|Complete any three Gun Runners' Arsenal (GRA) three star (***) Challenges.|
Planning out the challenges may be the most difficult part of this DLC. You may want to sit down and take a look at which ones are still possible based on the amount of game you've played and the choices you made. With a little planning and a little stocking up of weapons, stims, and armor you'll be able to fly through these achievements.

Got this achievement last night, just go on the wiki for the achievement and do 3 of the 5 challenges. It was a tad annoying, but I completed it without any problems (other than finding low level weapons at lvl 50 -.-)

I personally went after the deathclaws at the quarry with a recharger rifle (took ages lol!), went around ncr camps for the officers and then to repconn h/q, helios 1 and nellis for sentry bots and mr gutsys. Took a while to get this one though, they are very tedious achievements!

ive already killed all them deathclaws, and wiped out all the robots, so im just going to have to try and do the deathclaws and cazadors at the thorn, then go around killing ncr, since ive already killed every named legion memeber. it's a shame that this dlc is rubbish for anyone that has got far in the game

Oh this DLC sounds very disappointing. I've literally completed everything else and have reached level 50 - what the hell is the point in my downloading this?? Old World Blues was such a great add-on. I want more areas to explore, and more story, not just a load of weapons and annoying challenges. :( I don't know whether to bother buying this one...

The achievement is actually not that hard to get. I just killed everyone at Cottonwood Cove and the Fort with a Cowboy Repeater, killed every named NCR Ranger and Officer with the Machete Gladius, and punched every sentry bot and Mr. Gutsy silly with Spiked Knuckles. Didn't even bother with the deathclaw one, yet!

there is a mr gutsy in nipton inside a house that respawns every 3 days that you can use to finsih off that challenge, he's in the kitchen and can't move much. theres also an unmarked location called the death claw promontory, has about 30 death claws, if you stand on the rock hills they will just walk around.

@16. Travel to the Thorn and speak with Red Lucy (think thats her name). If you've already completed her quest you may ask her to participate in fighting. Select Deathclasws and she'll pit you up against three. Stay crouched and as soon as the gate opens close it again. From there, take your 22 pistol and its fish in a barrell. The deathclaws will just run around confused. Remember: Its the kill with the 22 pistol that counts, you can always soften them up using a weapon of your choice.

After reading some of these comments, I was worried that I wouldn't be able to get this achievement, but it wasn't all that hard... assuming you haven't killed off everybody since beating the game.
Killing off the named NCR folk was fairly easy if you're still on good terms with them. Just go around to all the camps and find the guys in charge. If you stay hidden as you do it (I used a Gun Runners Chainsaw), nobody else notices and you don't become an enemy of the NCR. This makes it much easier to travel around to each location. The Old World Blues Sneaky Suit helps with the sneaking if you have it.
For the Mr. Gutsys, head over to the New Vegas There are three in there that respawn every couple of days. Also Nipton has one in a house (straight back and to the right) that respawn
|Comment #22 by Duff McMandar|
Saturday, October 08, 2011 @ 12:47:37 AM
(continuing from above)
And as for the Deathclaws, if you haven't completed the "The Thorn" missions, you can find 6 of them at the Junction 15 Railway Station. Just beat them up with a more powerful weapon (I used the Old World Blues LAER), then finish them off with a .22 or Recharger Rifle. If you don't have either, they can be found in Goodsprings, complements of Chet. There's even a silenced .22 sitting on the counter ready to be stolen.

Deathclaws: I went back to a level 20 savegame with high melee and killed 5 of them with a switchblade at 'Gypsum train yard' (using chems and stimpaks obviously). Setting difficulty to 'very easy' helps a lot.
Robots: Travel east of 'abandoned nuclear test site' there are about 8-10 Mr. Gutsys and Sentry bots. After that I went to Nellis AFB there are a few more floating around.
Killing 15 named high ranking NCRs took a while but I basically bought the Chainsaw from Gun Runners and went on a massive killing spree. The

