    To get this you must activate Blue Beetle's character power by hitting cn_B. Then get your opponent's health down to about 10 percent. The Mandible Strike move is performed by hitting cn_left, cn_right, cn_A. You need at least one full meter bar to perform the meter burn version. To do it you have to hit the RT button at the right time during the move. I would hit RT at the same time as I hit the cn_A button. Basically I'm hitting cn_left, cn_right, cn_A + cn_RT.

    This can be done in local versus with 2 controllers.

    FifthmusketeerThanks for the solution. This last point is key: "I would hit RT at the same time as I hit the cn_A button. " The achievement was not unlocking until I tried what you said - i.e. "hitting cn_left, cn_right, cn_A + cn_RT".

    BrutalGuitarShould work fine in story mode but 2 player local versus is easiest since you won't have opposing A.I. working against you. Obviously you'll need 2 controllers for versus. If you don't have 2, then you'll have to try another mode.

    Celestial ToastThanks for the guide! If anyone is struggling with this what helped me was activating beetle's extended blades with the B button before imputing the above mentioned combo.

    Sky PonyThe advice in the guide, as well as in the comments, is wrong. You don't press RT and A at the same time. You press RT at the moment the attack connects. So, press B to activate spiky blade hands, then (facing right), input left, right, A. Blue Beetle will leap toward his opponent with his handblades out. At the moment the attack connects, THEN hit RT. You can launch the attack from a good distance away, and doing so might make the timing a bit easier if you're still struggling.
