(Red targets=Pirate Ships) Really hard to hit, I found shooting from a distance as soon as you get them right in the middle of the crosshairs while moving forward if too far away seems to work.
You unlock the spaceship at $15,000.
Spaceship upgrade unlocks at $35,000 if you are struggling destroying ships.
I shot about 15 of them, in separate ships but in one sitting. So doesn't matter if you die or get destroyed.
They spawn in clusters of 2-3 ships in various areas close by.
Sorry I had to cut loads of footage as it took forever to kill the last one.
If you don't see any left to shoot, I'd eject from the ship and enter it again to try and fly to a different location. Sometimes you fly off too far from their view! (Thanks Bu5hr4ng3r)
cn_RS controls all of your movement with inverted controls, it makes it very tricky.
cn_LS controls the goats left foot, click cn_LT to work each button. From left to right is brake/acceleration/boost/eject
cn_RT Shoots
I thought the hardest part of this was getting used to the controls, but then i faced the pirates.
Just bare with it you'll master them
Jonny PreecePersonally, I found this more frustrating than 'The Flapmaster' achievement angry

Stuffyjimi18Yeah you're probably right, it's been a long time since I did that though.. ☺️

NoHeroes94I've shot about 15 down..nothing??

Stuffyjimi18Hey NoHeroes94, that's weird I definitely didn't shoot that many. The achievement does state "Blow up all pirate ships"
Is there any left?

Bu5hr4ng3rIf you don't see any left to shoot, I'd eject from the ship and enter it again to try and fly to a different location. Sometimes you fly off too far from their view! Hope that helps, these ships are a pain in the ass to shoot haha

SHOTOKANKATANAThis is fricking stupid!

J ROLLER 1979How many are there and does it upgrade the ship on its own?

Stuffyjimi18Ship upgrades itself when you hit $35,000. Not sure how many ships as i said i shot about 10 of them. Like Bu5hr4ng3r said if you can't find anymore and haven't got the achievement eject and jump in a fresh ship and you may find them.

KorewahondesI might be stupid but I couldn't even find how to have the ship move. I was just able to make it roll on itself with cn_RS. Also, I don't understand your description here: "click cn_LT to work each button. From left to right is brake/acceleration/boost/eject". Wchich buttons represent brake/acceleration/boost/eject ?

Stuffyjimi18Hey no you are quite right the controls aren't easy. The left thumb sticks controls the goats left foot which you move to each button and hit the the cn_LT to select either brake/acceleration/boost/eject. I hope this helps and doesn't make it even more confusing.

KorewahondesGood explonation, I got it! :) And I was able to unlock the 3 spatial achievements, pheww. After I understood how to move, I could understand how to kinda move where I wanted to lol.

metallicafan459I struggled to get the last 2 ships (although after I killed them I swear a 3rd spawned!)

Unlike all the other ships they were fast moving and I had no hope of locking on to them!

Found that if you fly away and keep the red square in your sights as you accelerate you can kill them before they move!

Lord NazuleLast two ships stay away and fire at box guys/gals. Don't pursue.

STRAWB3RY ANG3LThat last pirate ship was moving quick. I finally got it with the controller fixed to auto fire. He went down fast.

SkinstakovicJust to confirm the comment by NoHeros94, I shot at least 15 ships, all from distance and didn’t die. Every time I cleared a group another appeared until the 15th ship went down.

Stuffyjimi18Okay thanks for the confirmation Skinstakovic 👍

belgianplayer1can't find the last ship. and that flying gets me dizzy
Posted by belgianplayer1 on 06 Mar 18 at 03:06
belgianplayer1i went to gamehub and it popped when i didn't find any red ships

ForNorrathJesus that was frustrating. You have to shoot the last 2-3 from a distance. Just a pain getting it lined up just right.

Z1PPYZ3NOI needed 1 last ship, i got so mad and fustrated that I went to the comments to find some help of some sort. Then i saw @ForNorrath stateing that you have to shoot from a distance and line the shot up, it worked! Just begin to shoot the ship even if you only see the red square.

CurtiesonIt was 16 ships for me. Groups of 3, 3, 5, and 5. The last ship in the 4th group popped it.

The Bartlez 2I didn't have any issues with the ships not spawning but this is easily the worst achievement in the game. Prepare to spend extra time with this and once you shoot all the easy ships don't even bother trying to engage them at close range since they just peel off and become almost impossible to lock on. Just try and shoot in the center of the red squares from far away and eventually you'll destroy them.

Brave Fencer VuWith every additional DLC, this game continues to wear out it's initial charm with annoying achievements and bugs. Someone else said it best earlier, they're trolling us all the way to the bank.

Anyways, if you are like me and couldn't find the last pirate or freighter cluster, aim for the blue icons. They seem to spawn at fixed areas centered around the icons. For me specifically, the last group of ships I needed were in and around the area of the "Texas" icon.
