To do these, you can use the Case Select at the main menu after completing the campaign. However, beaware, that once you do a new game, the case select is locked (such as BLack Friday playthru), and after completing the game again, the case select gets locked in that difficulty. And since most of these trials are easier in normal, I would recommend completing as many of the harder trials before going on to your black friday playthrough.

Here are a few of the harder trials I struggled with. Hope this helps. headspin

The Food Chain – Kill 10 evolved enemies with the Fish Launcher.

At the end of case 5, you will travel to the point of no return in the sewers. Make sure you have SEVERAL Fish Launchers on your person since there are many evolved here. If you run out, reload checkpoint (before going too far and do it again. This is a great place to do this since there are few other zombies.

Also possible in Case 3 when you go into the sewers for the first time. This is where you encounter the evolved zombie for the first time, and there is only one. Kill it with the fish, and QUICKLY reload checkpoint since there will be a spawn immediately afterwards with two more. I found fighting one at a time easier. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A FISH LAUNCHER BEFORE entering the sewers.

You can also do

Evo Hunter I-IV – Kill 10/25/50/100 evolved zombies if you haven't enough (however a 100% will likely complete this goal in normal play)

DON’T Give Him the Stick! – Kill 10 human enemies with Hockey Sticks.

Case 1. After you make it through the managers office in the hotel, you will get a check point. Run all the way through the mall, towards the objective but DO NOT go through the doors, instead turn right towards the movie plex (the place you fight the end boss) and near a snow man you will find a hockey stick. Pick it up, and run back and assuming you did not kill any of the human along the way, you can get at least 5-6 human kills. I your melee strength is not enough, you may need a reload or 3. However, a trick to get the kill is freeze the enemy (with the pengiun mask (can be got right at the first foodcourt fight from the food stalls)) and then a few hits with the hockey stick.

Launcher Combo Creator – Create 15 Combo Weapons of the Launcher category

Case one. After the hotel, pick up a snow globe in the managers office, then go through and a check point will be created. Then run into the first store on the left - a clothing store and on the desk will be a Tshirt launcher. Combo it up. And then reload your check point.

Hammer Time – Kill 30 fresh zombies with the Acid Maul.
Stop All the Downloadin’ – Kill 30 fresh zombies with a Keyboard.

Best Spot! CASE 1. BEFORE YOU go to the first safe house, make sure to take a few keyboards. When you get into the safehouse, a checkpoint will be created. (the suntanning store in the pirateboat area, and one store between that area and the mini cart area have keyboards) When you leave the safe house to go to the medievel area, you will hit a point where 5 fresh zombies attack you. Kill them with your keyboard (or acid maul if you need that) BUT DO NOT go past point. Kill them, and then reload checkpoint to farm the kills. Easy way - freeze them before using the keyboard ensures killing them all with keyboards! (use penguin hat - item constructed in first food courts food stalls)

Tribute I, II, III – Take a Capcom Tribute photo of ANY QUALITY/A-RANK/S-RANK

CASE 1 - after leaving the managers office, you will come to the mini cart track. THere is a game store there with 3 arcade games. Kill everything around you, and then get a picture of the 3 machines. YOU NEED to make sure they are the focus in the picture but you need a bit of dead bodies around it to make it a S rank. if the dead bodies take up too much of the picture it will not give you Tribute, but rather brutality or something else. It works. I did them here.

Lemmings – Catch at least 3 zombies falling in one photo.

I got this one without planning. Used a grenade in a group of zombies and took a picture just after it exploded.

Feeding Frenzy – Get a photo of 3 fresh zombies feasting.

End of Case 4. Got this when I went to fight Fortura. Before fighting her you enter a room for an investigation and there are a lot of fresh zombies eating here. Try to get 3 in a picture. Use LT to sneak into a good position to take the picture. If it doesn't work and you alert them, RELOAD!

Fresh Horde – Get a photo of a pack of 10 fresh zombies.

Case 4 - At the right side of the map, there is a little area with a gas station and a construction site. Before entering the construction site, go to the far right and drop down into the site (assuming you have enough health). This should alert more fresh zombies at once, rather than simply running down the left road entrance. Then, take as many pictures and you should eventually get it since there are several fresh zombies here. If you don't after a few minutes, reload and try again - since fresh zombies seem to despawn after a few minutes. Try not to kill anything while you are doing this.

Man’s Inhumanity to Man – Get an A-rank photo of soldiers and survivors fighting.

CASE 3 (May even be possible in Case 2) - I tried this twice and it seemed repeatible. After leaving the old town safe house, turn right and at the end of the street there seems to be a reliable spawn of soldiers. Kill off the enemies they are fighting and have the soldiers chase you around the back of the city hall. Down the street there is a high probability to have a save the survivor with insane survivors guarding the location. Don't engage. Run through them so the two groups merge. Then RUN AWAY and hide. When they loose interest in you they will start fighting. Then you can take a picture of them fighting. It seems if an enemy is engaged with you, taking a picture of the other soldiers and survivors doesn't seem to credit you with the picture. To get an A, you need several (5-6) humans fighting, with a few zombies or body parts in the picture. Keep trying. The first time i tried this i kept getting a lower quality picture and then they killed eachother. I was able to repeat the exact same method where i finally got the A Rank picture.
