    Much like the evade attacks achievement, you just need to hit an enemy with 20 counter attacks.

    The counter attack has to be purchased in the Trip store first. After that, it is a matter of getting the proper timing.

    Block and then press B at the moment the enemy strikes you. If there is only one enemy left and you are ok on health you should be able to easily rack up a few counters just by playing defensively.

    This should be easily completable in one playthrough.

    Gaius TavarIf you use a mech with a shield the mech won't die as long a it has it's shield so you'll be able to get it with the one enemy.

    You have to purchase the Counter Attack combat upgrade. It's 45,000 tech points. I'd also recommend the Combat Awareness upgrade, purchased for 5,000 tech points.

    Once purchased, press B, right as an enemy hits you to perform a Counter Attack. Getting the timing right can be a little tough, but you should get the hang of it after a few tries. You can do this multiple times on one enemy.

    This is a video showing the counter timing. This is not my video and I do not take credit for it.
