5 Tips For Surviving The Zombie Apocalypse

The chances of a zombie apocalypse happening is extremely slim, but it’s not zero. There have been countless movies, comic books, TV shows, and more which have all showcased how people could survive if there were a zombie apocalypse. After going through all of the source material, we feel like we have a good handle on how to stay alive even when times are at their worst. Here are five tips for surviving the zombie apocalypse that probably won’t happen, but isn’t guaranteed to not happen.

Stick together

If you want to survive the zombie apocalypse, you’re going to need some help. Nobody wants to go through the impending zombie takeover alone. Once you separate friend from foe, keeping a tight-knit group of survivors, can drastically improve your chance of survival. Especially if that group is well-rounded and made up of survivors with helpful skill sets. Divvying up responsibilities and tasks will make your new community run smoothly. A little more manpower to fight against the flesh-eating zombies wouldn’t hurt either. 

Stock supplies

Once you and your group of fellow survivors have found a safe and secure place to call home, it’s important you hoard supplies and stock up as much as possible. Carefully plan and execute supply runs to gather medical supplies, shelf-stable food, seeds, water, clothing, and toiletries. Stock up on weapons, ammo, tools, and crafting supplies as well. Although you’ll likely create a routine and have a new normal, everything is uncertain, and you must prepare for anything. 

Arm yourself

Whether you carry firearms, blades, explosives, or any other weapons of choice, it’s vital, you and those around you stay armed as often as possible. Try to keep a variety of weapons on you, or near your person at all times. Place weapons at nearby checkpoints throughout your community in case of emergency. You can never have too many weapons or too much ammo. Your group would also benefit from placing silencers on your firearms, so you don’t cause a zombie swarm when you have to fire your weapons. Not only should you arm yourself with weapons, but any able-bodied person should also train themselves to fight, defend, and execute an escape plan if necessary.

Be quiet

It goes without saying, quite literally, silence is the key to survival. Zombies are highly sensitive and responsive to surrounding stimuli, such as lights and sounds. It’s crucial to keep as quiet as possible outside of your safe zone. That includes equipping your firearms with silencers, or practicing an alternative method of communication with those around you, keeping children, babies, and highly reactive and vocal members of your group in a secure area where they can’t be heard by passing zombies outside. If you’re smart, you can use this information to your advantage by setting traps and distracting zombies with loud noises and bright lights, by way of fireworks or flash-bangs. 

Become a jack of all trades

During the zombie apocalypse, you’ll have a lot of time on your hands. Sure, most of it will be used for survival, but it also allows plenty of time to learn important skills. Train yourself and others on how to perform simple medical procedures, how to raise crops, training to fight and handle weapons, alternative methods of communication, and how to build useful tools and items to benefit your survival and comfort. A skilled and intelligent group of survivors will have a much higher chance of long-term survival than a group of clueless and helpless ones. 

The Survival Guide: Ranking 5 Countries Based On How They Would Fare In A Zombie Apocalypse

As fans of zombie movies and TV shows know, the idea of a zombie apocalypse is both terrifying and intriguing. While it’s unlikely to happen in real life, it’s still fun to imagine how different countries would fare if such an event did occur.

In this article, we’ll rank 5 countries based on how well they would do in a zombie apocalypse. Keep in mind that this is all hypothetical and for entertainment purposes only.

1. United States

It’s no surprise that the United States tops our list. With its vast amount of guns and ammunition, as well as a strong military presence, the US has the resources to defend itself against hordes of zombies. Additionally, its size and diverse geography means there are plenty of places to hide out or fortify against the undead.

2. Russia

Russia also ranks high on our list due to its large land area and harsh climate. Its citizens are accustomed to surviving in extreme conditions, which would be an advantage during a zombie outbreak. Plus, Russia has plenty of remote areas where survivors could retreat to avoid being overrun by zombies.

3. Australia

While Australia may not have as many firearms as the US or Russia, it does have a unique advantage: its isolation from other continents. This means that if a zombie virus were to break out elsewhere in the world, Australia would have more time to prepare before it reached its shores. Additionally, Australia has a lot of uninhabited land that could serve as safe zones for survivors.

4. Iceland

Iceland may seem like an odd choice for this list, but hear us out. Iceland is one of the most sparsely populated countries in Europe with only around 350 thousand inhabitants spread across its vast territory; meaning there wouldn’t be many people who could turn into zombies in case of an outbreak. Furthermore Iceland’s location – far away from any densely populated areas – makes it less likely for zombies (or people fleeing them) will make their way here.

5. Japan

Japan comes last on our list due to its high population density and lack of access to firearms by civilians. However, Japan’s culture is very preparedness-oriented so chances are they already have some sort of plan for when things go south. Moreover, Japan’s island geography can act as an advantage since there aren’t many ways for zombies to get inside the country without being detected first.
