Anyone know what constitutes as a perfect run?
I've beat this several times and not taken any damage!
Is is one missile per plane? Cuz that would be hard!

Ok, I just got this achievement, so I'd like to clear up how it works:
* You must kill all four (in easy) jets in the mission without missing *at all* - this includes restarting from the checkpoint. You have to watch the terribly long intro (I actually made a sandwich) if you screw up once.
* You must not get hit by any missiles. Bullets don't seem to mattter
* The achievement unlocks when you go down and begin the sequence where you shoot things on the ground. You have to rejoin the formation and suffer through the SAM fire (which is just cutscenes so it doesn't really matter) before it will unlock.
My successful run went like this:
* Defend against two missiles from the first plane
* Lock onto the first plane and watch him shoot flares.
* Hold the lock until his shoots hi
|Comment #10 by Aphetor|
Wednesday, October 26, 2011 @ 04:03:22 PM
* Hold the lock until his shoots his second set of flares
* Once your jet is barely past his flares, fire your missile.
* Lock onto the second jet, firing your own flares as necessary.
* After his first set of flares, wait till your jet is past them and fire.
* There was a third jet in the air that wouldn't fire its flares, and eventually the narrator said I was successful. Might have been a bug but it happened at least twice.
* Watch your buddy get blown up
* Flare against three missiles from bogey
* When he comes up on the right side, lock on. He will dodge under your field of view and will launch his flares while you can't see him, or immediately after he appears on the left. Wait until you're past the flares and fire.
|Comment #11 by Aphetor|
Wednesday, October 26, 2011 @ 04:04:52 PM
* Target the jet that approaches on your left.
* Watch him fire four sets of flares. Hold the lock.
* Wait for him to fire another set of flares. Once you're past them, fire.
YMMV, but this sequence worked for me *on easy*. The timings are totally different on other difficulties.
You don't need to do anything with the ground forces - Just the jets. Perfect shots and never getting hit are the key here. If you miss, you MUST RESTART THE MISSION, not the checkpoint.

|Comment #21 by Pb Elements|
Friday, October 28, 2011 @ 10:54:52 PM
for me the video does not work. here is how i did it.
i played on easy.
there are 6 planes instead of 7 as in some of the videos.
first plane fires 2 rockets at you. use flare.
when he is in from of u keep locking on him untill he shoots 4 flares.
second plane shoot him straight away when u lock on him.
third plane will fly towards you. do not shoot untill he is in front of you again.
he will fire 1 flare when in front of you, shoot him after u pass the flares.
forth plane shoot straight away when u have him in sight.
then ur buddy blows up. and 2 plane is behind you. block 3 rockets with ur flares.
fifith plane will fire only 1 flare when you see him in front of you.
last one will fire 2 flares when u have him in sight.
i dont not know why my pla

We really need some clarity on this. Two hours repeating this mission not getting once, 3 on easy and 4 times on hard. Can you not miss a missile shot or something?

I just took the MiGs out with guns. Don't chance a failed missile.
|Comment #24 by ISAAC1982|
Saturday, October 29, 2011 @ 09:55:49 AM
Ok, a perfect run to me would mean not a missed missile but not one post states that as a requirement of the achievement. They suggest just not getting hit by missiles which
is f*cking ridiculously easy even on Hard.
If someone answered #2 comment we would all be a lot clearer. Don't mean to bitchy but when describing how to do an achievement you need to be very clear.

If you're waiting for an enemy to shoot for you to put out your flares, actually wait until you see the missle, not for the beeping.

Saturday, October 29, 2011 @ 11:21:25 PM

#23's method works great. Don't fire any rockets, just use the cannon and drop the flares when necessary. I got the achievement first try with this method and I'm a horrible shot. Just take your time and it's guaranteed.

Sunday, October 30, 2011 @ 04:33:56 PM
Just completed this achievement a few minutes ago. Using the gun is the best bet (although kinda boring). I personally only shot down 4 enemy aircraft during the gun run (two before your wingman was shot down and two after). Regardless of where your visor is positioned, you can only really hit the other planes when they are directly (or almost) in front of you. Just keep in mind there might always be someone on your tail (so keep that left trigger finger ready). Good luck and good hunting. The achievement popped when the F/A-18 joined formation with the A-10's and other planes.

Comment #21 by Pb Elements worked perfectly, don't miss any missiles and don't get hit and the achievement should pop when you switch to the targeting pod. Keep in mind that the fourth plane can pop up immediately after the third so be ready to take two quick shots in a row.

