    This is relatively straightforward - in Mission 5, you need to obtain the "Marksman" medal.

    Marksman - Prevented any missile from damaging the GR-75s.

    Tips *Spoiler Alert*
    At the beginning of the mission, when you travel stealthily through the debri field, Cpt Amos will show up with his Star Destroyer to attack the convoy you are tracking. Best thing to do here is to position yourself alongside the Destroyer, aiming toward the convoy. Simply cycle through the targets with cn_A and shoot them down - should only take a few shots per missile (remember you can put power into your lasers to prevent them from overheating with cn_up). If you basically park alongside the Destroyer you shouldn't even get shot at, just takes some aiming really.

    Edit - This achievement will unlock at the end of the mission (as that is when you obtain the medals) - thanks to ReaperShadow666 for pointing this out!

    Juanchu77This is glitched. The marker jumps from 80%-ish to objective complete after the "all missiles are destroyed" line. No medal

    stealth fingerThis is working as of 16th Oct. The bar didn't fill all the way up but it still popped at the end of the mission.

    Tomahawk 5KTook several tries to unlock for me. Having your teammates shoot the missiles may void this, as it unlocked for me when only I shot them. Not 100% sure, but might be worth trying. The tracker was also bugged for me.

    The other guide is fine. But I had some issues so I thought I would add a solution to what helped me. Even though I was playing on story I was getting lit up no matter where I parked or it would seem I would miss missiles and I had no idea where.

    I followed this video (not mine - random one on YouTube):



    However, for me, it did not go as smoothly. Like I said before no matter where I sat I got lit up. Especially on pilot difficulty. Switching to story was a little better but it was still annoying.

    I think the worst part is that I kept restarting thinking I missed missiles cause the guy in the game would say "that's the last of the missiles", but my meter was not full at the top of the screen and it kept making me think I was missing some. But it turned out that it doesn't track properly. SO restarting all those times was probably useless.

    The other tips I can give are:

    1. click the left stick in and select objectives so you can easily highlight the missiles.

    2. But one of the things that made this MUCH easier was after pressing the A button to automatically highlight missile you can THEN hit the Y button to send your friends after the missile. That way if it picked a stray up that you're not facing, it would be getting attacks by your friends by the time you look at it. You do not need to be looking at it to press Y and getting your team after it. Just press Y immediately after pressing A to highlight it. You can be facing the opposite direction.

    3. Also don't forget to press up to select your lasers so you dont run out of ammo.

    4. Watch your ships control panel it will tell you what you have highlighted, a missile or a laser turret. That way you dont have to visually see it to know if you need to start turning your ship towards it.
