Dead Rising 3 Achievements

Survival Training Master

Win 25 Survival Training Gold medals.

Looking at your in-game map, you will notice hollowed out star icons. These star icons signify training challenges that you can complete for massive PP bonuses, making these important for both leveling progress and for the achievements. All of the challenges task you with killing a certain number of enemies with a certain type of weapon or vehicle, such as fire or electric weapons, combo weapons only, or unarmed only within one minute. Many of the challenges can be completed using the Rollerhawg to quickly roll around the nearby area killing enemies, and the more difficult unarmed ones can be completed using the unarmed bonus damage book and the knee drop combo.

Some Quick Notes:
Fire weapons can include the Rollerhawg, Flame Mecha Dragon, Flame Arrows, etc. and does not include explosives. Electric weapons can include the Elecrtic staff, Rolling Thunder, and shockdozer.

Also note that you can go anywhere during the challenge, and you're not confined to a particular area, however you will want to plan out where you go prior to starting the challenge to maximize your kill efficiency.

You can check out THIS playlist for a few videos that give you the general run through of the different types of Survival Training missions.

Several of the challenges requite electric or fire kills; but you can use a vehicle to complete these challenges. Then their are others for vehicle and just kill a certain amount of zombies and I used a vehicle too.

The o ly ones I gave not done yet are barehanded and firearm kills.

A helpful tip for the unarmed survivals is to use the Stunt Devil book on your player that raises the damage of your unarmed attacks.

For the firearms survivals, go to a safe zone beforehand and stock up on as many LMGs as you can carry. Again, if you use the Fortune Fighter book on your player, the guns will do more damage and kill quicker.

These are remarkably easy, especially once you've maxed out Nick. Normally these sorts of achievements bother people, but it's really not necessary this time, they're really quite easy.

I need a guide on how to get to the stars! It's ridicules that these are a puzzle to get to, required to do on the same game AND the game is timed.

The 2nd one I am trying to get to is impossible to reach. It's in Ingletom on a roof across from the Motel safe house. I can see a plank running from a window to it but there is no way to access the 2nd floor (or the plank) in that building. There is a locked door in that building. I don't if that leads upstairs or not.

Were the designers actually stupid enough to only allow access to the tacked on survival challenges after doing something else in the game?

Games like this get me so mad. It could have been so good if they would have changed a few things.

PS: I have beat the game on normal and nightmare with the best ending and got

#8 there is a store called Luxury by the downed helicopter. If you go in and go to the back you can go upstairs and work your way over to that building without waiting smart glass mission. Just found it last night.
