As per AdamRawrr's solution just with a few notes: - gone - see below for the list of maps required.

- Do Survival and Sharpshooter together and then Team Survival and Team Sharpshooter together as switching between these modes does not require the game to be reloaded. This just saves a bit of time.

- I believe having the Redux maps will cause this achievement to glitch. My friend and I did this together. I had never downloaded the maps before and the achievement unlocked for me no problem. My friend had the maps before but had since deleted them. Unfortunately the achievement still didn't pop for him. After reading some posts, most people seem to recommend deleting the maps and clearing the 360 cache before trying for this achievement, although it's not guaranteed to work. Definitely do some research on this beforehand as I'm only posting this as a potential warning to save people some time.

Update 09/01/10:
My friend and I tried this again today to try and go for his achievement. He cleared his cache, transferred his profile onto a memory unit and removed his hdd. Playing this way sadly did not work. I'm not sure what you can do at this point :? If we ever come across a solution I'll update this post.

Update 04/02/10:
My friend and I tried this again using chris 7urbo's solution of playing the Redux maps on Survival and Sharpshooter.

We played (in order):
Bordertown Redux - Survival (he won)
Streets Redux - Survival (he won)
Killhouse Redux - Survival (he won)

Bordertown Redux - Sharpshooter (he won)
Streets Redux - Sharpshooter (he won)
Killhouse Redux - Sharpshooter (he won)

The achievement didn't unlock here however, we had to play another match which was Bordertown Redux - Team Sharpshooter (I won) and my friend received the achievement at the end of this match :) I'm not sure if this last match has to be specifically Team Sharpshooter on Bordertown Redux or if it can be any, but there you go.

Update 03/08/10:
Unfortunately it looks like the solution above may not work for everyone so there could be a possibility here that the achievement may be unobtainable for you.

Update: 26/08/11:
Just updating this guide with a list of maps required.

There are 57 total from the original and you may have to potentially play through the Redux maps as well if you have already downloaded the DLC. As mentioned so many times, this achievement is glitched to those who have the DLC. You may try to play on the Redux maps if you do not wish to reset your stats (from MCSS Aerocoupe's solution), but there's no guarantee it'll work.

Edit 18/03/13: Make sure you watch out for the name of the mode. Sometimes, even though you might have selected Team Survival, it will say Team Sharpshooter instead but will still play like Team Survival. Keep restarting until you have the right name because there may be an issue with that.
Edit 02/04/13: Mobius Evalon: "All you have to do to remedy this is open Match Settings, Switch to Team Sharpshooter, switch back to Team Survival, then Accept the changes. When the other people in the lobby see "Team Survival" at the bottom right of the lobby screen again, you've fixed the glitch."

The modes are (play them in this order to minimise loading time):
- Attack & Defend
- Survival
- Sharpshooter
- Team Survival
- Team Sharpshooter
- Retrieval

The maps are:
Border Town
- All modes
Calypso Casino
- All modes
Casino Vault
- All modes except Attack & Defend
- All modes
- All modes
Kill House
- All modes except Attack & Defend
- All modes
LVU Campus
- All modes
Research Labs
- All modes
- All modes except Attack & Defend

If the achievement hasn't popped at this stage you could try playing on the Redux maps. See my update above for the 04/02/10.
