you're doing contested front, this is what you should do. You need at least 2 grenadiers, and 2 snipers. Make sure you place mines on the road and use AP mines at the front doors and inside the base places where the enemy comes. It's trial and error but they always come the same routes. If you have a high level Grenadier with the explosives perk to give you more AT mines the better!

Also the APC always stops at the same spot on inside the base always put an AT Mine at the enterance, work together and save as many AT mines as you can. Use fire missions to order mortar rounds, don't waste them. As long as you all call out your stations a sniper 'with' a grenadier on each side you will be fine, it does get rough later on.

Most of all pick someone to use the stinger missile! preferably the grenadier as you still keep your primary weapon otherwise you will find it hard.

Did they all hit?

Were they all locked on? Meaning, the square recticle will turn into a 8-pointed star before it actually locks & arms.

Maybe he's shooting at the troop carriers in the south, that land the enemy soldiers waves.

I reckon they cannot be destroyed, as they launch decoys for ground to air defense.

As far as i know the easiest way and fastest is to have 3 friends all with SMAW launchers as they are unlimited on the day time map. with 3 men on front and 1 guy near back you just tear through them. and since they dont come to the back in much force the back guy can also be near the stinger to take down choppers. If You want to be extra careful all have mines and place them in the compound in the event you need to fall back and also have the extra health ability just incase.

Troop transports are invincible so dont waste the shot and make sure you finish wave 4:4 as the achievement description is misleading dont bugout till it says wave 5 starting

when me and my friends did this we all took assault class with an m16 with sniper sights and the missile lancher ( dosent replace the m16 like it dose with a sniper). 2 of use would use the m16s. one on the left and one one the right while the other 2 would use the missles to shoot the enemy as they as they spawned and take out any jeeps or apcs ( ignor the tanks as they retreat when the infantry runs away at the end of the round). the other thing we found was dont go for kill shots ( incapasitate them) as this seems to slow down there spawns and also the enemy that are liveing will try to heal them making them easy to hit. we easly got to wave 5.1 and proberly could have gone a few more rounds but we wanted the achevmentso we got to the chopper

Right now, the servers seem to be the worst enemy. I have been quicked out of a game in stage 4.4. Twice. And I can't join friend's sessions.

Also, I was having a good nice game when one punk decided to quit, but only after killing us all with one granade.

I am hopping to get this one before the interest for the game declines.

A friend of mine just kept joining games and mangaged to join at 5:1 and the other guys were sitting in the chopper just about to take off -I wouldnt suggest this as all there will be is ppl searching and no one playing - When going for this - Best with 4 humans - And you dont want to be too close together - You need at least 1 person taking out the vehicles / helos etc - And we had 2 snipers and an assault guy - Another trick we found is if you die and your team have used all the respawns already , quit out and rejoin quickly and you are able to respawn again!! Hope this helps

Quick Solution

- minimum 3 human players (4 better), i did it with 2 friends

- get the rocket launchers, mines on the way (NOT between the houses!)

- shoot, shoot shoot...

- be carefull: Humvees drive around your base sometimes, one player must get them down

- be carefull: Destroy the "Special Targets" (choppers) for airstrikes

- be carefull: If you hear an enemy attack chopper, get of the roofs! They destroy them realy quick and you canīt get back on them! Same goes for Tanks

- be carefull: Some choppers will come with special forces to load them up behind your base, destroy them before there reach the back, this is one of the hardest things! Many gamers lost the game because of this.

- best way is to get the 4th player for AA gunner, we were only 3, but i think this make it easy.

- let youre people die! Itīs stupid to run into enemy gunfire to save the live of one if you got enough respawns (you should have 12+ if youre good)

- call in the chopper at the end of 4:4, wait till 5:1 begins BEFORE you enter the chopper.

Also, make sure you are protecting the main area if you have to fall back. Before I got this, our team failed at 4:3 even tho we were all in the area defending, some PLA had got into the very centre area. That was maddening, 1 hour wasted!!!

Finally managed it! The Game was glitchy and could not reload - swap weapons - restock missiles properly. And we had to make it to 5.3 because there was no green smoke or chopper! Fun to remember now, but not so while playing!

Game glitches on me swell and wouldn't spawn the green smoke for the chopper forcing us to fight two more tense rounds before it arrived, rocket launchers are your friends.....

Have tried to do this for hours, always ending up with players that runs to the helo and use the combat support at stage 3, and left me to defend the hole area by myself.
Or ending up with some assh*le that team killing us.
If anyone want to do this with me send me an FR my GT is: xXxHEIMDALLxXx and a message FR:RR.

