You must Gold medal all 14 Slaughter Spree Challenges for this achievement. The Second-Rate sprees are not required.

Most sprees are already unlocked, the rest come through completing missions in the game and doing some other misc. things, here is the list and how to unlock them, along with the Gold requirements and some brief tips:

1. Armed and Invincible - Already unlocked - Gold: 20,000 points
---- You have 1 minute to rack up as much points as possible with a rocket launcher (you are invincible to damage) so go nuts. My top is about 30k, I would suggest focusing solely on blowing up vehicles as this will get you the most points, only shoot people if they are in a close group of 4+. No video.

2. Toast of the Town - Already unlocked - Gold: 60 people
---- You have 1 minute to light 60 people on fire and then break a fire hydrant. You start this challenge on fire, simply run into people to ignite them. I personally had a lot of issues with this one. The video shows best on what to do. This one usually comes down to luck in getting large groups of people.

3. Speed Kills! Shoe up! - Already unlocked - Gold: 500 points
---- In this challenge you are equipped with Speed Shoes, and you simply need to run people over. Very easy challenge, no real specific route you need to take. Although, moving up/ down the screen versus left/right there seems to be more people, and they spawn back faster.

4. Rocket Launch Time! - Already unlocked - Gold: 18 seconds
---- I really HATED this one, lots of luck involved here. You are armed with a rocket launcher (invincible to damage) and must rack up a total of 18 seconds in the air by shooting cars and/or people point blank. For me, shooting people seemed to shoot me farther than shooting cars. Hydrants seem to count, but street signs and walls do not count.

5. Reapin' it Real! - Complete the secondary mission Circle of Death: Baby's Ghost Daddy - Gold: 50 people
---- Another one based largely on luck running into large crowds. You are Death armed with a scythe and must score 50 kills. No real strategy, just move as fast as possible and don't run off after 1 person if there is a group nearby. Unfortunately, I could not find a video for this challenge.

6. Nice n' Clawed! - Unlocked after completing story mission set The Contraband Commando - Gold: 15 people
---- VERY TOUGH challenge here. Using the bionic claw you must throw 15 people into the water. You start on a peer, I simply went all the way one way, then all the way back. This should respawn people, hopefully you will get large groups. You'll want to get either directly above or below a person then hit them with the claw to throw them in. It sucks because if other people are close they will run off. Persistence is key with this challenge. The video posted, he doesn't even hit Gold, but it shows the gist of what needs to be done, but DO NOT leave the pier.

7. Drop 'em Like Flies! - Complete the story mission The Guest Star: Starstruck Airstrike - Gold: 20 kills
---- Pretty simple. Using a Hover Suit you must stomp 20 people. Hold "A" to hover, then "X" to stomp. Just go up and down the sidewalks, use your shadow to see when you want to stomp. If you get large groups this should be a cake walk. Another challenge with no video.

8. Tipsy Toadstool Trippin' - During the GO-GO Buster missions you will eventually enter The Paramour, inside to your right is a bartender, buy a drink with "Y" to unlock. - Gold: 20 points (10 kills)
----Armed with a baseball bat and a wavy screen, you must kill 10 people. Its harder than it seems, as most people will run off before you get your second killing swing in. Cops will come towards you so always kill them, and make sure to jump out of the way of incoming cop cars as it will sap from the scarce time you have to make the kills.

9. Hawaii D.U.I - Purchase a drink from Grog2go vending machine next to Grogbrushs bar (top left area of map) Gold: 250 points
---- You must run down people with a wavy screen. The trick here is to ditch your starting car and find a faster car. Once you get a faster car, simply go down the sidewalk, when you hit the end, go up the other side. Very easy.

10. Masked Massacre! - Unlocked after completing the Biff! Pow! Holy Cow! set of story missions - Gold: 650 points
----Very easy. Using Biffmans car you will need to run over as many people as possible. From your starting point go down the sidewalk, when you hit the end, go back up the sidewalk. Rinse and repeat and you should have no problem hitting Gold.

11. Tank it 2 the Max! - Already unlocked - Gold: 55,000 points
---- Using a tank you need to rack up 55k points. Keep the button held down! Even if you have a gap in kills holding the fire button down will keep your chain intact. Some luck is involved, don't chase after a single person/car, look for large groups of cars and keep moving. Pretty easy overall.

12. Flatten 50 in 50 - Already unlocked - Gold: 50 people in 35 seconds
----Using a steam roller you must flatten 50 people within 35 seconds. A tough challenge, lots of luck involved. Try going up/down sidewalks versus left/right. Also try following the route in the video, seems to work quite well.

13. Sweat Their Rides - Unlocked after completing the Sweat Bomber story missions - Gold: 50 cars
---- You must Sweat Bomb 50 cars. Simple, but can take a few tries. Try and find groups of cars and try and get more than one with a single bomb. Also, make sure not to get knocked back by cop cars/bikes as it eats precious time. Also, dont sweat bomb to early if you are falling back down to hit another car as you will waste time there as well.

14. Rocketproof Rampage - Unlocked after The Dark Bank Heist set of story missions - Gold: 20,000 points
---- You are equipped with a rocket launcher and speed shoes. The faster you're running the faster the rocket flies. I found this made no difference. Once the challenge starts run south out of the harbor complex and onto the street, then start shooting cars to hit your 20k. Very simple

Thats all of them, some of them don't have a corresponding video, but other than that they are in order going down the list.

Another thing to note is that sometimes the leaderboards and challenges can get a little buggy. As long as you see a gold medal with your score next to the challenge name then you are good. Here are a few examples that I personally ran into:

- The first two challenges I completed and got Gold, even though my score is on the leaderboard, when looking at the list instead of a medal with my score there were two "- -" (as if I had never done them). I had to redo those two challenges and get Gold again.

- On Rocket Launch Time, I got 19 seconds (Gold), but on the leaderboards it said my best time was 13 seconds (likewise the challenge was listed with the Gold medal and my 19 second time so I did not have to redo that challenge).

Not sure what causes these issues ( I was on LIVE at all times), but they shouldn't put to much of a dent in your progress if you run into them.

All videos are credited to the individual youtube accounts, as I used video from a few different users.
