You will get this by playing through the story. It happens the first time you enter Town 1, where the church is under attack.

Use long-range attacks. Dash (RT) and hit X, or stand still, hold RT, and hit X for a more powerful shot. Dodge around to help avoid the flame thrower.

About half-way through he will change his tactics a little. When he starts firing multiple shots right at you, just stay still and use RB to block. As soon as he is done, try to get in a charged shot (stop, RT, X). He will zoom up in the area. Stop and hold RT to be charged. As soon as you see movement (I believe it shows him up there firing some dots), press X to start the energy ball. This should give you the proper timing to really nail him as he desceneds, and still be able to rush (RT) out of the way before he rams you.

He'll repeat the multiple projectile attacks. Block, then repeat. When he's low, you can get in close and do some final damage. The achievement will unlock after he is defeated.

The other guide is good, but here is the thing about the Tempest fight: depending how you fight this guy, you could seriously screw yourself out of this achievement

Zone of the Enders HD CollectionDamage ControlThe Damage Control achievement in Zone of the Enders HD Collection worth 122 pointsEarn an A Rank in all 5 rescue missions

Tempest will destroy the area you are in if you let him, and that damage does not get magically repaired once you leave the area. After the fight you will have to go back and do a rescue mission, saving civilians and buildings from enemies. If Tempest wrecks the town, then you are S O L in regards to the rescue mission.

This requires that you control this boss and manipulate his attacks as much as possible. The hardest part is the first half of the fight, as Tempest is slow moving and appears in between a crap loud of buildings. I rushed him with melee attacks to get his health down to half, which initiates the second battle. I think I lost one building during that bit (his fire attack is cheap as hell).

After you get to the halfway mark, Tempest will start firing various projectiles and this "Death From Above" manuever where he goes up, and tries to crash down on top of you. This is where you want to manipulate him to spare as many structures as possible.

In the middle of this area is a canal structure. Get in there. Stay in there. Tempest will come crashing down on you and not touch any neighboring buildings. After he touches down, move up to his head where you can spam attacks on him (burst or normal - whatever you want). Rinse and repeat several more times and he is down.

And bonus! The SOS mission you take part in next will not be an impossible venture because Tempest did not destroy everything like a douche. Win-Win.

For those that need something more visual, here is a video by Admiral Vic demonstrating the strat.
