This game has a total of 50 achievements all worth 20 points each. Some are real easy, others, of course, are insanely hard. What makes some of these points even harder is the save system. A lot of gamers gave up on the game quite early because they couldn’t get their heads around it.

When you die in the game, the game takes you right back to the beginning, which can be seen as really annoying. However being a simple RPG, everytime you die, you have a choice of keeping your stats and continuing to level up. So basically, the more you die, the easier the game becomes. The game is easy when you reach Level 50, it is just time consuming getting there!

If you just want to play to get achievements, then I seriously recommend to use the Free Mode Glitch below and then do the Zombie Genocider Achievement.  This will take about four hours and you will pick up some milestone achievements on the way, but you will be rewarded with a Real Mega Blaster gun that TOTALLY blows bosses (psychopaths) in three shots and make the game real easy.

Because this site is about EASY achievements, I have only listed the achievements that are easy!

Free Mode Glitch

This glitch allows you have a full free 72 hours game time to complete achievements, without having to do the main missions. You can easily unlock the Zombie Genocide Achievement, by driving over zombies in the Maintenance Tunnels, without having to worry about running to do missions.

Start a new game as normal until you reach the warehouse. Either walk forward, if you have taken the lift, or drop down from the shelves if you have entered through the top door. Walk towards the exit that leads to the mall and STOP. Do not enter the hallway. Just stay there and wait until 7pm  game time.

After 7pm you will get the Queen Insect cut-scene, which isn’t meant to happen until near the end of the game. After the cut-scene, you can enter the hallway. The cut-scene which normally happens when you walk through the hallway, where Jessie asks you to find Brad, will not be activated. Since the first mission is not activated, none of the other main missions will be activated. You are now free to enter the mall and wreck havoc to unlock achievements.

Outdoorsman Achievement Glitch

Here’s an achievement you can earn just by turning on the Xbox ! This achievement requires you to spend at least 24 hours outdoors. But here’s a real easy way to complete this. You first need to complete the Indoorsman Achievement, which isn’t hard at all. You need to stay indoor for 24 hours (2 hours REAL TIME)  without going outdoor at all. The easiest way is to stay in a Save Room for the whole time, and you have to be in a Save Room at the end, for the glitch to occur.

As soon as the Indoorsman Achievement pops, SAVE your game and turn off your Xbox. Turn your Xbox back on again and reload the game. Wait around in the Save Room for a couple of minutes and the Outdoorsman Achievement will unlock.


Zombie Genocider                                                                       20 G

TYPE: 1 Play REQ: Defeat at least 53,594 zombies.

Do the Free Mode Glitch above then run across Leisure Park to the car park and entrance to the Maintenance Tunnels. The car park is marked with a red “X” on the map below.

Once you reach the car park, get into the red convertible, run over some zombies then head into the Maintenance Tunnels. Turn left  and then left again and continue until you reach a dead end with masses of zombies.  There you will find another truck to hop into. There is a video on YouTube (actually quite a few) that show the route to take. I have posted one below.

You should rack about 1000 zombie kills per run. The vehicles re-spawn when you re-enter and exit the tunnels so  don’t worry if you damage the vehicles too much.  Try to stay in the vehicles as much as possible, because if you die (which can happen easily on level1), the kill tally resets to zero! You will collect the “1,000” and “10,000” kill achievements and you will also level up quite a bit while doing this achievement.
