    In this video I will be getting Sensational Work! achievement, for getting a S ran on any difficulty. Sprinter achievement for beating the story in under 2 hours. Minimalist for completing the game without opening the item box. Lastly I Might Need These Later! achievement for completing the game using 1 or fewer recovery items.

    In the video I will be running through the story as fast as I can to get these achievements quick. If you follow what I do you should ave no problem getting all the achievements.

    VirusTk GaMBitI can't watch the video anymore. I need to have a G Suite account. What's that?

    You'll almost certainly get this on the same run you get an S rank on.

    Two videos below, the first has an accompanying timestamp. The first video is on hardcore, but utilizes the infinite rocket launcher and coins. The second one is on assisted, but It's done without any shop items. Both runs take ~1:10:00

    An S rank completion requires you to complete it in 2:30:00 or less. These runs give you almost an hour and a half of wiggle room. The other factor is to save 5 times or less. Since auto save is active on these difficulties, you actually don't have to save at all.

    Run 2 Introduction - 1:12:10
    Sprinter, Sensational Work!, Survivor, Veteran - 1:12:57-2:21:35

    The best way to do this is to obtain the bazooka with unlimited ammo, allowing you to sprint through the game without stopping much to kill any ennemies in front of you.

    The bazooka costs 62.000+ points, but they can be easily farmed with the in-game missions like "kill X enemies with X weapon"

    Good to know: the zombies behind the barriers not involved in an event won't harm you, will die with one bullet, and count towards the amount of zombies killed.

    Best place to farm assault rifle kills : Save just before blowing the shower room in Racoon Police Station with Carlos. When you blow the wall, 9 zombies and 1 hunter wait behind. Kill them, reload your save, etc....

    Best place to farm grenade launcher kills: Just after the Racoon Police station, when you regain control of Jill, get the grenades in the safe room then save immediatly. Just after that you have 2 group of 3 zombies. Kill them, reload your save, etc...

    Many would recommend to do it during the "hold the fort" battle at the end of Carlos' part in the hospital, but it's quite long and I felt that ammo was an issue. I felt it was faster and more efficient to kill and reload at the 2 save points below.

    IMPORTANT: if you continue, or reload your save, the time spent in-between will be counted! (loading or continue, if you die after 2 minutes: the next continue will have 2 minutes of playtime added!)
    If you aim for an S rank especially in Hardcore or Inferno, don't forget to quit then reload!

    The Pat KellyWhen playing as Carlos in the hospital, there's the part where you defend Jill. After the shutters close the windows, an auto save checkpoint happens and the only entrance is the door. On assisted, nearly 100 zombies will come out of it before it stops spawning zombies. Reload the auto save when you run out of ammo, or when you run out of zombies. Rinse, repeat until you get those points for the AR and overall enemy kills.
