You may fire the Enigma at any time before time runs out, but it is required after you defeat the 4 Mavericks on the left before time runs out.

When the Enigma fires, there are two possible outcomes:
-The Enigma laser slices right through the colony, destroying it. This is the least likely of the two outcomes, and normally only occurs if you collect all 4 parts.

-The Enigma laser does not destroy the colony. This will happen more often than the first one, even if you have all 4 parts, so make sure to beat the first 4 inmediately for a higher success rate of destroying the Space Colony, preferrably without any continues used.

EDIT: I just got it. Still, the chances are very slim here. I played on normal using black Zero, defeat the intro stage and fire the Enigma right after.

EDIT 2: For some reason, I managed to pull it off twice in a row now, while this is definitely an RNG achievement.
The trick this time. I killed myself multiple times until the timer reached 9 hours, took down 3 of the 4 on the left and 2 on the right. Including the fight with Dynamo, this leaves you with 3 hours. Depending on who was saved last on the left (mine was Izzy glow), destroy the Maverick and with a bit of luck, the Enigma might destroy the colony (it did here, keep in mind, it's still RNG).

If you're one of those poor saps who likes to downvote for no good reason, at least have the courage to leave a comment if you do so,

This is a completely RNG or Random achievement. My method unlocked the achievement within 45 minutes. However, the RNG for others could differ.

1.) Start a new Mega Man X5 game (English U.S. Edition & ensure Rookie Mode is OFF).

2.) Game Start on the Main Menu.

3.) Make sure X is highlighted and enter the following command on the D-Pad (Up, Up, Down, Down, Down, Down, Down, Down, Down, Down, Down) / (Up twice and Down 9 times). This will grant you the Ultimate Armor, and make fighting enemies much easier. If done correctly you will hear a power up type of sound, and the opening/intro stage you will see X in the armor.

4.) Once you are introduced to the first 4 enemies to acquire the Enigma parts, choose Cresent Grizzly/Grizzly Slash. Giga Attack him (RT on your controller) to make the fight easier. Once you defeat Grizzly, SAVE.

5.) Choose Tidal Whale/Duff McWhalen as your next choice. Defeat him with Grizzly's weapon. Once defeated, SAVE.

Dynamo will now attack the base. In my opinion, this is where the game will decide if the colony will be destroyed or not by the Enigma.

6.) Simply Giga Attack (RT) Dynamo, and once defeated; choose STAGE SELECT. Do Not SAVE!!!!

7.) On the Maverick selection screen, LB twice to view Enigma Status & Enigma Shot. Choose to fire the Enigma Shot.

8.) If it fails, Alia will say "Negative, we only destroyed 62% of the colony". If successful, the colony will be destroyed and achievement will unlock.

9.) If it fails, hit your home button on the controller and restart the game. Load the save up, and it will be the Dynamo fight again. Defeat Dynamo again and STAGE SELECT. Do Not SAVE! Fire the Enigma shot again. Continue this process until it destroys the colony.

Good Luck!
