    For this achievement you must pass Mechat Shooting Stage 3 while taking NO damage. This stage occurs on Disc 3.

    First off you will want to upgrade your mechat with all the extra parts, see my solution here:

    for locations and what you need to get them.

    I'm basing this guide on that you have fully upgraded the mechat.

    The Landshark starts off right in front of you, keep firing with your machine gun and take out the mines while hitting the shark with your missiles. After taking about 3/4 of its health it will move to your left side. At this point he will fire off some missiles so keep on the machine gun, he will then move behind you, which he well then like to fire off two missiles: one left and one right, just keeping laying on the machine gun and missiles until his health is gone.

    A short cut scene will occur and then another health bar will pop up. At this point lay into him with all of your missiles and keep that machine going as he will start shooting of 4-5 rocket groups and splitting down both sides of the screen, also he will occasionally fire 10 missiles straight at you so KEEP THAT MACHINE GUN FIRING. Taking out the missiles are your top priority so take them out then focus on hitting the shark.

    As long as you upgraded your Mechat your machine gun will never overheat so don't ever stop firing it.

    Note: Also BE SURE that when you kill the shark that there are no missiles left as once it dies if there are any missiles left in the sky they WILL hit you and you will fail, it's happened to me twice and boy will it make you angry.

    This may take a few tries even with an upgraded Mechat, if you don't upgrade your Mechat you will be in for a very stressful time.

    The achievement will pop soon after the shark dies.

    First of all, Crimson Drifter's guide is a great way to start. As he mentions, it is especially important to fully upgrade the Mechat before attempthing this. That said, if you're like me, you may have a difficult time at a couple points.

    First, after the Mechat pulls around from the front to the back, it will fire off several missiles coming from different directions. If you sweep your reticule over the bumps on the back of the land shark's roof, you can actually missile-target the land shark's missile launchers. Taking these out guarantees you won't have anything to worry about.

    Secondly and more importantly, taking out the second health bar can be very tricky because there are so many missiles flying everywhere. You can sweep the land shark all you want, but there's only one place you're allowed to target: the symbol right on its nose. You *can* multi-target that spot, though, and that's the key. As soon as you regain control, quickly sweep over that spot repeatedly with your reticule in a very tight line until it has targeted 8-10 times, then let loose with the missiles. The land shark will drop before it ever even has a chance to fire off a shot of its own.
