I found Level 28 (Observatory) to be a great place to boost your weapons kills.

At the very start of the level, run all the way to the left side of the screen. You can stand here for a few moments without any enemies hitting you. Once the words "Wave 2" flash on the screen, run to the center of the stage (you will get hit once at this point). In the center, you will be clear of enemies again (due to the force fields).

At this point, one of the powerup weapons will have appeared (or will very shortly). Pick it up and start getting your kills. Don't worry about getting hit at this point. Kills count regardless if you start over or die.

-Upgrading weapons using coins will help getting kills.
-Weapon powerups are based on shots fired, not time. So you won't run out of a weapon until you fire off all the shots (meter in the bottom left corner) or pick up a new weapon. Don't feel like you need to fire off all your rounds immediately.
-Weapon powerup spawns are based on timed intervals. Even if you are holding a weapon, new ones will continue to spawn.


Although holding down the 'A' button will fire a continuous beam, you can also tap the button to fire a quick shot which is still enough to take out columns of weaker enemies.

Since this is one of the earliest unlockable weapons, it should be one of the first for 1000 kill achievement.

You can also use the freeze or invincibility special to help kill enemies without fear of getting killed.
