I got this on the last but one level strangely. I have played through the game more than once so I guess it's possible that if you've done a level using only melee weapons once, you don't need to do it again.

confirmed...i finished the game and marked down the chapter i didn't full melee (in my case chapter 1)...once game completed, i reloaded first chapter, played all the way through it melee only, and it unlocked at the end...just keep track of which chapters you didn't use melee only (and yes, the taser is not considered a fire-arm so you can use it)....also you're melee score at the chapter summary doesn't need to be 100% as long as fire-arm % is 0% you're fine.

I got this achievement before I did chapter 10, is that weird? I'm guessing you have to use guns in 10 or something...

Note that if you "accidently" fired a weapon like I did when some bugger scared the living bajeebus out of me, you will have to restart the level. Reloading the last chapter will still count your gunshot.

Amazingly I felt like this was a pretty easy achievement, except for one spot: The School Pool. I died about 25 times playing that one spot over and over. Its all about perfect timing, i.e. luck. Otherwise, if you're new to the game, I suggest doing what you can to play every chapter w/o guns the first time through and just play over the couple chapters that have all the guns. OR, play as many as you can and replay the chapters you need on easy. I haven't tested this, but I think it is across all play throughs.
