Space Ace (Secret)
Shoot at least 70 targets during the ride to Tau Volantis.

The opportunity for this achievement is at the end of Chapter 7. You will begin to fly the ship through space, and will be shooting targets during the flight.

For this achievement it is highly recommended that you do this in co-op. This achievement is very easy in co-op because you only have to either control or shoot, instead of both. Also, the main benefit is that during the predefined sequence where the ship needs a repair, 1 of you will still be able to shoot targets while the other repairs the ship, allowing you to easily get an extra 10-20 targets than solo. The achievement unlocks for both players as soon as you reach 70 total targets.

Keep in mind that you are able to "Restart Checkpoint" if you miss a lot of targets and are not comfortable continuing. Just make sure to restart the checkpoint sooner than later to give you a better chance.

Lastly, if you feel like you want to do this solo, it is hard, but still possible. First off, you'll want to get on the ship in Chapter 7, now "Save & Quit", and go back to the dashboard. Make a copy of your save onto the USB, and then start the game again using your harddrive save. This is useful because if you fail, you can back out and swap the USB save onto your harddrive faster than having to replay the entire 15 minute chapter. During the actual flight, you have very little room for error, maybe missing a total of 5 or so targets. If you miss anything, feel free to restart the checkpoint before it autosaves. If you are able to pull it off, you'll unlock the achievement during the section with the snow and rocks, as you get to the magical 70 targets.
