If you’re finding that the incessant hordes of zombies make your West Point supply runs an absolute chore, here are some tips to incorporate next time.
Picking the right starting safehouse can mean the difference between life and certain doom. So, if you can find one that is somewhat out of the way — and not in the center of town — you can move into the city at your own pace. Don’t be in such a rush to get downtown; move slowly and methodically, only advancing when you know you can survive the immediate obstacles.
As there are a ton of zombies to get through, it’s best to carve a path through without having to fight. If you can guide the horde through backstreets, and then do your best to lose them, you can possibly make it to your destination without wasting valuable resources. But, if you’re not a fan of slow, methodical warfare, you can always just nab some Molotov cocktails and immolate everything in sight. It’s entirely up to you, but whatever you choose will likely require patience. For what it’s worth, I believe in you.
