I got this achievement in the level after Pollis, where I got the last weapon needed: Kalash 2012. To ensure you get this early, always take a gun you never used from the ground and use it at least once to kill something. You can find the Helsing (rare to find) at the Front Line level on some sandbags (after you climb up from an abandoned area) and you can find a Tihar in many levels. If you use a weapon at least once you are good to get this achievement, but you will also need to buy some weapons.
Note: If you are using another weapon for the other kill achievements, you can leave it on the floor to kill something with a different weapon then get your important weapon back.

Here is a list of the weapons required with locations for the standard versions:

Weaponsmith Achievement Weapons List

Kit Items
1) Grenade:
Can be looted from almost any dead human enemy or bought in most shops for 15 Military-Grade rounds.

2) Sticky grenade:
* Can be found in weapon caches or bought in most shops for 20 Military-Grade Rounds.
* Not as common in the metro as their nailless counterpart, the regular grenade.

3) Knife
The standard Knife is an unobtainable weapon in Metro 2033, because Artyom uses his own Knife.

4) Throwing Knives
Throwing Knives can be bought in every Metro Station-City that has a Weapons Merchant but because of their reusability that should never be necessary; they can be often found lying around in or around any place where hostile humans are present.

Sidearms

1) Revolver - where to find the standard version:
* Hunter Mission - Free from the red box on the wall when the alarm activates.
* Everywhere else - Found near dead bodies and in holsters of killed enemies.

Pneumatic Weapons

1) Tihar - where to find the standard version (cannot be bought):
1. Can be found in the level Lost Tunnels, when walking with Bourbon through the tunnels, there is a path going left and there you find two Lurkers eating on a body, near the body, a Tihar can be found.
2. Can be found in the level Dead City 1, in the building with the broken elavator. Fall down the elavator into the room. You'll find a stalker with an unscoped Tihar laying next to him.
3. Can be found in the level Dead City 2, in a dumpster to your right, after meeting up with Bourbon (a use-symbol appears when you look at the lid of the dumpster.).
4. Can be found in a broken railcart in the mission Frontline, and in many other places, usually sticking out.

2) Helsing - where to find the standard version (cannot be bought):
* First one can be found at the near the end of Dead City part 1. Go past the body the demon was feeding on - preferably after dealing with the beast - and head down the stairs and over the wall on the right, and towards a body. Now turn around and walk up the iron bar which comes up to the second level near the bus. Turn around again and jump onto the ledge, there will be a room with a body in it, near it is a Hellsing and several Arrows. Be careful - this area, especially the entrance, is highly radioactive, and you will lose health rapidly and die if you get disorientated in here. It's recommended to pick this one, as it will help greatly with stealth in Dry and commie part of Frontline.
* Another can be found in a room guarded by Nazi soldiers in Frontline, right in front of you as you come up the ladder from the canals after going through the secret passage.
* One in Defense level, in the secret cache with two safes(where you get a Moral Point), near a body.
* In Black Station inside the train after crossing the first bridge and going down the stairs. It is on the seat at one end with a smattering of ammunition, and at the other end is a target with a couple more arrows.

Electric Weaponry
1) Volt driver (new weapon from the DLC) - where to find:
* Lost Tunnels – appears on the bag with the ammunition.
* Armory – appears on the bed with the heavy automatic shotgun.
* Sparta Base – appears on a the pile of boxes to the left of the weapon rack.

Shotguns

1) Duplet (double-barreled shotgun) - where to find:
* Can be found for free in Chase. It's automatically given to the player by Eugine after the quick-time event.
* Other than that it can be found almost everywhere on dead bodies or in stashes even late in the game.

2) Automatic Shotgun (Uboyneg) - where to find:
1. Can be picked up free, from most dead human enemies.
2. Shops - 120 MGR.
3. You can also salvage one from Bourbon's back pack when he leaves it in the Dry (Level) Station's air vent along with extra ammo for it.

3) Heavy Auto Shotgun (new weapon from the DLC) - where to find:
* The first one appears in Armory. After Artyom is forced to flee the Communist Secret Police, and is saved by Andrew the Smith, you will find the weapon, along with a few packs of shotgun shells, waiting for you on the bed, a gift from the smith.
* The second one will appear in Sparta, with the other weapons obtained by Vladimir. If you want it, grab it. Otherwise, enjoy the free shotgun shells.

Assault Rifles & SMGs
1) Kalash - where to find the simple version:
* Can be bought in Armory.
* Can be found for free, first time in Dry. After Bourbon gets captured , turn around 180 degrees and at the end of the tunnel you'll find your promised AK.
2) Kalash 2012 - where to find it:
* You can get it free in Pollis (for sale)
* Available for free at Sparta.
* A number are found on the way to and in D6.
o 2 Are found during "Cave", both near the bodies of tunnel/D6 workers.
o Found in a box inside a small train before the computer control room.
o Found in the lobby of the computer control room by some crates.
o Found inside the computer control room on a shelving unit on the right-hand side of the room.
o Found in a box on a small train before and after the Ameboa pores.
o Found in Biomass on a shelving unit along with a VSV near the ladder (Needs screen-shot conformation)
o Found in ammo box when picking up the 'gift'.

