Aliens: Colonial Marines

Aliens: Colonial Marines Achievements

... But No Cigar

Rescue a teammate from a Close Encounter   

This can be done in a co-op mission or in multiplayer. In co-op, you can easily have this by the middle of the second mission. The first mission, an alien can attack your partner and start a grab animation (where they're about to use their second mouth to bite them). Shoot the alien point blank with the shotgun for the achievement. In the 2nd mission, you can shoot a facehugger while your friend is pressing  from a close encounter for the cheevo as well. In multiplayer, when a teammate is pinned by a lurker, shoot or melee it before they're killed for the achievement.

I got this while playing through the campaign, just select one of the later missions which has you escort several NPC's wait for one to be pinned down by a lurker xenomorph & shoot him off.

#3 is right. Mission 9, the first building you enter go up the stairs and look for a burning lab (note: this is where the first dog tag is in this mission). You can hear a guy shooting a pistol and if you look around, he's behind a door that you have to cut open. Once its open a xenomorph will pounce on him. Kill it and you get the achievement.

I got this in mission 1. On the way up to the top of the Gravity Well. When you first enter the area just hang back for a few seconds while O'Neal heads through the first door. Eventually, one of the aliens will pounce him giving you the chance to get it.

I was playing on UB so took a few tries to get through this area.

Same exact thing as #6 Worked right when they pounced on him. I am also playing on UB.
