Melee Weapons step-by-step walkthrough *possible spoilers*

I’ve ordered things the earliest you can find them or where stores have multiple items for fewer unique store visits. SEVERAL items in safehouse I placed later on in the guide because they’re large meaning you’d have to zone out to carry each out and use it. Restart story, go through guide ignoring side missions. Just do main case files/zombrex & use every item in the guide except for RED ones. MARK THEM OFF as you go, trust me, and save anytime you pass a restroom. USE ONE SAVE FILE, if u save in different slots then the weapons used MAY only register on whichever file u save them on, possibly messing up this achievement. There's plenty of time to use all items in day 1.

If achieve doesn't pop progress the story following the survivor/psycho guide HERE since it gives you chronological order & time they appear & KILL ALL unrelated psychos & survivors, and by all I mean ALL, so the requisite quests pop up at their proper times to finish achievement. PURPLE items supposedly aren't required according to youtube video I found.

M.R. = Maintenance Room

Credit goes to Lovemetal423 for Item Locations guide HERE which I used to locate many of these.
Also found a youtube video with freeze frames of what appears to be each item, although in a much different order than mine

I don't think it's needed for the achievement, I didn't use it and still got the achievement. A survivor has it with him you need to kill him to obtain it.

I don't think the massager applies to melee weapons as its part of novelty weapons. I'll double check with an offline profile that hasn't used the massager to confirm.

Guide updated and cleaned up. Capitalized all melee items that need to be used so they're easier to distinguish from miscellaneous text. Also highlighted in Red those items that are psychopath or survivor quest-dependent. Just have to get those last 4 items into walkthrough and give specific locations in Southern Plaza to make those items easier to find and it will be complete. Has anyone ever seen an "outdoor garbage can"? It was on the item list in the sticky thread link.... I've never seen one.

I found a mailbox not far from the restaurant on the Platinum Strip (where Chad normally spawns). Just head towards the Arena while sticking to the left and you'll find it. I found it next to a newspaper box.

I just went through your list (and another one I had) and the achievement didn't pop for me. This was on a restarted story, the previous playthrough I made it very clear to use every item that only show up during the story and/or survivors. I did Novelty Weapons on this playthrough now, and that one popped, so I know there's simply a weapon I somehow missed since the novelty weapons carried over. Or does anyone know if you have to use any weapon in a specific way? I've noticed, for example, that the Utility Cart can only be carried or pushed, not used as a melee weapon at least what I've found.

This is really pissing me off...guess I'll have to replay the story once again, unless someone can point out something that I could've done obviously wrong.

Cincaid look for these three items they were missing in my original guide: peace art, money case, and shopping valuables. I'm 99% sure the case and valuables are only available during related survivor quests. Not sure about peace art working on it.

Also I had mentioned in the novelty guide I wrote that u may want to try each "type" of attack with each weapon. So for instance with the utility cart push it over a few zombies, then pick it up and swing it by tapping x if you can, hold LT and throw it, finally push and hold x if it gives a different attack animation. I'll be going through my guide tomorrow on my main profile and Sunday on an offline profile that's level 1 and verify that it works for sure. Did you use the checklist someone posted in a reply here and mark off each weapon as you went?

I can confirm that the video worked perfectly. Just make sure to save and/or load on the same slot.

Anyways, my last weapon was the big stick in Fortune City Hotel. I never even touched the military cases either, by the way.

You probably used military case on a different playthroughs n just didn't think about it. This achieve carries across playthroughs as long as its on the same save slot.

Hey, does anyone have a save right before they got their last weapon? I'm wondering if you can join co op and hit with the weapon and the other person can get the achievement.

Holy shit, I started a whole other playthrough just to get to the military case because that's what I thought I was missing. Halfway through the playthrough, I was at the part where you smashed the drills and randomly just picked up a drill motor just because it looked unfamiliar. Bingo, achievement unlocked. I would have been SOOOOO pissed if I made it all the way to 5-1 and still didn't get the achievement. I guess in your walkthrough when you say the drill motor is on the roof I grabbed the drill instead? I think that's what it was, so I checked off drill motor not knowing they are two different things. Heads up to anyone else so they don't get confused like I did.

Looks like a solid guide. After I win my last 1-2 TIR events I'm gonna use this guide. I'll provide critique if I have any afterwards.

I had somehow missed the garbage bag, even though I thought I was certain I had used it while going through the list. I no longer trust my memory, especially in lengthy task lists like this one, and was almost ready to start blaming the game's system of registering hits...

Blarg... Just spent all day on this and just finished the magicians sword, nothing. Went back and doubled everything mentioned and still nothing... All in one sitting always saved to slot A.

Any other easily missables? Have no desire to do it all again....

Oh one more thing... Like somebody else mentioned I have been unable to melee with the utility cart, I've only pushed and thrown it. Is there a way to melee with it?

No, I did the two ways you described and got it.

The ones that I went back and had to do because I missed them the first time were the Chef's Knife, Cooking Oil, and then I went back and did the Broom Handle and it popped.

fuck yeah, got this today after 4-5 hours spent for this achievement; i followed this guide, but like many others didnt get it from the first time...
why? because there more than 1 type of freakin garbage cans haha; although the name is the same, there are 2 or 3 different types and thats why i didnt get the achieve right away, because ive seen in the guide garbage can in more than 1 place, and me thought its a mistake
