It might be very hard for some to get this achievement before you have reached lvl 20 or even better 20+. Don't wreck your nerves before you have levelled up enough.

I suggest having a full team of 20/20+ guardians. No class specifics, every setup can and will make it through the strike mission if they pay proper attention to: survival.

We have picked the very first available strike in Old Russia: "Devil’s Lair". Enemies will be easy pickings throughout the whole mission. But there are some difficulties to master/avoid:

First difficult area is when your ghost is hacking the laser barriers and you have to basically defend the area. Witches and Captains shouldn't be a huge problem. But beware of the two constantly respawning snipers on the opposite side of the room, the cloaked one on the far left and the cloaked Fallen Ninjas rushing towards you and causing massive damage if you are not on the lookout for them. Best spot to replenish your downed shield is right behind the container next to the "thing" your ghost is hacking.

Second and last difficult area is when you encounter the first boss of that mission: a gigantic robotic Spidertank. His huge cannon can and will blast unsuspecting guardians to pieces. But there is a ridiculously easy way to beat it: When you enter the area rush up on the right hand side of the map. You will enter a well protected corner from which you can easily shoot the spiders legs (the weak spot of the tank). When your team has dealt a certain amount of damage to the Tank it will go down every now and then, weakened and helpless. Now the weak spot is above the red head, an area looking wounded, electrified. Shoot there for bonusdamage. Shots to the legs at this point of time won't deal any damage - "immune" will show up when you shoot them. This repeats a couple of times: shooting legs, tank is down, shooting head, tank back up, shooting legs etc.

No one should ever run around and fight the other cannonfodder fallen that scatter around the area, it's pointless. If you are running out of ammo it might be necessary but not all at the same time (you can buy reserve ammo boxes at the tower to replenish your amunition any time you see fit in the game). Do not move up on the left hand side: you will be shot by a sniper high up in a room on the right side of the map. By camping on the right hand side in that - again - very well protected area you avoid being shot by him. Easy.

Note: in some very rare occassions some Fallen walk around and attack you from the back, ruining the advantage of that spot a bit.

The final boss fight against Septimus Prime is even easier to beat. Hide a bit here and there, no special places that provide huge dangers or advantages since septimus is warping a lot around. I found it very comfortable camping inside of the container on the left hand side or inside the adjacent room (beware of Fallen coming up the stairs) but best is when the team is spreading out a bit, forcing Septimus to readjust it's aim constantly.

Basic etiquette as with all similar achievements of this kind in any game:
Do not push! Situational awareness is key, identify the biggest threats and take them out quickly (witches, captains, snipers, cloaked Ninja Fallen).

With a team of 20/20+ guardians this achievement is a walk in the park. Good luck!
