Slaughter mode consists of all out bloody zombie splattering fun - No objective other than to survive as long as you can
as the waves get harder and harder .. and harder.
Slaughter is the best mode to get your Kill Achievements
(10k / 50k). A single round could net you 1000s of kills!Drive over everything
- Remember to destroy as many objects on the map while you are killing zombies. This will ensure you get your Destructibles achievements.
The maps for Slaughter are generally small and easy to navigate. For each map follow a set main path
that will take you over most of the map and that circles around the full area to maximise your damage going past as many power-up drop points as possible. You want it to be easy to drive around, wide, with room to maneuver.
Once you have a main path locked down find an alternate path
you can use to mix up your route, covering the odd power-up drop point not covered by your main path and ensuring a 'bug out' option of your main path gets crowded.Use your Nitro after turns with a short burst
to keep your speed high. Use long burst if you hit something or need escape.Light armor vehicles will not last long in Slaughter.
You need to choose something strong with good ramming points so you can make a mess like the above screenshot.
On the 'faster' side the Police Car, Muscle Car, Chaos 126p or Ambulance
are ok choices.
On the 'stronger' side the Military Truck, Auroch, Super Car or even the Bus
can see you to good scores. See what works best for you.
Use your weapons as soon as
zombies are in your sights - keep to your path and keep your speed up
. Destroy everything in the arena to get some bonus points and try to string together continuous zombie kills to get the best combos.
If you miss a power-up drop you were trying to pickup its best not to slow and turn around (or reverse!). Take a wider route and circle back to the power-up
otherwise you can risk taking much more damage.
Ensure when you level-up that you pickup all the random power-ups dropped as ASAP
! If you happen to level-up again before you pick them up these will be overwritten/lost by the new power-up drops for the new level. Most power-ups will have an immediate benefit so make them a priority
after every level-up.Be wary of the occasional level that spawns a large number of Fat Zombies.
These can catch you off guard and end your game super quickly. One seems to come up every 5-10 levels on an average for me. Some arenas don't spawn Fat Zombies for quite a few levels often resulting in some reckless driving .. until they suddenly appear again to hasten your demise! Always be cautious and look ahead.
Remaining achievements are for Medals, Levels & Scores
. These go hand-in-hand and will often trigger in the same game. To get the Golds (and required 250k Score achievement) you will need to get to around 30 waves. The Gold medal scores are different for each map. Make sure you have a strong car (Military Truck, Auroch, Super Car), use the tricks here and get practicing!
Most (or least) importantly ... don't constantly turn in circles .. it can make you dizzy as hell
