Zombie Hunting 101
Caution. I can’t emphasize caution enough. If you think someone might be infected, shoot them in the head. Twice if you have the ammo to spare. If you think that guy shambling down the street is more than just the local drunk, shoot him. In the head, twice if you have the ammo to spare. That old crusty looking bum is either disoriented or undead. Don’t debate which one it is, just shoot him. See what I’m getting at here? If there is any doubt in your head, put two in theirs.
That’s why I’m still here. That’s why I hunt zombies successfully and also why I don’t have many friends. There’s not much room for friendship when your hunting buddy just took a big nasty bite on his jugular. When people know you’ll ventilate their skull in a second’s notice, they tend to just avoid you.
Reliable weaponry, good marksmanship, skill in close combat, a mobile lifestyle, and quick feet will get you far. Being a ruthless bastard that’s willing to accidentally kill a few of the living will get you the rest of the way.
