Complete the entire game only using melee weapons. You can use guns but only if you use them to melee. If you shoot a gun you ruin your chances to get this achievement. I suggest doing the complete game without shooting a gun while also going for
Condemned: Criminal OriginsMelee Mayhem AwardThe Melee Mayhem Award achievement in Condemned: Criminal Origins worth 52 pointsYou found every type of melee weapon and fire-arm

then go through again shooting guns to get
Condemned: Criminal OriginsFire-Arm Freedom AwardThe Fire-Arm Freedom Award achievement in Condemned: Criminal Origins worth 31 pointsYou found every available fire-arm

PlayerTwo811It unlocked for me at the end of Chapter 9...I was able to go through chapter 10 and use guns to make the last chapter easier. You already got the achievement, so what's the point in continuing to use melee only? Right?

L1B3RTYorD34THI can confirm that the taser CAN BE be used and the achievement will still unlock following chapter nine.

KanjiKokaEveryone says you can use the taser, duh...but what if the taser KILLS a guy?

KanjiKokaEasy Kanji, let me answer your own question. You can use the taser and if it KILLS a guy, then that is quite alright. The achievement will still pop. And I dropped many o' crawlers with that bad boy.

RabidDolphin87I made sure to use only melee weapons from the start of the game and it unlocked for me after I beat chapter 9.

Sipuli91Anyone else who had this ublock in ch 9 aleady completed another chapter twice using melee only? Perhaps that messes it up. I completed the first chapter twice using melee only so maybe the game messed up and counted it as all chapters done? Not complaining, though. It sure is nice to be able to use the rifles in ch 10!
