The boss in question here is Kaine when she goes berzerk in the Lost Shrine.

I wouldn't attempt this on the first playthrough. Try it later, when your stats have increased significantly. I did it on my second play, on the Easy difficulty.

While she's on the wall, spam Dark Blast on her, blocking when she shoots the waves of bullets at you. Don't worry about dodging, you'll get knocked back that way and it will slow you down significantly. Eventually, you'll get her down to a sliver of life, at which point you must jump up and hit her with a weapon to stun her.

While stunned (when the timer is counting down), spam Dark Blast on her (don't use melee) until she's finished off.

Achievement pops after any following cutscenes and dialogue segments.

There is a save point before the battle prior to this one, so if you think you just missed the time threshold, reload. You can also just attempt on yet another playthrough, as you'll be even stronger.

Good luck!
