Smile Grim Reaper Achievement Glitch

i have posted this glitch in other forums. i made this thread so as to further spread the good word that an achievement based on difficultly- a curve ball if you will from all the other achievements- can be easily achieved if you follow the strategy to the glitch i found.
this glitch worked for me after 3 long hours of struggling to beat the fat ass with my level 34.

1. make sure one of your characters has a long ranged weapon equipped (i.e. long bow, short bow, cross bow)

2. weaken his first form until he's almost dead

3. let all of your characters die except the one with the bow... (it happened to me on accident)

4. go over to the switch and wait until he lets out the red mist

5. hit the switch ( hold and look at the switch and press ) strike the final blow on the first form and watch the cut scene

6. post cut scene- DO NOT MOVE. continuously fire on second form until he dies.

he should not attack you or spawn any nasty skeletons. if he does attack he will only attack occasionally. if you keep your fire up then you won't have to worry about it cause he'll be jumping back most of the time. that's why you have the bow

It sounds easy enough hopefully this should not be too much of a problem for a level 35 human warrior

Yea I have found out the hard way I thought that I could weaken him down to about 5%-10% health on normal difficulty then switch to hard difficulty hit him 2 more times than bam Grim Reaper achievement would unlock but it doesn’t work like that unfortunately which indeed makes it a lot harder.

Seemed to be working then as soon as it was in its second form he attacked me and wouldnt let up he would hop[ away but as soon as I shot him again hew came right back. And no I didnt move after the cutscene.

try running around and using the ranged weapon. heal your ppl when they need it. and when the red mist comes run as fast as u can to the switch and flip it. thatll kill all the skeletons and let u attack him without magic.

EA has made it so that you can't play any DLC if you can't connect to their servers, so it seems that this glitch is permanantly gone. Wish I had done this game sooner. Thanks for the info, anyway.

is this new? because i played the dlc just fine before without being connected to live (my dlc came from the ultimate edition, so it was the drm-free version if that makes any difference)

that probably has something to do with it. thats always nice if you dont have xbox live. you can probably get away with the glitch then.
