Infinite scrap

While at any Emergency Shelter, go to the basement and fast travel to the Willamette Mall Emergency Shelter. Use the Employee's Only hallway to reach Caribbean Cove through the back doors that lead straight into the Pirate Ship's bottom floor entrance. In the first Pirate Ship room, loot the Treasure Chest. Treasure Chests typically give approximately 4,000 scrap. Then, pause the game and select the "Load Last Checkpoint" option. You will return to the Willamette Mall Emergency Shelter and the Treasure Chest will have respawned. Repeat this process as many times as desired. You can get approximately 40,000 scrap every 10 minutes.

Easy PP

This method will allow you to kill approximately 1,200+ zombies every 5-8 minutes. Keep your zombie score multiplier running to get bonus PP and scrap for reaching milestones. Go to the church in south-eastern West Ridge. This area contains huge hordes of zombies. Near the steps is a military platform with an Exo Suit. Grab it, then get the Vacuum upgrade for the Exo Suit to the left of the stairs. Kill as many zombies as possible while circling the church. You can easily get 1,200+ zombie kills before the power runs out. Once the power runs out on the Exo Suit, enter the nearby van and drive it to the bridge connecting West Ridge to Old Town. This will activate a checkpoint. Once a checkpoint is activated, everything in the area will be reset. Return to the church in West Ridge and collect the Exo Suit and Vacuum upgrade again. Repeat this process as many times as desired. The level cap is 100.

Killing 37,000 zombies an hour

First, get the Sling Rot combo vehicle blueprint located on the side staircase of the church, which is located on the bottom-right end of Old Town. You will also need all five bottom row skills in the Brawling section. Create the Sling Rot combo vehicle using the snowplow truck and hearse found directly in front of the church. They can also be found on the highway behind the church. Drive the Sling Rot in a perfect square around Old Town for the first loop, killing as many zombies as possible. Drive it on the inside streets of the square you just drove for the second loop. Drive it up to the bridge on the highway (behind the church) on the left-side for the third loop, then turn around and drive it back to the church. Your vehicle should have very little health remaining once you reach the church after driving those loops. The vehicle and zombies will now have respawned. All three loops take approximately three minutes and get close to 2,000 zombie kills. Keep repeating this to kill approximately 37,000 zombies an hour. Additionally, make sure to keep reaching the 75 kill combo to get the special flame ability for the vehicle to kill a lot more zombies. Use the special flame ability on large hordes of zombies to easily kill them. Use this method to get the "Z-Genocider 4: The Return" and "Left 100,004 Dead 2" achievements and complete the trial for getting 250,000 zombie kills.

Easily level up Emergency Shelters

To quickly and easily level up an Emergency Shelter, leave the shelter, find a survivor event (shown by a blue "?" icon), and a survivor will call for help. Kill all the nearby zombies and the survivor will return to your shelter. Run back to the shelter, then repeat the process as many times as desired. Survivor events will keep respawning after you return back to the shelter. The following are two survivor event locations next to shelters early in the game:

    Willamette Memorial Megaplex: There is a survivor event at the top of the stairs to the underground parking entrance between the Central Plaza and Amazon Food Court.

    Old Town: There is a survivor event in the parking lot behind the church and near the cemetery entrance. It is very close to the Old Town Emergency Shelter.

You only need to reach Level 3 by saving four survivors to unlock the most important vendor upgrades —- including key item locations on your map.

Getting Exo Suits

To unlock the Exo Suit, progress through the main story until you leave Willamette Memorial Megaplex and reach Old Town. While in Old Town, the Exo Suit will become available. To get more Exo Suits, find the caches marked "Exo Suit" scattered throughout the game. The caches can also be in other supply crates or just lying on the ground in corners. To easily find an Exo Suit, look for large shipping containers guarded by Obscuris mercenaries since those containers usually have an Exo Suit cache in them. The battery in an Exo Suit only lasts two minutes. An Exo Suit basically allows you to easily kills zombies while being invincible and having unlimited stamina. Additionally, some interactions are only possible with an Exo Suit, which provide unconventional weapons for the Exo Suit that can be further enhanced by collecting ammunition crates for power-ups, such as guns and missiles.

Lure one zombie up the stairs and away from the pack so it is alone. Grab the assault rifle on the table of the balcony, after going up the stairs.
