    Hopefully I'm not necroing this thread.
    My preferred method is roadkill, molotovs and melee. guns are something I'm not good with aiming, but are handy when scavenging in shops and stuff.

    Really? Lol its my favorite section! :eek:
    Everything else feels like people...just...Talking...:(
     
  5. roadkill. relative safety, and usually efficient. I like firearms too, but headshots are a little tricky in more hectic fights and sniping doesn't really work since hits don't seem register until the zombie is mid range. I like melee, but it isn't always the best option for me. I tend to have trouble fighting Biguns alone, and I seem to run into more than other people when I'm out and about. I'd rather peace out than take my chances beating an undead hippopotamus with a fancy stick.

    Stealth Kills Are OP. Not to mention I have at least 2x more inventory slots due to refusing a gun or melee weapon. My fists don't break. Bloaters are the only worry, but you can casually stroll away from them.

    I love tossing a molotov, or a bomb, or putting a round through a propane tank. Very efficient, and quite safe. Plus, I can usually be elsewhere before the zed mob decends to investigate.

    I've not had a good relationship with whistling box mines. Zeds don't spawn unless you are nearby (except Too Many Hordes), so you have to stick around to get them to be attracted to the noisemaker. By the time the mine goes off and blows up 10-20 zeds, the additional 30 attracted are close enough to see me and swarm me. I've lost several survivors that way.

    SpinKick into low wall=kill: second favorite method!

    5/6: attempting to get better at the omnidirectional stealth kill. Looks awesome and levels fighting, wits, and reflex/powerhouse.

    As advantageous as a pistol is in the back pocket, nothing beats the pure thrill of pulverizing a zed's head with an axe or slicing it down to size with a katana.
    Of course, I'd only buy and use Zombie Tools for strict melee stuff. They make solid blades.

    Headshots with a silenced, scoped rifle. I hate tipping off Ferals. My whole strategy in SoD is to avoid them or get them from a distance... a long one.

    Gee, my favorite methods of fighting the "life-impaired" ?


    1) Militarized and Oh so cooperative - Robots !
    Excuse me.... "Yes Sgt. DXC-22 ?"
    "SIR ! Requesting re-armament, oil change, and extensive maintenance SIR !"
    "Didn't your unit clear the city yet ?"
    "SIR NO SIR ! - Enemy hostiles receiving reinforcements SIR !"
    " #@ $ % * !"

    * https://forums.undeadlabs.com/threads/silly-suggestion-for-games-state-of-decay.52330/#post-761625


    2) Death from Above !
    Step one.... bait hordes into a clear space....then direct my FIRE BREATHING DRAGON TO ATTACK !
    * What's that ? Whaddya MEAN there's no magic based attacks ? !!!
    " #@ $ % * !"


    * ( Deep breathing and some reflecting on the challenges of this partly "reality based" situation..... )

    Okay....so you're telling me that this is a world where Science rules right ? Except - no one's explained how the revenants keep coming in infinite number....and what keeps them going.


    3) Okay FINE ! ! New plan ! We get mad scientists to develop GIANT RAVENOUS RAVENS which like to eat dead things ! And turn them loose on the undead !

    * What's that ? You say it would take too long, cost too much, there's no resources, no mad scientists available and the Ravens might turn on us too ?

    " #@ $ % * !"


    4) Okay FINE ! I choose FIRE !

    One of the reasons I keep coming back to this game is the melee combat. Especially a fully beefed fighter/cardio wielding a blunt or blade, going to town on 10+ zeds, shucking and jiving, 1-hit-killing, heads popping. Looking like a damn samurai warrior. That's badass...

    Using explosives is thrilling too. There's nothing like seeing a dozen or more just disappear into pink mist while the rest go flyin' appendages akimbo.
