    [1.0] - Statement of Purpose -
    
    First off, this FAQ is an enormous ***Spoiler***.  I'm not sure why you'd be
    browsing FAQ's if you don't want spoilers, but I thought it fair to warn you
    in case you're like the people costing me Karma on the message board who
    enter topics that are clearly going to contain spoilers and then flagging
    every post in the thread for a TOS violation because they're too ignorant
    to deduce the contents of a thread based on it's title. =p So, here it is:
    
    WHOLE FAQ SPOILER WARNING, DANGER!
    
    
    Where will this walkthrough Get you?
    --
    
    If you follow this walkthrough to the letter, you will save 53 of the 54
    survivors, which is the most survivors possible.  You can NEVER EVER save
    all 54. This was by far the most challenging of the achievements for
    this game.
    
    This walkthrough is not a basic newbie walkthrough.  I am assuming you have
    at least some basic knowledge of the game, how to play, and the plot. This
    walkthrough is very very difficult in places. The behavior of the survivors
    while they're following you is going to make you want to break your TV and
    send your 360 sailing off a roof.
    
    This FAQ, if followed, will allow you to unlock several achievements which
    will be listed below.  
    
    I realize there are probably dozens of ways to do all
    of this.  This is simply the way I did it.  Please do not email me
    suggesting alternate orders, because there would be so many optional routes
    the FAQ would no longer make any sense.
    
    
    Why Ending B?
    --
    The reason for this, is that I was not sure how many you could save in one
    run, so I decided to save them all.  I knew already that ending A kills Ed,
    Brad, and Jessie at the very least.  53 is the absolute maximum.  Either
    Barnaby or Simone *MUST* die or be lost.  You basically trade Barnaby for
    Simone if you want the Transmissionary achievement.
    
    With the knowledge that you can save 53 max, it seems logical to me that it
    could be possible to get Saint *and* ending A without much more difficulty
    than the rest of this FAQ causes you.  I did not try this, and I likely will
    not try this any time soon because I'm not sure EXACTLY who counts as dead
    and when they count as dead.
    
    Should you decide to try for the A ending you will have to save almost
    everyone who can be saved. I have received many emails stating that you can 
    get the Saint achievement as well as Ending A in the same playthrough. You
    must save all but two mall survivors, then finish Overtime mode.  So
    basically Barnaby dies and you can miss one other.

    [1.1] - Possible Achievements -
    
    The list of Acheivements attainable by following this walkthrough to the
    letter are:

    Psycho Photo
    Psycho Collector
    Peace Keeper
    Punisher
    Tour Guide
    Portraiture
    Census Taker
    
    There are plenty of others you could get during the course of the walkthrough,
    but they will not neccessarily be detailed.
    
    
    
    ====================
    
    [2.0] - Survival Tips -
    
    The advice contained herein is purely subjective.  None of the stuff in this
    section is hard fact, it is merely the way I prefer to do things.  Some
    people might like things one way or another.  These are just to help you out
    if you're having trouble with your survivors.
    
    
    [2.1] - Frank's Weapons -
    
    Frank has many many weapons at his disposal, and unfortunately most of them
    are just as lethal to your friends as your enemies.  When escorting surivors
    you do not want to be using "Skull Crusher" weapons.  These are weapons that
    score one-hit kills on zombies by popping their heads with a meaty splash.
    very often one of your idiot survivors will stick their head in the way of
    a bowling ball, sledge hammer, barbell, or dumbell.  I'm sure there are more,
    but those are the weapons I crushed survivor skulls with myself.  One head
    shot from one of these weapons will KILL a survivor outright.
    
    Weapons with a wide path of destruction are also very dangerous for your
    survivors.  If you are NOT very good at keeping zombies away from your people
    you should stick to weapons that only hit one target.  I suggest the lead
    pipe, as it only hits one of anything at any given time.  Using any weapon
    that cuts a swath of enemies at a time such as the small chainsaws, swords,
    or machette, will cause massive collateral damage to your survivors if
    you are not extremely careful.
    
    I *HIGHLY* suggest keeping at least one Queen on you at all times.  If by
    some chance (and to save Pamela) a survivor gets caught in a swarm of zombies
    you need a way to clear the zombies without hacking your survivor to bits,
    and the queen is really the only way.  This walkthrough is very tight on time
    in some places.  You do not have time to hit the Security Room after every
    survivor you pick up and you'll need them to stay alive a long time in some
    cases and neither will you have time to stop for food a lot.
    
