    This is a solution that I am writing for each of the Kill 100 enemies with a specific weapon class achievements. I am currently working on these achievement myself, so the following solutions are what has worked best for me. My current rank is a Major, mostly earned through player matches, so I have been playing for some time now. Alright here are the weapons classes, followed by a detailed summary of the specific class.

    Pistols: Glock 18c or Desert Eagle

    Sub-Machine Guns: P90 or Type 05

    Shotguns: XM26-LSS or Tactical 500

    Assualt Rifles: FAMAS or 552 Commando

    Light Machine Gun: MG36 or MK46

    Sniper Rifle: PSG1 or SR-25 SD

    The Glock 18 is a full auto hand gun. Biggest problem is the kick and the terribly small clip. USE a clip extender. If you are an experienced player I suggest dropping the armor and grabbing a Desert Eagle. The Desert Eagle take 1 to 2 bullets to kill depending on the persons armor. Speed will be your friend here. Run around capping people and continue running. Don't sit and camp at all. The Desert Eagle although less powerful than the Raging Bull, gives you a clip allowing for a much faster rate of fire than the Bull.

    The Desert Eagle is easily the best sidearm for the job here. You will unlock it after Level 4 Assault ACES (120 Points). Don't be afraid to use it, usually you can kill with one shot - using the laser sight can help a great deal in tight situations.

    Alternatively, you could wait until CQB Level 8 for the Glock 18. This pistol is fully automatic, albeit, quite inaccurate, yet you can still make quick kills with it.

    100 kills means cumulative, not all in one match, balance your use of the pistol with other weapons because it will help you get the other weapon achievements.
