    Very Very Easy way, at any difficulty level !!
    In the chapter 10 "same area in the video post by UndertakerAndre" when the brute jump out, just run back to the door !! the brute can not cross the door so he turn back and you can shot him in the front and in the back with your favorite weapon !! enjoy

    I don't know if this was pure luck, but on your first easy playthrough just stasis it once, shoot a detonator straight at his shoulder, instant death.

    The first brute appears in the transport hub in chapter 6. He will jump down into the arena-like area with you and start to perform charge attacks. Face him head on, and then as he begins to charge you, run toward him but an angle to one side or the other so that you pass each other. Wheel around and stasis the brute from behind and begin blasting the knee joint on one of his legs.

    When it gives out he will get up and start shooting exploding organic bombs at you from his chest. Catch the first bomb with telekinesis and fire it back at him. While he is stunned switch to the line gun and shoot its alt-fire mine at his feet. From here just continue to play pitch and catch with the bombs and replace the line gun mine at his feet whenever it detonates. He will not move anymore and, as long as you don't fail to catch one of his bombs, cannot damage you.

    If you're struggling with the bombs use more stasis to reduce the number of bombs he can launch in the time it takes to kill him. If you get hit by a charge attack during the first stage, restart the checkpoint, which will be just prior to his jumping into the transport hub.

    DresdenDilGood solution man, I was going to point out that there is one of those "stasis bombs" behind you when the Brute drops. It lasts ages and is a big help in saving your own stasis

    Nick KevlarThumbs Up! Only thing I'd change is that I ran sideways when he charged. It also may be beneficial to add that he cannot charge through the pillars on the outside. I was able to use the alt-fire mines as you stated, but didn't bother to catch the bombs he throws at you, I just ducked behind cover to avoid the damage. Thanks!

    MetroidkillahAlternately, you can use the Javelin Gun. Its electrical alt-fire (if improved a little) is fairly powerful, and you don't even have to worry about hitting the weak spots. Don' forget to use stasis.

    But yes, Chapter 6 is where I got the cheev, as well.

    Chapter 13

    I personally think that this would be the easiest brute to get the achievement on. You hopefully have upgrades to some guns and your stasis module.

    You will be in a large rectangular room at the very tell end of the level (comes after fighting a large number of guys on the two catwalks above this room.)

    There is a BLUE STASIS container in the room. When the brute attacks, launch the container at it. He will now be frozen for what seems like half a minute(exact duration of container unknown to me)

    Using the detonator mines, launch them at the brutes feet. should take 6-8 mines without upgrades and 3-4 mines fully upgraded. either way this brute can be killed before it regains movement. if it does come out of stasis, one blast from your stasis module should give you enough time to launch the last mine(s).

    alternatively: use 4-5 contact beam shots to one arm.

    should work great, however if you NEED to give a negative vote, please explain your reason, so i can post better solutions in the future. Thanks

    On level 6 on easy drop 3 mines in close proximity to one another, about the width of the brute stand behind them he charges at you through the mines he dies straight away job done.

    Location: Chapter 06, Transport Hub
    Difficulty: Any (Zealot relates to this strategy)
    Weapon used in this strategy: Ripper (No upgrades - it will do surprisingly great)
    Ammunition: About five Ripper Blades (Number relates to upgrade state)
    Statis Packs: 0-3 (only one needed if Stasis is fully upgraded; None needed when Stasis Canister is used)

    Strategy: Move in front of the Brute and get into combat with it. In combat use Stasis on it (about only five times). Cut on the yellow infected flesh of its body continually until one limb is off. Yeah, it is dead - and that efficiently brought down!

    Alternative use of Stasis: A special Stasis Canister can be found in this area (To the right of CEC door). Target will remain frozen for 57 seconds on hard contact.

    Additional chances: In Chapter 10 you will encounter two more Brutes. In Chapter 13 you will also encounter one Brute in single combat. You may be even more powered up and even greater equipped when you are there. This may leave you another, and more simplified options of accomplishing this.

    Why make this any harder than it needs to be, if all you care about is getting the cheevo?

    I was playing on Zealot and was getting tagged at least once in the fight. So drop the difficulty down to easy.

    As mentioned in the other guides do this in chapter 6 when you meet Ellie again , this is right after the school.

    Now if you have some detonators quickly mine from the back where he jumps down to the door where you entered and stay there and let him charge, he will run right at you and through the mines ;) 3 or 4 should take him down before he is even close to you.

    As insurance stasis him and blast him from range between mines.

    I was also able to take him out just using stasis and javelin's and it's alt fire shock think before he got to me.

    Remember this is just to get the achievement, so quit to the menu and reload if you were playing on zealot !!!!!!!

    On Easy, Chapter 6, all you have to do is stasis him the second he lands, shoot the alt-fire from the line gun at his feet, if he starts to come out of stasis use it again to re-freeze. The mine will go off at his feet, he will be dead, and the achievement will pop. Simple as that.

    Got this one in the Severed DLC without even trying, at the beginning of Chapter 2 a brute will smash through a door, I lit it up with the flamethrower(which i'd been upgrading with power nodes the whole time)as soon as it busted through and it died pretty quick.
