To obtain this achievement you need to beat the 10 challenges for both the Shooting Range and the AI Arena.

Shooting Range:

Keep in mind that all the waves have a 25 score limit. Over time the targets become harder to hit and take more damage.

The first 8 waves are pretty straight forward, just aim for the square wooden targets, as the dummies take too much damage. I used 3x Tikhar Rifles with Reflex Scopes, Laser Sights & an Airtight Valve. The reason for this is threefold:

1. The Tikhar has 15 shots, which with full pressure instantly destroys the targets.
2. It fires as fast as you can pull the trigger and accurately, so if you slip up you can still compensate.
3. Having 3 of the guns allows for 45 shots without reloading, so when one runs out you can swap to the next and keep shooting.

The last two waves however consist solely of undead soldiers. These guys are very resilient to damage, and dodge like hell. After trying to take them out with the Prevet, I then had a great idea.

Simply use 3x Medved's (the grenade Launcher). These doozies instantly kill most enemies in their blast radius, which is pretty big and reload fast. There is an ammo box to the right wall you can use after exhausting all 3 guns. If you simply shoot for the enemy clusters you'll be fine.

AI Arena:

This area is more difficult than the last. The primary reason being that ammo is not obtainable from ammo boxes during these fights (although you can loot corpses for an occasional grenade or shotgun shell). Starting at 20 enemies to kill, it increases each challenge by 5 more enemies. You'll see Human enemies, Male Shrimps, Nosalis' & Watchmen.

For the first 8 waves all you'll really need are 2 Gatling guns & an Abzat (auto shotgun) I upgraded the Gatling gun with Five Barrel Assembly, Gatling Suppression and a Gatling Engine (You'll need the faster rate of fire). The Abzat was upgraded with a Muzzle brake, Laser Sight, Ammo Box & Auto-fire Adapter.

Then I simply stayed in the edge of the map where the several doorways are (left side) and camped by the doorway. When enemies came to the doorway I would unload with the Gatling gun (just keep the left trigger held down and fire in short bursts). The reason for two is that when one is used you can switch to the other then reload, with the Abzat as a close-range back-up. From 8-10 Undead enemies will replace the normal soldiers, and ammo gets very scarce. I then replaced one of the Gatling guns with the Flamethrower and used the same tactic, retreating further back when things got heated.
