You can do this solo with one controller.

Head into the garage and set your Body type to 'Scarab or Zippy'. They need to be unlocked by winning matches but Zippy unlocked with only a few wins but I think it is random.

Now setup a 2v2 exhibition match with no bots with the mutator for 'Max Score' set to '1Goal'. Once loaded auto join any team with cn_A and score the only goal which ends the game and makes you the MVP.

If the achievement isn't unlocking its possible that you're game is having issues that the game has been having from its initial launch, make sure to force quit the game and reopen to retry it.

Since some don't believe you can do it with no bots here's a poorly shot video of my unlocking it on an alt, best I can record with on xbox One with achievement pops, sorry.
AbsolutioN IXYou don't necessarily need two controllers, I just picked the Zippy and won in a regular season game against bots.

SpilnerI'm wondering if the people who voted negatively have got achievement issues they don't know about.
Posted by Spilner on 17 Feb 16 at 20:34
Jason SYou need bots to get this achievement.

RawwwrrrrrI think it's that you can't get an MVP award in a 1v1.
Posted by Rawwwrrrrr on 19 Feb 16 at 09:42
SpilnerIve already stated 2v2 in the solution for that reason, can play any of the standard team sizes solo still with no bots (1v1-4v4)

xLil SheWolfxI can confirm you can do it solo just did an 4v4 exhibition Match with no bots using the Zippy car and it unlocked instantly. +1

WhoIsJohn117Tried it with the Octane multiple times. Came to this solution, tried it with the Scarab, and got it the first time. +1

NoHeroes94Does it have to be 2v2 minimum? Would explain it as i tried it quickly last night and i did 1v1 and it didn't work
Posted by NoHeroes94 on 19 May 16 at 08:30
SpilnerYup, that's why i say 2v2 in the solution wink
Posted by Spilner on 19 May 16 at 09:03
Epsilon FactorThanks for this solution. This worked on the first try, took around 30 seconds and earned me 3 achievements! "Hot Shot, Part Two", "SARPBC Forever", and "Friendly" dance

Mad HecticWorked for me with Scarab first time +1 thanks bud

SpilnerSolution doesn't say to use octane, zoidberg1339

AckisDidn't work with Octane, worked with Scarab. Walkthrough suggests using Octane.
Posted by Ackis on 12 Jun 16 at 18:27
SpilnerWell this solution isn't the walkthrough and this tells you to not use octane. If octane is wrong for the WT tell that author not me.

Limmy14Spot on!

Tre4This achievement isn't popping for me. I don't usually have issues with achievements popping if I know I am doing something right. Doing Exhibition match rumble 4v4 with no bots. Was this achievement changed or patched for the described method?
Edit: Restarted my Xbox as well just to make sure, and still no luck.

darkavenger786From personal experience, this didn't unlock for me using this guide. Tried without bots, nothing. Tried both cars, nothing. Went into a 2v2 game against bots and set it to 1 goal limit. Unlocked staright after the match
Posted by darkavenger786 on 05 Aug 18 at 22:07
SpilnerWell unless an update changed something my video is there as proof it works(/not)
