In the movies and on TV shows like the Walking Dead people pop off head shots like it was the easiest thing in the world to do. Within minutes of picking up a gun for the first time they are able to pop multiple zombies in the head while running backwards down a hill carrying a wounded friend. In the real world it’s a bit harder to hit those head shots every time. So although a good shot to the head is still the best way to deal with zombies it’s not the only way, which brings me to crackers.
There is an old saying, I don’t know where it’s from so I’ll leave it to you to Google it, that goes: If your enemy can’t see, he can’t fight; If your enemy can’t breath, he can’t fight; If your enemy can’t stand, he can’t fight. Breathing isn’t really a problem for zombies and blinding is a lot harder than it seems. You can’t keep throwing sand in zombies eyes forever after all. But a good solid crack to the shins will make it impossible for them to stand making them a lot slower, more vulnerable and easy to take out. A single shot to the head with a bat or club may or may not do the trick as some people have quite strong skulls. But if you aren’t able to take out the zombies head in one blow, a good smashed jaw will sure make it a lot harder for it to bite anyone.
