    Single Player: Before you go out to fight him pick up the Torque Bow and either the Sniper or Lancer and make sure you have full grenades.

    To start off take cover behind the cover right in front of you, fire a Torque shot into him and it will dissipate his kryll shield, then switch to your lancer/ sniper and let loose on him until his kryll shield comes back. Then rinse and repeat, if you run out of torque shots use your grenades and when he gets up to the cover your at, book it to the other side if it comes to that.

    Co-op: Pretty much the same thing except each person can take their weapon of choice. One with torque, other with sniper/lancer, it is a lot easier this way, but if you cant find a partner just follow the above solution and you should do fine.

    ColFrost 27It's funny cause me and buddy of mine used pretty much the same strategy years ago almost when the game came out.

    WhyattThrashDoing this single player is a pain, Dom will run up and die and after that RAAM will just run straight towards you and you will die too. There's a way to use Dom's stupidity to your advantage though. Raam will mostly follow you when you're behind cover, so if Dom dies in one of the two corridors right in front of the first cover, walk over to that side of the cover and Raam will take that corridor. He will walk straight into Dom, try to walk over him but get stuck. Unload everything you've got and there you go.

    There is a way to kill him in co-op on Insane in about 30 seconds without cheating.

    Just be sure before the fight that both players have Torque Bow. At the beginning of the fight cover and shoot RAAM with all shots from Torque Bow. About 30 seconds of shooting just from Bow and RAAM is going down. Just look out when he's shooting.

    Confused ShelfThank you, this is the method I used. What is with all the crap with the Longshot. The lighting makes it difficult to headshot and a headshot with the torque bow does 3x as much

    thekisselThis took me and stevezep19 about 8-10 tries on this method, and I was surprised when we got it, because I was sure we were both downed, but hey, it worked, and that's what is important.

    This is easiest on co-op, but can still be done on your own.

    The strategy is to remove the Kryll shield from General Raam, so you can shoot his head. This means you need to take the torque bow and longshot (it can be done with lancer), as well as grenades. Then, as he moves towards you, fire an arrow at him, and once the Kryll are scattered, aim for his head and get as many shots in as possible. Repeat this for as long as you can.

    After a while, he will come very close to your position {if you are playing on casual you could have already killed him}, so then you need to roadie run past him and take cover further down the train. You must make sure that you stay in the light areas to avoid being killed, and then simply repeat the above tactic until he goes down. (You may need to run past him again)
