    There really is no set way to get this easily,so all i can do is offer tips on what i did.
    1.Set the difficulty to one and the reserve lives to five.Then find the bug stage and just keep at it utilizing these tips.
    2.When running, move diagonally.(for some reason you run faster)
    3.Make every shot count, missed shots mean more replicating.
    4.Try to get as close as possible when firing as you can get more shots out.
    5.Clear the sides first, bugs on the top tend to jump off screen and disappear.

    R3NEG4D3This is the best advice you can get for this achievement. It's pretty hard and gets annoying trying over and over. The most important point Pink Predalien makes is, "make sure every shot counts".

    ArcCscI don't think the difficulty effects anything but the patterns for the levels, I believe level 1 is the same on all difficulties.

    TheBlackDragonXMoving diagonally is the key here. The split second of time it saves can be the difference between having a few bugs to deal with, to being overwhelmed.

    This one is very annoying. Easiest way to do this is start on the left, then drop down and go to the right, then up top. You should not miss any shots because it won't let you shoot again until that bullet disappears. The left bugs multiply so shoot fast. After the left side is out, the bugs on the right will start multiplying. And also the same for the top. By the time you get to the top though, there will be a lot of bugs. The closer you get to the bugs, the quicker your gun fires. Good luck

    Here is a video guide of me clearing out all the Grid Bugs on Level 1 RPG. Very challenging and tricky achievement. You have to get lucky with the placement of the Grid Bugs - it took me many attempts to finally pull this off.

    Attack the right side grid bugs first, then move across to the left side and finally clear out the top. Moving diagonally is quicker than horizontally or vertically.
