    Pharah's Concussive Blast ability allows her to shoot a small rocket that knocks enemies back, with a cooldown of 12 seconds.

    The best maps to do this on are the neutral objective maps of Nepal, China & Greece, as they are designed to have enemies be knocked off. Just fly up above the battlefield and wait for an enemy to be near an open ledge. Use the blast to push them off and score the achievement.

    Pharah looses a wrist rocket that knocks back any enemies it strikes.

    What does it do?
    Pharah sends a linear projectile that will knock back herself or any enemy that is within 8 meters of its blast.

    How do I earn this achievement?
    The first requirement is a map that allows players to fall to their deaths. This is all of the maps except Hollywood and Temple of Anubis. King's Row is not recommended as it only had two holes near the end.
    With the right map, you need the right hero to knock down. While you can knock down any enemy, some heroes can counter the concussive blast.

    An easy map to do this achievement in is Nepal as the capture base has one whole side where people could fall off. Just aim it right and they should go flying off.

    Ereaser NLLijiang tower also has one objective that's inside a building with a path around. Next to that path there's a cliff where people can fall off.
