    Best way I found so far to grind out the coins after you completed everything else is to play the game once a day and to run around all of the map locations to collect the coin boxes and do the side quest plus the daily challanges.

    For this you will want to have the perk that lets you see the collectibles on your mini-map as it will show you the locations of the boxes. First up grab your daily/weekly challanges in the katakombs and then travel to each location one after the other. Every 24 hours the boxes will respawn and you will be able to grab the 50 to 100 coins from each box. Do every side quest that you get over your radio as it will give you about 200 extra coins.

    Every day I would get about 6000-7000 coins a day. I would say that translates to about 7-10% of the achievement progress dependant on the upgrades you have left.

    After completing the story and all of the side mission I had about 50% of the game done. So there was a whole lot more to grind out.
    Luckily you will likely unlock every other achievement you have got left while doing this because there are always a lot of enemies to encounter along the way.

    To actually unlock the achievement you need to go into your weapon upgrade tab and buy every attachement and every improvment for each one.

    The fastest but most boring way I've seen to farm coins (and xp) is this one (not my video):

    Basically replay the first mission, fast stealth up to the 2 first doors and then jump off the railing twice to restart the mission.

    Each section gave me 137 coins (as I continued playing the amount increased) per run. So 274 coins per run. A run takes about 1:45 if you walk. In 10 minutes I tested I got 1653 coins. Multiply that by 6 and you get 9918 an hour (theoretically). Better find a bunch of videos to watch on the side to make this more tolerable.

    Or better yet listen to a podcast like Face Jam !

    It should be noted that the more you level up the more coins you gain per run, but also the upgrade cost seems to periodically increase too.

    This achievement requires a lot of grinding. It requires you to spend coins and acquire every single improved weapon upgrade for every gun. It will probably be the last achievement you'll get in this game. I personally haven't unlocked this yet, but I will share my knowledge on farming coins.

    Go around each location and kill enemies. They drop around 1-5 coins. This is a very small amount of coins, but you can be doing your mastery level 10 weapon achievements too while doing this method. laugh

    Loot supply crates. There are three types of crates which give you coins. There are wooden crates everywhere across the map. Simply break them and you will find a few coins inside them, around 1-5 as well. There are yellow and white crates. Opening these crates will reward you with 50 total coins. There are also yellow and black crates. These reward you with 100 coins. Crates refill every 24 hours. smile

    Complete "Action Started" side quests. These quests ask you to do simple things in the map, such as planting a car bomb, or rescuing civilians. You will receive 200 coins upon completing these actions. headspin

    Go to Abby for your daily/weekly quests. You can usually get a few coins from completing daily missions and weekly missions. Some are really easy, such as double jumping 20 times. clap

    You can also help other people with their missions. Completing their missions also grants you with the rewards. This includes experience, coins and ability points. I recommend this method if you are farming both coins and ability points for the "More human than human" achievement. music

    There's nothing really you can do except for these methods. Happy achievement hunting everyone!
