Battlefield 2: Modern Combat Hints for Xbox 360
Mission #7 (Air Traffic Control)
At the very start of the mission, there will be a helicopter flying directly overhead of you on your far right. If you turn fast enough, you can shoot the pilot and get the helicopter for yourself, which will make the mission MUCH easier. Don't worry if you miss the pilot at first, or the helicopter goes down and blows up, because you can quickly restart the mission.
