The Guide:

The achievements that require 100, 200 and 400 kills with each weapon can seem very obscure and difficult.
However, it has been confirmed by myself and others that they can be done through a combination of campaign and ranked or player multiplayer.
There is no way of seeing how many kills you have with each weapon, you have to guess or try to count.

I recommend playing through campaign once or twice before going for these.
Afterward, take a note of the 1 or 2 weapons you used the most and ignore them for now, as you likely have 400 kills with them already.
These will likely be the Assault Rifle and the Pistol.
Choose a weapon that you know you barely used, and are furthest from 100 kills with.
For me, that was the rocket launcher.
Use the guides below to find out how to rack up kills with that weapon.
When you count 100 with it, you will get the achievement if you have 100 with everything else.
If not, then use each of your other least used weapons until you get the 100 achievement.

You will know that you need exactly 300 more kills with whichever weapon you were using when you got the achievement for 100. (100 + 300 = 400)
Therefore, using the guides below, count approximately 300 kills with that weapon and then stop using it.
Move on to the next least used one and get 300 kills with that.
Do this with each weapon and you should get the achievement.
If you're certain you have 400 with everything and don't have it, get more kills with the 2 weapons you put aside in the beginning.

EDIT: Grenades, melee, etc. are not needed for the "x kills with each weapon" achievements.


The Best Locations to Rack Up Kills:

Squad Focus Fire Kills
:
In the episode Counter-Insurgency, load up the level Transfer of Authority.
Set your teammate onto the turret on your left, then jump down. Stand as far away from the Spore Tower as you can, near the rocket launcher that is by itself in the middle of an open rectangle. When the Spore Tower slams on the ground, 2 or 3 Octopus Dogs come out. Target each one by pressing RB and let your squad kill it entirely. Move on to the next. At first it will be sloppy, but once you have all 3 dead at once, and all 3 spawn at once, you can stand still and so will they! Just mindlessly target one after the other, but don't shoot.

Octopus Dog Melee Kills:
In the episode Counter-Insurgency, load up the level Transfer of Authority.
Jump down and melee the Octopus Dogs that continue to respawn, but don't kill the Spore Tower.

Reborn Kills
:
You will get these while working on the 400 kills per weapon achievement, using the locations further below.

Assault Rifle Kills:
It is likely that you will have 400 of these after playing through campaign, but if you think otherwise, simply use the locations for the Sniper and Plasma below, and get some more kills.
Note: The achievement for getting 10 kills with this must be done in a single clip of ammo, without reloading.

Pistol Kills:
It is likely that you have nearly 400 of these after playing through campaign and some multiplayer. If you barely used it, go to the locations for the Sniper and Plasma below and get kills with it. When working for the Sniper and Plasma kills, there are 6 enemies at the beginning that you will be killing with a pistol anyway.
Note: The achievement for getting 10 kills with this are for headshots.

Sniper Kills:
In the episode Topside, load up the level Oversight.
Kill the first 6 enemies using the Pistol or Assault Rifle to help with those achievements, then go around the back of a building and grab the Sniper and some Ammo. Jump over the fence and kill all of the enemies in the three groups until you get an objective update saying that a helicopter is about to land. At that point, kill yourself with a grenade and repeat. You will get an average of 20 Sniper kills per run, so just add 20 to your count after each one.

Plasma Kills:
In the episode Topside, load up the level Oversight.
Kill the first 6 enemies using the Pistol or Assault Rifle to help with those achievements, then grab the Plasmas that are dropped by the 2 enemies on the roof, and some Ammo. Jump over the fence and kill all of the enemies in the three groups until you get an objective update saying that a helicopter is about to land. At that point, kill yourself with a grenade and repeat. You will get an average of 20 Plasma kills per run, so just add 20 to your count after each one.
Note: The achievement for getting 10 kills with this must be done by detonating the projectile mid-air. To do this, hold down the trigger when you shoot and it will detonate when you release, which must be done quickly depending on the enemy's distance.

Antitank Launcher Kills:
In the episode Topside, load up the level Catastrophic Success. This is a much better Spore Tower battle for getting Rocket kills, because there is a pack of Rockets that never runs out.
Go up the stairs on your right, jump onto the roof structure below and grab the Rocket Launcher. Then, go underneath this structure and stand on or near the ammo pack, which is specifically for Rockets. Kill the Octopus Dogs when they respawn. When two are dead at one time, they will respawn together and if you lock on, you can kill both with one Rocket. They will respawn in the same amount of time it takes to reload, so it works perfectly.
Note: The achievement for getting 10 kills with this must be done by locking on, which is done by holding the left trigger and aiming at an enemy.

Scatter Gun Kills:
In the episode Topside, load up the level Catastrophic Success.
There is a Scatter Gun right in front of you when you open the door, and ammo in the little shacks all around you. Simply hold the trigger down while you wait for the Octopus Dogs to respawn, and kill the two of them when they do so. Rinse and repeat!
Note: The achievement for getting 5 kills with this can be different for some people, so fool around with it if you can't get it straight away. Try holding down the trigger, bouncing it off walls or just hitting them straight on.

Quick question before I start on this... did you just exit out of the level once you felt you had enough kills? I'm guessing so, this game seems to save everything you do regardless of dying or quitting.

