SHORT VERSION - buy DLC 2. Farm all the good weapons on 2-16. Blaze through the lower difficulties with the Wing Diver/Air Raider split-screen combo. Get your health up to a respectable level. Beat all the levels on Inferno.

LONG VERSION - As the TA ratios show, this achievement is the least rare of the four Inferno achievements. That's because the Air Raider is the best support character in the game and if you want this achievement as quickly as possible, you'll do well to split-screen the offline mode with two seperate characters. I'll explain why.

If you split-screen offline, the difficulty doesn't increase like it does online. For this achievement I led with the Wing Diver on controller 1 and had the Air Raider on controller 2.

The level completions count for both characters. The achievement will only pop for whatever class is on controller 1 but you can then do a level (I picked 27 High Speed as it's just 5 or 6 red drones) with the other class to pop the achievement.

To do this, you can't really short cut it. You'll see people with a couple of hundred health hosting Inferno rooms online. They are idiots. You need the armour that comes with time. You have to pay the iron price with EDF. Get your other difficulties done first. You'll want a fair bit of armour. I had around 5k with the Air Raider and 8k with the Wing Diver when I popped this.

You also want and NEED all the best toys. To get them quicker I highly recommend DLC pack 2. It's about £8 but you get mission 2-16 which drops every weapon over level 35ish. I ran that level over and over with the Wing Diver carrying all the other classes and it's pretty easy on Inferno (especially with good IDunn weapons, it's very easy with IDunn FFs). You want the best Caravan, best turrets (ZEXR), best plasma posts, best bunkers (note: there are some good options for bunkers - the Absolute Bunker is fab but there's a lower level one that has 24000 duration which is good because it has fast reloads).

The Air Raider has several uses as a support character. First things first, pick the best Caravan and when the level starts, throw it nearby. The Caravan gives out 20000 health and has 30000 armor. Basically if you're in trouble, go and sit in it.

Aside from that he has different options for supporting different types of level.

For levels with crowd control issues (56 and 81 are the main ones, anything with lots of bugs and flying enemies) you want the ZEXR turrets. If you've not got them, you'll be in trouble unless you're good with the Wing Diver.

For levels with big enemies (grand dragon on level 80, Brain on 85, Argo on 82) you want the best Plasma Battery Gun and you want to shoot it at a Wing Diver equipped with a Gungnir or Monster-S. You may want to occasionally equip a good bunker.

Note: the Caravan aside from being a good health station is a great vehicle for transporting both classes to a better location in a hurry. There's a horrible level (Crazy Skies) where you get two sets of Earth Eaters and a load of drones and deroys. That level is much easier to survive when you are in the corner of the level. The Caravan will get you both there and it'll survive the trip.

There are plenty of levels that will demoralise you on Inferno but trust me, this is the best way to beat them.

Not quite sure how I'll be getting the Fencer and Raider done though!
