Successfully complete the game. Select “Next Play” to start a second playthrough with all previously earned money and inventory items (blueprints, weapons, etc.).
Duplicating items

When you reach a checkpoint during any campaign quest in Solo mode, drop the item(s) on the ground you want to duplicate (you can drop all the items in your inventory). Then, kill yourself by using Deo-Bombs or Molotov’s. When the respawn timer begins to countdown, pause the game, and reload your checkpoint. When you respawn, all the weapons you dropped will be back in your inventory and will also still be laying on the ground where you dropped them. Note: You also will not suffer the cash penalty from dying since you reloaded the checkpoint. Note: This glitch was done on an unpatched version of the game. You can delete all patches for the game by using the “Clear hard drive cache” code for the Xbox 360.

Equip an item that can be thrown, then press [Throw Weapon] + [Drop Weapon]. Your character should throw the item, and then quickly drop a copy of the same item. Repeat this as many times as desired.

Look at your feet, hold [Throw Weapon], then hold [Swing] + Y. If done correctly, the item will fall out of your hands, and you will throw another one down at your feet. Note: This can be done with both the analog and digital fighting style.

While playing as Logan, hold [Aim], then hold [Fury] while aiming at multiple zombies, then press RT. Instead of Logan using his knives, he will throw the equipped weapon, causing the game to duplicate your equipped item.

Equip a stackable item, such as tails, grenades, medkits, etc. Make sure you are one item under your item capacity 9/10, 13/14, etc. Make sure the item is equipped and in your hand. Then, craft the Deo-Bomb, tail, or Meat Bait. You will now have two stacks of that item instead of one. Repeat this as many times as desired. Just make sure you have enough materials. Note: Make sure to use a recipe that is different from the item you are duplicating, as this glitch sometimes does not work if it is done that way. For example, do not use the Deo-Bomb recipe if you are duplicating the Deo-Bomb. This glitch was done on an unpatched version of the game. You can delete all patches for the game by using the “Clear hard drive cache” code for the Xbox 360.

Quick travel between areas until a merchant sells the necessary materials to craft a Deo-Bomb. Then, go to a crafting table, and craft up to the max of 30 Deo-Bombs. Once you have 30 Deo-Bombs in your inventory, each new bomb crafted will create an additional 30 Deo-Bombs. Repeat this as many times as desired. -From: DJD96
Easy money

Go to the warehouse, and get the Hammer and Baseball Bat. Then, fast travel to the Church, and sell them to get approximately $400. Go back to the Warehouse, and the Hammer and Baseball Bat will have respawned. Repeat this as many times as desired. Note: You must be in the City and have discovered both the Church and the Warehouse to do this trick.

Find an area with a lot of value items (champagne, etc.), such as kitchens and fridges. Collect the items, then leave the area or fast travel to another location and back for the items to respawn. Collect as many items as possible, then sell them for easy money.

Use the “Duplicating items” trick to duplicate as many items as desired. Then, sell the items for easy money.
Easy Molotov tails

After you complete Act 3, enter the hotel, and go down the hallways until you reach the lounge with tables and chairs. There will be approximately 10 bottles of alcohol on the bar that you can pick up. These bottles of alcohol will respawn once you exit the hotel and re-enter the hotel, traveling the same way you went. Collect as many bottles of alcohol as desired, then go to Harland, and trade the bottles of alcohol for Molotov tails. You will get one Molotov tail for every three bottles of alcohol. Repeat this as many times as desired. A Molotov tail can kill most zombies in a single area instantly. -From: Demetri
Killing large groups of zombies

When you encounter large groups of zombies or a lot of them are chasing you, run to the closest vehicle. Jump on top of it, and crouch on the hood. You can hit the zombies, but they should not be able to attack you. Note: Do not do this on the roof of the vehicle, as you will not be able to hit them, and they can still sometimes hit you. Use the analog style of fighting to get more decapitations and swing your weapon faster.
Drowning zombies

When zombies are chasing you, simply run into the water, then kick them so they drown to get easy XP instead of trying to melee them.
Getting kills without dulling your weapon

Killing zombies will dull your weapon. However, when the weapon is close to breaking, it is not completely useless. Throwing your weapons can damage zombies without dulling the weapon. If you have a weapon worth keeping, but it is almost used up, keep throwing it at zombies until you can repair it again.
