Note: This will be written as a stamina-kill guide. If you're not interested in getting her camouflage, feel free to use any weapon against her.

First things first, get some good camouflage on, but not necessarily the best. Your best choices are Snow or AUSCAM; Snow has higher camo index, but AUSCAM takes 2/3rds damage. I chose AUSCAM with no face paint. Your weapons of choice are the Mk22 and, if you stamina-killed The End, the Mosin Nagant, although it's not as important. Finally, while you've got ten minutes, don't worry too much about it unless you're trying to shoot all the frogs and get all the unique snakes in the area at the same time.

The entire point of the fight is to get The Boss to fall over. When she does so, she stays down for a bit, allowing you to get two shots in on her. Even if you can fire more, they won't do anything, so aim for the head and don't overstay your welcome! There are several ways to get her to fall over:

1) CQC her. She'll yell something like "Get ready!" and charge you. Unequip your weapon immediately; if you don't and fail the reaction, she'll dismantle your gun. Try to hit cn_B just as she grabs you and you'll CQC her back, leaving her vulnerable. Throw her to the ground by tapping cn_B and pushing the control stick in a direction.

2) Beatdown. Simply do a three hit combo and she'll fall back. I found the best time to do this was after failing CQC, getting up and just punching her until she fell down.

3) Three quick tranquilizers. I only managed to pull this off once, but if you can get three shots on her without her firing back, she'll topple over.

After your two shots, run a distance a way and crawl. She'll get up and take off. If you have the Mosin Nagant, you can raise yourself while still in cover (hold cn_RB for first person mode, then hold cn_LT and cn_RT to raise up) hold cn_LB to scope, and score a free hit while she's looking for you.

As soon as her stamina depletes, she drops the Snake camouflage.
