First off, even though it's not required, I recommend that you play through the game at least once to familiarize yourself with the game mechanics and how to control the Vital Suits (VS) before you try for this achievement. For the purposes of this solution I am going to assume that you have beaten the game at least once.

Second, make sure your difficulty is set on Easy.

Third, every boss has more attacks than the ones I listed, I just mention the main ones to watch out for. Most of the time you should finish the fight before you see the majority of the attacks each boss has.

Finally, since this is all about speed the path you will take is going to be essentially the same no matter what. Here is how your battles should go:

01a Godon

First, if for any reason Godon starts to roll around the arena just start over. That roll takes forever and you don't want to miss the achievement by a few seconds because of something the first boss does.

Start by moving to your left and getting into the VS and as soon as you gain control of the VS jump and hover to the other side of the arena and attach the Shotgun sitting near the data post. Now with your Gatling Gun and Shotgun just circle around to Godon's tail and unleash both weapons. The shotgun deals massive damage to this boss (almost every boss actually) as well as stuns him occasionally. Should Godon turn and face you just keep circling around to his tail and fire at it as soon as possible, when he's dead make sure to stay in your VS. For reference, I finished this battle in 31 seconds.

02a GTF-11i

This battle should be very quick thanks to the Shotgun you carried with you from your previous battle. There's only one thing to watch for in this battle and that is the left hand weapon this boss carries. It is a laser that will stun your VS as well as dealing a fair amount of damage. Fortunately before the laser is about to be used you can see the weapon open up a couple seconds before it fires. To avoid the laser just jump and hover until the attack ends.

All I did with this battle is all out rush firing both weapons at all times. When I seen the laser open I jumped and hovered while firing both weapons and finished this battle during my hover. Don't worry about any damage you sustained in this fight, we are trading our VS for a new one in the next round. I finished this battle in 18 seconds for a total time of 49 seconds.

03b Greeneye

Despite the large size of Greeneye he is very simple on this difficulty. Attacks to watch out for will be when the boss rears up on its hind legs. It will either stomp the ground and stun your VS or it will start shooting chunks of ice at you. Either of them can be dodged by jumping and hovering around as soon as you see he is on his hind legs and you can also shoot the ice. Don't worry too much if you're getting hit by the ice, while you don't want your VS destroyed (it more than likely won't happen, if it does get in the other one ASAP) the main thing is to keep damaging this boss.

Right away you want to get out of the VS you start in and get in the one immediately to your right, it is equipped with 2 Gatling Guns that are more than enough for this battle. As soon as possible start shooting at the 4 "eyes" on the side facing you. Start with the biggest one and work your way down, as soon as one bursts move to the next. When you burst the 4th and smallest eye on this side quickly dash around the boss to its other side and repeat the process all over. When all 4 eyes are destroyed on each side of the boss 4 more eyes will appear on it's head. Shoot them until they all burst (you can hover during this part for a better angle but it's not required) and finally 1 large eye will appear on the head. It's just more of the same, keep shooting this last eye and this boss will be dead. This battle took me 1:30 which is actually a bit slow, my total time at this point is 2:19.

04c PTX-40A-2

Ideally you don't want to get hit with any attack but the main one to avoid with this boss is the electricity based attack where he dashes across the map, it's very strong and will stun you wasting precious seconds. It seems that he uses it mostly when you are in close range of him and you are fighting in between all the pillars. With that being said the boss at this difficulty shouldn't pose much of a problem.

Start off by dashing forward and then turn left as soon as you get close to the first row of pillars. Get out of your current VS and get into the new one sitting there, this VS already has a Shotgun equipped. Now move straight ahead and equip the shotgun on the floor to your left arm so you have 2 Shotguns. If possible, get the boss into one of the open areas on either side of the arena, where you started or preferably where he started. What I did after I equipped the second shotgun was just waited in his spawn for him to rush me and when he did I just kept circling him while shooting both shotguns. During this battle I took almost no damage and that is with me really only concentrating on dealing damage instead of avoiding it. I ended this battle in 1:00 for a total time of 3:19.

05a DBS-000XM

This is the final boss of the main game and similar to the campaign he is a complete joke compared to the other battles. I say don't worry about ANY attack this boss has because you have plenty of health and your attacks deal an insane amount of damage to him so this battle won't last long. The attacks you want to use are the ones you do by holding the left or right trigger for 1-2 seconds, I personally used the left trigger (horizontal slash) only.

Start off by rushing straight at him while holding your preferred trigger button and when you get close let it go. When you hit him he will dash away from you in some random direction, when he does just chase him while charging up your trigger and when you get close let it go. Every hit takes around 1/3 of his life bar but I believe it takes 4 hits to actually kill him. I somehow missed him with my first 2 attacks and still finished the battle in 51 seconds for a total time of 4:10.

As you can see there is definitely room for error during these battles so if your VS gets destroyed at any time or a battle takes what seems like too much time just keep playing. You never know, you may still finish under 5 minutes.

Realistically, if you're familiar with the game this achievement will probably only take a few tries at most. Good luck, hope this helps!
