Home > Defense > Fortresses
Apartments: These places are simply amazing in the sort term for survival. To defend youself, just get everyone onto the second floor and destroy the stairs. Not only is the position useful, but so are the people. There will be carpenters, engineers, surveyors, doctors, maybe even army veterans. The only problem with apartments is that they dont last long. Food will be limited, and when food gets short, things go downhill fast Class One outbreak survival rating: 10/10 Class Two outbreak survival rating: 8/10 Class Three outbreak survival rating 3/10 Class Four outbreak survival rating 0/10
Churches: This place is easily the worst possible place to be in an outbreak. Maybe in a small outbreak you would survive, but not in against anything more than ten zombies. The reason for this is not with the place at all. Many (especially inner-city) churches are protected against robbers, with thick heavy doors and high up windows. However, when trouble occurs, people, especially Americans, flee to god. Sattelite images have shown that, as outbreaks progress, zombies begin moving towards churches. This is no war between good and evil. The churches are where the food is. They will find a way in.

Hospitals: Whatever you do, don't go here. This is where most outbreaks start, as the infection takes a while to kill people, and when they feel sick, people go to the doctor. Then when they die, they wake up in the morgue as a zombie, get up and start infecting. 90% of outbreaks start in hospitals, and almost always the infection spreads to here first as bitten people flock to the hospital for treatment.

Two-story or more Houses: In the short term, these places are fine. Basically all you need to do to secure a two story or more house is destroy the stairs. Use an axe, sledgehammes, chainsaw, whatever comes to hand. But do this first, don't delay to gather food or whatever.In the long term, these places are still fine, so long as you live far enough north that they freeze in the winter, you can gather a ridiculous amount of food during the winter. However, the only way to survive is to stay unnoticed against an outbreak, as in class three or four outbreaks the zombies will just pile on top of eachother, eventually clambering high enough to get in.

One Story Houses: Hide on the roof. Run, find another hiding place as fast as you can as soon as they are all gone. That is all you really can do. Class One outbreak survival rating: 5/10 Class Two outbreak survival rating: 3/10 Class Three outbreak survival rating: 0/10 Class Four outbreak survival rating: 0/10
Tornado Houses: These places are great. High up on stilts, with retractable stairs, and (typically) stocked with enough food to last several months in the case of a disaster.If you live in one, basically you are set against anything other than a class four outbreak. And even then, there is a reasonable chance of survival, but only if you aren't noticed. Class One outbreak survival rating: 10/10 Class Two outbreak survival rating: 9/10 Class Three outbreak survival rating: 8/10 Class Four outbreak survival rating: 3/10
Jails: Built to keep people in, these places can also keep people out. Perfect for almost any outbreak. The only issue is if the prisoners have taken over. There is a reason they are in jail. However, odds are the inmates were realeased when the outbreak started. However, if you see any kind of guard-inmate joint government, get out quickly. Class One outbreak survival rating: 10/10 Class Two outbreak survival rating: 10/10 Class Three outbreak survival rating: 9/10 Class Four outbreak survival rating: 6/10
Military Bases: Well stocked, well armed, and well manned by trained soldiers. There are absolutely no problems here. However, often these places will be abandoned, or only enlisted people's families will be allowed to get in.. However, if there is a military base nearby, this should be your first priority, especially if someone you are related to is stationed there. Class One outbreak survival rating: 12/10 Class Two outbreak survival rating: 10/10 Class Three outbreak survival rating: 8/10 Class Four outbreak survival rating: 6/10
Office Buildings: These will be fine in the short term, but if its a major outbreak, the people are the last kind that you want here. There are no supplies, and unless there is a Dwight Schrute from the Office working at this specific place, no-one will be able to handle a zombie outbreak mentally. Class One outbreak survival rating: 3/10 Class Two outbreak survival rating: 2/10 Class Three outbreak survival rating: 0/10 Class Four outbreak survival rating: 0/10
Government Buildings: This includes police stations, etc. DONT GO HERE. People will be flocking here as it is, and they are even less well built for defense than churhces. They are also smaller. Zombies aren't even needed to handle the people flocking to these buildings. The workers wont be able to handle so many people riots, accidents, everything that can go wrong will go wrong here Class One outbreak survival rating: 2/10 Class Two outbreak survival rating: 1/10 Class Three outbreak survival rating:0 /10 Class Four outbreak survival rating: 0/10
Warehouses: Crates for walls, you can make a secondary fallback position with more crates, if this is at a dock odds are there will be food, or some other supplies. This is literally the best possible place you can escape to in all situations. If there are cranes, use the crates as weapons, dropping them on top of the zombies. Other than a deserted island, literally this is the best possible place to go.
