Mission 7 "Total Destruction"

To unlock, clear level 7 with Destruction rate of 100.0%. Destruction rate is shown after clearing the level.
The most important point to get 100% is destroying the Sol of this stage. You must destroy all other enemies as well, but meteors (including red meteors) are exceptions and do not count to the rate.

You have to play in Xbox 360 Mode or Score Attack Mode, Play Style = SOLO or DOUBLE.
Difficulty must be EASY OR HIGHER and continues ARE allowed.
You can also change other settings, like setting no. of players to 5, bomb stock to 7 in Option.

So the recommended setting for this achievement is, using stage select to start from 1-7, difficulty easy, 5 players and 7 bombs.

With continues available, destroying normal enemies is not a big problem once you know where the enemies come in force. Just bomb them.

The main issue here is destroying the Sol. It's located a bit after you've entered into a big spaceship. A mini-boss will appear(named LA-10A, see page 6 of in-game Gallery). After you've destroyed it, you would see two small turret and a tiny pyramid between them. Hover on the pyrmaid for one or two seconds and the Sol will appear. Destroy it.
Many enemies appear before this scene, so you'd better use some bombs to clear them before you go for the Sol.

For weapon selection, I prefer vulcan(red) and homing(H) for catching smaller enemies, but secondary weapon should be changed to nuclear(M) or radar(R) before destroying the Sol. Homing tends to lack the firepower to destroy it.

If you couldn't reach 100% even you've destroyed the Sol, record your play and watch the replay to find where you've missed. There are no hard to find enemies other than Sol in this level, so you would be able to find your mistake with ease. Using bomb there may be a good idea.

Although this is not a difficult achievement, please note also that this isn't as easy as any noob can unlock. Perhaps you'll need some practice and have to develop your own pattern to destroy all enemies. Good luck!
