    Not much to say about this one. Completing Ignition mode within 25 minutes is pretty easy. I would recommend that you play through the game multiple times first (Finishing off every other achievement first) to get familiar with it and choosing a route which suits you best.

    You can't do much about the Trace Route hack levels except for using every speed boost and avoiding walls/bostacles, but you can very well decrease your time by creating shortcuts in the Hardware Crack levels. Remember: Your RIG Level carries over to further playthroughs; which means that from now on (if you've reached RIG Level 4, which you'll do after your first playthrough), you are able to use powerups which unlocked at a later point in the game before.

    Especially those block-removing powerups are incredibly useful - you will be able to finish levels in a few seconds instead of spending minutes since you can now just go through objects instead of going around them.

    System Override hack levels offer your a variety of possible solutions. Using units spawned by pressing Y and A always did the trick for me. What you want to do - since you're under pressure of time - is to try and eliminate all radar-looking enemies with that combo and once you've accomplished that, spam the X button - those units will always choose the quickest way to the exit automatically. Plus: Since you've taken out all radars, no enemy unit will attack you AND they're extremely fast, too. Also: Look for those "instable" blocks, which you can blow up by holding down RT, using those passages will save you a lot of time.

    I hope this is helpful. I got the achievement the very first time I've gone for it and I think you will, too!

    By the way: Cutscenes don't count towards the time!

    Axwell DOMG I stopped my time and including pausing and cutscene skipping I got 32:13 on my stopwatch. I thaught OK, I will not get it on route B as it is too long. After the route the achievement popped :D Time: 24:27. Lucky me ;)

    If you're having a hard time unlocking this achievement I have an extra tip for you: Play Ignition Mode (not leaderboards) and since the game saves after each successful hack you can quit out to dashboard and reload your save if you don't complete a hack successful right away or if you think you could have done it faster. Keep on playing until you completed every hack successful first time.
    I got the achievement on route B. Route A should be easy as well.

    HanxYou need to edit the solution and say that you need to dashboard out when exiting, because normal exiting keeps the time going.

    Dexter XBAThanks, I've added that.

    one tip i would use that i found handy is go the same route over and over while trying to get this achievement. you will get used to the puzzles and that quickens the completion time.

    also there are vids on here of the hardware cracks on this site and on youtube. i suggest pausing the vid as soon as it they complete it and then just copy the picture in the video! that what i did and it worked a treat!

    i personally found the trace route hacks the most annoying and hardest. but as i say, keep going the same route while trying to earn this cheev. u will get to know the trace route hacks pretty well and that give you an advantage. also try a keep your power-ups like boost and the firewall to the last half or last third of the race because using them early on seems to have no effect, the enemy just seem to catch u what ever you do! annoying yes.

    trace route hacks are also the puzzles that take up the most time while playing ignition mode, they will make or break your time come completion.

    while the system overides can be done in about a minute, and the hardware cracks about 30 secs max each, you looking at a good 3mins a puzzle for the trace route hacks, if you dont win, then your right back at the start again and making you roughly 3minutes behind already!! not good.

    i got this achievement by going Route B at a time of 21mins 35secs

    (that was with completing all the trace route hacks first time)

    hope this helps out!! even if its just a little ( :
