Xbox gamer: Danbranky, was kind enough to submit his Kino Der Toten strategy for playing solo. His strategy should help beginners manage to survive through the first 7 rounds of Kino Der Toten.
His Record Solo: Round 34
Round 1-2: During these rounds only knife the zombies. On round 1 it takes 1 knife and on round 2 it takes 2. There are 4 windows. Check each window frequently until the round is over.
Round 3: Now you can shoot the zombies with your pistol. Try not to get down when a zombie tries to hurt you through a window. If you are being overwhelmed then go to the top stairs and open the door that cost 750 points.
Round 4: If you still have 1000 points left then thats good. Keep on going until you see another door thats 1000 points. Open the door and you’ll be in the Foyer. Try to shoot and knife as much as you can until you can afford the MP40. The MP40 cost 1000. Once you have the gun stay down from the stairs and make sure you can see the 2 windows and both staircases.
Round 5: Stay in the area that I talked about in round 4. Try not to let the zombies in from the windows and guard the stairs as much as you can.
Round 5, 6, or 7: You might have dog rounds. If you face dogs, then a huge fog will cover the whole entire map and dogs that look demented will spawn from lightning bolts that randomly occur anywhere. Try to stay in a corner and shoot the dogs as much as you can because at the end of each wave of dogs you fend off against, the last dog of the wave will drop Max Ammo. The name of the power up says what it does.
Round 6: Do the same thing you did in round 4 and camp where you see the windows and the staircases. If you ever need more ammo for the MP40 then go to where you bought it and then hold X to buy ammo.
Round 7: At this point, if you 2500 points then open the next 2 doors and you will be in the area called the Stage. Walk/Run along the curtains and you will see a big switch. Go to the switch and hold X near it and the Power will turn on.
Round 7+: Once the power is on then you can go around trying to get better guns or use the mystery box and upgrading guns. Then you can find a strategy from this strategy.
