A Dish Best Served Cold

Defeat General RAAM on Hardcore Difficulty    

General RAAM will attack you in 'Pale Horse', the last chapter of the game. It is recommended you do this with a partner, as it's very tough otherwise.

I personally hid behind the first wall and unloaded my Longshot into his head until he got too close. When he did, I jumped over the wall and high-tailed it to the other side of the train for cover. Then I started unleashing some more headshots until he went down.

This video was not done on Insane, although it says it was.
For Co-op, your best method is:
  • This achievement can be done on Co-Op. If done in Co-op, it will not matter who actually kills RAAM. The achievement will unlock for both players, assuming neither one already has it.
  • RAAM is surrounded by Kryll that will harm you if you don't stay in the light.
  • General RAAM must be killed on Hardcore difficulty to count. Not Casual or Insane.
  • Directly before you battle RAAM, you are in a subway car filled with weapons. These respawn after a few minutes, so wait it out and make sure you have full ammo for everything you want to use.
