Hence why it was still listed as something to be confirmed, wasn't bolded and had a question mark by it. Thanks for the input, no thanks on the attitude.

I'm using the analog settings when I get in a car and splattering zombies, but the counter in my achievement tracker is not going up. Am I doing something wrong?

If your going for the 150 kills with the analog stick you need to use the analog stick in close combat. Driving and running over zombies with the settings on analog doesn't count toward that achievement .

I'm going to have to confirm that this is correct. My Swing them sticks achievement progress is not moving at all when using analog while driving.

I tried it because it was listed on the achievement guide, but had no luck.

Just kill something with a regular melee weapon if this happens and then proceed to kill with vehicle or gun.

I personally unlocked Swing Them Sticks by running over a zombie, so I know it works. I wasn't grinding kills while driving or anything, I just was slowly working on it while playing the game with that mode enabled and it unlocked on a vehicle kill while I was heading to the gas station.

Yep, great guide Pants. I know a lot of it has helped me plan some of my play already. I had actually tried grinding earlier and ran into the same issue BLOMBOMB. As I discovered as long as I made at least one Analog kill with a melee weapon before going off on a shooting or driving rampage then the kills counted fine, but just loading the game, switching to Analog and going for a drive/shooting spree would result in no increase.

Fiiiiinally reached level 50!! You need 3 million XP which for me was a good thing (meant more gameplay) but sadly, for you achievement hunters, it took me just under 60 hours of regular gameplay with no XP farming or glitches to unlock. It took about 3 full playthoughs while doing nearly everything.

I'm sure that in co-op, starting with high leveled friends, this would be attained much faster. But without the net, I had to do it this way

Not sure if it's been mentioned before. But for the rootin' tootin' lootin' achievement.
Orange weapons that you loot from dead zombies also count. Just witnessed my mate loot a set of orange brass knuckles and it said he got 2 out of 5. Lucky bastard is only on level 12 too

For some reason all my stats are only tracked under Sam B.
I'm also
Playing with Xian Mei or Purna, it doesn't give her any milage on stats but everything goes to Sam B.

I have an idea why..

I started with Purna, 30 minutes later I joined a friend with a new file Sam B (recommended) and played the game, later on the day I quit out but did not choose the option to continue on a previous savepoint but backed out to the menu instead.

Ever since then, it's like this.

Since Walkers always take at least a bar of health from me, I'd like to add that getting burned by a car (two of them on the street in front of the church) hurts just half a bar if you jump back immediately. Made the guesstimation of figuring out whether or not that next snack bar or drink would heal me fully unneccesary. Guaranteed way to get Everybody Lies.

I can confirm that running over zombies while having analog on does count. I just unlocked it this morning like that.

Dang, I glitched or something. Didn't get act 2, but almost done with act three. I think because as soon as i finished it, somebody joined my game and it messed it up.

If you're having trouble finding a grenade for Catch! just load up chapter 18; about half the time there are 3 grenades with each ammo stockpile (first is right in front of you when you spawn, and there are at least 2 others behind you for a total of 9 grenades). If there are no grenades just quit out and start again.

Once you have the grenades you can either continue the chapter until the infected start spawning, or save that character and load up chapter 1 for a nice easy kill.

I couldn't find the area mentioned above. I found my spot in the resort along the beach. After you rescue the guy in the truck who opens your first bench, continue along the beach until you come across an island connected by a bridge to your right. There will be 11 or 12 zombies here.

I guess Swing Them Sticks is glitched for me, because I had been playing on a new character and played from the start with analog, and I checked my kill count before and after driving, and was at 62 still. Checked it a couple more times but it still wasn't upping my count. Something fishy is going on with it for me I guess. Sorry to make assumptions it wasn't working though guys, it's only me!

I wouldnt be surprised if the DLC counted towards the 72 locations. They used to say "1000 attainable off the disc" but that went out the window with online passes. This seems very much the same thing.

I found a really good spot for "Light my fire" Set 10 zombies on fire simultaneously.

Place - Moresby
Items - Zombie Bait x3 and Molotov
Fast Travel to the Abandoned House
Exit front door of House
Head to your immediate right and jump over the wall, head east and you should see a pack of 10-14 zombies.
Spam the bait in the center of the zombies, toss a molotov and viola.

Right 4 Life 30
Complete act I with 4 different characters.

I unlocked it with your method Pants, thanks but since I was going through this entire fiasco from scratch four times (yeah I've played all the Act I Chapters 4x) I wrote this, in case anyone is struggling what quest to do & which not:

Approx. Time: 2-3h (without doing any sidequests or exploring)
Info: You can ignore all the other quests for this achievement!

Mission-Mini-Guide:

- Prologue (obviously)

Act I:
Chapter I (Welcome to Banoi):

- PASSPORT TO LIFE (400XP)

- EXODUS (600XP), you can help HARIS on your way to the Lifeguard Tower for a little extra 500 XP.

Chapter II (Busy Surviving):


- TO KILL TIME , this includes the following four sidequests:

- ON THE AIR (1000XP), talk to Dominic (close to Sinamoi).

- LAZARUS RISING (300XP), you can collect the car parts on your way up to the LIGHTHOUSE GAS STATION.
Now you really don't need to do this sidequest but it's pretty easy and you'll get car, all in all to fasten things up.

- ASHES TO ASHES (900XP), talk to Mike (outside).

- A RAY OF HOPE (1200XP)

- A PIECE OF CAKE (1500XP), search the bars near HOTEL. Waypoint will show up if you near.

- SEEK 'N' LOOT (1800XP), you need to do WATERDANCE (Sidequest) in order to get into the building with the packs of juice.

Chapter III (Wheels of Steel):

- BORN TO BE WILD (2100XP), simple, just follow the mission objectives.

Chapter IV (Of Broken Birds):

- BLACK HAWK DOWN (2400XP)

- MISERY WAGON (2700XP)

- ONLY THE STRONG SURVIVE (3400XP)

- ON THE ROAD (No XP)

End of Act I

Can't touch this 20
Use a hammer to kill a series of 15 zombies without taking damage.

Here is a Video Done by Stallion83 Music MC Hammer "U Can't Touch This





Find a hammer or have a friend give you his in a coop game. Make sure to upgrade it to max and have it fully repaired before attempting the above. You cannot take any damage during the 15 kills.

Kick is your best friend (LB) use it to keep enemies off of you and to weaken them. Be sure the final blow comes from dropping the hammer down.

That is pretty ugly! Let's hope the Bloodbath DLC won't be too expensive.
