    Take a silenced pistol into Episode 4: Tokyo - Setting Sun.

    The starting area (before the bridge) has a tonne of zombies lying around. Move slowly to avoid waking them up, and move your reticle over the bodies - if the reticle turns red, pop them in the head with the silenced pistol (or other silenced weapon).

    Any zombie that isn't standing up counts for this Achievement - this includes zombies that are just slumped over.

    You should be able to do this in one or two runs.

    This achievement is a little miss leading.


    You are required to kill 20 lying zombies before they get up.

    However, you can kill zombies not just lying down they can be sat on floor or slouched over an object They must be killed with a silenced pistol/weapon Headshot to register or it will not count.

    Valid Zombies

    To identify the zombies you can kill before they are disturbed, your reticle will go from white to red on the zombies that can be killed as shown in below images:

    They can be found on most Chapters, here are just a few:

    Episode 1:
    New York - Chapter 1: Descent

    They can be found throughout this map in corridors and rooms, just before the lift section and opposite the lift exit area.

    Episode 2:
    Jerusalem - Chapter 2: Dead Sea Stroll

    Once you spawn in move to the left they can be found in the water and just before the metal set of stairs.

    As soon as you headshot with a silenced pistol (or alternative weapon if progression permits) your percentage bar will go up by 5% so keep an eye on it.

    As soon as your 20th kill, Pop achievement unlocked in game!


    Happy Hunting

    *Thanks once again to mga74 with assistance to confirm that body kills don’t register for some reason and headshots do as you wake and disturb them.*

    First off make sure you have a silenced weapon, preferably a primary, I found it easy on the 2nd mission on Tokyo called Final Call, so start that up and kill the zombies laying down in the beginning and do that for a minute to a minute and a half then back out and start the same mission up again. It does vary, for example 1 run I got a bull and a bunch of zombies standing, where the next run I got like 7 that were laying down in the first area. Do this and within a short amount of time the achievement is yours.
