*EDIT* There's been some confusion as to if these are stackable with the "do it once" achievement and let me clear things up a little: The game gave me both of the achievements at the same time. Hence I can confirm that they ARE stackable. However the game (like many many others) is glitchy and may not give you the achievement first playthough. I cannot help this but these ARE stackable.

Survivor mode gives you less ammo and resources. The game itself isn't too difficult and I suggest playing on this game type right off the start as the difficulty achievements stack.

A few helpful tips: In order to survive multiple opponent engagements: Try to make out who has what weapon or armor on. This makes the order of killing them much easier to decide. Try to get a surprise kill while getting bullied and immediately point your gun at any opponent with a gun. Almost all guns in the game on this difficulty have bullets so shooting an enemy is worth the bullet because you'll just get one back.

When you have the bow. If every enemy has a machete try to use the pistol to back them up and when you have enough distance between you and them switch to your bow. Kill one and then switch back to your gun. Pick up your arrow from the dead body and then rinse repeat.

The order you should kill people in is as follows:
- Anyone with a gun
- Armored machete
- Big machete
- Small machete

- People with guns do a lot of damage to you and make it a lot harder to control a crowd with your weapons. Killing them is the number 1 priority.
- Armored machete's must be shot in an unarmored part to kill them (still a 1 shot though). they won't stop if you point any weapon at them and will walk towards you until death.
- Big machete's can be controlled for a very short period of time. They get "ballsy" (will flat out rush you with a machete) when you tell them to back-up too many times or if you don't do anything for a certain period of time. Killing them will make it so that you can control a crowd for a lot longer and conserve precious ammo when dealing with multiple enemies.
- By simply pointing your gun at a small machete they will stay there and continue backing up. they are easily dispatched through the previously mentioned method with he bow. However they are also easily backed into pits or fires for easy kills.

Another simple tip to help conserve ammo is when you're down to just 1 enemy and there are no pits or fires around to get the enemy into. Don't waste a bullet. Just walk up to them with you gun out and press X for a struggle kill. Just tap RT until you get the kill. Easy enough.

Thanks for reading. Have fun and stay ALIVE!
