    Your final encounter with the Colossus will be in chapter 4 and once you defeat him, you will earn this achievement.

    It will bounce around from column to column throwing chunks of church at you. You need to charge your glaive with fire from the burning rubble and then hit the Colossus with it to make it fall to the ground. At this point, you must run up to it and press whichever button it tells you to. Once you've done this 3 times, it will start charging around on the floor. Just keep shooting it and hitting it with your fire-charged glaive and it should die fairly quickly.

    porschephiliacJust before you exit the area after the bridge, there is a weapons upgrade that has the antidote in mixed with your rounds. Pick it up and back track to the black market and use the upgrade. It makes the big guy go boom much faster.

    Tm5kYes, Enferon rounds are a must-have upgrade for whichever guns you decide to keep. Also, there is an electrical charge spot up high at the back of the cathedral. I'm not sure if an electrically charged power-throw hurts the Colossus more than a flame charged power-throw, but it does stun him for a moment. Just don't get by a giant chunk of stone while you're aiming your glaive at the lightning rod. It might be an instant death (on Brutal, anyway). Ouch.

    olde fortran 77When the Colossus is hanging on the columns, it seemed like I could only set him on fire when he was on a column close to me. He never caught fire when I hit him on the far side of the cathedral.
    Also, after he is ablaze and falls to the floor, I had to get to one side of him before it would tell me which button to press. It wouldn't do it if I was behind it.
