    Take down the jet in one attempt in Rock And A Hard Place

    At the end of the mission "Rock and a Hard Place", you will enter a conflict on the ground with a fighter jet. After safely moving up with your squad in cover and recovering the javelin, take aim and shoot it down with one shot.

    This has to be done in one go from when the jet appears while your squad is regrouped. If you get killed after the jet repairs, reloading the checkpoint will negate this achievement.

  • I used the stinger to take out the plane in with one rocket but it didnt unlock the achievement?
  • I have got the same thing Doesn't know what the problem is
  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NQ1CBbqNtrc here is a solution
  • not a solution man. ive done that about 3 times now
  • didn't pop form either :-(
  • You can't die from the jet. You have to blow it up with one rocket, without dying while it's firing at you. Just follow your squad, when you can grab the Stinger grab it than shoot it.
  • I have the same issue. Done this multiple times, it locks on, and then it smokes and blows up later, not like in the video. I guess you have to shoot it before it turns?
  • so what if you die earlier in the level?
  • Always one stupid Achivy that never really explains how to do it then it never works for anyone. Great QA...
  • @#8 It doesnt matter if you die earlier in the mission just do not die by the jet
  • I had the same problem until I read the description again, it says "Take down the jet in one attempt", it does not say with one shot of the stinger.
  • Something is wrong with this achievement... I did the mission from start to finish, not a single death, I also got to the Stinger perfectly, I then shoot the jet down in one missile... NOTHING!!!
  • Dont Die. Dont shoot at the jet. Follow your leader and hide behind him everywhere he goes. Pick up the stinger, and shoot it when its flying from the 6 oclock position your were originally running from. But dont be suprised, this is the biggest glitch game i have ever played in my life.
  • You have to hit it on the first fly by to trigger.
  • A made a video On how to get this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mvuKa5vVpWg
  • wow all that for no achievement... another reason this game is a piece of sh*t
  • this game is bullshit
  • I've done this 5 times now mirroring exactly what's in the video above and still nothing!
  • I've come across some extra info courtesy of GFaqs. Apparently if you die or reload a checkpoint at any time during the entire mission it won't unlock. That may be what happened since I reloaded the first checkpoint at the beginning a couple times to get the achievement for collecting a Russian dog tag during the ambush.
  • I died and reloaded a bunch of times thoughout this level. On hard, all I did was follow Cole till the objective cursor had me go look at the car for the stinger. Picked it up as the jet was coming back around, locked on almost immediately after picking it up. easy...
  • Did it 3 times didn't unlock for me either. The whole level was glitchy though, I died the first time on the jet part for no reason about 3 times. No reason being that I was about to move forward with my squad and just died. After I beat the game I went back for the achievements and tried it another 2 times from start to finish without dying and nothing.
  • I FOUND THE WAY!!!! Same thing way happening to me doing it over and over again, no achievement. Look I know this sounds stupid but it worked for me. I ran through with out dying like the say to do, but this time when you start running from the jet stay right next to "Cole" hide where he hides every cover spot, don't die. Soon as you get the stinger then look toward the way you came lock on quick and fire as soon as your locked. The jet came toward me blew up and... POP!!!! ACHIEVEMENT! Hope this works for you all and helps out a little.
  • Thanks a lot!!! It worked for me)
  • Do exactly what #22 and #13 said and the achievement will pop up!!! Thx alot, worked perfectly :)
  • Hope this works.
  • I tried this achievment 3 tims in a row and it ddnt work so wat i did was 1st: not die and 2nd: follow cole. wen u get 2 the part wher you get th stingr dnt get it right away. stay on the other side of the car (wher the shadow is) and wen the jet passes get the stinger and shoot it. Hope dis helps :)
  • this is a funny one because the title is missleading... and it has nothing to do with shooting the plane in 1 attempt, but everything to do with what happens before it... i mean the jet always gets blown up by the first missile, but unless you carry out the mission in a certain way, or shoot it in a certain direction it won't appear???!!!
