Get a co-op dude, stay at the first cover until he comes over, then leg it to the other side and repeat.

I would offer to help on XBL, but my GOW disk is currently lost.

Ya another human is awesome. Have one guy shoot at ramm with a regular lancer or burst shot, then when the bats go away, have the person hes not looking at torque bow, or snipe him in the head.

Make sure that those bats are not around him, for they are a shield. Also tagging him with nades work, but thats extremely risky.

I find the most effective method is to shoot at him until he dies.

i reccomend using the explosive weapons as opposed to what the guy uses in the vid, pay careful attention to where he throws the grenades.

use the torque bow to get rid of the birds then shoot wildly/snipe him then when he gets near quickly run to the other side repeat until dead

Co-op is the only way to go, really. I'm not saying it's not possible on your own, but Co-op helps a long way to making it easy. Stock up on Grenades, then have one guy with the Sniper and one with the Torque. When he appears, Torque him and the Bats won't shield him afterwards, use that time to shoot him in the head. Repeat this until you run out of ammo. Then, lob 'nades at him until he dies. You shouldn't have to do much more than that, though it could take a few tries.

It takes about 20 headshots with the sniper, even if the Kryll are around him because they don't protect his head. When I did it by myself I didn't bother with torque. I just got sniper and made sure I had the maximum amount of  ammo.

I'm sure there is an easier way but probably not, because whenever someone asks this question people always say "co-op it." I personally hate co-op, it takes away from the challenge of a game. I'd rather beat a game first on my own.

Wow! Thanks for all the great responses and help everyone. I really appreciate it!
We've tried single player but Dom just rushes in and gets his ass busted. So now we are doing co-op, one player with lancer the other with sniper/torque.

We will try out all your tips today (and maybe even try shooting RAAM wiT da gunzz).

Thanks again!

I had my freind torque bow him so the kryll would leave while i shot him with lancer while I did that he charged up his shot and held it until it shot automatically and it exploded just as the kryll were coming in. these dealt more damage while the kryll stayed off him. he just stood there taking it. Best strategy.

That' s glitch, when he stands still like that..cheap ass way to beat him. I like to try and get off 7-8 head shots with sniper rilfe  before he get to me, then when he gets to the pipes I huck all my frags. then siwtch to the lancer to finish him off. Unlike the guy in the vid . I tend not to have much luck running to the back of the train. I have beat RAAM many times this way. Some times in a few tries others, in an hour of trying. Good luck =]

yeh its cheap. But its not much of a boss fight anway. All you can do is shoot him a bunch, and hope for the best.

shoot him

I get the feeling that RAAM's health isn't always consistent.  It's almost as if it is easier to kill him sometimes than it is others.  The only time I beat him on my own, he dropped after six sniper rifle shots, and I've had several occurrences of beating him ridiculously quickly in co-op.

sniper rifle shots
That's the way to go. Sniper headshots take him down the fastest. In Co-Op I always use only the Sniper, while the other player lobs nades.
