Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Achievements

Restricted Airspace

EMP 10 enemy aircraft out of the sky with the hovertank in "Bio Lab."  

This is unlocked in Mission 10, ‘Bio Lab.’

At the end of this mission, you will take control of a hover tank. To get this achievement, you will need to destroy ten enemy aircraft with the EMP. There are a couple more than ten, so you can miss one and still get the achievement.

The hover tank has three fire modes:  for missiles,  for cannons and  for EMP. Press  after selecting one to fire. Use your missiles to destroy the tanks and trucks and the cannons to kill the foot soldiers. As you progress, you will hear an aircraft approaching, so switch to your EMP. Luckily, your teammate calls these out to you, so be sure and listen to what they are saying. It takes one hit to destroy a helicopter and up to three to destroy a warbird. Make sure you are quick to fire, because if you miss one or two, you have to restart the checkpoint.

Keep a mental note of how many aircraft you’ve destroyed. There is a checkpoint when you reach approximately 240m from the LZ. At that point, you should have five or six aircraft destroyed. If you don’t, restart the checkpoint before you get to that location or else you will have to play the entire mission over.

PS4Trophies has provided a video showing where the aircraft are. The checkpoint is at around 2:50.

Has anyone else had this one glitch on them? It says "Done. Unlocking Achievement!" in the app but it never unlocks.

Any solutions?

To get this Achievement, in mission 12 you must throwan enemy over the gun wale with hand-to-hand combat. More or lessin the middle of the level you'll have the perfect chance. You can see how to do in in the video.

sorry, the description is this.

At the end of mission 10 you'll ride a tank. You'll have to knock down10 flying vehicles with the PEM cannon. The vehicles are all together,so If you miss anyone just load chekpoint and try again.

At #3, this happens to me all the time, usually with Kinect on...for some reason. It's happened to me on multiple games. Usually then unlocks the next day sometime I'm playing, not even playing the same game. So far everyone has unlocked eventually, but yeah, it will say 100% completed, achievement done and unlocking...don't fret, you'll get it eventually. And even if it doesn't pop, it will update your score and time stamp it from the time you earned it.

At #6, thanks. Yeah, it just popped randomly while I was on the dashboard. It's annoying but at least I got it.

Man still no guide up for this game?

All campaign achievements in one video. Specific achievements are time stamped in the description.

Very simple to get this one. As soon as you leave the holographic canopy you will need to keep an eye on the sky. use B to select the EMP and aim just in font of the aircraft to bring them down. Put it difficulty on easy to make it less of a pain to get. All aircraft locations are in the video below

Towards the end of the mission, right before you get into the hover tank, save and quit. That will put you back at the main menu. Then resume your campaign and EMP the aircraft out of the sky. If you get to the part where he says "get ready to bail out" and the achievement didn't pop yet, press the lit up xbox button on your controller and quit the game from the home screen. Then go back into the game and resume your campaign. It will pick up where you saved at the hover craft.
