Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Achievements

Ride of the Valkyrie

Get 50 kills with the Huey  

Get in any chopper and kill, kill, kill. If you can't fly a chopper get on the side guns so you don't crash and destroy it, they take awhile to re-spawn.

The Huey can be found on the map 'Phu Bai Valley'. Easiest way is Rush as attackers, which is probably easier as the defenders have no tanks to shoot you down. You can change the chopper controls from normal to inverted if that makes it easier for you.

It might help using the V WARHD spec. If you are not good with aiming do it on normal core playlists because hardcore playlists do not have reticules.

I have taken out 4 Hueys with my Uzi so far (Weak!). So flying around in paper mache choppers and getting 50 kills will be time consuming, especially since everyone is fighting over the chopper and ignoring all objectives.

Plus the fact that everyone is in vehicles.

Does it count if you're one of the 4th/5th passengers hanging off with side with your own weapons?

Turns out the Huey is made out of Cardboard. LMAO.
I hope it doesn't get patched though... it's fun to bring it down with a Pistol!

The best way to get this is to have the vehicle warhead perk on and go to one of the gunner seats, make sure you know someone whom is good at flying and will keep the huey stable, being shot down is inevitable but you should be able to get 4-5 kills every time you do this

Comment #11 by zippo ninja
Monday, December 27, 2010 @ 05:54:33 AM

Also the best map to do this on is Phu Bai Valley it's easier on Rush because your enemy won't have vehicle turrets to use

Just got my 50 kills tonight, its easier to fly the Huey yourself rather than shoot the machine guns if you have that option since most of the time people are fighting for a seat in the helli. If the health on the chopper gets around 50% you should take it around a hill or back to your base to heal. Having teammates in the gunners seats help if they are marking targets for you and everyone else on the team. Just have the gunners spam the back button while they shoot at people.

@ #9

It's not something that needs to be patched, it was designed like that.
The vehicles are older thus less sturdy and more susceptible to small arms fire.

I just unlocked this. I didn't go for this until Operation Hastings was unlocked and plaything that map on Conquest was by far the easiest way to get your hands on the Huey. If you have a good flier you can take guys down using the machine guns quite easily, even across the map. If not, drive yourself and use the missiles.

Not that it will take two barrages of missiles to kill enemies with full HP. Very very annoying. You'd think getting shot by 5 missiles would kill the common soldier... -_-

A tip, don't try and destroy tanks with the missiles, it takes forever and they can shoot you down in one hit, just not worth it.

Tuesday, January 18, 2011 @ 07:04:18 AM

I got this the other night. best map is Operation Hastings. Huey at flag A and D

to start I was not that good flying but getting better now after 50 kills ;-). another option I found usefull was to get in the huey but not fly it, just cover the flag area from the huey on the ground. can get a fair few kills, that way.

This heli needs fixing! Got more chance getting road kills than you do actually shooting its missiles!

It's not broken. It's a Vietnam area helicopter, it was designed to be a lot weaker then the normal games ones.

Yeah, vehicles kinda suck in Vietnam. I know that they're MEANT to be weak, but honestly, how the hell do DICE expect me to get 50 kills in a piece of crap that kinda be shot down in about 2 clips of an AK-47? Really?

Wednesday, April 20, 2011 @ 05:54:06 PM

Thats in Conquest lots of people sitting around flags trying to shoot you helicopter down and then repair every five minutes behind the hill while bagging more kills from flag defenders rushing the helicopter.

Comment #26 by UKGB Patriot
Sunday, April 24, 2011 @ 08:36:53 AM

Easiest way i found was go on the hastings map on rush, get in the helicopter and try to kill everyone ( the side guns are probably best to use) once the first point has been taken quit and replay the map i got 2-7 kills everytime so it didnt take too long

Comment #27 by O918
Tuesday, May 03, 2011 @ 05:18:00 AM

the helicopter shoots marshmallow rockets. even with warhead on... took me forever, but finally got it. I was doing it on phu bai for the majority of it, but the last 15 kills i did on hastings, which i found to be easier because there are better spots to park and repair. i would hide along the tree line until someone was spotted nearby (and away from enemy tanks) and pop up and blow them away. i would sit the heli down after each pass over to repair if it still had 90% health. now on to my last achievement-- demolition man.

