Tips on Raiding schools?


#1

So i raided a school but wss probably stick there for hours just killing 1 enemy at a time. What are some AoE methods for the next school? I even used a rocket launcher(on my self) and it didnt even kill most of them. Dumb move I know, but the horde was pretty big


#2

I have come to love chain lighting. Also Fencing and Aikido have defensive moves which means you can kill multiple enemies in a turn.


#3

Ever since I slapped a couple of pulse lasers on my APC, I’ve taken to driving up to hordes, lighting up a smoke, putting on some music and watching the light show. Good fun.


#4

I personally use UPS rifles and put on a blindfold to wait several hours for them all to die.


#5

I actually recall having good luck with a handful of pipe bombs. I’m surprised the rocket launcher didn’t help you.


#6

I just learned the joy of a pulse laser turret on an apc. What fun!


#7

Use traps. A nice field of nailboards does wonders, as do a handful of blade traps, or even just dump some bottles of gasoline and light it up when the swarm gets into the pools of gas.

Or you could get a vehicle and put some rams on it and use car-fu.


#8

For early game I’d just lead them into fire and throw Molotov’s in the horde, just circle around the flames and the zombies will run through and get themselves killed.


#9

When I need to clear a big building, regardless of how far I’ve progressed in the game, I grab a vehicle. I just drive up and down the road out front as the enemies spill out and run down as many of them as I can. When the flow slows to a trickle, or when the engine falls out of the car (or, god forbid, if enough time has passed and they’re starting to rez), I’ll start using a bow to kite the remnants.

Eventually it becomes what you described, just whacking them with my various sharp tools as I explore.


#10

What is the point? Aside from fun…

Burning the building down does a pretty good job if you don’t want the loot. Which usually sucks anyway.


#11

A few molotovs to clear out the groups outside and a couple of spike board traps will practically kill everything for you.

Schools spawn large amounts of weak Z’s so if you take a second to figure out where they are going to be coming from, (hallway etc.) make some basic preparations and, are patient, schools are actually really safe raid targets.


#12

If I recall, the first time I cleared a school I got various drugs from the students, which was the main haul. Secondarily, there were a lot of books I didn’t have. Pretty sure they were basic books, but I remember being pleased with how many I found.


#13

Schools are basically good for drugs, candy, books, and loads of electronic parts. If you get lucky you can also get chemistry stuff if there’s chem labs there.


#14

Some of the best books in game can be found in the library. Its usually one fo the first locations I look for in game.
