the fire axe was in one of the tents right at the starting area of the last level. There are six tents around you and it is in one of them.

Yea I can't find hatchet lol. Fire axe is in the hardware shop in the strip mall when you meet Noah for the second time if you didn't go to the hospital. I forget the town's name but you also find an SUV which is great because it carries 4 survivors along with 14 inventory slots.

machete is in like a man's head when you go back to the diner to tell scout that mia is okay when you find her. so you need to do the mission for scout. you find her note and then when you open the door in the back there it is.

#14, there is a sledge hammer in the shed in the cemetary when you have to plant all the fireworks in the church, right before the church door. Also, there is a sledge hammer in the garage of the guy who is in Sherwood, the one who's wife is infected.

You can also get these achievements in Herd mode. Every weapon in the game is on the map, you just have to get past a few waves so that each area opens up and gives you more weapons.

Can this be done over more than the one play through?

About ready to start my 2nd play through, all I need is a kill with the lead pipe and I will let you know if it can span across more than 1 play through.

It definitely spans across more than one play through. The lead pipe can be found on the level with the gas station and the copper on the roof. All the achievements do. I'm struggling to find the hatchet at the sawmill, any ideas?

@21 On the mission at the drive in theatre: when you go to get her cat there is a hatchet on the table in the shed behind her house.

I used the lead pipe during my first playthrough but the achievement never unlocked after finishing the list. I grabbed it on the 2nd time thru & the achievement popped. I know I killed with it previously but for some reason it didnt count. I guess double check every weapon if you're not sure.

The machete could be found at the lumber mill camp where you meet Swenson. As soon as you go through the broken fence turn left and walk closely to the wall and the machete should be there.