Right, so have to do the whole mission from start to finish - including watching the intro, there are no 2 ways about this...I did it both watching the vid and not watching it, and it didnt pop up when I was not watching the vid...so do the whole mission from start to just after you go into lase mode and it should pop up :)

When using the gun I only ever get 2 (sometimes a random third) before the scene with my wingman. It's not like I am missing a whole lot either as get them after they do their attacks on me. So what am I doing wrong?

toughest achievement so far in the game, and by for the most annoying since if you screw up you have to start again from the main menu. Best advice i can give is WAIT before firing each and every time until he fired the flares and only fire when he's directly in front of you and you have past the flares.. TAKE YOUR TIME!

Twice in a row I've taken a b.s. cheapshot where a missle hit us with no warning and no one behind the aircraft. That's complete crap. I hate achievements that make you wade through unskippable crap like this. I wouldn't mind the replaying if not for that and the crap cheapshots.

Sunday, November 06, 2011 @ 11:13:41 AM
I just got this achievement by doing this on easy and following what #21 said. However on the 3rd plane when he gets in front of you he actually fires 2 flares and not 1
When defending from the flares only fire them when you see the missle leaving the enemy jet.
Hope this helps

I can confirm that by doing exactly what #21 says will work. The achievement won't pop until you start the next segment of the mission where your view goes into the targeting computer. Hopefully you guys aren't restarting the mission before that thinking you didn't get the achievement!

"Bogey dumping flares"
Immediately after you hear "bogey dumping flares" start your timer.
The following times are when you should fire your missiles..i used my ipod's stopwatch, it's a nice big font.
4. 2.33.6 (this one will approach you from your left, let him pass)
5. 2.38.24 (NB. Almost immediately after #4.)
(fend of 3 attacks from the next two bogeys)
All credit goes to Wozamil (youtube) I used his video to sync time.

|Comment #62 by BetweentheBuried|
Tuesday, November 15, 2011 @ 05:16:09 PM
So after many trail and error attempts I've come up with the solution.
Basically your goal is to take out the other planes without missing a single missile and taking damage.
1st plane: Wait until he fires off 4 sets of flares to fire a missile.
2nd plane: Fire as soon as you're able to lock on.
3rd plane: He will go behind you and fire a missile at you,then he will hen pass in front, wait until he shoots of 2 flares to fire at him.
4th plane: Fire as soon as you're able to lock on.
*Scene of your wing man getting shot down*
Evade the 3 missiles from the 2 planes behind you.
5th plane: Wait until he fires 1 flare then lock on and shoot him down.
6th and last plane: Wait until he fires off 2 flares then take him down.
*Proceed with mission until you are prompte

Wednesday, November 16, 2011 @ 06:54:11 PM
#21 is absolutely spot on. Follow that and the achievement should pop.
To set a few things straight though for anyone with any doubt:
* You cannot miss with a single missile
* You cannot get hit by an enemy missile (the cannon fire is unavoidable)
* Missiles are the easiest and quickest way to shoot down the planes if you get the timing right between enemy flares
* You cannot restart from the checkpoint if you screw up. You have to exit the level and restart the mission from the main menu
* You can skip the interrogation scene, but annoyingly have to deal with watching the dull "interactive" cut scenes
* The achievement will pop when you switch to the top-down black and white view

Friday, January 06, 2012 @ 12:43:56 AM
Guns in my opinion didn't work very well but this is how i just got it.
1st Bogey sends 2 missiles and you counter each with flares. Then he shoots 2 flares out and then after that you hit him with missile.
You then proceed to take out both the 2nd and 3rd bogeys as soon as you see them.
The 4th bogey will then drop 2 flares and dive down towards the land. Shoot him whilst he is diving and then proceed to take out the 5th bogey as soon as you see him.
(cut scene when crazy flying pilot dies after forgetting crazy flying moves seconds before)
The last two jets will then send 3 missiles (may be 4) which you then counter with flares. Then proceed to missile the 6th after two flare dumps and the 7th after 2 flare dumps. Then Achievement unlocked :)

Do this one on easy. Guns work fine, just takes longer than missiles. On easy I only fought 4 jets: 2 before your wingman gets shot down, 2 after. After he's gone, be careful because the game automatically switches you to missiles for the second pair. During the second pair you'll spend a lot of time on the first enemy. Pay attention to your radar lock warning! This is when everyone gets hit by the ”missile from nowhere.” The guns take longer but you can't screw up if you use them. The videos suck and are almost impossible to sync perfectly. Since timing is everything, I said fuck it. And don't count yourself out Before the bombing run cut scene. It pops awhile after the fight with the jets. Every other plan on here failed repeatedly for me. Guns worked the first time. And everyone else I

i did the whole thing through and i didnt think that i was going to get it so after i shot down all the planes, i just started firing missiles. yet i still got it, and im pretty sure i missed one missile as well.

