    To do a perfect lightsaber deflection, first, you must obviously be using a character that uses lightsabers, and second, need to tap X as a blaster bolt is traveling towards your character. If done right, the blaster bolt should be deflected straight back at the person who fired it. The timing on the press of X is very generous. Usually after any point that the bolt was fired you can press it and it will deflect. The only exception is when the bolt was fired at extreme ranges.
    Rinse and repeat 199 more times and the achievement is yours.

    Unlike what some others have suggested, this is ability does not require the use of the left stick at all.

    Holding X does not produce a perfect deflection, and therefore doesn't count to the achievement, though it does at least deflect the bolt to the side.

    One of the red bricks is perfect deflection all the time so you just have hold X and it will do perfectly every time. Then all you have to do is a find a point in one of the levels where there is an infinite supply of enemies, for example any that require you to kill droid commanders (the ones with walkie talkies), one of the death star missions and the beach of kashyyyk, then just stand there holding X till it pops.

    gazhibsHave you got the red brick on? Not sure if that would help or block.

    And it's the tapping X and it travelling back to the droid that shot and hitting them, not ricocheting off randomly

    The achievment is easiest done in Episode II, when you fight Jango Fett with the Slave 1 in the background. After you hit Jango a few times, he will start to fly around with his Jetpack, and the Slave 1 will start shooting at you. Just stand still and hold X, the ship will continue to shoot at you at an extremely fast pace, so you'll get the achievment in no time. Also, if you've played up to that point, you should already have a good amount of deflected shots already, so it's perfect for just getting the last of them in a few seconds.

    Multip1eSarcasmMake sure if you use the Red Bricks for this, that Deflect Bolts is OFF, and Perfect Deflects is ON. Deflect bolts brick does it for you, and these don't count towards the achievement
