    You will need to rank up to at least Level 19 to receive enough diamonds to unlock all weapons ( higher if you have reset your diamonds at any point )

    To make things a little easier, I've listed the number of weapon kills (Maintenance Manual) , executions (Operations Manual) & headshot/ Multikills (Bandoliers) you will need to achieve, in the same order as that found on the in-game Player Statistics page, and also included the class and level for each weapon.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    Edit: According to Timutimu the Carl-G multikills is meant to be 200, I can't recall as it was a long time ago now, funny that
    no-one else picked up on it.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    2nd Edit : I've changed Carl-G back to 100 multi-kills after several people have reconfirmed what I had originally. Thanks guys.

    This achievement requires hundreds of kills, executions, multikills, and head shots.
    -Kills are anytime you've put down another player but they are still able to be revived.
    - Executions happen when you shoot a player who is down and waiting to be revived.
    - Headshots are kills that take down a player and leave them unable to be revived. Headshots do not count towards "Kills".
    -Multikills require you to kill 2 or more players at once.
    This is my method for getting this achievement somewhat quickly. You will need 2 xbox's and 2 copies of the game, or a friend who will join your match and then walk away until you are done boosting.
    First download the Renavista map. It is a user created map, you'll find it in the "approved for ranked play" list. Use your main account to set up a custom match of Uprising. Set the map as renavista, respawn time 5sec, and turn off voting. Launch the match and then search for a custom game of Uprising with your secondary account. Join the match, usually your game will be the only one listed. As soon as the dummy joins, force launch the game. If anyone else ends up in your lobby you need to ban them. A quick force launch avoids you making someone sit through the loading screens only to be banned when the match starts.
    You will be the APR captain, run across the bridge connecting the two sides of the river. You will find the your dummy standing in the computer room. Kill them and then stand near their body until they respawn. If you face the computers and look to your right you will see an ammo crate. The dummy will have respawned just past this crate near the windows overlooking the river. Run over to him, kill him and stand next to the body until they respawn, which will be back at the first spot. As long as you stay in the area of the kill, the respawn point will alternate between these two spots. If you run around to much they will respawn somewhere else You just need to run between the 2 points and get as many kills as you can in the 15 minutes you have. I can get about 30-40 kills every match. It depends a lot on which weapon you are boosting. Some are very slow to reload(dart rifle) or very slow to kill(flare gun) or they may jam and break after a dozen shots.
    This will also help you level up fast. You should get to rank 20+ by the time you are done.
    To get the multikills, I like to use this same map. Get 2 boosting partners. Have them join your custom match. You should be alone on the APR team. Meet at "point A" on the bridge. There are two ammo boxes in the middle- you'll need these. The dying team should stand by a wall so that when you miss with your rocket or grenade it still explodes near them.If everyone is quick you can get 20-40 multikills per round. When on the dying team always fire your weapon when you respawn, you are invulnerable for awhile after you respawn and shooting will clear your "shields". (Thanks xxspazemxx for pointing that out to me.)
    If you have 2 360's you can do this with one other person. You may get slightly fewer kills per round due to running 2 controllers, but you will get more kills per hour.
    Last Bastion is also very good for Multi-kills.

    To achieve this you must first unlock all the guns and get executions, headshots and kills to get the manuals. With explosives you need to get multikills to rank it up.

    Fist, search for the custom map "Boosting v2" that I created and download it. Now when you go to host a map and you are at the map selection screen, you need to unplug either a USB drive or memory card, and then plug it back in. It doesnt matter where the map is saved, it can even be on the hard drive. You will now be able to boost the manuals in a RANKED game on a CUSTOM map!

    All you do is play Uprising or Capture the Diamond and spend the full 15 minutes killing. Playing against 1 person you can get up to 85 kills per game but 2 accounts will double that (plus you need multikills anyway). Now the people getting killed will need to turbo Right Trigger. If you dont, then there will be a brief respawn invulnerability. Now just sit by the ammo boxes and kill as fast as you can.

    I have a made a spreadsheet so you can fill in your current stats and estimate how much time you have left to boost. (you must save the file if you want to edit it).

    You will need to rank up to level 19 (1 diamond per level, 18 diamonds needed) to receive enough diamonds to unlock all weapons. You can also use the warlord glitch to receive enough diamonds if you don't want to wait.
    NOTE: If you are using the warlord glitch you would unlock your rank achievements out of order because you have to derank to unlock level 20, 10 and 5.
    Solution for Warlord in Far Cry 2

    Now you have to download the custom map "were not boosting".

    ----UPDATE----
    JamP0und32 mentioned that he improved this map (like capturing 3 points instead of 2). It is called "JPs Boost Paradise". Thanks for the information.
    ----/UPDATE----

    Copy this map to your usb flash drive. Remove the flash drive when you are done.
    Create a RANKED uprising match and go to the map selection screen. At this point you can only see the original maps. Plug in your usb flash drive and you will see your custom maps. Add "were not boosting" and load up the lobby. Make sure you have activated hardcore mode and also reduced the respawn time. The player who is going for the kills has to move once for a better position. I suggest to stop at 1500XP if you still need XP for ranking up. Just capture 2 points at the same time to end the match!

    Uprising is a really good mode because you get a lot of XP for killing the team captain. So when you are boosting with a 3rd account do not forget that you can switch captain to the player who is getting killed.

    And here once again the kills you need:

    Okay, so me and a friend have come up with a spawn trick for the map Last Bastion that only works in deathmatch. This solution eliminates the need for a third person to obtain this achievement.

    While we were boosting normal weapon kills, we found we were only getting 16-18 kills per deathmatch, which is normal. But by using this method we were able to get at least 20-22 kills each game, this is substantial for an achievement that takes this amount of time. By using this method you gain an extra 4 kills a game, so in 4-5 games of using this method you have completed 6-7 if you were not.

