Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine

Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine Achievements

Down to Earth

Kill 50 Assault Marines/Raptors in mid-air.   

When Assault Marines and Raptors press and hold the button, you will see them rocket into the air. At this point, just put as many bullets into them as you can while they're flying. Bolters, Storm Bolters/Twin Bolters, and the Heavy Bolter are your best options here for their rate of fire.

You'll know when you kill the Assault Marine/Raptor in the air, because you will be rewarded with the "Death from below" award.

Hope this one isnt in multi-player only, but im guessing it is. Trying to get this will suck, i think.

If you can track a target well enough the lascannon works wonders for this.

Use the vengeance launcher when you unlock, once you stick them and they fly away, detonate the nade and it should kill them or you can do this in a private match.

You can do this in a private match. With two or three people jumping for you it unlocks pretty quick.

Yes, I agree with #5 Umboito, do this on private match. The more people jumping, the faster you will unlock it.

i found you can just use the vengence perk for the assult marines/ raptors and just charge in to close combat. its a bit of a cheap way but its good if you're no good with a heavy bolter
