    This achievement is obtained in the last mission. You fight the final boss here. To kill him, just shoot. He has two phases before he dies. Simply shooting him with powerful weapons will work. Use cover to avoid his BFG shot. If the BFG shot can "see" you, you will get hurt, or die if you're close enough.

    After you kill him, go back and use one of the elevators you took to get to the boss. Then look around for escape pods. One of their doors will be open. Go inside one and press the button to leave.

    Note: The achievements for this game only unlock in Single Player, and on any difficulty.

    This final achievement is story related and cannot be missed. You will obtain it once you complete the game. All you must do is complete Unit 9: Palace and Unit 10: Final Showdown, which consist of these maps:

    Unit 9:
    Outer Courts
    Lower Palace
    Upper Palace

    Unit 10:
    Inner Chamber
    Final Showdown

    This can be done on any difficulty. The other solutions and my included videos will show you different strategies for fighting the Makron.

    Credit for videos goes to the YouTube uploader; they are not mine. Despite the uploader labeling it as a single unit, it is normally considered 2.

    Save your BFG ammo and 1x quad damage (and if you want 1x "Invulnerability").

    Just activate your quad damage and shoot with your BFG until he is dead. I played without "Invulerabality" and still had full hp in the end.

    After you killed the boss go back to the elevator and use one of the escape pods.
