    go to gaming then find lost planet.

    to me this was the best way for finding the target markers, as it shows a pic of everyone of them and how to get them. Actually this was the only site I used.

    credit to dmbledore for making an excellent guide

    oh as someone pointed out you have to collect all target marks in every mission across all difficulties. So that means beating it on easy all coins, normal all coins, hard all coins, and extreme all coins. but you showed know that. the guide above will show you each and every spot for the coins. from easy to extreme.

    also If you go through a mission and forget a target mark you can always go back and get that one you don't have to get the same ones again. Most likely you will have to replay some extreme missions. since some levels are so vast you won't be able to get all coins then beat the level. mostly missions 3, 8, 9, 11.

    SK Diabolic^ Go to the main menu settings for Missions, you'll see the target marks you've collected for each mission/difficulty, if Hard target marks are only showing on the Hard save file than and not both hard and extreme than you'll have to do them all the same storage.

    I actually remember a guy who had played 99 matches on one storage device, than 1 on another device and didn't unlock the 100 matches played achievement.

    All your stats on the new storage device save get reset if you notice; so that means Extreme mode probably won't even be unlocked, so it's best to do lot on one storage device/ save.

    You'll probably never read this but targets save at the end of the mission.

    I just got this achievements the other day. On the last level on the extreme, I would take the boss down to his last breath and THEN get the target markers. For some reason when you run out of T-ENG, you don't die like in most levels, so you can't die without getting hit. Anway, take the boss down 99% of the way, then get the markers, then hit him one last time to kill him. That way you don't waste time getting all the markers just to have the boss kill you - and then start all over again. Sometimes the last boss hits you with cheap hits and you die without a chance. This'll save you time but making sure he's going to die, then ignore him and get the markers, then kill him.

    HWNDarksideCan you help with Target Mark "E" on Mission 3? I cannot see it, let alone hit it with anything!

    FrizbogAnother reason to do this is that for some reason, when I would go get all target markers first, by the time I got back to the boss, he had already summoned both of his laser turrets. This made it much more difficult to knock his health down without getting killed myself.

    On the run that succeeded for me, I melee'd him incessantly as soon as the level began. Doing this, I got him well below half his health before he summoned both lasers. At this point, continuing to melee him without strategy would be suicide (due to his rockets, shield, lasers, etc.). So, I went to go get all target markers.

    After getting the target marks, I'm pretty sure I did most of the damage to him using the distance weapon. You can't kill him with it, but you can get his health down to a very low level. Whenever he charged, I avoided his 3 melee attacks (by simply keeping away from them) and then melee'd him at the end of his 3rd melee attack. If you mis-time your melee attack and don't damage him, DON'T try another melee attack. Get out of there and try again the next time he charges you.

    As stated in this solution, there is no time limit. You DON'T die if you run out of T-ENG. So take your time, and play it safe. Thumbs up.

    In order to get this achievement you need to play the game four times, once on each difficulty. Each difficulty has different target markers and in different locations as well. On youtube there is a user who has uploaded videos for every single level on every single difficulty. It is an excellent video guide which i used in order to get the other achievements for the target markers. I have uploaded the videos for the 1st level only but you can find the rest on his channel. I am posting these videos simply to show you the effectiveness of them and how helpful they are. All credit goes to teenjackbauer
