No Spoilers!

During normal story progression, Nier goes to the city of Facade. There, events unfold resulting in a boss battle. If the boss is defeated within three and a half minutes, the achievement will unlock.

The boss will have its minions to assist. Defeat them quickly using melee or Dark Hand attacks. The boss is very quick and is adept at evasion. So, you will have to combine ranged attacks using Dark Lance with close combat attacks like Dark Hand. The challenge is to land attacks. When successful, the boss is not very robust and will quickly succumb. If the minions and the boss are defeated within three 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.