Different video to #3
Sync the video playback to your game and the guy gives you verbal cue at the exact moment when you need to launch flares or or fire rockets
Its almost harder to not get this achievement when using this video!

Well this is a ballache. For those still attempting, fuck the missiles off, and just use the main cannon. takes longer, but if you keep 'dumping' flares when they fire a missile you will get it. Patience is a virtue and all that

Tuesday, February 21, 2012 @ 01:32:06 PM
Man this achievement was really easy after figuring it out.
Put the difficulty on easy because I only had to shoot down 4 enemies. 2 before and 2 after your fellow F-18 gets shot down.
Flare ONLY when you hear the frantic beeping (meaning the missile is on it's way).
Use the guns on the first 3 enemies.
It seems like the last one has to be shot down with a missile. He dumps 2 flares when you lock. You have quite a while to shoot before he flares again.
It was actually quite simple in the end.

Stupid. Stupid. Stupid. "hay guys let's make an achievement that requires watching a meaningless intro that's not worth watching once, much less a dozen times, that the majority of people will only get by synching with a YouTube video or dumb luck".
If I wasn't so OCD, I'd be able to skip this stupid waste of time and move the eff on...

Friday, March 09, 2012 @ 08:31:45 AM
Okay, just got this achievement. I used #21's comment (worked great, btw- vid synchs didn't work for me, even with a perfect sync, something went wrong each time).
Interestingly, the last plane dropped an extra set of flares and my last missile did not connect >.<
So I switched to machine guns and took him out. Achievement unlocked! I guess you only get one missile for each plane, so maybe if you happen to miss one, finish out on machine guns and you may still get this ridiculous achievement to pop.

@23 Why is nobody listening to this guy? It's possible to do it on hard with his method, albeit it may take longer, (my opinion, just do all achievements on easy after beating campaign on hard), but at least you won't have to complain about it anymore.
@46 Nice find, bro. Didn't even notice it until you pointed it out. o.o

Like it's been said countless times before, DO NOT USE MISSILES, it may take a little while longer but just know when to dump your flares, don't get hit, and take the extra time to hit em with the guns

just do what number 23 said.. i tried with missles on my first playthrough., had to blow about 6 planes.. used cannons, on Hard, and only had to down four., when they get behind you, pop flares when the indicator beeps for it., easy., and for those that dont know or pay attention., its the fast beep not the steady beep

Friday, April 20, 2012 @ 06:18:50 PM
I absolutely hate this achievement, its the fact that you have to sit through and do the annoying walk, pre flight checks and then fly around doing nothing, why you cant just re-start from the checkpoint just before you come in contact with the enemy jets is beyond me!!

Use machine guns and keep RT pressed down during the whole flight - also, keep tapping LT for countermeasures... Nothing will hit you, but eventually you'll hit them :)
|Comment #127 by monkeyboy2283|
Monday, April 30, 2012 @ 10:04:59 AM
I found this relatively easy, all you need to do is not use missiles and use the cannon to get the kills, you cannot really aim the cannon so you need time it so they are in front of your plane.
With the defending you need the subtitles on, your co-pilot will call out when you need to flairs, will say tracking then dump flairs or flairs.
When the subtitle for flairs comes on screen push LT and you will never get hit.
I was playing this in easy and it takes a bit longer then using missiles but you will not need to keep restarting it, it pops when you join the other planes on the cut seen.
Tip – After the mid-level save point it will switch you missiles back on, so you will need to press Y to get your gun back.

heres how i got it:
kill first jet with bullets
kill second with rocket (it doesent dump flares)
and last kill all the rest with bullets
Please note that this takes patience to mow down the jets with bullets but it gets you the achievement

Hated this, spent 2 hours trying to do it with missiles, took 15 minutes with machine gun. Make sure the jets are in front of you when you fire cause you can't aim the machine gun. Every "cycle" of play should go like this: he fires 3-4 rockets and you flare, he circles around you for a bit, he goes right in front of you for a few seconds, which is when you fire

Use the Vulcan Gun. It takes longer, but saves you on the frustration trust me. Oh and FYI, it only fires directly in from of the nose of the jet, so aim accordingly.

I know that many people have said use the guns if you are getting pissed off with the missiles,like i was-but after over an hour trying and failing with missiles....switched to gun method and 5-10 minutes later i got it-SO MUCH EASIER! So swallow your pride,check in the ego and USE THE GUNS!!
