Call of Duty: Black Ops Achievements

Double Whammy

Destroy both helicopters with one Valkyrie rocket from the deck of the ship.  

In the level "Redemption", during the objective to destroy the helicopters with the Valkyrie Rocket Launcher, you have to wait until the two helicopters converge near each other and then fire the rocket. You want to aim between the two and then detonate the rocket by holding down . If you are playing on a higher difficulty, you may have to run for cover inside an alcove. You can determine where the two helicopters are by the yellow markers on your HUD/screen.

In the mission 'Redemption', when you finally land on the boat, you'll come to a point where you'll need to destroy 2 helicopters. Grab the Valkyrie rocket and head to some cover. Wait until the helicopters are close enough, easy to find out if you look at your HUD, and shoot with the RB button and then guide it in between them. Detonate the rocket at the moment it is in between both helicopters.

As soon as you grap the Valkrie Launcher, the first chopper is in the air and just to the left of the chopper that hasn't started to fly yet. Quickly shoot the Valkrie just off to the left of the chopper that's in the air. Don't hit it but let the rocket fly past it and after a second of passing it press RT and blow up the Valkrie rocket. Now the chopper should be above the second one on the landing pad. Shoot a second rocket quickly and hit the chopper in the air this time. If you did it right and quick enough the chopper you hit will blow up and land on top of the second chopper and cause it to blow up as well. Hope that helps you all.

It might take a few tries but on recruit difficulty you get plenty of time and rockets to try!!

I ran to the stern of the ship where you jump off the helo, and both helicopters sort of hover right next to eachother over the top of the structure right over the soviet flag

The trick for me was actually to move out to the right side of the ship next to
the Valkyries initial location and after a few seconds the two helos begin to
swap sides with one another. As they pass if timed right you can hit both easily.

I'm actually having quite the difficult time trying to get this achievement. It seems seems like I'm making it harder than it really is.

wow...I didnt know you could detonate the rocket. I did it the hard way by waiting till the two helicopters were close enough, then I shot the tail end of one copter which happened to be just close enough to the other to cause it to blow. IT TOOK FOREVER THIS WAY!!!

I just waited till the chopper that was in the air went above the chopper who was taking off and right when the chopper took off I shot and then unlocked

Even on veteran the helicopters wont kill you. I mean, literally, you can
just stand there, and they wont kill you. They'll injure you, but not kill you.

I Got this one as soon as I picked up the valkyrie. Once you grab it you can run over by the wall and a chopper ends up pretty much right above your head. When he is by you fire it over and then press RT to detonate it once you get over the wing and then youll get both of them with ease.

I did this on Veteran. I grabbed the Vals and ran back toward the landing pad. I stayed to the side of the wall to the right before you you get back on to the heli-pad and looked up and they just sat there for about 5 seconds on top of each other.

Struggling on this one.... It seems like I'm detonating right where all the videos show (slightly in front of the farthest heli and just at the tail of the foremost heli) just can't get it though.

It can take awhile and depends on luck a great deal. I just spent about half an hour trying before I got it. My friend got it on his first go. Talk about frustrating

I really think the thing is to wait like #4 said, wait until they cross over, you get used to the timing and can then shoot them both down fairly easily, took me about 10 min

it didn't take me nearly as long to line up the shot, i just hid in the metal storage unit and waited to see the icons move closer together.

funny story on how i got this achievement i had actually accidentally hit one of the choppers in the rear rotor and it spun and crashed into the other one but at least i still got the achievement may have not been the proper way but it was effective

Hey guys, i found this achievement very EASY to get. I got it on my first try
with 2:20 remaining on the clock. All you have to do is kill the first 2 guys you come across and the next 2 you can kill on the ship. Once your on deck of the boat just run around the others and go behind the life boats. They didn't even fire a shot at me :)

Just wait until one of them flies over the other and detonate the rocket between the two by pressing RT while in flight.

I don't know how to do this but my guess is that u have to blow up the valikrie rocket in-between them very closely

this one was tricky. I finally got this when I went to the heli pad at the back of the ship. you go there and you have clear skies and as soon as they begin to move to cross paths, you fire. by the time the rocket gets there, the helicopters will be near each other and then you detonate. you don't have to worry about being killed by the helos (at least on recruit difficulty). so just stand on the big H. have some patience and wait for them to cross each other. and if you fail to kill both, just save/quit and then reload the game save.

This achievement may be accomplished on Veteran difficulty. As observed above, the helicopters do not inflict a high amount of damage, so you can hang in there and dance with them until they come together close enough for you to take your shot.

Nearby where you pick up the Valkyrie, there is a entrance way in which you can chill and compose the target. It may have taken me over a dozen attempts at Veteran difficulty, but I got the achievement. My strategy was to shoot between them and release the charge. Patience was the key.

Got this on first playthrough. Timing is everything. I was having trouble with it until I re-read some of the posts here advising that the trick is to detonate the missle BETWEEN the two helicopters. There are times when they converge on one another. It is brief so you have to be ready for it. I just hung out under a metal overhang and watched their patterns for awhile. Press RT to shoot, guide to space between them, then press RT again to blow up missle. Both go down.
