    Das Kuhnen points out that any DLC missions that pop up (i.e. the Normandy Crash Site and Firewalker Missions) count towards this achievement as well.

    Das KuhnenGood solution DK! Might be worth adding that the free Normandy and Firewalker DLC's in the cerberus network also count towards this. I had only done one N-7 mission and the chievo popped after my last Firewalker mission.

    Alternative way of getting this achievement is to make a save before the mission completion. Continue with mission and successfully complete it. This counts as 1, load save and repeat the previous a further 4 times and this will be tracked as the required 5 for the achievement.

    Easy method of obtaining a quick 50g, but I'd advise you to use dropK1CK ninJA's solution, purely on the basis that Mass Effect 2 is fantastic.

    Agreed, this game is so well made that it's actually enjoyable and worthwhile to play through several different missions rather than re-grinding the same one.

    There are, however, some missions on which you cannot save prior to leaving.
    Eagle Nebula | Amun System | Neith - you may be able to save before deactivating the transmitter at the far end of the ravine.

    Some missions are incredibly convenient for this method:
    Eagle Nebula | Strabo System | Jarrahe Station - Station VI became paranoid after MSV Corsica docked to drop a shipment of mechs-- killed entire crew. There are no enemies [or friendlies] present on this mission-- it is completed by turning on the power in three areas (use fortification to proceed through engineering) and then the central mainframe which will allow you access to disable the VI *remeber to save after activating the hub power station.
