WARNING: The Boss Hunt difficulty achievements do not stack with each, you must do each difficulty individually.

To get this achievement you must complete the Mystery Portal game mode Boss Hunt on Normal difficulty. Unfortunately the game mode is not always available to be played. At the time of writing this it will be available from September 29th - October 2nd (this will be edited out later). To see when the next game mode for the Mystery Portal, keep an eye on to see when it opens again, unfortunately the calendar is not 100% accurate (yet) and does not tell you what game mode is available (yet?).

You will want to group up with liked minded individuals that you can communicate with for the higher difficulties, doing it with randoms is only really feasible on Normal difficulty but can still be a challenge. To group up for this game mode, you must party up in the Backyard Battleground, you cannot do it in the game mode otherwise you will be paired up with randoms.

Your Team setup should include at least 2 Sunflowers, the rest depends on the players.
Characters to avoid using are:
-All Chompers: As a Chomper you have no long range capabilities (except Yeti Chomper but I'd still say avoid it) and with being up close you will take enormous amounts of damage, especially on higher difficulties.
-Most Cactus characters should be avoided because when the boss has appeared you must be very mobile. Future Cactus and Bandit Cactus if you are very good with them
-Single-shot characters (excluding Peashooters): Unless you are very good with them, it is best to go for their full auto version to not get overwhelmed by the smaller enemies.
-Party variants should be avoided unless you are very skilled with and have upgrades that make them better. Too weak statistically on their own.

Character Suggestions:
-Vampire: Using this variant and with having the Elite rank level 5's Vampiric upgrade you will be practically immortal as long as you keep firing at the boss. Using this variant you could swap in Dark Flower instead of Heal Flower to have another mini-fighter helping along
Stuffy: Every time you kill an enemy they will drop health for you or a teammate to pick up. Fire very fast, has 40 clip and surprisingly accurate.
Fire/Power: Fire provides Damage over time while Power helps killing smaller enemies

Fire/Toxic: Provides excellent damage over time
Ice: Able to freeze enemies and slow the boss down a bit
Commando: Full auto firing can be very helpful

All Other Plants you can use any variant, but the elemental variants will be a lot more useful in the long run.

Now to start the Boss Hunt once you are on the map you must setup bait and this is where you will select your difficulty: Normal Mode, Hard Mode, and Craaazy Mode.
Once you have selected your difficulty you must protect the bait from enemies for about 4 waves. Best to have the team divided to cover both sides.

After all the enemies have been defeated, the boss will appear but regular enemies will still be coming around and you are given 25 minutes to defeat the boss before he flees (the boss will become enraged when you are amount to be out of time). Have a good balance of attacking the boss and defending yourself from regular enemies.

Once you have taken 1/4 off the health bar of the boss, he will temporarily retreat and you will have take out targets in a short time-limit, so it is best to split up into pairs with a healer on each pair. As each target is destroyed the time will be extended until all targets have been destroyed (they show up around the map in specific spots in predetermined order). Once all targets are destroyed a new challenge pops up with a time limit. You must raise a garden (similar to the Suburbination game mode aka keep zombies out), but unfortunately at the time of writing this it will not show you where it is, but it will be one of the garden locations found in Garden Ops for that map and you will have to look for a green circle around the spot. Once the garden is up it will project a shield and you must stay within til the time expires otherwise you will be insta-killed.

This challenge will occur once you reach 1/2 of the health bar of the boss with no changes. Once you reach 3/4, you will have to defeat some regular enemies and normal bosses before you can do the previous challenges again (failing the target challenge will not make you have to take on the reinforcements waves again). The bad news for failing the target challenge is the boss will regain 1/8 of his health back and you must redo the challenge again. Failing the garden challenge will wipe out your entire team, try to avoid that.

I will update this solution if there are any changes to this mode.
If you give a negative, please comment with feedback, thank you.
