    If like me you completed the game before getting the achievement go to the combat challenges and select the first Rumble in the Jungle challenge.

    Reach round 4. Clear all the goons out in round 4 but leave the titan. Place explosive gel on the ground, allow the titan to run into it, then just pound away.

    Apparently explosive gel is not a gadget.

    Mystic Typh00nWhen you pop the achievement the description says "Without using your batarang" So I guess you can use anything you want besides the batarang.

    It slows them down and makes it easier.

    TheSinful JokerAnother method of doing this is to kill all goons then jump over beast, attack, jump over again and repeat unil beat.

    I got this achievement once I’d deactivated the pumps in the east and west pump rooms. When you return to the pressure control junction a Titan will rip his way through one of the lift doors. Keep your distance from him so you can encourage him to charge. When he charges make sure you are standing in front of one of the electric gates and as late as possible dodge out of the way. With any luck he will run into the gate and stun himself. If you dodge too early he’ll stop in time and won’t be stunned. Use this chance to attack him but stop after the initial flurry or he’ll get a hit in on you. After this, some generic bad guys will appear. Do your best to repeat this tactic once these guys have been taken out. Rinse and repeat until the Titan is down. Intermittently (probably twice) you will get the chance to ride the Titan. When you do this you should be able to get the Freakshow Rodeo achievement too if you spend some time harming the henchmen atop your crazy, crazy horse. Most important thing to remember is not to use your gadgets at all. Just don’t risk it.

    This isn’t necessarily the easiest way to get the achievement, just an alternative in case you miss the earlier time that Wottstar83 explained.

    To summarise:

    Stand in front of the electric gates when the Titan charges and dodge out the way as late as possible. Hopefully he’ll run past you and get stunned so you can beat him down. Repeat.

    No gadgets.

    A easy way to get Mano-A-Mano Achievement if you missed it durring the story.

    1. Levels 1-3 you want to clear out the bad guys quickly
    2. Level 4 clear out the bad guys so its just you and the Titan
    3. Equip you explosive gel and apply to the floor
    4. Back up and let the Titan run over the explosive gel, it will be stunned.
    5. Hit x till you beat the shit out of the Titan and get those 10 GamerScore points :)
