The 10 Most Important Zombie Apocalypse Survival Tactics

Have you ever been watching a zombie apocalypse film or television series where you felt compelled to point out the oversights the survivors are making? You've got company.

A Redditor recently asked, “What are some essential facts people seem to ignore if a zombie apocalypse ever did happen?” Most everyone agreed that you would be a zombie and not a survivor. Here are the best responses.

Such-Reputation80 stated, “If you're dependent on meds to keep you going, you'll probably be the first to go.”

If You're on Meds, You're a Goner

Another user said, “The best place to get medical supplies will not be a hospital, drug store, or pharmacy. Those will all be looted. So instead, your best bet will be nursing homes and retirement villages.”

Medical Supply Locations

Redditor badb-crow shared, “A lot of people seem to forget every facet of survival that doesn't involve killing zombies. Like, can you produce textiles? Sew? Know how to preserve food? If not, you'll freeze and starve before the zombies get you.”

Basic Survival Skills

One Redditor expressed, “A third of the population will probably deny the existence of zombies, and another third will probably try to fight for ‘zombie rights' because humanity as a whole is stupid.”

Population Hysteria

Another user said, “It depends on the kind of zombie. World War Z zombies? You're screwed, sorry. Now, The Walking Dead zombies? One-on-one, while armed, I think you'd be ok."

The Difficulty in Killing Zombies

BrokenEye4945 replied, “Islands. Seriously, all you need to do is go to a remote or low-populated island only accessible by boat or rarely by plane, and you'll be much safer. Do you think zombies have the brain power, energy, strength, and knowledge of how to swim or operate a boat?”
