Welcome to Zombie Wranglers. This very coop-orientated game includes not only a single-player campaign with five episodes, but also a great cooperative mode and skirmish multiplayer.

Step #1: Play through the game

First, you want to start the single-player campaign. You may invite a friend and let him help you since everything you do in coop will count towards achievements as well. There are a total of four collectible achievements (Tarot cards, Voodoo dolls, Gloomex canisters, Frozen Codebase zombies) to collect, see the guide below for further information on these. You will find multiple canisters in levels and only one Voodoo doll and Tarot card per level. You might want to check the guide for locations of the codebase-shirt wearing zombies.

After a few missions, you will enter your first survival mission. See the achievement description for Undead Basket below on how to obtain that. As you enter the third set of stages, you will eventually encounter two Franken - big Frankenstein-like enemies. Again, see the achievements description below.

These are all achievements you will have to worry about – the rest will come in normal gameplay. As stated below, you may always repeat a level to collect things in case you missed them. As long as you complete the stage and don’t just quit out, your progress will be saved.

Step #2: Multiplayer Achievements

After you’ve done everything necessary for the singleplayer-achievements, you might want to start the multiplayer to gain the three remaining achievements! These are done pretty quickly, except for one.

The only things you will need to are win a multiplayer match (Master Wrangler), kill 25 zombies with your ranged weapon () in ranked multiplayer (Zombie Horde) and get a viral achievement (Zombification). The first one may be done in a player match as well as a ranked match, it simply doesn’t matter. Zombie Horde is best done in a player match since you can adjust the settings the way you want and are able to invite a friend. Since Zombification is a viral achievement, you only have two options here.

First would be to play a match and hope for the best or just use the Achievement Trading Thread which can be found HERE.

If you ever get stuck at any point or just have a simple question, feel free to visit the x360a Zombie Wranglers forums HERE.


Except for the final boss fight, this game is really an easy 200 and a fun game to play with more people. If you miss out any collectibles, you may always go back to previous levels to pick them up. Note that you will have to complete the level to make the game save them. The levels are very short, so you will be done with the whole game within a few hours.
x360a would like to thank T0b3 for this Road Map

Undead Basket10
Complete a survival mission only using your wrangler pack.   
There are a total of three survival missions in the game. This is easiest done in the first one.

Just beat enemies using only your wrangler. You are allowed to pick up health items.
Once the time runs out, the level ends and you receive your achievement.

You could also just wrangle one zombie and run around the enclosed area, avoiding all enemies.
Zombie Assassin!13
Kill 25 Zombies using your ranged weapon in online Ranked Skirmish.   (2) 
Just start up a ranked match and kill twenty-five enemies using your ranged weapon ().
Zombie Horde20
Suck up 50 zombies in campaign, co-op, Ranked Multiplayer.   (1) 
This one will definitely come on your way through the game, so no worrying here.
Frank is that YOU?11
Defeat a Franken without taking any damage.   (1) 
The best spot to do this is in the third chapter where you'll first encounter a Franken.

After you've lured one Franken away from the other, either punch () to stun him or wait for him to do his jump-attack, which will stun him after you've dodged his impact. Use your wrangler on him while he's stunned to rip some sort of antenna off his backpack.

Avoid the exploding creatures by walking away - you don't want to shoot them or else they will hurt you.

You will need to do this three more times to finally suck him up. Note that he will release a large amount of those exploding creatures after you've downed him. Just walk away a few steps until they explode and don't worry - he won't get up again.
You're Not Brain Dead4
Wrangle a Zombie.   
Just use your wrangler for the first time.
Hey Doc! It's GO time!42
Defeat the final boss.    
The final fight is split into 6 phases:

1st phase: Four of the turrets will shoot rockets and groups of enemies come out of both doors.
2nd phase: Two of the turrets will shoot rockets and groups of enemies come out of both doors.
3rd phase: A zombie ball will appear out of the left door.
4th phase: Two Franken appear out of both doors.
5th phase: One Franken (left door) and a group of zombies (right door) will appear.
6th phase: The boss appears.

Now for the boss: To beat him, hit him once with your ranged weapon so he gets stunned. Once you've accomplished this, hit him with a melee attack () from either left or right.

Since this doesn't make much damage and a massive amount of zombies will be spawned, this might get tricky.

Concentrate on the boss and stick with power-ups. One of the most important things here is the zombie-disguise. Every enemy - including the boss - will ignore you, giving you plenty of time to land an attack. Once you've finished him, get rid of all the remaining zombies and the level - and the game - will end.
