Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Achievements

Flying Ace

Shoot down 10 enemies with machine guns in "Throttle."   

This is unlocked in Mission 13, ‘Throttle.’

Right at the beginning of this mission, you will be piloting a jet. As you fly through the canyon, all you have to do is aim at the enemies and shoot with the machine guns by continuously holding . They are highlighted with a red hexagon. Press  frequently to activate your air brakes to slow down, but do not press  to use your afterburners or  to use your missiles at all. If you reach the end without shooting down 10 enemies, you can restart the checkpoint or mission.

Advanced Warfare PLAYLIST:
The game will auto-aim pretty generously for you which makes this a lot easier. You can ignore ground targets since they don't count for this achievement/trophy. Hold down L2 and keep the red targets centered and you shouldn't have much trouble getting this one.

If you crash you will have to restart the mission.

You'll get this achievement in chapter 13. You'll start in a plane. You must kill 10 targets with the submachine gun. Don't use the rockets because the enemies are really close to each other. If you finish and you don't get it, just reaload the chapter and try again.

I just can not get this one. Done about 50 tries on Veteran and Recruit combined. I feel like I'm getting 10 of them but no achievement!

I got this 2day. I just tried to keep the planes as close to my site as I could. Shot down more than 10!

Man still no guide up for this game?

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

Very simple. Only use LT (Machine Gun) and take down 10 FLYING enemies. I tried taking out the ground units but doesn't seem to work. Play on easy, Use B (Air brake) to maximise the time in the air and Reload if you don't get it first time.
