    Tried following the other guide and couldn't get it to unlock.

    I went in to Practice and set instinct meter to full. Press "up" on the right stick to activate, and set the opponent to CPU easy difficulty. When they come to attack you, hit the LB button. It should come up and say counter if you timed it right. If it doesn't or if they hit you, then keep trying. Once I landed the counter, I started mashing the RB button. Doing that got the achievement to pop.

    Ultramarine360Works unless you spend ages being shin hisako which is the wrong character. Make sure you are HISAKO

    The simplest way to get this is by going into Practice mode as Hisako and setting the Instinct Gauge to "Infinite." This allows you to activate Instinct and maintain it's benefits indefinitely.

    While in perma-Instinct, hit your opponent with your HP or MP naginata attacks until you have seen "Counter Hit" appear at least 5 times. Then have a second player attack you (or program the CPU dummy to do this) and use her Vengeance Counter moves (PPP or KKK) to counter the attacks at least 5 times.

    I performed these moves while using Instinct during regular matches, but the achievement only triggered for me when all 10 hits/counters were done IN THE SAME ACTIVATION.

    THE Mr FillA better explanation for those still needing this - this is easier with a second controller (all controls as default):

    Go into Practice mode and set the Instinct to infinite, then press cn_RB+cn_RT or up on right stick, walk towards the opponent & hit cn_RB 5+ times, as long as "Counter Hit" appears on-screen, this will count

    Presuming you have a second controller, go into the Practice menu settings "Dummy Options" and change Action to be "Human"
    Holding on controller in one hand and the other controller in the other, hit cn_RB on the 2nd player & cn_LB a fraction of a second later on the 1st player, this should make Hisako counter the hit and hit with a hard attack, "Counter Hit" should appear on-screen - do this 5 times and the achievement is yours

    If you DON'T have a second controller, set Action as "Record", then hit cn_B to get back to the session, you are now in control of the second player, hit cn_RB several times, with a few seconds between them
    Then go back to the settings & to "Dummy Options" and change Action to "Playback", and go back to the game
    Now you have to counter against the recorded hits, every time it works "Counter Hit" will appear on-screen, and after 5 you should get the achievement

    There, hope that helps someone

    I just was not getting it with either solution. If other people were, more power to them. I tried for 20 minutes.

    I saw the comment posted by THE Mr Fill in one of the solutions. I was going mad with this before I saw that. Since I hadn't looked at the comments before, I never noticed it, and since he didn't post a solution, I'm doing this for others who are frustrated like me. All credit to him.

    Get 2 controllers and go into Practice mode. You need to counter a few times, so a second one works really well. If you don't have a second, THE Mr Fill noted that you can use Record from the Practice menu, but I couldn't get that to work either. I used a 2nd.

    Set Instinct and Shadow to Infinite. Hit cn_RB on the 2nd controller, then immediately after press cn_LB on your main. You'll see "Counter Hit" on the screen. Then do it again. And again. Keep doing it a few times.

    It took me only a few times to do it. It might have been because the game registers the entire time as one Instinct activation, so keep that in mind.

    I really hope this helps. KI drives me batty sometimes. Best of luck!

    SashamorningI have no clue, but it's definitely annoying.

    zDrUnKeNMoNkEyzWorked but should add that this is half of what to do for achievement

    DubstepEdgelordI didn't even know that it was possible to have a 2nd player in practice mode. This has to be the best solution for this achievement, even though it bugged for me. I reset my game and it popped about 30 seconds after the title screen.