  • You fags are retarded for saying the game is shit, there ARE glitces, it's been out for 6 days, hello, title updates dumb shits, ever heard of them. And get on my level fucktards.
  • @ #28 Congrats. That was the single dumbest post I have ever seen. You win.
  • I had the same problem!!!
  • Done this on Hard and went very slow as not to die and got Jet with one shot but achievement did not pop. 3rd achievement that has not unlocked for me.
  • Just like @27 Said. Just dont die on your way to the jet. And it Will pop.
  • Cant get hit at all, need to do the level without dying. :)
  • I have now done this 5 times! Never died once and never got hit by the jet. Why is this working for some people and not others? I've even tried it on Easy and Normal.
  • To unlock this achievement you have to get to the jet, you can die 1000+ times before this, but you CANNOT be killed by the jet, if you are then you don't unlock the achievement, someone has already explained this and it was bugging me that no one else has even bothered to take his advice, and @Weve33, you must have died at the jet if the cheevment didn't pop.
  • @#35 I have honestly not died or even been hit by the jet. I even followed Cole just to make sure. I've just tried it again since writing my original post and still no luck.. :-(
  • just thought i would chime in here. I just got this cheevo while playing through on hard. Note: 1. You can die as many times as needed getting up to the jet, i know i did a couple times by the apc. 2. I was not killed by the jet at all. 3. I only shot one rocket at it after getting the SAM. I waited for lock on, then waited another 20 seconds for it to turn and be coming at me, took shot, done. 4. It flies past and loops back and then explodes in the air near the bridge, and THEN the achievement popped up. Hope that helps clear things up for a few people. Goodluck
  • @37 so the position of the jet matters? because i didnt die the whole lvl and that shit blew up in the distance and i didn't get it =(
  • Yea i tried doing what someone posted above ^^ yet it still didn't work. I guess I just need to go back and try it again.
  • I got this yesterday after 6 fails and the only noticeable difference was the objective updating in the top right corner, instead of staying with cole i moved up to the last car (the one with the stinger) so i was alresdy at the car when he told me to get to it, i waited for the plane to make another run, moved around the car, picked up the stinger, locked on, fired, ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED
  • @#29 oh, and why was it the dumbest, when the whole thing was factual. You clearly don't know shit about games, once again, get on my level....especially in BF3.
  • I tried a couple of times without dying and shot it at different times. I got it by following #15's video exactly. I moved to the same cover and fired at the same time and when it blew up, I got it.
  • #35, What are you on about. Completed it without dying (on Hard might I add) wither up to the Jet or during the Jet and the achievement didn't pop. Going to follow some of the other comments.
  • So got a lock on and waited and then fired the rocket as it as it was approaching rather then flying away and as #37 said and turned and then blew up over the bridge (the time I did it blew up in the distance) and the achievement unlocked.
  • @28/41 I've seen you're BF3 stats, and your "level" is crap. You're nothing but a P.O.S. B.O.A. So if you can't be helpful in these discussions, take your mouth elsewhere.
  • This one is fairly simple. You can die anywhere in the mission prior to encountering with the jet ( I know I did and I just got the achievement ) Follow Cole the whole time until he tells you to find the rocket then just shoot him (towards the jeep it's under aka your "6" as someone mentioned on here or if you don't understand, shoot it towards your buddies , the jet marking is over their heads) Achievement pops after you shoot one (locked on shot that is) and the jet blows up next to you after doubling back.
  • @Isaac1982 I shot it after locking on. I don't think it matters when you shoot it as long as it's locked on and you didn't die from the jet
  • got it first time! i didn't die at all in the mission and kept in cover when the jet flies over head. once u lock on just fire and u shut get it! thats how i got mine.
  • I finally got this achievement the other night. It looks like that the position of the Jet was the key for me. I waited for the jet to pass me and as he was about to turn i then fired the stinger. The jet blew up as he was about to come past me and the achievement unlocked. Just clarifying some points: It can be done on easy I died a few times while getting to the last save point before the jet arrives. I followed Cole on every step. Just keep trying people.
