Operation Flashpoint: Red River Achievements

Rule #2

Short, controlled bursts  

Shoot in short bursts, you''ll get this eventually; remember that many weapons have 2 fire modes. Select the Rifleman class in a Clean Sweep FTE. You need to get 4-5 kills without reloaing with the burst fire mode selected.

You need to get five kills using burst firemode without reloading.

Does this have to be done on a specific mission, and/or with a specific weapon? I ask because i've gone through several maps now with the MP5 on y-round burst and got 5-6 kills before reloading, and no achievement. I've also tried with the Mk. 48 Mod 0, fiering 4-5 rounds at eadch enemy and bagging more than 5 kills before reloading. Still no achievement.

I figure now that maybe every shot in the burst has to hit the enemy.

you don't actualy have to use a 3 round burst weapon on a enemy.
at least from what I have experienced is that you just have to put 5 enemies in
the ground without reloading. The way i got it is by just shooting a .50 cal
machine gun, during the 5th level, and just kill 5 pla soldiers.

Well my game is obviously glitched then. Just dropped 10 enemies one fifth mission while on the .50 cal MG. No achievement. Did it again, no achievement. Tried it with LMG's and AR's too (going full auto, short bursts) many times, and guess what, no achievement.

It just appeared for me. Didn't do anything special for it.

do you have to do this on any certain class? i had 16 kills with the M39 DMR without reloading and it didn't come up.

Not sure. But I believe it has to be an SMG, LMG or an assault rifle (on auto, firing in short bursts). That said, it doesn't seem to unlock when getting 10 or more kills without reloading on a .50 cal HMG on Line in the Sand.

The best way to do this is on the first mission. SPOILER ALERT* when the Humvee gets blown by the IED go hide in the buildings to the left. use high ground to help. use burst rounds from the 'M16A4 RDS' and make sure you hit 5 Afghans in a row with the 3 bullet fire mode enabeled

I got this when manning a mounted machine gun, and my bursts were neither short nor controlled. Kind of galling as I had spent the entire game upto that point in single shot and burst fire mode
