rafa1000houseIt can be done on Legendary Coop. I was struggling to kill the invisible Elite, then I decided to ask one friend to help.

Ericmax69Randomly, when you hit him with a shot, the elite may turn and shout at you - this gives you the opportunity to land a few more. Normally happens near the start of his run, it helps you to take down his shield so you can kill him before he disappears.

Lord MidasTrying this on my own. Just feels nigh on impossible. Even when my crosshairs are on the dude I still seem to miss. Given up.

Ericmax69Like so many achievements nowadays, this one seems to be heavily RNG based (did you hit him, damage per hit, does he decide to stop and shout at you etc). You will get so sick of the beginning FMV as he gets away multiple times before you finally nail that sucker...
