Dead Island

Dead Island Achievements

Guns don't kill but they help

Kill 250 zombies using firearms.

If it fires bullets, it counts. Since there are so few bullets found in this game, your best option of doing this is reloading the checkpoint in City Hall with the mounted gun. Kill any immediate zombies, reload and repeat. You can get 15+ each time.

Note: Purna's rage skill counts toward this achievement.

This may be one of the more time-consuming ones since there aren't many firearms
readily available. Then again, if you can replay chapters and the co-op is decent,
this could be a breeze.

Ya, there should be a place where you can grind those two out quickly.

The 250 kills with; Blunt, Edged and Firearms are joined to certain characters. Eg. Leader character is good with guns, Assassin is good with edged and Tank is good with blunt. But yes of course u can do these with any of the characters.

Oh and theres also an all-rounder who is average with all weapons.

Actually they said it's not the guns that are hard to find, it's the ammo. Once you find where to get a supply, then no problem. Should be rather easy. Oh and achievement name is a reference to the movie "Shoot 'Em Up"

Yea, guns are easy find somewhat but its the ammo that makes the guns useless.

U get a load of guns in act 2, it's jus hard to find ammo. Jus look for humans in the slums and you will find your guns. They mostly use pistols but u can find shotguns and automatics.

Not forgetting that you can create your own pistol and shotgun ammo with the blueprints in the police station.

easy way to do this is to join a low level character with you being high level, so the zombies are easier to kill and you'll spend less ammo.

With the limited ammo, the best thing to do is melee the zombie until they're almost dead and finish them off with a single head/body shot. It's the last shot that counts so don't waste your bullets.

I've discovered a simple way of getting ammo :D you can find plenty of guns on the floor, if you pick 1 up then chuck it down you'll notice you pick up the ammo that was in the gun - so simply if your short on ammo but have somewhere with loads of guns pick em up chuck em down you'll replenish your ammo stock - though it is easier finding the mods and just creating more - not forgetting the guy at the lab that gives you free shotgun ammo everytime you go back there

It was mentioned before, but not really in specific enough terms for my taste so I'll repeat: Purna's fury action skill counts towards this achievement. So you'll never run out of ammo and it usually kills in 1-2 hits. You could double this with the "Rage Man" achievement.

In the lab there's a room with 10 shotgun shells on the table. If you keep reloading the last checkpoint and going back there, its infinite shotgun ammo. Just sayin...

In city hall, you come to a few doors that you have to break open. One of them brings you onto a balcony. If you look at the front of the balcony there's a turret sitting there, with a good 20 killable zombies down below on the street. If you wait a few minutes, Zombies run out of a building for a little bit, then 1 at a time they come out from behind a burning car. Just come here, kill all the zombies you can, then load a checkpoint and go at it again :) thats how I'm getting this one.

It's still easier doing it with the black chick's rage, since she uses a gun.