3) VSV - where to find the standard version:
1. Shops - 230 MGR.
2. Ulman will give you one when arriving at Black Station.
3. Another can be found on top of a train car in the Black Station
4. One is used by a Nazi in the final area you fight them in black station.
5. Found in the level Biomass, in D6. Not at the first set of shelves - as you move round towards the ladder to the control room check behind the pillars for the second set of shelves.

4) Bastard - where to find the standard version:
1. Exhibition - Free from Armory.
2. Humans - Free.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Variations and Turret guns do not count towards this achievement. So if you killed something with, say, a standard revolver, you do not need to use a revolver with a scope to get the achievement.

GsA UnReaLiZethe kalash 2012, is that the AK47 with a scope?
Posted by GsA UnReaLiZe on 05 Jan 11 at 20:06
Vinicius MentiThis is the Kalash 2012 weapon, so no it is not a AK47 with a scope: http://metro2033.wikia.com/wiki/Kalash_2012

And it only exists in-game, :)

MastaGusIf you'd add the first location where you can find all the weapons this solution would be AAA+!
Posted by MastaGus on 19 Jan 11 at 08:33
Vinicius Menti@MastaGus As requested, gathered all the information to improve the guide. Also changed the name for the automatic shotgun, as "heavy shotgun" was not the accurate name.

DixxxxxonDo you know if this has to be all in one play through?
Posted by Dixxxxxon on 14 Mar 11 at 22:42
Vinicius MentiFrom what I could find in xbox360achievements,org, it was confirmed that you need to this in a single playthrough. Annoying, I know, but I recommend playing in ranger mode as it makes the game much more interesting and fun - even if you glitch those difficulty achievements (btw, i had to play it many times to get 100% hehe).

Dropkick Hope86when does this pop? i have used everything except a mounted flame thrower.
i used the kalash 2012 on the very first level (prologue) does that count or not?
Posted by Dropkick Hope86 on 28 Mar 11 at 22:17
Vinicius Menti@dropkick Hope86: the prologue does NOT count. The achievement pops after you get your first kill with your last weapon. You do not need the flamethrower but use it anyways.

Crimson DrifterSo I missed taking the Volt and Auto both times. So after I finish this game (at Outpost before I realized I screwed up) could I just load up my Armory save grab shotty, kill through sparta, grab volt, I should get the achievement as long as ive used everything else correct? and all my weapons I used prior will still have counted up to Armory correct?
Posted by Crimson Drifter on 01 Jun 11 at 08:50
Vinicius MentiAll your progress is saved for every chapter, including your gear, so I assume the game will consider the guns you used before. I have not tested that, but this reasoning makes sense.
Posted by Vinicius Menti on 01 Jun 11 at 13:29
Crimson DrifterThats what I thought, I'll give it a shot next time as its all I need to do.
Posted by Crimson Drifter on 01 Jun 11 at 20:23
Crimson DrifterWell it worked, made the run from Armory to Sparta, got the achievement at the part you needed to use the flamethrower after using the heavy shotty and the ak 2012, and with that 100% complete :)
Posted by Crimson Drifter on 02 Jun 11 at 08:39
Cellar AtticFor me, and probably for most people, the Kalash 2012 was the last weapon I needed. I just wanted to add that the earliest you can get this weapon is actually at the merchant in Polis. Also, you can start up from a previous chapter and play through until you've used all of the weapons. So, if you've already beat the game but missed this achievement somehow you can start on Lost Tunnels (to get the Volt Driver) and be done by Alley, or start on Armory (where you have to choose between the Volt Driver and Heavy Shotgun) and play until Driving to Sparta.
Posted by Cellar Attic on 11 Jul 11 at 00:59
Vinicius Menti@Cellar Attic Checked your information in the Metro 2033 wikia, and yes they are saying you can find that gun there, so I've updated the guide.

XI AlphaMale IXWhen does this unlock? I know I've gotten kills with every weapon. :/
Posted by XI AlphaMale IX on 01 Jan 14 at 05:59
XI AlphaMale IXOkay so I must have missed a knife kill (I thought I had one - maybe an NPC finished off the enemy). Since this is my next to last achievement, it definitely has to be done in one playthrough, i.e. no skipping levels from wherever you start.

Vinicius MentiAs you can see at the end of the guide:

Additional Notes: You must get this achievement in one playthrough. You cannot just reload chapters to get it. Also, the Prologue kills do not count.

Good luck! I do not even own the game anymore, but I hope this guide helps you!

Warboy925So I beat the game, and I restarted from Armory, grabbed the Tihar, used it for the (Pneumatic Weapons kills), and while killing all enemies in Frontline (for the cheevo), found and used both the auto shotty and the Helsing, my question is, does all the weapon kills I have PRIOR to Armory count? (Knife, Bastard, Volt, Kalash, and the Duplet)
Posted by Warboy925 on 10 Apr 16 at 20:42
Warboy925Or does it mean that form the armory on is a new playthrough?
Posted by Warboy925 on 10 Apr 16 at 20:44
Vinicius MentiHi. I don't even own an xbox 360 anymore or even visit trueachievements, but I got an email about your comments and I don't mind helping you. From what I remember, kills you got before that point in the game count, as they are saved along with the state you were when you began the chapter.

Good luck!

Warboy925Oh ok thanks for popping back in, lol
