This achievement in for defeating the specialist in the mission "errand boy". This mission is started by going to Karen's apartment and she will tell you in the cut scene that she needs genetic information from INSIDE a hive. Go to the hive marked on your map and go to the roof to initiate an in-game cut scene showing you entering the hive. Go around collecting the genetic information until the bar is half-full, and the Specialist will descend down. Now for the boss himself.

The specialist has a shock staff, so don't even try getting close to him, or you'll be hit for some health and deal no damage. Instead, make sure you buy whipfist prior to this boss fight,and long range shot is a welcome addition too. The fist half of the battle has you and him pitted one on one. Dodge rockets and stay pretty far away until he starts using his wrist-mounted rocket launcher. If you are close enough, you can hit him as soon and the green target laser turns on, but otherwise hit him after he fires, where he will yell "reloading!" (to no one except you, just for your convenience :>D). After you get him down to half health, another cut scene plays.

He disappears to the roof for a little while, and in the meantime hunters burst out of pustules all around the room. After taking a few out, he will come back down. Make sure you use claws or hammerfist (whichever you prefer) to take out all of the hunters (hunter dirtnap is useful) and turn back to whipfist for the Specialist. He will have better aim this time around, but luckily, you should have full health after consuming a few hunters. After he is around 1/4 health, another cut scene plays.

He calls blackwatch troops for reinforcement, which can give you extra health for consuming, and then turn your attention to him again. Try to stay long range and use the longshot as much as you can, until he is defeated, when a final cut scene will play where you will lose all of your powers. This should get you the achievement, and just evade the military (don't even try to fight, you have NO powers, remember?) and the mission finally ends.

(added by terrett101) "After killing a bunch of soldiers towards the end it's possible that one or more of then will have dropped grenade launchers. Grabbing one of these and unloading the clips into the boss is very effective, but he does go on the offensive, so be prepared to move when he lunges at you with the shock staff"

I just target him and jump around hitting him with the wipfist Y attack. It takes a bit longer but your so much more manouverable. You can also use B on soldiers to reel them in and then consume.