    So what you have got to do is actually very VERY simple. Meet in the middle of the map, on top of the grates looking downstairs next to the ammo pile near the broken cart. Now before you start killing, break all 3 sides of the cart so it is just the bed and the wheel left. Then one of you takes a kill THEN (this is the important part) the killer hops up on to the wheel of the broken cart and faces towards the UFLL base.

    THAT'S IT! It is amazingly simple to set up, and it's not difficult to do by any stretch of the imagination. After a kill is made the killer has to go to the cart, no matter what. By using this method 95% of the time you will spawn on the first or second level of the map, effectively eliminating the towers (I have yet to spawn in a tower using this method).

    If anyone has any questions on how to use this method leave it in the comments below, or PM me and I would be glad to show you what I mean in-game!

    Best of luck people, and happy boosting!

    This will take you the rest of your life if you tried legit. People still play online but the amount of weapons and types of kills needed would make this very difficult.

    Consider cheating. I found the following method very productive:

    1. 2 xboxes, 2 copies of the game, 1 turbo controller (for dummy account)
    2. A friend to jump in for a couple of evenings (multikills only)
    3. Ability to perform the "custom map in ranked match" glitch
    4. A custom Uprising map which is small, has plenty of ammo crates, and a very small range of spawn points for both teams (either find one or create one for yourself)

    You don't need a spreadsheet to work out kills etc, just look at the loadout as it will show you your progress for each class, weapon and type of kill required.

    I would recommend you start without setting any diamonds, and work on one class. As you finish a weapon in the class, add the appropriate diamond to open up the next weapon. Once you have finished your first class reset your diamonds.

    Why reset? Because there is a very strong possibility that you will need to do it at some point if you haven't done the rank 30 glitch. If you reset at a lower rank, you lose less xp, which will help you reach rank 20 quicker.

    Of course, if you have glitched rank 30 prior to doing the weapons then do not worry about resetting diamonds.

    Your dummy account should be setup to shoot downwards (to avoid killing you or teammates, and to remove the spawn shield as soon as they spawn).

    When you have done the headshots and executions for a gun, and only need to do the kills, consider using this setup:
    Turbo controller is hitting Y to revive a second guy you are shooting. With a little tweaking you can kill over and over. I'm not sure if it saves that much time (not needing to wait for respawns), but appeared to speed things up when I did it.

    Sometimes I needed to press B on the dummy account as it got stuck in a menu when entering the game - you can tell if this happens as the dummy would not have spawned at the start of the game. It didn't always happen.

    Good luck, with a little effort you can get this done within 2 weeks, including rank 20/30.

    This is how to boost weapons on FC 2. Hope this helps. Here's the guide written by SIL3NCEikillyou:

    The first thing you need to know about boosting this game is that you should you should do it in uprising. In deathmatch you will only get 15 exp per kill, but in uprising you'll get 30 everytime you kill the captain, and most of the time, the person you're killing should be the captain.

    For these weapon kills, you will need to have x amount of kills, headshots, executions or multikills. Any time you injure a person so that he is 'down,' it counts as a kill. To do executions, you have to down the person and then shoot him further so that he cannot be healed... aka so that he actually dies. This can only be done in uprising or capture the diamond, where team members will actually be around to heal the person. In deathmatch, the person just dies automatically. Headshots, (obviously gotten by shooting the person in the head) will kill the person so that they can't be healed, and they will count neither as kills or executions. Headshots are only headshots. And though common sense would tell you that one shot in the head will kill the person every time, some guns take more than one shot. And finally, multikills only apply to the explosive weapons. You will need another person on the opposing team for multikills (preferrably a dummy so that you won't have to worry about exp for a third person).

    Now for some details about how the spawning works in Far Cry 2. Each team in this game has a set area where they will spawn. The team spawn areas will be across the map from each other, and the host team always gets one side and the other players get the other. If you're boosting with just two people, you'll be spawning at the exact same spot at the beginning of each match. The only way your spawn point will change after that is if you get killed too close to the spawn point, if an enemy is in the spawn point, or if the spawn point is on fire... which does happen. If one of these is the case, you'll simply spawn at one of a few points close by the original spawn point.

    The best way my boosting partner and I found to do the weapon kills was to play uprising on the Dirty Work map. No water to deal with, very few buildings cluttering the map, and there aren't multiple levels like in Last Bastion. Take turns every match working on kills. For the person being killed, all you will usually have to do the whole match will be to fire your weapon right when you spawn, which will get rid of your temporary invincibility. For the killer, you will have to run across the map to the other person's spawn area, and kill him as fast as you can. He'll die, respawn close by, and you can kill him again. In a couple matches, you will memorize the handful of places he will spawn and be killing him quickly.

    Your killing strategy will be different for different weapons. The easiest weapons will be the snipers, because for the most part you'll be able to stand at a central point in your opponent's spawning area and just kill him each time he spawns. For weapons with less range, you'll have to run up to the person and do the shooting. And with multikills, make sure both enemies are standing together, weaken them if needed (because some explosives will not kill even with a direct hit) and kill them both. And for kills and kills only, you can also use a dummy to speed up the process by healing the person being killed so that the killer can kill him again right away. Having a turbo controller to turbo Y is great for this.

    Another thing to note is that you should do executions before kills, as they always get you both kills and executions. This video, uploaded by KiNG Y0Y0, who was my boosting buddy, will show the process for each type of kill on the UFLL side of the map. When the other person is doing the killing, he'll have to run to the APR side which is just as simple as far as where the spawn points are.

    Hope this helps!
