    I got this achievement, 250 kills playing solo and in about 15 or so minutes without wasting my bullets. I started with only 23 kills from guns only. How?

    Spoiler below ! :

    Don't worry too much about the achievement from early on. When you reach Chapter 7 - this is after the supermarket level cut scene where Jin steals the truck filled with supplies and you have to head back down the tunnel and back to city hall where every one there turns into a zombie.

    When you exit the sewers, you end up in a basement with the worktable.

    Just follow the waypoint going up. You'll encounter about 5-6 zombies till you reach the...mounted machinegun! Tadaaa! From there you'll get a chance to take free shots of about 12-15 zombies with out wasting your own hard to find bullets.

    After the zombies stop spawning just reload your checkpoint and you start at the basement with the worktable.

    From here on you only encounter between 1-3 zombies randomly spawning and they are usually on their own.
    Rinse and repeat, and achievement pops and bullets saved!

    - Every reload of the checkpoint gives you about 12-15 zombies to shoot at with the machinegun.
    - Do not shoot the barrels to your right and the truck to the left. The explosion kills the zombie and it won't count as a gun kill.
    - If you count only 10 or so kills on a particular checkpoint reload, aim the machine gun to the upper corner. about 1 o' clock of the two explosive barrels is a wall, there are usually walkers behind that wall, shoot it even if you dont see anything. you'll be surprised at how many are grouped there occasionally.
    -Make sure you close both doors before using the machine gun. We don't want to have any surprises now do we?

    *edited for spelling.

    RuranskiThanks for posting this. I was in City Hall when I read your guide so was a no-brainer to get it done. And only a mini grind, perfect!

    BillarghGranted it wasn't with the mounted machine gun, but the kills I got from shooting barrels with a gun counted toward this achievement.

    Beam147When u go over the little barrier before going around the balcony there is a grenade sitting on the floor. This respawns each time you reload checkpoint.

    This is how I done it, not the quickest I know but still a good method. Okay make sure you have full ammo on your guns then fast travel to the abandoned house in city of moresby then depending which way you look at it, on the left or right there will be a sort of beach and just a little bit up the beach there is about 15 zombies. Just kill all of them with your guns (shouldn't take long as they're walkers) then once you've killed them all run back to the abandoned house, enter it then come back out and they would have spawned again. If you run out of ammo go in the abandoned house and fast travel to anywhere that sells ammo then fast travel back. Then rinse and repeat. Hope this helps, if you vote negative say why and how I could improve it, this is only my second guide.

    This is the location that I did it:

    City of Moresby
    - On your map, look just south of the Church. You will notice a T-junction SE of the Church, with a yellow marker for the sewer.

    If you approach that sewer hatch, straight ahead there will be 2 humans with guns. Tjey show up on your radar as skulls. Kill them and pick up their ammo. Usually you will get one drop of 30 bullets, sometimes they both drop ammo.

    Kill zombies in the area and exit via the yellow sewer hatch. Return, and voila, the 2 guys are back with more ammo for you!

    Good if you don't have a blueprint or have gone past the minigun.

    Enter and exit that sewer manhole as many times as required.
