    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.

    sort of simple to do. once you reach the point where Dutch appears on your HUD kill all wraiths, enemies and friendlies and leave one Banshee alive. then lure him behind the building of the Gauss cannon and he should get stuck. then blast his feet whilst holding the action button and you should jump in the pilot seat

    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.

    Throwing another log on the pile here, lol. Honestly there's nothing new in my video that others haven't explained, but if you're interested in going along as you play with a video that has some of the miscellaneous achievements in order by mission, then you may like this.

    For this specific achievement, of course just run through Bazinga Kizingo Blvd on any difficulty, driving the tank through the mission. When you reach the gate with the Kizingo Blvd neon sign above it, beyond which is a roundabout with two Wraiths and a bunch of other enemies, this is the right area.

    Kill the enemies, including the Wraiths, but leave the two Banshees above alive. Head up the ramp to the left, and if you wait long enough (may have to drive down and back up the ramp once or twice) a Banshee will follow you and dive down, getting stuck on the pillars. Get out of the tank and head behind the Banshee. Carefully shoot the pilot, being sure not to damage the Banshee itself, while holding your 'board vehicle' button. If you're holding board as the Brute dies, you'll automatically jump into the Banshee and pop this.

    Shiny... begins at the 5:14 mark in the video.
