This achievement has a different locked and unlocked description. The locked description is: "Shoot down a spire missile with a blast while hovering."

Once you have the blast ability select it by pressing cn_left, and collect enough soul clusters to buy the hover upgrade for your Flight Arcane Power.

Find a spire which become unlocked a little way in to the story, and give yourself a little room to line up the shot. Do a charged jump by holding cn_A and once in the air, hold cn_LT to hover, and then watch for the missile to come towards you and press cn_RB to use your blast ability to shoot it down.

EDIT:

If you've destroyed all the spires before you get this, https://www.trueachievements.com/BL4CK+SiLvA.htm left this in the comments.

If you already cleared all the spires (like I did) You can still get this achievement by using your summon ability to summon your own spire tower.

I hovered above my summoned tower with the heat level at 5 and as soon as the spire started shooting flying demons I used the blast ability on the missile and the achievement unlocked.

Fuelled by BeerDoes this matter what element of blast you use? This isn't unlocking for me.

EnatoThe easiest place to do this if you already finish all the spires is the tempest club.
Just keeping shooting outside of the club until one Dark Inciter appears inside the club and then use your own spire tower. The spire tower will spam missiles to the ceiling, so just keep blast stone ability and you should get the achievement.

OnsidicCOOP update for this solution:
Playing this earlier today, coop partner was working on weapon kills, i did this achievement and it popped for both of us at the same time.
So looks like 1 person doing this in coop will pop it for the other :)
Guess this would also work if you had cleared them all as well. (Other person will have to be host - and will need to got to first (tower) marker in the Satans reputation level.

KiRRAYNEHow do you use the summon power? I'm just returning to this game so I'm kind of confused

thatNoseyParkerI did this on my own summon, but for some reason it didn’t pop using the default blast power, I had to switch to Shadow.

InterracialSilva's comment above did this for me. I just couldn't pop this achievement at all, and then I read the comment and put my own spire tower down and popped it within 5 minutes. Thanks.
