For this achievement you need to fire the weapon at an enemy. If you finished the game you only need to select two chapters where you can find all 6 weapons. Load Chapter 5 and you will find the .45 Cal, Pump Action Shotgun, Sawed Off Shotgun and Revolver. Complete the level and then load Chapter 10. In this chapter you will find the Rifle and Sub Machine Guns. Finish the chapter and the achievement should unlock. Good luck!

Aah, that cleared up some confusion. I'd used them all for melee and got the
other achievement.

Thanks muchly, and looking at the date, it was timed beautifully too :)

The .45, Revolver, Pump, and Sawed-Off can all be found in chapter 7 as well. I had to go back into 7 for the desk drawer and was able to clean up these last two cheevos.

This tip helps. I will have to try it. Have not played this game in a long time due to frustration of not getting it when I found and used all firearms thru my playthrough. I thought I was going to have to play the entire game two more times to get Gold Melee Master and this one. Just found it odd that I received Melee Mayhem Award at the end of my first play and didn't receive this one. To get Melee Mayhem it states you must find every melee weapon and firearm. Odd this didn't pop. Guess it was a glitch.

I went with Crizzix's advice, sort of. I played the entire game with only melee weapons, and then came back and replayed chapter 7, the library(because it seems easier and faster than C5), and used all the firearms available. The SMG is also in chapter 7, but tricky to get with any bullets left. Then, to get the Rifle and SMG, I made a save point in Chapter 10, right before you come to the white busted up building with the two SMGs and the four health packs. Reloading here means you can back track a bit to get a rifle. Use the rifle/SMGs in the white building to kill the fat boys. Then finish the level. Done. 30 min tops. Also, you can use the rifle on the second hate ninja or lure him back in to the white building where he can't get down the stairs. Great glitch.

You can actually find all of the weapons EXCEPT the Rifle on Chapter 7 - The Library, and here's how (spoilers):

After the initial setup of the level, Rosa will get kidnapped by SKX. You will come to a door that gets busted down by a man wielding a fire-axe who then runs off. Afterwards, you have to chase this man and retrieve his axe to bust down a door in order to proceed to the server room. The first room you chase him through has only one melee weapon foe. Then you go through a set of double doors and immediately see a 9mm bum you can taze. Once he's tazed, just run up to him and steal his pistol and cap him a few times in the head. Upon proceeding further into the room you will find two shotgun foes. One has a Sawed-Off and the other has a Pump-Action. Use the same tactic for thes

As you grab the axe and head back to the server room, you will be assaulted by two more vagrants, one of which is wielding a Revolver. Smash the server room door down, crowbar the barred door open, and head back and grab the Revolver. Don't worry about taking the crowbar with you up the elevator as there is a spare one on the counter next to the three thugs up there.

The first of these three thugs will be to your right as you enter the room. He is wielding a Sub-Machine Gun. Take care of him, grab his SMG, and kill the other two guys here.

Also, another thing to note:

I personally achieved the "Gold Melee Master Award" after I completed level 9, so I was able to use both the SMG and Rifle on the final level and didn't need to replay anything other than the 7th level.

If you couldn't find a revolver on Chapter 7, Chapter 6 has one in a blue metal cabinet, and it's a very short chapter. I used the rifle and SMG on Chapter 10, replayed Chapter 7 and got the .45 cal and both shotguns but couldn't find a revolver on that level. Chapter 6 only takes about 10 min to complete and has a guaranteed revolver.

Wow thanks for this. Got every achievement on the first run except for this one. Thought it was glitched and was pissed. Played level 7 again and at the end pop last achievement.
