XCOM: Enemy Within

XCOM: Enemy Within Achievements

Mental Minefield

Kill an enemy as it is psionically attacking you in single player  

You'll need to perform an autopsy of a Sectoid Commander to unlock the Neural Feedback Gene Mod. Get a Sectoid Commander or an Ethereal to less than 3 health and let them psionically attack your soldier equipped with the Neural Feedback Mod.

Tips from PromoteViolence:
The lowest Neural Feedback damage I ever did to an enemy was 8, and I've seen 13 done to an Ethereal on Normal difficulty. I believe higher Will raises damage, and maybe a Will vs Will type situation is taken into account. When I did 13 damage, my soldier only had 138 will (No Psi Armor or Psi Inspiration, just a Mind Shield and medal bonuses). I would recommend only giving this ability to higher Will troops.

Does anyone know a sure fire way to get this? I killed a sectoid commander while he was linked to one of my soldiers but the achievement did not pop. Does this have something to do with the brain gene mods? I know there's one to reverse psionic attacks but I have not tried it myself.

I can confirm that going with the brain gene mod Neural Feedback when a psionic based alien attempts to mind control you it will reverse and cause damage to the alien instead

I just got this when a Sectoid Commander tried to mind control one of my Supports with the Meural Feedback Gene Mod. The Sectoid said it had Feedback on it, but no damage was done. That Support then killed the Commander and the achievement popped. Hope that helps!
