    This fight can appear really daunting but it's actually pretty simple. Wait for the enemies to close in on you, as well as the bulldozer and throw a flashbang grenade. This will get rid of the enemies and weaken the bulldozers shadow barrier. Now focus your flashlight on the thing and just boost away. Try to stay on the bulldozers side and just keep turning with it.

    If you find yourself in a panic situation, like you get cornered, your flares can do a whole lot of damage but it's generally unecessary. Just pop batteries in that flashlight and burn its health away.

    EDIT: I've included a youtube link for this one so that people can see what fight I'm talking about.

    rafa1000housethis achievement shouldn't be showed as "missable" because you don't need to start another save file.

    misfit119I have no control over that. You'll want to post on the forums when it comes to achievement flags and the like.

    There is a cheeky way of doing this achievement, as said above you need to destroy the Dozer but if you can manage to kill all the Taken and keep dodging the Dozer, and get to the electric fence switch, activate it and get into the next area. The Dozer can't actually fit through the gap in the fence, so you can concentrate all your light on the vehicle now whilst it's trying to get to you. Don't forget to go back in the previous area to find all the available ammo/pick ups.

    In episode three you will encounter a bulldozer on a pretty large area. You MUST destroy it to get the achievement.

    Simply use your flashlight and/or other "light-tools" to destroy it. It takes a while but it's not that hard, even though i made it on the hard difficulty. There is three lockers in the area with items such as batteries.
