It should go without saying but you will absolutely need one of these. While we suggest a shotgun, sniper rifles and crossbows are also good options. Just remember that each one has its drawbacks. Shotguns are relatively easy to get your hands on as every Wal-Mart stocks them (if you can’t find a Wal-Mart though, just find a redneck, they’ll probably have several). Sniper rifles and crossbows can be a bit harder to find but its well worth it if you don’t want to get zombie guts on your clothes. Otherwise you’ll probably be interested in…




Guts on your clothes are one thing but guts in your eye are another.

With all of these weapons hanging from your belt walking around is bound to be a hassle. Although there are numerous options available to you, tanks and monster trucks are probably going to be your best bets. Whatever you do though, avoid school busses!!!

Busses are slow, they can’t go off road, and there are always zombies hiding under the seats.




Depending on the type of outbreak, the virus may be airborne. Even if it isn’t though, keep in mind that you are going to be slashing your way through hordes of rotting dead people. Trust us…your nose will thank you.
