Ultimate KringleJammer Guide [1st & 2nd Try + Tips, FPS Drops & Bluescreen]

Here's how you can get the achivement.

  • Start up the game, go to your main menu and click on New Campaign.
  • Click on KringleJammer on bottom right.
  • Click EMBARK ON ROAD OF RAMPAGE.
  • Survive 7+ waves of incoming zombies.
    (Means make sure you kill every zombie as fast as you can.)
  • Tip: The helicopter's rate of fire is much faster if you keep the mouse moving over the zed.
    If you keep the mouse still, it fires very slowly.
  • By using the + and - keys (the ones next to the backspace button) you can alter the speed at which the game runs. At around 30% to 40% going up to wave 9 or 10 gets pretty simple, not really *easy* but simple.
  • Rate this topic 5 stars.
  • Profit.


Here's a "workaround" try for the BSOD.
  • Update your video card driver
  • ATI: ATI drivers
  • Nvidia: Nvidia drivers
  • If you're running Steam, update the game cache.
    (right-click AZS > Properties > Local Files > Verity Integrity of Game Cache)
  • Go to Atom Zombie Smasher's "data" folder and delete the file: atomzombiesmasher.exe
  • Steam version: C:\program files (x86)\steam\steamapps\common\atomzombiesmasher\dat a
  • Non-Steam version: c:\program files (x86)\atom zombie smasher\data
  • Rename the file atom_net.exe to atomzombiesmasher.exe
  • Rate this topic 5 stars
  • Run the game


Here's how you might manage it on the second try
  • Hit SPACE to slow down game to 10%!
  • Always get bombs! Save them after Wave 3 or 4.
  • Protect the majority of people in the middle.
  • Try to lane 5-6 spawns (preferably lower left or lower right)
  • Always have your choppers radius near two zombie spawns to shoot at.
  • Rate this topic 5 stars
  • Don't stop! Keep moving and clearing!


Here's how you might manage to kill the FPS Drops [ATI]
  • Go to C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\Common\Atomzombie smashers\data
  • Find a file called ATIGxxx.dll (or something along those lines.)
  • Rate this topic 5 stars.
  • Rename it and the problem should be solved.

Might I add that the helicopter's rate of fire is much faster if you keep the mouse moving over the zed. If you keep the mouse still, it fires very slowly.

Except for the big ones, in my experience.

How do I survive? I have a lot of people left alive, but I keep running out of time. In some cases I've had a wave start and then I've ran out of time a few seconds later. The game doesn't tell me how to get more time, so could any of you give me a few tips?

Tried again on a faster computer, got it on my second try (very nearly on the first).

Someone tipped that you should be clicking the zeds. Is hovering constantly over them the preferred method (as if you were erasing them)?

Guide worked great, didn't even need to set the speed down got it on first try (it helps to only have like 5 people living and just guard them).

Got it on first try just by defending 4 people (I've never played the game before but it was really simple to pick up).

Couldn't wait to get out of that. The helicopter does pinkheart all to kill zombies, the bombs do even less. Can't get past the second wave without the zombies running rampant all over the place.

Cue "hurr hurr, u suck at this game comments", but I hate this game. It makes no sense whatsoever.
