This is an easy, fool-proof solution even if you have a weak character and/or weak weapon (and absolutely no aim, like myself):

Go to the tunnel on the SW corner of the map.

Inside that tunnel that takes you to Moresby, there's a fire. Some infected will come running at you in flames.

If you got there in a vehicle, just park it inside the tunnel (not too far inside or you will travel to Moresby).

This is the easy part. You DON'T have to do the killing blow. Just kick the zombie once (and once only) and jump on top of you car and let it die. If you got there on foot, just avoid the zombie (after kicking him once) until it dies.

Rinse and repeat four more times.

I call it the "Hit-and-run-like-a-girl" solution.

NOTE: If you run out of zombies just reload your last checkpoint and go to the tunnel to get your missing zombie(s) avoiding confrontation with other zombies on the way.

NOTE 2: As noted by grasn reloaded, it seems that the higher the level, the longer it would take the fire to kill the zombie. So try this solution early in the game if possible.
Vandel Buster Haha. Brilliant.

Pr1nce0fDarknez Sounds easy going to try it today 1+ for you good sir

xenon ghost if you missed this area, you can also do something very similar to this at the end of the game on the roof top, as the infected come running out on fire, if you have a Katana or any sharp weapon you will slice of their heads. I did it last night on the roof top using this method.

LV 1 Blue Slime Not sure how you figured that out, but it works nonetheless. Nice O_o

mhitt46 I think it glitched on me. Because I joined a level 3's game, I am a level 35 at the moment. Instead of just slashing the infected once, i did it twice. But on the second swing I went through the infected and sliced another infected and got the last 2 kills i needed. Has that ever happened to anyone: hitting the same infected twice and on the second swing also hitting another infected?

grasn reloaded dude, im level 38, the zombies also, they take 5 dmg from fire, it would take 15 min that the fire kills them. you need to add that this is no solution for high levels.

LegendaryMarvel I'm assuming this solution would work equally as well for the get 15 kills in a row with the hammer without taking damage.

Poprin I appear to be having difficulty with this... am I missing something? Basically when I do it only 4 infected spawn. I've waited ages and no 5th spawn. So then I reload the checkpoint but that then sends me all the way back to the lifeguard station. How do you get all the way back without killing anything?!
Posted by Poprin on 27 Dec 11 at 02:33
Daft Scot I too could only get 4 Infected to spawn. I loaded the checkpoint and RAN all the way back to the tunnel from the lifeguard station. Yes, I am that insane. When I (eventually) got back, another Infected spawned and I was able to get the achievement. Perhaps Techland grew wise to this solution?

chanjamluke I kept trying this method, but kept messing up and sometimes they just didn't spawn, ended up getting it during the Hotel chapter, in the pool on a replay. +1 nonetheless.
Posted by chanjamluke on 04 Mar 12 at 21:09
SweetLouDiamond yeah, i only get 4 to spawn for me as well. some weird patched thing perhaps?
Posted by SweetLouDiamond on 05 Mar 12 at 12:57
BonnieTheBigVig As above, I only got 4 to spawn. I didnt reload checkpoint. i got in a car (walking or running will also work) and drove about 50 metres back up the road and got a save icon. straight away return to the spawn point and got the last one.
Posted by BonnieTheBigVig on 31 Mar 12 at 07:36
Beez 808 As BonnieTheBigVig suggested, I also only got 4. I drove up just past the grassy overpass about 75m up the hill, turned around and came back. As soon as I got back #5 spawned.
Great solution. +1!

PunchingCoder Excellent!

MC0REBE If you do it with a co-op partner, you can kill those infected coming out of the tunnel and fast travel to Lighthouse. If you let your partner drive, those kills will not reset the counter. Might be worth to add this in

Dabigamc I killed 3 on fire, then fucked up . It spawned another 4 but not a 5th. I got my last at the nearby gas station, seem to spawn there.
Posted by Dabigamc on 18 Sep 13 at 19:51
HASANYBODYGOT Only four seemed to come out the fire every time I tried. I got my first at the Petrol Station then moved to the tunnel.

x RAISER x I wasn't getting the fifth zombie to spawn and running up the hill didn't work. So from inside the tunnel turn around and run straight till you reach the water, then run back to the tunnel where it decided to then spawn 4 more for a total of 8. Also standing down the road past the ladder to the power switch and using a bladed weapon, the mere force of them running towards you will decapitate them for an instant kill.

neeker75 Genius.
Posted by neeker75 on 11 Feb 14 at 12:43
Lt Davo I got the first four, got in my truck, drove down the road a little ways, drove back, and got the fifth. I had a nice, fully upgraded weapon and got four of them clean, only needing the fire to finish one of them. The nice thing about this solution is that the infected run at you one at a time, with a nice spacing between them. If everything goes right, it only takes five minutes, and that includes the drive to the tunnel.

zeno2k Done at 31th level... so very far in the game.
I've not reloaded the checkpoint: just fast travel to another location and then travel back to the tunnel.
I wasn't unable to kill with one shot one of these zombie, but due the fire it died after a second and count me as a single shot...
Posted by zeno2k on 07 Mar 14 at 08:25
got it 1st try,after goin nuts when trying to get it legit.
U should add that u only need to go on to the end of the tunnel and re-enter from the other side if no more burning zombies spawn,instead of reloading. ( did that 3 times)
I was level 44 and burners died real quick after getting kicked ,only the 3 non-burning guys that spawned randomly in between sucked,guess if u try to kill em the counter resets

Beam147 thumbs up. 4 spawned, I then went thru the tunnel to the town came back and my 5th one spawned. Thank you

varkylfus Good stuff. One kick and jumped up on the truck til each one died. Four spawned and then reloaded last checkpoint. Not far to run back. Level 21 at the time.