Same... as long as you get players who know what they're doing and don't piss about it's not overly difficult. The Gunships and Tanks can pucker your arse a bit, but as long as everyone has a stinger or AT weapon handy it's all good in the end.

Yeah same happened to us, the attack helo caused the chopper to bug out and had to make it to 5.2 before it came back.

Agreed on rockets, use smaw against crowds of infantry as well as vehicles and use Stinger on the 2 specs ops choppers that appear when you hear them coming, makes it much easier.

on the day map make sure you lay AT mines on the road at back of base, at AP mines just inside the base at back this will stop them coming up behind.

Send me XBL-msg for an inv to see if we can arrange a nice shooting fest :)

This is the last I need.

I have all kits maxed so If I need to have a specific loadout, let me know.

Though I am more partial to the Rifleman kit, The M4 with rifle scope + AP rounds just fucks ANYTHING up. I can usually take out a huge group of enemies all within seconds, it is much more effective and faster than sniping, you get more ammo and faster control, and most of all it works just as well from the hip so its 1 hit kills for everything, fuck wounding people if I can just kill 10 people in a burst of a few shots and because of the AP rounds you can stop the humvees dead by taking out the driver. It can also be equipped with a grenade launcher as well so that doubles its use. Shame you cant have HEDP rounds with it also, or having a rifle scope with grenadier.

I am up for getting this, no doubt.

To get this achievement you need 3 squad mates that know what they are doing you need at least 2 Grenadiers with extra mines which need to be laid along the back road and along the main road into the compound! this should stop any advances from APC'S and Humvees. You need to buddie up and have two men on each side of the compound with at least one on each side carrying a rocket launcher. Final tip is to have headsets because communication is good on Last Stand and towards the end you will need to work together to take out the helicopters later on about wave 4:3 or something! Good hunting outlaws!!!!! Im maxed in all classes so if you need some help feel free to add me. Gamertag on the left you know the rest :)

Any way we got upto stage 5 wave 4 before bunking out.

Hi there, sorry for bringing up a "old" topic!

But I wanted to share my experience with you guys!

I have made it to 5:1 all by myself...with the "magnificent" AI, but the game glitched and whenever somebody was spotting someone, or the HQ guy was saying stuff, I could see the subtitles and the team feed next to the map in the lower left corner, but no sound was present, and so when I tried to call the extraction, the "extraction" sign was gone, and I stood there like a pinjata and no heli showed up...so I figured I take out the CD and put back in real quick...EPIC FAIL...I went to the dashboard!

Well....that being said, I have made it to 4:3 numerous times now, and died unfortunately. SO IT IS POSSIBLE TO GET THIS ACHIEVEMENT OFFLINE/WITHOUT FRIENDS!

I usually go for the first map...dunno what it's called...?...it's the day time one? AND NO, not in the DLC (dunno if the dlc has a day time last time map tho' :P)

ANYWAYS!
I usually go with 3 automatic rifleman (LEVEL 20 btw!!!), and give them the expert support training or whatever its called to make their suppresiv fire even more accurate, and on top of that, the 7.62 rounds (should be one of the last perks you unlock) and have one suppresing SOUTH, one a little to the EAST of that, and the other a little to the WEST of that.

Myself? I go with the grenadier, first and foremost because you have AT mines, and the M4 you carry has also a grenade launcher attached to it and it's great for taking out the humvees.

BUT! THIS IS WHAT YOU DO TO RUSH THROUGH levels 1-3!
You go back to the main area, in the house, there should be a SWAW (a RPG/Bazooka thingy) and get back, TARGET LARGE groups! and shazaaam! you'll be done with the first level in no time!

When you get to level 2:2 I think, that is when the first set of humvees come in, this should be YOUR FIRST PRIORITY!!! and let your guys handle the foot soldiers!

On level 4, I sugguest you keep your fireteam at the "FOLLOW ME" command, when you are too busy looking up in the sky to shoot down that nasty attack chopper, they can cover your surroundings...and be cannon fodder if there are anyone near by :P

REMEMBER! YOU HAVE 4 RESPAWNS! and if you should die, make sure on of your useless AI squadmates is a alive! So you can spawn on him! Press the Y to force deployment!

Wish I had a decent internet connection for my Xbox, I'm thinking this strategy would work great with two AI's and two Humans, the humans would take care of the APC's/Tanks/humvees/Heli's while the AI's would suppres the foot soldiers!

Anyways,
Hope this helps!

My friend was a rifleman I was a scout on Contested Front. We were on roofs opposite of each other and we took them out one by one. When the humvee's came he took them out. When helicopters came I took them out. It took us a couple of tries to get to 4:4.
