“Ask Bast” Q & A
A zombie infection is 100% fatal. If someone has been bitten, you can guarantee that they are infected. The timing of an infection may vary from person to person, but it will be very similar.
That’s a great question Isaiah and definitely one to consider carefully. In this case, I like to think of the old saying “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”
That’s a great point, and one thing that’s important to remember about firearms, they only work if you have ammo! While having readily available ammunition is a great benefit of the .22 rifle, I wouldn’t call it the BEST gun for dealing with the Dead Zeds.
You make a very good point and asked a very good question. I do agree that home is a good place to stay — to a certain point — at least in my opinion. But it’s hard to say exactly how long until you access the situation you’re in. It will be different for every home.
That’s a good question, but unfortunately, the answer is that it’s practically impossible to survive a zombie bite. Once you’re bitten, you’re as good as dead. Before you die and reanimate, go ahead and start saying good-bye to your loved ones.
The only known way for a zombie to form is a plant called Solanum. It is very rare and can only be traced back in a few cases. However, if you watch the movies, zombies can arise from other ways, the most common being a government virus or the simple “no one knows”. Sometimes Hollywood will through in the occasional Black Magic.
The absolute best place to seek refuge is an offshore oil rig. Zombies can’t swim, so you’ll be safe. Workers are meant to stay on off shore oil rigs for months at a time, so you know there will be food and medical supplies.
There are several ways do defeat a zombie. You have hand-to-hand combat, silent ranged weapons, and full-on firearms. Firearms may not be the best because they are loud and may attract more zombies.
