If you saw my post on hordes you might have spotted this rotter at the front of the crowd.
I’m not much of a gun fan but when the zombies come around it’s time to use whatever weapons are at hand and a shotgun is a whole lot more than just a board with a nail in it. It’s a powerful way to take out a walker fast. Depending on range and your own skills with the weapon you might end up just slowing the zombie down or immobilizing it which also has it’s advantages. The down side is that you have to actually have a good weapon, keep it in good condition, and have a supply of ammo. Those aren’t always the easiest things to come by when supplies are short.
