    Same as with similar achievements, this can be done while in Practice.

    Press Menu to open options
    Change action to CPU
    Press cn_RB
    Scroll down to Instinct Meter and switch to Infinite Refill

    When opponent goes to attack, just press cn_LB to perform Eruption and it should stop the attack. Do it a second time and achievement will unlock.

    Note that I didn't have to perform a combo breaker for the achievement to unlock.

    nightw0lfLike others here, I was unable to obtain this in practice mode, despite numerous attempts. I got it in a versus match against beginner AI. Also, unlike the other characters' instinct achievement, this is two in one *match*, not in one instinct activation. Each time you perform eruption, you drop out of instinct mode and have to re-activate instinct to use eruption again.

    NaberiosIt worked fine in Practice mode for me. Thumbs up.

    TheAnonymityWorked in practice mode. Be sure to set instinct meter to "refill" and not "infinite" and this should work.

    The SCHWARTZ 00I know it's an old guide, but it really should be updated so that it reflects that infinite instinct doesn't work for this, only refill. I tried your way for a few minutes and got nowhere. Soon as I switched to refill like the other guys above me suggested, it popped instantly. Still giving you a +1 though.

    xShoot4WarAmpsxIf you are trying this, Make sure that you are using Eruption when the opponent is doing a Combo, not just on one attack. The opponent needs to land at least one hit. That was a mistake I was making.

    I did this in practice with Dummy set to human. Instinct set to Refill.

    NetechmaI did on practice. set instinct bar to refill instead of infinite. set opponent to record and spammed X and then dash forward a couple times.. changed opponent to playback instead of record. then spammed right stick up and Lb maybe 10 or so times and it seemed to work quickly enough

    GnislewCan confirm that it works in practice with Instinct set to refill. Yummy Baklava should edit his solution.
