This achievement is obtainable at the end of Chapter 13, when you (Grimlock) have to defend Optimus Prime from the attacks of several Decepticons.

I'd suggest to do this in robot mode (press cn_RB to transform), as you're more mobile in this mode. Stand right in front of Optimus, and do not move too far away from him. The enemies will arrive in waves, both from the front, and from the right. If you move too far away from Optimus, it's likely that his HP will drop very quickly. So, basically, just stand close to him, and absorb the hits. It'd be advisable to bring either a C.U.R.E.D. or an Energon Recharger as perks to help replenish your HP, just in case something goes awry. If you don't have these perks, you may have to go back a couple of chapters to equip them though, since I don't remember this chapter having a weapon swap terminal.

Important: You can use cn_LT in robot mode to hold up a shield to reduce damage taken.

Wait for the enemies to get close to you, before using melee attacks cn_B to kill them. The first few waves should be easy, but once the Titans appear, be sure to stay guard in front of Optimus, and use cn_LT to hold the forte. Do not venture out to fight them. Wait for them to get close, kill all other smaller bots, before engaging the Titans. When holding cn_LT, you can also press cn_B to do a Shield Bash. This move is useful to clear the small bots, but isn't effective in killing the Titans, so use at your discretion.

It's good to note that once Optimus isn't under attack, his HP will replenish after a while. This helps to unlock the achievement easier.

At any time you feel that Optimus' HP is approaching 50%, and you're failing, reload the checkpoint to retry. This is because once you fail, you won't be able to unlock the achievement even if you reload last checkpoint, and must replay the entire chapter from scratch.

This video from the PS4trophies channel on youtube should explain the above pretty much.
