It’s not a matter of if, but when.
We would be lying if we say that we’ve never thought of what it would be like if a zombie apocalypse DOES happen. And some of us would be really excited if it does (we’re looking at the Gamers).
So, we present you with a list of tips that may come in handy to survive the zombie apocalypse.
WATCH EVERY ZOMBIE MOVIE
Not just movies, but TV shows, video games, novels and a certain music video (‘cause this is THRILLER!) are all great guides to not just survival techniques but also great dance moves.
Gather as much info about the enemy as you can. Believe us, when the dead start roaming around, you’d be very happy that you watched those movies.
FIND A WEAPON
The first thing you must do when all goes to hell is to find a suitable weapon.We know that everyone would just love to play with machine guns and rifles, but let’s get real, we ain’t getting those.
Look for knives, baseball bats, crowbars, axes, screwdrivers and maybe if you’re really lucky, a sword. *EYES TWINKLE*
STOCK UP ON SUPPLIES
Horde the things that you will need – from medical supplies to food items. Because when you’re in the zombie apocalypse, zombies aren’t the only things that can kill you. Starvation is just as evil. Also, keep your own stock, because…
You may also need to learn how to grow food. But then we’ve all had the crash course through Farmville.
FIND A VEHICLE
If some of you are planning to emulate Daryl Dixon and want a bike, give up. A bike is a terrible, terrible idea.
The best vehicles to have during an apocalypse would be strong cars or trucks and if all else fails, have a bicycle ready because they don’t need fuels to help you.
GET THE RIGHT CLOTHES
Wearing the right clothes is important even in a post-apocalyptic world. Find the most sturdy boots or running shoes you own because you’d soon need those legs of yours. And do not forget to wear clothes that cover that delicious-looking (to the zombies) skin of yours.
PLAN YOUR ESCAPE
You must plan your escape routes beforehand. And always keep a few back-up plans in case of surprises. You NEVER want to be unprepared in an apocalypse. Keep a backpack ready with your stash of supplies and the moment you spot your first walker, you should be out the door on your way to your carefully chosen safe haven (which you should pick well in advance).
SEEK PROPER SHELTER, BARRICADE IT
If all goes well, you may find a place where you can survive – look for farms, mountains or islands. Take a vehicle and head towards that ocean; we have serious doubts about the zombie swimming skills. And when you find the perfect place, do NOT let some Governor screw things up for you.
FIND A GROUP
Do not trust just anyone. The end of the world brings out the worst in people. You may well find some Joffreys or Cannibals roaming around.
But having people that will watch your back is a necessity. Find people who contribute to your group and help you survive.
HOLD ONTO YOUR HUMANITY
Like we mentioned before, you may find some psychos on your adventure. Avoid them and protect yourself but try not to join them. Cannibalism may seem the easiest way out, but remember, you don’t know if people taste good. Why take the chance?
KEEP CALM AND KILL ZOMBIES
Now that you’re packed and ready, the only thing left is for you to keep calm and kill every one of the flesh-eating freaks you encounter. This is the day you’ve all been dreaming of so make use of the skills you learned while playing Left4Dead.
