Connecting Flights Achievement Tip
This is a pain for most people, so i thought i'd give folks a tip.

Make sure it's Realism Versus, this is how it's supposed to be done and the achievement should say this but it doesn't. And you will not get it unless it's in this mode, talking from experience here.

Anyway simply play with a friend and each time the level starts get killed (make sure you leave the safe room though), they do the same on their turn. The game will then load up the next level of Dead Air after you have both been killed, repeat the process until you reach the final level. Simply survive this and get on the plane, and you will both get the achievement.

Also on the final level, when one of you is the infected on 2 occasions you will get the chance to use the Tank, simply stand in front of the survivors and get it killed. Otherwise the AI will take over and control it.

You have done what it said, from start to finish. Although it's a fast paced way of doing it :)

why is this thing not working Oct 12, 2013 @ 6:02pm 
I got it on regular versus, you just have to start the lobby.
Or at least be in from the lobby, you can't join the game while it is in progress, even if it is during like the first 2 seconds of the match.

I was with a friend, we did everything right no achievement. Soon as i tried vs realism it worked.

Just did it a couple of hours ago, just a friend and me on Realism Versus.
We agreed to let me start as survivor and to win every chapter. Things went bad at the finale due to my bot teammates leaving me to get killed by a bunch of specials so I thought it was over. Because I thought you also had to make it to the end!

Well, next up was my friend and we decimated his team right at the beginning of the finale chapter, and lo an behold; we both got the achievement!

EDIT: Little note, it's actually Connecting Fights*. Not "flights". Might help when you're using search functions across the net. Then again, most people seem to be unaware that it's "Fights" so maybe it doesn't matter!

gratz mate. I only have 7 achievements left for this game, realism expert and good time nick seem like they could be a pain in the butt.

I was quite discouraged when I played Dead Air from start the finish on versus mode (lobby to lobby) three times without getting the achievement, and winning two games.

We did a few games, just said friend and I, and it was actually kind of fun to play a rigged game. Punching around other specials when you're the tank to make sure your survivor friend gets through, for example.

Good Guy Nick isn't a hard one to get, just wait for a free weekend and jump into a Dead Center run on Easy. However if you're also doing it to actually help and teach newbies, be prepared to be disappointed! Most people apparently can't learn or don't want to learn. Or don't speak English.

What i found was interesting about the connecting fights achievement was that neither of you had to survive the early chapters, you both deliberatly die and it goes to the next section.

Yeah from all the things I've read from other players, it still seems to be completely random. Realism or not, winning or losing, surviving and making it to the saferoom/plane every time or not...

Every time I thought I'd pinned down the reason for (not) getting the achievement, someone else came along and said they did get it despite whatever I thought was keeping me from it.

For the record, I made it to every saferoom, the bots did only half the time. And like I said before, I didn't get into the plane, we went down a little while after the first tank spawned and was killed.

All that should be irrelevant, though. Because my friend got the achievement at the same time, and he'd lost every chapter. (on purpose)

Thank you! Wondering why it wasn't working.

It doesn't always work even if your a Survivor and fail the finale. I was killed on the runway and my teammates were incapped, so we lost the map and the mission but they both got the achievement and I didn't.
