If you missed this achievement on your first playthrough you can fire it up from Chapter Select - Chapter 2-3. Note that there is no difficulty requirement for this achievement so you can happily set the difficulty for Casual.

This Chapter starts with a few fights down a corridor. At the end of the corridor is a door to a large arena with two large Argus robots. The nearest robot will be on four legs (quadruped) while the far robot will be on two legs.

The achievement is given for destroying BOTH robots while they are in bipedal mode (standing up).

To accomplish this, you need to start by beating up on the quadruped robot (closest to you as you enter the arena). Follow the usual strategy of shooting out the weak points then blasting the Argus core when it's down. When it's health gets low, a QTE will trigger. There are two parts - the first where you must use RT, and the second (drill sequence) where you must spin the analog stick. You need to INTENTIONALLY FAIL the QTE - i.e. don't press anything and you should be fine. When the QTE fails, the Argus robot will transform into bipedal mode.

At this point you just need to finish the first robot off (it should have very little health left), then proceed to destroy the other one (which is already in bipedal mode), and the achievement should drop.
