Mission 7: Do not destroy any Power Node  

Best way to do this is don't move your units, just keep Mach Blasting the Scarab until it falls, this method can only be done on easy.

Any advice on how to beat this?

I recomend you do this on easy, you need to build up your base with Supply pads and a field armoury to get up to the 600 supplies needed for your MAC blast and to use the field armoury to increase the power of your MAC blast, and just attack with your MAC blast while your team stays behind to protect your base

@TheJackal204 You can't upgrade your mac blast on this mission, however this is the correct way to complete the achievement.

The legendary walk-through (thx to Bubba Brad) describes how to get the Scarab
to fire exclusively at a squad of marines garrisoned in the sniper tower just
north of your base.

I tried this but, the Scarab kept on firing normally. Has anyone had any luck
getting the Scarab to focus on the garrisoned marine squad?

@sillyjordo if you want the scarab tofireat your garrisoned marines first you have to upgrade them to new blood then garrison them (the scarab might look away but that will only be for 1-5 seconds only more if something goes wrong)

It does not take at long as everyone says... Mac Blast him as often as you can, but also build up Cobras and send 2-3 at a time one the left side of the Wall towards the Scarab past the Power Nodes. This will make it much faster

Apparently there is a technique where you can put Sergent Forge just beneath or to the side of the Scarab and will keep attacking without getting hurt, haven't tested it so it I'm not certain.

I keep having the problem of the scarab having enough of my crap about 15 minutes into the mission and he just spams lasers at the wall until my base gets cooked. That's pretty annoying. Granted that was on heroic so maybe I will try easy to farm this one.

Okay, so I haven't tried this but I noticed while I played the mission on normal for the first time, after all updates, the scarab seemed to only shoot at marines garrisoned in the sniper tower to the left of him, my right if you look at him.

#8 that does work, there is a blind spot right beside the scarab, I kept pelting it with mac blasts and armies of warthogs, but I only used the hogs cause I lov
e those things lol

for some reason while doing this i had a marine attacking the scarab and was getting hit by it but took no damage. Why's that?

I couldnt do the Forge glitch but found something better. I sent my Cobras at it in packs but as soon as they reached the Scarab, i set them to their Y mode, so that grip the floor and shoot. For some reason the scarab wouldn't kill the transformed Cobras. I thought it would be difficult but when that happened i just sat and relaxed and ........ Bleep Bloop!

I did exactly as the guide said, and I still didn't get the achievement after doing it 5 times. Is the achievement glitched?
