    To surf a Comet car you need to stand on the roof and wait until you see the surf button pop up cn_Y. Now you need to balance as long as it takes for the comet to destroy itself.

    Now the hard part is to get on one before it goes crazy and drives away. The easiest way i found is to walk into oncoming traffic and make the comet stop directly in front of you. Tap the jump button, but don't jump forward because the car will start driving most of the time and you will miss it.

    liner bronsonYeah, definitely unpredictable what's going to happen when you get on the car. I would reiterate the point made about trying to get this before getting the upgrade that makes husks fight for you. Made it much harder for me than it should have been...

    InterracialThis one is a bit tricky due to the fact that you never know what's going to happen. The AI is too random in this game. If your like me and dont have any luck with this, just follow the TA guides and dont stress, it will pop eventually.

    Solo Method:
    First, you will need to find a Comet which is a small white hatchback. To do so, I recommend running laps on the highway, or finding one in the streets, although it doesn't spawn very often. Once you do, stand in front of it to make it stop, then jump upwards and you should land on top of it. Once you land on top of it, it will begin to move and you will get a "Car surfing" prompt one your screen which you should accept. You will now need to balance your character as long as possible until the car hopefully explodes. There is no way to make this more likely, so there is a small luck factor in getting the car to explode.

    Co-op Method:
    Have two people run around the map together until they find a Comet. One of the players should quickly hijack it, and the other player will jump on the roof. Once this is set-up, the driver will begin to drive and the player on top will get a "Car surfing" prompt which they should accept. Once that happens, the driver should look for a small lava pit or damage the car by hitting things for it to explode. After this is successful, trade roles for both people to get it.

    The Comet is a tiny white car that constantly explodes for no freaking reason at all.

    You need to surf on top of comet until it explodes. Surfing is when you stand on a moving vehicle and press Y to enter a Tony Hawk style balancing system. You need to balance on the Comet until it explodes.

    I found using a co-op partner and trading over driving/surfing makes the achievement loads easier.

    It doesn't seem to explode on it's on own when a co-op player is surfing on the vehicle so I drove into the lava to force an explosion.
