This is by far the most challenging achievement in the DLC.
Most of the Torments are pretty self-explanatory. You can read the requirements by checking into your journal. Some of them are linked to specific boss fight rooms like the car one or the one with the turret so you can pick them up in New Game + if you missed some.

The last one however will be the real problem. It requires you to beat the hidden execution chamber which will unlock in New Game +. It's located in the room with the last save mirror right before the final boss. (It's a red circle on the wall you enter by holding cn_A ). In this challange room you will encounter most of the bosses in the DLC again but this time you will have to fight them all in one go without dying. While you are fighting them an infinite amount of Haunted will come your way as well but you shouldn't focus on them too much after the first 3 waves.

I recommend using molotovs on the chainsaw/rocket launcher enemies and TNT on the big one with the large club. They shouldn't be a big challange after a few tries.

You will earn a lot of money along the way (some tries I got up to 500 with the gold hammer) so if you want to upgrade everything do it here. You will need it.

The real tough part of this room are the last two guys. Save up a med pack, dropped by the regular enemies before you finish your last chainsaw guy. Afterwards both Sebastian and Joseph will come out of the elevator and shoot you relentlessly dealing a lot of damage. My strategy was to shoot the rocket launcher at the wall between them so I would hit them both with each shot. I also recommend thowing out a lot of wire traps beforehand because they often end up shooting them instead of you which gives you a great distraction or if placed correctly can even get them trapped. Other than that you can use the big truck to the right of the elevator as cover if your rockets didn't deal enough damage. Then you should throw out some more wire traps on the sides of the truck in case they try to flank you and throw out everything you have got left on them.

As a reward you will get infinite ammo for all of your weapons which will help greatly for the "I've Got Box of Steel" achievement and is also required to get the "I Might Close Early" achievement.

Good luck :)
