This is how to get "sitting duck"

Okay so after 3 hours of trying to get this with some other people, we finally all achieved it and it was all done with the same strategy. This strategy was figured out after numerous trial and errors.

1. First is to get the EMP strike (obviously)
2. Next have 2 or more enemy planes fly straight until they become close together.
3. Then the enemy planes need to climb upward together.
4. While they are doing this the person with the emp strike needs to follow them.
5. Now the tricky part the whole thing depends on the enemy planes sticking together while they are climbing altitude because if they do not the missles will seperate and miss.
6. Now the person who has the emp strike needs to within 800m - 1200m when they hit the x button to start the emp, immediatley needs to hit the a button to fire the missiles. As long as you were directly underneath them you will not miss.

Now the setting we had were, realistic with guns always upgraded (this just takes away from getting the cannon upgrade) and gives you a better chance for the emp strike. The losing team also has the better chance of getting the emp strike so let the other team build a ten kill lead.

Every one also used the F-22 raptor

Getting the different kind of "badges" (like emp, gun upgrade) are totally random right?

Me and my brother are kinda trying to get the counter-assault and the Sitting duck but getting the right kinda badges at the right time is very hard and frustating...

me and 2 other guys did this last night.
we had the guy doing the EMP get killed 4 times and he shot down the ace.
that way he got the EMP strike.
also we all got this on first try.
we had a distance of 1100 meters and the one doing EMP was always on the blue team.
Tried on the green team but then he didnt get the EMP.

and the rest like Gator says. going up

I'm going to try this tactic, but I also was thinking of another tactic. I haven't tried it yet but my plan is to have at least 2 teammates climb up to at least 3000 and one of them obviously have the EMP strike. Hoping that you get a couple of planes follow you, turn around and go head to head and 1st fire the missles and then hit the EMP. Both steps have to be done nearly at the same time otherwise you'll give them time to dodge the missles. The reason why I'd fire the missles first is so that they hit before the planes hit the ground, unless you're flying at 10000, in which case it wouldn't matter.

The problem with this is that as soon as the emp kicks in the planes drop like a rock and you missiles will not catch them or they will just miss, I have tried that one.

Yesterday I finnaly got my EMP "wildcard" in a match with 2 friend, shot them both to 10 health, had them fly together, aimed my mutli missiles, hit the X button and took the shot....

They dropped like bricks and the rockets could not catch up....



I'm gonna try your way now gator, hope it works out

Hey Sick | Gator, maybe you should add that you'll have to select an Airplane wich has an EMP Warfare perk otherwise you'll never get the EMP Strike wildcard.

Maybe I'm just stupid but I discoverd the whole Perk system (LB while in Plane Selecting) yesterday while playing and I'm on 910/1000 so I guess (hope! ) I'm not the only one with this problem haha.

you can get the emp strike in any plane, has nothing to do with the weapon packages. electronic warfare is the "target override pod"

Your plane does not have to be marked with the blue crap. As soon as you hit the X button to start the EMP strike all your hits count towards this achievement.

I flew behind 2 airplanes, launched my missiles and hit the EMP strike. Killed one plane before the blue crap and the other during -> achievement unlocked!

It's a tricky achievement, even with boosting so it may take a while.

Hmmm i once had a Code of Conduct cause of my gamer motto: "Achievement Whore", banned me from xboxlive for a whole week.

I already have the General of the Airforce and Sitting Ducks achievement so you won't receive a FR from me

Ive tried boosting it for 3X 15min rounds and no damn EMP... The EMP strike pretty much only comes to you when you are actually behind in score so I keep the other 2 against me about 10 points ahead and I still dont get it and its making me wanna eat babies.

I can confirm the planes do not have to be effected by the blue lightning, got this 2nite in a ranked match - got up high (about 5000 ) and dropped down on to all four enemy at a range of 2000 - 3000 launched all four multi missiles waited for a few seconds then kicked the emp in - got 3 of them, so it can be done without boosting - just keep trying. Only been trying to get this for a few games.

The hard part about this achievement is actually getting an EMP strike... takes like a whole 15 min game to get 1 or 2 at most. Then you have to try and not mess up...

Using the method above (thanks Gator) is almost full proof. I let the my 2 friends kill me till they both had almost 10 kills on me and i got the emp almost right away.
then I just worked them down to about 25% health and using gator method by climbing strait up behind them about 1000m away worked for me first try.

And I got the emp with 7min left in the round to there was plenty of time

obviously a pain of an achievement. Even more of a pain when you get it but it doesn't unlock when you get the challenge. So i hope that i just have to do it again or something? I just hope this isn't like that Mercenaries 2 Trash.

After you hit the X button to use the EMP the planes dont drop immediatly, there is about a 2 second delay before they start dropping so dont try and worry too much about firing the missiles and EMP at the same time but if your within 100-250m dont fire the missiles first because there is a chance you will kill them before you use your EMP

I just got this achievement a couple of nights ago. Did everything described by Sick | Gator with one variation that I think made it easier. Once the boosting player had EMP strike, instead of following the target players into a climb, we had the boosting player climb to about 10,000 then descend towards the other two that were climbing. Launch missiles, wait a couple seconds until missiles are halfway to hitting, drop the EMP strike and the missiles hit targets head on for the kill. Also did this using 'Realistic' mode so we didn't have to weaken the target jets to ensure a kill.

Hope this helps anyone still trying to get this one.
