Surviving in the zombie apocalypse can be quite tough, particularly if you’re dealing with the kind of zombies that can only be dispatched with shots to the head. Headshot ZD gives you that exact task in a free-to-play, survival-action format, and it’s one of those games where it’s surprisingly easy to fail if you’re not careful. In the interest of saving you and your zombie team from being eaten alive, keep these tips in mind:
As you play Headshot ZD, you may run across survivors that will want to join your crew. In most zombie games, you might want to take these people under your wing, but Headshot ZD is not most zombie games. This is a game about survival, and the more people you bring into your settlement, the more mouths you have to feed. Unless a survivor has some unique weapon or really great stats, you might just want to keep your crew to one or two members, particularly in the early game.
Be an ad zombie
The source of Headshot ZD’s difficulty is primarily the scarcity of resources. You can survive every fight all you want, but if you don’t walk away with enough food, water, or other materials, your squad is toast. As a free-to-play game, Headshot ZD offers several ways for you to get more rewards for each level, and all of them involve watching ads. While this might not be what you want to do, it might just make the difference between living another day or being overwhelmed by the zombie horde.
When you go on missions in Headshot ZD, your main goal is to make it back in one piece, but that doesn’t amount to much if you take too much time. Each mission in the game has a timer, and letting it expire is just as bad as being bitten by a zombie: The level ends and you receive no rewards. So make sure you’re nailing those headshots while avoiding being hit, because otherwise you’ll be putting yourself in a tough spot.
Spend those bottlecaps
If you’re playing Headshot ZD and you’re banking your bottlecaps (the game’s premium currency), you’re doing it wrong. Although you may be saving up to buy an S ranked survivor or something else, it’s almost always better to spend your caps on the small, incremental upgrades that make things like gathering supplies more efficient. It may seem like you’re dumping your good premium currency down the drain doing this, but it actually helps you get further into the game, which can then allow you to earn the caps you need for those higher end survivors.
