May sound silly...S rating?

What's required to get an S rating on a boss besides beating it without dying?

id say not getting hit at all, but of course that's nearly impossible when flak from the boss is coming from everywhere

Read the guide. Also, it tells you before you go in...and after you beat the boss what was required for S and what you got.

Getting hit or dieing has nothing to do with it. The Rating Cutoffs are strictly time based. Finish the boss quickly, you'll get a higher rating. Take longer (even if you manage to not get hit at all) and you'll get a lower rating.

Just dive right in and use all three bombs, and your missles, then die as fast as you can, and use your missles, then your bombs, try to save one for the next map.

Best strat is to die before you reach the boss, so you can get 3 bombs.
Very easy achievement, do it on penguin.

I agree with the post above me. That is the best way to do it. The bomb/missle combo really kills them off quickly. To be honest, I don't think I beat one boss without dying. I would stay alive long enough to get to the boss and blitz them right before I died, so that way I could respawn before time was up.

I managed to get all these achievements on co-op and the way we did it was to save all your bombs, try not to get hit and only pick up bombs so you get to the boss with like 6 bombs and 8 clash. Then once you run out suicide and use your new bombs
