Overrun: Zombie tower defense is an offline base-building survival game published by Wildfire Games Ltd. Overrun is set in a post-apocalyptic world infested with zombies. You need to build defenses, form an alliance with survivors and fight the zombies to survive the zombie world. With each Zombie wave, the difficulty level rises which makes it harder for you to follow the same game plan. Every level presents a different challenge, so it’s your job to ensure that your defense doesn’t get overrun. Here are some tips and tricks that can help you to survive the Zombie nightmare.
1 Build barracks to protect your recruits
What many players ignore while fighting the zombies is building a proper defense system. Barracks are important to protect your recruits from the approaching horde of Zombies. Disregarding their significance can cost you lives in this brutal zombie world.
You can build barracks by using wooden blocks. You can use extra protection by fencing the barracks with barbed wires, wooden spikes, etc. Oil and landmines can also be used while building your defense. Covering the borders of your base with oil can prove to be decisive. When ignited with the use of a molotov cocktail, it can act as a ring of fire that protects you from incoming zombies. Barracks, therefore, is a necessary measure that you need to undertake to ensure your survival.
2 Use your utilities wisely
Explosive are minimum effort maximum damage items in Overrun. From Molotov Cocktails to regular grenades and dynamites, along with stun and flash grenades, are effective weapons to deter hordes of Zombies. However, you should keep in mind that Explosive deals the most damage when used on a horde of Zombies. You cannot use them separately on every single zombie. Use explosive only when the zombie forms a horde near you.
3 Purchase weapons after every wave
You need to update your arsenal after every successful zombie defense. With each wave, the difficulty level rises, so weapons used in level one are not that effective in level 2. While purchasing new weapons, you should keep the damage-dealing capacity, fire rate, and range of weapons in mind. These aspects differ in every weapon. So, you should choose the weapon which performs effectively in each of these aspects.
4 Aim from higher ground
While gunpower is an important aspect of the game, it is only effective when used with proper strategy. When you place your recruits on higher grounds, you get an added advantage. Aiming the zombies from the higher ground increases the probability of headshots which deals more damage. Higher grounds can be found in map locations or you can build them using wooden blocks.
5 Work as a team
You should ensure that every squad member watches each other backs against the swarm of zombies. Every squad member can use different types of weapons. One can use snipers, another one can use mid-range weapons while others can use shotguns to protect the rest. Also, when one member is surrounded by a swarm of zombies, others who are free can be moved to help the member. Effective teamwork is the key to survival in the world of Overrun.
