Ok after playing the arena I can now do this at will, the problem is finding archers, and you can't unlock it in Arena mode.

You need to upgrade the reflect arrows skill at the top left in the training section in the character tab.... and you have to do it twice. The 1st time up upgrade it will allow you to deflect arrows, the 2nd upgrade is the one that allows you to deflect them back.

There are archers early on but to get the skill to level 2 you need to put 4 points into the training section to get the skill.

Wasted points if you ask me but you will have to put 6 into it any way to unlock the other sections like magic and swords etc.

Do it early and wait for you chance, then single out an archer kill any other enemies with him then just hold RT to block and deflect arrows back. If you get too close he will draw a sword so if this happens run away and he will draw his bow again.

Like I say the only hard part is finding an archer as once you do all you need to do is hold RT :( feel free to add locations as you find them.

Edit: Found 2 archers during the end of act 1 : if you side with Ivoreth it's when you board the barge and are then faced with a choice of pursuit or rescue, run straight on and there will be 2 of them up the steps.

Edit: jnsnlssn posted a link to a video in the comments, I believe the location in the video is Act 2 Iorveths Path,Just out side Vergen a main quest will take you past this location.

Found a few more archers, some very minor spoilers just to warn you re: act 3 but nothing too major


Make a save here because you will not be able to get Spellbreaker achievement other wise, this is in act 3 quest "for a higher cause" Iovrveth path, choose to leave philipa and go find triss, when you emerge from the sewers after this there are 3 archers and some other guards. Then reload and help Philipa to continue on for the Spellbreaker cheevo.

Right at the end of the game, again on Iorveths path, you will know it's the end after you have done the quest and you are told someone is waiting for you, and you and Iorveths go to meet them, you will be attacked by Imperial guards , lurking at the back of the pack are the last 2 archers in the game.

Again I will update when I do my Roach playthrough.
