This is gonna be fucking hard. Or then again, if the ricochet sniper is a bit like that ricochet gun from the jak games this will be easy as fuck.

i was trying for a few matches to do this. the ricochet is pretty tricky. it is "realistic" in that the rounds will bounce in all directions. i am thinking that there is a certain map and section with completely vertical walls that we need to find. that is the only way i see it happening...

this achievement is actually pretty easy you just have to get a powerful ricochet sniper and then play on a lower level and shoot at the ground right in front of a group of enemies and chances are it'll bounce off the ground then hit off each enemy in the group

i got this achievement last night. i was playing online on The Pacific: Volcano level. I was working towards getting gold and the turret placement and kill challenges. The sniper rifle i was using is the level 10 fighting wolverine. as you look at the longest spawn stretch with the base right behind you, enemys were coming from that far left spawn site. i was in the thick of it just shooting away and suprise, i got it. i think i was shooting at some of those breakers (the ones that you must first hurt with explosives) so the rounds hit the ground, then the breaker, etc. then got the kill. completely unexpected but i think that is how i got it...

Pretty easy to get when you know what to do.

Go to the Beach in Europe. Equip 2 Wolverine sniper rifles. Aim below and in front of groups. Was a bit concerned about this one, but doing what I listed netted me it on my first attempt.

You know you're doing it right as you'll see your tracer hit the ground then bounce up and kill your first target. It should then bounce between the group if they're bunched up nicely.

If you are having difficulty on them clumping enough on approach. Wait for them to swarm the boat and then fire. It really is easier than it sounds, and I'm a terrible sniper in "most" shooters.

No "real" need for crazy crowds like on Volcano.

Not nearly as difficult as it sounds. Video guide here:

Make sure to equip 2 Wolverine sniper rifles and some form of
Fortify/Quickload legs.

Go to the African campaign and choose the Sphinx level. Deploy into
Fortify/Quickload mode when you are loaded into the level. Keep in mind that
after Vlad and Woodruff have their conversation you will need to redeploy into
Fortify/Quickload mode.

Attack the Guardian of the Sphinx as you normally would. When the smaller
worm-like tubes spawn around you, fire 1 or 2 shots at the same worm-like tube
and you should get the Trickshooter achievement.

This mission is perfect for this achievement as the worm-like tubes will form an
evenly spaced circle around you.

The best way to get this is shoot a group of noods as it will go through them and each kill is a ricochet so killing a group of 5 will unlock the place 1 level of africa
