Two blasters not mentioned:

Type: Pistol
Method: Priming single shot
Additions: Laser for accuracy, two additional places for darts
Pros: Quiet, small, hooked primer so you can set up a sling
Cons: Single firing
Notes: A good stealth blaster. Compact, so even if you don't do stealth, it won't affect you too much.

Type: Pistol
Method: Six-shot primer
Additions: Sling mounts, slam fire, can put in 5 darts at once
Pros: Lightweight, has slam fire, good range, many sling mounts (I use the one nearest the barrel to store two extra darts!)
Cons: Only has six shots, loud (heck, a flywheel may even be quieter than slam-firing this when the ARs have been taken out ), jams more frequently than the Maverick (and the problem is out of your control, at least with the Maverick you can solve the jamming problem by firing a certain way)
Notes: A good last resort or quick drawing blaster. If you have ninja reflexes, use this to combat ambushes. You can easily ready it, as it is light, and quickly build a small foam barrier.

Temporary loadout until I know what to get next.

Primary: Maverick (AR Removal, Russian Roulette modification)
Secondary: Firestrike (Unmodded, as the screws are rusted. Going to be mostly used for stealth, as it's very quiet)
Tertiary/Last Resort: Reflex (AR Removal, currently broken because I suck at modding)

No paint jobs yet.

EDIT: Just found the disruptor for 10 dollars, and ordered the Doominator as a primary. Time to reorganise.

Primary (Against large hordes) - Zombiestrike Dominator (Hasn't arrived yet)
Secondary (For stealth priming\firing) - Firestrike (Unmodded, screws rusted and can't be undone)
Tertiaries (For medium sized hordes) Disruptor (Unmodded so far) and Maverick (AR Removal, Russian Roulette mod)
Last Resort (That, or for single hordes) Reflex

The Firestrike is, even when it isn't padded, a quiet weapon. Especially when you consider the fact that there's a feature which makes even an unpadded Firestrike very quiet.


Hold the trigger and pull back the primer as normal. Once it's pulled back fully, release the trigger. This makes no sound at all, and has no cost. At all.
                                                There's seriously no reason why you shouldn't do this.

Firing (Way #1)

Firstly, prime your gun (if you haven't done so already). Hold the primer back lightly and shoot. The harder you pull, the quieter the gun will be - but the less power your shot will have. This shouldn't be a problem if you modify your ammunition, though - adding small, light springs to the bottom of your darts sacrifices a tiny bit of accuraccy for power. The more times the spring loops around the dart, the more accurraccy and less power it will have.
I'll go over it in more detail someday.
Don't count on it though.
No promises.
[EDIT: Power is reduced for some blasters. Test this before you start fighting in a real game with your modded ammunition.]

Firing (Way #2)

DO NOT prime your shot. Instead, hold the trigger and pull back your primer. Do not pull it all the way back and release the trigger, though.
When you want to fire, release the primer and the trigger at the same time. No matter how hard you tug the primer, no matter the distance between the primer handle and the gun, the sound will be the same, although the sound will be less than the first one at the amount of power this way fires the dart at.

By the way, I just chose the Firestrike because it is the stealthiest blaster using a primer that I know of. Most blasters utilizing a primer will work with this method. Keyword is 'most' here.

EDIT: Of course, you can't prime silently or fire the second way with slam fire. I only just got my first slam-firing blaster today (Disruptor), and when it relies on priming with the trigger held down, it's pretty useless.
Sorry, Solid Rambo.

And for you zambie mainers out there; how would you deal with the hunters being hunted - but the hunters not knowing where the danger is coming from?

I keep my eye on the forums occasionally. We kind of phased it out.  The wiki was hacked and we have not restored it. I plan on getting around to it eventually.

You can find a cached version of it here: https://web.archive.org/web/20150602220231/http://wiki.humansvszombies.org/index.php?title=Main_Page

If you need any help, just shoot me off an email: [email protected].

a necro five years in the making!

I doubt any of the old gang will ever read this, but Chev, back when I started at Lindenwood I read this like the Bible. When I got into a position where I could run the Horde I did so by these rules. Our game went zombie-friendly. Our players had the best time of their lives. We're still seeing the effects of it in our game's culture- people aren't scared of getting tagged, because the Horde has a Damn Good Time. Folks still come up to me, call me Fearless Leader...

I'm going to print this out before the forums are lost to the abyss, make a cover, and bind it, put it on my shelf. Because this is what made me the veteran player I am now.

Thanks, Chev. I hope you're doing good out there somewhere today.

A low, long creak echoes as light falls in from the ceiling. It appears a trap door has opened. A rope made of bandannas descends to eye level. Above, there's the sound of the apocalypse...

Hey stranger! When the HVZ main page cut the link to the forums out, we migrated to other places. A few of us still keep an eye on this one, though. Most of our attention is usually on https://www.reddit.com/r/humansvszombies/ these days. If you have Facebook, you can friend me there- and I can point you at some resources and groups. Are you "CheesySocksGuru" on Reddit?

I'm trying to make a game HvZ game after watching Domics HvZ video.
After looking through the site and getting the general understanding of how this game plays, I'm trying to gain more information on moderation and safety.
So far, I've come to realize that most of the forum stuff here is at least a year old, the HvZsource for my college has been over 5 years since it's last update and the wiki's seem to be down on the site.
I'll start looking outside of this site for information but if there is anyone around with prior knowledge on how to start a game, I'd appreciate it.

At risk of necro-ing (because I can't start a new topic for some reason?), have there been any updates on the progress towards the API? I would like to try and make a discord bot, but there doesn't seem to be anything available.

I have the Recon MK 1 and Stampede ECS 18, the pro of Recon is that it is using clip system, so you can use 18 dart clip, 6 dart clip or any drum, but my Recon seems broken, if I put all 6 darts in the clip, it will jam, if not it will only fire 1 dart, thus I have to use only 1 dart with the Recon. Whereas for the Stampede, if I fire it slanted with the bipod, the darts sometimes can't fire out and instead, gets stuck halfway through the barrel, but if it is fired while I'm holding it, it will be fine. Nonetheless, I still have the Stampede as my primary. For your info, I got my stampede having a funny story lol. My aunt from Malaysia called Toysrus M'sia and asked if they had the Longshot. (At that time, it was near Christmas and I wanted the Longshot very bad lol). So they said yes because a dad ordered it but didn't pick it up, so she went over the next few days and she bought it. Funny story was I got to see all my nerd guns early, so I knew what they were. The funny thing was she didn't check that it was the stampede until I saw it. So everybody was like ummm why is it Stampede. So she immediately call them (Toyrus) again and they said that they saw it wrongly lol. Nonetheless I love the Stampede very much as well.
