    Preferred to play game on an easier setting for this achievement.

    Simply keep your shields full as often as you can, if you are a Soldier use your Shield Boost ability to keep them full and take cover often or if you are a Biotic, use the Barrier skill.

    Also purchase / find the Shield Interface upgrades as they are good for adding shield bars, you can have up to 6 bars.

    All in all you will probably get this achievement without even trying.

    Unlikely PotatoI got it aswell at the end of my first playthrough without even trying.

    All i can advise is that when your shield goes, take cover and recharge your shield before leaving cover to continue the fight.

    I did this as a soldier on medium.

    Take cover often. Lean out, take shots at people, and when your shield is depleted, take cover, and use shield boost. Lean out, shoot more, and then use (I can't remember the name >.<) That one ability that stops all cool downs, and use shield boost again. Rinse and repeat as necessary
