Stuck on Apache Mission

#1FlankerDFMaxPosted 10/13/2010 9:45:52 AM

I have a digital download version of the there's no manual. I'm in the gunners slot in the SP Apache mission and I can't figure out how to switch from the chain gun to the Hellfires so I can destroy the three mortar tubes. I've pressed all my controls at least three times and the voice over just keeps **** at me to "use the hellfires you n00b!" :lol: Help!!

TY on the replies. I realised it is the "press and hold 4 key" after I posted. When I was looking at the controls screen [about the 25th time :lol:] I realised there was a scroll down button on the R DUH! Lo and behold....................there was the Hellfie/4 key on the bottom of that menu. :oops:

Yeah I did the same thing too. Now I'm stuck on the mission right after that where you have to clear out a small village. You cant use hellfires. RPG's keep hitting me out of a 2 story building and I keep peppering the building with fire but it's like the shooters are invisible. How do you do it?

Apparently (from all the posts in this and other forums) there is a hellfire glitch that can affect the Apache missions. Guess I'm lucky my problem was easily fixed by me not taking any more stupid pills! :lol:

Most are saying they were able to over come the gltich you've encountered by restarting the whole mission :evil: and not reloading from a checkpoint. Sorry!
