Next, go to the armory to choose your weapons

There are a lot of weapons in the armory, but it's going to take you a lot of games to earn that money. Alternatively, you can buy your way to happiness.

The town is ruined

As you play, you'll run through broken-down houses and other abandoned buildings.

Always stop for boxes

Boxes contain money, bullets, and special emergency weapons. The green boxes have bullets.

Grab the yellow box for cash

It takes a long time to collect money in the Running Dead. Grab as many yellow boxes as you can for a few extra coins.

Keep moving

You'll need to swerve between cars and trucks as you shoot down zombies and stay ahead of the horde.
