great guide. the colectables are cumulative, and if you know where some are and you join a friend that does not have them you can pick them up again.

If you take it reload the checkpoint and it will be there again.
You see: You will get Medipacks for free and can spare/save your Money.

I dont think this will be patched soon.

I must quote myself
I forgotten to say that you will loose all Medipacks after you were rescued

Another method is to join a friend at the very beginning of a new game with your high level character. The Level 1 zombies will easily die in a single shot.
I tried this but the problem with this achievement is, it has to be an INFECTED (the ones screaming & rushing @ you) not the WALKERS (usual slower zombies) and they're rather rare in the beginning (only three of them on the beach). But your second method is quite doable.

Well I think they look the same as the WALKERS but you'll notice the difference as soon as you run away from them haha. They run straight @ you screaming from the distance.

We just tried this in a group of three. I played as Xian and finished all of the main story quests and invited three level one's into my party and we wrapped up the act. None of us, not even myself, got credit towards finishing the act. It might have been glitched since I didn't even get it, or maybe I was being punished for trying! :P

There is a guy behind some bars that you can trade with near the police station in the city of moresby. He sells grenades and large medkits. Got both of my achievements that way.

Awesome guide so far, Thanks.

Just a quick suggestion. For the complete "X" Act achievements, would it be possible to include which chapters are to be completed for each act? IE: act 1 - complete chapters I, II, III, IV. Etc.

I've just completed my first playthrough and I have yet to find 1 orange weapon!!
I'm playing with Purna and had the Jackpot perk at level 3 as soon as possible.

This is some serious BS.

For the Light my Fire achievement there's a pool behind the hotel with a floating bed near a semicircular area. Aggro a whole bunch of zombies in the pool. Make sure you have at least 10 following you and move towards the aforementioned bed. Hop on the floating bed thing (there might be a better name for it but I assume everyone should know what a floating bed is) and then up onto the ground/pool side. If you have a meat-bait you can chuck it into the semicircle for safety but the zombies should be trying to grab at you from the pool. Chuck a Molotov and the achievement should be yours.

Swing Them Sticks Tip

Just thought a little tidbit you could put in for the achievement 'Swing Them Sticks'.

I got this achievement tonight while I was driving a vehicle. While I had been using analog to attack to get this achievement, it actually popped when I was running over some zombies while driving between the Lighthouse and the Lifeguard station. I had my friend check, and he was at about 150 on 'Swing Them Sticks', and he had NEVER used analog controls for fighting yet -- only driven over.

So people who don't want to use analog controls for fighting can just keep driving back and forth and killing zombies that way, and they should get this achievement.

If for whatever reason you can't find a large medkit for everyone lies achievement. Start a new game with someone you've completed the game with. Load chapter 18, they start you off with a large medkit.

Also there is about 8 medium medkits laying around. 9 medkits per load toward the Gesundheit achievement.

For the "One is all I need" achievement, I got it while the mechanic is pimping out the bus (end of act 1) as a stream of infected rush you at a rate of around two at a time. There's also an upgrade bench inside if you want to get a good weapon, I used the shock machete.

Thanks for anyone who has provided tips so far!

One thing I'd like to check, is has anyone used all four characters to finish all the main story quests of Act 1 and received the achievement? I know people are reporting they aren't getting credit for the first one they've done in the tracker, but maybe just the tracker is broken and the achievement will still unlock.

Edit: Seems I'm right. This guy got it by doing all four in one sitting. I don't think that is a requirement (the one sitting part), but it looks as if the tracker is just broken.

I found for everyone lies that missing just one block of health didn't have the achievement unlock, so I waited till I was missing 1.5 blocks, ate a piece of fruit then took the kit, so as long as you're missing less than one block it should work everytime

I did all 4 of mine the long way. It definitely unlocks. Don't have the chance to try it out the quick way in co-op

For the analog kill (150) found easy method. Instead of using your weapons use a gun. They count since your on analog control and is very easy to use. Just shoot everything and got my 150.

Instead of telling us that it's not "an estimated" 30-40h to 1000 why don't you let us know HOW LONG is it then??? I'm curious...

Just another little tip for "Swing Them Sticks" (Analog). If using a vehicle or gun, watch your count, sometimes it doesn't register if using either of those to perform kills while in Analog mode. Just kill something with a regular melee weapon if this happens and then proceed to kill with vehicle or gun.
