I recommend a high level for this achievement, as you will need more skill moves and especially attack power, although all you really need is the double lariat.
It would sound easier to get this in the maintenance tunnels, but a lot of food would be needed, so don't go there.

I did this in Paradise Plaza; stocking up on OJ at Columbian Roastmasters.
When you do a double lariat, make sure you have your hands free (press up on the D-Pad), otherwise you'll be throwing food all over the place.

If you throw a zombie into other zombies, the thrown zombie will be counted as a weapon; not a barehanded kill, so if you do this you will need to kill some more after 1,000.

JayBitsYes, because you're using your hands to kill the zombie.
I believe the Knee Drop counts towards this achievement as well, despite it not being with your hands ;)

KamhiX96it probably goes without saying, but it might be worth noting that it's easier to do in the day time, since a double lariat is a one hit kill then.

JLogan27I do not believe the knee drop or jump kick count towards the achieve. I started a new game and killed 1000+ zombies without ever picking up a weapon and I do not have the achieve (I am around 1075-1100 now). I kicked and knee dropped a bunch so I am thinking they didn't count.

JLogan27I stand only took about 6-10 more kills and it popped. Not sure what I did to require the extra kills but knee drops and jump kicks will count.

Godfa7h3rUnlike some other achievements, this has to be done on one game play through. Any barehanded kills you may have got on other play through or game modes will not count towards the 1000 total.

I started a new 72hr game, went to the supermarket to stock up OJ, and went to town on some zombies. It unlocked around 1,100 kills because I know I had 40 or 50 weapon kills. I used double lariat for the majority of kills,

Phoenix C64after getting zombie genocide i had quite some time left before the chopper came, so i did a few lesser chievos, like this one.
i went to paradise plaza to stock up on nectar, then i entered the service tunnel (plenty of zombies there) and double lariat all the way. if i needed to drink i just used a queen then a nectar.
