Of course, it doesn't end there, killing zombies can take quite a while, and zombie moves extremely slowly and scatter all over the map. The car is not enough to reach every single zombie because zombies spread deep into the forests where there is nothing, even in an empty part of the map where you have never been before, there may be zombies and you cannot reach these points by car, you may have to walk for days.


There may also be remaining zombies among the zombies you think you have killed. One of the zombie mechanics in Project Zomboid is that zombies can play dead. This can be very difficult and may cause your death both for normal gameplay and for such a challenge, so make sure the downed zombie is dead.

It's actually a very simple method, all you have to do is pull as many zombies as you can, to do this you have to turn on the sirens of the ambulance, after a few zombies are chasing you, you have to get out of the ambulance and throw a molotov cocktail and wait for them to ignite.


After a few zombies caught fire, you will slowly move through the city with your sirens blaring at a speed that zombies cannot catch up with you, and the zombies following you will slowly burn, and in this way, you can clear as many zombie hordes as you want with a snowball effect. The fire will do most part of the work for you, but you may want to do this a little further away from your base because the fire can spread to the houses.


It's as simple as that when you look at the fact that you can kill once human citizens of Knox Country. If you want to use more normal methods instead, the best way to repel large hordes of zombies is with shotguns as firearms, and you can kill the standing zombies with melee weapons.
