    A simple achievement, requiring a vehicle to smash into you while you're in armour lock. The vehicle must be going quick enough for it to explode by hitting you.

    The easiest way to do this is by going into Big Team Battle and voting for Elite Slayer on Hemmorage. Elite Slayer is full of crazy vehicle (mostly ghost) action and there is plenty of opportunity to get some armour lock kills. Simply run around the middle-ish of the map and try to get the attention of some vehicles. Hopefully they'll notice you and try to splatter you. Just before they hit you, armour lock and if you're lucky they'll explode. 10 seconds later (or so..) your achievement should pop!

    It's as simple as this:

    Dacius DeciumI just got this achievement playing team slayer and I did this against other players with NO vehicles.

    Dacius DeciumTo be more specific: use your armor lock ability until you max it out against a player that has no shields and very low health AND he is right next to you... he will die. Once you use the armor lock ability until it's maxed out, it will send an EMP shock-wave that will drain the enemy's shields and deal considerable damage against the players' health. If the enemy player's health is already low when you use the armor lock they will most likely die for sure. This takes a couple of tries but it works.

    The easiest way to get this is play Rumble Pit Slayer and choose a map where you can fall off the map. Asylum works well for this. You can do this with a friend and sign in guests to fill the lobby or just have 8 players. The person going for the achievement meets a player at the edge of the map. Make sure the other player is right on the edge, then armor lock and the burst should push the other player to their death. It still counts as a kill and should net the achievement.

    EthigyJust to add to this solution: if the initial blast of the armor lock doesn’t knock them off the edge, you can then simply push them off once they’ve been damaged. Still counts.

    Great solution. Saved us a lot of hassle. +1
