Brain Drain

The return of Behead The Undead! And this time, it's monkeys! Actually, it's much easier this time around. The challenge takes place in the Hotel, between two staircases. You can move either side of the stairs and between them, but not up them. There is a shotgun spawn point between the staircases to top up your ammo. The whole idea of this challenge is to smack the heads off as many zombie monkeys as you can before you snuff it, and there will be several ways in which these monkeys will attempt to get this job done. The most common is to simply shuffle towards you and slap you up a bit, and the ones that do this will either shuffle slowly or quickly. Another method will be a ghost appearing from the middle of the arena which will simply try to collide with you. And finally, the most dangerous are the monkeys with shotguns of their own. All of these bar the shotgun are pretty easy to avoid and deal with. The idea here is to never stay in one place for long. The first couple of waves will generate slow moving monkeys from either side of your start point, which can be easily dispatched via application of shotgun shell to cranium. Wave 4 will start sending the faster monkeys at you, as well as introduce you to Mr Shottie. The shotgun monkeys will appear on the left staircase (from where you start). Dispatch them in the same way, it doesn't take much to dislodge their head. A little later and you'll start getting monkeys coming down both sets of stairs as well as the ghosts appearing. These can be sorted out with a single blast. Finally, there are two openings behind the staircases that can spawn monkeys as well. The two top priority targets are the shotgun monkeys and the ghosts in that order. Keep your eyes on the top of the left staircase, especially at the start of a wave. An ideal method for dealing with the ground monkeys is to run into a corner and let them come towards you. Then blast a path through to the opposite corner and run for it. Then turn around and repeat. You can occasionally switch sides of the staircase as well, it never gets too crowded to move.
