Easiest Way to Get Gun Nut?

#1 Posted by CraigAA1028 (546 posts) -

I'm currently on my third playthrough just trying to get the final two achievements I'm missing, Gun Nut and Doctorate. For Doctorate, I'm just following a guide so that's not a problem. To me, the hardest achievement to get is Gun Nut. 
  
I decided the gun I wanted to fully upgrade was the pistol, since it's probably the first gun you get. I have followed the wiki for Deus Ex, found every damage, rate of fire, and ammo capacity upgrade I can find and found the three specific mods for the pistol (laser sight, armor piercing, and silencer). There are literally no more mods for me to find, at least according to the wiki. Soooo what am I missing? Is there an easier gun to fully upgrade if I have to do yet another playthrough just for it? I don't have any pre-order weapons, which apparently are the fastest to upgrade. Any suggestions?

The tranq. rifle only requires three reload mods and a special aiming assist mod.

I used the tranq. rifle. I unlocked it pretty quick. I didn't have all of the stats all the way up, but I did have one of each type it could support. The tranq rifle is easy since it doesn't support many upgrades, just the aiming assist one and some reload speed upgrades I think.

i'm actually not sure how i got it, but i did put everything that could go on the tranq on that and near everything else on the pistol.  got it before the fight after meeting the real eliza.

I know of the easy way to get it as described above but I really didn't want to waste it on something I didn't want to use.  I'm doing the combat rifle and will be quite annoyed if I can't find enough reload upgrades ect ect.  To me, that is a broken feature if you can't ugprade something all the way.

You can upgrade any gun you want fully, with plenty mods left over for more guns. I had 3 fully upgraded guns by the end.

He just asked for the easiest and fasted way to do it, hence people said Tranq gun.