Sunday, October 16, 2011 @ 01:19:37 PM
This is very easy to be honest:
(1 Challenge) "Armed for Bear"- I went to each "Alfa" "Bravo" "Charlie" "Etc" Stationed, and there is atleast 1 or more Commanders at each one. Also if you go to Bitter Springs, there is a Captain and a Lieutenant there.
(2 Challenge) "Deadthclaw Pro Hunter"- I went to "Gypsum Train Yard", and there is exactly 6 Blind Deathclaws there that counts towards the Challenge. Just use a silenced sniper to lower its health while you are in [Caution] mode, and finish it off with the Recharger Rifle.
(3 Challenge) "Man-Machine Interface"- I went to New Vegas Steel and there is about 3 Mr. Steels that counts toward the Challenge in there, Also they spawn ever 3 days. Rinse and Repeat.

Sunday, October 23, 2011 @ 12:02:46 AM
If you're having trouble with the Legion or NCR challenges and want to try the cazadore one, go to the Silver Peak Mine (on the road leading to Jacobstown).
If you do the robot challenge at New Vegas Steel and the deathclaw challenge at The Thorn, do the cazador one last (being sure to save after completing these two, naturally). Inside Silver Peak Mine, don't be afraid to allow the bugs to swarm you and blow up whatever weapon you choose (I used Long Fuse Dynamite) at your own feet.
Even if you get severely damaged and have to use a lot of health items, you only have to fulfill the challenge for the achievement to pop and then you can abandon the game.

Tuesday, October 25, 2011 @ 12:37:25 AM
Deathclaw challenge - You can start off by wounding them with heavier weapons. I used the Anti-Materiel Rifle to cripple legs, and finished them off with the silenced .22 pistol.
Man-Machine interface - I used a lead pipe. Kill all the robots near the crashed vertibird, and then you can find the remaining the robots at New Vegas Steel. Mr. Gutsy's respawn at New Vegas Steel every 2-3 in game days.
Crackerjack timing - I had the "MAD BOMBER" perk, and created tin grenades. There are several Cazadores near Tribal Village, the Wind Farm, and near the bootleggers hideout. Also try Cazadore Nest. Just throw several grenades among the groups of cazadores and it will kill 10 quickly.

Sunday, December 18, 2011 @ 04:43:59 AM
@ 45 Myself, update here, becarefull with the *** (3 star) challenges, especially Crackerjack Timing, given the explosives you need are rare and hard
to make unless you have the Tin Bomb Crafting Perk "Mad Bomber" you'll have
a rough time, be aware if you have just 1 bomb, it might not register the
kill, for whatever reason if you only have 1 bomb, don't use it, it will be
consumed after you throw it, and your character will be only using
their fists, and the game for whatever glitchy reason, will only register
the kill for whatever weapon is in your hands, being that your empty handed it will
register it as a fist kill. so have at minimum two bombs, swapping to another
bomb type works too, i.e. throw last delayed dynomite followed by quickly switching to one of your tin or tim

Wednesday, January 04, 2012 @ 09:23:08 PM
The three I found to be the easiest are "Against all Tyrants", "Man-Machine Interface" and "Armed for Bear". The Legion one may be tricky because there are so few named Legion members that are always around, but there are NINE named Legion members stationed between Cottonwood Cove and the Fort. Combine that with Lanius, who you have to encounter in practically every ending, that's a pretty straightforward 10. Just stock up on health items, good armor, and some regeneration items, and you can easily take the Fort John Rambo style.
|Comment #49 by Jankenomics|
Tuesday, January 10, 2012 @ 05:40:56 PM
Hands down, this was the best method to take in getting this achievement.
Man-Machine Interface - I used a Love and Hate. Set off all the alarms at REPCONN Headquarters and start swinging away. If you come up short, get the one in the house to the west side of Nipton and also the 3 that are in New Vegas Steel.
Crackerjack timing - The key as stated above by others is the "MAD BOMBER" perk, then just create tin grenades. Buy jars of pistol powder from Goodsprings general store and gun runners kiosk. For tin cans I went and got 10 from the Nipton general store. Then duct tape from Novac gas station (steal 7 rolls). This mission ties in well with "The Thorn" mission when you have to go after Cazador eggs. Get 4 or 5 at a time to come rape you and lop a tin nade at your feet.....too
|Comment #50 by Jankenomics|
Tuesday, January 10, 2012 @ 05:42:41 PM
Deathclaw challenge - THE EASIEST WAY TO DO THIS........"The Thorn" arena. Tell Red Lucy you are ready for a tougher challenge and she lets you fight deathclaws. Just close the door after it opens and shoot them from a far. Pull out you .22 pistol when they are down to 1 or 2 bars left and bing chievo.
A few hours tops for this is all it should take.
|Comment #51 by ArkantosDT|
Saturday, January 28, 2012 @ 06:08:14 AM
I found the Deathclaw Pro challenge much easier to do when you have a .22 pistol, an anti-material rifle or Bozar and you explore Quarry Junction. Try to take off as much health as possible with the initial shot from the AM rifle, then try to take it down to 1 bar with the Bozar. Then let it come close and shoot it in the head with the .22 pistol.
Luckily the game doesn't state that you have to take on down with a .22 pistol or the other items. Only that you kill them with it. Same can be applied for the cazadore challenge and the wasteland robot challenge. Easy peazy.

