    This achievement can be obtained in player matches as well as ranked matches. To get this achievement, you have to WIN 50 rounds of a merc. To WIN as a merc you have to escape the heist with the most money. To escape with the most money, you either have to be the only one to escape, or escape as a traitor with the most money. I know a merc is a traitor, but just to explain it better, I will class a merc as someone who escapes with their gamertag white. So, if two mercs escape in a round, they split the money between them and therefore none of them win as they both have the same money. To WIN a round as a merc, you have to be the only person that has their gamertag white.
    To WIN as a traitor, you need to have the most money after you have escaped. A traitor doesn't split their money with the merc they escaped with so for example if a traitor escapes with $1million and a merc (white gamertag) escapes with $800 thousand, the traitor would win as they escaped with the most money and doesn't split it. So to recap the achievement, you can only win as a merc if you escape with the most money by being the only merc to escape or having the most money when escaping as a traitor. Hope this guide helps for this confusing (and fustrating!) achievement.

    Toombs2008I got Mr. Play It Straight when I killed nobody (neither the bots nor the traitors) and collected only 90% of all the money. I played on Hot Coffee with 4 friends. I was the only person who escaped.
    My stasts page says:
    Total Heast Joined: 330
    Heast Escaped : 76
    Heast Escaped as Traitor: 1

    By the way I had exactly 100 traitor kills when I got Mr. Popularity, so it is not glitched.
    Traitor kills: 131
    Personal Revenge Kills: 31
    131-31=100 :D

    Like others allready said, you need to escape as a merc, and you need to be the only merc who escapes in a round (that means you need to be the only player with a WHITE name who escapes!) but you don't need any money. Escapes as a traitor doesn't count (orange). realy.

    Host 3 rounds, 3 minutes, 4 players on hot coffee. There will be 2 cars for extraction. Just go slowly, and don't shoot any of the KI guys, let the other guys do the work.
    The first car will arrive in the moment you exit the diner at the backdoor. The most players don't recognize that there will be only one more car for escape after the first. They mostly go for the money in the warehouse, and if you were slow at beginning, the last car will arive bevor they can collect all the money from the warehouse. So take the car and escape. This worked great for me xD
