When to Use the Quick Turn

Aim at Zombies Behind You

Zombie attack behind
If you hear a zombie right behind you, using the quick turn will allow you to turn around and aim right at them as soon as possible. You can even quick turn while aiming down, making sure you do not waste any of your movement.

For Falling Back

Gain Distance
You can use the quick turn when you need to turn around and fall back quickly. Instead of slowly turning, you can quickly about-face and run away from enemies in bad situations. Using it again right after will allow you to face them again and go back on the offensive.

Mastering the quick turn will allow you to maximize your movement and make it harder for zombies to hurt you!

    • Anyone still alive? Hahahaha. I hope this pandemic doesn't evolve into a zombie apocalypse.

    • 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:
