This like any other achievement is done easiest on Easy. As long as you're a pretty good player to dodge slow shooting, and dash melee attack, he'll do barely any damage to you. Right after he charges at you and takes a swing at you, dodge it w/ Primes ability (Note: You roll the direction of movement, Not reticule), when you dodge it he always goes a little bit farther behind you and stands there for about 2-3 seconds giving you a small window of opportunity to melee his power core. Once you get your hit, pull back a bit and put space between him and you, but not too far nor close, just right to get him to not to shoot you but to charge and melee you, if he does shoot you, just lazily move left so the bullets go the right of you, once he's done shooting move in a bit to get him to charge. When you do get your hit, it's useless to try to roll to his back as he'll just keep spinning around.

Another great window of opportunity is when he sticks his sword or arm into the crowd to send out a red radial blast around him, I'm not even sure what it does as it doesn't even kick you back so don't be afraid to get close behind, so when the blast goes out (you should be behind right now of course) his power core just pulsated red, melee him (Note: You kinda dash forward when you do), it does a bit more damage, And if you see it in time, he reaches back as if to scratch his back, when does this, you get 2 more melee hits before he moves.

He retreats when his health is at around 1/4 down or so, don't remember exactly.
