To unlock arena mode, pick 'mission' and use your bomb (LT) on the exit door instead of picking up the core.

The achievement is for kills in a game, not cumulatively. This can be a bit tricky, since it's really easy for a bunch of red crates to spawn in next to you and hoover off most of your health and the screen starts glitching as you get more kills. I found some tricks that worked really well for me, though.

* I used the default ship with the splinter shot and all slots filled with health upgrades. You'll upgrade things while playing and arcade mode is a great way to grind things out since you have unlimited ammo and there are so many crates and enemies.
* When you spawn in, fly around, murdering everything on the screen and picking up powerups until you get to about 50 kills. The splinter shot will easily keep the screen clear of these early enemies. Just hold down the right trigger as you fly. You've got unlimited ammo, so go bananas.
* If you can, grab seeker ammo for your second ammo type. A couple times I had an enemy that was strong against the splinter shot sneak into my campsite, so it's handy to have a complementary ammo type to switch to if this happens.
* When you get to about 50 kills or so, tougher enemies will start to appear. Fly back to the starting point and hide at the bottom. You can shoot up and the splinter shot fragments will still fly out and hit enemies. You can also pop up and shoot directly out the sides to hurry things along, but this is a bit riskier.
* If you take any damage, your health will regenerate, so just be a more conservative camper while you build your health back up. Watch out for the enemies that shoot exploding ammo since this can hit you through the wall. In my successful run, these enemies kept to the left side so I just hugged the right wall of my campsite to stay safe.

It takes a little while to accumulate enough kills, but this method should net you all three achievements in a few tries.

The achievement unlocks shortly after you hit 200 enemies (there's a counter in the top center of the screen). You don't need to finish the game.
