This is unlocked in the exact same way as in the other editions of Minecraft, except Ghasts seem to spawn much less frequently in the Windows 10 version. Because of this, you'll have to spend a good amount of time exploring until you find one (remember to mark where you've been with torches, glowstone, etc. to avoid getting lost).

Once you have entered the nether and have found a Ghast, simply wait for it to shoot a fireball at you, then left click your mouse to deflect it with your sword back right as it's about to hit you. The Ghast should die in one hit, granting you the achievement.
Panthera oncaAbout how long did it take you to find a Ghast? Been in the Nether probably close to 2 hours and have not seen a Ghast. Never thought I'd be sad NOT to see a Ghast.

Chaz Of SpartaI don't think it took me more than an hour, but by the sound of it I was just lucky. As with ocelots, magma cubes and wither skeletons, ghasts rarely seem to spawn which can be really frustrating, so try hanging around large open areas as that's where they tend to spawn for me.

BillJones0302Wondering around for just over two hours, then suddenly fireballs began landing on the ground. There were two ghasts in the sky, had not had one spawn prior to this moment. Got really lucky, game does not spawn with the frequency of the X1 or 360. Searching for a fortress, unreal to locate one.

Archie TulipI've not seen anything other than pigmen in the nether!

HalderI must of been quite lucky on my world, not sure if they had glitched or something but they were always just sat down somewhere until I was a couple of blocks away.

So be sure to check everywhere not just looking for them flying around.

Panthera oncaI just joined my son's world on his iPad and found a Ghast within 5 minutes of being in the Nether. I just started killing Zombie Pigmen and a Ghast spawned.

Dream FiendThis achievement will not unlock for me :/
Killed over 5 ghasts all from sending fireballs back at them in my world and my girlfriends world never loaded in creative or anything. Annoying thing is that it did unlock for her when we were trying.

On a side note we both felt that putting the difficulty slider over to hard (all the way right) made ghasts spawn more frequently, a couple times we had one spawn seconds after the other died, may be worth mentioning.
