in the beginning when hes in the building accross you? i managed to snipe and kill him. (i have done this about 6 months ago so if im not making sense on this next part dont make fun of me. I hid behind a table(?) near the pistol in the room you are. I think the pistol is near it. So just snipe him while hiding behind the table and boom. Hope i at least moderatley helped.

I just threw this game back in to go acheivement hunting and got to this part on veteran and remembered why I put the game down in the first place. This is one of those "Call of Duty Battle of Attrition" moments where you just need to do it a thousand times until the game takes pity on you and decides to let you keep going.

They seem to like putting these nigh-on impossible parts in every game.

Either way, you can sort of see him flinching and running around - if you know what window he just fired from, watch it to see which direction he goes and watch the next window over. He'll usually pop out of it eventually and you need to have your scope up and breath held when he does or he'll just quickscope you before he's even completely out of cover. Once you shoot, you have to hit h

him twice so bail real fast before he tags you and do it all over. Try to keep the controller out of the TV screen too;).

Watch for the decoy. If you see a helmet with a flashlight on it, don't shoot. Let the helmet bob about 4-5 times and then the sniper will poke out of that same window. Make sure you're ready for him then beat some hasty "strategic retrograde motion" (ie run away) before he tags you back. Some random number of attempts later, it'll work and off you go.

OK, just got him - probably about 30 respawns - good place to get the purple heart acheivement I guess. I did it from not the room where Reznov is but the one just before that. Alternate between the window in the right wall (you can get line of sight on the right 2.5 windows) and just to the right of the door to Reznov's room (LOS on the left 2-3). Keep tucked in and just watch the last 1 or 2 windows. If you're out where you can see 3 or 4, that means he can tag you from those 3 or 4 and you'll never acquire him in time.

I also had to tag him 3 times, not 2. Headshots don't matter so just aim for centre mass since it's bigger.

Try to be strafing out of the way as you shoot, and always move every time either he or you fires a round.

Hope that helps.

I just obtained this achievement. Since you have to shoot the sniper at least 2 or 3 times, I found that the best way to accomplish this is to take a position that confines the sniper to use only one window.

Take position in the far left corner of the room to give yourself a clear, angled view of the far right window of the sniper's building. He will be forced to shoot from that window alone, which will eliminate the frustrating guess work. If you do not have a clear shot, simply side step to the left to safety and try again in 5 seconds. The first time I used this strategy, I easily made it past this checkpoint.

At #6

I had difficulty with this as well. I found that the easiest way to get past this part is to pick up the mp40 on the table, run forward to the doorway and toss a couple of grenades to keep the Germans at bay, and then to back up into the room and gun down the dogs as they run at you. I gave up trying to get the timing right to break their necks after several attempts. Hope this helps.

For the sniper, I went downstairs to the only window, you have a lot more cover there. Position yourself so you can only see the far right window and wait him out. As I’m sure you know, if he gets a shot off, you’re dead, so take quick shots and immediately move left out of his line of sight. You need to hit him 3 times. I didn’t bother steadying my aim, I just took whatever shot I had then moved left. It took me 10 shots to get 3 hits. It might not be the most glamorous way to get it, but it worked.

I really hate the sniper part on this mission. Took about 100 tries, and I never raged so hard in my life.

This was probably one of the most difficult veteran missions ever. I finnially got lucky though. The most annoying parts was Reznov over there, like "You only wounded him!" "Ah, you just grazed him!" "It was just a DECOY!"