Yes sir, I quit quite a few times; to try on different levels or to work on other weapons and I'm certain that it kept my progress.

Don Manolo 11-27-2007 07:52 PM

This is a great guide! I was wondering where I could get rocket kills fast and then I tried the method you discribed and a achievement popped up for getting my first 100 kills with every weapon! 300 kills to go now hehe

colburn 11-29-2007 10:17 AM

nice guide helped me on a few things :D

Kyton912 11-30-2007 10:14 AM

this may sound funny but are them the only weapons that count toward the achievement or do like beat downs and grenades count also?

BlueBerryNinjaX 11-30-2007 10:05 PM

Yeah, I did about 20 kills outright and it didn't work for me. I had to actually kill enemies by bouncing it off of stuff.
The shots don't seem to bounce if you don't fully charge the weapon, so maybe if you just fully charge it you can still get it by killing them outright.
I'm not sure. Either way, it's not too hard to kill them by bouncing. I did it at the weigh station where you first encounter the reborn.

bcombs 12-09-2007 02:46 AM

Great guide, by the way. This helped me with a lot of things, especially the focus fire kills.

bcombs 12-09-2007 03:48 AM

Does anyone know if the little exploding beetle things count as weapon kills?
If so, there are tons of them in the last chapter as you're running through and going down all those ropes. It seems that it would be pretty easy to get the plasma rifle kills by blowing all those up.

XxxSyLiZaRxxX 12-16-2007 07:29 PM

If i melee an enemy and he dies does that count towards the acheivement?

Zombie Brigade 12-17-2007 03:34 AM

nice guide cant wait to use it once i buy this game

Bomber v4 12-20-2007 03:50 AM

I have a question, which weapons count towards the "x" amount of kills achievement.

Feel My Rage 12-21-2007 03:28 PM

Hey,just a quick little tid bit of info for all of you:

If you're having trouble getting the "Magic Bullets" achievement(as I was,I didn't know you couldn't reload) load up the Episode Rachel and play through from the begining until the first spore tower shows up.A bunch of Drudges(Octopus Dogs) show up and are spawned at this point.So,whats my point?Simply this: Beat the Drudges down with the M4. Yup,I can garuntee this works as it is how I got my Magic Bullets achievement.

Another tip,dunno if it might be a glitch or not though...

On Rachel,when you go to the City Hall to meet up with the 4th infantry,you will go up to the roof of the building,where a helicopter will show up to shoot at you.Earlier in the level,when you're running down the streets to get to the city hall,there should be a rocket launcher laying around in the middle of the street.If not,one of the reborn willl have it,just kill them and take it.Now,when you are on top of the roof when the chopper shows up, just aim, lock on, and fire!Viola.Achievement Unlocked.

Well,thats what happened for me anyways....

Mystery Mango 12-21-2007 10:36 PM

thanks that helped

mksystem74 12-31-2007 03:49 AM

Do they count if the game freezes? lol stupid game keeps freezing on me.

StormShadow 11B 01-03-2008 09:12 AM

Beat downs DO count towards kills. I beat down 100 bugs with the launcher and it unlocked. a little bit easier that way I think.

nWo Member69 01-05-2008 02:51 AM

I CANT SEEM TO GET THE Plasma Kills?? i need HELP

48hrfreetrial 01-08-2008 03:12 AM

Thanks for the guide. Seems like it won't be as bad as I thought.

Mr Aim 01-09-2008 02:18 PM

another good one for sniper kills is the very last part of rachel be for u take down the chopper u can get 20kills then after u have taken down the chopper n u get in ur chopper the mission is over carry on til the next mission what Counter Insurgency after u have seen Somers has escape from the lab n u have to get to the top of the buliding to sniper the 10 ppl from of there what are stopping ur team m8s to get past... U can easy rack up 30 sniper kills in 5mins or less...

FreaKyDeaKy 01-09-2008 02:45 PM

that's alot of killing and restarting....lol. great guide!

FiReStOrM^ 01-28-2008 11:14 PM

So using Melee counts towards the total kills with that gun? Interesting!

I'll tell ya what. I'll make a new account, get 100 kills with each weapon by melee and report back with my results.

May not be for a while, but it will be done!

FiReStOrM^ 01-29-2008 10:58 AM

Are you serious? If you are I don't need to know any more, as I just got 400 kills right now.. so obviousl 100,200,400 all done :)

Thanks for the help in this thread, it helped me know what the best levels to use were.

Edit: A quicker way to test would be to just try the following using melee:

Magic Bullets 10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f.../site/gp-g.jpg
Get 10 kills while the M4 is equipped in Campaign

Long distance charges may apply 10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f.../site/gp-g.jpg
Get 5 kills while the Sniper Rifle is equipped in Campaign


Still though, doesn't nessiserily mean it would work for the 100,200,400 though as these ones do say to "have it equipped"..

RupturedRapture 01-30-2008 04:03 AM

I honestly never even thought about using melee kills......still dont think ill go for that achievment though.:(

Shadow9392 02-07-2008 11:57 PM

nice.....i loved this guide

EVO4thaW1N 02-14-2008 10:11 PM

I started over with a different S/N and used the Sniper to melee and picked up the achievement (Long Distance) pretty quick. So I'm guessing melee does count.
