Play on Assisted Difficulty

When attempting to complete this record, the easiest way to complete it is to play on the Assisted difficulty. Playing on the Assisted difficulty with give you 4 extra inventory slots at the start of the game as well as giving you an Assault Rifle with a decent amount of ammo.

Playing in this difficulty will also give you more ammo when you craft them from Gunpowder and Explosives. To see the different Gunpowder Combinations check out our guide below.

Do Not Pick Up Unnecessary Items

Inventory Management.jpg

When attempting to complete this record, it is very important to manage your inventory since you cannot use the Item Box to manage your inventory. The only weapons that you need are the G19 Handgun with all custom parts except for the Moderator, the free Assault Rifle given to you at the start of the game, and the Grenade Launcher that you get at the Sewers.

Important Items to Have
Knife Use this to finish off enemies on the ground.
Handgun Use this to kill normal zombies, Ne-α Parasites, or Drain Deimos.
Assault Rifle Use this to kill Hunter-β, Hunter-γ, Pale Heads, and Lickers.
Grenade Launcher Use this to clear multiple enemies or against Nemesis.
Recovery Items First Aid Spray x2
G+R Mixed Herb x1
Ammunition Handgun Ammo x60
Assault Rifle Ammo x200
Flame Rounds x6
Acid Rounds x6
Explosive Rounds x6
Mine Rounds x6

It is also important to not pick up all the ammo and gunpowder you see to leave some space for the key items in the game. It is recommended to only keep 1 full stack of ammo for each weapon in your inventory.

For the recovery items, it will depend on how confident you are with your own skills. We recommend to only keep 1 First Aid Spray or 1 G+R Mixed Herb in your inventory incase of emergencies where you need to heal.

Get All Hip Pouches

If you are already familiar with the locations of all the available Hip Pouches in the game, it is recommended to get all of the Hip Pouches to make managing your inventory easier.

Master Perfect Dodging

Critical Hit

Mastering the Perfect Dodge or the Carlos Punch is very important if you want to complete this record. Mastering this skill can save you a lot of ammo by evading a zombie in the way or killing them much faster and easier.

    • Anyone still alive? Hahahaha. I hope this pandemic doesn't evolve into a zombie apocalypse.

    • I can see marketing elements in the new part of the game. Currently, it is becoming more and more popular. All in all, I am not surprised it is a way to get extra money for game developers. For more information on marketing in games, see this article:
