Ironman Achievement.....

Man....am I the only one that is super frustrated by this achievement. My CPU teammates don't seem to have problems causing turnovers and returning them for touchdowns, yet I can never get a ball thrown or ever really ran my way to cause a fumble. I have played a total of 40 campus RtG games and only have 1 single interception and no fumble recoveries. Anyone have any advice that could help me? I have tried LB, CB and safety.

This is the only one that seems it is going to be hard to get...I did a lot of games as a DE and would get a decent amount of sacks, but only 1 forced fumble....I've never personally gotten a turnover with my player

I just forced a fumble but then my teammate came right in front of me and ran it in for a touchdown.
This is ridiculous. 3 times now...........

Btw, press LB in order to strip the ball.

I got lucky. LOLB and my last game (state championship) I recovered a fumble on about the 20 and managed to make it to the endzone, barely. On offense I was a QB and ran and threw for a TD.

This seems to be a "Right Place, Right Time" achievement that requires more luck than skill.

I have tried CB, but they hardly throw my way.

I was a QB and MLB and was having trouble just like everyone else, if I got lucky enough to cause a fumble I was never the one to recover, and forget trying to get and INT. Finally get fed up enough, I turned offsides off. Being a MLB I was sometimes put on the punt block unit, well I blocked a punt easily picked it up and took in it for a touchdown, I scored a passing TD and rushing TD earlier in the game. After the game ended the achievement popped (I say this because I was definitely doing a bummer moment when it didn't pop right after I picked up the blocked kick for a TD, thinking that maybe they don't count since they are special teams, but was happy when I heard the bleep bloop for Ironman after the game ended).

Funny enough the very next game I got an INT and took it in for a TD anyways, just thought I'd share about the workaround though if you eventually decide to give up trying to get the achievement playing by the rules.

Did you use a specific button to block the punt or did you just get in front of him?

I play as a MLB as well and I have tried to block punts before but I always seem to miss blocking it. Super frustrating.....

Agreed. I just seem to either tackle him for a loss or he slips away. I'm trying to use the LB to see if that helps, no success so far though.

That's probably what I am gonna do. Although, I wonder if you choose an existing player and boost his stats all the way if that would make it go faster while simming or doing it the regular way.

An existing player puts you in college and it has to be done in high school.

Also I finally have the 1000G in the game. It looks like only 2 people have all 1000 so far.

Just got it simmed as a CB..took me about 12 games....only 1 interception and he made it count....there was a fumble recovery in an earlier game, but he didnt take it back

This would be a whole lot easier if a) game was longer in RTG b) you played every down including punt blocking...only couple times was I there to block a punt and c) if you stood in front of the QB with offsides off...the ball SHOULD hit you, and bounce causing a fumble...but of course the hiked ball goes right through you

As a RE I got lucky enough to intercept the pitch when they ran an option play. Glad to get this achievement over with.

For those of you who are also simming to try and get this awful achievement, you can increase the amount of games per season to 11. Thus increasing the time to try and get this one.

Honestly, my friend helped me with this one. The easiest way is to go with a ROLB. Turn off offsides. Sim until 4th down and stand around 10 yards in front of punter. Run at them and press Y as the punter tries to kick it. If you block it, it will bounce towards the endzone, pick it up and score. I got it on my 2nd blocked punt in the first game I played.

Yup exactly this, hitting Y when trying to block the punt is the main thing. I usually go stand in front of the punter but slightly to the right or left of him so I can come in at an angle. Seems to produce better results for me then coming in straight at him. But yeah hitting Y is your best bet in blocking the punt, shouldn't take to many tries to get a system down where you can constantly be doing the block, then next part would be getting the pickup and running for a TD.

This method worked like a charm - I got it on my third try. Not sure if anyone else had this happen, but previously I only got one opportunity a game to be on the punt return team. Otherwise, I only could sim/watch the play. By simming the first 3 plays, it would give me the opportunity to be on the punt formation team and block the punt on every fourth down play.

This one is hard

I have played the entire high school season, and could not get a defensive td. My teammates had 3 in one game. This is very frustrating.

I tried out this method and I finally got it on my third punt block attempt. Hardest part was recovering the fumble before the punter dove for it.

Do you have to play 2 separate RTGs? Or is there a way you can have multiple players in one?

I'm a little confused on this one.

if you create a new RTG player, you will have the option of selecting a second postion, one on offense, one on defense... then you just have to play a high school game and score both an offensive and defensive touchdown. for the defensive td you can either select CB and super sim until you return an INT for a td, or you can select ROLB and try to block a punt and return it for a td, its a very hard achievement...

finally blocked a punt and returned it for a TD then, got the rushing and passing TD with my QB, simmed to end of game and no cheevo. I'd almost rather slam my manhood in a sliding glass door repeatedly as to have to do this son of a bitch whore achievement again. oh well, here goes another attempt.

this should be included in the achievement guide because it's a great method, best I've found thus far. it just hates me I suppose

Man this is a pain in the butt.

I'll try the Super Sim method see if that works.

EDIT 1: Simmed 4 games and got 1 INT for 40 yards. Ugh. This achievement is a POS.

The block-a-punt idea is probably the best one...

Too bad the camera angle is bollocks
