Punch Bag Bonus

At Al Fresca Plaza in the Flex's Gym break each punch bag along the back wall for 2,000 PP each and then 10,000 PP for breaking them ALL.

Shotgun at the start of the game

When you atart inside the mall,(when you need to get stuff for the barricade) a guy named Brian or Mark is talking with another guy. When the zomies come inside, look for Brian or Mark (look quickly because he dies very fast) and go to where he died (he will be surrounded by zombies) and you will see a shotgun with ammo in it then you can go F*CKING BANG, BANG, BANG!

Easy experince

At the start when you are on the roof find natalie meyer and bring her to jeff meyer get a picture of when they hug then go through the elevator to the zombies then let them kill you then choose to save and you'll start at the beging but you'll have the experince of the picture of them hugging then just repeat P.S the shot of them hugging is worth up to 10'000

Second best melee wepon

If you can't beat adem the clown (like me) the best melee wepon is the maniken torso. Yes, you read right the maniken torso. You can pretty much take down almost every physcopath.

Indoorsman And Outdoorsman Achievements for the Price of One

Okay, so if you don't want to waste 4 hours of sitting inside and outside then simply do this glitch. First, start a new game and go down to entrance plaza. But don't activate the cutscene that lets the zombies in. If you want to go do something else for 2 hours, then make sure that you make the right analog stick move to the right or the left by taping it down, or just put something on it to make it stay. Then when the 2 hours is up, come back and make sure you got the Indoorsman achievement. If you didn't get it yet then make sure that it is noon on the 2nd day. When you do get it then let the zombies in and just run to the stairs. After the cut-scene in the security room, save your game and turn your 360 off then back on. When you get back to the main menu, load your game and when you..

Easy Way To Kill Zombies

When you are outside the shopping mall (were the 3 phscyopaths are in the car) Along one of the walls is a sort of tunnel go through it there will be quite a few zombies there but just walk past them after you have done that there will be a sports car and a motorbike in the car park get in one of the vehicles and go through the tunnel you didnt come through before there will be a bit of a wait because a loading screen will come up after it's gone off there will be loads and loads of zombies down that tunnel just keep running them over and you will have killed loads of zombies in just a short time


your very first accual mission will be to help brad DONT. go down into the m.tunnel and get the m.tunnel key and then get the map up of the m.tunnel up make your way to the north plaza entrance from the m.tunnel .
now you would be in the food store. go out. NONE OF THE SYCHOPATHS SPAWN YOUR FREE TO GET GUNS AND EVERYTHING. small thing to remember dont open the mane doors go back through the m.tunnel. enjoy ur sychopath free mall.

How to Beat Carlito

1st time: Run around to the back of the food court and jump on the boxes in the seating area, then follow the catwalk to where Carlito is, when he reloads time to UNLEASH A HAIL OF F*CKING BULLETS INTO HIM!then he runs around the back and there is a wall you get behind (on top of a restaurant) the wall will be blue, you can aim at Carlito and he will just shoot the wall so UNLEASH A HAIL OF F*CKING BULLETS IN TO HIM!
2nd time: Use the Machine gun from the convicts vehiclem (go onto the the second floor carlito should die in abot 3-8 seconds deponding on your accuracy.

Easy Perfect Gunner

To get the Perfect Gunner achievement easily and without breaking a sweat, go into the Butcher's place and unload an SMG into a side of beef that is hanging from the cieling. I don't know why but this counts as a hit.

Easy Karate Champ

To get the Karate Champ achievement quickly is a bit of a drag but just use the double lariet move time and time again on the multiple zombies down in the M. Tunnels

Easy PP!!!!!!!!

First, go to the plaza where you fight this insane old dude and a bunch of phycos (at least 50). Go where all the zombies are (you WILL se them!) and take pictures and you should get 2000PP each time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

super easy pp and a lot of zombie deaths

First go to the hardware store in al fresca plaza set up a barricade and get alot of lead pipes and throw them at the zombies. It's a timed insta kill that gives you pp. After that kill some zombies with queens and since your in al fresca plaza theres millions of zombies clusterd together so bombs away if it gets to late run over to the fitnest place and got to the bathroom and save make sure none of the windows are broken the when the lights come back on run back to the hardware store and let the zombie killing spree begin again

Unlimited Guns

To get unlimited guns (pistols only) go on a little zombie hunt and look for zombie security guards. They usually have a pistol with full ammo. Use this cheat and fill your pockets with guns and maybe some food then go to the north district. In the north district there is a gun shop with a guy who refuses to let you have guns and you have to fight him. DON'T TRY TO FIGHT HIM WITH JUST MELEE AND CLOSE RANGE WEAPONS. You'll probably die unless some miracle happens and even if you get close enough to have an edge on the fight he'll just throw you out which is why you need to use the security guard cheat and get lots of pistols and maybe some food just incase.

Sub machine guns

1. There is a sub machine gun in the paradise plaza first you go to the stairs to the right and there is a blue balcany thin on the wall. Go to the middle of the stais and jump up on it then go all the way back and there it is
2.there is one to the top left corner of the park and it is in a tree marked with a rock and pick it up and throw it in the tree where the gun is
3.there is one in al fresca plaza in the fountain

Sub-machine gun

Near the car park (outside) there is a tree with a rock underneath it and in the tree there is a sub-machine gun but you don't have to throw the rock at it but it's muck easier

super small CHAINSAW

The way to get the super small chainsaw is to go to the first book store you see and pick up a book to do with diy then go to the bachmans booktorium in paradise plaza and look for the entertainment book then go to sir book-a-lot in wonderland plaza where you fight addam the clown (the jappeneese tourists are there)in the back row pick up the criminal book then finally kill addam and take as many chainsaws as you want(realy you only need two because I've nearly completed the game and the special forces have come and it's flashing).
Happy zombie choping
