    There have been multiple reports of this achievements not working, so don't say I didn't warn you!

    For this achievement, you have to defuse the bomb 5 times in Quick Match or Ranked. I advise you do this in Quick Match.

    For you to be able to get this achievement, you MUST be DEFENDING in the Bomb game mode. It can not be done while playing in Hostage or Secure Area. Pick any operator that your good with. This is also a super annoying achievement to aim for directly, as I did it just by playing the game. For you to make progress for the achievement, you have to let the enemy plant the defuser. After they plant the defuser, your job is to kill everybody else on the enemy team. After that, head over to the defuser that they planted and defuse it.

    In Quick Match, your teammates could be annoying and team kill you while you are planting. Very annoying. However, if your teammate is planting the defuser, you can team kill them and get the defuser for yourself. (Don't say you saw this from me smile)

    *In Ranked matches, the only game mode is Bomb, and the players will likely being playing at a higher level of focus. This means the bomb will be planted more often.

    NOTE: If you want to strictly play Bomb, from the main menu, hit cn_start. Then hit cn_A for Options. Scroll down once and hit cn_A on "Matchmaking preferences". Then turn Hostage and Secure Area off, and leave Bomb on. Hit cn_X to apply

    GuffStuffLooks like this achievement may be bugged. My count is stuck at 2, but i've defused it more then 5 times.

    Bunny BreakfastWell I never had a problem like that, and unfortunately don't know how to fix it. Just make sure you are defusing in Quick Match or Ranked, because Custom Matches and Terrorist Hunt do not count toward the progress. I hope you can get it to work though!
