Titanfall Achievements


Killed an enemy with AMPed vortex shield deflection on Backwater   

The AMPed Vortex Shield is a Titan Burn Card that modifies the vortex shield behavior to immediately reflect projectiles instead of waiting until the vortex shield is dropped to hurl the projectiles back. You must have this Burn Card in your inventory and in an active slot when you start a match on Backwater.

The easiest approach is to take your Titan and face off with a Spectre or grunt and activate your AMPed Vortex Shield. The enemy should shoot at you and all you have to do is ensure they are reasonably centered on the screen to hit them with the deflected bullets. It can also be easily boosted with a second player.

The achievement will unlock in any game mode where you meet the criteria.

@LanceX good advice, thanks. I wasted a burn card trying to kill pilots and titans. Now I need another one.

It has to be an actual kill. It was annoying me because I doomed like 5 titans with those damn cards and it wasn't unlocking, killed 10 specters and it worked.

Not that hard really.

PSA: You can get the amped vortex card today (October 7th) for 870 credits via the daily deal!

I was able to knock this achievement out real quick before leaving for work. The key is that you cannot let go of th LB button early, and you must deflect the shot back to the same person that fired at yoy. I killed a grunt and two spectres this way and it popped after the match.

Also, be aware that you can only purchase just one of the amped vortex cards via the daily deal, so make it count!

And sorry for the typos above, I hate writing from my phone :/

Achievement unlocks at the end of the match. Not when you get the kill.

Just do this in frontier defence, deflect specifically the spectres that use machine guns. It seems to work better rather than doing it against the rpg spectres.

Ditto #12. Did it twice in one match for nothing.

Frontier defence is by far the best mode to get this in. Spectres will run at you in large groups making it easy to get deflection kills.
