Red Barrels

Explode all the red barrels on the rooftop while in a helicopter  

Act 5 Chapter 3

This will be at the very end of the act and you will be in a helicopter on a gun. There are red barrels spread around the rooftops and you will need to shoot all of them. It's best to just play this on the easiest difficulty in chapter select, focusing mostly on the barrels as much as you can. Trying on the harder difficulties may cause a lot of frustration.

Never mind, I just managed to get this. I thought it was just the red barrels you had to shoot but apparently the orange/black barrels count too, make sure to shoot EVERY barrel, not just the red ones. Plus if you don't make it you can just keep restarting the checkpoint, and you'll begin that section again.

Good luck.

Sorry about my last comment, I didn't realise at the time that the Orange/Black barrels were actually just the red barrels glowing. My bad. That's why I was confused while trying to get this achievement, It took me a while to figure out that they were also red barrels.

Haha, good luck my friend.
You've probably already figured out the fact you should try and complete this on the easiest difficulty. xD
This may or may not help you;

It's 5-3, when you are fighting Hekaton or something else. A tip- When u start flying on a helicopter destroy all red barrels in your sights. Also there is one more barrel. when trishka says that vultures are coming quikly turn left and destroy ONE red barrel. Loads of people were missing this one...

There may be an issue with blowing up the barrels on the roof before you ge into the chopter because I'm pretty sure I got em all off the rooftop... but i know i blew them up before I got in. Can anyone confirm or deny that?

I've done this about 10 times and it will not pop. I don't understand it but I'm pissed off. I'm tired of playing this over and over and hitting every barrel perfectly with no achievement.

@#16 it breaks the achievement if you do that.

The one I was missing was after flying through the window, there are two before the walkway. The one right at the entrance to the walkway, but there is one before that, to the left hidden a bit by a planter, I think. Saw that and got this no problem.

There is one Red Barrel on the Helicopter Platform right after you start if anybody missed that one... :P

3rd time is the charm :)

-Shoot all red and black/orange barrels.
-You should have it by the time the general requests cover. If you don't have it by then reload checkpoint.
- You pass some spots twice so if you miss something remember it.
-Don't Press LT when the game tells you to because you can pass barrels that way without realising.
