    Note: All of the Champions Bundle Achievements are "buggy." They are generally slow to unlock and/or take multiple attempts before unlocking. Follow the descriptions of the achievements and/or instructions and they will unlock.


    Step 1: Buy Champions Bundle. Note: The perks have been unlocked and buying Champions Bundle is no longer necessary.
    Step 2: Equip Resistor.
    Step 3: Equip Recharge.
    Step 4: Equip Plasma Pistol
    Step 5: Spawn into game.
    Step 6: Look straight down and aim at foot.
    Step 7: Press Y to swap to Plasma Pistol.
    Step 8: Hold RTrigger to overcharge Plasma Pistol.
    Step 9: Release RTrigger to fire overcharged bolt at your foot.
    Steps 10-15: Quickly repeat Steps 8 through 9 three more times to fire a total of four Overcharged Plasma Pistol shots at your foot and to drain the Plasma Pistol.
    Step 16: Collect achievement.

    Alternate options exist in using a combination of PP overcharges, Frags and/or Pulse Grenades.

    Credit goes to Tyrant and his LASO runs in Halo Reach.

    The person going for the achievement MUST have
    resistor and recharge on there loudout.

    The person helping them with the acheivement should have a plasma pistol.
    now for how to do the achievement while in game.

    1 person pull out Plasma Pistol
    charge it up
    release the charged shot on enemy that is obtaining achievement
    immediately shoot them straight after the charge shot with 4 bullets from the plasma pistol.

    Let their shield recharge and the achievement should unlock.

    (At the moment) You NEED to buy the whole Champion's Bundle for this achievement. That is the only way to unlock the Resistor. Don't waste your money by only buying the Bullseye Pack like I did

    As of October 9th 2015. I gravemind do not have the DLC but for this i just pop this achievement CRAZY !!!. you must drain your plasma pistol at your foot until it's completely empty. Charge it up each time and shoot it at your foot until your plasma pistol is completely empty you must charge it up 3 or 4 times. it worked for me. hope so for anyone else..

    The other guides work perfectly fine, except for one thing that no one specifies.

    Because of what the Resistor perk is, you must be moving while you're shooting the ground underneath you with a Plasma Pistol.

    So, follow the other guides for what you need Loadout-wise, then:
    Spawn in with the proper loadout
    Look straight down
    Start walking forward
    Hold in RT to Overcharge your Plasma Pistol into your feet 4 times
    Keep walking until your shields recharge
