    Solo solution - Doable before the 1st nest of the second area.
    You can do it right after the 1st breeder fight, before first nest of the second area.

    Setup & upgrades nice to have after the first breeder fight :
    Class : Soldier - to improve your pistol damage points +20% to take down the rhino faster. No upgrade needed.
    Gun : I prefer the MP 443 - Upgraded twice to move faster, to incrase pistol damage points and to have bigger clip (to take down the rhino faster ;)
    Ammo : Your choice: Explosive ones help you to go trought the waves but armor piercing ones are better against the Rhino, you should upgrade it twice too to get more bullets at once.
    Support : Body armor - Upgraded twice or more. Throw it when you have a low health, it gives you few additionnal seconds to survive.
    Turret : Sentry/Vulture
    Equilizer : Riot shield - Buy one for the rhino fight and keep it in your back as it provide a good cover while your are running with the rhino.
    Relic : None ;)

    Fight your way trought the first area and win your first fight against the breeder, then quickly run to the bulding in the back, you should see a rhino on the rooftop :
    CanadianWhizKid points out in the comments : The Rhino will appear on top of the building with the trap on the 2nd floor, and the locker room on the main floor.

    ==> Shoot him fast at least once so he do not run away ... now you are alone against the Rhino without any other annoying alien. Fast & easy !
    ==> Take caution to avoid shooting explosie barrels, if the blast damage the rhino the achievement is voided !


    From my point of view that is the first Rhino encountered on this map.

    In coop, you can also do it there, this is a way easier than solo as one of the player can block the rhino with the riot shield.

    EDIT : It looks like you have to be fast and lucky, I do not spot the rhino at each try !

    CanadianWhizKidYup, worked for me. The Rhino will appear on top of the building with the trap on the 2nd floor, and the locker room on the main floor.

    I shot him so he would jump down, and then I ran circles around the forklift and boxes right in front.

    Shadow 00 FoxCan definitely confirm you can use supports to damage the Rhino.... I used a vulture and it did most of the damage.

    To get this achievement, the Rhino must take damage from ONLY pistols. This means that the Rhino CANNOT take any damage from turrets, sentries, vultures, traps, grenades, weapons, SOFLAM, etc… Also, only the player who delivers the final killing hit to the Rhino will get the achievement. It is recommended that you do this with a party of 4 players who you know, or solo. If any player damages the Rhino with something other than the Pistol, the achievement is voided for everyone.

    The easiest place to get this achievement is directly after clearing all the hives in Area 2. After clearing the hives, players want to make sure that they have no offensive abilities active, and that traps have been disabled. Now, once you enter the hallway that leads into Area 3, a single Rhino with no other enemies will spawn. Lure the Rhino into the open area and have all 4 players unload on it using their pistols. It is recommended that you use the automatic pistol with explosive ammo, and it should go down within 40 seconds. Once the Rhino dies, only the person who hit it last will get the achievement. It should be noted that this achievement can be done solo also.



    The achievement is also possible at other times during Area 2. The first Rhino will spawn from the ground during the 3rd hive of Area 2. It is advised that you immediately turn your sentries around, or don’t deploy them in the first place for this achievement. Also, using a flare will help take the attention of all the other smaller aliens that get in the way and damage you. Have the team focus fire to kill it as fast as possible before other enemies get in the way too much. A video guide of this method can be seen HERE.

    spxyu02I would just like to edit my comment and state that I went through with a group of 4 and a rhino did not spawn there. We went up there stairs as a loose group, and I think I only saw a scorpion, so it may be a solo-only guarantee.

    @Roose91 - For solo, I was weapon specialist with the full auto pistol. I can't remember if I'd been using regular or explosive ammo. Was also running armor, riot shield and vulture. Upgraded weapon specialist fully first to support my LSAT from the first area and help moving the breeder at the end of the first area. From there upgraded ammo/armor back and forth, then a point into riot shield for 15 hits, and some points into vulture, eventually maxing that out too.

    I'm not sure that's the best solo loadout though. Some have suggested medic (upgraded to ignore scorpion gunk fumes) and using an IMS in place of the vulture.

    Maka91It will spawn there about 80% of the time only.

    Out of my 8 playthroughs, it spawned there 7 times.

    Shadow 00 FoxDownvote for inaccurate solution, and not best method...

    Edit: I have confirmed that it does work if it gets hit by turrets/vultures/traps. I was playing in a group of three, and we flat out destroyed this Rhino. It walked through fire traps, got hit by my vulture, and my friends turret. The only thing was that we were NOT using primary weapons. We only had pistols. My friend got the last hit in with his pistol and he still got the achievement. So I can confirm for myself that you can actually use abilities and traps on it. Hope this makes it easier for some people!!

    I would like to add this here, and I would like someone to confirm this for me. I was playing solo (pistols only) and had started the second hive in the second area. At that point, a Rhino arrived. Now, I had a turret down, and I know FOR A FACT that it was shooting it because that Rhino went down pretty fast, considering I am on a pistol only run. However, I don't know if it was just a lucky glitch on my part or if you can in fact damage it with a turret and still get the achievement. That was my experience with it and I would encourage people to try it, maybe some others will get this achievement easily like I did. I would much appreciate feedback!
