Tip of the week: Taking out Zombies

Zombies—they will stop at nothing to knock you off track and slow you down. If it is one thing that our rival teams, the Dragons and the Scorpions can agree on, it is that these undead pests can prove to be somewhat of a nuisance when they invade the racetrack. So whether you are the most skilled Driver or the newest of newbies, these tips will help you deal with those pestering Zombies!

You can eliminate Zombies with powerful attacks, quick attacks, or just by running them over—whatever your style may be.

Powerful attacks have a big blast radius that packs a hefty punch to damage Zombies. Use this attack to break up larger groups of Zombies or to take down bigger Zombie foes. Is there a Zombie mob blocking your way? No problem—you can clear your way through! Just be careful. Since this attack involves less ammo and has a longer reloading time, accuracy is key.

A Quick attack does exactly what its name involves—it quickly fires ammo to keep our enemy Zombies back. This attack may deal less damage on the enemy, but these weapons hold more ammo, so missing a target or two will not cost you. Be sure to keep moving when you attempt to clear out a large horde. Since you will be shelling out less damage, you will want to make a quick escape if you become surrounded.

Finally, you can live life on the edge and wield your vehicle as weapon! Simply push the pedal to the metal and mow down Zombies by running them over. It may take a little longer to power through a group of Zombies, but you will be able to make a quick getaway if you need to and it is simply fun!

Now you are prepared to survive a Zombie attack. Keep up your speed and stay on the move. Get out there and keep that Zombie infestation under control.