  • this achievment ist bullshit every way i try it its not working but some people from my friendlist still got this damn achievment
  • I followed exactly what #15 posted in the video and got it on the first try! Thank you so much Davemaster990!
  • This is the dumbest achievement ever. The description should be "Follow Cole perfectly, and shoot down the jet with 1 rocket."
  • ahhh yeah.. first try on hard and got it :)
  • I just shot the stinger at the plane when I was told to, as soon as it crashed the achievment popped. Ididnt die during the series though so maybe it like the chase achievement where you just have to do it without dying.
  • I died and reloaded checkpoints during the level and still got this. I think you just have to survive from the checkpoint where the jet attacks. I just followed Cole from cover to cover, ran to the jeep, picked up the stinger and shot the plane down ASAP. Achievement popped no problem.
  • very good vid with commentary http://www.youtube.com/user/TheXboxNetworx?feature=mhee
  • been doing all diff. ways u all said and nothing :'(
  • I wish they were more descriptive with the cheev's in the sense that you really do need to stay alive the whole time pretty well, not to mention all the secret acheivments... were not secrets ?
  • Just got this. It is important to wait until after they talk about the stinger being in the wreckage of the growler BEFORE you make a run for it. You have to turn around in order to pick up the stinger and the je should be coming straight towards you
  • Wow, i got it after i watched the opening interrogation scene...
  • I did it exactly how #59 said to and it still didn't work. Can you not die on the entire level?
  • This game is a gitch, took me 3 times. Last one i just followed Cole and take the plain down like in the movie
  • got this in one try on hard. as others have said, stay with Cole and don't get shot or killed by the jet when running cover to cover. the very moment he tells you to grab the stinger in the growler, run for it, pick up the stinger and lock on the jet. all it takes is one shot. the achievement should unlock when the jet crashes.
  • Ugh, I really wish reloading the checkpoint after you die from it didn't negate the achievement. Starting these entire missions over, which are not short I might add, starts to become a pain.
  • Use the USB trick, save the game on a memory stick as close to the instance as possible, then after you fail load the save, but after loading switch storage devices back to the HDD so it doesn't save over your memory stick. I used that on the chase in under 2:30 achievement and it was very helpful.
  • Did it on my first attempt! Nice change of pace for these dumba$$ achievements.
  • Finally got it to pop for me. I did it before but reloaded a checkpoint. Played through on Easy and got it by not dying and following Cole and then going to get the missile when told.
  • i really don't understand why everyone's having problems with this one. i found it relatively easy once i knew you can't be shot or killed by the jet. so, if you know that you can die all you want up until the jet portion of the level, anyone that's following the game's dialogue should be able to get this no problem. if you're having troubles maybe you should go play barbie's malibu adventure instead cause.
  • Mine glitched as well :(
  • OK - This one was an arse hole. Did it on about my 8th Attempt. The clues are in all the advice here but to summarise - this is what I did: 1. Get to the bit Just before the fast air coming in. Do it on easy - do not die all level. Just after you kill the last group of men on the road on the right by the white car your guys all regroup for a chat when the fast air comes in. Save and Quit before they regroup. 2. Go back to dashboard and copy save game to a USB as shown above so you can restart it without having to do the whole level again. 3. Load the game up and continue resume campaign. 4 Have a look at this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wWOAUI2z3oA&feature=player_embedded#! I think it's all about the timing. When you run for the growler - run just as the guy does
  • continued... 4. Have a look at this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wWOAUI2z3oA I think it's all about the timing. Do EXACTLY what the guy does in this video. -When you run for the growler - run out after your team member -Do not take cover where your teamm member does - take cover just behind the growler -Wait for jet to pass over before running around and shooting it down. if you fail - return to dashboard and reload save from USB to HDD. Worked for me - and i had to reload from USB once before doing it. FUCKER of an acheivement.
