    This is awarded for clearing the Mr. Tomassi mission (beating Tomassi for a second time).

    *Edit* I just saw that Mortifervs has added a separate solution that covers getting to the mission in the first place (thanks). So I'm adding here to improve the guide:
    1) Mission to defeat Mr. Tomassi (again), becomes available during Finnish Tango main story mission.
    2) To get it, talk to Emily Pope in Board Room / Central Executive.
    3) Get to Turntable / Containment.
    4) Room with Mr. Tomassi is on your left, when you first enter Turntable.
    5) Kill Mr. Tomassi.
    6) To get achievement and skill points, talk to Emily Pope again.
    Here's how to beat the mission:

    Mods
    I left this achievement until last so I had the best mods available. I equipped three health boost mods (two level 4 and one level 5).

    Weapon
    I only used Pierce when attacking Tomassi, with rate of fire, reload speed and damage mods. Shatter is a good back up weapon for the other enemies.

    Hiding spot
    There's a great hiding spot under the walkway on the right hand side, in a little alcove. Tomassi can't hit you from here but you can hit him. From here, it becomes a lot easier to manage the other enemies, and you'll be able to gather health drops fairly easily. When the Hiss Distorted (invisible shrieking things) show up, make sure you kill them as soon as possible.

    Bonus tip - bring a healer
    In the Turntable room before you go into Sterling Awe, a Hiss Cluster sometimes spawns. If it does, knock its health down but don't kill it. Seize it and it'll be able to follow you into the boss fight and heal you as long as it stays alive.

    I found this by far the hardest achievement. It's a horrible, frustrating fight and took me about 20 tries...good luck smile

    pukem0nn@Ttsipov has the right tactic. Couldn't beat Tomassi 20 times, levitated up to the top and stayed there, easiest thing ever. Just use Launch and Charge and it's pretty easy.

    RUSTYR1NGJust hid in the alcove under the stairs and used charge splash damage to kill him. Fired either against the rock in front, the wall to the left through the gap in the stairs or up high and right depending on his position. Moved out twice when the waves came in to get health, and not get cornered by the adds. Beat him at the 3rd attempt.

    Narcotic Radar@Gnemlock I don't see your problem. The text from Mortifervs (who I credited) is to help people who can't find the mission in the first place. Why would I rewrite it? roll

    Settings - activate one-hit (just tip in the box).
    All enemies, including bosses, die with just 1 hit.
    Do it and the achievement is yours 🤘
    It took me 3 seconds to kill Mr. Tomassi

    After you finish killing all of the enemies, head back to Pope to talk with her. That will finish the side quest and the achievement will pop.

    Unexist2Underrated solution. Worked great, thanks.

    FHYSIQUESLol, this did not work for me. I killed everything but Tomassi health bar was still on my screen empty and I was stuck in the room alone with no achievement.
