In Zombie Driver HD you play as a taxi driver, turned zombie steam rolling mercenary who is working to help the military clear the city streets of the undead. The story missions take you from the early moments of the outbreak, where you must help evacuate citizens throughout the city, to the late stages of the outbreak where the only option is to annihilate the zombies. All the while, the story behind the outbreak begins to unravel as you eventually discover all is not as it seems with your current employers. At least there's a city full of zombies that needs killing.
In order to unlock cars for Blood Race and Slaughter modes you need to play through the 31 missions in the campaign and complete some necessary secondary objectives to make the cars available to you. In general, it is best to try and finish all secondary objectives to help fill your wallet so you can pay off your upgrades as fight your way through the campaign. Just about every campaign achievement is associated to either a primary or secondary objective, upgrading one of your cars completely, or kill a certain number of enemies with a particular vehicle (tank or bulldozer), or weapon (the rail gun).
The Blood Race is divided up into a number of tournaments, made up of multiple events that vary in objective. The first event type is a race, which simply pits you against some opponents in a race to the finish. Next is Eliminator, which requires you to kill a number of opponents using the weapon pickups scattered throughout the map. Racing through the map will give you extra time, allowing you to kill more enemies in the long run. The final event type is Endurance, which requires you to speed through the checkpoints on the map to regain time as the clock inevitably ticks down to 0. Simply get through the checkpoints fast enough to keep the clock ticking for a set number of seconds/minutes for each medal. Your medals for each event in a tournament are averaged out to a total score which may or may not give you a medal depending on your scores. A bronze medal is necessary to unlock the next tournament.
Slaughter mode sends you through 7 different maps where you must kill to survive. The more you kill and more points you score, the farther you will progress into the waves of enemies. With each wave, comes more enemies, as well as an upgrade or two to any of your weapons or car parts. In this mode you need to reach a score in each map that will give you a gold medal, and you will need to find every upgrade as a wave reward in one game, as well as getting 150,000 points or more in a single game.

Dirty Work - 5
Defeat the first boss in Story mode
Mission: 3 - Meatball
Story related and unmissable. The big boss will have two machine gun ammo spawns near him, so just grab them as they spawn, park right in front of him and hold . He will occasionally throw things at you which can easily be avoided by either driving forward or backward.
Zombie Plants must die! - 10
Defeat the mutated zombie plant in Story mode
Mission: 20 - Operation Lawn Mower
Story related and unmissable. Hopefully by now you've done some pretty extensive upgrading of your weapons and your preferred car. The fight with the plant monster is pretty straight forward as long as you keep mobile and basically do strafe runs on him as he has multiple ranged attacks. Be sure to take out the spawn areas around him first, the two giant ball shaped spawn points and the one shipping containing to get all of the extra zombies out of the way. After that, use your most upgraded weapon on the boss; the flamethrower seemed the most effective (obviously), followed by the machine gun and rockets and finally the rail gun which you should probably just use to take out the spawn points and extra zombies. There are also two repair pickups in the immediate area if you need them. Once you erase his health bar, go grab a bomb from either outpost and plant it to finish off the plant boss.
Hot Rod - 5
Obtain the Sports car in Story Mode
Mission: 2 - Operation Neighbourhood
Story related and unmissable. Just play through the mission and you will be given the car parked in the driveway of the mechanic you saved; a brand new red Bugatti Veyron.
Very Important Person - 10
Unlock the mayor's White Limousine in Story Mode
Mission: 4 - Operation Lost Bird
In order to unlock this you must achieve the Secondary Objective, which requires you to go the marker on the map () and clear out all of the zombies until the marker disappears. I recommend you get the kids first, and then clear out the Mansion's parking lot to unlock the limo. The car is very helpful for rescuing more survivors (holds 6 people), so I recommend getting it the first time you do this mission, though it is very simple.
I Am The Law - 10
Unlock the Police Squad Car in Story Mode
Mission: 12 - Blue Shield
Another car that requires you to do a Secondary Objective. It's the same deal as the Limo, head to the secondary objective marker on the map and clear out the area of zombies until the marker disappears. You will definitely want to grab the 2 policemen before heading all the way up to the secondary objective and getting your new car.
Superbeast - 15
Unlock the super car in Story Mode
Mission: 24 - Operation Pigeon Hunt
Your last, and most epic car, can be unlocked by finishing the secondary objective in this mission, which requires you to clear out a military garage area of all hostiles. Depending on how you want to play this mission, you can either go get all of the survivors and then the supercar, or the supercar first and then the survivors since you only need 6 of the 8 pilots to survive.
Your 5 minutes - 15
Ensure that the TV van reaches the base with at least 50% of health
Mission: 5- Sitting Duck
Although not clearly labeled, this will also be the secondary objective of this mission. Once you reach the van you must protect it from zombies while the people inside repair the van to get it movie. You will probably want to have purchased machine guns for your car, but you can ram all of the zombies as well. Just keep on clearing out the area until the van decides to start moving, and keep an eye on the vans health % during the process so you know whether or not you'll get the achievement.
