    Mission: Kizingo Boulevard
    Difficulty: Any

    From the beginning, get in the scorpion and proceed through the level as normal until you reach the "Kizingo Boulevard" gate and checkpoint. When you enter this area, you should hear a marine say "I gotta take the shot!", which means you are in the correct area.

    1 - Get out of your scorpion and kill on the marines riding on the side
    2 - Clear ground enemies, wraiths, ghosts and dropships, but be careful to keep the banshee up
    3 - Circle around the roundabout and you'll find a back alley. Park your scorpion halfway up this alley.
    4 - Lure the banshee into this alley by trying to make it follow you. It must get caught trying to turn around.
    5 - If lured correctly, it'll faceplant!
    6 - Go behind the banshee and shoot the pilot using the SMG or a Beam Rifle. DO NOT melee them! As you are shooting them, it is CRITICAL that you hold the "board" button, which is cn_RB by default.
    7 - If you successfully kill the pilot while holding the board button and without blowing up the banshee, you will automatically board it as they die.

    Achievement unlocked.

    EditedAardvark0Infuriating achievement! Spent an hour luring a banshee into a corner four times, but whenever I kill the pilot the banshee immediately explodes. Happened four times!

    Hellspawn DeathI finally unlocked it but I started at Charlie Rally point. Killed the two marines up top with the fuel rod cannon. I went to the alley and the Ghosts followed me with no issue without the tank

    On the Level Kizingo Boulevard you will come to a section where a marine is using a gauss cannon and the plaza is filled with two wraiths, some phantoms, some ghosts, a bunch of enemies as well as a banshee or two. Make sure to kill everything in the plaza before you attempt this to make it a bit easier. Pick up a plasma pistol and try to lure the banshee into one of the alleyways by shooting around it and walking towards the alley. After a certain distance it will try to turn away and get stuck boosting against the ground. Wait until it gets stuck in a corner or against a wall. Then walk up to the banshee, hit the brute with a fully charged plasma shot, and lightly pepper him with your smg while simultaneously holding whatever button you use to get into a vehicle. If you don't the banshee will explode when the brute dies. That is the method that worked for me, but if you have any issues with the solution then let me know and I will change the solution.

    *Edit - Mister Ster brought to my attention that there is a marine in the plaza who is on a balcony above the cannon that can shoot down the banshees before you can work on the achievement. I would recommend getting rid of him and any other marines in the area, or even ones riding on your scorpion before you make your attempt.
