You actually just need to get the best of the gear.
*Missaglias armor
*The best pouches
*All the campaign related weapons (the last one is the pistol).

This can be completed at DNA9

this is easier than it sounds, its not like
you need to trade with people like some games, that really gets my goat!!
You either buy them or obtain them through the storyline.

I was able to buy the large poison pouch and the last piece of the Missaglias armor right after completing dna sequence 9. Soon as I bought the last item, cheevo popped.

@lornesbord: Start upgrading the town around your Villa right away, starting with the shops. Then the town starts generating more money for you. Buy as much armour, art, and weapons as you can afford. The more you buy, the more money accumulates in your villa, and soon you will be swimming in money.
