it was either half of the enemies dropping into last stand when i hipfire, or squad AI missing obvious targets. some enemies magically stand up halfway thru the flash duration, it was just aggrivating because i won by using the same strategy i used for forever. only thing that changed, is the game decided no BS on that particular run thru.

not to mention i shot the damn VIP TWO TIMES!!! lol the first time it happened last night i nearly cried, then after the second choke i was determined!

That's your problem - you followed a strategy you saw to the letter.

You should of just got a feel for your own - it took me a couple of attempts once I'd worked out my pattern and *bleep bloop*.

I finally got it this afternoon. Took me about eight tries or so to get it, but it took me over two hours last night of just trying over and over again to the point of frustration too immense to continue playing.

Personally, I killed the guy in the washroom and ran up to shoot the guy in the doorway and took the left path. Other than that I just followed the same strategies and paths as the guys on YouTube. The only way to finish this mission is to get lucky. That's all I've found out.

This was quite possibly the hardest, most annoying achievement that I ever got. I damn near cried when it popped. (TWSS)

I used this, so thanks to the uploader:

CoD 4: MHC (Veteran) - The Full Tutorial - YouTube
I just did this in under 45min. Very important hint: don't rush with the headshot!! I didn't notice the timer reset to 4 sec in the end and killed the hostage like 4-5 times cause I thought I had less time >_<

I only used this video, it shows the best path and the places to throw flashbangs. For the rest you just need some luck (I often got killed because I got hit by the toilet guy's dying shots or because my team mates didn't take out the guy in the right in the first room). At the end I flashed and ran and shot 3-4 guys from up close, I died a lot there but most of the time they try to melee you and miss cause you keep running. When you know their positions just start shooting a little before you can see them or they might hit you first.

Personally I found the 9 minute mission in the nuke base on Veteran harder than this one.

Now to kill some tv's and steal some laptops...

Here's my guide on doing Mile High Club. First ever video so the audio isn't smooth flowing, but I'll get used to it in time!

I just can't get this, everytime I go upstairs the guy that is behind the other hallway kills me, I fire to through the wall but he is like invincible, I just don't know how to do it, it's freaking frustating.

I Admit this was a real though one. There are also a few youtube movies thay might help. You just need to know where to throw the flashbangs. Some say you need to swith to pistol. To be honest that really didnt work for me. I finaly beaten it with only my smg and knife. So i've any has trouble with this too only fucus on where to trow the flashbang and keep you own playstyle.

I had been trying to nab this achievement off and on for the last 4 years. Finally, I got it after a good 2 hour stretch of failing. I had even got to the end and ended up shooting the hostage a few times. Knowing where to throw flashbangs is essential.

Here's the video of my run:

Not sure if anyone mentioned it yet, but when you hide behind most walls prone, you can wallbang the enemies. This helped me kill most of the enemies. Like the little wooden wall when the plane shifts.

First time getting there: Shot the other dude in the leg. Not good enough for Veterans mode apparently. Second time: Missed. Third: Actually beat the mission.

Basically the same for me, make it the first time I screwed up my shot and hit the bad guy in the stomach. 2nd time I hit the hostage and the 3rd time was sweet success.

I don't know whats more frustrating: Me getting stuck on random pieces, getting blocked by useless AI team mates, them not being able to kill enemies, or guys running in a room, I throw a flashbang, they all get blinded, except for that one random dude, who just keeps running and shoots me in the head. And no, he wasn't in cover... This sucks and I actually for the first time ever threw my controller through the room
EDIT: I made up my mind: The most frustrating thing is definately the FU**ING USELESSNESS of the team mates, as they don't seem to do shit, except for being slow and occasionaly standing in the way -.- This is absolutely ridiculous, and has nothing at all to do with testing your skills. It's just pure luck. I'd say it would be even easier, if your team mates weren't there. I just actually threw a flashbang on one of those lil fu**ers head, because he just popped his head out, where the last cluster of enemies is... I hate this part so much!

Finally got this one; a huge relief to have bagged the so-called achievement of this generation. The tips here helped quite a bit. The only thing I would add is that the double-hop to shoot the guy at the end is the only way to do it. . . don't be a hero and shoot the hostage like I did the first time I got to that part. You put in enough time just getting there, why would you want to mess it up?

I hate this achievement, and I hate this level. I loved that game before I spent hours on this single achievement.

I hate this dumb teamates that are absolutely useless and start shooting at enemies AFTER they killed you. I hate them so much for not stick to my ass and keep pulling the trigger of their guns on whatever shows in the way.

I hate this retarded SAS member you're supposed to be, taking his time when grabbing a new weapon to check if the color suits his socks, if it's not rusted and if the weight is well, before being able to shoot. You're supposed to be a overtrained soldier, why does it takes you minutes to reload your weapon ?!

I hate Infinity Ward and this absolutely bad walkpath that makes you being blocked if the tip of your shoulder even brush against a doorway like you had a giant elephant sized butt.

This is the latest achievement I have to unlock on this game, and the moment I will succeed (because I will.), i'll uninstall this game, spit on the DVD, put it in his steelbook, spit on the steelbook, put it on my shelf and NEVER EVER remove it form here.

This was written after my 100th attempt (above), and 2 hours of intensive tries, in an absolute anger.

I tried about 1000 times and finally got it. No joke. Like 120 times an hour (sometimes the bathroom dude killed me as I ran by, usually twice in a row for some reason. Took about 8 hours of play.

I used this:

It helped a LOT. And really I mostly only used flash bangs the time I beat it. Until the upper floor I didn't shoot at all. Just flash, run past stuff. Your guys will move up then and clean up for you. Once you get upstairs flash the middle room and run in and shoot those guys. RELOAD. Then flash the last hall, run through and hope no one is doubled over in your way - that messed me up a lot. At the last corner with the three dudes just spray and go through.

The biggest tip is DO NOT FLASH YOURSELF. AT ALL. It stops your run and will get you killed. Toss, hide, and after you heard it pop, THEN move.

Getting through the first bunch of enemies on each floor quickly enough is where the most time is lost. If you don't get through either doorway fast enough, more enemies will continue to flood in, so throw a flash and storm in, you don't have to kill every enemy but do have to kill most of them or they will just annialate you in a split second. You need to get up the stairs, throw your flash n get to the grenade refill with about 20 seconds left. Make sure both your guns are fully loaded, don't take too long by the grenade refill though else a guy hides behind the right of doorway. If he's hiding there edge to your right and kill him and then throw your flash, kill the few guys in the hallway, u can ignore the guy behind seats as long as you run towards the end of hall and can kill the next two flying round corner at you then you should be able to just run to door without further resistance and hopefully in time. That's how I did it anyway. Took about 3 or 4 hour longish sessions to finally get it. Once your comfortable getting up the stairs in a good time (25/30 seconds left), if you don't get the first four with flash (blatantly robs you of blinding them even though its landed right on them and it blinds you instead a good ten metres away) you should just let them kill you as there is another four at least who will fly in pretty much straight after them and by time you've dealt with them all you will of wasted too much time. I switched my pistol for the Uzi off guy in bathroom at start but only used it as backup as it seems to take longer to reload than the one you start with and has more recoil, basically its OK up close but a bit too bouncy at a distance.

I watched a guide on youtube and memorized every step. Took about two hours to beat. Actually made it to the end 2x but missed the headshot at the end the first time. :/
I spend more time trying to figure out what to play than I do actually playing.

I have made it to the damn hostage situation about 6 times. I'm always in such a rush, I fail to realise that when you get there it adds a few second on the timer. I mess it up every single time!
