Max Payne 3

Max Payne 3 Achievements

Welcome Ashore

Kill a player on the yacht from the observation platform of the Panama Canal  

This must be done in a Gang Wars mode and is suggested that you have a full 8-player boosting lobby and a Sniper Rifle loadout. Be aware that the observation platform is not the 2-story building immediately to the left of the yacht. You can find the observation deck to the south-west of the yacht, past some metal catwalks. It is the single-story, white building with large glass windows.

Have your partner(s) on the enemy team stand on the front of the yacht while you position yourself inside the observation platform. Melee the windows and follow up with a direct headshot from your Sniper Rifle. The achievement will pop as soon as you kill one of the enemy players on the yacht.

For those trying to figure where the Observation Deck is: Can be done in Gang Wars map on Panama Canal (this will expose the entire map unlike the Deathmatch variants). On the opposite side of the map from the yacht, there is a small two-story building (reminds me of a guard post) which is the observation deck. Grab a sniper and have another player stand on top of the jacuzzi cover on the yacht. You should be able to snipe them and get the achievement.

You can also get this if you play Large Deathmatch in soft lock or free aim -- Did it last night with a buddy -- We were the only 2 in the level (free aim Large Deathmatch) -- The only issue we ran into was having to exit in and out of the lobby 4 times before the Panama map was available.

@3 there are PLENTY of people to get this legit. How did you come up with that? Is it really that hard for you to get a long range kill? sure there are some hard ones to get legit but this is not one of them

This is a one in a million shot, best to be boosted. I've done my time proving myself on hard achievements, but this is for the person that only owns this game and has endless time on their hands. It is tricky, but as stated above follow his directions (Kohbo); find the building across the map (it is not the building you zip-line across in the main game). I did this in free aim, team death match on Panama. Good luck.

If you still need this achievement this may help, i got this by pure accident, i was in the tower and happened to have my "weapons double dealer" at level 3, i looked on the map, saw another player on the boat, set off the burst, the grenade killed him and the Welcome Ashore achievement popped up
