    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.

    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.

    Vanstrom336Can you get this in co-op where one player gets one Stoker weakspot kill and the other player gets two Stoker weakspot kills? Or does the same person have to get the kills?

    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.

    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).

    I got this by playing on casual with 1 bot and after round 20 you'll start to get 3 stokers every round. I used the zweihander and the mog 12 pack a punched
