Rule #4

Watch your bullet drop

In order to get this, you must kill a target from a great distance, usually more than 1000m(?). Try to aim above their head, so that you get the illution the bullet drops. AT weapons can also be used to get this; the last missions is a great opportunity.

Thanks. That's the night mission isn't it? Whereabouts exactly on that mission can it be done? I'm guessing from on top of the ruons where you call in the JDAM.

at the start when you have done the jdam and you link up again you are told to cover A, use the m16 with scope (not the .50) at the farthest targets between N and NW,

hope this

Call me a dumbshit, but where/when EXACTLY does this need to be done? I regroup with the other fireteams after JDAM'ing the shit ouit of the FOB and before heading down the mountainside with Alpha, and the ONLY contact I see between North and North West is an APC. Last time I checked, 5.56 ammo can't drop an APC. So. Does it need to be done after heading down the mountainside with Alpha?

Thanks again.

I used the .50 cal on the night mission because it's the only scope you have with thermal vision at lower levels. When your told to cover A and they move down the mountainside just go all the way to your right behind the stone wall and look way out to the left and you'll see some ant sized enemies walk out beside a gun emplacement. Keep trying until you run out of ammo. It took me a few times reloading the checkpoint before I finally got it. Works a lot better if you are higher level and you have the thermal scope unlocked as well as the perk which gives you less of a bullet drop.

Finally, got this one just now using DeathMachine's method. I used tghe M39 EMR with supressor and thermal scope (without the incresed velocity perk). I saw several emplacements in that direction, and took out 2 enemies in them but not achievement popped, so I moved furfther along the wall and shot another enemy at another emplacement in that direction, and bagged the achievement.

Thanks for the help guys. :)

You can actually do this one with the M14+High Powered Scope on "The Wrong Way" or "Careful What You Wish For," but you need to know a little about ballistics and using a mil dot scope. When you reach the first defensive line in "The Wrong Way" you will be able to see PLA approaching from well over 1 klick (it's klick, as in kilometer, not 'click'), so compensate for distance and put a round through a Chinese guy. It may take a little practice, but once you get a grasp of how to use the scopes it's pretty easy to pull off. In "Careful What You Wish For" just sit back with the M107 and put the zap on any of the numerous PLA in the area. The guys manning fixed emplacements are the easiest to hit. Again, compensate for distance, something very easy to do with the thermal scope - it's pre-rang

For the record: I just did this on my 2nd account and was able to get it during Careful What You Wish For. At the beginning of the mission I picked up an M107 and ran for the mountain overlooking the bridge. I used a lvl 20 scout with the marksman training & high velocity ammo perks. I was 807 from the first fixed emplacement on the other side of the bridge, adjusted for bullet drop and nailed the gunner. Apparently you don't need to be 1 klick out, but I would't get any closer than 800m.

I would suggest not to get it with thermal, because its hard to watch the bullet drop on thermal...its just a lot harder

De4thM4chin3's method is solid. Just remember to keep running back and grabbing ammowhen you do this one. I think it was like 50 shots before I cashed in on this one. Not an easy one without the right B Mod.
