    This guide is definitely recommended for those who do not own the "Dawn of the Rise of the Fallen Machines" content:

    I did this on the final mission "This Ends Here". Thanks to mcnichoj for suggesting the mission.

    You are tasked with stopping 4 waves of Fizzco bots. During this time you should not be using the Charge Beam, but instead be using other useful weapons such as the Fizzbot Rifle (4 stars). I recommend having the "Second Amendment" amp enabled for these weapons when in use.

    After you complete the 4 waves, two Tank Bots will spawn, and they will be highlighted as the mission objective. Focus on killing just one using the Charge Beam weapon.

    When you've killed the one bot, kill yourself and respawn for the Tank Bots to spawn again. Rinse and repeat.

    Note: If you kill both Tank Bots, a cutscene will trigger, you will reach a new checkpoint, and you will have to restart the mission if you wish to kill more bots.

    You need to buy the Charge Beam from TwoHat Jack and then hunt down these guys:

    (The giant one on the right. This is the best picture I could find.)
    Charge Beam requires you to hold the right trigger to charge it for a couple seconds and then shoots out a continuous beam for a short period before having to charge again. Maxed out gun almost kills them with one charged beam.

    If you have the new Robot DLC you can go to half of the missions to get this done. I prefer Buck National vs Robot Apocalypse. Do the required steps until the Tank Bot comes and then pull out your Charge Beam to kill it. You should be able to get three of them killed per run. So two runs with each run being three minutes.

    If you don't have the DLC you can still do this with the base game. I know the final mission "This is the End" spawns two after you destroy a bunch of other Fizzco bots.
    If anyone knows of a better main game mission, please let me know.

    Ok so this is slightly confusing on how they worded the description. They mean the tank bots. Kill 6 of them and this is yours.
