    Mission 10 - Enemy Lines
    Difficulty: Easy (Co-op Recommended)

    Towards the end of the mission, you'll get into a Phaeton, board the Kraken and destroy its power core. Once you destory the power core, it will be in the "doomed" state, and you should have about a minute to grab this achievement. If in co-op have one of your teammates land their Phaeton on the top of the Kraken, and just jump on top. Slowly have the teammate lift off the ground and the achievement will unlock. Reload the last checkpoint if you want to trade places or if you fail. If doing this solo, it can be a little more complicated to get the AI to do what you want, but you'll need to run to the surface of the Kraken, order them into the Phaeton and jump on top as they get in and try to take of. If you are killed as they take off and were on top as it began to move, the achievement will unlock.

    Complete this section and the rest of the level without destroying any Kraken Shade turrets to unlock:

    Darth Hawk CZJust an addition... we did this in 3 player coop and we all got the achievement simultaneously. You don't have to trade places.

    HollowVoiceEasy solo. Just park Phaeton up top. Destroy core and run back up to it. Order AI to board jump on top and wait. When it lifts off you get it right away.

    JoujouboxI keep ordering the AI to get in the Phaeton but they won't listen and I get blown up :/

    Update: To give myself more time I ended up driving the Phaeton next to the core then destroying the core from the top of the Phaeton. Also Vale is an idiot and when I ordered her to shoot the core she kept shooting at the floor.

    Mission 10: Enemy Lines

    This can be done on any difficulty, and whilst it may be possible in Solo, it will be far easier in Co-op.

    Towards the end of the mission you will have to destroy the power core of a Kraken (very large ship). You must use a Phaeton (small ship) to get over to the Kraken. Use cn_LB and cn_RB to control the altitude of the Phaeton. You may want to destroy all the enemies and turrets before you land. Have one player remain in their Phaeton. Go inside the Kraken and work your way down. You will come across a pair of Banshees (small ships) on a hanger deck, and when you approach them the hanger bay doors will open. Have the person in the Phaeton move alongside the Kraken outside the hanger, so all you have to do is step on to their ship. The power core is down just a little bit further. Destroy it then go back to the hanger and step onto the waiting Phaeton. All players will then get the achievement.

    Every mission with combat has two extra achievements. The other one for mission 10 is

    Dralunt has this method for getting it done in Solo:
    Once you enter the hanger bay and see the banshee you can fly it back and to where the phaeton's spawned. Drop it off at the hanger ( not near the door, it may fly out when you trigger the explosion.) and have any of the other Spartans jump in with the cn_up then hop on quick, you don't even need to leave all you need to do is touch the top while an AI is piloting it and the event is triggered. Super easy solo.

    HolyHalfDeadThanks Dralunt

    FiveWizzI tried the above method Solo from Dralunt and I couldn't get it to pop. Went over to one of the side ledges in the Banshee; instructed one of the squad into the freshly spawned Phaetons because they followed me over; and hopped on top. We took off and everything and it still wouldn't pop. Got it eventually just by hopping on top of one from the Kraken after the initial blast. It's tight timing but it's possible.
