    HAVEYOUS33NCHEF has a great guide if you have the Megaman Blaster and make it past 72 hours mode in the story.... BUT to hit level 50 on your first playthrough the soonest possible time this is the guide you should use.

    Once you enter the first area outside the security room (Paradise plaza) head right to a store with some bookcases (can look at map and look for store called Bachman's Bookporium) and grab the book Horror Novel 1 which will increase your PP bonus from killing zombies by 25%.

    Now play through the first main story mission and get into the Entrance Plaza go to the 2nd floor right side facing the Mall main entrance to a book store called The Sinister Read and grab the pp book Horror Novel 2 which will increase you PP bonus from killing zombies by 25%.

    With these 2 books head outside towards the middle point of North Plaza at Wonderland Plaza (shows a car symbol on the map) and grab the red sports car, you will want to head into the garage and start killing zombies. Using this method and having these 2 books will net you 750 exp for every 50 kills and 30,000 Exp for every 1,000 kills (45,000 exp per 1,000 kills with the 50 kill bonus's). If done correctly you can kill 1,000- 1,300 zombies every 5 minutes.

    You need a total of 5,000,000 PP but using this method you will get this achievement much quicker than you think. Also while doing this method you will obtain the Mega Man Blaster once you finish the playthrough with 53,594 zombie kills.

    For an more in depth look at the pattern of killing the zombies check out the Zombie Genocider guides:

    Dead RisingZombie GenociderThe Zombie Genocider achievement in Dead Rising worth 43 pointsDefeat at least 53,594 zombies.


    You will also obtain these achievements along the way:
    Dead RisingZombie HunterThe Zombie Hunter achievement in Dead Rising worth 30 pointsDefeat at least 1,000 zombies.

    Dead RisingZombie KillerThe Zombie Killer achievement in Dead Rising worth 39 pointsDefeat at least 10,000 zombies.


    Note: You will not get the achievement at 53,594 kills but keep doing the method after the achievement until you hit level 50.

    TheBongoFuryThe best route for the car is to drive to the left once you enter the garage. At the end of the road is a meat packing plant and a meat car parked that you can drive for a bit before riding outside to get a new sports car. Also: Hit as many zombies riding those big gas cannisters. Sometimes you do massive damage, killing several hundred zombies at one time.
