Like the shooting achievements in most games, this one is far easier if you crank up the controller sensitivity. I was unable to get it after two tries using the default sensitivity (2), so I turned it up to 8 and hit 74 targets on the first attempt.

I'm currently on my classic run. Is it possible to obtain this achievement during classic playthrough?

I have followed the video guides and only miss few targets but the achievement won't pop up for me.

Ok, it can be done during classic run. As #2 already mentioned increasing the Controller sensitivity helps a lot.

Yep #2 is totally right, I got the achievement first try after cranking up the sensitivity to max. Try that if all else fails.

The sequence is actually split up into checkpoints separated by when you go back to viewing the? cockpit via cutscene. If you don't think you did well enough in a certain section, reload from the last checkpoint before the cutscene ends and do it over. This works particularly well if you're not feeling confident.

Also controller sensitivity, like mentioned above.

I pushed the sensitivity to 1-it popped on the third reload. I saved & exited right at hitting the ground. On reload, it started at the beginning of the run. It popped on the third attempt-I do not think that I hit 70 on the ride down. Popped at the very end.

This was a pain. Not worse than the first game, but it was really hard to both steer and shoot given the slow as hell targeting cursor.

Took me about 7 tries solo. I swear each time I was hitting at least 95% of the targets and no cheevo. I don't know if this helps but on my last try I somewhat took my time putting the gas tanks back in place and re-sealing them. My thinking was that maybe this might give Carver some extra time to shoot some targets down. Achievement popped after I shot 4 more targets on Tau Volantis (the jagged rocks and shit). Good luck.

EASIEST METHOD: Co-Op. Both you and your friend will get it. Carver will be the gunner. The longer you take to repair the air canisters, the more shit you get to shoot. Just fire until you get it then finish the ride.

Changing the sensitivity works. I tried with default sensitivity without success but got the achievement in first attempt when changed sensitivity to 10..

Looking for a co-op partner to boost this with me, my GT is my username.

Got this first try on my classic run, i play with controller sensitivity 5 anyway and it was plently enough. You should get the achievement when you reach the planet, after shooting the first couple of rocks

Cranked the sensitivity up to 5 and literally got it on the last target. There really isn' t much room for error. Took me 4-5 tries.
