Zombies vs. Humans: Quick bits

Human Survival Tips:

The most dangerous places to be are Mocon around meals and the Campus Center nearly all of the time–Mocon especially, since there’s only one exit. Try to exit with at least one person who has access to the Nics and bolt for Nic 7.

Nerf guns are snazzy, but seem to be not as effective as marshmallows in the hands of people who don’t know how to use them.

Mini-marshmallows have more spread and less range; Regular marshmallows have more range and less spread. Always throw more than one at a time, and keep them in your palms as you walk.

There have been a few bike zombie sightings. Remember that they’re faster in a straight line but don’t handle turns as well. Stun them from the side if you can, but otherwise head for trees, the nearest building, or (safely) cross the road if you see them coming. Hint: The light outside of Psi U almost always changes color immediately when you hit the “cross” button.

If you’re running from many zombies coming from different directions, instead of sprinting as fast as you can, try directly charging one zombie at a time and stunning them individually.

Try not to be outside during peak class change times. Go early or late. If you can, take less-popular routes, and stay off the walkways.

    Fighting groups of zombies is not impossible. I single handedly took on 3 at one time armed only with a nerf maverick. The odds are in your favor if it’s a loosely assembled group as mine was, I started off facing only one, but in seconds two others had sprinted in and I was in a pickle. The key to eliminating multiple zombie targets is to be offensive, especially when they don’t have a plan. The key thing to remember is that all the zombies want the kill, so needless to say they will be afraid of getting tagged out and will be more than willing to retreat to a hearty charge with weapons held out. Deal with them one at a time with offensive play in mind and an escape is hardly impossible, heck, I’d even say you have an advantage if there are 3 or fewer zombies per each human involved.

    If you know how to use a gun, keep it cocked and ready while you’re in a killzone. That usually means two-handed, at eye level, angled slightly downwards. People smile but aren’t too creeped out. Always open doors with your gun ready, at the edge of the door. Always turn corners wide in case they jump at you. “Clear” areas which might contain zombies with your eyes and point of aim. Move quickly, so most threats will be ahead of you, but still scan behind you from time to time. If you have any idea how cops and infantry clear a building during a raid, act like them.If you encounter zombies, move around them rather than engaging unless it’s a single zombie chasing an unarmed human et cetera. Keep your gun pointed at them but don’t draw attention to yourself. If they move towards you, shift your aim to the closest one’s face and yell “Get back,” “I’m gonna shoot you in the FACE,” or similar. Nerf guns drop a lot, so aiming for the head means you’re more likely to hit the body. Almost as importantly, it’s intimidating to have even a Nerf gun pointed at your face, and they may decide to leave you alone rather than spend 15 minutes stunned. You could try increasing this psychological advantage with hilarious jokes like “You don’t want to know where this dart’s been…” or “These darts are loaded with steel shot and leave a hell of a welt!” Haven’t tried it but it would be pretty funny if it actually worked. They’ll post angry facebook messages and we’ll laugh but always secretly wonder.

    yes.My tip:Use other people as recon. I barely avoided a horde earlier today by asking a random passerby if there were zombies lurking ahead. They laughed and said yeah, so I pursued an alternate route.

    Don’t fight if you can run, and don’t run if you can avoid the zombies altogether by taking another route.Always look over your shoulder. Better to seem paranoid than to be eaten.Travel in groups, preferably with other well armed humans if you can.
