I read all the posts on this and watched the you tube vids to no avail. My OCD would not let me past so I tried this.

Turn the brightness up to FULL!

I did 73% first time after doing this and can do it most times now. You can see the effin' rocks from much further...

Give it ago, jeez, nearly made me not like this stunning game.

I'm sorry, but this minigame is just completely botched. It's absurd that:

1. I have to target tiny pixel sized meteors
2. The laser cannon has a glitch where it won't hit the top of the big meteors
3. it overheats?? wtf????
4. half the meteors don't hit you head on they go far off to the sides.
5. the guy claims it will be a minute left and yet it's significantly more? wtf? what kind of game lies to you like that?
6. innocuous looking small asteroids that somehow take more than 3 hits to take out? wtf????

honestly, wtf is this shit? who tested this? i got it after about 7 attempts, but honestly it's like someone with contempt for humanity went out of their way to make this as frustrating as possible.

I agree with Diaxen, personally I'm giving up on this achievement it's just so frustrating. I tried it many times & still can't get it. :mad:

I didn't find too terribly frustrating as I got it on my second try... right at 51% though. The tip that helped me was always shoot the closest ones first. It's easy to get distracted by ones that are closer to the crosshairs and by the time you destroy that one the ones closer to the ship will most likely hit you before you can hit them.

3rd Try... 51%... that shit is hard. I couldn't even beat it the first 2 times. The trick seems to be not to chase the astroids all over the screen. Stay center, with brightness up and two shots at each one.

Got it at last. I've done everything else including going through on Impossible.

I think the advice is turn up the brightness, 2 shots per asteroid to stop the guns overheating and, finally cross your fingers for a slightly easier combination of Asteroids. If you go below 50% just left the asteroids destroy the shield and start again. Got mine at 51% and a huge sigh of relief.

Great game overall.

It was very frustrating - it took me about 10-15 times to load game but I finally got'it. Don't get angry while doing this achivement - try to stay calm (yes, it's very hard) - otherwise You don't hit a single asteroid.

It is the same, it has been said in another topic. This kind of mini-game pisses me off, everytime you try it baby kittens die somewhere in the world...

Only achieve I'm missing.

PISSES ME OFF !!!

Nice, took me a straight hour to get this one...made me late to work.
I will admit this was one of the harder achievements i've gotten.
