To get this achievement, you must kill at least one Necromorph with each weapon. The weapons and locations are listed below. There are 10 default weapons from the game.

NOTE: DLC/Pre-Order/Special variants of the default weapons do count for the achievement. If you get a kill, but reload your checkpoint/save/die after that kill, you must get it again. Also, from my understanding, this does not have to be in one playthrough. Some are reporting you do, while others are getting it in their second playthrough. You should really not have an issue getting this in one run though.

Just as the first game, you must take the schematic to the store for the gun to become available to purchase.

Plasma Cutter
Chapter 1
Location: Found in operating room through normal story progression.

Javelin Gun
Chapter 2
Location: Store.

Line Gun
Chapter 2
Location: Store.

Pulse Rifle (Schematic)
Chapter 3
Location: Immediately after Chapter 2 where you fight upside down, and after the train crashes. Go around behind the train to the left, and it's on a shelf.

Ripper (Schematic)
Chapter 5
Location: At the bottom of area with the coffins, you need to solve the statis/gravity ring puzzle. If you are in front of the console, turn around and you should see it on a shelf to the right.

Detonator (Schematic)
Chapter 5
Location: After the elevator ride where the Slasher drops from above, exit and progress down to the executive office on the right. It will be in there.

Seeker Rifle (Schematic)
Chapter 6
Location: In the start of Chapter 6, follow your locator to the room with the balconies. Look to your right, and you should see it on the floor.

Flame Thrower (Schematic)
Chapter 6
Location: Toward the end of the school, after the fight in the gym, you will see a classroom with a window on your right. Go into this room, and it's in the back right corner.

Force Gun (Schematic)
Chapter 7
Location: After the Solar Array elevator ride (where you get the Elevator Action achievement) it will be in one of the lockers with the white light. Make sure you kill the Cysts first.

Contact Beam (Schematic)
Chapter 7
Location: After the Main Frame puzzle, follow your locator through normal progression. Kill all the Necromorphs, but do not follow to the right as the marker tells you. There is a node locked room off to the left. The schematic is in this room, so make sure you have a node.

If you leave negative feedback, please state why so I may adjust this as appropriate. Thanks.
