(This method was discovered by me.)

This is super easy to get but multiple things can cause this to glitch.
(You did a new game, the game crashed, you loaded up a previous check point, or the worse offender; it just simply glitches.)

This is what you'll need to do to hopefully fix the problem and get the achievement.
Go to "My games & apps", press the start button over Deaad Rising 3 and select "Manage game".
Move all the way to the right and find your gamertag, press A.
Select "Delete from console". ("Delete everywhere will permanently delete your file, don't pick that.)
Now go to the systems "Settings" and select "Network" to disable your internet connection. (Or just remove your ethernet if you aren't using WiFi)

PHEW! Still with me?
Boot up the game real quick while offline and save the gamma settings. Once at the main menu you can go ahead and quit out.
Reconnect to your WiFi connection (or plug back in your ethernet) and boot the game again.
After you Press A at the main screen it will ask you to select either brand new local file (This console) or your old cloud file (Xbox Live). SELECT NEITHER!
Picking one will overwrite the other, instead click the bottom option "Stop syncing". You will still play with the brand new file but it will not overwrite your old one.
Now boot up Episode 3 and move as fast as possible to get out of the police station.
Start hunting down the Emergency Phones which are marked as bright yellow circles with yellow squares in them.
You shouldn't really worry about leveling up but I highly suggest you get to level one and put a attribute into "Smarts" so you can find all the phones with a lot less hassle.

Make use of your DLC vehicles.
Destroy all Emergency Phones in one sitting to reduce the chances of you deleting your old save by accident or the achievement glitching again.
Once you get this done, quit out and boot the game one final time to select your old Xbox Live save file and get your old save data back.
