Tip: Can be done in Act 1 Chapter 3. It’s done where you rescue two Gears in pods.

Just make sure you switch to your Snub Pistols immediately on all characters when they become available, including the Rescued Gears.

47. The bigger they are, the harder they fall (10 Gamerscore Points) — Defeat the Brumak.

Tips: Can be done in Act 1, Chapter 6: Into the Fire. As the Brumak boss fight starts, your squad of 4 is split by the sides. It’s recommend you take out the machine guns off the Brumak first, as it limits its attack pattern to simply stomp and missile barrage (which also takes out any enemies in its range). — Try your best to keep the Brumak in the middle of the screen and chip the health down, as you get a checkpoint about halfway towards his health bar. There’s another checkpoint in this fight after taking down the first two tanks.

Note: As you destroy the tanks on the Brumak’s back, there will be Emergence Holes that pop up with wretches. Take out the E-Holes quickly before they open by placing a frag grenade on top of them, so they don’t cause any issues for you.

48. Maybe too much spine… (10 Gamerscore Points) — Secret Achievement.

49. Broken hand, broken heart (20 Gamerscore Points) — Defeat the Corpser.

Tips: Can be done in Act 2. Chapter 8: Trapped. The Corpser attacks include: Sweeping a large area with its legs. Spitting out around 3 proximity mines. As it gets close to dying it will sweep 2 areas and spit even more mines. And it will use its legs to shield up. But you can shoot or use explosives to open the legs.

There will be Emergence Holes that will spawn. Take out the E-Holes quickly before they open by placing a frag grenade on top of them. Drones and wretches will spawn periodically. Take care of them so you don’t get overwhelmed. — Make sure when you can to take advantage of executes / chainsaws / bayonet charges, so you get an extra turn for your squad.

50. Dead men tell no tales (20 Gamerscore Points) — Secret Achievement.

Note: They clearly had fun naming these achievement titles, lots of quotes from Samuel L. Jackson, John Travolta, Jules Winnfield, and Vincent Vega.
