Can’t decide between a gun and a melee weapon in The Walking Dead Social Game? Here’s a simple rundown for both options.
The Pros: Melee weapons, used in hand-to-hand combat, are excellent for striking walkers. The BASEBALL BAT is the easiest to use and the AXE offers a good chance of killing the zombie the first turn. You can also use fun IMPROVISED weapons like a cast iron frying pan — who wouldn’t want to hit a zombie with one of those?
The Cons: There’s no hiding when using melee weapons; you’ll need to be very close to a walker to kill it. The KNIFE is difficult to use and your chances of killing the zombie the first time are very low.
The Pros: Guns are not just for shooting; they can all be used to strike zombies so you save on ammo. The SHOTGUN is the easiest to use and offers the highest chance of shooting the zombie the first turn. The RIFLE is powerful at long-range and gives you the most room between you and walkers.
The Cons: You’ll need to be careful as the sound of gun shots will lure more walkers towards you. The PISTOL is the hardest gun to master and you may not kill the zombie the first time around. Yikes!Read More
