This achievement is awarded for getting to round 21 in under 32 minutes. This is easiest to do in solo.

There is a bit of luck involved with this achievement but it is still doable even if you get fairly unlucky with drops or the box. If at any time you want to check what time you are at just hit the back button and the clock will show you.

To start off I'd recommend immediately knifing zombies as soon as the match starts to get the rounds going as fast as possible and not worry about points. Try to stay in the first room as long as you can (I'd say until round 6 or so is good) using the RK5 to try and get the early rounds done quickly. Once you feel you need to go, make your way out off spawn, through the department store and into the infirmary.

Make sure you grab the shield parts and turn on the power as you move through the department store, infirmary and into the Armory. If you do not know where these can be found then I'd recommend looking them up online somewhere.

The armory is where we will be spending the majority of the time. As soon as you enter the supply depot side coming from the power room, head all the way up the stairs towards the bridge at the top. You can sit in the corner at the top here and and kill zombies as they come at you from the window on the side and the stairs. Feel free to move around this area as well as it can get pretty cluttered in the later rounds.

I'd recommend buying the argus on the other side of the bridge in the infirmary once you get 1100 points then spinning the box to get better weapons. Make sure you also definitely have Juggernog and Quick Revive once you get the points then the last two perks are up to you. Personally I like getting Double Tap (which can be found in the Tank Factory, and Speed Cola (Located in the end of the supply depot).

Just setup in the Armory and Infirmary area until round 21 and you should hopefully get to round 21 in under 32 minutes.

Some useful tips:
- When the manglers or valkyrie drones start spawning, I'd recommend moving over to the Infirmary area where it is more spacious and you can freely move.
- Box guns can make this infinitely easier so I'd recommend you try spinning for either of the Ray guns or a high damage weapon like the Drakon, which is a 1 shot headshot up to round 20.
-If you feel like you are even close to getting overran just buy the bridge and train the zombies around in the Infirmary. Going down and having to rebuy perks is a huge waste of time so try not to.

If you would like a video of the whole process PowerPyx has a great video of the whole 21 rounds. All credit goes to him.

If you have any questions or recommendations to make the solution better please comment them. Thanks and happy hunting!

BabyishDuck It's got to be under 32:00 I did it in 27:25 by just camping in the spawn room.

axelnator94 A friend and myself did it in under 30 min but no achievement! Why??

What is a Win Its been known to be glitchy on the PS4 when it first released as well. Not a lot you can do about it unfortunately since treyarch doesn't want to fix anything.

ShadyShall For those who did this and the achievement didn't pop:

My buddy and i just got this achievement on our second attempt. In our first attempt, we made it to round 21 in under 31 minutes... but no achievement popped.

on our second run, we picked up the pace a little more. i cannot verify that this (what follows) is the solution to the "glitch", but in our case it proved to mean something:

you must pass all time trials along the way to round 20!!

in our first game, we didn't hit any time trials... in the second game, we hit them all along the way and then seconds after 'time attack round 20 complete' flashed, the achievement popped.

this means you needs to set a pace and keep it. the time attack trials are:
complete round 5 in under 6 minutes (i think)
complete round 10 in under 13 minutes (i know)
complete round 15 in under 24 minutes (i know).

if your achievement did not pop - did you notice the time attack trials popping up as you got them? they award you XP and you'd know if they were being hit along the way. if not, i suggest trying again and hitting those time markers.

again, i don't know if this is the solution, but i do know on the first game we didn't hit any, but on the second game we hit them all and the achievement popped.

hope this helps. good luck!

South Park TFBW Really difficult achievement. Finally got it with 4 seconds to spare.

Bongo Anyone want to actually say what you have to do for it to unlock? My friends and I have done this multiple times and never once have we seen anything pop up saying we completed a time trial and none of us have gotten the achievement. We've done ranked and unranked. These pop ups that people claim to appear after each of rounds 5,10,15,20 are seemingly non existent. Would like an answer if anyone has one....
