Kill the drivers of two of the MP vehicles in the Hughes Aircraft gun battle before they pull up.

During the final part of this case, you will be a gun battle outside of Hughes Aircraft. In order to unlock this achievement you will need to kill two different drivers before they pull up and get out of their vehicles. You will have the following four different opportunities to do this.

- The first vehicle will pull from left to right of your original position you start at.
- The second vehicle will come from the street behind you after taking out the first vehicle.
- The third and fourth vehicles will pull up a little bit further behind where the first car pulls up.

It is recommended to take out the driver's of the first two vehicles because those seem to be the easiest, and if you fail then simply run up to the remaining enemies, die, and try again. Listen for the horn to make sure you've taken out the driver. Watch the following video done by the guys from Achievement Hunter for some help.

Pursue Vernon Mapes from the burning house to Hughes Aircraft on your first attempt.

Towards the end of the case, you will need to investigate the house on 3941 West Second Street from the photographs you inspect at Tech Services in the police department. After searching around the house for clues, a Molotov cocktail will be thrown into the house. Escape from the burning house to see Vernon Mapes jump into his car and book it for Hughes Aircraft. Simply follow Mapes to Hughes Aircraft. Do not let Mapes get to far away from your vehicle and DO NOT focus on trying to shoot out his tires or running his goons off the road. Once Mapes pulls up at Hughes Aircraft the achievement will unlock and a gunfight will ensue.

Find and inspect the prop spinner at the Nicholson blast site.

At the beginning of the case, after taking care of the looters, you will be asked to search for clues at the Explosion Site. To the left of the coroner there will be a path the forks, follow down the path right to the end till you see an officer who tells you to inspect the metal pieces to his left. Complete the clue by lining up the bottom and top pieces of the prop spinner till it reads "P&W WASP MAJOR R-4360." Once you've lined up the pieces of metal the achievement will unlock.

I followed the how to guide from embedding Youtube videos into an achievement guide, but I'm not sure if I inserted it in correctly? The only thing I need is the video's URL, right?

EDIT: Figured it out. I was copying the embed URL rather than the one at the top of the browser!

thanks. that was the reason I put this together because I couldn't find one in the forums and I wanted to have something to follow for the achievements, just like all the other DLC cases =D.
