Counters are pretty crap in this game and I dint use them at all after I got the achievement. There's really no tips other than what the videos show and games tells you how to get them.

Sometimes it works, others you may be a little off on timing and it wont. Just wait until the Mech attack and intially hits the shield and press X. Its a bit of luck at the end of the day.

Nozza is right, once you get the achievement out of the way do not rely on counters because evading and blocking is so much more effective. It's a good thing you only need 20 of these things because I found the counter works when it feels like it, or maybe I sucked at it.

The countering system in this game can be a bit tricky, and does require good timing. I've found it's much easier to counter when you wait for a mech's last hit. (Like smaller mechs have 3-hit combos and I think the bigger mechs have 5-hit combos.) Whenever I would try and counter an enemies first or second attack, my shield would just drop and I would take damage. For whatever reason, if I wait for the last hit of the combo, I can counter almost every time.

The counters threw me off until I read the description.

You have to counter after they hit your shield, if you try to interrupt-counter you will get hit.

The evade move is better but the if you can counter them you will stun them for a second or two.
