Thank you very much for this guide. First time I've tried it, it looks like very impossible achievement to achieve...but this guide has helped me ALOT and I managed to get an achievement.

Thank you so much for easy-to-follow steps guide, as well FroZeNSouL's skills.

What's great thing is I just got back to Xbox 360 achievements world after few months of not bothering to play my 360, and I managed to get this achievement.

Only about 12 achievements to go on Orange Box (although I don't think I'll get three of them :P)

Lol, I did this on Normal without switching to Easy! I guess I didn't think about switching it. Still,I decided to save often and use my car to ram and run over those Hunters. I hated that very fast strider that attempted and blowing up that little lodge building. Still,after many tries,I overcame the dreaded Striders!

This guide is the BEST! The timing and location of the Striders was spot on. It took me a little while but I was finally able to nail this one down. Thank you SO MUCH for helping get the achievement I never thought I could do!

You and me both. I got frustrated and gave up on it for now. I kept getting into spots where a Strider would get ahead of me & make it to a house or the silo and blow them up as soon as I came onto the screen. Maybe I'll try again... in a few months.

Thankyou so much for this. I managed to do the whole sequence in just about exactly an hour. Once you take care of those 3 that destroy the buildings it isn't too bad.

Definitely. I was getting quite frustrated. But once the last "fast" strider was done, it was cake.

[EDIT] I take that back, I just got it out of luck. It wasn't as hard as I thought. It's all about speediness, marksmanship, and johnny-on-the-spotedness (if that's even a word). You've just got to focus on those three 'fast runners' and then move to the rest. Use those logs as well as your car as weapons against those pesky Hunters. If you can, kill those hunters first to give you a clear shot against the striders. After you kill a 'fast running' strider save right afterwards!

Now it's time for me to move on to Aperture Science, which is without-a-doubt much more difficult (for me).

I got it on first try. Not the striders themselves, but I kept reloading a save, but I got to know the area REALLY well, so with that knowlege, I just used faster and quicker routes to get to the faster striders and it worked. The funny thing was, the whole time, I forgot to drop of Lil' Bastard (the gnome) in the rocket and was carrying him with me the entire fight.

Great guide. Got it, THANKS.

Here are my highlights:

1. Play on EASY (I've compared it to normal and it helps significantly)
2. Let Strider 1 come close to the sawmill so you can quickly take out nr. 2 without driving too much
3. Kill the Hunters as often as the guide suggests. This also helps and takes away some of the stress
4. I consider nr. 6 to be the hardest, after you finish 8 and get the break things should be easier

Whoa thanks a lot Steve50013. I haven't played this game since it came out and only recently tried going back to unlock some achievements. I was planning on just skipping this one but I'll give it a shot now since your guide seems pretty in depth. Wish me luck lol

**EDIT** I just beat this thing on my first try! Your guide plus the tips other people posted here REALLY helped a lot. After the three fast striders, it was super easy! Thanks again!

i agree that #2 is a pain in the ass. i haven't killed anymore after that(i had to go to work and i haven't gotten back to this yet). would you or anyone here say that it's the only one that fires it's lazr right after it appears? i killed it out of pure luck from the opposite side of the saw mill and that bomb must've bee carried by angels or something. i got after a few tries because i saved right after i blew the first one and i really don't know if i can deal with more crap like that.

You might have to restart a couple saves away for the latter because you can get stuck in a loop where no matter how you approach him he blows up the building as soon as you get there. As long as you know you have to take him out before the one that is on the other side near the water tower you should be OK.

But neither one has you worrying about the hunters too much. I pretty much had to kill all the hunters for the other ones. I would think doing this on NORMAL would be near impossible because of the hunters. Rockets, orb left trigger ammo for the alien rifle, and close range double barrel shotguns blasts seem to be the most effective.

I hope this rambling incoherent post helps someone.
Exactly the same here. I followed the guide for the first 2, but then I just went with the flow - though I had to reload previous saves (about 30 secondss to a minute prior ones) to take care of the fast moving Striders, once I knew where they were coming from, over the slower ones.

I should have given myself more credit, in terms of having the skill needed to try it on my own. This guide definitely gave me the confidence to try to get the achievement though. Thanks.

Wow. That was not easy at all. It's those stupid hunters and their ability to blow up your bombs that kept making me reload my saves. Thanks for the guide, helped a ton.

thanks Steve50013 for this superb guide, and thanks to everyone else who added extra tips and slight alternatives.

only just came back to the orange box this month after over a year to finish off the achievements and NEVER thought i'd get this. it nearly finished me off just saving the silo, albeit on Hard, the first time around! (pathetic, i know.)

i was about to say it took me just over 1.5 hours, although i actually started on strider 1 almost 23 days ago! my 360 died (motherboard) and had to go back for a 60 repair, so i have had to wait for this one. but with your guide it was well worth it. thanks again!

This guide is fantastic. After the one minute break for "dropships" I kinda went with my own flow. But unlike other people, I wasn't fusterated one bit. You NEED to save often. Personally, I thought this part of the game was very fun. Kudos to the owner of this guide! Thanks again!
