Make it through the NOVA 6 gas without dying on Rebirth Island.
This is easiest to do on Recruit difficulty. During the mission "Rebirth", you will be put into the shoes of Hudson and his squad. You first take control of some APC's, and once you drive over a bridge, an attack helicopter will knock you out of the APC onto the ground. You will see gas being dispersed in the cut scene, causing you to put your gas mask on. This is when the mission begins, and you cannot be shot enough for your suit to tear/die. They give you an Einfield with an infrared scope on it. This is the weapon you need to use the most to fight through the gas.
First you want to use the prone ability as best you can and always try to be in cover (press and hold to go prone). While moving up the streets, stick to the sides. If your team starts shooting, there are bound to be enemies. A majority of the enemies spawn in front of you, so always be ready. Once you reach the clearing with your team and see the facility in site. You will take off your mask and the achievement should unlock. Here are some tips to make it through without a problem:
Play on Recruit, this will be much easier. If you die, you will need to restart the mission completely over again.
While zooming in with the infrared scope, press to steady your aim.
Use prone a lot once you hear gunfire, it will help you stay out of sight.
Once you reach the helicopters, take them out quickly.
If you are about to die, you can quickly pause the game with ; and save and quit. Resume the campaign and it will put you back at the last checkpoint to give you another chance.
Best thing to do is to do this on Recruit using only the IR. You just make sure that your squad is with you the entire time and they move up. I only died about 2 times on my Veteran run for some reason last night :)
Just stay back from your squad watch where they shoot and use the infrared gun. also if you get hit any before you make to the house where theirs a gap between them down the stairs, as your exiting the building or your guys are. their's an enemy that comes behind u and it doesn't take too many shots for you to lose your helmet. i died cause of that so be careful and be cautious.
Actually If you do it on VETERAN LEVEL .... just stay far back and let your teammates do the work of killing your foes and just be very careful.. I got this achievement on Veteran very easily and The helicopters didnt do much damage on me when i got them.
Theres a glitch on this mission if u missed any intel going through the nova gas. Just walk right up to the ledge at the end where u take off ur mask and dont go any farther. U can turn around and go back as far as u want and u wont die
In response to Comment 9, I don't think it matters if you die in any phase of the level where you ARE NOT wearing your hazmat gear. I died once during the Mason-sneaking section and still got the achievement. As the achievement guide description states, I believe that you simply cannot die from any moment that Hudson/you are wearing the mask; the achievement should pop once he takes the mask off (a little after the helicopters).
Like Someone posted earlier if you are dying.. As in your hands are coming up to your face just pause, save and quit then resume your campaign. You will start at the last check point and still get the achievement
I don't know what happened but I tried on Veteran and died so I just continued the level and then magically it popped up when I was in the part where I took my mask off.
I died a few times and restarted at the end of the nova 6 and changed my button layout from tactical to default and stood at the top before taking the guys out on the roof. Maybe I found a way around it accidentally? I feel like a cheater :(
iv just done it on hardend not tht hard still on my first run thro just keept my head low n let my team do most the work n tht vid is a great help no suddern surprices wen u jump from 1 side 2 the outher side there wos 2 people thro the door way wich i wos not expecting thy broke my suit but just saved n quit loaded up at checkpoint n job done
I got this by staying in cover for the entire time I only fired probably 30 shots through the whole time. But beware I had taken no damage through the entire time and then there's this one part where I almost got killed cuz I randomly net out of cover. Do not do what I did it most cost me 50g and the easiest way to do the strella part is to just wait at the edge of the door to the house cuz it cant get you there.
I can confirm that if you are in the death animation and save and quit before he takes off the mask you will still get the achievement. I died at the helicopters and quickly quit before the animation finished and got the achievement pop.
