As mentioned it's about getting it early on so you have plenty of rounds while it is still 1 hit kill. Not sure of exact round but I think around 12/13 it's no longer instant kill.

I got it yesterday with my bro when we were trying specifically for that, we literally got thompson, turned on the power, then got the bowie knife. Next get juggernog and I think a good place to stay is by the power, note they now come from behind and in front of you so play back to back and keep turning and checking both sides.

Learn to choose your target, get the stragglers. If a few are coming at once give them a few shots with the thompson to slow them down then knife the front guy and run back.

*Note it is optional to shout David Bowie everytime you knife a zombie, but I highly recommend it!*
