Resident Evil 4 HD Achievements

A Rock and a Hard Place

Outmaneuver the rampaging beast, El Gigante.  

This achievement is story-related and not missable.

In Chapter 2-1, you get this during the fight with El Gigante. Shoot him until he drops then run up and hit the Action Button to Cut the parasite on his back. Depending on your mashing this may take 2 to 3 times.

i just killed the beast to get this. i didn't have to do any special dodging quick time event or anything.
tips to kill it: shoot it several times until the parasite exposes itself. then, approach the beast and press X to climb on top of it. when prompted, tap the appropriate button to slash at the parasite. repeat this process two or three times until it dies.
also, remember that dog at the beginning of the game that was caught in the trap? if you freed it, it will help you win this fight by distracting the beast while you shoot it.

EASY TIP: free the dog caught in the bear trap at the beggining of the game. he helps distract El Gigante while you shoot him.

Really easy boss fight. As soon as the fight begins shoot 3 rounds from your handgun, then "quickly" equip and throw a hand grenade do a 180 turn and get in-between the huts and shoot El Gigante ("So God Bless") with your handgun or TMP until the parasite comes out then take out your rifle or shotgun and go to work on it. Leave the hut area and run around grabbing the Yellow and Red herbs. If you freed the dog at the beginning of the game then he will come and distract El Gigante, otherwise keep running around until Gigante signals to do a charge attack. Evade it and unload with your handgun and TMP (if you have any spare grenades then feel free to toss one or two to speed up the process). The parasite will come out and then go to work on it with your rifle and shotgun. Problem solved :)

I played RE5 before this one, so assumed you had to shoot the back parasite, like Ndesu. Wasted some bullets here apparently.
