Edit March 25th 2014: As much as I went all Math style of explaining it. I realized there is a few other factors. Use Vortex Grenades on big BIG clusters of stuff. Sector 3 and Sector 4 are the best places but if you can find a bunch of clusters and drop a Vortex Grenade, It can get the job done. just make sure not to stand in front of it.

This Achievement in Ion Assault has to be the most hardest to deal with. You have to earn 2 extra lives in a single Orb combo.

To earn an extra life normally. You have to reach 100,000 points every time. And for this achievement you need to reach 200,000 points in a Single Orb combo.

This may seem impossible but doing some basic mathematics. Here is the chart I got.

1 orb = 100
2 orb = 200
3 orb = 300

To earn the 2 or 3 orbs. You need to combo your shots. Like destroy 2 or 3 asteroids or enemies. And depending on what you destroy depends on how many orbs are dispersed. Here is another thing about the combo

Getting 1,000 points in orbs reaches 2x Multiplier
Getting 3,000 points in orbs reaches 3x Multiplier
Getting 5,000 points in orbs reaches 5x Multiplier

From 5,100 and above is stayed at 5x.

you Need to reach 40,000 orb points with a 5x to get 2 extra lives to make it a sure shot that you’ll get it OR Makes it where you have like x95,000 points. 5x - 21,000 orb points,
Only way to earn the 2 life achievement

Using x as a variable, for any number like 0-9 like if it was like 533,000 and so on. Down below using the ten and one thousand digits if the numbers are close to those. These are the orb points you need to earn to reach the 2 life in a single combo.

x99,000 - 20200
x98,000 - 20400
x97,000 - 20600
x96,000 - 20800
x95,000 - 21000
x94,000 - 21200
x93,000 - 21400
x92,000 - 21600
x91,000 - 21800
x90,000 - 22000

Every one thousand slot you need to collect 200 orb points more the normal. So it ranges from 20,200 to 40,000 orb points or collecting at least 400 orbs (depending if there single, double or triple orbs).

The Best Stage I found out from earning enough orbs to reach that goal is Sector 4 “Tombs of Tau Ceti”, Stage 3. If you’re Lucky to not DIE from all the enemies spawning in all sides and corners. Reaching that goal is not hard to do. There are 2 Power shields, and 1 Gravity Boosts. With some Vortex Grenades and Seeking Drones that can help out as well. If you can save those from Stage 1. Those can help you the most.

This is the Best way I can think of earn this. This guide might be too late to post since the game is not on the XBL Marketplace and that not many people play it. But if you still have it on your HDD. And this works. Then awesome. Using mathematics and the best stage that has many orbs. This should help. Just practice and you can get it

Another thing, if you keep dying on Stage 3. Follow the pattern. Enemies spawn based on how many Asteroids or Debris is destroyed. Also some enemies do spawn right when you start. So be careful from that. Follow the pattern how they spawn and time your shots right. Same as using seeker drones, Plasma Torus and Vortex grenades as well as Power Shields and Gravity Boosts.

Good Luck to all.

pretty easy: start with the first level of sector 2. get close to 100.000 before you end the level. (i had 85.000) then start level 2 and get a little more then 100.000 in one run. in my case it was 5x23.000. that`s it.
