How to Use Bricks

How to Use - Brick.jpg
Bricks are generally used for distracting or misdirecting infected and human enemies. They can be thrown on the ground to create noise or break glass windows to open up new routes. This can cause enemies to group up on that area where you can easily sneak by them or kill them all at once using the tools you crafted. However, if you are playing more aggressively, you can also throw them directly to the enemy's head and stun them for a few seconds. Stunning them with a brick will make them vulnerable to your grab and strike attacks.

Keep in mind that they can work on hidden traps too! You can throw them on the tripwire or the claymore itself to trigger the traps without taking damage.

How to Get Bricks

Pick up from the ground!

Bricks can sometimes be found lying around on the ground, so pick it up if you see one. Only one item of this type can be held at a time, so be sure and use them, or the other ones you see will go to waste!

    • I’m more of a stealth player so I didn’t enjoy the boss fight in the hospital. One touch and you’re dead, that’s not enjoyable or realistic. Might as well run outside and kick a bear. I’d get the same thing happen, dead. Too much story in this game as well, I feel like it’s hours of videos that takes away from the game play. Just give me the details and move it along. I don’t need to know who’s screwing who.
