Gears of War 2

Gears of War 2 Achievements

Variety is the Spice of Death

Kill an enemy with every weapon in the game (any mode)   

You will need to use 15 different weapons for this achievement. Use the same method as for "Organ Grinder" to get anything you didn't use in the campaign.

  1. Boltok Pistol (Locust)
  2. Snub Pistol (COG)
  3. Gorgon Pistol (Rapid-Fire)
  4. Hammerburst (Locust Assault Rifle)
  5. Lancer (COG Assault Rifle)
  6. Boomshot
  7. Shotgun
  8. Hammer of Dawn
  9. Longshot Sniper Rifle
  10. Torque Bow
  11. Mortar Launcher
  12. Mulcher Chain-gun
  13. Scorcher Flamethrower
  14. Frag Grenade
  15. Ink Grenade

The Ink Grenade and Hammer of Dawn are almost always the last ones people need. For the Ink kill, it will take two to kill an enemy. Chances are if you think you got it but are still at 14/15, they bled out instead of dying from the Ink. Try tagging them with one and throwing another at their crawling body.

The best way to get this achievement would be to do it in a custom match,
get another control and sign in then use your account to kill them in the
7 different ways, it works because i've done it this way.

Can someone please explain this in a little more detail. How and where do I set up a custom match, training grounds, local, custom xbox live? Also when I do the weapon swapping thing nothing ever changes, I always start out with the same weapons. Do I need to use a specific map? Please help me!!!

Easiest way to get this is while going for the "A Parting Gift" (Kill enemy with gernade while down but not out), Can either set the weapons to your liking then run to enemy get kknocked down and WITH gernade equiped hold right trigger. If done correctly you should hear the sound of the gernade priming and then boom, you die he chokes on the gas and dies as well.

Look in the user manual and make a checklist of all 15 weapons. Cross off each weapon you've used and you should be left with you one your missing. If you can't remember exactly then the best thing I can advise is to use each weapon again. That way your sure to get it :) Hope this helped

Set up a multiplayer game with hammer of dawn as custom weapon and a 2nd controller... leave the 2nd character alone and then kill them with it.

Hammer of dawn is what you use to kill the infected brumak (final part of camPain) also the ink grenade is the other weapon that people have troubles with. Just use technique given by post #6

I've used the Hammer of Dawn in the Lambet Brumak but this achievement hasn't been unlocked. I thought I've lost one single weapon, so I did a list with every weapon and played again the campaign, eliminating every weapon I've used, but it didn't unlock. Where, in the campaign, I can use the Hammer of Dawn? I think I've killed the Lambet Brumak about four times, but it doesn't work. Am I right? I have to kill another enemy with the Hammer of Dawn than the Lambet Brumak? The only way to do this is setting up a multiplayer game? May I do with bots?

Finally I've done this achievement! Really, you can't do this killing the Lambet Brumak with the Hammer of Dawn. I don't know why, but it doesn't unlock the Hammer of Dawn in the Lambet Brumak. I've hosted a local match warzone, with 8 bots, and put all weapons through the map to be the hammer of dawn. It worked very well.

Got this in one play through of the Campaign. Got stuck twice on Ink Grenades and the Hammer of Dawn; other than that just use all three pistols, the gnasher, Lancer+Hammerburst, Longshot, Frag grenades, Mulcher, Mortar, Flamethrower, torque bow and boomshot.

Based on Glazed Soul's comment: so the Hammer of Dawn is only on the last chapter of the campaign in Gears 2? As I have yet to find it (up to Chapter 3 of Act 4), but it was in Gears 1 WAY more than that! And I can't remember but think it was in Gears 3 campaign more than that from Gears 2 (I only remember being in the Gears 3 campaign's final chapter as well atm), but maybe not at all in Gears Judgment campaign? Weird consistency with the Hammer usage in timeline terms...
