[X4 Timelines] Rise Against the Machines - related achievement question

Post by Astreas »

Hello everyone! Looks like I need some help here.  What should I done here to get the Window of Opportunity achievement?

The description of the achievement is quite simple: In Rise Against the Machines, destroy a capital ship while it is disabled (requires the Timelines expansion).

I've got 5* at this scenario already, but still can't find out what "disabled" means here.

Thanks in advance!

I always thought it meant that you had to destroy all the engines and all the turrets on a ship. But since I did that on an Xenon I in that mission and still didn't get the achievement, I was probably wrong.

I got it without even intending to.

I used the Ares torpedo bombers. Their wide area of effect damage destroys a lot of subsystems. I'm fairly sure it's in relation to the Engines only. Use the bombers to target all the capital ships. The K should be the easiest one to get the achievement from.

I'm pretty sure that I's engines was destroyed as well as all L turrets at the moment this thing died on my last try. The only operational modules was shields and M turrets. But I'll try again with K's or H, thanks!

Well, I have tried a few times now. Fully cleared K and I - no modules at all. I also tried H without engines and Deka without both engines and shields. No luck so far. It looks like it's not about modules, unfortunately...

Allegedly if you kill the CPU ship the other xenon ships in the area are disabled for a short time.

Oh! Thank you! I was able to get the achievement by destroying the closest K right after bringing down the Deka. It wasn't that intuitive, for sure.

If you knew what you had to do, it was pretty easy. :roll:
