Not on my watch

Protect Chaffin from the soldiers in the street in Operation Swordbreaker

During the mission "Operation Swordbreaker", after you take out the sniper with the AT, you will move across the roof of the building to cover Chaffin's extraction. Use your sniper rifle and take out the enemies that appear, and the achievement will unlock after the ground team safely makes it across the street.

*It appears some people are having trouble getting this achievement to unlock even after performing the required actions. Until more information is available, try attempting this on different difficulties*

So i played this mission on hard, and the achievement never popped. I retried 5 times, he survived, and it never popped. Maybe a glitch? Does anybody else have this problem?

Not sure what you need to do for this achievement... also playing on hard, did it twice. =

I just got it. I tried it first on Hard and it didn't unlock. I redid it on Normal and it worked. What I did was killed as many of the enemies as quickly as possible then after I killed all the enemies and Doc thanked me I waited in the same spot and kill the enemies that came out after Doc was gone, it unlocked after killing around three enemies that were trying to get in the building I was in. I hope this helps. :)

i just got this and im playing on hard.. i just used the sniper got all people from rooftops and the 2 guys in the building and some guys hanging on the street.. after doc thanks you and you start heading back the cheevo popped for me.

i had the same problem last night. tried it a bunch of times, doc thanked me, dude survived and NOTHING!. Oh well ill try it when i go thru it a second time

Wednesday, October 26, 2011 @ 12:55:37 AM

It just popped for me, be sure to not restart any checkpoints. I just ran it on easy . If you die, you need to restart the mission.

Comment #18 by MvskokeGamer
Wednesday, October 26, 2011 @ 04:41:25 AM

Can't die but if you do you must reload the mission from the beginning after blowing up the sniper, make sure you kill some of the soldiers when they first attack and after doc thanks you, atleast kill 3 or four of the soldiers who start running at you after that objective clears. Should pop up after that.

Comment #19 by MvskokeGamer
Wednesday, October 26, 2011 @ 04:43:16 AM

Meant to put a period after "... the mission from the beginning." They really need to add an edit button.

Comment #20 by Freaknut
Wednesday, October 26, 2011 @ 06:18:32 AM

Yeah. Unfortunately you have to do it your first try. Just practice at the checkpoint until you get a good grove going, then restart the mission. Luckily it's short and easy to get back to.

Comment #21 by OneBgBdArtemis
Wednesday, October 26, 2011 @ 12:48:29 PM

So once again another fucking chievo that the best way to get it is to be on easy so you don't die and you can get it first 'bout, Protect Chaffin without dying, ? That would've given a little more explanation, oh well, they're only achievements huh? Now you have to wonder if doing that mission on easy and then redoing it on hard is going to screw up the finishing the game on hard chievo like Warhammer's is...

Wednesday, October 26, 2011 @ 11:49:05 PM

I think your not suppose to die. If you die you can't get the achievement. [My opinion, not sure c;)

Comment #24 by parryg101
Thursday, October 27, 2011 @ 05:36:00 AM

Here's a tip, it didn't pop up for me either at first but just after you protect rotect Chaffin another set of enemies start running down the street, start taking them out and it should pop up least it did for me.

Comment #25 by Gregor Lenko
Friday, October 28, 2011 @ 05:55:24 AM

Guessing it's the dying and restarting that caught me out.. Ah well another one for the easy run through.

Comment #26 by ViceralNephilim
Friday, October 28, 2011 @ 03:46:03 PM

Looks like its the easy run through for me! Crackin out the game on hard and its redonculously easy so far (well some of the levels)

Comment #27 by Hess789
Friday, October 28, 2011 @ 04:43:02 PM

You cannot die the entire level in order to get this achievement. So I recomend that you play on easy to get this achievement.

Comment #28 by Silicon Nation
Friday, October 28, 2011 @ 08:39:00 PM

Just make sure you don't die, and you will get it

Saturday, October 29, 2011 @ 05:18:17 PM

Kill as many as possible, try not to die but it may still work if you do! Also, Kill as many as you can as quickly as possible. Tactically.

Sunday, October 30, 2011 @ 05:44:24 AM

I honestly thought this was story related and couldn't be missed.

