    The easiest way to do this is to find a friend, go to Server List -> Community -> Filters, type in the name of the Server: “Zavod” and choose ZavodTest (or any similar PvP server with close respawns).

    Then take anything in your hand (Pears work too! But it’s better to use something else, because items like pears get destroyed too soon).
    After that, beat your friend till he knocks out, and if you’re using a blunt item, beat him till he dies while he’s on the ground so it’ll count as a kill. Make sure your weapon doesn’t get destroyed while finishing him!

    On “ZavodTest” server we spawned 10 meters away from each other so the whole achievement took about 15 minutes.

    This achievement is fairly simple to boost with a friend: one of you finds a melee weapon and you meet up at a location to beat each other to death, trading off with the weapon after 15 kills.

    The important thing here to note is you have to actually KILL your partner, knocking them down into an incapacitated state does not count as a kill. Once they're down keep hitting them with the weapon until they breathe their last breath and die.

    This is not a guide but rather an introduction to a like-minded community. Playing DAYZ on official server, this achievement is very hard to obtain even with friends to boost, let alone playing solo. You don't always spawn with your friend and it is a nightmare to try to find each other.

    Currently, a community server is being operated temporary to help players get such achievements. The person running the server plans to have it up until 2 July 2020 (he may extend it). Search for the name: KawiNinjaRider7 under community server.

    Quick summary of what you need to do to join:
    - Have a discord account
    - Visit KawiNinjaRider7
    Or follow this link:
    - There are the instructions about how to join the server, rules, and tips

    Players will spawn at the same location as others, this helps a lot.
    If you are not there with your friend, you will eventually meet someone. Talk to them (press down button to talk) and they will most likely agree to help. They may even drop you a melee weapon or other materials to help you with this achievement or other achievements.

    Don't forget to return the favor and be nice to other people. No Player vs Player allowed in this server.
