I did this in Sedalia. SuperS0nicSam commented that there may be easier locations to unlock this, such as Lemon Hill. That's certainly a possibility to look into if you have trouble here. I chose Sedalia because there is a bare minimum of walker herds to get through and it's directly after the tutorial level, so it will probably be the most familiar map for all gamers and the easiest to get to.

1) Clear the first area of the street up to the tanker truck blockade.

2) Then clear the store, exit out the back door and clear back alley.

3) Enter next store via its rear door and clear it. I recommend ignoring Blake for this achievement, as trying to save him will spawn more random zombies.

4) Leave out front **watch the zombie waiting outside front door.** Shine his face with a flashlight to bait him into coming in after you or kill him with a silenced weapon.

5) Clear next part of street and talk to Warren Bedford at gas station across the street.

6) Head to trailer park, making sure you clear the entire path there.

7) Enter trailer park. Go straight until you run into a trailer and then slightly right. Clear only the zombies in your direct path to the blue interactive car. If any seem close, kill them, but don't stray far.

8) Push car and enter the enclosed area. Kill the walker in the middle
with the cowboy hat before he gets up. He is seated opposite from blue car, behind fridge. The keys will appear on the fridge next to his body or on the ground near him.

9) Immediately walk, don't run, back to the blue car you pushed. Turn right and then go straight towards the fence/wall until you see the entrance (now the exit) which is to the left. Keep heading towards the exit gate.
-------When you encounter your first walker, run. Try to ration your stamina to run past all walkers. Continue running to the gas station street, avoiding all walkers. It shouldn't be hard to out run them, which will cause them to turn back towards the trailer park.

10) Continue back towards the gas station. Clear any stray walkers and talk to Bedford.

11) Start the generator and go back to fuel pumps. Quickly check behind gas station, opposite from the generator, as walkers may spawn there. Often, there was at least one there after the generator started.

12) Once your area is clear again, pump gas. If on the ground, check around you every couple of seconds. It is possible (and recommended) to pump gas from the roof of the nearby car, to avoid walkers.

13) Once at 100%, follow the arrow and walk on the street towards tanker truck blockade. It's right in the middle of the street, between the two stores that you entered/exited from the street. Save your sprint unless a walker is nearby. Climb the ladder at the rear of the tanker truck.

14) On top of truck, you are temporarily safe. Move back and forth until almost every walker is at the rear of the truck. Then move to the front of the truck, drop off and sprint to the large green highlighted square. Hit X asap and the achievement should pop.


Don't use firearms unless you have silencers. Crossbow helps if you have it, but I did it with melee only.

Don't melee more than one zombie at a time. If more than one comes after you at once, jump in a pickup truck bed, use a car or building or anything available to try and separate them.

Be wary of sitting walkers. Preemptively hit or shoot them in the head to quickly kill the ones waiting to ambush you. The "sleeper" walkers seem to be the same every time you load a level.

Be careful of doorways. Sometimes the game spawns a walker outside of a door that was just cleared. They like to initiate grapple sequences that are likely to harm you.

If you take damage, "restart level" won't work. At least it didn't for me. I wasn't able to do this in the very first level either. Tried unsuccessfully several times.

Good luck!
