 I Don't Know How to Play Those (20 points)
In The Mega Restaurant level, complete the Casino or the Restaurant without using the Guitar Cases
 In the mega restaurant level, on either of the first two floors, just hide the cases in a corner where you won't accidentally go near them, and just complete the floor. Personally, I believe the restaurant (1st floor) to be the easier of the two. As soon as you complete the floor, the achievement will automatically unlock. Also, on both of these levels, the "Death by Swing" achievement can also be unlocked, so if you wish, you can get them at the same time. Staying on the chandelier is also an easy way to make sure you don't go near the cases.
 
 Paleontologist (10 points)
In the Chicago History Museum level, completely destroy the Brachiosaurus or the T-Rex
 Completely destroy either the Brachiosaurus (long necked guy) or the T-Rex while in the Chicago History Museum

 Master of Barrage (25 points)

 Master of Spin Attack (25 points)

 Barrage Specialist (10 points)
Use the Barrage special move with every weapon
 

Check Volucer's post #15 below for the full list of weapons, use barrage at least once with each

 

Also for the "Barrage with every weapon" The weapons you need are
Pistols - Which you can find pretty much anywhere
Golden Pistols - Shouldn't be too hard to find, there's some in the Penthouse level after you fight the helicoptor a second time
Shotgun - Another one that's easy to find
Assault rifle - Ditto
Sub-machinegun - Ditto
Heavy Machine gun - I think you can get these from the penthouse level onwards, but I'm not too sure
Rocket Launcher - There's one at the end of Kowloon, and one in Wong's Estate garden, in the left hut at the top of the stairs. But there's a hidden one earlier in the Mueseum level. When you get to the area which looks different, sorta like a maintenence tunnel, in the second room after the one you enter it, on the left hand corner closest to where you enter the room there's one.

 
 Old School (25 points)
On any difficulty setting, complete a level without using any of the Tequila Bomb Special Moves
 Go through an entire level without using any Tequila special moves. This achievement can also be unlocked after a chapter is completed, by going back to the final checkpoint, opening it up, and completing that single part without special moves. It's kind of a glitch, secret, something.
 
 Untouchable (10 points)
On any difficulty setting, complete a Standoff by defeating all enemies without taking any damage
 Just win a standoff without taking any damage. The first 2 standoffs are very easy, so within a few tries this one should be easy to unlock
 
 Deadly World (25 points)
Kill 50 enemies by using the environment instead of guns
 Just kill 50 enemies using the environment. That is the shiny glistening object you see on your screen, that when shot will drop a sign, explode, fall, etc., killing whatever is under/near it. This should be unlocked just through playing through the game.
 
 Rolling Death (25 points)
Kill 50 enemies while riding on a roll cart
 Just kill 50 enemies by laying on a rolling cart and shooting those around you.
 
 Death by Swing (25 points)
Kill 50 enemies while hanging from a chandelier
 Kill 50 enemies while hanging from a chandelier, and is probably easiest unlocked while doing the "I don't know how to play those" achievement. This also helps for the "Chow would be Proud" achievement. To hang from a chandelier, just stand on the railing, and shoot at it a few times to get it swinging, then when it gets near you it will turn white and can be grabbed with LT.
 
 The Killer (10 points)
Fire 10,000 times
 Another one that will be unlocked just by playing. You just have to shoot 10,000 rounds. Relax, it'll go by a lot quicker than it seems. I unlocked it in the 3rd level. I also unloaded a lot in the 1st level working for the "Ruthless" achievement.
 
 Origami Master (35 points)
Collect 250 Origami Cranes
 Just collect 250 origami cranes. Now this is not possible to do in a single run-through, but this achievement also collects over many run throughs. Supposedly it will unlock by the end of your 2nd completion. Also, any cranes collected in multiplayer do NOT count.
 
 Chow Would Be Proud (15 points)
Kill 10 enemies with a 5 star style rating
 Kill 10 enemies with a 5 star style rating. This is another that should come naturally on its own, and will be unlocked while completing the hanging achievement, if it hasn't been unlocked already.
 
 Ruthless (30 points)
Perform a 50 star Style Combo
 This is easiest to do in the very first chapter, here is a video showing how it's done.

 Massive D (20 points)
Cause at least $75,000,000 of damage
 Cause $75 million dollars worth of damage. This is another that will unlock naturally, and at the end of each chapter, the summary will tell you how much you tore up that chapter, in case you want to keep track of your progress
 
 Nobody Has That Much Style‚Ķ (60 points)
Acquire 5,000 total Style Points
 Aquire 5,000 skill points, again, something that can't be done in one run through. Also, it is in the end of chapter summary, so you can keep track of your progress. Also, it is counting the overall acquiring of skill points, not how many skill points you have available, so there is no need to worry about holding off on your spending until this one is unlocked, also, only counts single player, not MP
 
 Meet John Woo (5 points)
Visit the Unlock Shop
 Just enter the unlock shop. He's the bartender, and just entering that menu will unlock the achievement
 
 Freedom! (10 points)
Purchase all of the Multiplayer characters in the Unlock Shop
 Unlock all the multiplayer characters in the unlock shop. It will cost about 5,350 style points, if my math is good.
 
 It's All Mine... (30 points)
Purchase every item in the Unlock Shop
 Unlock everything in the shop, for a total of 7,650 style points required, once again, if my math is good.
