    Note: It appears this is a buggy achievement. I was able to get it, but others have not. It appears that having skulls on affects the achievement.

    This will happen midway through the mission. You will clear an arena and then an Elite will drop Mantis for you.

    The easiest thing to do is to take turns. One goes out, targets, launches missles, and falls back to recharge shields while the other teammate moves forward and attacks.

    Keep leapfrogging like this, and you'll have it in no time.
