    Let me clarify how this achievement worked for me:

    -Upgraded weapons DID NOT count towards total
    -The only kills that counted towards the 250 were with CREATED WEAPONS, meaning Shock Weapons, Flaming Weapons, Nail Bats, etc.

    I also suggest that while going for this achievement, you stick with one category of modified weapons meaning if you have a CREATED BLUNT MELEE WEAPON and you also have a CREATED EDGED MELEE WEAPON, stick with one of them and only use the other if the one you usually use is broken down since you'd be racking up kills for both this achievement and at the same time getting a good start to

    or

    Solution Update 2: Neeker75 has pointed out he got credit towards both Blunt and Special weapon kills using the Nail Bat.

    Solution Update: I've been made aware by oZOMBIE HITMANo that upgraded weapons no longer count towards this achievement. If anyone experiences otherwise then maybe this is just a buggy achievement.

    This achievement is obtained by killing 250 Zombies with Modified weapons. So basically anything you make at the bench, (Deo-Bombs Nail Bats etc). I got this achievement really early on without really using many modified weapons which leads me to believe upgraded weapons count as modified weapons. Which makes this achievement a lot quicker. If anyone encounters any issues with the last part just let me know and I'll remove it from the guide, if it's patched etc.

    Riispawn NationYeah idk, the only kills I got that counted for this achievement were using weapons that I created. So kills using weapons I upgraded or repaired didn't count for me

    neeker75I was using a nail bat, and it counted for both Blunt Weapons and Special Weapons. Very easy.
