    PP Collector

    To obtain this achievement you must take a photo of all 100 PP stickers in the store, you should progress into the game until you open up the entire entrance plaza because if you don't it will be inaccessable.

    Warning: This achievement becomes unobtainable once you
    1) Progress into the storyline to case 2-3, do not fail before then.

    2) Kill Saun the Cult leader without getting captured and getting the 2 PP stickers in the room they take you to.

    I also recommend (if you have not hit level 50 yet) to grab the PP photo books that increase the amount of XP you get from taking pictures which are in paradise plaza. Here's where they are:

    -Camera 1: Contemporary Reading (+25% from photographs)
    -Camera 2: Photographer's Pride (+100% from photographs) (only at the end of KENT's Storyline)
    -Camera 3 is in the Entrance Plaza (+25% from photographs) (only once the entrance plaza is opened up)

    Another tip I can recommend is to either grab a bicycle (one can be found in the Entrance plaza) and a skateboard or 2 from the 2nd floor of paradise plaza to help move around more quickly, the skateboard can only hit about 3 zombies, but if you grab both books you can hit 20+ zombies until it breaks so unless you have the books don't use it to get past zombies.

    Here is a list of all locations (pulled from Howard Da Ninja's solution from the 360 version):

    Found a fantastic video on youtube of all locations done by youtube user Letsplay Community:

    Lastly make sure to finish this game (you can be at the heliport pad when the timer counts all the way down) if you want the reward for collecting all PP stickers, a lovely hockey mask!

    BPBPBPBPBPBPBPThere is a skateboard book in Wonderland Plaza that lets you jump with it and 3 book durability makes it last a lot longer too.

    Robster80I want to add that this does NOT have to be in one playthrough, because I tried it using the Walkthrough for this game and somehow I missed one PP Sticker and I let myself get killed and restarted the campaign and retraced my steps... soon as I took a picture of the treadmill in Flexin' (the one I actually had missed), the achievement popped.

    Catatonic NaliI did the majority of these in one playthrough after finishing zombie genocide with about 30 hours left to spare.

    You can get all the Entrance Plaza stickers after Brad opens the shutters in case 1-3, which I don't think ever times out but can be failed if Brad dies somewhere between the Food Court and the Entrance Plaza. If this happens you can still get into the Entrance Plaza through the maintenance tunnels but the stores will have the shutters down and you don't be able to get closer enough to some of the stickers.

    So I got about 95 of the stickers after doing genocide and then got the remaining handful on my next playthrough after immediately doing case 1-3.
    Achievement pops straight away so it definitely carries over between playthroughs but you likely have to reach an ending on a playthrough for the stickers to carry over. If you do 95, die and then start the next run I would guess that getting the last 5 won't pop the achievement.

    This can be done over multiple replays. It happened to me my 2nd time around going for this, i had 98 the first time and half way thru my 2nd go, it popped.

    Broon43Thanks for the guide, +1 for sure.

    I would add that players need to be prepared for being captured by the cultists. Frank is stripped of all weapons and health items, and you must fight about 20 of the yellow raincoat guys to get the passcode (where the 2 PP stickers are) and escape! It's best to try and go slowly to attract 1 or 2 of them at a time to take them out barehanded. Walk slowly into their "worship area" until you see a few of them follow you, then run back towards the crate in which you were brought to fight the cultists. There's a stepladder to use as a weapon, and if you're lucky, there may be a weapon or a health item in a cardboard box to help you along. But, you'll mostly have to go barehanded here. It's a slow process to take those guys out, but it is necessary to get this achievement which should only take a few minutes. Make sure to snap the PP stickers before leaving whilst only wearing your drawers.

    I, personally, saved these 2 for the last PP stickers to gain the achievement. Thanks again for the guide.
