Sweetie, I’d hide as quickly as possible. Hopefully you are or were stocking up before then and have some supplies. If not, you will have to wait it out a few weeks before the city clears out and the zombies scatter.
Aim for the head
also, duct tape on your arms, a few layers, but not too tight. basically it’ll stop a zombie taking a chunk out of your arm if you’re reloading or your blade gets jammed in a zombie
wearing a wetsuit underneath your clothing would also be useful. remember; they were human once, humans have blunt teeth! you try biting through duct tape AND a wet suit
never duct tape joints, your movements will be limited, and you want to be fast and danger (gotta go fast)
don’t hole up in small houses either that’s a recipe for disaster, you want somewhere with a secure upstairs, and a way down from the upstairs that is zombie free or can easily be cleared of zombies (avoid fire exits with steps leading up to them though, unless they have gates at the bottom)
sound = attraction, so if you do have guns, use them only in emergencies or for the sake of popping one head you’ll be greeted with many many more
raid your local medical shops, and get there first, nobody is going to stop and share it out equally while they’re panicking. don’t hit out at somebody unless they hit out at you, though, you already have unintelligent corpses pitted against you, you don’t want sentient humans on your case as well (zombies don’t do the revenge thing, humans do!)
try not to piss people off, because as stated before, yes, humans like revenge
don’t try and be clever and use yourself as live bait; yes playing the hero is glorious in movies, but it doesn’t work so glamorously in real life
large numbers isn’t a good idea. you want small groups, even if you just branch out from being in a larger group, because if there’s a lot of you you are a bigger target, but don’t then go off and decide to be in groups that are too small in case you get surrounded (in which case, the duct tape and wet suits will come in handy)
food shouldn’t be that hard to come by, most people would have attempted to flee the area straight from their houses and packed what they had, raiding local shops could still be worth it. but remember, know your way in, your way out, and double check there’s nothing in the shop ready to sneak up behind you while you’re reaching up for that tin of beans
half balaclava masks or something similar to cover your lower face while fighting zombies could also be useful, you don;t want to accidentally ingest flying zombie fluids and end up one of them, that’d be a nasty surprise for your group to wake up to (since going solo possibly isn’t a good idea)
and always, ALWAYS, have a way to start a fire on you
how long will it burn if it isn’t an emergency???????
I found myself wondering about the benefits of MREs (Meals Ready to Eat).
This article came up, and it highlights all of the downsides of MREs and why you should look into other alternatives.
Basically, they are really bad for you, not cost effective, and rather heavy for what they are.
It’s definitely worth checking out if MREs were part of your apocalypse plan.
There is a big possibility that it would spread through water. And if you were by a sea port, i suggest you get out of there quick. Usually ports are teaming with people.
Hello new followers :)
And for everyone, I’m so sorry i haven’t been posting. Why not ask me some questions and i’ll start getting you answers?
I found this app called ‘zombie survival prepare’ give it a try
In a real zombie catastrophe, gas stations will quickly be sucked dry by desperate survivors scrambling to drive to safety. With no fuel, cars will almost instantly become useless metal shells, able to provide some basic level of shelter and nothing more.
But if you’re all stocked up on gas and looking to create the perfect zombie survival vehicle, consider covering it with a solid layer of Rexar, a hard polyurethane spray used to protect everything from truck beds to military helicopters.
Featured on Discovery Channel’s Storm Chasers for its ability to shield against violent tornado winds and debris,Rexar by Rhino passed extensive tests at New Mexico Institute of Technology, proving its impressive blast mitigating capabilities for commercial and government use.
Applying Rexar to your vehicle won’t turn it into an impenetrable moving fortress, but it is a good start to creating an armored transport to ward off swarming zombies or a human mob.
