"Freaks" are the special type of zombie in State of Decay, six variants of them exist.
These zombies lack arms and usually roam with a group of normal zombies, they can scream which will stun you and alert more zombies in the area,
The big fat zombie, is very hard to take down.
This one explodes into a yellow-y fog after you kill it.
This is the tall zombie with the crazy hair that is very fast.
SWAT Zombie
Has black riot gear on, usually you'll get assistance missions to kills these.
Army Zombie
Similar to the SWAT Zombie except it has military camouflage armor and no riot gear helmet, just a regular soldier one.
SWAT and Army Zombies do not count for this challenge, sorry for the misinformation!

I kind of doubt we'll get this challenge done and I don't know of any consistent method of killing Freaks, they're all over the place and you should run into them naturally but that wouldn't be the optimal method for grinding this out.
If anyone has a grind method, please let me know.

Like all community challenges all you need to do is kill one Freak in order to get credit towards the achievement and if we do manage to get reach the goal the achievement won't unlock till a couple days after the completion time.
