Titanfall Achievements

Vortex Volley

Caught a projectile shot from a vortex with your own vortex  

The vortex is a Titan Tactical Ability that lets you catch and then hurl back projectiles shot at you by an opponent. To unlock this achievement you will need to be in a position where an enemy has the vortex equipped and active. Shoot at them with any projectile weapon and then activate your vortex shield. If the enemy shoots your projectiles back at you and your vortex shield intercepts them, the achievement will unlock.

All of the preset Titans have the Vortex Shield equipped, so this achievement can be earned very early in the game if desired and circumstances are met.

Boosting Method:
Start a two-player Last Titan Standing game where both players have the Vortex Shield and the XO-16 Chaingun equipped on their Titan. Face each other while player one activates their Vortex Shield via holding and player two fires at them using . This achievement only requires one bullet to be recaptured, so after a short burst player two should activate their own Vortex Shield, after which player one needs to release to hurl the captured projectiles back at the original Titan.

Non-Boosting Method:
This will likely be easiest in Frontier Defense due to the number of Titans that use the Vortex Shield in that game mode. Ensure that your Titan has the Vortex Shield as the tactical ability and any primary weapon other than the Arc Cannon. The XO-16 Chaingun or the 40MM Cannon are likely the easiest to accomplish this with. Once you have a Titan active in the game, start hunting enemy Titans. You are more likely to have them hurl projectiles back at you if you are close to them, so get in front of their path and start shooting. Once a Titan activates their Vortex Shield and captures some of your projectiles, activate yours and wait.

The achievement unlocks in-game shortly after the requirements have been met.

Easy to get. It is like playing catch. Ensure that your Titan has the vortex field enabled and then seek out an opponent who is likewise prepared. Open fire with a chain gun at that opponent and, with luck, that Titan will collect the shells and toss it back at you. Be sure your vortex is enabled when the shells return and the achievement will pop.
