    Step by step guide


    - Follow the video guide to the tank which is located in the bunker. To get to the tank it will cost you approximately 5750 points ( i.e.750 points for the first door, 1000 for the second, 1250 for the first workshop door, 1500 for the door that leads outside to the excavation area and for the final door 1250 which leads to the church (bunker) and ultimately the tank.) Altogether you will need to accumulate around 8000 thousand points. This is to compensate for the M14 wall weapon, points for doors and points for the tank (When the tank cools down you need to pay 500 points for a second time).

    - The tank can be accessed only from the rear end and can be jumped on with the A button. However you must kill all the zombies near the tank as when they jump on they sprint really fast and will overwhelm you very easily.

    - Pay 500 points to use the tank and make sure to have a lot of ammo.

    - The tank will stop partway through the journey but you must not jump off and kill the zombies. After about 2 minutes at a stand still the vehicle will move again and continue the journey.

    - Your achievement will unlock after completing a full circuit of the map when the tank once again travels to the bunker. I would advise you stay on the tank until the achievement unlocks as my achievement had a delay that may affect whether you unlock the achievement at all.

    TIPS: If you are playing solo buy a large quantity of ammo for the journey as there will be a larger swarm of zombies than if you just stayed on foot. Also buy juggernaut as there are many obstacles barring your way to the tank such as tight corridors and the zombies themselves... obviouslysmile. Also if you don't have enough points dig up dig spots with the spade. This can give you that gun you need or a few additional points.

    If you go down and you get revived on the tank you will still get the achievement. Thanks to xMvP RAMPAGEX for the info.

    If you have any improvements leave them as a comment and i will update as necessary with mention to your gamertag. Overall it is one of the easier achievements on this map.

    Edit: Darth Maul FTS suggests using a zombie shield to hold on your back as it protects against zombies that may sneak around from behind and makes a noise if hit which creates and alert. I will also add that it is a one hit kill weapon.

    CHRISNINETY1Just in addition to this, it seems you can actually die outright and still get the achievement. I set off on the tank by myself and was downed during the cooling off period. One of my friends jumped on the tank to revive me, at which point I died. They then stayed on the tank for the rest of the journey and I (and only I) got the achievement. In essence, there was always someone on the tank and I never stepped off the tank, I don't know if that's supposed to happen or not but it figures if everyone gets on at the start then as long as someone is alive at the end then everyone should get the 'cheevo.

    TheOceanic815Something that may be worth adding:
    If you do this on a low round, I just did it on round 6 and 7, at the end of one round (for me it was 6) I left one zombie alive and ran him around in a circle on the tank while it cooled down. When I activated the tank again, I killed him and had a fairly simple ride to the end. It also helped that I had Monkey Bombs, but they aren't necessary if your weapons are good. Mine weren't all that great. Hope this helps!

    EarthboundXI've failed this twice is a row now, because of that armored flamethrower skeleton zombie. Once the tank is stopped, there's zero way to dodge his flamethrower, so I'm downed instantly.

    OK, third time's a charm. Made sure to get to round 8 first, so I could kill the armored zombie, so he wouldn't spawn while I was on the tank.

    You have to ride the tank in a complete circle! You can NOT get off the tank at any time. However, you can die if you stay on the tank! Here is a video guide for this achievement! Hope this helped!

    This is my own guide that I recently made for this achievement.

    > Make it to the Excavation Site by opening the door in the top floor of the Workshop.
    > Find the tank under the Church behind the Excavation Site.
    > Purchase a ride on the tank for 500 points.
    > The tank has two stops - the Church and the Tank Station; the tank will "cooldown" at the Tank Station for about two minutes.

    Please watch the video as I show you the easiest way and exactly how to get this achievement! If you have any questions, please ask, thanks :D
