Hi all,

First of all I came on and was deciding, should I spend 20 on microsoft points and buy the Mortal Kombat season pass but I heard that had issues so I went for Nicholson Electroplating as I had already purchased the Rockstar Pass.

So I try downloading it from the Xbox Live menu but it says it 320 points which I didn't have, so I put in disc 3 (As it was an arson case) and did my 5mb update then I went to download the DLC as it had content owned - download next to it, so I press that and I get some error message saying it can't download, but when really it was and getting stuck at 99%.

So I turned off my console and stuck in disc 1, and then I did the same and it worked on the in-game download menu, so i then stuck in disc 3.

Well after going off topic slightly, the case was pretty cool seeing a A-bomb mushroom cloud was cool, but I like others on these websites like to get achievements, and trying to shoot 2 of those drivers was really screwing with me, I kept missing the first car as I have terrible aiming, so I kept getting killed and then messing up over and over, and then when I killed the driver, I go for the next car coming up the road and some civilian car knocks me on my ass and the guys gets out his car, I finally got this achievement after 22 attempts, my aiming really sucked, but stress over 54 out 60 achievements for this game now, almost to 1400.

Thanks for reading this uninteresting topic, haha

It took a few tries more than I would have liked, I was probably around 12-15 attempts when I got it.

I was the same. 20 attempts before I tried the way I posted here and got it second try.

Took maybe 20 tries, was a relief when I finally got it. :)

This case was for the record... a disappointment. Way to short, and too little questioning (which acording to me is the best part in L.A. Noire). Could definetly had been better, the trailer looked awsome as hell!

honestly I got this achievement on my second try, if yall purchased the rockstar pass or have the chicago piano, jus go to the trunk of your car, pull that baby out and clap the cars as they come (2 from the left, 1 from behind your starting position, 1 from the right if memory serves) you have multiple chances.

I agree 100%. The case was waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too fucking short.. beat it in about 25-30 min. guess I cant complain too much tho, rockstar pass was a great deal. now waiting for reefer madness.

I was able to get this on my second attempt. First time, I tried shooting the car with the pistol. I missed, so I let them kill me and went for the Piano when it reloaded.

I think it took me 2-3 times.
I wasn't really sure I had hit the drivers until it popped.

really hated this achievement.:mad: it took me around 10 tries, & I think I got it because of it some how glitching on me as on the 10th try. I missed the first car, but was able to nail the second car & it popped right after that

this DLC was okay but way to short as other than trying to get this frickin achievement, it only too about 30-40 min to complete. the explosion at the beginning was cool though, kind of reminded me of Megaton blowing up in Fallout 3

I swear this one glitched for me but in a good way. I only killed the driver from the left, heard the horn, ran towards the front of the warehouse. Saw the car turn towards me, it came to a stop and I shot him right before he got out of the car but he didn't die. And it popped right after!!! Weird because this kind of thing never happens to me. I got it on my first try.

I got the Achievement probably on my 10th attempt. It wasn't too hard. Just remember to pull out the Thompson from the back of your ride.

It took me also something like 10 tries :mad:

I never had the thompson in my trunk, always a damn shotgun which made this achievement harder :p

Yea i hit the driver of the third car as he drove towards me, turned around and hit the driver of the car coming from behind the bunker.

To be honest after i realsed where the cars were coming from it made it a helluva lot easier!

1300/1400! Roll on the next DLC!!

Yea it took me a while also. It was a really annoying achievement and I wished they chose better achievements for this DLC before it got certified.

Also, don't think I"ve seen you before Annalie, so HI :D

Hi nice to meet you shakes hand*:D
it was a very annoying achievement because out of the 10 times i tried, i would shoot the hell out of the windshield and they would both get out of the car unscathed. but then fall dead and the achievement unlocked. i didn't complain. 1300/1300:p bring on reefer madness.

Took me about 10 tries. Once I hit the driver of the first car, but the car that is supposed to come down the road never showed up, so I had to quit and resume back at the unknown apartment. About 5 tries later I ended up finally getting both drivers and the achievement.

Took me about 8 goes. I killed myself to reset the scene more times than i died in the whole game!

And yes the case was too short infact thats my 1 main gripe with the main game.

Would rather have less cases next time that are 2 to 3 times longer than the ones in this game.

06-22-2011, 06:04 PM
I tried about 15 times and then I put the Aim Assist on High and I got the achievement on the next try.. very easy when it aims for you :p

Same here man I got killed way more going for this achievement then actually completing the game.

I kept killing myself because I would shoot the driver then he would get out of the car and just fall over and die, I got mire when I kept firing the pistol at the 1st car and 1 of them got out, but I got the gun from the back of the car and the 2nd car came behind, so I kept shooting as much as I could, even when he stopped I was shooting from a dodgy angle but the achievement popped up and relieved was I

On my fifth try i got the achievement, so 6 times i played the chase leading up to it.

