    This is pretty straight forward... you'll get this at the end of the DLC. Yes you guessed right: after defeating the "final boss".

    I don't want to spoil too much, but hints that might help you against the boss (i did it with my infiltrator on insane):

    1) you need to focus on those orbs that keep moving to the columns. Doesn't matter what else is going on, first stop those orbs.
    ARC PROJECTOR is your friend (so equip it when entering the Atlas Station) as it will hit several orbs at same time and with two shots you can kill 2 or more orbs, if you hit them when they are still close to the core.
    2) after destroying those orbs, the VI core will be exposed for a short period for you to shoot it. after certain amount of damage the fight goes back to point 1)
    3) you'll get geth spawns from time to time. finish them quickly to continue focusing on the orbs.

    and that's about it. it's not a hard fight. as i mentioned, i used a lvl30 infiltrator mainly using the arc projector and that SMG i got from kazumis DLC. my special skill is reave but i didn't even have to use it.

    EDIT: i'd appretiate feedback from everyone, specially negative voters to know what's wrong with the solution.

    Phoenix C64the widow is a sniper rifle, not an assault rifle.
    while i agree it's awesome against armor, the reload time and switching weapon back to SMG (or whatever you chose against the orbs shields) make the widow a quite bad choise in this fight in my opinion.

    PSUConnFor the orbs you really do need to stick with the arc projector. 2 well aimed shots will take all of them out before the geth can overtake you on Insanity. Excellent solution.

    This achievement cannot be missed and will pop after you have defeated the final boss. In this case that is the VI.

    It is a two step process to defeat the VI.

    1. Shoot the orbs around the VI
    2. Once orbs are destroyed, core will be briefly vulnerable, shoot at it

    Spawns will occur and you need to clean them up quickly. This is a fairly easy fight.
