    I unlocked this during a Manhunt Match when I was the prey. I threw the Booby Trap at the Chase Breaker (the glowing lift with the green flag), ran up it, and waited for my pursuer to follow after me. He ran to it, blew up and the achievement unlocked.

    From what I've heard, it doesn't unlock in Private Matches. Also, you need to be at level 26 to unlock Booby Trap. I would recommend on the following maps.

    Tampa Bay
    La Havana
    Saba Island
    Santa Lucia

    As the other two maps do not have Chase Breakers. Throw the Booby Trap, let your partner hit the lift and boom, achievement pops.

    Tears 0f WolvesJust want to repeat what Rossticus said: if you complete the requirements once and the achievement doesn’t pop, delete the Blackbeard MP pack and redownload it. I had trouble today and Rossticus’ solution worked perfectly.

    For this achievement, you need to kill someone with a booby trap on an elevator (the things with green flags that pull you up to a roof when you jump on them)

    To do this, have a loadout with booby trap, and cast it on an elevator before it is used by an enemy character. It will take 5sec or so for it to fully 'deploy', after which you will see an icon identical to the ability hovering over the elevator. This trap will remain until you die or someone else places a trap on the elevator.

    Unfortunately, this must be completed in a public match. I tried multiple times in private matches and could never get it to unlock, but got it on my first successful trap in a public match. Once an enemy jumps on it and dies to the explosion, it will pop. I got it on a Domination match, but others have reported popping it on Wanted, Manhunt etc, so as long as an elevator is present, any mode should work.

    I struggled with getting this ach and I finally found something that worked for me on both the 360 and the One.

    First, make sure you have unlocked, purchased, and set Booby Trap in your active loadout.

    This ach did not pop in a private match, so then go to a public match.

    I found that the relic matches worked best. Find a lift closest to the relic you are defending and booby trap it. Stay in the white area, defend, hide, whatever, as if you die your trap will disappear. If you get stunned while defending, your trap will remain active. Once the trap is active, you can watch your cooldown and place another if you like.

    On the 360 it took 2 matches before someone used it and on the One it took 4.

    dropK1CK ninJAThis was clutch. I got it first time on Tampa. Just located the enemy's lift and booby trapped it. As soon as it was set someone used it. Great hint! Also your clip is gone.

    PhatDaemienThanks, let me see if I can figure out why the clip is gone.
