Guest Expressed: “10 Tips for Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse”

Zombies are coming and this blog has already given advice on how to fight them. Today’s guest – Daniel Crieg – gives us even more tips on surviving the inevitable Zombie Apocalypse. Enter Daniel:

What if the fictional zombie attacks became a reality? Well, it is better to assume that zombies are for real to improve your defences rather than being caught off guard believing that they don’t exist. So to vamp you up, let us discuss 10 tips that would help you get through the zombie apocalypse that you have always been afraid of happening.

Secure As Many Weapons As You Can

First and foremost, you will need weapons and they may seem pretty scarce when the day of the zombie outbreak comes. So better yet, buy as many guns, ammo and grenades in advance. You should have some daggers too for possible close combat against single zombies because you would want to save your bullets for a wave of them that you will most likely face in the long run.

Wear Running Shoes With High Quality

Rather than wearing wet proof boots just like what you’ve seen in the zombie outbreak movies you have watched, wear comfortable and durable running shoes. You will definitely have a lot of running to do, so make sure what you’re putting on isn’t that heavy and won’t tear off that easily either.

Develop A Stone Heart

One of the most unfortunate possibilities about a zombie outbreak is that one or many of your loved ones could get infected. This is a weakness that you must overcome if you want to save yourself, as well as to be able to save others out there for human salvation.

Buy The Best Armour Your Money Can Get

You can’t just let a single scratch or bite from a zombie end your battle for survival. So, make sure that you’ll get the best armour there is that is bite proof and lightweight. Perhaps a chainmail would be your best option. Also wear a facemask and goggles because they will usually go for blinding you with their sharp pointed nails.

Strengthen Your Defences At Home

Zombies are dead and they don’t really care if they smash their heads and scab themselves just to breakthrough your home. For that reason, strengthen your doors and windows by nailing them with two by fours which should hold the zombies off for long. Set up an alarm system that will warn you if there are zombies outside so that you can ready yourself for an escape.

Have Yourself Occupied

Aside from running, you will have to find new places where you can acquire some weapon reloads every now and then. Also, kill as many zombies as you can or just enough by shooting their heads. Somehow, that would partially clear the coast for you to move on towards your next destination.

Always Be Friendly To Your Co-Survivors

You’ll need all the help you can get, so make sure every survivor you meet is on your side by being a good leader and at the same time, a true companion. That way, there will be great coordination to make your plans work.

Stay Outside The Cities

When you enter cities, you and your team could end up being outnumbered by zombies popping out of buildings. So as much as possible, stay out of the cities and just travel from village to village to increase your chances of survival.

Set The Forests On Fire

If there are policemen left, they surely wouldn’t mind seeing the forests lit on fire. That can help burn down a massive amount of zombies in a short period of time.

Keep Your Hopes Up

Last but not the least, don’t let anything let you down even if you have to kill your infected best friend or any loved one. There’s nothing really you can do about it. Be strong inside, always have faith and be determined to become one of those who would be repopulating the world once the zombie apocalypse is finally over.

    ummmmmmm……… I think I would go the hand grenade way. I don’t want to get up close and personal.

    I admit I know very little about Zombies, but  how do you kill something that is already dead ? If they lose their heads  due to a gun shot blast do they die, then?  Is that like when vampires have a wooden stake driven through the heart?  Please, pardon my ignorance. I have only come here seeking knowledge.


    • I’m glad you ask. Zombie killing is a dangerously under-researched topic and we need far more investigation to give conclusive answers. I would suggest gathering some empirical data with your local zombies and let me know of your findings!

         @Daniel Nest Wikipedia says you can kill them by feeding them salt?  Yes, I actually did research and yes, I have too much time on my hands.  But ,how to get close enough to a zombie to feed him the salt?…..hmmm…….needs more research…… (If you have no scruples you could sprinkle it on the guy  next to you, trip him up ,and when the zombies chow down…problem solved.)


      • I’m digging the brainstorm going on here…mix salt with brains (zombies love brains I’m told) and you’ve got yourself some regular zombie poison!
