There are a few options depending on how you've specced your character.

The basic way is to keep mobile, use cover and aim for headshots with your best weapon.

If you've got a stun gun, USE IT! The boss will be left defenceless for a few seconds, allowing you to relocate or punish at leisure.

Stealth camo also works to some extent. Spam it if you've got it.

There's plenty of ammo dotted around the room, especially in a supply closet located to the left of the entrance door.

You can also throw items such as gas canisters and exploding barrels at him, which work quite nicely.

My favourite weapon is the pistol, and I died several times using it - usually getting about 30 rounds into his head without him going down.
The pistol had had a few upgrades by then, too.

Then I switched to sniper rifle (basic, no upgrades), ran into the corner (left of where you start) and he went down with around 4 headshots. His gun couldn't get me as I was behind a column or something, and his grenades were landing a safe distance away from me...

Personally, I was able to upgrade to the Typhoon. I shot him a few times, then got up real close and opened him up with the typhoon.

I went down the stun & gun approach, while throwing canisters and what not at him while he was stunned and I was low on ammo.

I personally went invisible and spammed the shotgun up close before retreating rapidly. He went down after two goes.

Sorry but I did it in on my third try :)

1. When the battle starts run away and take cover behind a crate.
2. Throw 1 x EMP grenade. This will make the boss unable to move.
3. Throw Frag Grenades at his feet until he dies.
4. (He died on the 4th or 5th frag grenade)

I did it without firing a shot. There are tons of barrels and fire extinguishers around - just throw them at him, fire extinguishers are excellent because they stop him moving around, you can get to new cover, pick up the items around the room and keep throwing them at him. Cover, throw, cover throw--and he'll go down pretty easily.

I was playing it on Onlive (and had **** service) and this is the point where I actually quit playing it. The graphics were so bad, I found it really difficult to kill him, and I didn't have invisible mode.

Going to buy a proper copy when the augmented edition get s a bit cheaper, to make use of the sweet graphics on my home PC.

There is a glitch here on PC Version. If you run into the room on the left with all the equipment and climb up onto the crates in the far right corner by the door and just wait he will eventually blow himself up
