Siege Hammer (15)
Install a total of 5 barricades during hub defense
Hub defense is when you have to defend yourselves from waves of zombies. The earliest you can do this is during the main quest “Back to Reality
”. Just set up the barricades on the designated exits and let the zombies break those barricades. Simply set them up again for this to count.

Professional Tourist (30G)
Find all pages from the guide book
Refer to the guide's Collectibles > Island Guide section for more information.
These two special Boss Zombies
are found in the Pinai Ferry Station. One of them is located along the beach to the north. He'll most likely come running towards you once you get in territory. The other one is inside the large, closed workshop with the large sign.
Before heading to the prisoners, plant some mines in front of the Workshop building and make your way to the back of the sign. Climb up to find some supplies and a sniper rifle above. This will make the second twin zombie to burst out of the workshop and get killed by the mines you planted. The corresponding achievement should unlock as well.
News Junkie (30G)
Find all the volunteer's voice Recordings
Refer to the guide's Collectibles > Recording section for more information.
At Your Service (15)
20 NPCs that have been grabbed by monsters
When you're defending a hub, there will be times that a fellow survivor will get grabbed by an enemy. You'll know this when you see a circle appear over their heads while struggling. Kill / kick the assailant to free your ally. Do this 20 times to unlock the achievement. This doesn't have to be different NPCs; even saving the same person multiple times do count towards the achievement.
The Hurt Mine Locker (15)
Kill 10 monsters with one mine
It is a challenge to kill 10 zombies all at once in one mine charge as they almost never travel as densely packed like that. Here's one method of doing it and it includes getting the attention of 10 zombies and killing all but 9, without decapitating or dismembering them. Please follow PowerPyx's video.
Kill 50 monsters by smashing, decapitating or shooting them in the head
Destroying a zombie's head is the fastest way of killing it so getting 50 kills using this method is easy and will unlock naturally. Once you've unlocked a particular skill, you should be able to stomp on a downed zombie's head. Finishing enemies like this also counts to the “Bully” achievement.
Kill 100 monsters with thrown melee weapons
With a melee weapon equipped (except knuckles), press LT to aim then RT to throw. This prevents your weapon from getting damaged and will allow you to deal solid damage to the target. You have to be careful though since a misplaced throw can make you lose your weapon due to glitching or simply being thrown in an unreachable area.
Kill 100 monsters with a kick
This is easily done after unlocking the Stomp ability. Early in the game however, you can literally kick a downed zombie until it dies for good.
Kill 100 monsters using the boat's speed boost
The jetboat is unlocked alongside the main story and is only available in the Flooded Jungle. There are several speedboat locations across the map. While riding the boat, press A to get a speed boost which will be enough to kill any zombies along the way, including those Drowners that will try to hitch a ride. Remember to “cool down” after every boost to avoid overheating the engine. You have to kill 100 zombies using this method so just grab a boat and follow the waterways until you rack enough kills.
Kill 100 enemies using charge attacks
Charge is a new ability that will allow you to run towards and enemy and perform a powerful, wide-area attack. This attack costs a lot of stamina and won't kill a zombie instantly. It will be unwise upgrading this skill to improve its damage so it will help weakening the zombies first before finishing them off with a charge.
Better than the arm (30G)
Kill 25 monsters with a chainsaw
You can get a chainsaw while doing the side quest “Genre Horror Slasher”. The chainsaw is located inside the deadzone where the quest giver sends you. The next is after completing the main quest Militarized Zone
. Near the base entrance is a survivor. Rescue
her and she'll start selling military equipment. One of those is a chainsaw. Finally after defeating the last boss, she'll drop a golden chainsaw as well.
It's an Order (15)
Mark 100 opponents which were then killed by your co-op partners
This only works when playing with another player. Press the left D-PAD to mark a zombie then have your partner kill it. Unfortunately, you can only mark one target at a time.
King among Kings (30)
Kill special enemies: Grenadier, Thug, Wrestler, Infected, Suicider, Screamer, Butcher, Floater.
You'll encounter several of these special zombies during your playthrough and especially when doing sidequests. Kill at least one of each type to unlock.
