Cold Snap

Game Over

D.Va - Kill 4 enemies with a single use of D.Va’s Self-Destruct in Quick or Competitive play.

STRATEGIES

Use boosters to throw your Self-Destruct at the enemy team from unsuspecting angles on wide open maps where there is little cover for them to hide. Alternatively, combo your ult with a Graviton Surge, Earth Shatter, or even a good Halt.

#5

SUPPORT ACHIEVEMENTS

Antipode

Moira - Hit 7 targets simultaneously with Moira’s Coalescence in Quick or Competitive play.

STRATEGIES

You will need to hit at least two enemies and one ally. The remaining four can be a blend from either team.

 

Enabler

Ana - Get 4 kills or assists with a single use of Ana’s Nano Boost in Quick or Competitive play.

STRATEGIES

  • Depends on your team. Best way is to get two friends - one on Zarya and one as Genji. Zarya catches 4 enemies in Grav on point and Genji uses his blade that you nano. Just have in mind if enemy have Zenyatta he could counter it. Better save Nade for it.
    Side note: you can replace Genji with Hanzo - both their ults ignore barrier, just nano him before he uses his ult. - Wulfyk

 

Grounded

Brigitte - Kill an airborne enemy with Brigitte’s Whip Shot in Quick or Competitive Play.

STRATEGIES

  • Look out for airborn enemies. Predict their falling pattern and strike them accordingly. Your best bet is to strike someone jumping, into pit they cannot recover from. - Wulfyk

 

Group Health Plan

Mercy - Restore 200 health for 5 players without dying as Mercy in Quick or Competitive play.

STRATEGIES

The key is not going into the fronline, try to stay with your team without getting in danger.
With Valk you can Heal Multiple Targets at once!
So try saving your Ultimate so you can use it when you see that many teammates are getting hurt.

 

Huge Rez

Mercy - Resurrect 6 players as Mercy without dying in Quick or Competitive play.

STRATEGIES

  • Key phrasing here being “without dying”. Focus on your own survival don’t go after risky rezes just under enemy nose. Your best bet is to pair with friendly Rein that will shiled you during those 1.75 s. - Wulfyk

 

Huge Success

Symmetra - Teleport 20 players in a single Quick or Competitive play game as Symmetra.

STRATEGIES

You nees your team to use your teleporter. If you place it as shortcut from spawn or quick high ground access and communicate with your team you shouldn’t have much troubles getting it. Biggest obstacle will be your team mates. So I suggest LFG or at least 3 stack. - Wulfyk

 

Naptime

Ana - Interrupt an enemy Ultimate Ability with Ana’s Sleep Dart in Quick or Competitive play.

STRATEGIES

  • You need to listen to audio ques and look out for flanking McCrees and Reapers as their ults are easiest to shutdown. Also ulting Hog is nice juicy target for that one. Remember sleepdart have delay in fireing so you need to predict your opponent movments. -Wulfyk

 

Rapid Discord

Zenyatta - Get 4 kills or assists with Zenyatta’s Orb of Discord within 6 seconds in Quick or Competitive play.

STRATEGIES

  • One of hardest to get. Only strategy is to have team that focuses on your called out, discorded target. Other than that stick to one DPS and support him. - Wulfyk

 

Simple Trigonometry

Moira - Fully deplete both types of Moira’s Biotic Orb without dying in Quick or Competitive play.

STRATEGIES

  • Focus on not dying part. With Moira it shouldn’t be that hard. 2 capture points maps are your friend as both teams love to stand in chokes and absorb damage. If you don’t have that much luck, as defender use your damage orb at start of round when attacker spwan door opens. Be wary of D.va. Healing orbs are best used in closed points like in Lijang Market or Illios Lighthouse. - Wulfyk

 

Supersonic

Lúcio - Block 1000 damage with a single use of Lúcio’s Sound Barrier in Quick or Competitive play.

STRATEGIES

The Car Wash

Symmetra - Hit an enemy with 6 beams simultaneously as Symmetra in Quick or Competitive play.

STRATEGIES

If you place all of your Sentry Turrets near a key choke/pathway, it should be fairly easy to get this achievement.

 

The Floor is Lava

Lúcio - Get 3 killing blows while Wall Riding as Lúcio without dying in Quick or Competitive play.

STRATEGIES

#6

MAP ACHIEVEMENTS

Can't Touch This

Maps - Prevent the attacking team from touching the payload for 1 minute in Quick or Competitive play.

STRATEGIES

This achievement best works by playing coordinated with a 6-person group in quick play. After an escort type map has begun try to defeat an attacking team to where the payload is significantly far away from their spawn area. Then try to spend any possible time to attack them near their spawn.

 

Double Cap

Maps - Capture both objectives on a capture map without dying in Quick or Competitive play.

STRATEGIES

Focus on your survival rather than getting kills as you work to achieve this.

 

Escort Duty

Maps - Push a payload 100 meters without leaving it in Quick or Competitive play.

STRATEGIES

Play good tank roles and focus on your survival as you work to earn this achievement. Try to pair up with a friend who can heal you frequently.

 

Lockdown

Maps - Win a capture map on defense without losing the first objective in Quick or Competitive play.

STRATEGIES

This will likely occur eventually as you play. Just learn how each map works and figure out how to quickly return to the first objective from your spawn area.

 

Shutout

Maps - Win a control map without the enemy capturing an objective in Quick or Competitive play.

STRATEGIES

This will likely occur eventually as you play. Just learn how each map works and figure out how to quickly return to the objective from your spawn area.

 

World Traveler

Maps - Win a Quick or Competitive play on 12 different maps.

STRATEGIES

This will eventually be unlocked the more you continue to play. Remember there are now 18 different maps which qualify for this achievement.

*I am currently building the template and starting information for all Hero and Map guides right now. Start thinking about what strategies you would like to contribute but please DO NOT start any Topic/Wiki threads for any of these subjects. They WILL NOT be linked to this list if you do. Cheers! (^^)v


#9

Just as a reminder everyone, all achievements are already listed organized into the seven official categories. Just add in strategies!


#10

I see.

Sorry, Wyoming!


#11

As an update I got basic tips uploaded for all General and Map achievements (as they are the easiest).


#12

I’ve made some additions to Total Recall and both of Mei’s achievements. They may need additions/editing.
In addition, Road Kill is a Defence achievement, but it is currently in the Tank category.


#13

Hey thanks for catching that, I got it moved. Your contributions look great to me! Great job!


#14

I know SunsetHippo made a Zayra guide already.


#15

Thanks! I may add more in the future, but I got most of these without focusing on getting them on purpose (only ones I’ve specifically grinded out are Armour Up (mainly luck) and Total Recall), so it is a bit hard to go from experience.


#16

Yep, and will be looking to turn that into one of the Wiki pages once I get the hero templates built.


#17

Where do we add extra bits of info for getting achievement if they’re not really a strategy?


#18

Not sure what you mean. Can you provide an example?


#19

I’m guessing one example would be with Armour Up. Just throw Armour Packs around the point, and occasionally check up on others to see if anyone specifically needs a pack.


#20

This is what I want to add.

In order to get Orisa’s Halt State achievement, the enemies must take 1000 damage, so pulling a Genji, Lucio, Mercy, and Soldier in a Self Destruct won’t give the achievement since only 800 damage was done.

It’s not really a strategy so I don’t know where to put it.


#21

Oh just add that in the same place, it educates what is important to know for the player who would be reading it.


#22

Yeah! This is a bit like with Antipode how you need to hit at least one ally and two enemies (the remaining four can come from either side).
