    To upgrade a weapon simply keep using that weapon, every shot you get will fill up the gun shaped bar in the bottom right corner (faster if you get headshots/long range etc). You need to fill up the bar 3 times to fully upgrade 1 weapon and do this on 5 different weapons.

    Remember pistols and grenades count too

    To upgrade a weapon, you need to fill the outline of it in the lower right hand part of your screen three times. It gets harder with each increase, but it is easy enough to do.

    To make this achievement easier, I suggest you upgrade five 'easy' weapons. For this I suggest the Kar 98k, the MP40, the Thompson, and the M1 Garand. The Colt M1911 .45 pistol also counts so you could upgrade all the weapons before unlocking any other weapons. I suggest you keep blitzing through the first mission. It's the shortest mission in the game, and the easiest. However, doing the second mission isn't a bad idea at the same time. Play through the game using these weapons most and you'll get the achievement pretty easily.

    I suggest you use the pistol for most of the first mission as it features the weakest enemies and therefore makes it easier to use the pistol effectively. Below is a list of the five weapons, and what way I recommend completing them:

    Colt M1911 .45
    Kar 98k
    M1 Garand

    The MP40 arguably gets the best final upgrade, so if you get it later in the game you'll get more use out of it due to the tougher enemies. It's a dagger melee attack, should you be wondering.
