I had some troubles and I thought it is a glitch. After finishing the game I just didn’t get the cheevo for Elite.. If you having same problems look at the bottom. Also there is some info on how to avoid things like that..
---SPOILER---SPOILER---SPOILER---SPOILER---SPOILER---SPOILER---SPOILER

So here are some tips to help you survive:

- Position of your camera, try not to shoot diagonal, meaning face the way you’re going to

- Use doors as cover, run into the room and get back out there as soon as you can. Stand behind doors/ corners and kill them nice and easy, take your time, patience is key..

- Upgrade order:
I suggest goin for extra damage with all weapons (except Rocket-launcher, I saved the money for more important things)
1. Rifle
2. MediKIT, very important..
3. Shotgun
4. Flamethrower
5. Gatling

- Max. amount of ammo:
To not waste any scattered ammo you may have to sell ammo
1. Rifle = 1800 rounds max
2. Shotgun =100…
3. Flamethrower = 1200…
4. Gatling = keep everything
5. Rocket = keep everything

- Save ammo and shoot bursts, use the grenades effectively

- Very important: keep your armor suits, the Gatling and automatic-canons for the hard parts of the game (the train, the mainframe room, the intex room..)

- You’ll trigger ambushes by walking to certain points, looting stuff and activating things, so be prepared for that. A good level knowledge is very helpful!

- Know the order of your weapons & WATCH YOUR RADAR


Enemies:

Crawler
Kill them by spamming the B button while spinning in circles as fast as you can. You don’t have to change weapons for that

Healer
They have a orange abdomen and deserve to die fast and first (in open areas, face to face fight, haha I like that..)!!
Extremely dangerous cause a yellow ray linked to another alien means big trouble for you (In this case you should try to retreat around corners or even better doors)

Shooters
Just strafe, helped a lot

Shield
Some of them will raise their claws to get protection, the claws are glimmering in blue color.. take your shotgun to bring them down quickly after removing their hands

Charger
Best to keep them at distance.. use your Rifle to stop them in time

Paralyze
Some will stun you when getting to close. These ones are slow and can even be killed with your pistol..

Boss Fights:
1. First Level, approx. in the middle. You should have your Rifle upgraded to maximum damage and lots of ammo
Never stop shooting till you kill it, move in circles all around the platform. Use armor/ health after he shoots the gooey blue- green stuff. Easy..

2. At the very end of the 4th level, you’ll encounter a room full of Spider webs.
Save the game, equip some armor and take your Gatling with you on that wicked Train-ride!
Shoot at the grabbing claws first (every time there’ll be 4 of them). When the Spider appears throw a flash grenade and keep shooting with your Gatling gun. Very easy this way

Other difficult rooms:
1. First level at the end: You have to move a bridge to get further.. Very hard without a automatic cannon, if you saved one it’s a piece of cake..

2. Mainframe room (level 3): That’s a though one.. after the escort of MIA you’ll enter the Mainframe- room.
You should turn right collect and activate everything around the core (4 Panels and lots of nice stuff). Activate the last Panel (the one on the left side from where you entered the room) and immediately run into the nearby gab, mo em down with your Gatling/ Flamethrower and activate the next switch close to you (can be activated after approx. 10 seconds).
Now, run over to the first Panel you activated and hide in that gab.. Have Med kits ready or use armor BEFORE you start the sequence

3. Intel-room (level 5): Yap, no joke.. You’ll know when your there, there’s a big green INTEX sign. Place a automatic weapon and use your Gatling, without will be very hard


Troubleshooting:
1. The reason why I didn't get it at my first try is hard to figure out, but I can write down what I did..
It popped after level 4 and I started a whole new game (I kept my old saves on memory card, or you can delete them). That means mission completion is linked to your gamer tag.

Think I didn't get it because I lost the connection to xbox-live (router reconnect) in level 4 and the game recognized it at the end of the level (where you upload your High scores)! I remember having some troubles there but it worked after reconnecting to live..
I deleted my cache and played the Prologue as well..

You may not even have to delete your saves, but after having issues with "time to bleed" cheevo in Alien Breed 1, it wouldn't surprise me..

2. I only reed about this problem and don’t know if they fixed it in the latest patch, think they did..
Anyway there is/ was a glitch which prevent from moving forward in the story, which is caused by entering the mainframe-room (and looting the stuff inside) BEFORE the escort of MIA. Usually a cut scene will close the doors around the core.
Just keep the save after second level..

EDIT: It isn't fixed.. Do NOT enter the Mainframe-Room before the escort of MIA !!!! Very important

Hope this helps, have fun! Please vote if you think this is helpful..
