    Stokers are the very large zombies carrying shovels that look like hardened magma. Not to be confused with the fire elemental zombies that detonate when you kill them.

    After damaging the Stoker a certain amount, a weak spot will be revealed through a glowing yellowish-orange spot on either side of his chest or the top of his head. Shooting the glowing spot will cause him to drop to his knees and blow up from the weak spot.

    Later rounds are recommended for this, as they spawn very frequently the higher you are. I did it on Round 32. There were about 6 or 7 across the entire round.

    EDIT: WayzoftheRaven added that using the Kraken did not unlock the achievement, so it would be best to avoid weapons with explosive or area-of-effect damage.

    LordSmorcAs mentioned above the packed MOG-12 is really good for this. If you can get an upgraded kraken but it isn't needed. Shoot 1 shot with the kraken then switch to the MOG-12 and target the weak spot, rinse and repeat 2 more times. I got this done on round 36, I wasn't always getting 3 stokers until the mid 30s so I would fly through the rounds until you're getting 3 in a round most of the time

    BobbyChezIf you are having trouble getting multiple stokers to spawn in a round, they only spawn if there are zombie spawns left. So as soon as you see a stoker, focus on the stoker (hit him in both sides of his chest and the head until he drops to his knees). With that stoker gone another should spawn in. In other words, if you whittle down the "regular" zombies until they stop spawning, another stoker will not spawn either.

    To hit the weak points on the stoker, I used a double-packed KN-57 with FireBomb )was working on upgrading it). I killed two of the stokers via weak spots. However, since the zombies were out of spawns, to get the third stoker of the round to spawn, I used the "blow back" from my special weapon to clear some zombies off me. This forces a respawn of about 5-10 zombies (usually however many you clear) and luckily a stoker spawned in place of a regular zombie.

    Good luck!

    SHOTOKANKATANAThis is glitched. I killed like 6 in round 55 before it unlocked. Best strategy is to camp in the main stairwell at the bottom with a upgraded and pap lightning kraken, pap sg12 and pap helion. Starting from rnd 30 you'll get 3 stokers a rnd. From rnd 40 you'll get 4 or 5. Shoot once with the kraken and finish m with the sg12 shooting from the hip on chest height. They'll drop to their knees every time. If a blight father spawns use the helion, it takes only 3 direct hits to kill m. Hitting the blight father with the helion will kill any surrounding zombies too, it's such a small area, the blast radius kills them all.

    Highly recommended phd slider for this so you don't take damage from you're own rpg rounds. I used bandolier bandit, mule kick and stamina besides phd slider. Never really used elixers. Although temporal gift could be handy early on for double points.

    Coming down the bottom stairs hold left and camp next to the pillar. Zombies only come from one direction, very easy to survive here with this setup, I survived till round 92 without trouble. Died because I had to leave....

    If you have trouble getting this achievement try this method. You'll get so many stoker's it'll be hard to fail.

    To add to Racoonus' excellent guide on how to kill the stokers, a far more efficient way is to play on Rush mode as it is basically 1 continuous round. This way you can get this achievement without requiring high rounds rock

    Im Forever DopeUpdate. Right after posting I was able to obtain it in Rush Mode but I did have to kill about 5 or 6 again not sure if I missed on a few however it is still unlockable through Rush.

    Simone l8lRush mode patch?

    l BlackBrian7 lI think rush may only work for some people. Today, I killed at least 12 stokers by weak-point in rush and it didnt pop. I just played normal zombies solo and managed it straight away on round 40 once 3 stokers spawned (so I was killing them correctly in rush too).
