Strategies are overarching themes, plans or ideas. Tactics are more localized, and specific actions. For the purposes of this wiki, they are used more or less interchangably

General Strategies

  • Aim accurately and at the head of the zombie.
  • Stay together.
  • Watch your corners and your six.
  • Travel during the day, zombies can see you day or night. At least during the day you can see them.
  • Zombies don't feel fear, why should you?
  • Don't hesitate, this can only leave you dead...or undead.
  • Don't waste ammo in celebration of a victory, there will be plenty more of them to fight.
