He's in the second "chapter" of the Dark Carnival campaign. Once you get into the actual carnival, on the right hand side there will be a "Peanut Gallery". Score 750 points or more (having teammates help is a plus), and a prize box will open on the left hand side, revealing Chompski. Carry him all the way to the end of the campaign and the achievement is yours.

Note: Once the campaign is finished with the gnome in the chopper, everyone gets the achievement. So you don't have to worry about doing this over and over again for each person.

Start up "Last Gnome on Earth" mutation, on Dark Carnival - Chapter 5. Pick up the Gnome, go to the stage, and outlast the waves. Get on the helicopter and make sure you're holding the Gnome. Achievement unlocked.

To make it easier on the roller coaster part of the campaign, throw the gnome over the fence directly to the right of the switch that starts the ride. It makes it a hell of a lot easier to make it past the first half without having to worry about losing him if you get knocked over by any special infected. Plus, he'll land past the section you can't climb back up, thus eliminating that problem.

If you playing this on single player and I would recommend you do this on multiplayer also. When you get to the coaster part after the tunnel of love, right when you get to the first down slope of the coaster throw the gnome over the side rails to the right of you. The gnome will land on the ramp leading to the safe room. So you will be free from dropping the gnome on the coaster and focus on the horde coming. In all my run-through of helping people get the achievement this have never failed or glitched.

Just make sure you are looking towards the ramp and looking over the side rails when you throw him.

In the Dark carnival look for the shooting gallery. Press the red button and hit enough targets till you score 750 points. This will unlock the prize gnome. Carry the gnome all the way till the evacuation. You are able to put him down to fight through the waves of zombies.

You can also get the CLOWND achievement by hitting the clowns in the face 10 times with the gnome. Do this achievement on easy or with a group of friends.

You have to first get enough points on the game where he is on the 2nd chapter of "Dark Carnival". Have one team mate carry him and you all need to protect him/her. The only hard part may be the end of the 4th chapter when you go through the turnstiles and the zombies just don't stop coming. After you've alerted the hoard drop Gnome Chompski i the middle of the map and go to the jesus plywood (in video below). If you have a bot on your team, kill them before alerting the hoard. The reason for Gnome Chompski being in the middle is because the helicopter can land on either side of the map so just run, grap the gnome and get in the helicopter and the achievement is yours. Also, you will obtain an avatar award. A "Depeche Mode" t-shirt (Rochelle's t-shirt).

Good Luck xP

Just thought I'd add that you have to be holding the gnome in the helicopter at the end of the campaign. When I did it with a friend, everyone was in the helicopter except him, so I dropped the gnome to try and shoot the tanks and save him. But he died so the mission automatically ended, and while I the gnome was sitting on the ground in the helicopter, me not holding it, this no achievement. I was super pissed considering there was 2 hours wasted
