To get an S rank on a district, you need to earn a certain amount of points before the end of all 5 rounds. If you're using some of the later character costumes, it won't be hard at all to rack up huge points and get S ranks easily. I found the best characters for S Ranks were BB Hood, Sigma and Regina.

In fact, I got all of my S ranks by playing solo on my first try (except the first district). Here are some general tips to rack up huge points, as well as approximately how many you'll need for the S Rank on each level.

I found that on rounds where you needed to destroy certain objects (Big Bombs, Generators, etc.), BB Hood was the best character to use. His Special will wipe out literally any object in the way and crank out like 50-60k points per object. On levels where there were bosses, BB Hoods Y button attack is also extremely effective, as it not only stuns the boss, but also deals out very good damage, even without the POW upgrade.

So, in terms of how many points you need, I found this for the levels (again, these are just approximations, so it could be more or less).

Ingleton ~741k
Central City ~1.09 million
Sunset Hills ~1.01 million
South Almuda ~ 2.09 million

Again, these numbers aren't set in stone, that's just around what I got for points when I S ranked those levels.

User Deranged Asylum was kind enough to provide videos of himself completing these districts with S Ranks so everyone can have a kind of idea of what's needed to get S Ranks. Much thanks!

Deranged Asylum I think 700,000 or more is required for Ingleton I got an S Rank with 714,000

marksman3698 Sunset hill is over 1.3 million I think it's 1.4 or 1.5 got to 1.3 and only A rank

Deranged Asylum I got 900k on Sunset and got an S Rank. Retried Ingleton and got an S Rank with under 700k

MarioToo I got an S on Ingleton solo and it didn't count.

Ibanez V7 So what's the best way to get points? Complete rounds quickly or use the remaining time to kill as many zombies as possible?
Posted by Ibanez V7 on 13 Jun 14 at 04:02
prowlerdante @MarioToo - That happened to me as well, I had to get more points on a second run and it counted for me.

@Ibanez V7 - I find the best way to get points fast is to blasting through the levels as fast as I can, and if there's any downtime go for the kachichi powerups (5k points each) as well as the special zombies (sword and shield) or the bikers if there are any nearby.

Deranged Asylum Completing objectives building up combos and good use of your special abilities all help towards obtaining an S Rank and I wouldnt waste too much time grabbing coins as I dont think they add to your final score just give you lots of Zenny for revives and costumes. Seems scores vary I got 680,000 on Ingleton but I think thats the minimum you can get away with.

iLag1337 I got S rank on both solo and coop (2 players) on Ingleton and still can't unlock this one. Bummer.
Posted by iLag1337 on 15 Jun 14 at 07:29
iLag1337 OK, I tried it again for the third time, using BB Hood, and I got it to unlock! You need more than 700K S rank to get it, I don't think anything below 700K will count even though it's counted as S.
Posted by iLag1337 on 15 Jun 14 at 08:09
prowlerdante Yeah sometimes it ranges from what I've noticed, like with Ingleton, it said I had S Rank but didn't count until I did it again and cleared 700k.

Prometheus Nyx I think it takes your suit into the equation with basic Annie I got ingleton s ranked with 695k.

JORAX Well that is annoying... just got an S rank on the 3rd area and it didn't pop the achievement or unlock the costume it was supposed to. Was playing 4 player co-op, which hasn't been a problem with other areas...

rangersfan414 Yeah I've cleared Ingleton with an S rank numerous times, but it won't give me credit, so I have 4 glitched achievements now!

Wise Cognizant Do I need to get s rating in one setting or could be done separately? i am sure i got s rank on each but no achievement
Posted by Wise Cognizant on 01 Dec 14 at 19:02
prowlerdante I don`t believe it needs to be one sitting, but it is buggy for sure.

CR TROOPER 014 2Players over 800k A rank, guess no one seems to know the S rank requirements
Posted by CR TROOPER 014 on 13 Apr 15 at 22:40
CR TROOPER 014 This one is glitchy I just did it in co-op got S rank and no achievement its does not register since I still cannot unlock RUY costume but I swear I saw the S rank come up. Fucking game!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

VirusTk GaMBit I don't know why you have only 18 positive votes. This is a superb solution! Thank you very much!

UltimateHero128 Hm...I cleared Ingleton with another player scoring over 800k and only got an A Rank.
