Resident Evil 6

Resident Evil 6 Achievements

Flying Ace

Pilot the VTOL without getting a scratch on it.

At the end of Chris’ Chapter 4 Campaign, you’ll be in a jet. You’ll need to finish this section of the game without the jet taking damage, which means dodging missiles and avoiding collisions. You can get this is either Chris or Piers.

As Chris: Press  when prompted to barrel roll and dodge incoming missiles. If you hold down  during the barrel roll, you can shoot down the missiles and keep them from circling around. Shoot down the helicopters as fast as you can and when Piers cleans up the guns on the ship, you’ll be done with the hardest part. 

As Piers: You only have to concentrate on shooting the anti-aircraft guns on the ship. Do this is fast as you can and the AI will do the rest. There is a little luck involved as you have to rely on the AI to dodge incoming missiles. There was a spot where I would always get hit by a missile, but many people have reported unlocking this achievement as Piers.

Finish the rest of the chapter without dying and it’ll unlock at the end. Also pay attention to the green outline in the bottom right of your screen. If you ever get hit, this flashes red and that’s your cue to immediately hit  and restart the checkpoint. Note that dying and hitting "Yes" to continue will NOT allow you to earn the achievement.

Sweet! We had the boat in RE5. I guess now we get to fly a plane? It's probably going to be a guided path and we can control it as long as it's on that path.

Flying would be really cool so this one is exciting it might be a quick time event sequence

Sounds new and fun! Only knock on this one from me is its VERY similar to BF3's achievement with the perfect run in the fighter jet, so it's not such a creative idea.

Hopefully not QTE based. Would prefer something where playing After Burner 2 could be considered practice for this achievement (not happening).

Seems like another easy 1000gs. Guessing secret achievements are boss fights?

Very, very easy. When you're locked on by a missile press RB to do a barrel roll. After that it is hard to get hit, just shoot the BOW in the face (it will stun it). In case you're wandering I am a supplier so I get the game very early. So I am playing RE6 on Friday morning, way before release.

I think 5 of the secrets are Ada Wongs campaign.

This takes place in Chapter 4 of Chris' Campaign. You'll have to pilot a plane and take down various turrets. Piers automatically locks onto these for you when you keep your plane steady. The problem with this Achievement is that you must not get hit at all, so you have to pay attention to all your surroundings. When you see an Alert pop up on your screen, make sure you perform Barrel Rolls to avoid the oncoming rockets. Sometimes there'll be more than one rocket!! So be sure to pay attention and wait for the Alert message to disappear. When it's gone you can safely lock onto another target again.

Once you pass this particular area you'll have to fight some more using your plane while Piers has to disrupt the controls for a Rocket that's about to launch. Just focus on firing the baddies

Actually ALL of the secrets are for Ada's campaign. 5 for completing the chapters, and one extra for getting through an area without being noticed.

I think you have to be Chris to get this achievement, because I chose Piers and I could only fire missiles, instead of piloting the plane.

@ #15 It's possible to get it as Piers. You're given the achievement at the end cutscene for the chapter (after you've jumped off, disarmed the rocked, then destroyed it later) if you didn't take any damage.

listen up everyone, you can get this achievement as piers. I know because i was playing coop over live and i was chris the other person was piers. At the end of the sequence she says "hey i got an achievement" i asked which one (i thought you can only get it as chris, i just got it) and she said the flying ace achievement so you CAN get it as piers

Chris, Chapter 4-4 Airspace over Aircraft Carrier

Destroy the helicopters to limit incoming missiles and be ready with RB for barrel rolls. Continue to cover Piers as he runs around the deck since you have to cue the end of chapter cut-scene so the achievement will pop.

Unlocked it with piers...
Easy as long as you shoot the closes anti air guns, first...
if you go for the ones far away, you most likely will miss, and the closest will shoot and hit the plane.
