    The original solution by ELITISM is great if you attempt to get this on a "lower" level.

    EDIT 2 Apparently you can get this as low as level 5. Even though WithTheDawn managed to get it at this level i wouldn't plan on getting it so early on. I would never suggest not to try for blazing speed but i still would not recommend constantly trying to get it this early by letting your timer run out. It is extremely frustrating when the game decides to help you out and give you a ton of points and thrust you into the next level.

    I had almost no luck with 6 for the same reason but at this point you can let your timer run down to about 1/4th or 1/5th remaining. If you let it get any lower chances are you are going to run out of time between cascades ending and you getting matches. EDIT Callum x360a has confirmed it can be had on this stage. /EDIT

    Level 7 it is highly possible to get this on. Since the timer runs out on your faster you shouldn't have to worry as much about letting the timer run down.

    Level 8 and above. 8 is where i just got this achievement. By the time you get to these levels if you are playing legit*** you should have to get blazing speed just to stay alive. After the first blazing speed i was about 9/10ths of the way to level 9. I waited for blazing speed to run out again. Once it did i focused entirely on staying alive and got it.

    Don't think because you have to move fast this achievement is easy. I spent probably 45 minutes on this run alone. Getting that final push can be a PITA.

    Best of luck!

    Chino SkeletonHey guys, I get it by playing the game with my two index fingers, so here goes my advice, cause gaining Blazing Speed matters on how quick you do match combinations instead of the amount. Therefore do as many and quickly as you can, but only tried those with three matches. Remember two index fingers to make it more quicker but one at a time.

    Gamer In DenialPause game, shoot video with another phone or camera, press play then pause really fast, watch video and pause it at the exact time sceen is showing, find matches starting at top and going to bottom, then have one finger on play and the other on the move your about to make, hit play, make move, pause. Rinse and repeat.

    Shadow KisuragiDid the above, but with Project My Screen and screen capture software. It's important to note that you cannot suspend the game after obtaining the first Blazing Speed, as the game will lose that knowledge and you'll have to do 2 more.

    Also, swiping the gems constantly didn't seem to help now.

    In addition for previous 2 solutions, please let me add another more practical way to get this achievement. For those who are not really good at this game (yes, I admitted I am.), find your brother/sister/wife or friend to play together ! Each of you will be responsible for half of the screen! I just got this achievement with my wife------ If I play by myself I can only barely get Speed + 1600 (even cannot hold this speed for orange bar fill up) ....but when I ask my wife to play together, we reached Speed + 2200 and also finally done this achievement in Level 8 in one sitting----for sure we have to let the orange bar to going down once the 1st blazing speed mode ends.

    This little hint will help keep you alive as you play on the higher action levels, but it helped me particularly with this achievement. When the timer is running low just keep tapping on the screen to move gems even if its not a match, while they move, the timer will not go down.

    For this achievement, go to about level 6 and wait for the timer to get really low and then keep tapping the screen to randomly move gems until you find a few matches, now just get as many matches as you can quickly and you should hit blazing speed as the timer is Nearly full.

    From this point wait for blazing speed to run out and repeat the process. Achievement unlocked!
