UPDATE 12/20/2014 - Apparently Update 15.6, which should be the next patch, will introduce a level 23 - 25 Hijack mission on Europa. This should be MUCH easier to win than the ones on Ceres.

UPDATE 2/15/2015 - The newest update has brought the lower level mission on Europa and this is a much easier mission than the Ceres ones as expected.

I don't have this achievement because I keep getting stuck with randoms who are terrible at life. However I have managed to almost solo this mission a few times so I figured I'd share some tips for it.

Firstly Hijack only appears on Ceres as of this writing (update 14.7). That's way at the end of the game so you're going to either have to work hard for this one or get someone to bring you there.

Secondly the way this mode operates is somewhat odd:
- First you must hunt down a Fomorian Power Core through the stage. Once you do so you'll activate a console to get it moving along the tracks.
- To get it moving people must stay close by to allow it to drain your shields as an energy source. Thus prepare to have low or no shields. However don't bring a low shield warframe or you risk it running dry completely at a really bad time.
- While you're escorting the core it will generally outpace the Grineer. Unfortunately it stops at checkpoints along the way which allow them to catch up and spawn on the other side of said checkpoint door. If it gets damaged too much it will be destroyed so you must kill them quickly. Your shield will recharge while you wait.

Even if someone brought you here as a low level Warframe you can still help out. The following are just some tips for newbie types:
- Mag is a great help here since Shield Polarize keeps your health up while charging the core continuously. Spec for high range and efficiency so you catch more people and it's cheaper.
- If you didn't choose Mag, Excalibur and Volt can be tweaked to have fairly high shields especially with a decent level Redirection.
- Another great suggestion is a Loki specced for very high power efficiency and then run around spamming Radial Disarm. Enemies can't shoot the thing if they don't have their weapons so you can leap around, disarming people as you go and not necessarily worry about having to kill them all.

For higher level characters you have a few more options:
- Raksa Kubrow can recharge your shields with their Protect ability. They'll also distract the Grineer troops but run the risk of getting downed in the middle of a group, forcing you to either ditch the core or the kubrow.
- On the same token a Sentinel mod called Guardian will allow your shields to be recharged when they empty. Note that the the boost is only really useful if you can get it to level 2 or more.
- Shield Restore or Team Shield Restore consumables are an obvious boon.

Hope this helps and if you have any questions or comments just post and I'll do what I can to help clear it up.
