No matter how you’re surviving in the zombie age, you want a few scavengers in your group. (Think Glen on the Walking Dead.)

Scavengers are able to find things, get them, and get out again without causing a huge noise or mess. They are great at sneaking about quietly and always travel light. Scavengers are often trying to avoid confrontation. They’ll hide out, maybe build a little nest someplace secure, but aren’t likely to stay in one place for very long. They go where the supplies take them. The bad thing about scavengers is that since they are often on the move they are more likely to have encounters with zombies of all types. Out of those encounters they aren’t going to actually stop that many zombies. So it’s possible they would lead zombies into an area where you are hiding out or even back to their own camp if they are part of a group.

  1. in some instances, scavengers eat things that even a zombie would find unsettling. Have you ever seen what crabs, lobsters and pigs eat? Billy goats wouldn’t even touch their food groups! 🙂


    1. True that!

      Once survival is really at stake it’s incredible what people will resort to. I’ve read accounts of people in Germany at the end of the war boiling wallpaper to get at the horse glue and the cannibalism that was rampant in Lenningrad.
