    This achievement sounds fairly tricky, but if you have two players (or two controllers), it's actually incredibly easy. Load up the mission on your preferred difficulty (I'll recommend Easy just for the achievement) and have the other player/controller blast through the mission as normal. The achievement should unlock at the end (it did for me). If the other player wants the achievement, just do it again and switch roles.

    I don't have a guide for doing this solo, but this is by far and away the easiest method.

    Malachi GleasonAnyone who might still need this, I just got it on accident.

    This worked on PC: finish the mission so the cut scene begins, save and quit. Resume play, and instead of the cutscene you'll have the play evaluation screen and an otherwise quite difficult achievement.

    TrashKityKatI'm not sure what my issue is but I've done this level at least 3 times coop and I didn't even touch the triggers let alone the bumper (where my armor ability is set). Not sure if I just need to play not touching it or solo but I did this coop for my friend helping me so we know it's possible coop.

    This can be done solo without any of the hammer or grenade jump mumbo Jumbo. Simply load up the map and play normally using your armour abilities. At any time after you no longer need the armour abilities Save/Quit and resume your game from them menus. Complete the rest of the level without Armour abilities and Bingo Bango there's your Mango.

    I can confirm this does work as I did it myself. I am told you can wait as long as just needing to press the missile button however I saved and quit at the start of the last area and activated the Missiles and fired them without the abilities to earn the achievement.

    For those of you who want/need to complete this solo I've made a video depicting an easy route through the only section that seems like it requires an armor ability - the jetpack section. Make sure you do not accidentally use your sprint ability.

    There is no commentary for the video so a couple of things to note ahead of time:
    1. This can be done on Easy difficulty, so I recommend taking advantage of that.
    2. Make sure you pick up a gravity hammer from one of the two brutes in the area with the elevator. You will be needing to use it 6 times (or more if you mess up a jump) so make sure that you save at least 30% ammo as each use costs 5%.
    3. For jumps using the gravity hammer, swing the hammer right BEFORE jumping.
    4. For jumps using frag grenades, jump just BEFORE the grenade explodes and swing the hammer while you still have upward momentum.

    ClandorBowmanI just want to add, for the last grenade jump in the video. I couldn't do it because I had low health and it kept killing me but you don't need to grenade jump there you can just gravity hammer jump inf you jump on the ledge glass first

    Wookiee HairemAfter I throw that first grenade the game won't let me swing the hammer in time. Is there like a cancel animation for the grenade that lets you do it?

    z RagnaroK zFYI, you DO NOT need a grenade for the last time. For some reason my game didn't spawn the grenade after you make the initial grenade + hammer jump, but there is another grenade to the left of the path you need to take up the stairs of the next part. You can jump on the large white pipes near the wall in the corner, and there is another grenade next to a shotgun there. Regardless, I simply used the hammer jump + crouch to do the very last jump in the video. Hope this helps.
