To unlock this achievement you must save the outlying occupied buildings in the mission entitled "Save Pepper" which is the 10th mission. This achievement can be unlocked during any difficulty but I highly recommend this on Easy.

This achievement is somewhat hard. I missed it the first time and you may just want to finish the mission first before trying this. While it is possible to get it the first time (I missed it when one building fell right near the end).

You will want to protect all YELLOW dots on your radar. These are the outlying occupied buildings.

Below is my guide on how to beat this level (it was written for the hardest difficulty but still works just fine for easy mode):

Mission 10: Save Pepper

Recommended Power Distribution: Life Support (up on the d-pad) the whole level.

NOTE: If I use the terms right, left, front or back I am referring to the large Research Facility you must protect. Image yourself on top of it, the front would the the part facing the land and the part facing the water is the back. The right would be the part to your right when facing your facing the front and left is the same idea.

This level is very hard. It took me two times (almost a third or more but I got lucky). Here is what I have to offer...

At all costs, you must protect the research facility. Most of the enemies will attack this building and if they blow it up Pepper gets blown up too... and from the name of the mission that is a bad thing. You don't have to worry about reboots because most of the enemy fire is at the building. If you fly through the green hoops (sorry I forgot their names) you will kill most of the missiles and enemies attacking the building if they are within range. So when you hear "Overloaded" they are active and doing their job, when you hear "Stabilized" you can fly through another green hoop and reactive the power surge.

Once you start the mission, fly straight ahead and you will see a green ring looking thing, fly through it on your way up to the research fac. Your main goal is to save that building. Be aware of the hovering enemies that attack it. Most of them will attack from the left and front sides but be careful and watch your radar! Several will sneak up and attack from the back and if you don't pay attention you will regret it later.

You will hear a warning soon about the outlying occupied buildings are being attacked or damaged. Fly to each of them and destroy the enemies attacking it ASAP and then return to the research fac. You will have to do this at least 3 times.

Once you get that first part done here comes the missiles. Use your repulors and missiles (Y when ready) to take them out. Aim your best. Remember you still have to take out the hovering crafts too but focus on the missiles. Ignore the secondary missions until the missiles have stopped.

The last part is pretty easy if you make it that far. You will hear something about "multiple warheads" This is you hint to GET on top of the research fac and get ready for some missile killing. they will come from the front right and front left. Use your RT and Y all the time. After the missiles stop your done! RELAX!