  • just DONT die in the mission or restart a checkpoint, from the start where the dude is sleeping till the plane you have to play without dying
  • such a horseshit achievement. Took it down without dying once in the level on the one single shot and nothing.
  • ok so im starting to get very should have this 1 and about 2more but the f**kin game is bein a c**t. the boys who make the game need to look in to this and do it NOW
  • This campaign sucks and the glitches make it worse. We get it EA, you wanted to compete with MW3 and get the xmas market, but you realllly should have released a finished game.
  • You are an idoit
  • I have tried this many time. I have not died but the achievement wont unlock any idea's
  • Hmmm, anyone know if this is going to get fixed, I done the whole level without dying once, shot down the jet with one stinger shot and no achievement has popped.....
  • @#79 If you do what I said above m8 and save the game to a USB Stick. You can then try over and over until the cheevo pops up. I can confirm that this definately works as I had to reload because I fired like a spastic on the first attempt :)
  • i had the same problem with the achievement not popping up on easy, if it doesnt try replaying the mission on normal, it worked for me
  • This is the fucking glitchiest game i have ever fucking played. It completely takes the fun out of it.
  • Piece of cake, just dont die. Here is a good vid that shows how to do it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mrF9OliRp-A
  • AMAZING GAME!!just can't get the achievement :(
  • Tried most of the above... eventually from 3rd hidingplace with Cole, just ran like hell, grabbed Stinger and fired while plane was flying over and away from me in the direction it flew when the group first saw it (south). Stinger fired, missile followed the plane for a bit but just when I was about to curse for having to do it all over AGAIN because the missile clearly wasn't going to make the target go kablewy, the plane kablewyed anyway and POP...25G unlocked :D
  • YOU CAN DIE AND RELOAD FROM CHECKPONIT, THAT IS WHAT I HAVE JUST DONE. (NOT ON THE JET SECTION) FLOW COLE LIKE A SHADOW. GOOD LUCK.
  • Hey I think i figured it out just watch the plane the entire time after you've shot it. I think you have to witness it blow up. I noticed in every video I've seen they watch the plane and when it explodes the achievement pops. When I saw it explode I got the achievement.
  • ive done it twice but didnt get the achievement! anyone had the same issue?
  • Follow the achievement hunter guide on youtube to the dot, just type in Butterfly Achievement and it should be the first video. Easy.
  • Just want to say i tried this multiple time thought it might be an issue or glitch. but heres the simple guide to getting the achivo like i just did tonight. start the whole level from the begining. (i got it on easy) dont die throught the whole point. follow cole the whole way. at the jet scene, follow cole, and take cover where he does. when up to the stinger, wait till all the dialog is done and Campo and Motik (whatever his name is) are taking cover behind the bust APC. as the jet flies over, in my case he flew passed me heading south of the bridge (where i went straight north to pick up the stinger) after picking it up imidiately lock on and fire. in my case the jet was just finishing his turn and started to fire at me as i shot my stinger. took cover after i fired it and watched as h
  • i don't understand how a game franchise that was built on "freedom in the battlefield" could have such a limited, boxed in campaign. you have to do everything EXACTLY AS SCRIPTED for the WHOLE GAME. no alternate paths, no options, no changes. whatever. Battlefield will never be able to "kill" CoD because they are just turning themselves into a CoD clone. the multiplayer in this game is CoD. i can see almost no difference. i'm trading in my copy and getting Bad Company 2 again. at least that game was unique.
  • I've done this multiple times now, exactly as described, and it has yet to pop for me. I can't wait to be done with this forgettable plot to this boring campaign, with its super glitchy achievements. I really don't want to play this boring level over again, but I guess I have to.
  • got this on the first try on easy just dont die and follow cole when he tells you to get the stinger do so and fire. If you missed or think you missed your shot just wait cause the missile is heat guided it will follow and will kill dont shoot twice.
