    This is a pretty tough achievement to get so be prepared for the long haul. This achievement requires you to upgrade all weapons three times each. The weapons are: Garand, Thompson, Gewehr, Springfield, BAR, Karabiner 98K, Stg 44, M12 Shotgun, MP40, Colt .45, and C96 Mauser. You also have to upgrade the three types of grenades (Gammon, Frag, and Stick) as well as the Panzershrek and Recoilless Rifle.

    My suggestion to start is to just tear through the game on whatever difficulty you want, but Casual is probably the way to go for most. By the time you beat the game you will probably have fully upgraded about 5 weapons. Go back to Operation Husky (the first level) and play it over and over again to fill up the rest of the ones you can. Unfortunately a few weapons are only in certain places and these are the toughest to upgrade. Remember that you HAVE to reach a checkpoint for the upgrade to keep valid if you die.

    1. Recoilless Rifle: Located only in Operation Neptune. Taking out the tank helps big time.

    2. Panzershrek: Located in Operation Market Garden (on the bridge) and Der Flakturm. Try to get kills in groups.

    3. C96 Mauser: Very tough to upgrade because it is found in Operation Varsity in a safe. You can only use it in Varsity and Flakturm. The gun isn't very powerful and enemies take quite a few shots to take down. This can be very tedious. Try hard for headshots or melee kills. I found that Der Flakturm works best because the enemies tend to group up.

    I also found the Frag grenades tough to upgrade because you tend not to get extra after running out. Try to get groups as individual kills barely make the bar go up. I found Operation Neptune the best for these because you get quite a few and the enemies are in enclosed bunkers and can be easier to kill with grenades.

    AruakaPlay on Casual difficulty. For the rare weapons, when you are down to one shot , equip the weapon and use melee. The same goes for the grenade kills. Equip the grenade, play an easy mission (husky), and just melee enemies.

    CandidFever3The Panzerschreck can be found in Der Flakturm in a small room 3-4 levels down the tower from the top. It's one of the rooms where you have to destroy a control panel. I suggest reaching it at the beginning of the mission so you have more saving opportunities. The room has an outlook to the floor below. From there, you may probably be able to net enough kills to level up the weapon once. Once you're out of ammo, complete the next objective and die, then start killing the enemies around the AA guns surrounding the roof. Make sure to destroy a gun regularly to reach a new checkpoint. If you runout of enemies here, you can work on the big missile-launching AAs on the inside of the upper second floor of the building. Within one session, you should be able to max the weapon out.

    CandidFever3Also, the key to the Mauser is to fire fast. Just wait for the enemies to rush you and take them one by one. Once you have your target, the gun is very accurate.
