    If you want (or need) to do this without the aid of party members you should try to lure someone into hijacking you. First, make sure you have a energy drainer to kill your vehicle's engine. Next, it would be best to use a ghost (more people try to hijack that than a warthog) and hide in a spot that is relatively small so the enemy can't just run away after taking your vehicle. (I waited in the dome on High Ground). When the enemy jumps on your vehicle immediately press X and drop the energy drainer to kill the engines. Walk back up to your vehicle and hijack it for the achievement.

    QuarantaneNice guide. I hadn't thought of doing this, but can you actually drop the energy drain that quickly? I though that after being highjacked you were unable to do anything for a couple seconds.

    I may thing about doing this...although I generally tend not to play FFA as I enjoy team play more.

    SinlkaIs this even possible anymore without a map pack DLC? I don't know of any normal maps that have a ghost on it anymore not to mention the lack of players.

    The easiest maps to do this on are High Ground and Snowbound. They both have vehicles and are small maps. I have done this achievement twice on both and found it pretty simple.

    As soon as the match begins, try to avoid other players and find a Ghost. It doesn't have to be a Ghost but they are easier to get away in if your being shot at. Also, most players will rarely try to hijack a Mongoose or Warthog so the Ghost is the best to try.

    Now, the trick is to find another player and drive the Ghost right next to them. Don't splatter or shoot them just stop the Ghost as soon as you reach them. The player should hijack you. If they don't, drive away and then go back.

    Once they do, drive the Ghost full speed into a nearby wall, tree or whatever before they kick you off. If done correctly, by the time they turn the Ghost around, you can successfully hijack them and unlock the achievement. Sometimes players will speed away in the Ghost once they have control so try to crash it just before you're kicked off and you should have no problem.

    Some of the best places to try are small areas like inside the underground passage on Snowbound or inside the base on High Ground. The other player won't be able to escape quickly if there are too many nearby objects.

    Here is a video showing how I got the achievement:

    If doing this solo it's a lot more bothersome than it should be. The best way is Social Rumble Pit on Snowbound. Social is better than Ranked Lone Wolves because I kept getting the mongoose instead of the ghost on this level. Grab the ghost and go to the opposite side of the map where the overhang is, near the three tunnels that meet underground. There should be a impassible shield on one side and a column on the other. If you position yourself between the two, you should have enough time to get boarded and get your ghost back. Really easy and a lot less painful than seeing someone speed away on your ghost.
