How To Survive A Zombie Attack?

If you are unlucky enough to find yourself at ground zero on Z-Day, the following survival tips may increase your chances of staying alive (well at least until the sequel anyway).

Always Aim For The Head

A sure fire way to put down a Zombie permanently is to destroy the brain, when choosing a weapon fight the urge to get a gun only designed to impress your friends or one that's too heavy – remember you will need to carry it around with you. P.S. Hold back one bullet for yourself.



Stay Away From Windows

So you have found some shelter and your fellow survivors are discussing what to do next. Don't get to close to the idiot standing with his back to the unsecured window.



Run Like Hell

Mostly used for trips to the shops but legs come in useful when dealing with zombie attacks. They're free to use and you already know how to use them. If worst comes to worst, you can always run away to fight another day.



Hit The Road

Fact - Zombies like the city. There's more to see there and more people to eat. As soon as you think something strange might be happening, just pack up and move to the countryside. Find a nice field (not a forest as zombies will be able to sneak up on you) and stay there. Become a farmer and wait for it all to blow over.



Never say 'I'll be right back'

The first person to say 'I'll be right back' always gets murdered, or in this case, eaten. Keep your wits about you, stay with other people and if you find yourself alone – find some! Remember the saying safety in numbers? Just check they aren't already zombies.



Act like a Zombie

A very cunning way to avoid being eaten by a Zombie is to act like one yourself! The vacant stare, drooling an incoherent mumbling will make you fit in with any real zombies that break into your home. Don't worry about getting the act spot on, just remember the way you felt last weekend when you were hungover.



Decapitate

Decapitation is another sure fire way to kill a Zombie. Found at any good DIY shop, an axe is an excellent weapon for close quarter combat, it's also a great backup when your ammo starts running low.  It's sharp, heavy and packs an enormous wallop. Think of Gimli from the Lord of the Rings films when you're swinging and remember to put your weight into it.



Get Creative

So you have run out of bullets and you haven't got an axe, it's time to get creative. Anything that you swing or throw can be used as a weapon, made famous in the film Shaun of the Dead, the trusty cricket bat is a great option. Not only a heavy, blunt implement but also the handle grip is designed to prevent blisters. Why not get your friends to shout Four or Six to lighten the mood occasionally.



Don't Be A Hero

A good way to survive zombie attacks is to give them something else to chase down and eat – your friends. If you're in a crowd of people, stand in the middle. Just remember it's better to come up with the ideas and lead the group than to just be a follower. It's the person at the back of the group during chase scenes that gets eaten first.



Get Chuck Norris

If you are ever in a life or death situation, he's the man you want at your side. It's worth remembering though that you don't find Chuck Norris, Chuck Norris finds you.



If You Get Bitten Keep It A Secret

So while fighting off that last wave of the undead with your bare hands, you took one for the team. Luckily for you it was somewhere easy to conceal. It's just a scratch anyway, no point making a big deal about it.



Wait Until The Whole Thing Blows Over

In a similar fashion to moving to the countryside but a tad more British is to simply, put the kettle on, have a cup of tea (or even better get a lock in down the pub) and wait for it to all blow over. ''They're just making a fuss about nothing'' you can hear yourself saying.

This is dumb do not act like one as they can tell if you are alive or not.The best bet is to bunker down in the middle of no where and wait it out.Never go to any big store as this will be the first place they will look.If you are near a mountain then go up it as they are bad climbers.And never use guns as a first resort cause they will run out of ammo.And one last thing a crowbar is the best weapon to use

Don't go to a mall!! Its too big and you can't guard the entire place.  If you can't get out of the city.  Find the nearest police station or army base.  There will be plenty of food, guns, and cops.  If that fails, go to the nearest fire station (There will be food and weapon, but just imagine driving away in a fire truck.  Nothing can stop you)

And if that fails, find some survivors then try to go to the top of an apartment and seal down the top floor(hopefully its zombie-free).  After you know for sure that nothing can come in, go into each apartment and fill all the bathtubs with water then collect all the food you can.  Then start making signs for rescue.  Also collect mirrors and place them on the roof.  Hopefully in the new future, rescue helicopters will spot you.

The most important thing is not to lose hope.  Your rescue will come!!  I don't believe zombies can take over the military.  It might take some time for the military to begin rescue operations, so don't lose hope.

First find a safe place and an effective weapon. Gather enough supplies to last you a week then travel as far into no where as possible, mountians are good, as zombies are terrible climber but are actualy quite fast, the head is realy the most effective target in combat with a zomie, this is were the infection dwells and begins it infects he part of the brain that craves food and water, it is then replaced by the infection which causes a need for flesh as to keep the bodie re- animated. Any other place on the body is just as good as any other an arm is as good as a leg. Keep your self clean, keep your hair short,keep your clothes tight, and do not wear anything loos like jewelry. Carry lots of building material to keep your self protected but don't carry so much that they slow you down this mistake can and will risk or take your life. Shot guns baseball bats, chainsaws , axes, acid, bows and fire are all effective weapons agianst zombies

Run like the wind. Luckily, you will never have to worry about a zombie attack. However, if you find yourself being attacked by zombies, knock their head off. You must "disconnect" the brain from the body in order to kill them. At least that is what they say in the movies.

Remember that most zombies are the ones that are people unless you get mutant zombies from somewhere, anyhow, people are zombies. Unless they can bend metal bars and leap tall buildings, just remember that killing them should be easy enough when they are stupider versions of a person and last time I checked people can't run at 45 mph or chew through plate steel, Right?
Okay just checking, a good weapon is one that does its job.

Get a team together of no more then 4 people  preferably people you know and trust. Get non perishable food items like military rations (remember its not about taste its about surviving ramon noodles you can eat it raw and cooked, and twinkies those things never go bad. Get weapons lots of em long range and close range and a crap load of ammo. Never stay in one place to long they will find you. Keep moving at most stay in one place no longer than a week. Have at least one person a wake to keep watch at all times. Get a hybrid car these things make no sound great for stealth. Do these things and you should be good provided you don't do anything stupid.

See what you do is you find something sharp and you stick it in the zombies head. Or you could get a gun and shoot it in the head.

Keep your hair short.
Body hugging clothes because long skirts and billowy tops are easy for zombie hands to grab on to.

Zombies are simply people who were drugged with Dhatura and buried in shallow graves as dead until the Obeah man brings them up.  They are kept in a continued stupor state usually to do menial labor by periodic doses off the drug.  A zombie can follow simple instructions without question.  They frighten people,but are usually not dangerous, though their strength can cause harm if their master directs them to work violence on another person.  

The impairment on the intellect of the zombie is easily destroyed, and they become fully conscious again if they taste salt.  That is why Zombie masters take great care in feeding their charges never to allow salt to be added to their food. Salt wakes up the zombie.  Salt to a zombie is as sunlight to a vampire, or silver ions is to a lou garoe (were wolf).

Knowing this, if ever attacked by these creatures, which is very unlikely, you have only to rub salt in their mouth and they will awake.

Ok first you must approach the zombie slowly then quickly grab his Tonge and repeatedly run over it with a dump truck. Then tie his hands to his ears.
