10 Foolproof Ways To Survive A Zombie Apocalypse

Just in case one happens... Which it definitely, absolutely will one day. It's science.

1. Take your home security to the next level.

This will give you a short window to stall and prep yourself. Sure, barricading a door shut may take a lot of time to do and potentially draw them closer with noise, but if you pull it off, you can have a secret hideout where they can’t get you.

2. Go retro with paper maps and compasses.

If technology fails you, you’ll still be covered. Honestly, even if technology doesn’t fail you, you should really learn how to read a map and a compass.

3. Train like a warrior... / Via

Do you really want to be the person who didn’t survive because you couldn’t run faster than a limping zombie?

4. ...and dress like one too.

Throw on waterproof shoes and protect your body with armor. You might as well dress the part if you're battling a zombie apocalypse.

5. Do NOT stop checking your social media feeds.


Amongst mass hysteria, this is the fastest way to stay up to date on rescue team locations, crowded routes, and detours.

6. Harness the power of fiyaaahh.


Teach yourself to start a fire without a match. You’ll need to stay warm after nightfall.

7. Travel on rooftops.

If the zombies don't see you, they won't come after you.

8. Know how to improvise a first aid kit.

Can't find one? It's OK! It'll work to your advantage when you can clean out a wound with household products. In these pressing matters, you need to be as resourceful as possible.

9. Find a boat to sail away on the open seas.

Zombies can't swim -- they don't drown either, but they definitely can't swim. If you live by a large body of water, sailing off in a boat is a quick way to eliminate the possibility of being attacked. Check for stowaways.

10. Stay positive.

Stock up on food.
