By using First Person Mode, it is possible to destroy him faster using RYNO II and firing at his chest. Around 200 ammo of RYNO II (two complete magazines) are needed to kill him, so the player has to move around the battlefield to collect ammo for RYNO II.
It is also possible to kill him with just the Tankbot Glove. Simply move behind a corner of a building. If you position yourself correctly he will be unable to do any damage to you as his shots will all simply hit the building. While he's distracted pull out your Tank Bot. Steer it right next to the giganto bot's leg then hold down the laser shooting button and fire the Tankbot's missiles as fast as you can. Do this until the timer runs out and then simply repeat the process. You should only have to do this about 6 times (5 times if acid mod is installed).
It is also possible to use the Sheepinator if you've clipped through the wall into the fight. Simply aim the ray between the base of his legs and fire while strafing slightly. Once the mech transforms into a sheep, hit it with the wrench and run toward the cutscene trigger for the fight. The mech will be destroyed instantly.
Another tactic that can make the battle far easier is simply shooting him with the turrets and exiting them before the seeking missiles hit you. This will prevent you from taking any damage.
