    To unlock this achievement you first need to unlock the Accelerato Boost then play a game on the Utopia Coliseum using one of the original battle-cars Octane, Zippy, Backfire or Scarab.

    Fastest way to do this is to create an Exhibition Match and select Utopia Coliseum as the Arena and once the game starts hold downcn_RT then press cn_B to boost and this achievement will pop.

    *Item unlocks are random so the Accelerato boost could be one of the first items you unlock or possible one of the last just keep playing games to unlock an item each time.

    *To check if you have unlocked the Accelerato boost check in the garage menu under the Rocket Trails section.

    NedMandingo3rdJust popped this with Octane in Urban Central with Standard boost. No need to unlock Accelerato anymore.

    A BatwomanI think they updated it I think you need Accelerato boost. I've tried so many times.

    Before attempting this achievement both the Accelerato and one of the original battle-cars must be unlocked which are: Octane, Zippy, Scarab and Backfire. These will all have unlocked by playing enough matches.

    Once the car and the accelerato boost trail have been equipped, the match must be set up. This can be done by chance with this set-up however it'd be easier to set the game up yourself.

    Go to Exhibition match and set the map to Utopia Coliseum - as this has been proved to work. You can also remove the mutators and remove bots to make life easier.

    Once this has been set up, simply start the game and boost (cn_RT + cn_B).

    The achievement didn't pop for me until a goal was scored so give it a minute to unlock. If it doesn't, check your car configuration.

    Before you get this achievement you need to unlock the accelerato boost. you also need to play with one of the original battle cars ZIPPY, OCTANE, SCARAB, and the BACKFIRE,

    You also need to play on the arena utopia coliseum to unlock this.

    So the way I did this was I unlocked the accelerato boost the second to last boost that I needed to unlock and I equipped the boost and I went on a online game it was just luck that I was on that track so when I pressed boost cn_B it unlocked for me.

    or there is a easy way to do this so go to exibition match then change the arena to utopia coliseum, you can also remove the bots to make the match easier.

    The accelerato boost could be one of the last or the first things you unlock but it was one of the last for me, so don't hope your going to get it first because this could happen, and remember to check if you have unlocked the accelerato boost in the rocket trails section.
