BUBBLE MAN is the corresponding badge.

Arcade Master Arcade Master
Complete the campaign at arcade difficulty

See “Panzerotto Prophet” for more information on the difficulty related achievements.

Bomb the Bass Bomb the Bass
Kill 1000 enemies with your special weapons

Every ship has its SPECIAL WEAPON. You need to kill 1000 enemies with them, not with regular bullets.
It can be easily grinded on the far right side of level “4 Unfinished Business” (you need to go past the huge ship STEEL SKULL). Wait for bombs and small enemies to appear and shoot them all with “S-104 Dart”‘s SPECIAL WEAPON.
MEGABLAST is the corresponding badge.

Diehard I Diehard I
Survive 5 minutes in survival mode

See “Diehard III” for more information.

Diehard II Diehard II
Survive 10 minutes in survival mode

See “Diehard III” for more information.

Diehard III Diehard III
Survive 15 minutes in survival mode

This one can be easily sacked on the survival level “3 The Lighthouse”. Clear almost all of the first wave, clear the PIRATE SHIP of all its gun parts, but leave it alive (don’t damage its main part). Then you can proceed with going back and forth through the map only having to dodge the mines that appear (and, occasionally, the PIRATE SHIP) for 15 minutes…

Dodge This! Dodge This!
Play 5 minutes without getting hit

You could do this by playing the level “1 Pilot” very carefully (and making sure not to finish it before 5 minutes run out), but it should also be possible to combine it with survival mode level “3 The Lighthouse”.
NIMBLE is the corresponding badge.

…can be easily achieved by playing the last level of the campaign “6 Storm” and staying at the beginning of the level for 5 minutes. Enemies will not attack nor move toward the player if the player stays at the start of that level.

See “Triple Facepalm” for the best strategy on getting killed quickly.

Triple Facepalm Triple Facepalm
Die in less than 5 seconds

Start level “1 Pilot” on difficulty 4 Pure” with “S-116 Wasp” and go right into a mine immediately…
Of course, these conditions aren’t obligatory. It’s just what I did.

Flawless Flawless
Complete a campaign level without getting hit or sufferig damage

For this, obviously, a ship with good armor is pointless. Ships with good firepower (“S-116 Wasp”, “S-104 Dart”) will let you get rid of enemies quicker, giving them less chances of harming you. The level “1 Pilot” seems best for doing this achievement.

Action Hero I Action Hero I
Fire 5000 bullets

Pretty self explanitory. See “Action Hero III” for more.

Action Hero II Action Hero II
Fire 20000 bullets

Pretty self explanitory. See “Action Hero III” for more.

Action Hero III Action Hero III
Fire 100000 bullets

Keep playing the game, keep shooting. This will obviously come over time and if you shoot a lot it shouldnt cause you too much heartache. 
GUNNER is the corresponding badge.

Heavy Duty Heavy Duty
Complete the campaign with the Mule

To get this achievement you only need to complete the last level “6 The Storm”!
Completing the last level on difficulty “1 Tourist” is easy with a good ship. “S-185 Mule”, however, is severely underpowered, so you will need a lot of patience in the final part…

Insect Man Insect Man

Death Dealer II Death Dealer II
Kill 1000 enemies

Get the defined number of kills. See “Death Dealer III” for more information if needed.

Death Dealer III Death Dealer III
Kill 10000 enemies

Keep playing the game, keep killing enemies. Getting kills is something you will need to do a lot of, so this will build up quite easily over time and if needed you can do a little grinding to get the count up a bit higher.
KILLER is the corresponding badge.

El Satanico I El Satanico I
Kill 100 enemies in melee combat

See “El Satanico III” for more information

El Satanico II El Satanico II

You need to hit enemy ships with your ship. That deals a lot of damage to the ship, unless you’re covered by a SHIELD.
LUCHA LIBRE is the corresponding badge.

Activate any filter in the main menu, i.e., GFX must not be Modern, and complete a campaign level.

OmNomNom III OmNomNom III
Pick up 500 powerups

Keep playing the game, keep getting powerups. This will also come over time and isnt something you will need to spend much effort trying to grind until you are close to having collected all of the other achievements.
POWERHOUSE is the corresponding badge.

Panzerotto Prophet Panzerotto Prophet
Complete the campaign at “pure” difficulty

To get these achievements you only need to complete the last level “6 The Storm”!
Completing it on difficulty 4 Pure” is still very tough, but there is this strategy:
Use “S-104 Dart”. Its speed will let you pass the groups of 3 ships that appear on your way without any trouble (with slower ships you can’t pass them before they “materialize” and are likely to crash). So yes, just dash on HYPERSPEED for most of the level, slowing down only when you need to surpass some difficult obstacle. When you’re almost at the end, you must slow down and clear all the enemies, especially cannons. Proceed to go through the spinning gates. The first one must be passed carefully as usual, the 2nd and 3rd ones are possible to clear of cannons completely, so I like doing that.

Space Turtle I Space Turtle I
Get hit 10 times without dying

See “Space Turtle III” for more information.

Space Turtle II Space Turtle II
Get hit 15 times without dying

See “Space Turtle III” for more information.

Space Turtle III Space Turtle III
Get hit 20 times without dying

Let enemy bullets hit you, but not too many. Powerups, especially REPAIR, replenish health, letting you “eat” more bullets without dying. 
DIE HARD is the corresponding badge.

2 Ice Canyon”
You don’t need to hurry too much, give it a few tries to see your pace. I’m not sure if you even need to kill that CYCLOPS on the right.
4 Pure” difficulty can boost your points greatly while changing almost nothing in regard to difficulty. I recommend “S-116 Wasp” here (yes, it’s not the fastest, but isn’t that better?)
