Hi there and welcome to the Apache achievement guide. any information you have or I have missed please post it and I will put it in the guide.

co-op achievements can be done in single player as well as multiplayer that is why i have put all co-op achieves in the single player section.

Co-op achievements can only be done buy using 2nd controller and having a friend play with you or if you have no friends to play with you can sign someone in and play on your own. but this is hard as you have to fly with 1 controller and shoot with the other (this is what i did).

If you are playing the campaign on realistic you should unlock this as is some missions you will have to land to complete the mission. easy way to get this is to do the 2nd mission on realistic and look on your map for a blue H this is a landing zone and will be easy to spot because there is blue smoke next to it. all you need to do is land on the landing zone for this to unlock.

landing zones are useful because they repair and rearm your rockets Etc and its quicker to land then to wait 3mins for your rockets to spawn.

Misc
Can be on any mission or on free flight.

Bumper Stickers!60 Unlock twenty decals
Decals are unlocked by completing Campaign missions and the Squad Operations.


Skin Deep60 Unlock all skins for all helicopters
Skins are unlocked by completing Campaign missions and the Squad Operations.

Sting Like A Bee30 Kill 9 enemy air units with the FIM-92 Stinger missiles
Fim-92 stingers are the air to air missiles. all you need to do is lock onto an enemy helpicoper and fire. (may have to shoot more than 9 down i personly think i was on close to 15 when i got this achievement)

Hell Yeah30 Kill 114 enemy ground units with the AGM 114 Hellfire missiles

please see "Ripple Effect".


Rocketman30 Kill 70 enemy ground units with the Hydra 70 rockets

Hydra rokets are the rockets the fire straight ahead and DO NOT lock on these are i think the best wepon in the game because you normaly have 30+ rockets and they respawn in a a few seconds . so you can spam an area with rockets then wait for a respawn the spam again.

should get this during the campaign but if you didnt load up the 2nd mission as this has lots of ground targets for you destroy then keep repeating this mission untill it unlocks.


Note: rockets only have to hit near them in order to destoy them (most of the time).

Gunfighter30 Kill 30 enemy ground units with the 30mm cannon

you should get this naturally over the missions but if you havent got it by the end of the campaign please see "sticky triger finger" for easyist place to do this.

Keeping It Real15 Play one mission entirely in cockpit view

easyist done on the second mission, as soon as the mission starts before you take off pause the game and go to game options then change the view to "cockpit" and complete the mission without changing view ( do not press Y ) you can still use the 30M cannon by pressing the B button.

Peppy’s Request15 Do a barrel roll

to do a barrel roll you need to be on realistic as training wont let you roll the apache.
1st thing you need to do is get some altitude 400+ and put it into auto hover, then push both sticks in the same direction while trying to keep the right stick level. if your getting it right you will hear you co-pilot say something like "show off" you might have to do it a few times for this achievement to unlock.

Sticky Trigger Finger15 Using the 30mm cannon, kill 20 enemy infantry without letting go of the trigger

on the 3rd mission you will have to protect a downed apache and it will be swamed by lots of infantry. make sure you have 1000+ 30mm rounds and as soon as you see the 1st enemy start shooting but do not stop untill you have the achievement. do not shoot the downed apache or the pilots as you will fail the mission and have to start all over again.remember you can zoom while in gun vire by holding the LT and pressing B a second time will put you in thermal view which helps you spot the enemy easyer.

What, No Roflcopter?30 Complete free flight on each helicopter



select freeflight from the main menu , then change to thses settings:

Ground units - hostile
Number of allies - 7
Allied aircraft - Veteran
Enemy skill level - Rookie
Number of enemys - 1

the rest of the settings is up to you , all you then need to do is destroy all enemys to complete the mission.

Aircraft :
AH-64D longbow
AH-64X
Apache AH-1
MQ-8B Fire scout
MI-35 Hind


See It, Shoot It 10 Enable setting “Control Turret in Zoom” and kill 5 enemy infantry by gun in this mode

for this achievement you need to pause the game and go to game options and enable control turret in zoom, all this does is when your flying the apache you can shoot your 30MM cannon without pressing B. to aim your cannon all you need to do is hold the LT and move the little crosshair and aim it at some infantry and shoot.

for best place to do this please see "sticky triger finger"

Ripple Effect15 Kill 8 ground units with a Hellfire ripple shot

for this achievement you will need to have 8 hellfire missles, then select a taget by pressing A on them But if you hold A over a target you will get a cevron (upside down V) over the target do this for 8 tagets all in one go then fire your missles. you will see you apache fire 8 hellfire missles in one go and destroy all the tagets you have selected.

I Can Dance All Day15 Avoid 15 incoming missiles by using anti-missile defense system

This achievement should come naturally as you cannot physically use flares instead when you see MISSLE in the middle of your screen you should notice that flare will automatically launch and say MISSLE LOST this means you have avoided the missile. Flares will only launch if you have flares you can see how many you have by looking next to your altitude at the side of the screen.

Should probably be four (?) online achievements I think- Helicopterific requires you to complete squad ops, so you can't get it unless you play online and get Squadrowned. Also unless you do the squad ops missions you can't get all the decals/skins so I guess the get all decals/skins achievements should be classed as online too really?

Might want to check the Guide guidelines before you get to far in. The team only like them in a certain layout

I'll even give you the link: http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...d.php?t=180629

Barrel Roll

Good guide bro.You might want to update the guide, for the barrel roll achievement to pop you have to be moving forward while you flip the heli. I tried it sitting still and nothing happened several times, when I was moving forward I got the co-pilot to say that everytime. Be careful not to run into the ground!

Could use the Acheivement Tiles and correct Roadmap format. Do you need direction to how to get these? Would make it look much better!

I agree. Although i see what you are trying to do with the layout of the guide. It hasn't really worked.

As Tyger said, I think you should format in the the standard way with tiles, font and fix the layout a little.

Oh and change the online achievements from 1 to the correct number.

The 10-15 hours to complete is an excellent guess.

But to do that you really don't want to complete the game on training first so why are 2 playhtroughs recommended? Or is that singleplayer on realistic + squad ops on training= 2?????

I really recommend to start this game on training right away. Also for the not dying achievement you should combine that with the 'beat a mission on veteran' achievement since that will unlock it as well.

Seriously though don't play through this game on training it's just not meant to be played that way.
