So, how do you kill a zombie? This guide is going to focus on effective techniques and methods to help you kill the undead, especially on amazing gaming servers like PA-RP and its DayZ counterpart! So focus, learn, and feel free to ask questions in the comment section below, but remember, practice makes perfect, so go at it!
There are several effective techniques to killing zombies, some more fun than others of course and some way more efficient, which technique and method you end up utilizing comes down to preference, because they all work pretty well, and I’m going to start off with the least effective but more ‘fun’ to use weapons..
These include shovels, baseball bats, golf clubs, hell if you can get your hands on a pool stick or a even a large enough dildo, then you’re good to go. The problem with using melee weapons is that you’re more than likely going to come into contact with the zombie, even if you do use a knife, sword or freakin axe, chances are you might get scratched or bit, so unless you’re very experienced, keep Melee weapons handy to finish off a paralyzed zombie. Personally I take a shovel to a zombies head after I’ve shot it a few times to make sure it’s nicely brutalized.
Now just because you have a hand gun or assault rifle, doesn’t mean you’re going to survive for long. The thing is if you end up needing to use a gun of sorts, desert eagles, shotguns, ak47’s, whatever it may be, you are at risk of doing 2 things. First, you slow down because, well, you spot a zombie, zombie starts running after you, you run, then you’re forced to stop, turn, unholster your weapons and then shoot praying your aim is decent. If it’s not the zombie catches up to you and you get owned. The second thing you do is attract other zombies in the area with the sound, or worse, bandits. The best thing to do in these situations is to use your weapons as a last resort, your primary objective should be to get to safety, high ground usually works, not all zombies can jump so climb onto a low building’s roof, then and only then consider shooting the zombie if it’s necessary to get away.
Before you think you’re good to go, you have to be careful of the types of zombies you’re going up against. Is it a noob zombie with little to no experience? Maybe it’s an aggressive, extremely dangerous zombie? What if it’s an injured zombie that happens to be slow and easy to kill? The only way to test the type of zombie is to plan a running route, run towards a rooftop you can get onto easily and let the zombie follow you or see you and then watch how it reacts. I know, you’re the bait, I mean you could let your friends try it and haha, you know, decide if it’s worth the risk based on whether or not they get their asses eaten, but it’s important to distinguish what class of zombie you’re dealing with before you approach one!
It doesn’t matter if you’re on a walking dead roleplay server, a dayz server, or wherever, you need that essential zombie survival kit, without it, you’re screwed. What does the ultimate survival kit contain? Well, food and water but that’s a no brainer, the main things are: A weapon (guns or melee, preferably both), medical kits that include bandages and possibly medication of sorts, a map or compass so that you don’t get lost, and matches unless you can start a fire by rubbing two sticks together.
