BioShock Infinite

BioShock Infinite Achievements

Missile Defense System

In CitC, kill an enemy with splash damage by shooting a rocket out of the air.  

Only certain enemies carry the RPG weapon which shoots rockets. When you find these enemies, shoot them until they are very low on health. When you see the burst from the rocket launcher, try to shoot it in mid air. If done accurately, it will explode killing the enemy. You may have to try this a few times before you get it. Another way that may work for you, is shooting your own rocket and causing splash damage.

Having a hard time with this one. I'm thinking the best way to do this is make sure the enemy with the rocket launcher is the last enemy, lower there health and when they shoot a rocket, use the shotgun and hope you hit the rocket?

I got this on level 6 in the first arena. I got close to one of the enemies carrying a club and suspended him in the air with Bucking Bronco to keep him from moving. Then I stood behind him and waited for a rocket guy to fire at me and shot his rocket while it was close to the poor guy hanging in the air.

Got this one completely by accident. I was trying to do the blue ribbon challenge on Raven's Dome where you have to kill everyone with traps. I threw a devil's kiss trap at a door way where a rocket enemy was. I tried to run to cover, he shot, it set off the trap I guess and killed him. I was about to be pissed off that I failed the challenge until the achievement popped up.

I really hate the wording of a lot of the DLC stuff.

I keep shooting the rocket in mid air getting a splash effect, but still no achievement even though I think I killed the rocket launcher guy by splash effect idk. Not sure what I did wrong.

Got it without taking a long time, but it was still annoying to do. If you don't like the shotgun, use the machine gun to shoot the rocket.

#8 I got this by getting up close to one of the rpg-soldiers in stage 6 of OPS Zeal. Had my shotgun on and fired towards his head just when he fired a rocket. I know that was pure luck, but it's one way of doing it. Btw, he was quite weakened at that time.

Good luck. .i wasn't that hard to get..????????????????

So I just got this using return to sender and caught a rocket and threw it back. Achievement unlocked. Anyone confirm if this worked for them. Way easier than timing the shots.
