    Gun Master is a type of free for all gametype, but with a team. Even though you're in teams, only one person can win. You start out with a simple handgun (Mp443 I believe) and for each and every gun you have to obtain a few kills, 2.

    This is a lot like Gun Game in Blops and CS, there are 17 different weapons to aquire before you win. The final "gun" is the knife and here you only need one.

    Full list of guns, sorted in NAME, TYPE OF GUN and NUMBER OF KILLS

    1. MP443 - Single fire pistol - 2
    2. 93R - 3-burst fire pistol - 2
    3. .44 Magnum - Single fire pistol - 2
    4. PP19 - Submachine gun - 2
    5. P90 - Submachine gun - 2
    6. SPAS-12 - Pump-action shotgun - 2
    7. MK3A1 - Automatic shotgun - 2
    8. ACW-R - Carbine - 2
    9. MTAR-21 - Carbine - 2
    10. AUG A3 - Assault rifle - 2
    11. SCAR-L - Assault rifle - 2
    12. LSAT - LMG - 2
    13. L86A2 - LMG - 2
    14. M417 - Semi-automatic sniper rifle - 2
    15. JNG-90 - Bolt-action sniper - 2
    16. M320 LVG - Grenade launcher(Does not blow up on direct impact) - 1
    17.Knife - self-explanatory - 1

    The trick here is to be quick with your pistol kills or else you'll be facing machine guns and shotguns. This will take a few tries, but eventually you will get lucky and win the game!

    All of the CQ weapons in gun master can help you towards the 10 kills with each weapon achievement.
    In-game, at the bottom of your screen, you can see a progress bar. This will help you to see where other players are and on what kind of gun.

    Mobius EvalonI had to try a different server. Joined in progress on one server, completed it and two full rounds, no achievement. Quit that lobby and joined another server in progress, got the achievement at round end.

    EarthboundXFrom what I can tell, you have to win for this to pop, not just play a game. Twice now it's only popped for the winner in my server.

    Maybe a patch messed/changed the requirements at one point?

    To unlock this achievement you must play one game of Gun Master. It does not matter in what place you finish. However, the achievement will not unlock if you join a game in progress. You must finish one ENTIRE game to unlock the achievement.

    All you have to do is complete a round. But I recommend trying, so you can get kills with the new weapons. This is a video I made to help out!
