Ok, just got it. List is 100% correct.

here are a few other observations:

Janus's money case is not needed
Weapons used DO track over your saves. Therefore, any weapon you use is tracked no matter what slot you save to.

I know this to be true, as I had one save just before the twins on case 4-1.

I started a new game on save slot 1, did all weapons I could up to day 2 Zombrex then loaded the save closer to the Katana, Military case and Comedy trophy, and it unlocked straight after I used the trophy on my third save slot, even though I did the majority on my first save slot. I only intended it as an experiment, because I didn't want to wait right through till day 3.

I know for a fact that I have never used the money case, and that I didn't use weapons like bricks, spotlights, scissors and the cooking oil before.

People dont seem to understand the meaning of that, it's not about using a "save slot" but it's about continuing the same game over and over, it's independent of the A-B-C slots

so if you start a new game from scratch and overwrite your A slot, you will lose what was on A

Yeah, I hoped people would understand better if I described it as saving into different slots, as opposed to restarting a game on one save slot.

If you have a save slot around the 4-1 part of the game, you will save a lot of time going for this achievement.

Yeah I figure the money case isn't needed but since u have to go all the way to 5-2 for military case I figured id leave it in. I color coded the 4 unneeded items purple but left them in for the sake of thoroughness. Guess enough people have confirmed it now so I won't be making any more revisions.

ok i'm having difficulty in doing this i must b missing something been through it twice on the same save file
the military case at 5-2 is it only the one by the lift that count as i have seen other military cases before this time so if i used those could that not been counted ?
Is there other items that need to be in a specific time and place to count for the melee apart from the ones aready known ?

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.

Lol! Thanks dude! I was racking my brain wondering what was up with this cheevo,I read & re-read life's guide trying to figure out what I missed then I read this & BAM!! Achievement unlocked!

Oh, & I'd like to add that most items I've either thrown @ a zombie or hit it once w/ the said item.

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.

I followed this last night and got it no problems. I had previously made note of all the story related items and used them in that playthrough - I never used Janus' case though so I guess that didn't count.

The method I used was to tap X, hold X and then throw the weapon just in case.

Good guide though! Thanks!

That Fancy Small Chair got me too. They are along the perimeter of the stage area in front of casino games.

Great list and locations, thanks.

Just wondered because I read it somewhere, do you have to use all the melee in one playthrough? Someone said, somewhere, you don't need to but I didn't think that sounded right but I made sure I killed a zombie with the military case just in case it was true.

Don't mind having to do that again though.

No it doesn't have to be in one playthrough. Considering so many people found the fancy small chair or small potted plant were their missed items ill try to update the guide to highlight those commonly missed items when I have a computer handy.

I recommend that you highlight the long stick in Fortune City Hotel, as it was my last melee weapon and many others too. In fact, I've never even came across the option to pick it up because it was so obscure.

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.
