    Does not work on Ranger Hardcore as you can not use Quick save (Manual save)

    Quick method, Make sure you have 40 or more 'Chemical Resources'. This is used to clean your weapons.

    Find a crafting bench.
    Quick save.

    Now if your like me I had 2 very dirty guns that needed a full clean which used up about 40 of my chemical resources.

    You can get them fairly dirty by jumping in water, getting caught out in bad weather conditions etc.

    After I cleaned both my guns I backed out of crafting bench and then hit quick load. This should then spawn you back in front of the work bench with all your chemical resources still un-used but with the achievement tracker progress still increasing.

    So in short it goes like this

    Find a crafting bench
    Quick save
    Clean guns
    Back out of crafting bench
    Quick load
    Repeat the above

    Here is a clip for example

    You can earn this naturally if you would like but I thought I would post this for those who just want it out of the way toast

    M I K 3 ID vI did this in the main campaign before the Two Colonels released.
    As far as I’m aware. Any achievements outside of the DLC don’t track (Correct me if I’m wrong). Best way to do it is too find a bench in the VOLGA level.
    Even if you are playing on NG+ mode you can put a modifier on that makes the weather conditions more harsh meaning the guns will degrade faster.

    LordMakanakiThe higher the difficulty the more expensive cleaning weapons is, so if you're grinding this turn the difficulty up to hardcore.

    In this video guide I will show you a quick and easy way to spend 500 chemical resources on cleaning weapons. Now this can be done at anytime in the game, all you need is some chemicals and ammo. If you have full ammo or if not buy until the ammo is full. Then go outside and waste it all. Then go back to the workbench and make a quick save. Then go clean all your weapons then reload the quick load. Just repeat this until the achievement pops. Should take about 40 minutes if starting from scratch.
