I experienced better results during Bolt's boss battle with Calico. Once you inflict enough damage on him, he will go to his healing machine (two on the level). Attack him while he is healing by repeatedly pressing X (3-5 times), then attack him with Bolt's laser vision (LB) and hold the button. He will push you away. Wait until he is healing again, rinse and repeat. The combo count will continue despite being hit and the achievement will unlock when your count reaches 30 (during the fight).

Edit: "Go straight from hitting "X" to hitting "LB" and DO NOT land on the ground, it will take about 30 seconds". Special thanks to Im the Lorax

If you negatve vote, please explain. There are no perfect solutions; however, every solution can be improved upon.
KGK Lunchboxdident work for me the first times i tried it until i realised that sometimes he does a hit instead of push. After a hit the counter resets. Just wanted to add this if anyone else have the same problem

TVthePunisherIt took me long enough because Calico just kept being cheap. FINALLY I was able to hold the combo to like...40 something.

BillJones0302@z0mbi3slayer219: I personally have never seen the combo solution on video, but I can assure you that my solution does work. I tested it with two different profiles. Just make sure you attack Calico while he is healing. Spam "X" 2-3 times and then press and hold "LB". The combo count should remain active as he repeats the healing attempt and allows you to pass 30X. Good luck.

Im the LoraxThis is not working at all. I hit him up to 6 or 7x, Then he blocks with this blue bubble and laser eyes can't get passed him. I even tried hitting him like 2 or 3x's and then laser eyes, he automatically puts this bubble around and the hit counter doesn't go up. Also, while he's in the healing machine Bolt won't hit him, he keeps head butting the stupid machine..

BillJones0302@Im the Lorax: Not sure what your problems might stem from, but if you are hitting him 6-7 times, then he erects his force field, you might try only hitting him 3-4 times. You have to use LB for the laser eyes before the shield.

Im the LoraxHe has a force field after like 2 times, it's rediculous. And he ALWAYS hits me, I can't get the combo meter past 6 or 7.

Im the LoraxGOT IT! What a PIA, could you please edit your solution to say that after the 3-5 hits with "X" you need to hold LB for laser eyes WITH OUT hitting the ground? It took forever to figure out but when you land your counter resets. That's the issue I was having. Go straight from hitting "X" to hitting "LB" and DO NOT land on the ground, it will take about 30 seconds and I got it. Thanks!

Eric FiltroJust to add my 2 cents, the combo will not reset only when Calico jumps up and lands hard. So keep doing the cn_Xcn_Xcn_Xcn_Xcn_LB on him so you land about 6-12 hits. If you are lucky, he will jump up. That's when your combo won't reset. When he lands (avoid getting hit just in case), do the cn_Xcn_Xcn_Xcn_Xcn_LB again and it will continue the counter, getting you to 30+.

BBALL UKLike people commented you have to get a few hits in first with cn_X I hit him about 10x then use cn_LB. When he jumps in air run away so he won't knock you down, then run back and repeat. Here is a video of me doing it.

True DeliriousMight seem like it doesn't work but if you time when he jumps be ready for when he lands and start hitting him them for about 10X combo then press LB you'll be put of the way of his blast radious
