This guide is going to solely focus on the final boss fight. Everything else you do prior to this is fairly straight-forward.

This was one of the most difficult achievements I've completed in recent memory. Know that you will likely be frustrated with how much you die. I had to die at least 20 times, at least. But keep with it!

First off, when I was constantly getting stuck I searched online and found this thread:

The note I found most helpful was post #6 by Anim.

Now that I've outted my is my own explanation on how I managed to finally get this. Please note that this entire guide should be considered spoilers.

Get ready for a wall of text...

*** Spoiler - click to reveal ***

Once you finally kill him you'll get a new cut scene and be placed outside. Load up your map, mark the objective (named Defiance) on your map (will be about 4km away across the bridge and whatnot)...head there...once the new cut scene triggers and everyone sings your praises you'll get your achievement.

As an FYI, every time I died I lost 180 scrip. Not a huge deal...just an FYI. If you are using a weapon that is not maxed out yet then you'll get the damage EXP, even when you die. So that's "some" good news I suppose. I ended up ranking up my combat shotgun from level 1 to level 2 during this fight. I had never even tried the combat shotgun prior to this. So yeah...lots of damage and death.

Thanks for reading. I hope I helped someone, even if it's just to form your own strategy. This was a huge pain in the ass...gratifying at the end...but a pain in the ass still. Should have been worth more gamerscore in my opinion.

Feel free to leave your own feedback and strategies in the comments.

Good luck and stick with it!

EDIT (A few notes from the comments):

1. "Mr Yac" says he used the BG weapon type for the entire fight. He did mention that it may take a little longer, but the ability to have it "stay on target" once you hit the boss (with RT) and the ability to re-shield yourself (with LT) make it another option. Perhaps a BG and SMG would work best if you decide to use this strategy.
