Different weapons are given to you in this game and you have to sue these weapons to kill the zombies and escort the civilians to the end point. The four basic weapons in the game are Pistol, Uzi, Shotgun and Grenade. You will find the details of these weapons below:
It is the primary weapon in the game and you will get this weapon in the start of the game. The pistol has unlimited ammunition and this means that you do not have to locate the ammunition boxes to refill your ammunition. The pistol bullets have low damage and you will have to shoot the zombies four times in order to kill them.
The Uzi machine gun can shoot faster and kill zombies easily. It will kill the zombies in just 3 shots. However, the gun will be unlocked when you reach second level. You will get 100 bullets in a magazine and you will have to refill the bullets by locating the nearest ammunition box.
Shotgun is a highly potent gun and can kill the zombie with only two shots. It is more effective than the pistol and the Uzi machine gun. However, you will get less number of bullets in this gun and you will have to go to the ammunition box more often to get your gun refilled.
Grenades are hard to land but they can kill one or more zombies. You need to practice a lot to throw the grenades effectively. You can only use the grenades once they are unlocked after level 6.
There are three ammunition boxes in the map and you need to locate them to get your bullets refilled. You can easily pass the stages with the help of good positioning and a pistol.
