    Upgrade and equip one weapon in each of these slots to the top level for that slot, usually 4:

    1 Pistol (upgrade this first for explosive ammo, much fun)
    2 SMG
    3 Rifle
    4 Explosive (eg annihilator)
    5 Special (Level 4 sniper costs $200k before discount..)
    6 Melee (baseball bat, level 2)
    7 Thrown (any of the 4 grenades, but upgrading flash bangs is best as it gets you the Fart In A Jar weapon needed for the Stay Classy achievement)
    8 Shotgun

    Tips: make sure you own the gun store you buy the upgrades in for a discount. If you wait until you complete deckers.die mission you'll get another 25% discount. Money can easily be earned early on by going to the airport, stealing a helicopter from the pads opposite the gang activity and then repeatedly flying the barnstormer at the North end of the runway for $5,108.

    Lord Von Chimpwant to add here, it seems to be all 4 grenade types, not just one, i have level 4 pistol, SMG, shotgun, rifle, RPG and sniper, the level 2 baseball bat, and level 4 grendades, no achievement,

    just upgraded the other three grenade types to level 4, and the achievement popped after all 4 were upgraded

    it makes sense, it says all slots, and the grenades have 4 slots, might wanna switch that around, won't thumbs down or anything, cause a simple edit will solve that problem

    Also, it won't work using weapons that can't be upgraded past level 1 (I've tried).

    Upgrade all weapon slots to level 4 at the gun shop.

    Hint: Make sure you upgrade your baseball bat to level 2

    I missed that one and couldn't figure out why the achievement wasn't popping.

    FallenLegateI'm pretty sure what causes this to not work though it could just be coincidence. You must buy the level 1 weapon without previously owning it. Missions give you the level one of weapons and the reason why you never get it from upgrading them is because you already have the level 1 of the item. I bought the rocket launcher and never had achieved it through the story since I hadn't gone that far in. I had a ton of weapons already maxed out and the rocket launcher was the last of the normal weapons I had to fully upgrade and it popped. I still don't have level 4 on the energy weapons and I believe it was because I bought the rocket launcher then upgraded it to level 4 that it worked. Pretty sure this achievement is buggy because you get them free and it's probably set to be upgraded 4 times.

    Hanrec2I got a free upgrade in a mission but still had to purchase the unlock in the store as it wasn't padlocked or checked, thanks for the comment about the baseball bat I had over looked that, it popped as soon as I upgraded it.
