    bet you're trying to figure out what the Lupara is for this achievement...

    its the double barrel (2 shot) shot gun.

    In reality, the achievement is completing chapter 8 start to finish with the Lupara. There is a point half way where you will wind up back outside. This is still considered the sewer. Keep playing using the Lupara until the achievement unlocks.

    If you get to the rat boss and do not have the achievement, you messed up somewhere. Technically, you are still in a sewer, but the rat boss is in chapter 9. restart chap 8 from the beginning.

    this achievement is easy, but highly obnoxious since the Lupara only holds 2 shots, is slow to reload, and the level will diarrhea so may rat enemies you will want to use a better gun.

    tips:

    - yes you can use chapter select to get directly to the sewer (once unlocked. its chapter 8)
    - set difficulty to easy
    - its better to rush the level jumping over and running from enemies only using the Lupara to push back and scatter enemies if you can't.
    - selecting 'restart checkpoint' will clear screen of enemies and does not cancel achievement. abuse this every time you get to a new checkpoint, it is extremely helpful.
    - I don't know if sub-weapons cancel out the achievement. I did not use them. Didn't need them. (seriously, just rush the level and restart checkpoint if there are too many enemies)

    addendum: previously there was a snarky comment here addressing the fact this achievement is straight forward and WTF are there so many down votes? do people not know what a sewer is? Apparently the thing throwing people off is the fact there's a very short bit of the level you briefly leave the sewer. Again, the achievement is completing all of chapter 8 with the Lupara. The outside bit is still considered "the sewer" so keep playing. Chapter 8 and 9 look nearly identical so the achievement should pop unexpectedly when 8 ends.

    Archer Spensepretty sure a lot of the negative votes stem from my original solution which was basically just, 'use the 2 shot shotgun'. pretty sure the confusion people had was, "Ok, I'm through the sewer and back outside and no achievement? wtf? downvote." not knowing 'the sewer' bit in the achievement description means chapter 8 in its entirety.

    The Lupara is your second gun, the one with the blue shotgun shells. Simply start the chapter The Sewers using chapter select, put game on easy difficulty. The chapter is fairly short and shouldn't take more than 5 minutes. Luckily you only have to do 1st section of the level and not the Rat boss, you can die as much as you like so just keep on trying

    Neophyte HybridI have no idea about the grenades. But I can confirm that if you accidentally shoot another gun and reload the previous checkpoint trough the pausemenu you will still earn the achievement. Just reload it before reaching a new one

    Hanrec2Thanks for the heads up it was the one with the blue shotgun shells, you may wish to add to your solution that you will not have enough shot gun shells to kill all enimies, so preserve your shells to kill mutiple enimies when cornered or swamped so you can blast your way free. This worked for me as I ran out of shells after the first check point, luckily there are resupplies near each checkpoint.

    JORAXThis solution tells me almost nothing that the achievement description doesn't already cover. Can I use gernades/molotovs? Any tips for sections you can skip without killing things (I'm having zero luck with this so far). Personally I got about 3 checkpoints in and could progress no further due to lack of ammo and the sheer number of enemies to try and wade through.
