27. Two Heads Are Better Than One (5G) — Kill Multiple Walkers with One Bullet

You can get this as soon as you start the game using Daryl, you will pick up the rifle finding the gas cans. Basically just get a double kill, but try and aim for the head to make it easier.
The trick is to do this in an open area and to wait for a second zombie to wander in behind the first zombie that’s approaching you.

28. Have a Nice Trip! (20G) — Kill a Walker That Is Falling Due to Dismemberment

Location: Cabot Ridge
You can do this pretty much everywhere if you have a firearm and some ammo. The earliest chance is in the first area of the game, Cabot Ridge. After the opening sequence you will be told to collect some fuel and on the way you can pick up a rifle. Kill all walkers, except for one and shoot its leg. After a few (3) shots the walker will fall down to the ground and while it is falling you have to shoot its head (quickly shooter another 3 times in the head). Again, the kill has to be done WHILE the zombie is falling, not after it starts crawling.

29. Mind if I Borrow This? (15G) — Pull a Bolt From a Walker Then Kill Them With It

This can be a bit tricky to pull the bolt from the zombie when they keep trying to hit you. Basically, you can pull the bolt out and shoot them in the head with it. Take a look at how it’s done in the video guide.

30. Ooh, Shiny! (15G) — Distract 50 Walkers with Items

31. That Looks Like It Hurt (30G) — Restore Survivors 25 Times

32. Extreme Conditioning (10G) — Sprint Until You’re Exhausted 10 Times in One Level

34. Still Not Buying a Hybrid (10G) — Consume 250 Fuel

35. Duct Tape Can Fix Anything (10G) — Survive 5 Breakdowns

36. Next Step: Bullet Belt (15G) — Fire 300 Bullets

37. Down to My Last (15G) — Complete the Game with Only 1 Firearm and 1 Bullet Left in Your Inventory

40. Rosie the Rampager (20G) — Arrive at Final Destination with Only Female Survivors

41. The Missing 8 (50G) — Find Every Poster

Tip: Find all 8 Posters using our The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct Posters Locations Guide.

42. I Used to Be a Human Like You (5G) — Shoot a Walker in the Knee with a Bolt

Location: Near the end of the game once you receive the crossbow.
You can do this on any Walker that’s got its back to you. Try and get up close behind a Walker, because the crossbow is delayed when fired. Shoot around the knee area and it’ll most probably go in their leg.

43. This Is How Hot Dogs Are Made (10G) — 10 Walkers Killed with Saw Blades in the Logging Camp

44. BOOM! Who Needs a Headshot? (15G) — Kill 5 Walkers with One Explosion

Location: Firesign Stadium
At the very end of the story you will have to defend a helipad. After that you will be shooting a machine gun that has infinite ammo. Lots of walkers will attack and there are several propane tanks nearby. Shoot one of these white colored propane tanks for a chance to kill 5 enemies with one explosion.
There are multiple propana tanks, so you have more than one chance. Let the walkers kill you if you need another try.

45. Group Hug (5G) — Kill 4 Walkers in a Single Grapple Sequence

Get yourself in between 4 or more zombies and let them grab you, get 4 kills in a row this way, and then the achievement will pop!
