Easiest way, indefinitely. I had been grinding away for the 100 games played and not even realizing, I got the sniper achievement.

- Turn your phone lock screen to 3 minutes
- Turn halves to 2 minutes
- Set the controls to touch
- Set the difficulty to amateur
- CHV vs CHI
- Let the game play automatically


Sometime last night I was playing TitanFall and clicking the phone for halftime and such to continue, at some point the computer took the free shot for me and scored because I didn't respond quick enough.
Jamiereloaded23Excellent tip, initially misread it but once i had it on touch control i got this achievement within 3 games, so thank you.

qwxxTo be honest, I was surprised it worked as well however very excited that it did. dance

TanukiVCan it be done in free mode? I thought selecting teams (CHV vs CHI) only work after you pay 5$?

qwxxI didn't pay a dime for FIFA 14, though I would. I love playing it on Xbox One. I did it from the Games of the Week mode.

TanukiV@OniKawazu: ignore it, they are just random team from Game of the week

Jedi Pirate OniCan this still be done in game of the week then? Or Freeplay? Can this still be done?

TanukiVI did it on GOTW

CayMackWorked perfectly, thanks! Only thing I changed was lock screen to 5 minutes. With all the delays on throw ins, free kicks there were some times that 2 min halves took longer than 3 min to play out.

qwxxI did this also on PC. Just changed the difficulty from beginner to amateur, and vice versa. In fact, I noticed the computer took a couple free kicks on amateur and they were blocked. I kept the laptop close and when I saw the opportunity on amateur I quickly switched the difficulty to beginner and voila!

Hope that helps!!

x RepoUK xReinstalled the game for the new GOTW teams (see above) after completing all the other achievements. I'd read somewhere that the WP version did not save to cloud so waited as I didn't want to start again but found that everything is saved to cloud anyway. This method worked first time for me, although I did take the shot myself wink

qwxxI took the shot a couple times and failed miserably. I think I attempted it 15 times and made it twice after getting the achievement just to see if I could. shock

CraiglionheartCant understand how everyone gets these free kicks, ive played/watched about 50 games and have NEVER had a single free kick.... And yes it's in amateur
Posted by Craiglionheart on 09 Sep 14 at 23:20
qwxxTry stepping it up even another level

SpaceDustWorked like a charm dude. Thumbs up! 2nd game for me but i took the free kick in the first game and missed and then let the cpu do it in the 2nd game (replay). GOAL!!!!

Eric From CaliIt's been over 20 games so far and no free kick. Not even an attempt. They just won't foul me....I'm starting to think this method won't work.

qwxxTry increasing the difficulty. Make sure you're on the correct controls. It works.
