When it comes to zombie-slaying, there are no hard and fast
rules; where you are, what’s within reach, and what you’re facing are going to
determine how you get through. Flexibility is the key, and having a few
different strategies up your sleeve will improve your chances of survival.
If you’ve been following us on Instagram, you’ll know
that slayers have been sharing tips for killing a variety of different zombie
types, and we thought we’d share our top 5 general tips here to get you into
the mood to brawl!
Get up close and personal
From hammers to katanas or even bear claws, you’d be amazed
at what these Angelinos keep in their Hollywood houses, but keep an eye out
while looting so you don’t find yourself surrounded.
Aim for the head
If you don’t want to get too close, then the former
occupants of Hell-A have left an unholy shit-ton of guns behind. Get trigger-happy,
but make sure you don’t run low on ammo.
Use the environment
Fire, electricity, caustic strong enough to dissolve flesh;
the environment offers a multitude of ways to slay. Pool full of zombies? Zap
DIY is always your friend. Is your axe not lethal enough?
Whack it onto a workbench and make it burn like hellfire.
Get mad, then get even
Add a little pop of z-power and enter a state of Fury to
hand out major damage.
