This is based on the assumption you have already fought Nightmare twice and are relatively familiar with his previous attacks as well as the strategy of bashing the wheel to illuminate the area.

Watch out for the new attacks where Nightmare will climb onto the roof and 'net' you, or climb onto the roof and spew masses off ooze at you (which can be hit with the sword to deflect them)

When i got this achievement, i went into the fight having a relatively high DT gauge, 1/4 bars of health - equipped weapons were Alastor/Ebony & Ivory, i also had 1 health item in my inventory.

Begin by lighting up the wheel (i found it best to start by jumping and attacking the wheel to start with) then spam your pistol attacks while avoiding incoming attacks, keep spamming pistols until his rear core is exposed, then using Alastor and your DT goto town on the rear core - the majority of damage taken by the swirling ooze exiting nightmares rear should be negated by the health pulled back by having DT active.

As Nightmare reaches approx 60% damage, nightmare will release a spinning blade that swirls around him - to avoid this, just stay on the ground close to nightmares front section - off to the side (so your standing between where his head begins and the rest of the blob forms) - while avoiding this attack, continue to spam your pistol attacks (and relight the wheel as necessary) until his rear orb is completely damaged.

once his rear orb is damaged enough a cutscene will present and nightmare will have healed up a nice chunk of the health you previously stripped him of, its at this point i used my health item and went to town with DT & Alastor.
