Has this ever happened to you? You’re taking down zombies left and right when your weapon suddenly gets jammed in the oncoming zombie. You pull and you tug but you just can’t get it free. With all the other zombies swarming towards you, you run off losing your pointy stick or whatever it was.
Hey, everyone has to cut and run some time but your beloved crowbar or pool stick is still out there somewhere, jammed in a zed head wandering about with it.
Some zombies will take a lot of hits and keep on going. This is especially true in the early days of an outbreak when people haven’t figured out they should be aiming for the head yet. So you might come across zombies that are riddled with bullet holes or stuck through with tons of weapons like sticks or arrows.
They can pose an extra threat in that they are harder to get close to just like a porcupine with its prickly spines sticking out all over. The best policy for dealing with them is to keep your distance and pop them in the head from there.
