Zombie escape: how to? ================== There's a tutorial on this site covering zombie mod, but I did not find anyone covering zombie escape. So I in all my fanciness decided to share my experience with you tutorial readers. Five years of playing the mod have given me the best possible experience with different weapons and using tactics that can ensure my win. But since I usually only play on one zombie escape server I've decided to focus this tutorial around that servers functions. Table of contents ------------------ - Weapons - Pistols - Glock - USP 45 - P228 - Desert Eagle - Five Seven - Elites - Shotguns - M3 - XM1024 - SMG's - MAC 10 - TMP - MP5 - UMP 45 - P90 - Tactics - Running - Covering - Occasionally hiding - Basic rules to keep you alive Weapons ================== Pistols ------------------ ### Glock The glock is a fairly good weapon, it has the ammo and the good price point of $400. Although it has according to me more negative sides than positive sides, It's damage it really low and the knockback is close to non-existing. The burst mode is pushing back the zombies fairly good but I would stick to a better pistol. ### USP 45 The USP is too a fairly good weapon, it has a low price point of $500 but it leaks the possibilities to become good due to it's low damage output and ammo. The knockback is bigger than on the glock but it's overall not that good. ### P228 Hold on to your butts cause this is one of the best weapons to use. The P228 is by far my favorite weapon to use, the price isn't that much of an issue ($600) and it fires the .357 round, which damages around 157 on direct headshot. With this remotely high damage and .357 round the P228 has a lot of stopping power giving it the perfect knockback. Although it gets outmatched by the Desert eagle the P228 stands by my opinion above the Desert eagle with it's ammo capacity of 13. ### Desert Eagle One of the most popular guns in Zombie mod and escape, this monster has a lot of pushback and a lot of damage output, but. It's extremely slow. Coming in at $650 you get a lot of fire power for that price. This is by popular belief the best gun. ### Five Seven The most unpopular pistol, but why? high firing rate and large ammo capacity has to cover up the fact that headshot is only 99 damage? No. It has the same knockback as the USP so it does no mayor threat to the zombies. I would use this at a long range zombie escape map. ### Elites One of the most used pistols in zombie escape, having a total ammunition of 30 with a fast firing rate. One of the most damaging pistols overall with 177 damage per headshot. But there's one big negative side; the reload time is about 4 seconds long! Recommended usage: close encounters with a lot of teammates behind you. Shotguns ------------------ ### M3 The best shotgun, a high damage output on headshots with 174 damage PER PEBBLE! and it fires around 6-8 pebbles each slug. (only on zombie mod/escape though) The largest knockback of all weapons, if you see a flying zombie; then you've know there's a M3 close by. Even though it has the slow rate of fire due to the pump action it's still one of the best weapons to use in escape. Although I would not run with it, stick to your pistol. ### XM1014 Popular belief that auto shotguns are good, NEIN. You will not be able to control the recoil on this thing if you're shooting full auto, and when it's out of ammo it's more useless then the glock. Shooting with a minor recoil pause at the same length as the M3 pump can make this weapon usable. It has the highest damage per shot which is 228. More useless then useful I fear. Although during bossbattles on certain maps it is the best weapon overall! SMG's ------------------ ### MAC 10 Not the best SMG overall, combines a high damage per shot (on headshot) with a EXTREMELY fast RPM. Although it's has a big recoil so stick to something better. ### TMP Only thing I see positive with this; fast reload and fast RPM. Although after playing with it some more I can determine that it is a pure headshot machine! ### Mp5 One of the best, combining the damage, magazine and reload time. It's very fast and does not slow you down that much, you can run with this open handed. ### UMP 45 I've used the UMP, it's somewhat good, fairly slow but does a good amount of damage, 117. It's too very accurate. I used this weapon to knock the zombies down into the water on maps which on the water kills. So they die. Although the Mp5 is much better. ### P90 The weapon responsible for all those reloading fails. It has a large damage output and 50 round magazine which makes it very popular, Although sometimes it more negative then positive. People tend to sync their reloads you see. And then the zombies get to them and it's a zombie win. Tactics ================== I'm getting really tired of writing all this stuff so bear with me. Running ------------------ Running is what you'll do most in escape (DUH!) and is the most important phase of the game, if done correctly it can give you a big headstart of the zombies. During this phase I'm usually the one last in the line shooting the zombies behind me with the P228. STICK TO YOUR PISTOL! I'm very serious about this, save your primary ammo until you need to cover something. If you're new to the map stick to the players who seem to know their way. And of, Survival of the fittest? if there's a map with planks you have to go over which are above water; and the planks are breakable (ze_jurassicpark for example) try to be the first in line, when you're over the water and safe on the other side; destroy the plank. Survival of the fittest mate. Covering ------------------ Now you should stick to your primary weapon, if it's boxes you're covering and the case is that the zombies must jump over the boxes to get to you... Don't edge! stand far behind the boxes which gives you a more visual of the entire scene. some people might think it's actually better to stand next to the boxes. But no. Oh yeah, if you know the map. Try to save the newbies, more ct's is better then more zombies you know. Occasionally hiding ------------------ Got overwhelmed by zombies? hiding is the best answer to that. Stay in dark places which in you blend. Personally I really dislike hiding but if there's a chance I usually take it. If the zombies can't find me I'll go out of my hiding spot and countinue the escaple. Rules (in form of a list) ------------------ - Aim for the head - Running with your secondary is the best way' - Strafe climb - Strafe run - Avoid bathrooms (unless you're meant to go in there) - Stick to your teammates! more survivors is the best! --------------------------------------------------------------------------- I really hope this tutorial was some kind of help to you. See you at the escape ------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    You should add info about the M249, it's a good weapon. You should add info about the knife, it's always fun to knife zombies, and push them on humans :D With the Shotgun, a headshot can damage 700 HP to the zombie (try it on afk zombie). If you want to make a real table of content, like in my guide for cs:s (http://css.gamebanana.com/tuts/11385) just ask me.
