-Do not worry about him until you reach the cinematic where he says "I guess you want to make it personal!" At the start, he sends hordes of Helghast troops at you. Kill them all. You will be on the ground floor for about three waves of troops. Then the doors on the side will open, allowing you to get to the balcony. Note: Ammo is limited on the balcony. Make your shots count. When you go up onto the balcony, there will be two flamethrower Helghast waiting. Afterward, there will be two waves of infantry, followed by a mixed group of infantry and knife wielding Helghast officers. Watch out; when you are on the balcony, they will come up from both sides. Take care of them first, then focus on the floor troops. After this wave you are greeted with RPG troops on the far wall of the room. Take them out, then go back to the floor troops. After about six waves you get another cinematic of Radec. You are now back on the ground level. He now phases in and out of invisibility and shows up next to you and tries to knife you. Continue moving and shooting at him as he shows himself. After hitting him enough times, he retreats to the stairs in front of you. Keep shooting, and when he goes down, the battle is over.
-After he makes the comment about "making it personal", waves of troops will then continuously appear. There is no real strategy here other than "run and gun". When it gets down to just you and Radec and he keeps turning invisible, stock up on ammo (rifle recommended). Go up to the balcony and put your back in a corner. Radec will not be able to sneak up on you. You only have to cover left and right. You will hear him appear and see a flash of light, indicating which direction he is coming from. Sometimes he will appear on the ground floor. Peek over the rail and shoot him a few times, then get back to the corner. After a short while he will appear on the stairs. Finish him off and you will have defeated him.
"Flamethrower Junkie" trophy hint:
Choose "Create Game" and the Suljeva Cliffside map, then select "Body Count" for the match type and set the kill limit to "25", match time to "30 minutes", and max players to "2". Place one A.I. bot on the Helghast faction and set the bot difficulty to "Recruit".
"Melonpopper" trophy hint:
When you cross the Salamun Bridge and lower it for your squad to cross, take the sniper rifle on the weapons rack. Then, walk out the door, but do not advance further down the bridge. Above the road is a turret with a gunner. Shoot him in the head and wait a couple seconds. Someone will replace him. Keep shooting them in the head until you unlock the trophy.
"Safety First" trophy hint:
The helmets that you must shoot off the Helghasts do not have to be on live targets. Just shoot them off the corpses to build the count towards the trophy.
"Untouchable" trophy hint:
If you die while trying to unlock the "Untouchable" trophy, pause game play and restart the level. This will reset your death counter to zero.
"Engineer" trophies hint:
Select 'Play,' then 'Create Game.' Pick the map you need the trophy for and start the game. Before any other players join, run through the map and repair 5 objects to get a Trophy. Quit the game and repeat this for all the remaining maps that you need the trophy for.
"Boltgun Junkie" trophy hint:
Begin the game and torch the bot 20x. Repeat the exact same steps for the Boltgun Junkie trophy on Arctower Landing. (Note: Using A.I. BOTS is also a simple way to acquire the Suljeva/Arctower Conqueror and Suljeva/Arctower Killer trophies.)
