1. Start a new game in Salvo mode
2. Select 5 squares (I suggest a row 0 x 0 x 0 x 0 x 0 but do however you want) and make a note of their positions and then fire. If any hit mark it off and then push the Windows button (as long as you push the button before the enemy fires you will be fine).
3. Now go into Xbox Live and select Battleship, once loaded go back into Salvo mode and continue. You will have a blank board but all the ships will still be in the same place.
4. Repeat step 2. After doing this 9-10 times you should have a good idea where all the ships are.
5. Once your confident on their position restart for the final attempt and place your 5 shots. Achievement should pop straight away. If it doesn't it means you've hit one of the ships twice so hit Windows button again and continue searching.
6. Finish game but also aim to sink all enemy ships without losing any of yours. This is a requirement to unlock one of the weapons in Superweapons mode which is also an Achievement (Gun Captain - unlock all super weapons). There are several other Superweapons which you can unlock while using this method so have a look at them beforehand.

You could also use this method to unlock other achievements.
