Purple Heart achievement????

  1. I'm trying to get the purple heart achievement and I read a guide that said says i have to die 10 times then get a new checkpoint. I did this at the very beginning of Semper Fi then got the checkpoint by Private Ryan. Am i doing something wrong. I just want help getting this achievement. Thanks for any help

  1. To get the purple heart achievement you have to die multiple times at a certain checkpoint and just keep retrying until you get the achievement. I got it without even trying to get it, playing the game on Veteran difficulty. I was at a checkpoint where I had to clear some tunnels of Nips and kept dying b/c I couldn't see where they were shooting from (ended up being they were shooting from an opening in the ceiling of the cave). I was determined that I would get past it, so I just kept retrying/dying/retrying/dying at least 10-15 times and the achievement popped up.

    I recommend you do the same, try playing one of the more challenging levels on Veteran difficulty and you will get the achievement whether you are trying to or not lol.

  1. I got it on the Pvt. Miller mission with the flame tank...I was bored so I was running around knifing all the japanese soldiers and I would either...A: Get killed by a BANZAI! attack or B: Get blown up by the massive amount of grenades they were throwing or C: The flame tank would miss about 10 or so soldiers and they would kill me...but you have to die 10 times <b>AT</b> a checkpoint

  2. On Semper Fi (the first mission), veteran difficulty, just run up to the japanese soliders coming out of the forest after Roebuck and Sullivan save you. About after 10-30 times you die. You SHOULD get the achievement.

  6. If you need help with achievements try going to xbox360achievements.org They have achievements for pretty much every game whether it be retail or live arcade. Most games have a walkthrough guide for the achievements as well. Pretty good site if you need help getting your gamerscore up.

  7. I got the achievement whilst playing Burn 'em Out on Veteran.But I don't know how many times you have to die.As long as it's at the same checkpoint you will get it eventually.

  8. You get the achievement for dying EIGHT times just before passing a check point I got it on the sniper mission in russia without trying. But if you want it tat bad put the game on veteran and you will die so many times that you will forget about the achievement and then it will pop up when you are not expecting it to. Hope that helps and good luck.

  13. I believe you have to die 10 times @ a checkpoint, so when you get a checkpoint just cook a grenade in your hand till you blowup.(it took me 22 times of cookin' grenade)
