Original solution on 360 by "Batman5273"

this walkthrough is intended for people who want a way to get all firearms consecutively. it is possible to do this with a level one character but obviously it is easier and faster to do with a leveled up character. i would advise you to pick up every weapon i list here although you might have gotten quite a few weapons before. this will ensure that you don't get lost along the way or miss any items. also do use all weapons as soon as you pick them up so you don't get confused which items you already used. furthermore i would advise to get a kill with every weapon possible just to make sure the achievement really pops. you should only have to hit a zombie with the weapon but as the achievement has proven dodgy before just get the kill, it will not take much more time than doing this without getting the kill.

against contrary believe, you will not have to have access to the underground lab to finish this achievement. though you will have to have succesfully finished case 2-2 (one of the earlier cases of the game) and you will also have to have completed the mission WWJWD? (which will appear on DAY 3 at 4:00AM) in order to get the achievement.

the achievement will be doable in only some minutes so it is possible to do this with only a few hours left on the clock or in overtime mode.

i will start my walkthrough at the safe house to avoid any mix ups or confusion.


head out of the safe house, to the royal flush plaza and from there switch over to the slot ranch casino. make your way to the vending machines at the back of the food court, climb onto them and from there jump towards the wooden walkway which connects the whole eastern store front of the food court. run along the walkway and jump down onto the awning of hungry joe's pizzeria.

now go back to the slot ranch casino and leave towards the silver strip. cross the street, enter hot excitorama and make your way to the palisades mall via the back door and the side street. use the escalator to get to the second floor and visit the high-noon shooting range.

handgun - high-noon shooting range - in a show case
shotgun - high-noon shooting range - on a shelf
sniper rifle - high-noon shooting range - on a shelf

go back down the escalator and head towards the water lounge thingy in the middle of the mall. grab the lmg (on a rock to the right of the southern entrance). the lmg will only spawn if no lmg is in your inventory or no active psychopaths are in the area.

take the underground access, get on the bike and drive until you come upon the underground access area of the americana casino. get into the maintenance room and grab the merc assault rifle.

get back up on your bike and drive to the next ramp on your left. get up there and pick up the:

blast frequency gun - underground - on a ramp in the north-western curve of the underground tunnels
(it is not possible to kill normal zombies with this gun, only gas zombies can be killed. don't worry though, hitting a few normal zombies with the b.f.g. is absolutely adequate.)

once back on your bike, turn around and head for the south plaza underground access.

enter the plaza and head to your left. either do the WWJWD? mission now or have a look at the buzz saw by the statue to get the six-shooter (if you have done the mission before).
