No spoilers!

Through normal story progression, Nier receives a clue to investigate the junk heap. This culminates in a boss battle. If the boss is defeated in less than four and a half minutes, the achievement will unlock.

The boss battle occurs in four phases. During the first phase, Nier depletes the boss's health. When its health is close to zero, in phase 2, the boss will take to the air out of your range. He will pummel you with junk and your only recourse is to dodge. When the boss exhausts the junk at its disposal, it will descend back in range. Your objective during phase 3 is to destroy its wings using Dark Blast or Dark Lance. When you destroy its wings, it will be grounded leaving you to conclude the fight in the fourth and final phase. If you defeat it within four and a half minutes, the achievement will unlock.

As with similar timed fights, make sure you skip the cut scenes. Accordingly, you might want to fight the boss twice--once viewing the cut scenes and the second skipping them reverting to a save that you made just before the fight. Also, this fight recurs for each walkthrough--working towards the A, B, C, and D endings. Nier will be progressively stronger during each walkthrough until he reaches max strength. So, depending on how fast you have been leveling up--a personal choice--you may want to defer getting this achievement for a later playthrough when Nier is at a level where he can more quickly defeat this boss. On the other hand, if you have leveled up Nier rapidly, the achievement can readily be obtained in a first playthrough.
