Are these "buy all..." achievements in 1 game or can you buy some during one game and the others later.

The sounds of it, buy all in one game. Correct me if I am wrong, planning to buy the game right after work.

@1, You do not have to buy them all in one game, you just have to purchase each item at least once in your career playing Survival

How do you know if you've bought yet or not.

@4 There is no official way to tell, you just have to remember. I am just buying everything down the list from top to bottom as it is unlocked.

I don't think it's an all-in-one-game achievement. Plus, you need
to be at least level 27 in order to do this achievement and Danger

This achievement has to be glitched is anyone having issues with it. I bought everything at least twice in a single game. Im level 39 and at a point everything was full or owned. Even threw all my grenades and flashes and got more.

I can confirm you do not have to buy everything in a single game. What tripped me up is I bought everything and it didn't unlock. Then it dawned on me. You need to buy the "revive" perk. It says owned because you start the game with one. Cook a grenade, once you've revived, go buy it.

Also, you MIGHT have to buy the items to "FULL" capacity, such as Claymores, C4, and RPG-7. Don't quote me on that, though.

Does this include the all of the care package perks? I bought everything else in this thing. (Predator Missile etc)

You just gave an answer to yourself. If it didn't unlock at the moment you got your other stuff.

Me about 15-20 minutes.

I got this a while ago its a lot easier then the other two considering that you don't have to be level like 47 to 50 to get the last weapon which is the riot shield.

its annoying how people always complain about swearing they bought everything but then realize they forgot something stupid like something you start out with.

I thought all I had left was Riot Sheild...nothing. So then I bought Revive (even though I was 99.99% sure I had already)...nothing. Everything else from there I buy on a REGULAR basis, so I can't figure out what the hell is happening.

Finally got this just now...I think #14 is correct. You must buy all to full "capacity."

PLEASE help! I have bought every item in Defense Spending MULTIPLE times and it still hasn't popped. Yes, they were all bought to "full" capacity and yes I bought Self Revive. Is this Achievement glitched??
