Defense with the BoomStick

(Disclaimer: This post is an ongoing story set in a world where zombies have taken over and people are fighting to survive anyway they can. Originally was a post of news and tip to help survivors make it one more day alive, but now has became a story of my fight after being bitten and partially cured to walk as half zombie among them.)

Another week gone by and more ground covered taking me closer to my next target.

Over the past week I've been pouring over the map I lifted off of those bandits that were chasing me down, deciding my path of attack and whom to target first. Most of their arms depots look to be about the heaviest fortified positions out of all of them, which makes complete sense. If you lose those supplies that can be game over. Figured it would be best to hit one or two of their smaller outposts and enclaves to get them guessing on where I might hit next and generally make life miserable for them all.

I headed off towards some outposts located a good distance away from the last battle I had with them so they wouldn’t have a chance to fortify or figure I would hit it first. As of now I'm on an outcropping overlooking one of the first small outpost on my list to hit, but it seems the map I grabbed hasn’t been updated recently as this place seems to have a few more guards and defenses. That throws a little monkey wrench in my plan in thinking this one was gonna be easy to take out, but I just have to add a little more caution on my part and try to let zombies soften them up for me.

I have seen groups of zombies here and there in the surrounding area on top of the pack that were at their gate, although they took care of them pretty easily. I think for a distraction to work I'll need a large group of zombies that they can’t dispatch too quickly that will allow me to get in and open them up from the inside.

I wonder if it's wrong to booby trap some of the zombies with explosives I have and use them to get close enough to the gate or wall and open it up that way. If the group is large enough it’s a good chance some of the booby-trapped zombies will make it in close enough to use the explosives; otherwise blowing them up will just destroy all of them.

Now with a plan in mind I need some bait to start rounding up zombies to put my plan into action. I just need to nab one of their scouts or lead a patrol off into the woods so I can take them out and use them as bait to lure as large number of zombies together as I can. Then use the explosives on some of the zombies, lure them back towards their outpost to get close to the wall and give me my opening.

I'll probably have to show myself to draw their fire away from the zombies for a bit and that's going to be the tough part- making sure I don’t get my own ass shot. I am kicking this plan into gear tomorrow and hopefully will be broadcasting some good news for next week. Until then keep surviving.
