    During the pirate campaign, the easiest way to complete this is to airdrop a unit onto a 3 tile enemy controlled island and place a harvester that will end up sinking the entire island.

    In my experience, the achivement only seems to pop when the two tiles adjacent to the harvester are already cracked, so that when your next turn begins it will destroy the two tiles immediately.

    The achievement will pop instantly upon placing the harvester.

    FelshadeEh, I figured it'd be easier to just repost it worded better rather than have people read the comments.

    You are correct, though. 3 tiles that form and island, the center tile being at whatever level while the adjacent ones that are owned by the enemy being at level 1.

    FelshadeYep, many of the achievements in this game have poor descriptions. Doing what I can to write up something better on them as I figure them out.

    "Manual Override" sounds awful.

    KabuKiArcadeJust a note, I got this achievement without all three tiles being adjacent.

    I think the key is that the harvester has to be placed such that the CPU has no way to save the island (like taking back your harvester and sinking it with a self destruct). For me, it was a ^ shaped island, with the first and third tiles being at level one and the middle tile being level 2. Flew onto the center, placed the harvester, and the achievement popped.

    HeyMrBassmanI did the above 3 times before the achievement unlocked, so either it's glitched or there's a random extra requirement. On my successful attempt, there were some enemy walkers on one of the cracked tiles, maybe that is necessary.

    sonnyforpleThe achievement description is vague but the above solution is 100% correct. I landed on a 3 tile enemy island, 2 tiles must be cracked. the one I landed on was 2 levels higher. Land > build harvester > achievement pops.
