Have not tried on hard core but makes zealot mode a walk in the park.

Oh and SPOILERS

Use the pulse rifle. I'm sure you can use w/e weapon you want but I prefer the PR. As soon as the fight begins unload into Nicole and then the heart when its exposed. As soon as the marker closes on the heart turn 90 degrees either left or right and start running. You want to run a path around the edge of the thing your on and get all the enemies chasing you. When you first start your run you will need to dodge a little as they spawn but once all of them have spawned and started the chase you'll be fine. Once your confident there all behind you can reload while running and then turn around and use the PR alt-fire or just spray into them, don't spray too long or they will get too close. Turn back around and run some more, turning and firing when you feel safe until only Nicole is left. Note where the marker is and unload into Nicole and then the heart when its exposed. Repeat the process. I only had to unload into the heart 3 times to kill it.

Hope this helps anyone having trouble with the final boss.
Life should be like an MMO. Going to work should mean stepping outside and killing boars for gold.

Agreed. This is the correct answer. If it's not working for you, you're doing it wrong.
The sentence below is true.

Force gun is still the right answer, along with contact beam.

Both of these guns pretty much break the end boss.

CB primary fire devastates both Nicole and Marker heart in one shot. Alt fire takes care of the little Ico imps full 360 degrees around you. FG only gets the ones in front of you. CB wins.

Contact Beam doesn't even need to think about the kiddies. Shoot Nicole, shoot the heart, shoot Nicole, shoot the heart DONE. Don't even have to move.

A single maxed out javelin shot will take her into the next phase. The shot does loads of damage, followed by the alt fire that does lots of quick repeated hits followed by an explosion.

You don't even have to use one single power node on the Contact Beam and it still wins. It doesn't even have any DMG nodes, it's starts w/ full strength primary fire.