Saturday, May 07, 2011 @ 12:26:39 AM

i only freaking have 77 heli kills in regular bad company 2 after playing it for 85 hrs (i guess without about 3 hrs total in the choppers themselves but those r completely different then these bleh)....this is ridiculous to get 50 unless i can figure something out

Friday, June 03, 2011 @ 04:03:50 PM

Got this one before I even checked my achievements. They may be cardboard, but they are fast. I gotten lots of repair points with a buddy and some fancy flying.

I have also found that if you use the 3rd person view while flying the heli's you can get in much tighter spaces. The other day I had a full copter, and we managed to captuer and then re-capture 6 bases before they finally shot us down. And all but one of us got out before it exploded!! 3rd person flying, plus probably lots of noobs on the other team, made for one fun heli session.

@1 ...its a reference to the third act of the opera by wagner called "Die Walkure" (The Valkyrie).

Comment #34 by CaseD
Sunday, June 05, 2011 @ 07:36:08 AM

#33 No it's not. It's a reference to Apocalypse Now which used the musical piece from Wagner's opera in a memorable part of the film involving helicopters.

Its not referencing the opera at all, it's referencing that musical piece in conjunction with the film. I had to reply to such a pretentious comment.

Comment #41 by 3Lions
Thursday, July 21, 2011 @ 06:46:04 PM

How do you boost this one?

The only way I know to get this 'legit' so to speak is to play as an engineer on Phu Bai or Hastings, lay some mines (A-B, A-C if you are a G.I. or D-C, D-B if you are Viet Cong) then jump in the heli and switch to a side gun, even if it just is sitting on the pad it will still count as a heli kill.

I still don't have this achievement (Haven't been trying for it) and only 9 Huey kills.

Comment #42 by shd
Thursday, July 21, 2011 @ 07:35:56 PM

I'm a pretty good pilot, still it took me 3 days to get 17 kills, then all of a sudden I got 20 kills in 3 games. I still have 13 kills to go, but hopefully it'll go faster than my earlier attempts. It all depends on if your enemies are camping the huey spawns with tanks or not. It's easy enough to just repair from normal bullets, but those one shotting tanks when you're taking off is a pain in the ass. Wish me luck :

This will come eventually if you just keep using it. Use the
Enginner Kit so you will be able to repair it since the Huey
takes a lot of damage. If the enemy team sucks, congratulations..
the you will be able to make some easy kills without taking to
much damage.

Comment #45 by The Danielnator
Sunday, August 07, 2011 @ 08:53:41 PM

Just got it, didn't take too long. Its hard if you have a bad team which doesn't really do a good job of attacking so that all the defenders just focus on the chopper and take it out. I did it on Phu-Bai Valley, had some good people pilot me, of which lilsting was the best, did some flying myself too. Just make sure to pick engineer with warhead and come back to repair if you're around 50, don't be afraid to go back and repair even if you didn't get any kills that run.

Comment #48 by StallordD
Monday, August 22, 2011 @ 12:43:33 AM

I just got to around 22 kills after spending way too much time on it. I get into a good position to shoot from the turret and then some idiot comes and literally drives the goddamn chopper into the ground. If someone would like to hold pilot seat while I shoot and vice-versa, send me a message. We would trade every ten kills or something.

Comment #50 by chrisk62
Wednesday, September 14, 2011 @ 05:04:08 AM

I was struggling with this at first as the the rockets on the huey can't seem to hit anything. I had only 2 kills from 30 mins in the huey but then thanks to some random hotshot helicopter pilot i got another 14 kills from the side guns in 10 minutes.

I guess you just need to get lucky with this if you are trying to get it legit, it's pretty easy if you have a random good pilot flying the huey that circles the targets. Operation Hasting on Rush Attack seems to be the best for it.

So ive got 16 kills, only 34 more to go :)
