Top Ten Rules for Surviving a Zombie Outbreak

If zombie movies have ever taught us anything is that anything can happen during a zombie outbreak, knowing who to trust and knowing ways to kill off zombies without wasting precious ammo here are a few tips that may help you survive a zombie outbreak.
The Top Ten
1 Aim for the Head

It's common knowledge that destroying the brain is the fastest way to kill a zombie.

2 Maintain Ammo Count

Every bullet counts during an outbreak. It's never a good idea to go out guns blazing. There is nothing worse than being surrounded by zombies and having no ammo.

3 Stay Fit

Zombies are relentless. Staying in shape is the best way to live a longer life. The fat and the slow are the first to go.

Unless it's The Walking Dead, and they're slow.

4 If a Person Is Bit Dispose of Them Immediately

It doesn't matter who they are - a family member, a friend, or a loved one. Once a person is bitten, there's no avoiding it. They will turn into a zombie. Kill them before they kill you.

Too many people in movies and games have made the mistake of allowing an afflicted person to live.

5 Be Careful Who You Trust

It's always important to know who not to trust. Some people might seem helpful at the time but will betray you by stealing your supplies or leaving you behind.

Oh yeah, about that, you don't want to get betrayed.

6 Use Your Environment

Anything and everything that isn't nailed down can be used as a weapon.

7 Stay Away From Dark Places

Zombies tend to hang out in dark places such as train tunnels and abandoned houses.

If you enter a dark place, a zombie might be lurking in the shadows.

8 Basements Are a Deathtrap

When picking a safe house, make sure there is an emergency exit. While hiding in the basement may seem like a good idea, when zombies break through the door, there's no way out.

9 Working Together Is a Must

Night of the Living Dead taught us that teamwork is important for surviving a zombie attack. Not working together always ends in disaster.

10 Always Check the Backseat of a Car

If you ever need to travel, it's always wise to check the backseat of the car. Zombies are known for hiding there and jumping out when you least expect them to.

That should be number one! It would be awful if you got in your car and then a zombie came out of nowhere and killed you!

The Contenders
11 Always Make Sure a Zombie Is Really Dead

You should've gone for the head.

12 Choose a Reasonable Weapon

Guns are powerful and long-ranged, but will eventually run out of ammo. Keep something like a sword, as well as a low-ranged melee weapon with you at all times to ensure protection during dangerous situations.

13 Don't Use Butter Knives as Weapons

Wham bam shazam! No, really, why would anyone do that?

14 Get Your Gun

Pow pow pow, it's really reasonable to pull the trigger.

15 Use a Quiet Means of Transportation

Electric cars are good, and so are hybrids.

16 Don’t Be a Hero

If you do well, sacrifice is not always the best.

17 In Dangerous Situations Act and Dress Like a Zombie

Because they won't recognize you're a human.

18 Never Trust an Animal
19 Avoid Cities
20 Eliminate the Weakest Link
21 Use Quiet Weapons
22 Know Your Surroundings
23 Head for a Harbour

Commandeer a boat and sail away. Zombies can't swim, and even if they could, the sharks would get them.

24 Grab a Flying Machine

Preferably a hot air balloon or a helicopter, since they don't require a long runway to land safely.

25 Go to a Hill