I didn't even help protect him, I just hid 'cause I couldn't see any of the enemy.

Comment #34 by z3r0SHADOW
Sunday, October 30, 2011 @ 05:52:00 PM

You can actually die during the mission, just not the part where you have to protect Chaffin.

Comment #35 by KleineKonig
Monday, October 31, 2011 @ 12:24:58 AM

So... pretty much don't die and it'll pop? Sounds like how the "Butterfly" achievement is :/

Comment #36 by Robs95
Monday, October 31, 2011 @ 05:09:00 AM

Did it on hard but didn't did get sure not to die when you have to protect him and kill the 3 who are running into the house

with no achievement. Freakin dumb.

I've played though on hard, easy, and now normal multiple times and still haven't got this one!

Wednesday, November 02, 2011 @ 11:59:04 AM

i played on easy, and i died but it still popped for me. after the doc thanks you some enemies come running toward your building, i killed four of them and got the cheevo

Comment #41 by SubVerBiaN
Wednesday, November 02, 2011 @ 01:21:19 PM

I got this my first play through on Normal. I didn't know it was an achievement. All I did was try to kill everyone on the roofs and street level and it unlocked right after they radio they are moving him to safety. Maybe you need to kill the people quickly is all?

Comment #42 by MICKY D 69rs

I got this on my first playthrough on hard. Take out the enemy as quickly as possible. Easy enough to do.

I did it on Hard and I didn't get it either, I did it on Easy and got the achi-
evement. Probably Just a Glitch.

Monday, November 28, 2011 @ 03:31:49 PM

I do think that it has to do with whether you die or not. Did it on Normal, died, no achievement. Replayed it on Easy and did the exact same thing without dying and it popped.

Comment #50 by ma717mgte
Sunday, December 04, 2011 @ 01:16:57 AM

Played on easy, Did die once by the sniper (my stupid mistake) once you help clear the street to get the wounded soldier out, I killed one as they say to get off the rooftop and the achievement popped then

Comment #55 by count35
Friday, December 30, 2011 @ 12:04:07 PM

I am playing on the hardest level and the only way that it will unlock is if you continue to shoot the guys after doc tell you thanks that is for sure the only way the achievement will unlock.

Comment #56 by Madbarons
Sunday, January 01, 2012 @ 03:28:20 AM

After you save the team and move off screen, keep watching the street and you will see loads of enemys run down the street. I just stayed on the roof and shot as many as I could then the aachievment popped.

Comment #57 by joshcb7
Monday, January 02, 2012 @ 12:53:17 PM

You have to wait and shoot the last group of guys after your team moves away.That worked for me first try

Comment #58 by Ryushiihardcore
Tuesday, January 03, 2012 @ 06:11:58 AM

You CAN die, I died a few times as I jumped the gun with the RPG and got sniped in the face. I killed all the enemies, then when they start to run towards the building you're standing on I took a few potshots at them, I killed two or three before this popped but you can die!

Friday, March 30, 2012 @ 01:45:21 AM

Jip, still glitched. Played the SP last night for the first time since launch date ( the MP is sooo damn good :p ) and it did not unlock on Hard, I tried a further 5 times to check if I missed something but nothing.

Comment #65 by FathomsDown
Thursday, May 24, 2012 @ 04:21:35 AM

It's not glitched (although that's a first for what has to be the buggiest XBox game ever), it's a "perfect run" achievement; you only get it if you get to this point in the game without dying or reloading the game.

Comment #78 by Selections
Saturday, February 23, 2013 @ 12:25:24 AM

Played on hard. No achievement. Replayed on easy, repeating the checkpoint 5 times. still didn't pop.

Restarted the entire mission, died once. But didn't restart the checkpoint when you start protecting Doc. Right at the end where most people say to kill 3-4 people, there's a guy on the left that runs behind a car. Kill him before he starts firing and throws the grenade. Popped as soon as I killed him.

I just pooped the little shit (no pun intent).
That's what you can/cant do to have this trophy / archiev:

-You can miss, at least one, target;
-Play on any dificult (i do on easy);

You can't:

-Restart level, load game OR DIE.
It must be done on a perferct run (like almost all archiev. of this game).
It sucks a lot, i daresay.
