    Every weapon here can be obtained by collecting the "Weapon" pick up from defeated enemies. The game also includes 5 bonus weapons:

    Zero Laser Rifle *BONUS EASY*
    ZE Launcher *BONUS NORMAL*
    Y20 Impulse *BONUS HARD*
    PX50 Bound Shot *BONUS HARDEST*
    Genocide Gun *BONUS INFERNO*

    These 5 weapons can only be obtained for completing every single level in the game on the corresponding difficulty.

    I suggest going for this achievement last. After completing every level on every difficulty, use this list to locate the few weapons (if any) you still need. The level that I personally used for farming the last few weapons was the level titled "Assault." Simply run around on inferno killing the enemy Ravengers. If it is too hard, then destroy 1 or 2 of the 3 Dropships from the start. Just keep killing and picking up items and you will be fully loaded by the end of the level.

    NOTE: there is a maximum # of how many items can be on the map at one time, so pick up items along with killing enemies.

    S3phiroth19I despise this achievement so much, i'll gladly take Inferno all over again over this RNG crap, i've been farming a damn Stingray MF for over 8 hours which is about how long it took me to beat inferno

    @MastaGus You got really, really lucky there
    I used all the 'new' weapons and it isn't working for me

    I farm Mission 30 that it's supposed to be the earliest mission it can drop and it also has infinite spawns while being easier to clear than Mission 52

    I don't like using Mission 40 because i ALWAYS get some retarded red ant that likes to wander all the way to the other side of the map and lose a lot of time going to kill it
    Mission 46 while fast to clear it just has very few drops to my liking

    As a note, there doesn't seem to be a cap on how many items of each type can be on the map, i know the global cap is 100 but i tried to grab just the weapon crates and leave everything else to see if it came to a point where i just got weapons 100% of the time, so there's no easy way to get this, just lots and lots of patience.

    I have found that each weapon can spawn more frequently from different missions. Here's a full list of weapons and the missions that will start to have a chance of that weapon dropping. In order of difficulty and stage order within each difficulty. I left easy out as they are the same drops as normal difficulty.

    GodLike499I would give this solution a +1, if only I had an achievement unlocked in this game! I hate launch titles that have so few achievements.

    Only posting this as solution as there are loads of comments on SecondHALONICK's solution, his has all the details.
    Just to add I myself was left with just needing the Lysander Z gun after completing everything else. Various searches on the internet had lots of people saying they found it on level 46 as one of the shorter levels you can churn through. I averaged about 2 weapons per level with this as some get stuck high up etc.

    I finally got this by playing inferno (level 52) on inferno. I setup a 2nd controller with dual ZEXR guns. then I had the genocide gun (for completing inferno) and lysander F. start by shooting the ants straight ahead with genocide gun (get around 2 hits), setup the 2 lots of ZEXR, then have your main char jump on top of the tank to give a better view to safely shoot the genocide. delay the use of ZEXR so there is around a 10 second gap and have player 2 retreat back behind the tank you're standing on. Be very careful about shooting as any ants/ships that pass in front will mean instant death due to large blast radius. Leave 1 ravager alive whilst collecting weapon drops and reloading zexr on player 2. Then snipe the ships with player 1 in between the odd shot into ants/giant ants.

    For general weapons I mainly played level 40 with dual ZEXRs, just roll around a bit and dash forward to grab drops. Again try to leave 10 second delay between activating to allow an overlap so you're not as vulnerable.

    Good luck!
