Zombies! A zombie outbreak has sent your home island into a panic and you must fight with some new found friends to survive, and make your way off the island. You and your fellow zombie soldiers must destroy the zombie hordes to help save their fellow survives, and also secure a way off of the island. Whether or not any of you will ever make it off the island is unclear, but you'll certainly pwn many zombies in the process.

Story Mode:
In order to unlock Blackout and Survival mode, you will need to play through every level in story mode. The first achievement you will most likely get in story mode comes naturally; "The Law is Dead", but most the rest require some added effort on your part. During this time you will want to try and get $20,000 in a single chapter for "Money Grubber", complete the story alone for "Alone at the End", do all objectives in each chapter for "Hard Worker" (1 chapter) and "Exhausted" (all chapters), as well as level each character as much as possible for "Playing With Power". You may also want to rotate your characters regularly so you can use their pwnage ability at least 10 times each for "Got Pwnage?".

You will need to do the entire story mode, via New Game, with 3 other people to get "Epic Run".

Blackout Mode:
Blackout is a survival mode in pitch black outside of the area immediately surrounding you. It's not quite as bad as it sounds if you play with the AI, who still have no problem shooting zombies in the darkness. In this mode you will need to survive for at least 15 days, after which you can feel free to fail and get sent back to the menu.

Survival: Classic :
Another wave-based game mode, and this time around you must survive for a total of 30 days. At least you can see, and overall it's really not too difficult compared to either blackout or story mode.

Prequel: Day 56 (DLC):
Zombie Apocalypse 1 veterans should recognize the characters you play in this single level mode. It is more or less a wave based game mode consisting of about 8 waves, and you will see every enemy during the duration of the mode. This mode more or less acts as a segway from the first game, into the second one.

Pure Pwnage Mode (DLC):
This mode takes place on the same map as Prequel: Day 56 and pits Jeremy and his friend Doug against hordes of zombies. I personally feel Jeremy is the best character in the game, and Doug has the same skillset, so this mode is just pure fun. You can get two achievements here, one for lasting a total of 10minutes without failing ("Warm it Up") and the other for killing a total of 10,000 zombies, cumulatively, in this mode.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/2002/+SryZg==.jpgHard Worker - 10:gsicon:
Complete all Objectives listed for any chapter

Chapter 2 - New Sheriff in Town

See "Exhausted" for the objectives. I feel this is the easiest to get all of the objectives in without doing too much grinding, however you will need to max out all chapters eventually no matter what.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/2002/+usDQA==.jpgThe Law is Dead - 5:gsicon:
Kill your first Damned Zombie

Chapter 2 - New Sheriff in Town

Story related, unmissable. Play through the Chapter until the Sheriff boss zombie spawns and then kill him. Although any similar zombies count as Damned Zombies, he is the first you will come across when playing through the campaign from the start.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/2002/-0nouQ==.jpgMoney Grubber - 10:gsicon:
Collect $20,000 in a single chapter

Chapter 4 - Change in Itinerary

This achievement requires you to basically kill every enemy in a level, and hope they drop money when they die. So you really want a level with tons of zombies, such as Chapter 4. It IS entirely possible to get this on several other levels, but this one just seems the easiest for most people. Make sure you focus on picking up the money as you see it drop, otherwise it may disappear and you won't get it added to your counter (watch the starting and ending value of your money in the top right of the screen).

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/2002/-G78tw==.jpgSuper Savior - 20:gsicon:
Bring all possible survivors to Def Money's yacht in Story Mode

Mission 10 - We're on a Boat, Mother$#@#er!

After defeating the final boss, the credits will start to roll and you will notice some survivors running from the top part of the screen, over to Def Money's Yacht. Keep the zombies off of the (9) survivors until they all make it to the Yacht for the achievement to pop.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/2002/+MoK9Q==.jpgAlone at the End - 10:gsicon:
Complete Story Mode in single player

Story related, unmissable. Play through all 10 story mode levels and the achievement will pop once you finally get off the island.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/2002/-IgZnw==.jpgGot Pwnage? -10:gsicon:
Use each character's Pwnage ability 10 times

Pwnage abilities are activated by pressing the :ltbut: when their pwnage bar is filled up (filled by killing zombies). This achievement can be gained in any mode, and will most certainly come naturally while you max out every character.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/2002/-WjhDA==.jpgWeapons Expert - 10:gsicon:
Pick-up all five mash-up weapons with each character

Chapter 10 - We're on a Boat, Mother$#@#er!

