Hello and welcome to PBreezey's achievement guide for the Overwatch achievement "Shot Down"
To get this achievement you have to use D.va's Defense Matrix - which is activated using
- to prevent/block/absorb 1500 damage. Defense Matrix only has a 10 second cooldown SO Tip #1
: Use the Defense Matrix as much as possible and you might just get this achievement through sheer luck. Tip #2
: Block ultimate abilities. One of the best ways to unlock this achievement is to block other player's ultimates. For example, I got this achievement by blocking Reaper's Death Blossom. Other good ones to block would be Roadhog's Whole Hog and Pharah's Barrage. This will not only help you get the achievement, but your team will LOVE you! Tip #3
: Find the enemy Bastion. Let's be honest. Right now, there is a Bastion in every game you play. He is set up in a corner, on a ledge, in a doorway - just camping and mowing people down. Use this to your advantage! Let him pump his bullets into you and boost away laughing.Tip #4
: DON'T SHOOT! While your Defense Matrix is active you are free to move around. However, if you begin to fire your weapon it will end your Defense Matrix early. Use the full time your Defense Matrix can be up, then start returning fire.Tip #5
: Just keep trying. There is no formula to getting this achievement, no sure-fire method that will make it pop. It's all going to be trial and error. You may try blocking Reaper's Death Blossom but not soak up the damage you need to pop the achievement. Then two minutes later you could decide to take a ride on the front of the Payload and easily soak up 1500 damage from everyone shooting at you. Just be patient and keep trying.
