Easily done with the daggers and Alucard at the beginning of the game.

Stand in one place and throw them at zombies, 1 dagger for each zombie and the achievement will pop up.

Daggers can be found on one of the candles on the wall, just break the candle and they should appear.

NOTE: After further realization, the "Cube of Zoe" relic is required for Daggers to spawn out of the candles. The Relic can be found in the first large area, past the cutscene with death. It looks like a cube that's floating and shimmering.
IzzidoreThis may sound like a stupid question, but do i start the game with daggers? If yes how do i use them?

imaidiot19where do you find daggers? I press up + attack and he just swings his sword? What am I missing?

Chronic KillerHow did you win this offline. Whenever I try and play Castlevania SotN while not signed in xbox live, it won't let me play.

Wildboy WileyI was connected to Xbox live when I got on the game, I got disconnected while on the pause screen (and could not reconnect due to internet issues), and then just played while disconnected.

imaidiot19@Chronik Killa X, it seems you purchased the game on a different xbox, so that is why you have to be online. You can transfer your license to your new xbox and play offline, or only play online.

BigFriendlyGeekLike the first commenter, I don't have any daggers when I start the game. Are they something you pick up later in the game? At the moment I press UP+X and all it does is swing his sword.

Wildboy WileyThey are in one of the candle things on the wall where all the zombies are....

BigFriendlyGeekAha! That's probably where I'm going wrong. Thanks very much! Will try that tonight. :)

Mr GranstaffI'm not having any daggers spawn whenever I hit the candles. I've hit them all several times and nothing is being generated. Did I overlook something?

Wildboy WileyI believe you need to obtain the cube of zoe in the first area after the cutscene with death. It's a relic that allows items to materialize...I was also having this problem when I replayed through the game, will update the solution to reflect this.

Mr GranstaffThank you for the update. I did end up unlocking the achievement, but I don't recall picking up a relic. I actually moved a bit further into the story and smacked torches to get the daggers to spawn. For whatever reason, smacking candles never generated daggers. After grabbing enough daggers, I backtracked to the zombies and got the achievement easily from there.

Ravengothjust one thing i would like to add,clear out your cache as i think this glitches out the achievement from popping.i was getting 30 plus hits in a row with no joy,but with the clearout i got it straight off from the restart.hope this saves other players hours of hair pulling frustration

spookyhurstRavengoth, thank you so much! I couldn't get this to pop until I cleared the cache.

SincereSeeker6Wow i am having way too tough of a time doing this. Is the specified location before the cube of zoe or after? I keep trying to go back and it is really hard getting through wherewolves with the short sword (4 hits per wolf instead of 1)
