Angry arms dealer glitch

so i have bought every weapon and attachment multiple times and the achievement has not popped. yes, i have bought all the pistols, including the one you start with, yes i have bought all 3 variants of the grenade launcher attachment. i dont understand.. its the last achievement i need for this game and its really pissing me off that i cant unlock it. if anyone has the same problem and has figured out the solution, please let me know by sending me a message on xbox live. my gamertag is ThePaleHorseman.

Are you absolutely certain you've purchased every weapon and attachment?

What might of been a good idea is to make a check-list before starting this achievement. I purchased every weapon and attachment and neglected to buy the Five Seven. Seems to catch a lot of people out. Try buying that, and the shotgun (Model 1887) you also pick up early on. Also the MP5 if you picked them up. It's very easy to overlook as you cannot purchase what you already have.

If you have no luck, then you may have to start again and tick them off as you go along. Doesn't take long. Good luck!

EDIT: GarethB has posted an awesome spreadsheet. Print it off: Spec Ops Check list

alright. just got it. my solution to the problem was clear the cache on my hard drive, started playing, went down the list, and unlocked the achievement once i got to the lmgs. so anyone who is having a problem with it, try that.

Are u sure about buying the scopes/grips/G-Launchers just one counts for every weapon?

EDIT:

Got the cheev.
Played Survival in resistance for 4 hours hoarding cash,
and yes you only need to buy the scopes etc. one time.
The excel-list which is floating around here helped me alot! THX!

Bottom line, it isn't glitched. You missed one. Or two. I have gotten the achievement yet, but I guarantee you it isn't glitched.

I went through the list 4 times ticking off every weapon and attachment but no achievement. So i cleared my cache and it popped as soon as i collected every weapon and attachment on the list.

I made a list as I was going through and ticked everything off, Guns, Attachments e.t.c. and to my surprise the "Arms Dealer" Achievement didn't Unlock?

From looking at the comments above I think I'll go and clear my Cache on my XBOX to see if it pops!

I'll Update again later. It's ridiculous that clearing the XBOX 360 System Cache seems to be the answer for most people.

I thought I had the sAme problem, ended up just needing to buy the starting pistol after I dumped it.

Can someone clear this up for me. So for this achievement, you need to buy all the weapons with every attachment you can get for each weapon?

Like say I buy the Type 95, would I then need to buy all its possible attachments for that gun, then buy the MK and have to buy all the possible attachments for that?

Same thing here, I used a check sheet and everything. It unlocked after I bought the Barret for the third time.

I had the same problem everyone else did, bought all the weapons, and nothing happen, then I used the checklist and realized I had to buy one of all the attachments, and got the achievement...now I just have to get "overachiever" to 100% the game...

OH IT'S GLITCHED ALRIGHT! I've made a list, started top to bottom, and purchased EVERY attachment for EVERY weapon. so, if you guarantee it...WHERE'S MY MONEY BISH?!

It may be that my gamer profile is on a usb, and my game saves are on usb, but it shouldn't matter.

I'm clearin the cache.
