Counter Strike, Garry’s Mod, TF2 etc.
The main goal of the game is to Escape or to Prevent the Humans from Escaping, This guide will cover on how to Escape onto the train like a tryhard Pro.
- The First Step
to make sure you don’t get Killed before the gates open, find a place to hide.
Once the gate is open make a run for the train and avoid the Zombies, Try sliding down slopes using Left Crtl then Jump when you reach the end of slope, you will gain some decent momentum. It’s a bit tricky to learn but once you got it those Zombies can’t reach you… unless they do the same… maybe just find a car instead.
- Are the zombies still outrunning You?
well.. they can outrun You but the Zombies can’t outrun BULLET. The Bullet has two purposes
1. To Push back the Zombies
If you have some guns on you and the Zombies are still going at it with You, just shoot them and they will go Flying! or Killing them is good too.
2. To leap tall buildings in a single bound (literally)
If you didn’t read the Tip on the loading screen you can shoot the Ground or anywhere in fact and it will give you a sudden boost in the air… and you can do this on a wall MULTIPLE times, So if a Med Station is in a high place just use BULLET and BAM! you’re 10 storeys high.
After you’ve gain some distance and you’re around 150m away from the train start looking for some guns (My preference is an AK47, Shotgun or SMG) or an airdrop might help you find some decent weapons like the Rocket launcher for example it can kill an entire swarm if your lucky.
- The Good Stuff,
You might be wondering why I said find some guns around 150m not during the start, Well that’s because I tend to find 1 Star pistols near the Gates (I could be wrong) so that’s no good, You want to find at least a 2-3 star weapons they hold more ammo. RELOAD TIME WILL KILL YOU so less of it is good, You can also find jars that contain temporary golden hearts and heal up every time you get hit by a zombie, You’ll have a better chance with three hearts instead of two or one.
- The Good Stuff,
Ok, you got your gear and you are ready to hop onto the train good… Now all you need to do is stay on the train.. ALIVE.
Teamwork is the most important aspect to surviving the trip If nobody has your back but the Zombie well good luck to you, Here are some tips on Teamwork.
Encourage your teammates to hop onto the Train early even if they don’t have all their gear, the sooner the better and less zombies too.
- Spread Out
If all of your Teammates are in the same place it is really easy to get separated by one Barrel or a Bomber so Spread out into Sections (A group in Back, Middle, Front will do nicely) The Train will have a less chance of stopping this way.
- Communication and Contribte
If your just standing around on the Train while your Teammates are being mauled by the Zombies you’re better off joining them, Instead why not help out and push back the Zombies from entering the Train or tell them which way the Zombies are coming from.
- The Common Zombies
These are just your ordinary Zombie…just aim for the head and you’ll be fine
These sneaky fellas will turn invisible for a few seconds and try to bite you or throw you off the Train, their plans mostly fail
When you hear that ticking noise AVOID THE BOMBER AT ALL COSTS whether it be by running or gunning it down it will EXPLODE and kill You and your Teammates.
Bombers are the most dangerous type of Zombie so far, They can even push other bombers when they explode towards you so be careful.
The Last Stretch
- STAY ON THE TRAIN
If you fall off and it stops your wasting precious Escape time but you can still escape while on the ground if your Teammates stay on the train until it arrives onto the station your FREE!
- Surrounded? No Problem
Remember when i told you that nothing can outrun BULLET? well here is your chance to prove it, if you’re surrounded try aiming at the ground and shoot while you jump it will boost you into the air and the train will still move and you might make it… maybe use a Rocket Launcher too.
- Avoid Bombers and Barrels
If you get hit by one of these while near the station your most likely screwed, so look up from time to time okay?
- Stay with your team
Most of your teammates have probably turned into Zombies but if you still have company stick with them! It’s better to die with others than to die alone.
