Easily done with the book Bikes (lets your bike life 3 times longer) and the motor chainsaw in the Underground Access. :)

The only thing to keep in mind; Bikes is only obtainable when you solved Case 3-1 and beaten the bad guys in the Slot Ranch Casino.

Does anyone know whether or not this one is a cumulative achievement or a "single
play through" because I got the chopper achievement with only about 500 kills in
so, either way I assume I will get it after my current play trough.

Another good idea is get a repulse drink and the bike magazine (slot ranch casino in office room) head to the rock stage in the strip, drink the repulse, take the chainsaw and run for the trailer, combine the chainsaw and bike and have fun! the bike SHOULD last aprox 3000 kills with the magazine so 2 attempts should get it for you, i killed around 900 but ran out of time so now Im going through the story again to try again

How do you know if they're special or not?

so it isn't cumulative?

It doesn't need to be cumulative. I got this by using the trustee SUV, just like Zombie Genocide Master, once the gas started I just ran out to the SUV and went up and down the strip killing the special zombies (they are a little faster and never seem to wear shirts).

It's even easier than before because you can now drive the SUV down the ramp to the Maintenance Tunnels and just drive back up to the strip and there will be a new SUV spawned so once your done you can park next to the new SUV, get out, and get right into the new SUV. I got the achievement with time left before Last Stand expired, about 3k kills total, and just loaded the game where I saved before going after this achievement so it didn't affect my play through.

How do you unlock the SUV? Thanks.

The SUV is unlockable at the pawn shop those looters run. Although they have 4 locations, the SUV is to be bought near the Sloth Ranch Casino on the Silver Strip. It will be 2 million dollar, but if you have the bargaining books, it can set down for about 1.6 million dollar. The SUV is located in the Shamrock Casino which is in the middle of the the hawaii kind of outside bar and the Rock-stage.

Anyhow ontopic, this achievement is easily obtainable with the previous said bike + chainsaw combo. You can only modify your bike if you have defeated Leon in the side-mission: Meet the contestants. As he will die he will unlock his promo-container which has a extra bike in it. The best time is just before beating the final boss (not the overtime mode offcourse) you enter the place where you fou

How do people know the exact count of gas zombies they've killed? I'm sure it'll be too late for me once someone posts the info but someone else might benefit from knowing how to keep track

Just thought I let everybody know there is an easier and quicker way that I found by accident.
Take the suv down into the tunnels and when you get to the gate that's only half open take a run up and you can actually get it under the gate. The advantage to this is that there are lots more special zombies down there and I think you could probably do it in 1 go, it took me 2 but that's because the suv was already a bit smashed up.
Oh and don't forget to get the mag from the BBQ shack to make it last longer.

#15 was good advice. Just had to ram the half-gate and wiggle my way through. I circled the underground for 1600 total kills, which was enough to get 1000 gas zombies.

Thanks, #15. That did the trick

Thank You #15!!! I was able to do it in a couple of trips around the underground. Actually my SUV got damaged and stopped working... I got out and killed the last 5 or so with the spiked baseball bat and click!!! Achievement! :)

Easy achievement using the underground and SUV, but should really change the title so it says "Gas Zombies" not "special infected". That had me looking for unusually dressed zombies all through my story mode lol

I got this pretty easily during TK's fetch quest. If you're above ground and don't have a vehicle my advice would be to make sure you have plenty of the pulse guns (?) from the underground lab. These are weak against regular zombies but can take out a whole group of special zombies in one shot.

seriously a pain in the ass, but if you get the magazine for bikes in the office in the slot ranch casino, and then bring a chainsaw to the bike trailer and combine them, just head to the underground, the bike will last a long time, and there is a ton of special zombies down there

Yeah but how do you know how many of the special zombies you have killed? There's no "special zombie" count

Anyone know.
