You need a weapon with high armor damage, aim for the eye if the Katagawa Ball to deal critical damage, and obviously, keep moving around and use the area ot your advantage.

There is one particular spot in the area, where you can avoid a lot of damage. Jump over the supply crates and stand behind the large metal pole. From this spot, you have the clear sight of the Katagawa Ball.

However, this sport won’t protect you from every attack but will provide enough of a shelter that you can finish off the enemies.

Once the Katagawa Ball boss is defeated, pick up the Vault Key Fragment. Return to Sanctuary and had over the Vault Key Fragment to Tannis in the Infirmary. Go to the bridge, talk to Lilith and the mission is complete.
