You may be able to make it but Id switch to the SUV. I finished about 6 hours early. You can make that 3k kills up in those 6 hours.

Help would be much appreciated!

I'm currently at Day 3, 3AM, counting exactly 40,200 zombies killed. Following the guideline posted earlier, I'm about 3k kills behind. I'm using the SUV for this run. Think I'll still be able to make it?

*edit* Eh, forget it. I'm now at 52,660 zombies at Day 3, 4:44PM. That's 5k behind the posted guideline. Might as well start over, and include the case files to hit Overtime to add another 24 hours, just to be sure.

People said it before, and I'll just repeat it. This achievement is an unnecessary waste of time.

I started using the SUV but then ended up losing even more kills. So i kept with it on the chainsaw bike, even spawned the snipers, and managed to get it at 9:45am

I'd say if your having problems doing it with the suv try using the bike. I dont like using the SUV because its slow and you seem to need a generic route to optimise your kills. With the bike you just have to do some laps around an area and move onto the next one. I also stayed outside most of the time, not reloading the area by going into a casino or loading a save.

I'd say it was more enjoyable and less boring using the chainsaw bike method than driving the suv around, but that might just be me. I thought this achievement was gonna be a bitch but that's only because i was lazy around the beginging and didnt bother getting kills with the SUV before Leon spawned. Ended up actually being fun...

Should I be worried
It's 11:55pm Day 2

And I'm at 36018

I'm behind I think aprox 2k in kills.

Average 1000kills per in game hour. Having trouble increasing.

Am I on a set course to fail?

The number of zombies spawning increases throughout the campaign, specially at night. So your numbers should go up. Just stick with it, you should be alright at 1k an hour

I was wondering. I didn't get it the last attempt, so now I'm going to try again, and include doing the case files and giving Katey her medicine. So...

Spoiler! (click here to reveal)


does Overtime start with the time you waited, or does it always start with just as much time, no matter howlong you waited?

Keep at the same route, save frequently and maintain a high level of speed at all times, as zombies usually don't get killed on impact if you're going slow.

i try but usually end up crashing into a wall or post and loose all speed, i head straight for the arena and clean up there then few laps round the middle area where Leon spawns and then up to the silver strip for a lap then save.

Is it worth trying with the save i have or start over?

I say give it a few more tries using different methods and if that doesn't work out, then start a new game and try again. And you have 70,000 kills with 1 hour and 40 minutes left and I'm presuming it's game time not real time. I think you have a shot at this, as I can easily get around 1300 kills per hour plus the extra 40 minutes trying to get the other 700 kills.

Give it patience, it will come.

how do you manage to get so many kills an hour i can only get the 1000 an hour if im lucky. Yes the 1 hour 40 is game time i started again from my 70000 kills but am now worse off than ever, im ending up 200-300 short this time

Edit: never mind got it now dunno how i managed it but i managed 72,088 soooo glad i didnt have to start that one again

Just in case anyone's interested in more feedback, I got it done with 4 in-game hours left. I made one pass with the SUV through the whole outside area, hitting the big groups. When I made it back to where the SUV was, I entered the Casino nearby and entered the Strip again to spawn more zombies. Its not going to work for everyone, I'm sure, but it worked for me.

Zombie Genocide Master

72k with 9 hours to spare was easily accomplished by following the tips in the OP, I saved around every 20-25k in the Yucatan Casino. Here are a few additional tips.

The crowds in the later days are fat with zombies waiting to get run over so you should be able to make up some ground if you fell behind

The zombies come out at night in thicker packs so try to stay out there and minimize your running for saves if you can help it

Zombies die when you are using reverse too so always aim for crowds even when backing up (real helpful around the left and right sides of the arena steps)

I hope this helps and good luck

i waited a long time to attempt this achievement because it seemed annoying, but i just got it very easily. had hours and hours left to spare in 72 hour mode.

the key is to establish a good route where you spend most of your time in the highly populated areas (near the arena, in the center by the save point, and further on by the concert stage). i would also recommend that people not waste a lot of time by saving and reloading from the save point in the center... use it to save your game every 5,000 or so zombies, but don't reload there. instead, reload the zombies by entering and exiting yucatan briefly. this will end up spawning leon and the snipers eventually, but they take very little time to dispose of and the extra zombies you get this way will keep you on track to getting 1,000 zombies+ per in-game hour.

if you use an ideal route from the very beginning and follow these directions, you should end up finished with lots of time to spare.

What did everyone do when Leon spawned? There aren't enough zombies in the area where he spawns, so I'm afraid I'll miss out on a decent amount of kills...

10pm day 1 and I'm at 15k so all looks good. Thanks for the info.

Well ... Edit... I'm trending a little behind and getting nervous. I have a question since I've yet to do coop. Do both players kills count towards the same count? I.e. Let's say I'm 2k behind with two hours to go. Can somebody join grab the bike and help out?

Got this a while back, and thought I'd share my experience. I was having a real hard time getting 1k an hour with the SUV. I watched a dozen or so YouTube vids, read tips on the forums here, and still I failed to reach it.

This is the last achievement I needed. (and the 5k and 53k one at that point) I was level 50, so I had everything needed.

First try I ignored the storyline. Rushed to the driving mag, got on the bike near arena, into the SUV and started my runs. I was 2k ahead on 7 pm the first day, probably due to not wasting too much time and getting a decent headstart. Then I slowly started falling more and more behind on the 1k/hour schedule. When I was about to reach 22k zombies killed I was already 2k behind schedule, so I somehow got from 2k ahead to 2k behind within 10k kills. I decided not to risk it and go for the safe route: Play the storyline.

So I restarted, and went to do the story. Everytime there was some spare time I would go out and kill zombies in my usal laps, getting around 900 zombies/hour. I kept driving up until I was called to do some case, stretching my Zombie killing time as much as I could. I was able to keep a pretty steady pace, most cases didn't even cost me too much time to do.

I ignored all survivors and psycho's except 1: I killed Leon to get access to the chainsaw bike to try if that would allow me to kill faster. Having the bike with 1 bike magazine that I got during the completion of case 3 did allow me to net just over 1k / hour of zombies killed when I tried. However, shortly after I started that method the Snipers spawned. For some reason they are unable to hit me when I just walk around, but when driving a bike at ludicrous speed they will just plain snipe you off. Retarted game. So I gave up on the bike again and continued in my trusted SUV for the rest of the game.

When the military came and the extra unlocked time came into play I was on something like 61k kills. Not too far behind on schedule considering the amount of extra time I unlocked this way.

I kept doing cases to eventually unlock overtime should it be needed, but I managed to get the 72k zombies before I went to roof for the "final" battle at around 9:15 PM.

I had plenty of time to get that case done, complete the facts and unlock and complete overtime for the "S" ending after getting the 72k killed achievement.

For everyone that is not getting the 1k / hour or would like a safe way to get the achievement: Just do the storyline and kill zombies in between. It should give you plenty of added time to achieve it.
I wish I tried it right away the first time I attempted to get the achievement.

Hmmm well I'm directly on pace as it seems (24 1/2 hours with 24k kills to go). This leads me to my previous question that seems more important.

Can somebody join me on a coop game and add kills to my total? If so I think that will help push me over the edge...

Holy... Crap....

I pop 72k and the ending goes RIGHT after. I think I got 72 on the last minute....

To what the gent posted above me I would definately agree with doing the story.

But to reask my question in a different way.... Now that I have a save at 69k, can somebody join me on the last 3000 and get credit for it?