The last four times i managed to be ahead of the guy i was chasing and beating him to the area lol

The thing that kept me from doing it was the fear of dying too early and also once i ran into the car which knocked my over silly and by the time i got up they were all there which was annoying.

Then after thinking about the suit Hacksaw, did it again and like i said in another thread, just ran out from the parked car, shot the guy on the stairs, turned left and killed driver and got the achievement there and then. ^^

Must admit it's a pretty damn hard achievement for this type of game and ontop of that due to the length of time it takes before actually getting the opportunity also makes it possibly one of the hardest i've ever got.

And i've finished all call of duty games on Veteren. And this was in my eyes fairly hard to get but worth getting :)

You did not have to replay the chase every time. If you miss, just let Phelps get killed and it will reset at the beginning of the shoot out

Ugh...

Must have been about 20 tries. Even with the help on site. Worth it, 5 from 100%, Sadly I'm roadtripping for July, will have to wait til August I guess.

Wow, after reading this, I'm lucky to get all achievements first try. Just watched a video to know that I can get the machine gun and where the cars appear. 3min. prep and no hassle.

Best case in my opinion, although the ending to the naked city case was way cooler.

Got it on the 3rd shot. Once you learn where the first car pulls up, its pretty easy

Yeah, samesies.

First thing I did was wait for the very first car to pull up and I'd already be aiming where it stopped, unloaded a few clips. Moved in picked up a BAR and got lucky with the third car.

I can confirm that the cars can stop, but they still have to be in "driving position" when you kill them for it to count.

06-23-2011, 03:41 PM
it took me about 20-30 attempts. I got lucky because I shot one guy just as he was getting out the car and it still counted towards the achievement, I was totally not expecting the achievement to pop but it did :)

Thanks to the video guide, I actually got this on my 2nd attempt.

Did it all with my pistol though, as the guide shows you retrieving some heavier weaponry from the boot, problem was my car got banged up in the initial pursuit and the boot lid came off so I had no option to open the boot lol.

So glad I got it out of the way though, think I would have gone insane trying 20 times like some here!

Damn, everyone on here must be lucky or a quick learner. I started out this case with 3 deaths by gunshot. And by the time I got this achivement I had 44 or so, and they all happened right at that point trying to get that damn achievement. I also quit out and reloaded it about 10 times before that trying to save myself all the deaths. So it took me around 50 tries. :mad: Most ridiculous little achievement ever in my book.

06-25-2011, 11:02 PM
It took me about 5 times. It did glitch on me on my 3rd try though. I always missed the initial car so I went to the trunk and got the machine gun out and run up the street a little. This car tended to be the easiest to shoot the driver on. Well I killed him before the auto aim would lock on so I guess thats where the glitch came in. I went on and killed the one that comes from the left and waited for the achievement to pop and while i was doing that totally missed the last car.

This achievement is simple though with the machine gun...

I don't get it. I followed the video and got it first try.
I completely ignored the first car to pull up tho...
I went right for the piano gun in the trunk.
Stood in the street and capped the 2nd driver.
Went back to my car and capped the 3rd driver.
***cheevo-pop***

It just seemed so stupidly easy that I don't understand how people are having trouble with it....

Good luck people.....keep at it...

3rd try.

I shot the 2nd and 3rd cars instead of going for the first one. Use the Piano gun in the boot to make it easier.

Hey, how are you :)

Yea, I had the same feeling. I know body armour wasn't invented in 1947 yet but man they could take a lot of punishment LOL

Bring on the REEFERS!

What this guy said.
I did this first try when i increased auto aim sensitivity and with the tommy gun from the boot of the car. Just die and re-try if you screw up.
I was having no luck with the pistol (about 6 tries).

About 7-8 frustrating tries and I got it. Used the Chigago Piano and the Hawkshaw suit. Agree with the majority of the complaints about the DLC too. Way too short and the plot was pretty convoluted and hard to follow. Seeing the Spruce Goose was kinda cool though for anyone familiar with Howard Hughes.

I got lucky and got it on my 3rd attempt. the driver on the left had just stopped and I popped him in the head and it counted anyway. second driver was easier to get imo.

3rd try. The Chicago Piano helped.

It took me about 6 or 7 times.

2 times after I realized clicking the aim button and then taking 2 shots would reset my auto aim directly on their face instead of in the air.

Not terribly difficult, and I suck at the shooting in this game :P

Got it after a couple of tries but what I ended up doing was just taking out the drivers of the first car in front (couldn't get the driver in time, darn it), ran to the back of the car and picked up the tommy gun, pulled out in to the street to take out the first driver and then ran in to the parking lot and took out the second driver as he came around the corner (from the left).

Took me about five goes to get the timing correct, was happy when I did it though!

I stopped counting...stupid ass achievement. 1k DARKNESS II and PROTOTYPE 2 is even easier than this bullcrap...

Did it with THE SHARPSHOOTER outfit, AIM ASSIST at low and pistol of course.

1st time with the "piano".

Overall, about 10 attempts.
