      300: Steam Achievements \
    Important notes:

      further explanation. 
    Price Chopper
    Survive the Dead Center campaign.
    - Survive the whole campaign in one setting.
    Midnight Rider
    Survive the Dark Carnival campaign.

    clear the area before entering and stay away from close encounters. The Tank 
    can easily be taken down with all four of you firing at him at the same time 
    while running backwards, just watch your surroundings as you do.
    The Real Deal
    Survive a campaign on Expert skill with Realism mode enabled.
    - One of the hardest game achievements. I recommend doing it on Crash Course

    from a safe position and avoid close encounters. See my Crash Course FAQ for 
    more info.
    Confederacy Of Crunches
    Finish a campaign using only melee weapons.
    - Start Dead Center or any other campaign on easy. Pick up any melee weapon 
    from the start of the map and make your way to the finish using it only.

    infected as you will automatically pull out a pistol and any accidental fire 
    will ruin the whole process.

    running toward the rescue.  Should you successfully complete the stage; the
