XI Comatose IX's Gamercard
Very Easy Gunning Achievement

While trying to get this achievement, on my first try. I discovered a sorta glitch that makes this achievement beyond easy.

What you need to do is do something that will get a strike squad called in on you, When the strike squad comes in Hijack a Helicopter.
Take out the rest of the Strike squad and any remaining helicopters that are gunning for you.

Now ascend/fly up as far as you can go and stay that high.

If a helicopter spawns while you are ascending, while at your full ascent, take it out or wait for it to fly out of range and disappear.

Now when helicopters spawn, a red icon with the picture of a helicopter and an arrow will appear on the screen telling you where an enemy helicopter is.

But because you are so high up, when they spawn, They spawn frozen in the air, they dont move around, and they dont attack.
Just target the chopper and fly close enough into range to take it out and then wait for the next one to spawn and take it out. Rinse/repeat.

Sometimes when the little report that tells you the value of you damage and casualties comes up it takes a few seconds for the next chopper to spawn, Just wait it out and you will have 20 helicopters in no time, like shooting fish in a barrel.

I reset my game just to make sure this was not something that only effected my current session and it still worked.

Yea this worked for me yesterday, but I don't think you have to ascend as far as you can go. As long as you have a strike team chopper they will remain frozen I think.

I died after shooting 13 down and after reloading the checkpoint i shot another 7 and got it so it doesn't look to be 20 in a 'single' flight.

Excellent glitch!
If you notice the red line to go away, look around the sky, there's always copters just chillin' motionless. Shoot 'em down!!

There is an even easier way.

Go to an event called "Raining Fire", there is a chopper next to it, get in and decline the challenge.
Fly to an event called "Death from Above", on top of that tall building is another chopper.
Get in front of the building and kill the new chopper, lower the altitude to around 20-30 feet above the street and then ascend back to the top and kill it again.
Repeat until you get 20.
It takes 2 shots with the middle missile and 1 with the heatseeker to kill it.

The heli's you kill don't have to be manned

Funny -- I JUST finally figured out exactly how to do it, get the achievement, and then understand the easier way to target (using the R-Stick). xD

Yeah they do - I did this last night and kept "evading" strike teams, if nothing spawns for a couple of minutes just fly in any direction for a couple of minutes, they should start respawning.

I just actually fought off the choppers, simply use the 'machine gun' type weapon, takes choppers down in no time. No need to ascend or whatever. But still helpful I guess to those who haven't done it yet.

When it says destroy 20 in a single fight does it mean destroy 20 before you die or what?

I got this without even trying for it when I was doing the "Friendly Fire" event. I just kept flying backwards shooting guided rockets at the other helicopters when they spawned. Just watch the minimap to see where they spawn and fly backwards facing them. Easy.

It means you have to destroy 20 helicopters while you're inside a helicopter. If your helicopter gets destroyed before you kill 20 helis, you have to do it all over again.

this is going to sound really bad, but are you guys friggin retarded or what? It says one flight not fight. Use a single heli to destroy 20 others before yours gets destroyed. I've seen achievements with sketchy wording, and this one couldn't be more clear.

BTW, you don't need to glitch it, steal an attack chopper and fly around for about 20 minutes, destroy every heli you see while you are high up. It took me a whole one try once I did do it. I understand trying to find the easiest way, but when a glitch is harder than just doing the thing, thats a bit crazy.

Gunning

I did this on the mission where you [Infiltrate the Blackwatch Air Wing], for some reason while shooting at the Hydra, I could shoot down as many helicopters as I wanted, without my alert being raised. I was up pretty high, to avoid the cars that the Hydra throw. (Like others have stated)

Another thing to do is complete an event with a helicopter and then wait for helicopters to appear. They already think you're a good guy, and they don't move when you blast them down one at a time. Just shoot enough missles to do the job so they can radio an alert.
