When Trip is attacked by common mechs she will use an Electro-Magnetic Pulse to stun them. During this time Monkey can then attack the mechs unimpeded. The EMP takes a few minutes to recharge, so Trip is vulnerable then. Don't let them wake and get her!

After saving her for the 3rd time it will pop. One time in chapter 2 this is scripted to happen and that counts toward the achievement. Another is in chapter 10.
Ashen SeraphThere are actually 2 scripted times, the second is late in the game (Chapter 10, I think). Both count. This means you'll only need it to happen once more.

Also, to make it perfectly clear, she isn't counted as rescued until the EMP fully recharges, so don't get caught off guard when she uses it the 3rd time and the achievement doesn't immediately unlock.

neeker75You can get them all in Chapter 2. First scripted one, followed by after you hijacked the gun. You could deliberately let the mechs get to her, and then save her. Then, shoot every mech until the last broadcaster mech. This dude takes forever to reach her. By the time he he reaches her, her EMP would be recharged. I got it this way, tried it thrice on Chapter 2 just in case and all three times it happened the same way. In any case.

Bjarke Briegot it after having completed the game once on normal and then started a new playthrough on hard - which means I got it in chapter 2 of the second playthrough obviously. Guide is good for pointing out details though.

Ehekky@Bjarke Brie havent got it yet, but I guess the same thing will happen with me... :) playing it on normal, already got past the first scripted EMP save, but she hasn't even been attacked after that ;)
