This is the best Secret guide I could find. The guide is accurate enough to get you the achievement with little problems. I couldn't find the first secret with the shotgun, but the rest were a breeze in the first level.

NOTE PLEASE READ: This can be done with multiple playthroughs, but YOU MUST collect the secrets you DIDN'T pick up last playthrough. (Thanks ZombieMaze - psybOltOn)

If you have problems with it please save your negative votes and help me make it better by commenting. I will be tuning it as I use it, but I rather the community help speed things along. (Thanks SnelleSjonnie - XxDerUeblexX)
