    This achievement is a missable achievement unlocked in the final mission of the game.


    At the end of the mission after the Star Hawk crashes into the destabilized moon you have to outrun the explosion through an asteroid field, following behind your flight leader.

    Simply shift all power to engines and throttle all the way up through the asteroid field and caverns. The achievement should unlock on the mission complete screen.

    Note - if you're having trouble maneuvering in the tight spaces try using a Y Wing or a ship with an enhancement with a negative impact on top speed. This should allow you to be at full throttle without going incredibly fast.

    wookieepuppyI set it to engines (left on d-pad) and went at top speed ) left thumb stick UP ) all the way in an x-wing and this did not pop.

    Does it have to have left stick pressed in (L3) ? .. because this will only last a few seconds....... keep on pressing L3 repeatedly?

    I did it with a y-wing, and pressed the L3 in every few seconds and the achievo did pop.

    So, either i made a slight gaff in the x-wing, or maybe you need to be pressing L3 for short bursts of speed now and then.

    OsakamitsuIts for max speed so hitting the boost would make sense to me. Im just about to try it for the first time though. Ill let you know if I get it.

    OsakamitsuAlright, I got it. Wasn't too bad. took me a few tries to get my rhythm down with it. I held up on the left stick the entire time. I did not let go. I also did not take damage. And I did use boost. Although I dont think boost matters though I cant confirm. I think you just have to hold up the entire time so you maintain the normal maximum speed. if you take damage it will slow you down and by my guess void the achievement since you are no longer going max speed. Luckily its not a super long run.

    eMmpZDon't drink and fly. Because you will eat rocks. Not a hard achievement, you just have to concentrate and don't drink like I should of done.

    SallyNastyGood advice on both the Y wing and sobriety. Tried it 4 times while in my cups - couldn't do it. First try while sober. Mind the debris.
