Tip of the Day: suggestions


#41

Here’s a few good ones:
“If you see a zombie grenadier fall in battle, run for your life!”
(clears up confusion about non-intuitive game mechanics)
“That gas mask is useless unless you activate the filter.”
“Doors make great temporary roadblocks when you need to make a quick getaway.”
“Can’t find a room to spend the night? Sleep in the seat of a car. Even better, add a blanket and pillow.”
“Remember, zombies chasing you are dumb. Use terrain to your advantage, it can save your life.”
“A zombie with it’s brain intact can come back to haunt you. Never forget to smash their heads.”

Actually you have to smash the corpse, not just the head. These are blob-animated zombies, not romero zombies.


#43

Also some zombies are smarter than others and will try to avoid inconvenient terrain if possible. (Common ones are runners)


#44

Understood, but there’s really no game mechanic difference between smashing the corpse or the head. I was trying to word it in a way that would still convey the action you should take without going out of character. I suppose it could be reworded though.
“An intact zombie can come back to haunt you. Never forget to smash them to a pulp.”

Yes some zombies are smarter and try and avoid terrain, but the tip is designed to get new players to think about the terrain around them, and use it to their advantage in battle instead of the terrain working against them. If there’s a better way to word that, I’m open to suggestions. Something like, “Terrain can turn the tide of a battle, make sure you use it against your enemies, lest it be used against you.”

“even when rotten, you can still ferment Juice and milk into something useful.”


#46

Hungrier, than usual? Natural oils can help.


#47

A screwdriver a day keeps the scurvy away!

(from own experience)


#48

Don’t get caught with your pants down - There’s no toilet paper anymore anyway.


#49

“I hear there’s strange berries around I hear they are rather filling for their size.”

Referring to the marloss berries, seed, and gelatin that come from the mushrooms.


#50

“Be wary of anything deeper than your average basement.” (i.e. labs + mines)


#51

Why is a mine or lab so bad?
I don’t have much trouble with them for the most part.


#52

They still do contain dangers that need a little preparing
