Hello and welcome to PBreezey's achievement guide for the Overwatch achievement "Can't Touch This"

To get this achievement you have to stop the attacking team from touching the payload (see the big ass truck) for 1 minute.

Step 1: you have to be on a map with the escort objective. There are 6 maps with escorts built in:
1. Dorado
2. Route 66
3. Watchpoint: Gibraltar
4. Hollywood (start as assault, then escort)
5. King's Row (start as assault, then escort)
6. Numbani (start as assault, then escort)

Step 2 is you have to be on Defense. In quick play, the game rotates through maps so that each player (usually) gets to play on both Attack and Defense before moving to the next map. So, hopefully, if you load into a lobby you join on Defense, or alternatively at least join for the first round of a map as an Attacker so that the next round you will switch over to Defense.

Step 3 is you get the achievement. This is really going to depend heavily on your team, and the skill level of your opponents. It's really easy for the enemy to play a character such as Reinhardt, run up and move the payload a few centimeters and reset your 1 minute timer. I recommend using champions such as Bastion, Tjorborn, Widowmaker and Hanzo that are able to pick off enemies from a distance. You could also try Mei to wall your enemies off of the payload, or Lucio to knockback enemies if they get too close. These are just a few recommendations. When I got the achievement I was playing as Bastion, set up as a turret and switched to tank mode for the last little bit of the 1 minute requirement.

TL;DR: this achievement (imo) is really luck of the draw. I feel like everyone will get it eventually when you get in one of those games that is just a complete stomp and the enemy team never advances the payload an inch.

Please comment and let me know how I can improve my solution before downvoting. Good luck and happy hunting!

How do I get unlock Can't Touch This?
To get this achievement, you must first be defending in either Quick Play or Competitive on any of the following maps:
Escort Maps
Watchpoint: Gibraltar
Route 66

Hybrid Maps
King's Row
Once you start an Escort Map or the first objective is taken on a Hybrid Map, the timer for the minute will start. This timer will reset anytime an enemy touched the payload, regardless of whether they moved it or not. Something to note is that "touching the payload" is not talking about a physical touch, rather than being close enough to move the payload.

The easiest place to hold a payload is near a checkpoint. Checkpoints are the point where the payload is the farthest from the enemy spawn, but the closest to your spawn, especially the last checkpoint.

The best abilities to use are ones that can clear and control areas or knockback players such as Mei's Blizzard, Roadhog's Whole Hog, Pharah's Concussive Blast, etc.

At the end of the day, this just boils down to how good or bad your team and the enemy team is, so don't beat yourself up if you can't seem to get this because you will most likely get it when you least expect it.

How do I boost this achievement?
Minimum Required Players: 2 (The more players the better your chances.)
1. Have your friend(s) join your game and then make them join a group. Wait until you and them are on opposing teams. Do NOT be in the group, instead have them join through the social tab or leave the group once you guys are in a game.
2. They can be Mei and constantly trap their allies in their spawn (or just have them do nothing if you don't want to troll other.) Your team should hopefully be able to kill anyone going towards the payload with the other team having a man disadvantage.

Achievements in No Limits?
We're currently looking into whether or not we can allow the achievements to work in No Limits. We'll get back to you on that one.

Considering that No Limits is the old Quick Play, it is not surprising that Blizzard is looking to add achievements to NL. I will try to keep this updated if I see an update, but feel free to comment below if this topic is updated.
