Titanfall Achievements

Tree Runner

Be airborne for 500 Meters on Swampland  

This can be done in any game mode, but since you cannot choose the map you will need to wait for Swampland to come up in a rotation and then remember to do so (and survive long enough as well).

You can also start a custom match in Frontier Defense on Swampland and start with or without public players.

This achievement requires that you are airborne for a cumulative 500 meters while on Swampland. It does not have to be in one game or one generation. Jumping, wall-running, being airborne from Titan ejecting, and using the zip lines all contribute to the achievement. It will unlock at the end of the match when you have reached 500 meters.

Is anyone else having trouble with this? I spent the entire game jumping from tree to tree and it didn't unlock.. i had to have wall run for 500 meters... is it cumulative?

Zip line at far end of the map with the yellow pipes. Zip on that and you'll get it

@4 I've tried that... i did it back and forth the whole game and it didn't pop. I signed out and reset my xbox thinking that may be the problem.. trying it again now. I'll do both methods.

Well.. ejected 7 times in one match and ran on the trees for the rest of the time and no achievement... It's bad enough that they add these achievements in late but at least make them achievable and not buggy ...

@5 that's weird. I did it one try and hopped into the air at the last second and then it popped up.

Alright, so I've done some experimenting for the better part of the day, and unfortunately I cannot figure out a solution. The achievement is bugged, there's no question about that as it unlocks for some and not for others. Here's what I've done so far:

1.) Spent a full match dumping between trees
2.) Spent a full match riding the zipline by the yellow pipes repeatedly
3.) Spent a full match combining tree hopping, ziplines, titan ejects, and wall running.

None of this worked today, and neither did it last night. In light of that, I've tried a few more steps:

4.) Uninstall / reinstall the game
5.) Uninstall / reinstall the DLC
6.) Clear the cache by holding the power button, unplugging the Xbox for a few minutes, and booting it back up.

After doing this, I repeated steps

After doing this, I repeated steps 1-3 again and still no luck. Just for curiosity's sake I decided to try one more thing. I signed out and created a new gamertag called "TreeRunnerTEST" (people though I was a Respawn dev and left me alone lol).

Anyway, I loaded the game up with the fresh tag, jumped right into Attrition on Swampland, and just spent the match hopping around like a madman, jumping between two trees for about five minutes, then mixing in some wall running, tree running, titan ejects, and ziplines; basically anything and everything that involved staying airborne.

As soon as the match ended, pop, "Tree Runner" for 30G unlocked. I signed out, signed back into my regular xIx EDGE xIx gamertag, and tried another Swampland Attrition, repeating the same steps that I just did

...and it still won't unlock.

So the bottom line is that it while it works for some, it's simply glitched for others. I can confirm that it doesn't have anything to do with installs or cache because I put all of that through it's paces during my little experiment; it unlocked on my test tag but not my main one.

If you were able to unlock it, good for you. If not, then you're in the same boat as me, holding out hope for a patch before the next batch of maps hit, assuming in case they remove the Expedition playlist and replace it with the new one.

Abbie Heppe (Respawns CM/Voice of Sarah) said they found a bug with this achievement and will be fixing it as soon as they can. She also said that she too was affected:

Yeah this is glitched like a mother )(*&%% I just spent a few matches doing the same thing over and no achievement. Play Swamp again and don't try to go airborne at all for full pops at the end... So cross your fingers and keep trying. I didn't do anything just SUPER delayed popped.

Anyone know when we might get a fix for this achievement? Only one I'm missing from the DLC :/ just to clarify as well- anyone who has gotten it: is it cumulative or do you have to get all 500ms airborne at once?

It's cumulative, and Respawn is currently working on a fix.

Guess it's glitched for me too :( I've tried it all the zip line, titan ejection, and tree running :(

The latest update has patched the glitch for obtaining this achievement. I played one game on swampland rode the zip line by the yellow pipes once and it unlocked at the end of the match.

Like spclblend88 said this achievement is now fixed with the update. Just gotten it at last after riding around on the zip line a few times. Popped after my second Swampland match since the update.

'popped' after a month, after starting the game on the main screen. the time stamp showed the day it unlocked, not the day i actually obtained this achievement. good to see Microsoft and Respawn fix this problem
