    When attempting to break open doors, be sure to press forward the Right Stick once the bar hits the very center. Simple as that.
    If the bar moves too quickly for you, you can just not complete the command and wait it out until you can time it well, otherwise you'll have to keep hitting the door and attempt the achievement on another door.

    No worries, folks! There are plenty of doors in the game to try this at another time. Otherwise, you could just start up a new game.
    During my first playthrough (as Logan), I ran into a break-in door almost immediately. Then a second while on-way to your first quest's goal.

    EDIT:
    As a side note, I'd like to add that counting to four does help as well. By that point, you'd have picked up the rhythm to hit the center.

    EDIT­²:
    "When you reach the Lifeguard Tower, you are given a Quest to break in to the Medical Room. If you don't break the door in on the first try, you can restart checkpoint and it will put you right in front of the door again."

    Thanks for that tip, Callum.

    DragonCrusaderVthis achievement is more time consuming than kill 25 zombies with your fists

    RichSeventy4You can also just restart the very first checkpoint you get in the Prologue, skip cutscene, exit door, run down the corridor into the room with the jammed door and keep trying til you get it.

    Thanks for the guide, needed a quick first achievement to get the game onto my games list (as I currently do with every new game I buy). I did it the way RichSeventy4 mentions above; restarting the checkpoint two or three times before getting it right.

    The best way I found to get this achievement is that once you start, hold down the right stick. Let the bar go up and come back down, once it's on its way back up wait for it to get near the middle (not on the middle but a bit under it) and quickly move the right stick up.

    goal: Breach a locked door on the first try.
    note: The needle lags.

    a) Hold the right thumbstick down and let the needle scroll up and down.
    **** Aim just before the target zone (on the edge of red). push up. ****

    b) Otherwise use Sam B's tackle skill. Found early under the combat tree.

    - A good door(s) is on the lifehouse, your first task at the start of a new game (Act 1). Try the back door first, if that fails you can try the front door too. To retry press START and reload the checkpoint.

    * method A found @ xbox360achievements.org. Understanding the lag is crucial.
