Whilst the other guide up here is great, its far from the fastest.
First of all make sure you have completed all the campaign, and got all the arcade achievements so your pretty high with the kill count
Arcade mode is a good way to get kills but there is a faster way


Load up the very last checkpoint where you have to destroy the 4 dark fountains (if you have overwritten this checkpoint you will have to go through the last level again) now run around and activate all the fountains, This will cause virtually an endless stream of enemies coming towards you.

I found the best place to stand was just in front of the dark fountain in front of the projector room so your back is towards the car park.

Enemies will come from pretty much straight in front of you but watch out to your sides occasionally.

And the best part is that when you run out of ammo there is an ammo box and a safe haven just behind you (if your facing the projector room its to your back right)
Even if you die the kills still count

It took me about 40 minutes of play time to do this
Happy Grinding :)