    If you are good at using waypoints and keeping a path clear for your people
    it is obviously okay to use whatever weapons you prefer.  I would suggest
    keeping a lead pipe and queen on you at all times for emergencies regardless.
    
    
    [2.2] - Arming your Survivors -
    
    Many of the survivors you escort can carry weapons.  What you want them to
    wield is entirely up to you and your style.  If as above you're good at
    using waypoints and clearing a path, I find the survivors are much better
    with guns.  Some people on the boards say they far prefer their people to
    carry hunting knives or other melee weapons.
    
    In my opinion, your survivors are going to do a LOT more damage carrying
    shotguns and sMG's than they will with knives and pipes.  You have to
    learn to stay out of their way, but when you use waypoints your survivors
    will defend that point much more effectively with guns.
    
    
    [2.3] - Moving with your Survivors -
    
    Moving survivors is probably the single most frustrating thing I've ever
    done on the XBOX 360.  They AI is horrible, and the "quirks" of some of
    the characters are infuriating.
    
    When a character gets stuck or does something idiotic like crawl on the
    ground or stop and cry for 10 minutes, hit them.  I use the jump kick
    or a lead pipe.  Being struck tends to cause the AI to rethink their path
    and actions and/or break out of their dumb behavior.  Survivors tend to
    get stuck on the potted plant outside Cam's Photo, and sometimes
    they'll get stuck inside the warehouse.  Other than that, obvious things
    like doors, staircases, and corners will sometimes cause them to hang up.
    
    In this guide I avoid Al Fresca Plaza at all costs when escorting anyone.
    The survivors tend to get stuck on all kinds of trees and furniture, and
    the place is packed hip to hip with zombies at all hours of the day.
    
    
    Waypoints > Follow Me
    
    I waypoint my people almost everywhere.  When they're following you they
    tend to jitter around and jostle for position, rarely getting to a point
    where they'll defend themselves.  When you set waypoints, your people
    will head to that point and then defend it.  Their defense is very
    effective when they have shotguns or SMGs.
    
    Waypoints also allow you to save stragglers.  Basically, you clear a path
    to a waypoint, set the waypoint, go back and kill any zombies that are
    between your survivors and the new waypoint... and repeat.
    
    Never waypoint too far away from yourself.  Outside a certain distance
    zombies will respawn.  If you walk too far from your survivors they will
    suddenly be drowning in zombies, and often there will be little chance to
    save them.  Be especially careful with the slow or timid survivors.
    
    
    
    ====================
    
    [3.0] - The Walkthrough -
    
    I could not think of a better way to organize this walkthrough than as a
    chronology of my movements through the mall. It's not going to look pretty,
    but the information is all there.  So let's dive right in.
    
    -Transmissions from Otis will be marked [OTX]->.  Something to remember
    about Otis's calls is that you can not be in the area he wants you to go
    to when it's time for him to make a call.  IE: Don't wait around in the
    security room waiting for a case.  Wait somewhere else or Otis won't call.
    -Survivors will be marked when you save them --->.
    -If you are going for any of the photography achievements, it is
    important that you photograph absolutely everyone you meet, Psychos and
    survivors alike.  If you miss any psychopath photos, you will not get
    the Psycho Collector if you stop the plot when I say stop.

    Leave security room again.

    [OTX]->8pm, Cheryl's Request call.
    Return to security room.
    Give Simone the handgun.
    Take pictures of cheryl.
    
    Done.
    
    You now have roughly 16 hours to wait around. You can wait on the chopper pad
    the whole time, or run around doing other achievements or just killing zombies
    for kicks.
    
    When noon hits you should be on the helipad. If you followed this guide, and
    you're there at noon, you will have 53 survivors.
    
    Over the course of this FAQ you could miss 3 survivors and still get Saint.
    If you find yourself struggling to meet certain time restrictions, skip
    one or two. Be very careful which you skip, if you skip any, as some are tied
    to other things.
    
    Should you decide to try for the A ending you will have to save almost
    everyone who can be saved. I have received many emails stating that you can 
    get the Saint achievement as well as Ending A in the same playthrough. You
    must save all but two mall survivors, then finish Overtime mode.  So
    basically Barnaby dies and you can miss one other.
