    This was momentarily glitched, or it was at least visually. It retroactively awarded it to people that met the conditions before it started tracking properly. This should not be an issue to anyone going forward.

    I used an old solution from two years ago by MMMDI.
    This can be done with a fresh file of Lifeline mode.
    Clear the initial zombies, get to the area where the objective tells you to. Don't actually go to the base though, drive past it (or go to the base and defend it so you can get the weapons, you may want them) and continue on the overpass route until you come upon an exit with a ramp down the right and drive down the road to the right. You'll see a fence area you should be able to fit your car through. Zombies will continuously spawn, so just drive around. When your car starts to flame, you can exit the area and go find another vehicle, a bunch should be scattered on the road right outside the fence area. Same thing if zombies stop spawning, drive out of the area and then come back.

    Watch out for two of the special zombies called Freaks. The really big fat one that you can't run over are called Juggernauts and the yellow naked ones that explode into poison gas are called Bloaters. As for Juggernauts it's obvious why they're an issue, you can't run them over just like the weaker zombies and they also do a ton of damage to your vehicle if you ram them or they attack you. So get your vehicle a safe distance away and then shoot him.
    Bloaters you don't really have to avoid, if you happen to hit one, just jump out of your vehicle and quickly use your medicine if you get low on health. Just something to be aware of.

    Using the above method you can clear the 500 kills in about 20 minutes.

    You can also try this method in the video below posted in Klaash's solution from two years ago.


    Feel free to read either solution that was posted two years ago:

    mcnichojOnce it says "X days to go" on this site then it's ready to be earned. I've probably earned half of the Challenges before the actual month in where they were supposed to be earned.
    Further proof we can just look at the same Challenge from a year ago:
    State of Decay: Year-OneMake it Rain 2017The Make it Rain 2017 challenge in State of Decay: Year-OneSplash 500 zombies with your car in April.

    I was the first earner followed by three other people (such as BBIAJ above) that also earned it on March 31st of that year.

    I've already edited the solution to reflect that now I've tried to get progress in April. I also tried different consoles to see if that would do anything, it did not.

    BBIAJStill not tracking, despite March's event now being over.

    BBIAJLooks like it's poppable now.

    I spent about 30 mins doing as suggested in the guide for the challenge, it still wasn't being tracked, so I played something else, went back to SoD, and the challenge unlocked as the game was booting up.

    Cheers mcnichoj!

    Spirochaetestill bugged here. more info needed from y'all:

    1) did the tracker ever move past 0%

    2) did it pop in-game or only upon restarting it

    3) did you do all 500 in 1 game before exiting

    MMMDINot having any luck either. Tried restarting the game and even did a hard restart on my console. No dice and still (at least visually) 0% progress.

    mcnichojNever got any progress for several hours. Noticed I had it already unlocked first thing turning my system on the next day.

    BBIAJ1) did the tracker ever move past 0%

    No, it remained at 0% the entire time.


    2) did it pop in-game or only upon restarting it

    Only upon restarting the game.


    3) did you do all 500 in 1 game before exiting

    No, I did several mini-runs to see if the tracker would move, then one 30 minute sesh just to be sure. Played another game, went back to SoD, and it popped as the game was booting up.

    Mr FiddlerPretty good method though I had two hard crashes to the dashboard down there. Not sure if the area is just unstable or if it's an Xbox One X thing...
