Chapter 8 - Troll Home Security.

So obviously the aim of this achievement is to complete the chapter without getting hit directly by a cannon. When it says directly I was to confused to whether it meant every cannon in the chapter or just destroyable ones. So to be on the safe side We'll avoid every cannon.

Okay so progress through the level until you come across the first cannon. You will be advised to take this cannon out using an artillary shell that you'll find in a dispenser. Use a giant to pick this up and throw at the cannon. Don't walk in the line a fire, simply stand by the wall and throw it in the cannon's direction (not too close or else you'll end up throwing the shell at the wall).

You won't encounter the next stationary cannon until you'll progressed through The Tilting Tower. Once you've completed that section you'll find the next cannon over a small wall. Again simply use a giant to throw an artillary shell and destroy this cannon, and also the next cannon past the lock puzzle.

Okay now the frustating part. This part isn't exactly hard, but it's take patience.

You'll that find artillary cannons are shooting in a sequence across a run way. The simply way of completing this is to take a minute to analyse the shooting pattern and look for midway safe spots between you and the next stone wall. Mid way safe spots are not an issue while completing the first run way, but are extremely useful during the next too. Again patience is key.

Once you've completed the third run way you'll be ambushed by enemies. Kill theses and the achievement is yours.
