Ackbar's Elite (40)
"It's a trap!" - Were detecting Imperial forces heading to your position, survive while we send reinforcements!

Endor 'Cheat'
This can be completed Solo or in CO-OP.
There is a nice cheat on Endor as you're able to go up to the highest Ewok tree platforms which the enemies cannot reach you on but can still shoot you.
The simple cheat just requires the jump pack, as you'll use this to fly up to the higher platforms above the standard ones. Be warned though, the enemies and AT-ST's (chicken walkers) can shoot you depending on yours and the enemies position.

They shouldn't really be a problem though, I'd suggest keeping an eye out for the shadow troopers (black/cloaked). As they tend to sit underneath you.

You can actually go even higher on some other platforms, but wont really be necessary for this achievement.

I've provided a video below on how to get to and on the platform.

Before You Start! -
Upon starting Endor you will need to equip the Scoundrel Hand. This hand gives you the jump pack but also the ION grenade which does huge damage to the AT-ST's (Even more damage if you hit them directly).

The Force

For weapons I'd recommend using the RT-97C as it's an all-round death machine which will wipe all types of enemies easily from above and at long ranges. - Although any weapon with decent range should do fine.

The 'Cheat'
A short video that shows the location of the cheat and how to get up to it.

Edit 28/02/2018: When I made the video Xbox has deleted the clip as it was recorded with the DVR. Apologies in advance however thanks to the comments there is a YouTube video guide now linked.

You may also be able to earn the 'On the ball' achievement using this method, however for the sake of not dying, I'd go for this after you've done Ackbar' Elite.
