Oh, it's possible. You can't get the achievement Transmissionary without doing every single side quest.

I found the best way was to use the truck and just go down to the turn in the tunnel, then reverse. The mass o' zombies should have respawned. Repeat. Truck breaks>Enter meat processing area>Go back out>Repeat.

The truck also makes a great weapon against the convicts (seriously, I rammed the side of their vehicle and managed to run over one of them that way XD)

That'll be a great help. I thank you, master Amnesiasoft.
Or something to that effect. Hell, I don't know.

Finally beat the guy in the gun shop. I had to hop behind the counter, pick up whatever I could, ended up with a sniper rifle, hid behind the display, peeking out to get a couple shots.

He died more quickly when I shot him with the fire extinguisher.

I saved that guy by aiming the extinguisher at his butt, afterwards he can give you molotovs in the security room

The easiest way to kill the special forces guys in overtime is to use disembowal on them, their guts don't come out though :evil:

have you tried mixing things to make smoothies. one of them turns your spit into bullets.

I've had zombait and quickstep. Also, special forces guys? Anyone want to explain that?

Played it for a little at my brother-in-law's place. Why do the weapons vanish? I mean, I can understand the gun "vanishing" when you run out of ammo as you just chuck it to the side because it's worthless. But the lead pipe? The hell?

And why the hell is a soccer ball more effective than a lead pipe? The hell kind of crazy logic is that?!

....


I now lust for the game, though. After playing for an hour. God-damnit.

I was just going to say the soccer ball is my favorite weapon.

The zombie killing is awesome though. Good times.

Two things I hate about this game:
1) You get extra points for pictures of zombie titties.

2) It takes 30 headshots to kill a human. What the hell.
For example if I shoot Carlito in the balls he should be crawling and spewing, not just... walkin around like he wasn't just shot in the balls. It's also irritating not being able to take out those psychos driving in the courtyard, the ones who are all like "I DID IT AWL FOR THA NOOKIE! come on THE NOOKIE come on THE NOOKIE!" when you shoot them sumbitches in the occipital lobe. Whaaaaat. This is number one rule of bullets, violated.
On the other hand, a zombie that has no feelings, no mind, no pain and can be basically considered a walking tree trunk gets killed with a damn jumpkick.

And that
Spoiler:
cultist
guy who is friggin unstopping so you have to kill him by
Spoiler:
running past him and whacking him with a running knife or sword attack (don't remember which) and basically run circles around him
like fifty fuckin times, capcom.

This game is a lot more fun when you shout out really bad puns that would be appropiate for a live-action movie while you are killing.

And be kidnapped by the cultists and special forces guys is probably the most annoying thing in any game I've ever played.
Take me back to the day that I went blind, I would like to see your face for one last time.

The dificulty curve of the game is insane, you spend the first hour joking around, finding cool new weapons and having a ball.

However the moment you pick up some survivors it turns into one of the tougest and most stressful games you will ever play.

It took me about 7 goes to get those 3 people out of the fitness area alive, one of whom is incapable of walking, when i did i was on cloud 9 but jesus christ was it tough (on the 3rd time i was in the final area and i accidentally shot the girl in the head).

I don't know about the rest of ya but i never picked up survivors from then on, that first one was enough for me,

Hey, I keep hearing "Special Forces Guys" and I might know what your talking about, since that one person turned into a zombie, but I haven't played far enough to know the difficulty of killing them yet.

They have machine guns. They are immune to headshots. They are quite vulnerable to disembowlment and face smashing.

If you're going for the 7 Day Survivor Achievement: Be prepared to leave your 360 running for 14+ hours. You can not save.
Also, be level 50.
Also, read the Infinite Mode Survival Guide.
