    I have a world saved that will help a lot with this. It is a world originally made by Davehx for the Zombie Doctor and other achievements. I have crafted a fire resistance potion you can use, which could help you survive longer.

    When you load up the world, you will be in the nether, and there will be a Ghast immediately in front of you. Just hit the fireballs back with your Diamond Sword, and if you hit it, you will get the achievement. If anything goes wrong, just re-import the world to try again.

    This is unlocked in the exact same way as in the other editions of Minecraft, except Ghasts seem to spawn much less frequently in the Windows 10 version. Because of this, you'll have to spend a good amount of time exploring until you find one (remember to mark where you've been with torches, glowstone, etc. to avoid getting lost).

    Once you have entered the nether and have found a Ghast, simply wait for it to shoot a fireball at you, then left click your mouse to deflect it with your sword back right as it's about to hit you. The Ghast should die in one hit, granting you the achievement.

    Panthera oncaI just joined my son's world on his iPad and found a Ghast within 5 minutes of being in the Nether. I just started killing Zombie Pigmen and a Ghast spawned.

    Dream FiendThis achievement will not unlock for me :/
    Killed over 5 ghasts all from sending fireballs back at them in my world and my girlfriends world never loaded in creative or anything. Annoying thing is that it did unlock for her when we were trying.

    On a side note we both felt that putting the difficulty slider over to hard (all the way right) made ghasts spawn more frequently, a couple times we had one spawn seconds after the other died, may be worth mentioning.

    BulletLukey has made an awesome world for this. You can join our realm (as long as it still runs) or download the world yourself.

    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***

    In this world, simply go to the respective area. Simply interact with the button to spawn a ghast, then hit the fireball back by timing it to hit it at the correct moment.
