    Mack StardustThe video or guide doesn't overtly mention this at all so I thought I'd add this myself.

    There are several story and side missions that need to be beaten to access all weapons.
    You must complete the story up to Case 5-2, for the katana from the boss fight with the twins as well as the weapon cases on the top of Fortune City Hotel.

    There are also weapons only usable from completing side missions and psychopaths.

    Psychopath: Here Comes The Groom (Giant Pink Chainsaw)
    Side Mission: Two's Company (Comedy Trophy)
    Psychopath: World's Most Dangerous Trick (Magician Sword)

    Just a small Warning for "AHGreg's" solution, and "Viorel Nicolae's" video guide, above.

    there is no "note" or warning in the actual video, but you actually NEED to progress in the story and even do some side quests for certain weapons to be available.

    Fast forward toward the end of the video at the, melee item number 136 at the 6:40s mark.


    a specific list of the items needed thru progression are,


    Giant Pink Chainsaw - Side quest "Here Comes the Groom"

    Katana Sword - Case 4-1

    Military Case - Case 5-2

    Comedy Trophy - Side Quest " Two Companies" ( go hit a zombie with it BEFORE giving it to either comedian to take them to the safe house.)

    Magician Sword - Side Quest "World's Most Dangerous Trick"


    reading the comments on youtube, this achievement might be cumulative thru multiple playthroughs, though i would suggest trying it in one.
