If you have two controllers it would make it easier for you: Start a two player local game and have you be the gunner and the guest be the driver of the same team. When the game starts, commandeer a turret near the guest's car and shoot at its windshield. By shooting at your teammates windshield, it should be an instant kill and the achievement should pop up.

Even without doing this, it's not that difficult.

I got this on my first game, had probably 3 or 4 of the windshield kills. I was on the third track (don't know the name offhand), and at one point there's a fairly long straight path where the cars are driving directly towards you. Very easy to do.

If your still having trouble- If you are boosting this with a 2nd controller or friend online, have the driver be the buggy. The buggy has the biggest windshield IMO and I got the cheeve my very first shot. I used the big pickup first and couldn't get a windshield shot at all.

Two Controllers. Multiplayer. Create Match. Second Player is racer. First player (who wants the achievement) is shooter. You must be on different teams. Go to the first turret and aim at the track as player one. Drive as player two and press B when in sight of the turret. Zoom up as the turret and hit the windshield. Also make it so there are no bots. May sound complicated, but it really isn't.

Thanks to Rajeanero for the sig!

Gotta go with the two controllers approach other than that you are bound to get it sooner rather than later from ordinary matches.

Lol I got this one by accident when I was shooting at cars. If you just have fun then you will easily get the windshield achievement as well as the achievement to get the tires

My friend convinced me to get this game. He invited me to a game and showed me how to shoot the turrets and use them correctly. First race, first shot, I get a windshield kill on my friend, and I ask him "Like that?". He says lucky shot, so I keep playing on the turret. Next lap I shoot out my friends tires. This time there was no response.
