The first challenge was by far the easiest of the ones I have played so far. You have to find the plane as fast as possible, all while battling hordes of the undead (and I mean HORDES).

For starters, play the storyline for a while, don't try to dive right into this. The controls and mechanics in this game take some getting used to, and this is definitely not the place to learn them.

Ok, all good? Alright, do a practice run first. You start in different locations each time you play the challenge (unless you die and hit retry), but the plane is always in the same spot and the map is always the same. So, since speed is fairly important for the S ranking, you're going to need to learn the map. It's not terribly hard to learn, but there are some blocked off paths that you should know about.

So, you know how to play and where to go? Great! One more thing. There are two spawn points: one on the west side with bow materials, and one on the east side with gun materials. The gun makes this MUCH easier, but if you're good with a bow, you can play it out if you get that one.

Beyond that, it's a simple achievement and the requirements aren't too harsh. Kill all the zombies from your spawn point to the destination, including the bosses... but no need to go out of your way. Avoid damage as much as possible and try to move as fast as possible - you don't have to speed-run it, but you don't want to screw around either. My final time was 14 minutes and change when I got the S ranking with a 91% accuracy, 160 kills, and 120'ish% damage taken.

Also note that this can be done in co-op mode. I personally found it easier to do solo, as both player's stats are combined for the final ranking. If you have a good partner, by all means, give it a shot.
