Not as bad as you'd think. If you don't have this after 5-skulling everything and doing Nightmare, you're close. I used the penultimate level, "Stairs of Doom", to rack up kills because it's easy. Just fill the two choke points on either side with three clockwork maces (upgraded swinging mace) and a 3 x 3 grid of tar traps under them, and waste whatever money you end up with afterwards. This should net you about 700 kills each time. If you can keep up with the kobold runners in the early waves, this strategy also works great for 5 skulls and Nightmare mode.

I'm one of the devs on this game (who also loves Achievements) -- this is nowhere
near as brutal as the worst Dead Rising / Gears kill count Achievements, though it
is certainly still a sign of being a true veteran Orc Slayer and not trivial
to achieve.

Damn, I hope this game is able to keep people interested long enough to rack up 30,000 kills

Wrong: "all those orcs could of had familys :p"

Right: "All of those orcs could have had families."

The more you know!

There better be a ton of orcs to kill in this game. I hate forced replays for the sole purpose of grinding kills.

@ #6

considering how it's Warhammer 40K and not Warhammer 30K, no i do not believe this is a reference to that particular franchise. this is a fantasy game from the looks of it, so, if anything, it would have more in common with the original Warhammer setting and not the 40K one, which takes place in the 41st millenium. /nerdness

Seeing that you get the 1000 kill one pretty quick, this should not take to long.

Guys complaining about achievements before even knowing the game is really annoying :(

I just played ~8 Levels and have about 2500 kills and there are 25 levels (I think) in the game, but you have to complete middle difficulty to unlock hard

so if you want all achievements you have to complete the game 2 times and i think you get close to 30k

@xemu: great work, nice combination of tower defense and serious sam ;)

I'm at 18,300 kills after finishing the main game and getting 5 skulls on every stage.
So, I'm not that close. Playing through Nightmare mode would probably get me a lot closer if not over the 30,000 mark. Don't know if I want to do that yet.

Personally, I'm grateful of the achievement. The game's pretty difficult, at least for me. And going back to get 5 skulls on every stage even more so. So being rewarded for casually playing through whatever level I want, win or lose, is appreciated.

Yeah, what I meant was if you are trying to get all achievements which includes completing nightmare mode, you should get the 30k achievement too.

And you are right, the game is getting harder now but only some levels. I had to try some a couple of times and then complete several in first try, little balance problems.

Got it after 10 maps done on nightmare mode, after completing 5 sculls on all maps first.

Doubt i manage to complete the nightmare achievement tho, getting really hard and stressful :P

Lol, i've done 4-5 skulls on almost every level in nightmare mode, plus have every achievement (bar this one) and am only on 26K... guess playing it on steam first time round means I pwn orks, like a BOSS!!
Any good levels to grind 3-4K orcs?
Can't wait for OMD2!

I found The Tower a fun easy level to finish up on, gets 650+ kills a game and allows you to basically choke the enemies before even reaching the stairs leading to the top level. So easy I just put brimstone down everywhere and shot the crossbow, cause I could, not because I had to ;)
