    There's a trick to getting this and any other no-hit boss kill achievement.

    Dead Cells has a sort of quick save/save state system. This is at any time you press cn_guide, the game will save at exactly that point wherever you are. The moment you die, this save feature is disabled so if you press cn_guide, dashboard, and quit the game you will continue off the last time you pressed cn_guide while alive. If you never did, you will restart at the very start of whatever level you made it to. This trick will allow you to retry for the no-hit achievement without having to restart from the beginning of the game.

    note: if you get hit, you want to be completely DEAD before pressing cn_guide, or else you will create a save and void the achievement for that run.

    Time Keeper is maybe the easiest no-hit boss to get if RNG was on your side with weapons

    My suggestions:

    Weapon:
    ranged weapons
    x2 throwing knives are really good (like super good)
    multiple knocks bow + ice blast or ice bow is also a good combo

    Traps:
    1 or 2 double crossbow-o-matics (these tend to mess him up real bad)
    1 wolf trap

    Mutations:
    ammunition
    support
    (your choice for 3rd)

    obviously you want to have the blacksmith +, ++, and S chances as high as you can get.

    there's 1 break this guy will give you during the fight where he stops allowing you to press cn_guide, but that might not even be necessary. using 2 throwing knives and a single double crossbow-o-matic, I killed him in less than 10 seconds on the easiest difficulty.

    The only thing that might get you is his throwing stars or if he hooks you with his throwing knife. Otherwise its possible to kill him before he can attack if you can lock him up with wolf traps and high level weapons.
