This achievement is much easier with a co-op partner. The first survival boss happens on wave six. Once the fight starts make sure you don't use and grenades or level traps. What I did was pick the shank character with the chainsaw and shotgun. Both weapons do a decent amount of damage to the boss. Now you and your co-op partner need to just unload on him. Hopefully he will concentrate on one person and the other can just blast away. Remember that the boss is quick so always keep moving to avoid his attacks and grabs. Don't be afraid to run from him and heal yourself with tequila either if need be. The other good thing about having a partner is being able to revive each other if one person goes down. Just keep at it, avoiding his attacks and you should have him down in no time.

The method I found to be the easyist would be as follows:

First: ld choose any character that has +to shank and/or ranged damage. I used Cezar which you can unlock by beating the game on hard mode. He has a healthy + to all damage at the cost of some health. The weapons to use are the Shotgun tons of power and still decent range (used alot) and anything but the chainsaw as the chainsaw anamation is slow and will most likely get you hit once or twice (the heavy weapon is not used much but why risk it)

Second: Play on the Farm map it has 3 evenly spaced levels for easy escapes and ladders on either side which are benifical when ur health is low and ur useing ranged weapons. The boat level is not recomended because it has too many sub levels that escapeing becomes pretty annoying as the boss is much bigger than normal enemies.

Once you reach wave 6 the boss will arrive. If you are confident in your level of health (as the bosses attacks will take 1/4-1/3 of your health ex. with one of his kicks) get in close and hit him with the x,x,x combo and immedeately press the right stick towards the boss causing you to roll under his attack and keep doing this as long as your health is above 1/2 or whichever you are comfortable with.

Once your health is running low you can either shoot a bird and hope for health, or buy it from the store. If you still have a countdown timer for tequila keep your distance and use shotgun attacks. This is where I found the ladders handy. You can grab and hang onto one as the boss walks towards you and not worry about stepping too close to the boss when useing the left stick to aim. Once the boss is too close for your liking jump up to the higher level run past him and repeat on the far wall. Repeat untill you can buy more health ans go back in close or continue the ranged assault untill he is dead.
