Mission 1 - Distress

Play on Recruit to make it easier.

When the hangar bay door opens run over to the left and stand just in front of the barricade some of the Xenos will attack you before jumping over the barricade this may take a couple tries.

The achievement will pop when you walk through the open door.

letsgobulls 24 This achievement IS rather hard to get on your own, even on Recruit difficulty! Only after failing about 20 times and learning the aliens exact patterns did I finally get this one to pop. Make sure to stay outside the barricades, and use the Secondary Fire on the vents. Once the door opens, make a run for it!

liddd I was halfway through defending, I died and then unlocked the achievement while I was dead on the floor.

Scary Superstar Video was a big help. I'd like to add that if you have Ripley's Pulse Rifle, it's much easier: 95 in the clip, secondary explosives and a flamethrower made life much simpler. I think I only had to reload once.

Daggertoes83 yea he makes it look easy. Ive tried about 5 times so far. now i am playing with the bare basics of my guns right now. Upgrading your weapons has to help a little i would think.

WEBHEAD 7 see the gray box just to the left of the dead xeno at 0:50? i stood on it, and guess what.... the xenos can't hurt you while you're standing on it,, lol. a handful of them danced around me the whole time but wouldn't attack just so long as i was standing on that box. from that spot you actually have a great side-view of the whole hangar as well. so since you're untouchable while on the box, you can focus on the xenos that are actually going for the barricade, and then casually shotgun the ones that are paying attention to you.. on the box.. lolol. this little trick got me the achievement first try after several unsuccessful attempts standing infront of the barricade. soldier difficulty. try it. :))

ChungJai I jumped onto the gray box as mentioned by WEBHEAD7 and got rid of the first attack wave. However something interesting afterwards ... no further waves of aliens appeared! I was just standing on that box not daring to move scanning the area as the commentary continued in the background. When the big doors opened I ran through and the achievement popped. So I experienced one of those nice moments where a glitch was beneficial towards my getting a cheevo. Unfortunately I don't think standing on the gray box caused the glitch ... I was just lucky.

SixtyFootMonkey WEBHEAD 7's tip worked for me too. Although the aliens could still hurt me during the first wave, only one alien spawned during the second wave and the achievement popped while I was still standing on the box.

StArWaRs SC87 Thank you WEBHEAD 7! After many unsuccessful attempts I looked here for help and found your comment. Worked first try! And I only had to kill 4 aliens.
