This achievement speaks for itself - simply kill one hundred enemies with the Snub Pistol in ranked matches.

As each player is equipped with a Snub Pistol at the start of each round, this achievement can be completed on any map.

A good way to get kills is to first down an enemy (with either the Lancer, Longshot, Boomshot ect.), and then take a couple of steps away from the downed enemy. Then pull out your pistol and take a couple of shots at them.

Be careful not to be too close when performing a pistol kill, otherwise it will sometimes be registerred as an execution kill (which won't net you the achievement).

heres a few tips for you guys.
when people leave the session the remaining peoples kills DO still count.
if you don't have enough people to start the game (you need 6 or 8) you can invite a friend to help start the game and they can drop once the game has begun and the remaining 5 or 7 can carry on without them in the game as it doesn't matter.
executions kills do not stack with pistol or chainsaw kills.
the only 2 that can stack are the longshot and headshot achievments.
be careful with the pistol kills as if you are to close to the person getting killed it might register as an execution, you can keep track of this by watching the kill symbol that appears on screen when somebody dies.
the hammer of dawn achievement should be got on the dlc map garden as its a straight line from both sides to the middle and the hammer of dawn spawns every round, the only other map is rooftops but that requires a lot of climbing to get to the middle.
a good all rounder for weapons kills is gridlock not raven down.
expect each round of first to 19 round wins (37 rounds) to last 40-50 minutes each and you will need to do about 4 rounds in order to get 100 kills per person in a 6 person session, this will take about 3 hours to get 1 person 1 100 kills achievement basically.
not all kills are kept track of in the all time ranked stats screen in the menu, for example hammer of dawn is not on there, so make notes of what you need inbetween games as only 2 people can only get about 90 kills in 1 6 person game.
don't bother going for torque bow or grenade kills in your sessions as people do just those kills in boosting sessions for seriously and they are available daily on t.a. and you will get them easily in those sessions.
I think that's everything, I hope that all helped. goodluck.
