Step 1: Zombies aren't Normal, they're grim.
Start the game off on grim. Already you should see two locked difficulties out of 5; our goal is to unlock Morbid difficulty at the end of this playthrough. If you want you can start the game out on Normal if Grim ends up being too hard for you. Be warned that beating it on normal will NOT unlock Morbid. The difficulty trophies stack so beating it on Grim will net you the trophies for Normal and Braindead as well. While playing through the game be on the look out for Loot. You can start playing grim in online or offline co-op. You will get the difficulty trophies and also the co-op trophies when you beat the game
Loot consists of money/multipliers/Armor. Loot is located in the trunks of cars, small metal boxes and Armor is located in those big yellow boxes. You must be careful when blowing up cars. Every one of them have something hidden in their trunks. Go up to them and melee them to open them; you will receive gold. Blowing up cars without opening the trunks first will destroy the loot, forcing you to die and restart back at the checkpoint. A good way to keep track of the cars is to blow them up after opening them, this will help you toward the Car Killer trophy and help kill zombies, just be sure the car you're about to destroy isn't near a car that hasn't been opened yet.
You have to comb the levels for tiny metal boxes that glow Yellow(gold) then switch to Red(Multiplier) and vice versa. There will also be boxes that glow Blue. These contain equipment and ammo for you and are very useful in many situations.
The big yellow boxes contain Armor. You can equip this Armor in the weapon shop to increase your stats such as making you faster, taking more hits and hitting harder. There are 3 sets for armor; Armoshell, Exogear and Protosuits. There are 5 different iterations of each armor for your torso, arms and legs (ex. Exogear #2, protosuit #5, armoshell #1). Doing this is recommended to make Morbid easier.
Loot consists of only crates and cars; nothing else counts. If you get 97% at the end of the level, you must have missed a car.
10,000+ zombies should be dead at the end of this playthrough. It won't be hard hitting this mark. You will be killing almost 1000 zombies a level, with almost 2000 in the last level. Be sure to burn, explode, headshot and melee as many zombies as you can while also blowing up cars.
Campaign Trophies do NOT unlock using mission select, which means you have to start a new game and beat it to get the difficulty trophies. Certain other trophies also do not unlock. You should only be using mission select for going back and upping your kill count along with finding loot.
Step 2: Morbidly Undead.
After beating the game on Grim, start your game on Morbid. Here enemies are faster and stronger. Luckily though, your armor transfers over. So if you were a good little last remaining human survivor, you'd have gotten all the armor. If not, do it now. All the kill trophies are cumulative, whatever you did in Grim carries over, so go burn, explode, headshot and blow up cars. You should know the levels by now so try to not die.
Step 3: The Undead and Co-Op
So you beat Morbid, good job. You unlocked the hardest difficulty setting, Undead. Go play the 1st level and beat it for the last difficulty related trophy. If you haven't already beaten the game with a friend using my suggestion, do it now. You can do it on braindead difficulty; you'll get the trophy either way. Here's a warning though, playing the game on co-op curves the difficulty a bit, so playing a game on morbid co-op is much harder than playing it solo.
Step 4: 53,596 zombies later(clean up)
If you're still missing some trophies, get them now. Your last trophy most likely will be the Genocidiary trophy, beating the game will net you around 10,000 kills, so just replay the last level until you get your trophy. You can check how many you have killed in the stats page.
You can pick mission select to go back and get whatever trophies you need. You will NOT earn campaign trophies though such as beating the game or beating a level.

The first installment of DLC for Dead Nation, it sees the player being put though a survival test to make experiments or something. The aim of the game is to survive as long as you can while choosing routes which you want to go down, the first 3 paths are weapons, health and money, supplies and score. The rest branch out from these choices. Slashers are very very dangerous they basically one hit kill you in the higher rounds and they charge very fast. Make sure you take them out ASAP. DON'T go down the score route, it's the hardest route and grants you nothing in the way of weapons etc, go down this route if you want to get the combo and kill per minute trophies.
Step 1 - Reach round 10 (Solo)
Firstly you will want to go though the "Money" door, make sure you collect all the $ boxes some are hidden like the one in the very top right corner under a plant. You should finish the first round with around 300000+ money. You will want to FULLY upgrade your Rifle and upgrade your flares all but the last upgrade on duration and all of the upgrades on inventory. It will be much easier with a fully upgraded rifle. For round 2 go though the "weapons" door. You will want to get all the boxes in this room so make sure to search everywhere. I got the "Rocket Launcher" from the weapon shop as it is very useful if you use it with your flares. Now for the 3rd round you will want to go though the "Armour" door which is the door to your right. You will want to get to set up this armour combination:
This will make you be able to run faster and will save you a lot of the time. For Round 4 you will want to get "Mines", these are very very helpful when you encounter a huge group of zombies. For the next round I went back down the money route so I could fully upgrade my mines. Remember when you go down the "Health" route to collect the special healthpack, this is new to dead nation and works like a supply, you press at anytime and you get a full health boost, make sure you save it for the end battle of each round. info has also written a very useful route to take, all credit to info:
I just 100% Dead Nation. The DLC is completely soloable. Here are some tips:
Never Give Up:
Round 1: Money - Upgrade your SMG to max
Round 2: Turret
Round 3: Money - Upgrade Flare, Turret
Round 4: Mine
Round 5: Money - Save for Shocker
Round 6: Shocker
Round 7: Health
Round 8: Weapon whatever
Round 9: Health
Round 10: Supplies - in my opinion supplies is easier than weapon. your choice
Round 11: Health
SMG is very powerful. At the end of each round just spam 2 or 3 turrets and mines then get in corner. Jumpers and Slashers will rarely get through your defense. If they do get through just dash out. Watch out for your own mines.
Dynamic Duo: (2 controllers)
Upgrade max fire rate for Rifle, and use the health round. Move slowly. There is only one time the enemies will come behind. Note down that place and you will get this very easily.
Keep It Up
Round 1: Money - Upgrade max SMG (no need for max power), don't do anything to Rifle or Flare
Round 2: Weapon - Shocker
Round 3: Money - Upgrade Shocker (I didn't have enough money for max clip, but it didn't matter)
Round 4: Multiplier - RUSH WITH SHOCKER (spin 360 degree as you move). Lure 2 or 3 Screamers, let them scream and spin shocker. Shocker won't kill screamers, so you can just spin it as much as you want. Don't hang around this area too much. Save about 300 shots for the last area. Use SMG to kill Slashers. I finished with 150 kill-per-min.
If this isn't working for you, try this additional method mentioned in the quote below, credit to Cloud-Loku
Round 10 (solo) at the second try
I follow this path:
Round 1 -Money
Round 2 -Weapon (Granade Launcher)
Round 3 -Money
Round 4 -Supplies (Turret)
Round 5 -Health
Round 6 -Supplies (Mine)
Round 7 -Health
Round 8 -Supplies (Granade)
Round 9 -Health
By the end of this step you should have Still in the Game and Never Give Up
Step 2: Exogate chests, Co-op and miscellaneous trophies in Arcade mode
The latest patch added an 'Arcade Mode' to this DLC. What that means is you can play but you have checkpoints, you can only reach round 6 though so you cannot use this to reach round 10. Exogate chests are the round chests that can be found in each of the routes, they are pretty easy to find this will net you the Found 'Em trophy, you hit them to get the loot out of them. The next thing you will want to do is play local or coop, you can find coop partners in the Trophy Boosting Thread or if you have somebody to play it local with you, this will get you the Dynamic Duo. The other trophies you will want to get in this step are Combo Master and Keep it up.
