    To get this achievement Knives must be at least level 11 to unlock the head stomp ability. To get this achievement easily go to the level subspace highway at the bottom right part of the map. Go through the first part normally grab the sword of love on the cloud and do Gideon's 1st phase normally. After you're done with his first phase when he gets near you want to start head stomping his arms or heart. To do the head stomp ability jump up in the air and hit Y and once you bounce off the enemy keep hitting Y while you're in the air to do the move again and again on either Gideons arms while he is covering his heart or you can do it after he smashes the ground and reveals his heart. This may take some tries to do it since Gideon sometimes likes to get into a pattern of just punching you again and again once you get up. Here's a video from a guide for the 360 version that still works (Video has been time-stamped to show just this achievement)
    Note: All of your head stomps cannot be interrupted and all head stomps must do damage or else it won't count if you just hit them while they're guarding or in an immune phase.

    SpectacleRedAnyone else having problems with this not unlocking?

    After a few attempts, I managed to do 12-13 headstomps on Gideon TWICE with Knives, but the achievement didn't unlock.

    TopherXPwns@RiotOfWordsRVA, I noticed I wouldn't be credited if I took a hit in between stomps. There was a few times I was able to recover in air, stomp again but not get the achievement.

    ChucklestyleWorst achievement in the game. I went through 5 lives trying to get this at Gideon. Either I'd stop stomping for no reason or he'd move when I hit 9.

    A way to make this easier is to connect a second controller and have ramona join as player 2. use her striker with left bumper so you get hypermode. that way you move faster, so you can get more hits in quicker and can't be interrupted. that way i managed to unlock this easily during the phase where he had his arms down, as the red skulls he shoots don't cancel your streak anymore.

    VimtyI found you can easily reach him during the lightning attack, giving you a massive window of opportunity
