Danger Close Achievement

  • Danger Close

     

    20

    Take down a chopper with an AC-130 smoke grenade in "Bag and Drag."

    A little way into the "Bag and Drag" mission, you'll be given the option to summon air-support by throwing a smoke grenade. From the point of first using it, head down the big set of stairs and head right up another small set. It's right here at the top of these a helicopter will fly over and start dropping in some enemy infantry.

    Right at this point, load up another air-support grenade and throw it underneath the helicopters' location. Give it a few seconds and the AC-130 will fire off a load of bullets destroying the helicopter and unlocking your achievement.

  • @2 thanx bro
  • thank you Expressbishop great video and help thank you.
  • here is MY video on this achievement http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TE5eLUlFBsI
  • Here's my video on the achievement....wait, I don't make videos about achievements...Two videos have already been posted on here and you still think we need you're video as well? ARE YOU SERIOUS BRO!?
  • I gota do this still
  • Should be really easy
  • I can't seem to get this one... When I throw the marker at the exact time done in the videos, the AC130 never acknowledges it or fires. Then the enemy Helo flies off and still nothing happens. Any ideas?
  • OK! That was weird. Rebooted xbox and loaded up again - worked this time. In any case, thanks to those who upload these vids. I'd be SOL without them. =)
  • Thanks for the videos, first one did it for me
  • This is easy and here is a nice vid! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J0D0yoEKr4E
  • Got it first time on the chopper vids #1 and #2 both show. Thanks.
  • Heres my vid with dual commentary http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zYoEkI-5KmY
  • Brasco53, thanks for that video, that helped. I was having trouble before.
  • Thanks got this first try with first video :)
  • They make the achievements in this game so simple.. I got it without the knowing of it being an unlock. I didn't even look for a video or anything just chucked a smokey and beep-bop, a simple 20G.
  • These videos need to be noob friendly. I do not even know where in the game they throw the marker thingy.
  • It won't give me this achievement. I've knocked the chopper down literally 20+ times with the AC-130 strike and still it will not give it to me. I've restarted the Xbox 3 times, and for some reason, the game won't give it to me.

  • I think we all should do achievement videos on YouTube every game every person. What wrong with that BRO? MW3 sucks cock & balls stupid arcade FPS.
  • Thanks #1. Worked like a charm. Got it on first play through on Veteran.

  • big ups to #1 & #2... got it 1st try!
  • Got it my first try on Veteran :D
  • I'm kinda annoyed at the description in the guide and the first video. Neither shows any reference to you having to clear these sets of stairs BEFORE having a chance to lob the air support smokey. The whole reason for getting the air support is to get past a street full of soldiers, so this achievement is granted by SAVING your air support till later. The words "Don't use your smokey straight away and clear the street first" should be popped into the description! Also, I know this isn't new but I've only just around to getting MW3!
