I got this on level 2.1.

The only really tricky part is at the very end. Stand on the rightmost part of the final platform, Jump UP+RIGHT and boost further right to avoid the amber and reach the end.
kellydeeThank you for this!
Also, I hit a coin on the part described, then died to restart at check point, and still got the achievement.

Bomb Jack DKYes, thanks, kellydee. Important info as you won't have to restart the whole level. I did the same (several attempts) :-)

CougarI can't seem to get this darn thing. I hit that last Amber every single time regardless if I am teetering off the final ledge or standing upright. Sooo frustrating..This is not easy at all. I'm giving up.

skylinesendCrazyCougar, The timing is tricky. You need to press right and jump, then a split second later boost. It took me about 10 tries.

HavfruenArildI also think that killing enemies negates the achievement as well seen as you get an amber for killing them. On my first attempt I collected no ambers but killed a few enemies, no achievement. On my second attempt I killed no one and collected nothing, achievement popped.

DVDiano360Worked like a charm, had to try it 3-4 times but once I got the timing right it was easy. Nice solution.

AgentZachMorganI found it easier to jump up between the last 2 ambers on the upper platform then boost forward, it's a tight fit but a hell of a lot easier than trying to do that awkward diagonal jump.

Epsilon FactorAfter failing for a half hour, I decided to try AgentZachMorgan's suggestion and simply line up a straight jump between the two rightmost ambers and this worked on the second try! I didn't even use boost, just a clean jump up and over the rightmost amber. The trick is to find the exact center between the ambers so that when you jump you don't hit either of them.

Kovy88Cleared on first try when you just jump between the 2 ambers at the end.

planting42Tried the straight jump. Caught an amber every time. Finally did it with the diagonal jump. I hit cn_Acn_rightcn_X all together.

o Heres Jonny oWhat planting said above, got it first time. Other methods would not work I couldn't get the timing.
