At first i thought this was gonna be a pain in the ass to do, but its really easy.

start a solo game. I know it sounds crazy but this is by far the easiest way to do it

First round shoot the zombies 5-6 times with your pistol, then knife them, for maximum points.

do the same for round 2 when round 3 starts open the GATE not the stairs. run down stairs and grab the Thompson SMG, It is a beast when it comes to headshots. position your self on the other side of the blocked stairs, next to the comm room door (do not open it yet)

Use the thompson and start picking off headshots, when you get 950 points you want to utilize the mystery box and hopefully get either a ray-gun or a Wunderwaffen (I call it a WonderWaffle)(Switch out your empty pistol for the new guns).

You want to open the comm room area before round 6 (first round of dogs, you should also have between 35-40 headshots by now) once you open the door make your way to the side of the comm room (DO NOT OPEN THE COMM ROOM EVER!!!! It causes the dogs to spawn in there and you will not get the minor break inbetween dog spawns, also it makes it a pain to run laps when the zombies are coming through there) going to the side of the building causes the dogs to be spread out (refer to 1:50 on the video below to see what I mean).

Once that round is over refer to the video below (thanks o0OMorrisO0o) for the best solo strategy that I have come across on the web, (instead of using the ray gun just use your thompson)

When you are running your "laps" every 3rd lap or so you should turn around and unload on the chasing zombies, with any luck you should have the achievement unlocked by round 15. you will want to get juggernog and speed cola for sure, this is also a great way to get the big baller achievement. hope this helps and happy fragging

EDIT: If the random box spawns in the comm room before you have the ray gun or the Wunderwaffen, just restart the round