Monday, February 06, 2012 @ 01:06:13 PM
If you're like me and you've already killed pretty much every robot in the game including all the ones at the Crashed Vertibird, there's a good place you can go to do the Man-Machine Interface challenge.
At Nellis Air Force Base there are four Mister Gutsy robots floating around in various places between the array station and the hangars. If you kill them (make sure the Boomers don't see you do it or else they will become hostile) and fast travel to another place on the map, wait three days and they will respawn. Rinse and repeat and you will complete the challenge.
I believe you can also do this at New Vegas Steel, which also has Mister Gutsy robots that respawn after several days.

Had a really annoying glich on this one when trying to go for the deathclaws. I chose the hard option and stocked up on dynamite. The first three went down (eventually) without any problem. The fourth I took down was at the Thorn, but when I tried to fight another one he'd become immune to dynamite, as did each of the next dozen or so I enountered (including ones at the trainyard). Got there in the end, but wondered if anyone else had this problem?

This was actually pretty easy once you get your priorities straightened out. I was doing the quests for the NCR but I messed up with killing named Legion, so I just made multiple save files and went on an NCR killing spree until I got that particular challenge. The robots were easy, considering if you have That Gun, it makes a world of difference. And the worst one was to kill 5 Deathclaws with .22 pistols and recharger rifles. For that, I just went to the Thorn and fought 1 or 3 deathclaws at a time. I had a steady supply of Turbo and Stealthboys and just went around getting critical hits on the Deathclaws until I finished that achievement. All in all, it took me 1 hour to get all 3 of the challenges.
|Comment #69 by Isaacthegamer|
Thursday, October 18, 2012 @ 08:24:03 PM
I took your advice on Man-Machine Interface and Deathclaw Pro Hunter, which made them pretty easy. For the third challenge, I choose Armed For Bear, since I was in good reputation with NCR and there were a lot of named NCR still alive. While doing this, the game froze up at least six times. Two of those times, my save got corrupted. Even without those errors, things in the game were screwing up. I ended up having to start over several times. I decided to then save after ever kill and finally got it. It was a lot harder than it should have been because of all that! Ugh. But, now I've got the completion! Yay!

Kill Dead Sea in Nelson.
Kill Alexus in Techatticup Mine.
Kill Karl in Red Rock Canyon (he is in Papa Khan's tent).
Kill Alerio in the New Vegas Strip after he gives you the Mark of Caesar.
Kill Severus, Cursor Lucullus and the Aurelius of Phoenix in Cottonwood Cove (Lucullus only appears after you have been given the mark of Caesar).

Man-Machine Interface was another easy 3-star Challenge:
All you need is some decent armour (at least medium), an unarmed skill of at least 50, spiked knuckles, buffout, psycho, scotch, a stealth boy, and some stimpacks. If you want to really make things easy you can also bring ant nectar, rushing water, rebound, brahmin steak, and a few doses of jet.
Simply go the Crashed Vertibird, buff-up, and destroy. If you need any kills after that take a trip to New Vegas Steel and do the same thing.
