Easy "Defeat 2,000 Taken." achievement
Complete Story mode after finding all the manuscript pages. Unlock all arcade levels. Play the Nightmare levels of the Arcade. Because there are no waves, enemies will continue to spawn. Another option is to -play the final act of Story mode. Progress to the final part at the power station where you have to point the flashlight into four groups of towers. There is a safe location and ammunition next to a small cabin. Remain in that area and allow the enemies to approach you. If you do not destroy the towers, the enemies will continue spawning. By collecting all the manuscript pages, you will have access to the assault rifle which can be found inside a metal box to the left of where both Bosses spawn after leaving the power station.
