    Version: 1.01 | Updated: 12/22/08 | Search Guide | Bookmark Guide

    The purpose of this guide is to help people get the achievements. Most of them
    are self explanatory. Some may call my methods boosting, but that is their own
    opinion. Just to warn you this is my first guide, so it might be a little rusty
    If I am not clear enough, e-mail me at thedemonicmanaic@gmail.com. I w
    Table of Contents (For the lazy people who don't wanna scroll)
    101 Cremations (20)	Set 101 Infected on fire.
    Use Molotovís and gas cans as much possible and you will get this achievement in
    no time
    Akimbo Assassin (30)	Survive an entire campaign using only pistols.
    Pick your favorite level and don't use any weapons other than a pistol. This
    includes pipe bombs and Molotovís. I suggest you not even pick up any other
    weapons, incase you accidentally take a break. You can still shove and dual
    wield pistols
    All 4 Dead (30)	        Kill all four Survivors in one life while playing as
                            a Tank.
    The easy way to do this one:
    Have two controllers in a private No Mercy versus game, one on each side.
    The human player should get all of the bots in the red health, and then
    progress through the first level as usual. The infected player should leave
    the humans alone. The infected controller should turn into a tank when the
    humans get halfway through the alley. Then, as the tank, swing at one of
    the cars parked there and it should incap most, if not all of the humans.
    Take out the stragglers and voila!
    The hard way:
    Same as above, except in an Xbox live versus match. You won't have the
    benefit of hurt players, or knowing who will be the tank
    Back 2 Help (20)	Leave a safe room to save an incapped teammate and
                            bring them back safely.
    Play any level on easy. When you get to a safe house, make sure you kill
    everything around you, then vote to change the difficulty, preferably to
    expert. Have one person stand in the safe room and the other outside of it.
    The person inside the safe room should incap the one outside, then rush to
    revive him.
    Barf Bagged (20)	Cover four Survivors with Boomer bile at once.
    In a private versus match, with 2 controllers (one human and one
    infected) get to No Mercy level three and get everyone just outside of the
    saferoom. The infected player should die until it is a bloomer and then climb
    on the roofs of the buildings. Just puke over the side, and if you miss once,
    just back up until you can puke again.
    Big Drag (20)           Drag a Survivor 100 feet with your tongue.
    In a private versus game with two controllers, get to a wide open area. There
    the human player should kill all the zombies, and then all the bots. The
    infected player should be a smoker, and at maximum range tongue the human.
    Maximum range is the farthest you can be with the reticule still red
    Blind Luck (20)	        You or another Survivor take no damage after being

    have the human kill 2 of the bots. The smoker should then constrict the
    remaining bot and then the human.
