    Zombie Headshot
    Shoot their heads to deal the most damage to them and you can instantly kill some zombies if you land a critical hit. Doing this will also save you ammo compared to shooting their bodies.

    Leg Shots

    You can also shoot them in their legs to make them fall down. Once downed, you can easily run past them and ignore them if you'd like. It is also possible to shoot off their legs, causing them to crawl. Their decreased movement speed will make them much easier to avoid.

    Make Use of Environmental Traps

    Environmental Trap
    You can easily deal with multiple zombies if you lure them near an environmental trap. You can shoot Red Barrels or Generators to quickly deal with a herd of zombies coming after you.

    Counterattack after a Perfect Dodge

    Perfect Dodge Counter
    After doing a perfect dodge, you can counterattack by quickly aiming your gun or knife at them while time is slowed down.

      • I can see marketing elements in the new part of the game. Currently, it is becoming more and more popular. All in all, I am not surprised it is a way to get extra money for game developers. For more information on marketing in games, see this article:
