Heros Requirements
Has anyone had issues getting The Killer, The Scholar, or The Father? Those are the only three I haven't gotten yet. I have not built an infirmary or collected medicine and even left the game for a whole day and the worst anyone got was a "fever". I have also shot propane tanks while standing right next to them and no one ever gets seriously hurt to get The Killer. I am also not sure what max out all facilities means. Do I need to go to each site and fill all slots or what? Also what items do I need to research for The Scholar? I managed to get "The Sniper" but never had an escort mission for him. I only have 18 people and plenty of room so I can't be maxed out on population.

max out all facilities is upgrade all buildings as high as they can go.
research everything you can for scholar
killer just seems random

Thats what I thought but the highest I have gotten has been maybe 5 toward getting him. I have maxed out two machine shops (ammo and machine) the dojo, the tower, the storage, the medical area, the garden, and the bedroom. What else would I be missing?

The Scholar needs:
1. Research Greenhouse Gardening
2. Research Biodiesel
3. Research Potent Homemade Stims
4. Research Box Mine
5. Research Chemical Incendiaries
6. Research Whistling Box Mine
7. Research Pipe Bomb
8. Research Steel Pipe Bomb

The Father requires all of the facilities built to their max level.
1. Library
2. Dining Area
3. Cooking Area
4. Training Area -> Dojo
5. Garden -> Greenhouse
6. Sleeping Area -> Bunkhouse
7. Watchtower -> Shooting Platform
8. Storage -> Food Storage -> Refrigerated Storage
9. Basic Workshop -> Workshop -> Machine Shop
10. Basic Workshop -> Workshop -> Munitions Shop
11. Medical Area -> Infirmary -> Medical Lab

I still haven't managed to get The Killer...I may just start a new profile and force an Enclave recruit to park in bloater filth until he gets poisoned proper.

Keeping in mind too...each Research (unmodded, no researcher) is 4 hours apiece and moving to the next level resets the Challenge.

Ah ha! I never build a kitchen or dining area and maybe thats where I am falling short. I will try those. Mucho thanks!!

I think (don't remember now) that the built-in facilities don't count towards the challenge too, so I definitely don't advise moving onto the next level before finishing it. All those wasted resources -.-
Kommando Dec 9, 2013 @ 8:49pm 
Yeah I think you're right. I may just destroy the green house and build a cooking area then a dining area. He has been a pain to get along with The Killer.

Another hero tip...Greenhouse doesn't count for the Garden challenge, per others on here. I'm still missing that hero too... 48/50 because I can't find a gardener (Zombies beat the Plants ;)) or kill a guy in a SURVIVAL game. xD

I almost have her. I built a garden and researched the garden thingy in the library and haven't upgraded it yet. So far leaving the game off most of the day yielded 6 towards her. I hear she sucks though. I am almost ready to move on and get "The Scientist". He is immune to screamers and rotters. :D The Ninja is pretty awesome to and learns skills at an alarming rate not to mention you can quick search without fear of attracting zeds.

i failed to get the killer. One of my survivors was listed sick as "Looks fatal- he wont last much longer" Or something like that. I thought aswesome, I can finally get this one done. Miraculously, the next day, full recovery. Sigh. Everything else has been easy.

Same here I had two that were "gravely ill" but never progressed into anything worse. I am wondering if its bugged.

Each hero is unlocked by specific achievements on specific (minimum?) levels. Make sure you've met the requirements if you still don't have the hero.

I knew how to get the The Killer but I am thinking its bugged as no one ever gets black fever and requires to be shot. I was drawing a blank on that whole "max out every type of facility" for The Father. Thanks for the link!

You might try using Romero's Zombies Mod, since it causes black fever from zombie bites faster. I've been debating on if I want to do that myself...just to speed up getting the challenge done.

Has anybody actually been able to get "The Killer" ? I have been trying for a few days now, but i just can't get them sick enough to kill them.

The important part for the father is that built-in stuff doesn't count.

Doesn't those mods overwrite the base game files? I had looked into installing it after I beat the original game before breakdown. I HATE getting chased up the street by those stupid armored zombies. I think it would be more fun to immerse yourself in a true Romero style world.
