I tried the search function and couldn't find this specific question so...
Do I have to play from start to finish on nightmare for it to unlock or can I do something else and then continue nightmare with the episode select and still get the achievement?

You don't neccessarily have to play from start to finish in one sitting, but starting a game on nightmare setting and then going to a episode select will delete your previous checkpoint. So you must complete the episode you were working on before moving on to whatever else you wish to do.

I might already have it...but I didn't go to the location to confirm it.

So to unlock the achievement I just need to complete the last chapter on nightmare under any circumstance? Considering you can't get to the last chapter on nightmare without playing the rest on nightmare right?

I believe every chapter is available on nightmare mode once you beat the game on normal/hard. So I don't know if going just to the last level will net you the achievement. You don't remember what episodes you already completed on Nightmare difficulty?

Well I guess you answered your own question then. :)

I realised while I was playing that they'd have to allow for people to restart levels if they screw themselves over by running out of ammo. So it's probably fine.

Edit: Confirmed - Achievement unlocked.