Cumulatively, you must pickup and use each of the mash-up weapons, all of which can be found in Chapter 10. So ultimately, you only need to play through chapter 10 once as each character, although it also counts the mash-up weapons used during the rest of the campaign.

Nail gun
Flare gun
Grenade Launcher

Survive a fortnight in Blackout Mode

A fortnight is 15 days (in-game) spent killing waves of zombies in Blackout Mode, which is unlocked after completing Story Mode. As long as you put points into leveling up characters during Story Mode, you shouldn't have much trouble getting this achievement.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/2002/-Y4EJA==.jpgLong Term Survival Plan - 15:gsicon:
Survive 30 days in Survival: Classic

For this achievement, you must survive enough waves in Survival: Classic mode, which is unlocked after beating Story Mode, to reach day 30. Having leveled up a bit from Story Mode, this shouldn't be too difficult.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/2002/-9ARdg==.jpgPlaying with Power - 30:gsicon:
Get all 100 upgrades for your characters

This requires you to spend money to upgrade each character's abilities to the 5th and final tier. Each ability must be used and leveled up prior to being able to be purchased, allowing it to be further leveled up through use.

Speed - You fill up the bar as you run around with your character
Default Weapon - The default weapon is the character's :rs: attack. Just keep on shooting to fill up the bar.
Zombie Bait - Each character has a unique Zombie Bait which can be used by pressing :rtbut: as long as they have "ammo" for it. Use these whenever you can to fill up the bar.
Pwnage Ability - Once the tube next to your character's picture fills up, press :ltbut: to use their Pwnage ability, and fill up the experience bar.
Melee Weapon - Tap :bbut: to melee and level up this skill.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/2002/-fEYww==.jpgEpic Run - 30:gsicon:
Complete a Story Mode: New Game with 3 other players

For this you must find 3 other players, and play through an entire New Game from start to finish with them. Check the achievement trading thread ( here (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=341027)) for friends.

Complete All Chapter Objectives

See my guide here (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?p=5501253#post5501253) for tips on completing all of the chapter objectives.

Pure Pwnage DLC Pack

https://live.xbox.com/tiles/GZ/S2/1ICLiGJhbC8QFQUXXFJRTTc2L2FjaC8wL2QAAAAA5+fn+5mUAg ==.jpgLet's Finish This - 10:gsicon:
You revealed the end is the beginning when you completed Prequel: Day 56

Prequel: Day 56 is meant to bridge the gap between the first Zombie Apocalypse, and this title, by putting you back in the boots of the 4 original survivors as they battle waves of enemies in the hopes of putting an end to the Zombie Apocalypse. The enemies you will face in this relatively short game mode range from regular zombies, to all of the bosses, most of which are fought in groups of two at a time. Despite how difficult it may sound, the overall difficulty is rather limited.

Not bad... you survived Pure Pwnage for 10 minutes. Tell your friends.

Pure Pwnage mode takes place after the events of Never Die Alone, where Jeremy makes it back to find his friend Doug exactly where he left him prior to the events of the game. Doug has the same exact skillset as Jeremy, and the two must fight countless waves of enemies, while Pwning them in every way possible for maximum satisfaction. All you need to do for this achievement is to play the mode for 10 or more consecutive minutes without dying. Bouncing back and forth between Doug and Jeremy to use their Pwnage abilities, while the NPC charges their pwnage power with help make things go a bit smoother. The C4 teddy is very handy for the more dire situations as well. If you have trouble lasting 10 minutes, try standing so you have the gun range on one side of you to help eliminate zombies coming at you from that side while you focus on shooting zombies on the free side.

Definitely not a noob, you can hang with the boys from Pure Pwnage and pwn 10,000 zombies!

While playing through Pure Pwnage mode you need to kill 10,000 zombies using any means necessary. This is basically just a grinding achievement, and counts all kills you get over however many attempts at Pure Pwnage it takes you to get them (cumulative). Overall this is less intimidating than it may sound, as you should expect considering the volume of enemies you encounter in this mode especially.
