Don't get Cocky achievement..... RIDONKULOUS!!!

Can someone show a video of this achievement. Although, that wont help me, but least I'll know it can be done. I read a post of someone's saying he finished with 73% hull integrity. WHAT! I'm sure it can be done just want to see. This is crazy.

1. event has random scripts eventually you will get an easier one (fewer
big asteroids)

2. turn brightness up on tv/and or game settings (see asteroids earlier)

3. before sitting on gun open airlock door (you will not run out of air)

4. please use search function in future as this has been answered 100 times

hope this helps!

I found it annoying too, just keep trying, eventually I mastered it and did it without taking a hit, (well, ok. One.) Most of the time I realised I screwed up because I was moving my controller too much, and it caused me to move past the asteroids. Move the cannon slowly and firmly, and you should be fine. Use both cannons on big asteroids for Instant Destroy.

i had a lot of difficulty with this achievement. first playthrough (on normal), i barely beat that segment with any shield remaining. it was only on easy, with a lot of luck, that i managed to get it. however, it was one of those achievements that i feel i really earned and finally seeing/hearing the little popup was HUGELY satisfying.

the slug boss cheevo was much, much easier.

Can someone explain me why you should do this?
I am also having much trouble with this one and I can't believe so many people here found it so easy.
Anyways I haven't opened the airlock at any of my tries.
Probably this is what I was missing.

Airlock makes no difference...not sure why that was listed. The most helpful advice I read was don't fret too much about the asteroids that are way out to the left or right and to focus on the ones within your immediate view (when it starts getting heavy at least). It took me about 10-15 tries I'd say...

I think opening the airlock gets rid of the purple gas clouds, which might make it easier to spot the asteroids but I never bothered with it. The best advice I received for this was to focus on the large/fast asteroids and also be aware of the timing. The whole sequence lasts 2 minutes. Hammond will talk twice: once when there's 1 minute remaining and again when there's 30 seconds remaining.

You just have to prioritise on the large and fast asteroids. But, also go for the asteroids which, require the least amount of movement to reach. Apart from the large asteroids, I only ever used the right cannon and I tended to hold it down for a second or two, release and then, hold it down again, this helped avoid overheating. Also, I found I often got caught out when there were asteroids at opposite extremes (far left and far right) and I tried to get both of them - almost always I'd go for one, be moving to shoot the other but, I'd have some large or fast or group of asteroids appear in the middle before I reached it and this would often throw me off balance so, if you have asteroids at opposite extremes just, go for the fastest or biggest. You have to let some slip through. You just have to maintain focus but, not get flustered.

I thought this was going to be difficult but I got it on my second try ever. I let some go by the get a larger group on the other side of the screen since it can take a few hits before it goes below 50.

i thought this achievement was hard when i got it, took me AGES to get it done on my first play through. on my second play through on impossible i did it again without even trying.

must have got a very easy random pattern

I beat this on easy though it was a crapshoot. As anyone will tell you, its random and not based on difficulty. Its still ridiculously hard yet ultimately very satisfying.

Sure, why not

I tried it a LOT of times on my first playthrough, seriously a LOT ...in the end I got it on my insane difficulty run without even trying.. didn't even notice until the achievement popped up.. was weird.

I've just done it, about 6 months ago when I first tried to do it I got very frustrated and lost the plot. Today I did it on my 5th try, I just kept calm and came very close on the first 4 tries, when I eventually did it I had 77% left.

It baffles me why some are having SO much trouble with this achievement. I understand if it takes you a handful of tries, I did it on my 3rd try personally...but 30, 40 tries? I don't mean to insult anyone, but, if you can't get it in that many tries, you either need to go play something else or you just suck at that part of this game, it is not THAT hard. After reading threads about this I thought I'd be stuck on this for hours, I barely failed on my first two tries and nailed it on my third, had about 70 percent left, it makes me wonder about some who have tried it before...

I thought it would be a lot harder than it was. At first it sucks because of the controls, but once you sit down to earn the acheive I found each wave easier and easier until I beat it with over 70 % hull integrity.

I'm not one of those people who's going to say "it's easy" about something that clearly isn't just because I did it, but with patience it should be managable.

wow - finally done it!!took me about 30 attempts. I came on here and read some tips.

The best tip for me on here, was the always fire with both triggers (don't hold down.) A double burst is more likely to hit the asteroid if you are slightly off with aiming, and sometimes takesout an asteroid floating nearby the one you want too.

The scripted event i had was slightly easier, I guess, but not overly so. none of them seemed easy at all, although one I had was a massive meteroite blitz!!

I'm glad I finally got this. Now I only need to beat the game on hard! Just keep trying, whoever doesn't have it still, you'll get it eventually.

Just don't hold down both triggers, fire both like equally and that should help you destroy asteroids earlier.
