In order to get the Green Hyper Spray you must get a 10 star rank on your stats screen upon finishing the game and then start a new game and pick up the Green Hyper Spray from the motor home on Saul Street. In order to get a 10 star rank you must finish the game earning each of the 6 endings on a different save file, completing the sub scenario where you play as Maria; after that you will want to start a new game on Hard difficulty as well as Hard or "Extra" riddle difficulty.
On this play through you will have to collect at least 150 +8 items, finish the game using no more than 2 saves, finish the game in under 3 hours, kill a total of 75 enemies using melee attacks and 75 with guns, finish the boat stage in under 1m 20s, and take under 500 points of damage. Below are my stats when I received my 10 star rank as well as when I took damage and by what enemies. I do not know how much damage each enemy does, but I do know that the doormen (boss and regular enemies) do at least 40 or 50 points of damage each time they attack you. Also you CAN use the bullet multiplier option and it will NOT affect your ranking at all.
The extra items for the +8 section are Blue Gem, Chainsaw, White Chrism, Dog Key, Book of Lost Memories, Obsidian Goblet, Book of Crimson Ceremony and the Hyper Spray; their locations are in order in the walkthrough located below. And for all wondering, upon re-entering a room or area, and you see an enemy walking around again, I do not for sure if it will count as another kill. But I killed them and added as another kill to my list. If was a crawling spitter when I re-entered an area, then I would only kill it and add it if it stood up.
If you are finding the controls to be a bit tough to get used to, try going into the options and changing the control scheme to 2D instead of 3D. I personally found them easier to control and I found them to be easier to avoid enemies. But everyone's different, find which one works best for you.

Second save (after Eddie fight, before boat), no damage was taken.

What we had counted for kills:
Counter one is gun: 20
Counter two melee: 56

After first save (totals);
Counter three (gun): 82
Counter four (melee): 91

F.Y.I.: If you haven't installed the game to your hard drive, it should lag up as you get the 75th kill for shooting and/or melee (even if you've already had the achievements). The boat scene will lag up as well, but should be timed anyway.

I used this guide and walk through
I liked it better because the walk through was great! And I also went to the bridge location he mentions for kills. I also ran around a lot on the streets to kill enemies, since the first time I tried for the ten stars I was short on kills. I probably spent 10min or so trying to find extra enemies and as you can see by my finishing time, I could have ran around more.

If there is anything else that you think I should, change or fix. Please let me know. Good luck to all! If I hadn't had my girlfriend reading me the text guide and keeping track of my kills and damage, I would not have finished this.
