Wave and Smile
Play any Arena in co-op.
After reaching the Arena lobby (see Tips and Strategies) you’ll spawn directly in front of the vendor Wes Tweddle. On both his sides you’ll find two staircases each leading up and down. In the top floor you’ll find Arena A (Easy) and Arena B (Very hard) and on the bottom floor you’ll find Arena C (Hard) and Arena D (Moderate)
To earn this trophy simply choose one of these arenas and as soon as you spawn inside this trophy will pop.
Set 5 enemies on fire and then kill them with explosives.
This trophy requires the player to set 5 zombies on fire and instead of letting the fire kill the undead the player must kill the living torches with explosives such as deo-bombs, grenades or explosive barrels or fuel tanks.
Since grenades seem very rare and uncommon in this game, I’ll recommend using the deo-bomb. You'll only need duct-tape and deodorants to build a deo-bomb and the mod is given by Mick Fler in the Resort Lighthouse after finishing the side quest, Tell Me Where It Hurts.
This trophy is not as hard as it sounds! You don't have to kill all 5 zombies in one go. It is though recommended to aim at larger groups of enemies since especially low-level players may not have a lot of deodorants to make the deo-bomb and therefore not many tries.
When I did this trophy I teleported to Arena B (Very hard)
since the zombies will die from the Molotov in other arenas. I threw a Meat-bait to gather 6 zombies and immediately threw my Molotov into the mass. After this you have to be quick with the deo-bomb, since it takes about two seconds before it goes off and the zombies must be killed by the explosive and not the Molotov.
Here are two alternative ways to earn this trophy:
Out of honey? Chew bees!
Survive 5 waves using only your fists and legs.
This shouldn’t prove too difficult. Teleport to Arena A (Easy)
and through the first 5 rounds only use your fists and legs. You can still repair your items and use Medkits and Energy Drinks, but no kills with weapons are allowed.
If your character is low-level find a co-op partner in this
thread and focus on getting at least one kill during each of the 5 waves.
Complete a set
Kill enemies of 6 different types during a single round.
To achieve this trophy you need to kill all 6 types of zombies in one single arena match. Not in a single wave.
You’ll only be able to earn this trophy in Arena C (Hard)
since it’s the only arena featuring the Ram zombie.
This is easily done in co-op so visit this
page to find a partner, but the trophy can of course be obtained in single player mode as well.
You’ll have to reach level 14/15 before the last type of zombie will spawn.
Here’s a list of the different zombies and which level they usually appear in:
- Walkers - Wave 1
- Infected - Wave 6
- Suicider - Wave 7
- Floater - Wave 8
- Ram - Wave 11
- Butcher - Wave 14 or 15
It may differ from time to time which wave the different zombies appear in, but this seemed to be the average when I was playing.
Looking for trouble
Survive 5 waves in each of the 4 Arenas.
Simply take one of your characters and survive the first 5 waves of each arena. This is really doable, but if you find yourself in trouble you can always find a co-op partner in this
Stick it to the enemy
Survive 15 consecutive waves using the analog combat controls.
Ahh.. The Analog Combat Controls are back! Instead of the Digital controls allowing you to attack with your weapon using
you’ll have to switch to analog by pressing
and navigate to "Options"
where you’ll see different fans. Navigate to “Controls”
and the last option in this fan is “Fight type”
Now switch to “Analog”
To attack you must hold down
and swing away with
If you hate this combat system as much as I do, you can simply use kicks and guns. They work the same way on both Analog and Digital fight controls. When you reach wave 16 this trophy will pop.
Survive 15 consecutive waves with each of the 4 characters.
This trophy is pretty self-explanatory. You have to complete 15 waves with all of the four characters Xian, Purna, Sam B and Logan.
The best way to do this is to find a co-op partner in this
thread and let his/hers best character protect you.
This can of course be done offline, but even in Arena A (Easy)
this will prove a challenge especially if your characters was as low-leveled as min (around 5-6)
Once you have survived 15 waves with ALL characters this trophy will pop.
Survive 10 consecutive waves using only custom weapons.
Custom weapons are weapons with mods. A weapon like Zed's Demise or the Tijuana Machete is not a custom weapon. You need to fully repair one of your weapons at a workbench and navigate to the fan "Create"
. Now choose a mod to make a custom weapon.
use anything but custom weapons. Nothing! Neither legs nor fists, not even head stomps! You are though allowed to use the
combination when a zombie crawl up on you.
If you don't have much money, one weapon is enough just remember to repair it often! It is however recommended to have at least two modified weapons with you.
My favourite setup was:
- Zed's Demise w. Deathstalker mod
- McCall's 9mm w. Pride gun mod
It's a good idea to use a gun since the Suicider zombies and the burning Infected zombies are pretty annoying to kill with melee weapons.
Once you completed 10 Consecutive
waves with only custom weapons this trophy will pop.

Survive 30 consecutive waves with at least one co-op player.
This trophy can be tricky especially for low-level players, but fear not.
There will always be the same amount of zombies even though four players are present. With four descent players this trophy is really easy, and even if your character sucks your partners will easily get you to wave 30.
Medkits are great. Loot as many as you can. They are quick to use and can help you out of a tight spot. Furthermore repair often! It is cheaper to repair at the end of every round instead of repairing when your weapon condition is dangerously low.
But go on dear friend, find some co-op partners. Visit this
Survive wave 30.
This trophy will unlock just after clearing the 30th wave.
