Unconventional Weapons

What defines an unconventional weapon? In this instance, we at Zombies Playground define an unconventional weapon as one you wouldn't initially pick, but one that nevertheless is still as effective at killing zombies as, say, a razor-sharp blade. And each of these weapons definitely qualifies under that criterion. In this category, you'll find weapons that wouldn't necessarily seem like effective zombie killers. But you can rest assured that if you can find it here, it's definitely up to the task of taking on more than a few zombies. Here, you'll find weapons like baseball bats, which are perfect for not only smashing a pitch out of the ballpark, but also well-suited to pulverizing a zombie skull into little more than a messy stain. And that's not all you'll find here. As time goes by and we destroy more and more zombies, we'll add more items to this category, ensuring that each and every one is an effective zombie slayer in its own right. And even better, most of the time, an unconventional weapon, like a survival knife, is something of a multi-tasker, capable of filling many different roles. So check back with the Zombies Playground every now and then, so that you can keep yourself up-to-date with what some of the best Unconventional Weapons are when it comes to surviving the zombie apocalypse.
