    I've found that the best method to get this achievement is to simply do the Rolling Thunder kill event over and over. On average you should get 1000 infected killed every 2 minutes. At that rate it will only take you a couple hours to get all 53596 kills.

    Tan110688is there a counter anywhere so you know how many you already have?

    WoetteTo be exact, when you get 800-1000 kils in the event this does NOT relate to that same amount of kills being added in the infected civilians killed statistic. Of those 800 - 1000 you will probably have killed 200-250 army guys (they count as enemies aswell in the event) and these will NOT count as infected civilians!
    Still a very usefull guide and by far the fastest way of doing it. Its a big grind though for me, still need some 43k kills, yikes :-)

    Like it has been said before the best route to take is the "rolling thunder" event. However, if you don't want to spend 2+ hours mindlessly blowing things up, you can do what I did and tape/rubberband your left stick to the left and your right trigger down so that your tank just keeps autofiring and turning. I managed an average of more than 1000+ kills each time.

    Don't worry about hunters as your tank will be able to handle itself, all you have to do is hit the X button to restart every time the event ends and you can be lazy like me.

    Yes, the "Rolling Thunder" kill event is by far the best way to get infected kills the fastest. I average 1300 kills each time I do the 2 minute event, here a a few important tips on how to get more kills out of each time doing the event.

    When you start, pick a direction you want to drive. Being in the event causes large amounts of infected to be everywhere so you don't have to go in the direction of an infected zone.

    Having the tank moving fast is the key. The more ground you cover, the more infected you kill. Keep the tank going forward, its far faster than reverse.

    As you drive, keep the turret pointed back the entire time. You can't see what is in the direction that your tank is moving but you don't need to because you don't need to turn the whole tank and everything in front of you will get ran over or shot when you pass by it.

    With the turret pointed behind you as you drive, you can still hit everything on the road and the hunters can't reach you. Hold down both RB and RT so both weapons will be fired as fast as they can reload. When shooting behind you, the blast from the tank shooting will make you go faster instead of slowing you down.

    Last of all, not only hit the main road you are on with shells but put some down a few of the side streets as you pass them, this will give you a few extra hundred kills each time doing the event.

    The fastest way to get this achievement has been proved to be by grinding the "rolling thunder" kill event.

    I tried many different methods within the event to rack up the most kills, including driving straight in every direction, and driving backwards in every direction.

    However, I found that I could maximise my kills by heading slightly forward once the event starts, onto the crossroads, and then firing once or twice down each road. By the time you have shot down the fourth road, the infected will have respawned in the first road you shot down.

    Also, although the hunters will be constantly attacking your tank, and moving it quite a bit (annoying but doesn't actually affect you that much), try to avoid aiming at them, as it wastes a shot in which you could have killed 15+ normal infected.
