This achievement is awarded for defeating 'The Guardian' Boss.

Despite it's size, the fight is pretty easy if you keep a level head. The fight is split into two sections, one for destroying each arm.

Hammer Hand- the Guardian will use it's right arm to try and smash you into pulp. Simply ride despair clockwise (or to the left from your perspective) around the guardian and use the dash/dodge button (Default RB) to avoid the hammer strike. Although the guardian's 'tell' animation for this seems quite lengthy as it raises it's arm to strike, dash/dodge as soon as it starts or you will be caught in the blow. Once dodged, the guardian takes a few seconds to extract his hammer from the ground- use your gun 'Redemption' in aim mode to hit one of the bomb flowers on it's forearm and the guradian will enter a crippled state for a short while with it's arm in pieces. Jump off despair and run up to the Guardian's shoulder piece, where you can see one of the Maker's heart stones you went to so much trouble previously to get for it. Switch Redemption for the Deathgrip Item and use it to haul yourself up the stone and attack it. You will need a couple of attempts at this before you destroy the arm.

Bomb Hand- Now the Guardian will use it's left arm in a slightly more difficult attack. It will launch a giant spinning, homing bomb at you. You need to shoot this with your gun from horseback (you can dodge the bombs with Despair's Dash if required, but the bomb must be very close for this to work). After enough bullets have smacked into the bomb, it will be stop chasing you and rise into the air. At this point you need to use your horse to get the guardian between you and the bomb. After a few seconds the bomb will launch directly at you, but will hopefully hit the guardian instead. This will cause the guardian to enter a downed state. Gallop over to his left arm and climb up the forearm (you will see the standard wooden bits you use for climbing, on it's vambrace), once as high as you can go, you will need Death-grip to get you up onto the heart stone to your left and slightly above and attack it. Again you will need to do this at least twice before the stone is destroyed. The Guardian may loose two bombs at you after your first attempt, just calmly take them both out, it's no biggie.
