Into the Dead 2 is an endless gunner, of sorts, with a lot of grit and satisfying gunplay behind it. The game looks amazing, and tells an effective story to boot. Plus, it has some quality voice acting behind it to really bring the story to life.
Though it's an endless runner-esque game, things can get tough out there when hundreds of zombies are ganging up on you. Here are a few tips to help you survive every level.
Conserve your ammo
Ammo is hard to come by in the post-apocalyptic world, so save it where you can. You don't have to shoot every zombie you see. If there is room between zombies, you can usually safely run between them. Only shoot when you're staring down a zombie face to face, otherwise you could end up in trouble.
It's also a good idea to look ahead for green glowing ammo crates so you don't miss any. Run through these to restock.
Play the daily trials and complete stage challenges
You can play daily trials that don't cost any stamina for some extra rewards. Plus, this bonus game mode is a great way to practice using different guns. Use the trials as an opportunity to hone your skills.
On top of that, each stage in a level has a series of challenges for you to complete -- i.e. shoot two zombies with one shot, kill 20 zombies, etc. Complete these little achievements and you could earn a free lockbox containing valuable weapon parts.
Be careful when reloading
Some weapons have a slower reload time than others, and the game will reload automatically. Be careful when using weapons like the shotgun, which requires a reload after every shot. You're completely defenseless while reloading, which can lead very quickly to your death. Be sure to swap between weapons if you're in a tight spot and be on the lookout for clusters of zombies.
Pay attention to your surroundings
Above all, always pay attention to your surroundings. Zombies may be hiding in unexpected places. They could be lying in the shadow of a car, or hiding behind a hill unseen, and haystacks are especially tricky spots. Be aware of your blind spots, pay attention to what's coming up next, and note where zombies might be clustering. It could make all of the difference.
