Hey "DSP" did you need 1000kg bombs for that?

Personally, I didn’t upgrade to 1000kg bombs. I used the same method that you quoted, and just using the regular, nonupgraded bombs (the 4 250kg bombs, iirc) will work just fine, but this is largely aided by the sticky dynamite on the AA gun. The sticky dynamite does most of the damage, and is set off by the bombs as they drop. Your aim doesn’t need to be perfect with the standard bombs as long as the sticky dynamite is in place (basically, no need to waste hours and hours trying to upgrade your plane).

 

Hope this helps! This trophy was such a pain, hardest one on this list by far.

No, I did it with regular bombs. If you have the sticky dynamite on, it doesn't matter what bombs you use. oh, the camera's on?

  I got it legit by myself :)

Used the JUA88 airplane from the germans with the 500kg×4 upgrade! (Not the 1000kg like most recommend).

Easiest maps: hamada (3 kills) , fjell (1 kill) , twisted steel (1 kill).

Will just give some tips that helped me get this real quickly boosting.

 

Play on Arras map. There is AA guns in each base where you partner can sit without risking beeing killed. Have him throw 2 dynamites on the AA but do not detonate them this way the starter 250kg bombs will be enough. Then wait for a bomber, fly to their base and get the kill. Partner waits about 30-45 seconds for AA to respawn and repeats. Should not take long given you can get on opposite teams and get a bomber.

 

Good luck!

If you’re boosting it with a partner, is it necessary to unfriend each other?

Nope! You can be in party and have voice com and get on different teams. You just can't be in the same squad before joining a server.

We ended up unfriending anyway and it worked straight away and got the trophy in the next game. I made a video based on your instructions on the ARRAS map to show other people how to do it. Thanks for the info.

Haven’t got the game or played the game yet but do the requirements for ‘Death from Above’ trophy need to be done in one match?

Will probaly attempt to obtain the platinum without boosting then whenever I get the game but that is a maybe because will possibly just boost the trophy if it needs to be done in one match.

It does not need to be in 1 match fortunately. But getting it legis can be tedious. It all come down to how lucky you are with people using AA guns.

me and a person got it in about a hour, the trophy itself is easy, the hard part is getting intot he right server because of the long load times to enter and then leave. you have some people who think they are still in the war who do absolutely nothing but fly the plane all day and sshoot you down immediately. on the snow mountain level whoever had the most flags would go on the turret and say im on C flag. the snow mountain has a turret at every flag. one upgrade witha more powerfull bomb helped me some but not needed. before you jump on the turret throw c4 on the front. if that level dont work try arras. most the time people dont give a fk about the planes so you just need to land on the right map and hopefully the match isnt at the end like it is 99% of the time. if the aa doesnt respawn, break your tool out and build it (i think it has to be a certain class i cant remember which one). other then that, most levels have a AA at each spawn point. the other one we had luck on was the other snowboard with alot of buildings that has the AA next to the long waterline. im drunk so i cant remember the names. we got it done in a hour or 2 (id say a hour was at least loading time). the real grind is that stupid 500k points trophy. also the guy i helped had 0 platinums, this was going to be his first so its not impossible. oh also dont have the boosting person on your friend list. we would pick the server and then say ok lets try server #345876 and id go in, he would go in. we would look to see if we could boost, if we were on opposite teams, and if there was some guy who thought he was actually the plane god shooting everyone down. if there is a plane god just leave because they dont stop. they live just to fly a video game plane

Fist of all, you need to set a bomber while creating your squad in menu.

Then in the game, you need to pick the bomber out of three planes you set in menu previously. You can do it on map view while looking for spawn place. Check the base spawn spot. If plane is available, you will see a propeller icon. Before you push the X button to spawn, change the plane on the bottom of the screen to bomber (using R1/L1 if I remember correctly).

Has anybody tried this trophy by destroying stationary MMGs or anti tank cannons? The description just says stationary weapons, not specificaly AAs, so theoreticaly it should work, shouldnt it?

You start with only the Spitfire Mk VA and Messerschmitt Bf 109 G2. If you go to the Your Company menu, pick Axis or Allies (L1/R1), select the plane to customize and then click Replace Plane, you can see your options. The original planes each unlock at a specific multiplayer rank (e.g. Ju-88 A at rank eight). You can also buy the Ju-88 C (Axis) or Mosquito FB (Allies) there for 2500 CC each.

The one significant change they made was to give you the full selection of your unlocked planes on the spawn menu instead of limiting you to the three you picked in Your Company, but that was supposed to give you more options, not fewer!

I just tested this, had more than three options and was able to get a bomber. If you think you should have more unlocked then you might've just hit a glitch where your unlocks are temporarily missing. I don't usually fly, but maybe plane types are restricted by map/mode too?

do enough people on here still play to boost this trophy?  if so i'll create a gaming session.

 

in hardline and bf4 you could join empty servers and boost trophies like these.  is there still a server browser in bf5 that allows you and a friend to hit emptyservers?  (i'd check but i uninstalled when i thought this troph was impossible due to lack of ppl actually sitting in anti aircraft guns)
