Question from AnatarX

Head Trauma / Hockey Mask / Melee Weapons?

For the achievement Head Trauma you have to use every melee weapon in the game. Once you've done this you unlock the hockey mask to wear. The question is, is there a list anywhere of all the melee weapons? Does melee weapon just mean anything you can physically swing at a zombie including chairs, signs and plantpots or is it easier and more specific than that? Anyone know, done it or have a list?

Shockwave962 asked for clarification:

well i try everything i can find for Example. use all available weapon on royal flush then go to the next area until you finish all of it. cuz what i did is i get the weapon and trow it at zombie then poof after 6hours of playing it i finally got it lol.

arellanojuan asked for clarification:

What list if any did you use Shockwave962? Because I have been up and down and still cannot unlock the achievement.

taternuts55 asked for clarification:

Can i have a link to that strat guide?

AnatarX provided additional details:

ok thanks. If this list is complete then I think all I've missed is the comedy trophy. I'll do that soon.

AnatarX provided additional details:

Ok I just used the comedy trophy and got the mask. It looks good but the fact that it doesnt have straps to hold it on is just stupid. You shave your head and the mask just sits on your face and without the staps it doesnt look right. I'm pretty sure the mask on the first game had straps.

mrstilwater asked for clarification:

Broom Handle and Long Stick? if its different than the Push Broom can someone tell me were to get them at?

AnatarX provided additional details:

For people asking about the broom handle, hit zombies with the push broom and eventually the brush head will break off giving you the broom handle weapon. I believe the sharp stick weapon can be found in the large planter to the left of the elevators in the hotel (where you find the undressed girl who makes you change to your underwear).

Remeber you only have to hit the zombie with a melee attack and not kill it.

There is a nice list in the strat guide with every item weapon and location, it even says if the weapon is ranged thrown firearm explosive or melee, really a great guide

xanrus answered:

Yes, anything that you can melee a zombie with. Which includes the 4-5 types of chairs, the signs, the 6-8 different plants, and of course crap like Cardboard Boxes and the Military Cases(which you can only get to spawn during Case 5-1 and beyond). Thankfully, combo weapons don't count.

I don't see the "Funny Painting" on that list, there. You may be missing that. I read somewhere that you needed it for the achievement, but I haven't confirmed it yet, as I'm still trying to get that one unlocked myself. If you're doing the "Father of the Year" thing with it, then from what I understand, you can just throw it at a zombie so you don't wreck the painting and make it unacceptable as a gift for Katey.

ZoopSoul answered:

Stand is at any of the casinos, the Velvet Bar connects to it. Should be a gold color, near where the casinos pay out.

Long Stick can be found in Fortune City Hotel.
(I'm not 100% sure where exactly they are, but you really shouldn't have too much trouble finding it in the FCH.