  • I maybe have solution here, first time i didnt get this achievement, didnt die etc, but i noticed this, first time jet crashed that way where your squad is going, but next time i shotd it down and crashed that way where you are coming from. I dont know does this have nothing to do with this or is it glitch idk but i got it
  • Finally got this acheco U CANNOT DIE or U will nt get the acheco
  • This cevo is bullshyt. The whole time throught out the mission the games was glicthin like a mother. So every time it glitched i got a bullet to the chest. On the bridge part or even at the part when the plane shows up i didnt die . I got the stinger and blew up the jet but i got shyt for it . All the cevos in this game r bullshyt. And ive noticed theres no level cevos theres just stupid tasks u have to do. Wtf shoot 4 lights with 4 bullets u have to do it no matter wat if u miss the first shoots u shouldnt be play this game. All in all i say this game sucks im wit the guy who said bf 2 was a better game. This game was not worth wat they make u pay fpr it and im not gunna start on the payin for online and coop online . Mad retarded
  • Screw this game! If the designers were smart, they would fix this problem. I died for no aparent reason, there wasnt even an explosion. Then, what do you know, no achievement. Why are there always glitched achievements in the best-selling games?
  • @91 Thanks, got it first try. I hit the plane as it was coming back doing a barrel roll to the bridge.
  • joining the it didnt unlock group. I could have sworn i heard my notification go off right after i shot it down and the achievement thing popped up. But when i go to look at my achievements for this game, its not unlocked. ught
  • theres no stinger at the growler waypoint but nothing to pick up
  • I played and beat this game when it first came out. I played it today and now there is no stinger missle. Some update has glitched this level and made it unbeatable
  • You have to delete the update 5, go back through and it'll be there. Download the update again after
  • @101 When I delete update 5 will not delete my progress in multiplayer? I mean Dog Stamps, kills, tasks, etc. ..?
  • @101 Can you please tell me how to delete the update 5 ? I am also facing the 'missing stinger' issue :(
  • Good job Dice, way to make a game terrible. I just started replaying the campaign over again and this glitch is happening? Way to make a patch that broke even more shit. I'm glad they are hurrying their asses up and fixing this. Whole campaign has been glitchy so far.
  • I have did this mission twice and failed to get the achievement. Once on Hard and then again on Easy. I shot one time each time..NOTHING.. idk..
  • thanks for the helpful video number 82 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mrF9OliRp-A indeed you just need to be at the last vehicle before the crowler when the guys say go,go, go run and look at vehicle then pick up stinger, when you pick up stinger jet should be coming back from where you where heading, grab stinger and hide on opposite side of crowler, wait for jet to pass, then lock on wait for jet to start turning right for next run back at you from where you guys are. lock and fire as he starts turning right for next run, jet will explode as it passes bridge, if jet doesn't blow up and passes you back opposite your men you didn't get it. the key here is to be up front at vehicle before crowler before your told to go,go,go. that way you have time to grab missle go around to
  • As this cheevo is glitchy, can you get to this point then save and just do it when ever you wont or will it mess up?
  • I did the whole mission without dying, got to the end and followed all of the directions. I waited for them to tell me to pick up the stinger and I then waited for them to tell me to fire. I fired and took down the jet in one missile, but guess what? No achievement for me. FUCK YOU DICE AND YOUR GLITCHY SHIT YOU CALL A GAME.
  • completely forgot about this but when I was going through the campaign on hard I got it by pure luck! So chuffed
  • Idk why everyone was complaining... one of the easiestachievements in the game once I learned I could use the stinger...
  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-jcS6H9-D7o I followed this guide and got it first time
  • succeeded in just the fifth time. Do not die. best to go on a low difficulty.
  • I tried this achevo 4 times... U have 2 wait 4 the stinger 2 lock onto the jet before pressing the trigger.. If u press the trigger before the stinger is locked on to the jet, it will count as a miss..even though nothin shoots.. After I figured this out I did it for my bro in 1 try!!
  • Seems a few people are having problems with a few achievements on this game, not had a problem myself and all have popped on my 1st try, lucky I guess.
