Zombie HQ is a top-down shooter for the iPhone, iPod Touch and the Android OS that has you shooting and bludgeoning while you are rescuing survivors, facilitating airlifts, and completing other such missions. You can use a variety of weapons from pistols, rifles, machine guns, shotguns, and even the good old trusty baseball bat with nails in it. Read on for some tips and tricks for Zombie HQ!
Energy runs out quickly in Zombie HQ. You only complete a few missions, and you end up running out of energy. However, you can get a free energy refill at any time. Simply go to your phone or device’s settings, then change the time. Set it ahead by an hour or so. Then, go back to the game, and your energy will be completely refilled. You can either play the game now, or you can go back to the phone settings and set the time back to normal. If you do the last option, then your energy will still be full when you go back to the game.
This same trick works for when you buy a new weapon, as well, but you don’t want to wait for it to get delivered. When the delivery time starts counting down, just do the above trick for an instant weapon delivery.
When using the baseball bat, instead of tapping the fire button over and over, hold down the fire button and your character will keep swinging the spiked bat over and over again. Holding down the fire button while running around, avoiding zombie attacks and then running right up to the zombies and smashing them, is an excellent way to score easy kills if you have run out of ammo, or even if you have not run out of ammo yet.
When you are fighting the beast, use your baseball bat on all of the little zombies that fight you in between the beast disappearing and reappearing. Then, when the beast is out, switch back to the guns. Explosives are excellent as well if you are having trouble beating the beast even with guns.
