To unlock '.45 old school' you need 45 kills with the M1911 handgun in multiplayer.

This can be in any mode on any map.

Now, the M1911 is the 7th gun you will unlock down the handgun route. Starting with the M9, you must earn 5000 XP to unlock the next handgun, and then keep earning XP with handguns until the M1911 is unlocked. This will take 34,000 XP with pistols.

A thing to note - The 4th secondary firearm you unlock is the 'Shorty 12G'. Despite being in the handgun track, this gun does NOT give XP towards that same track. It gives XP to shotguns, so if your trying to unlock the M1911 for this achievement, do not use the Shorty.

If your playing normally (I unlocked this legit the very same round I hit rank 25) I would suggest playing conquest. You'll get mega points, and plenty of pistol opportunities.

If you want it out of the way as fast as possible, you can just run around in TDM with only your pistol out.

If you want it done fast, especially using tdm with only a pistol, use xp boosts you have as this will help speed the xp gain up.

I'd also recommend unlocking the 3rd pistol, the MP443 then just sticking with that. It's personal preference, but I found that the best pistol there is.

NOTE If you already have this achievement on the 360 version, it will pop in the first round on the X1. However, the X1 version doesn't backtrack to pop in the 360 version.
