"Bowie Knife Building" Strategy

One strategy I have used with great success is using the building with the Bowie Knife on the outside as your defending base. Firstly, you want to turn on the power and get one mystery box weapon. Try to save your points, though. If you get some kind of machine gun, you'll probably be fine for the time being. Then, you want to make a crawler and open most to all of the doors and link the teleporters. After that, go to the building I mentioned before with the Bowie knife on the outside. Assuming you have 3 to 4 people in your game (without which the strategy will probably be very hard to follow), have one person defend the boarded up window on the balcony, one on top of the stairs, and one or two people shooting the zombies outside the building from the windows to lighten the job of the stair defender. After a few rounds of this, try to acquire another crawler and either get some perks, mainly Juggernog and Speed Cola OR upgrade your best weapon with the Pack-a-Punch. You probably won't have enough points to do both. Of course, in the later rounds as you get more points, you'll be able to get all these things. If the dogs come, gather up at the end of the upstairs balcony where the mystery box or the teddy bear is and shoot the dogs. This should get you to a high round. Do beware though. In the rounds above 18 or so, the dogs start appearing with the zombies. That was pretty intense the first time my team and I encountered that.



Well, there's one strategy among many others. I hope this helps some people get to the higher rounds. Have fun killing some Zombies, everyone!

its a great stratagie, i did it for a bit, but i found that people got over run way too easily. we ended up grouping together at the far end of the balcony wherethe random box is, and then just forcing the zombies into a bottle neck, and taking them on there. try it out

Me and my friends used that strategy by accident once.

I was guarding the window with my upgraded Colt (which is Freacking awesome)

Yeah, that's probably the best thing to do at the higher rounds. It worked with Nacht der Untotem, except there's no window on the side for extra zombies to come in. I might just try that next time I play.

My strategy is different, and I find it works much better. Have one person camp upstairs on the window, one on in the cave aka the suicide room lol, and the other 2 guarding the entrance. My friends and I got to 25, but would have got further because the guy in the suicide room got overrun because he only had snipers, causing our whole plan to fall apart.



These are what guns we use:



Upstairs window: PaP Panzershreck, PaP Trench Gun

Suicide Room: PaP Trench Gun, PaP Ray Gun

Entrance Man 1: PaP Ray Gun, PaP MG42

Entrance Man 2: PaP Ray Gun, PaP PPSh-41



The upstairs man will use panzershreck to clear out the entrance way and trench gun on window.

Suicide man will use trench gun on window and Ray Gun if he gets trapped

The Entrance Man 1 will watch front, while entrance man 2 watches the window next to Quick Revive and helps Entrance Man 1. These two will alternate positions to conserve ammo.



Both window watchers will focus on leaving one zombie so everyone can get guns, ammo, etc.

If you are as fortunate as we were, you will get a max ammo every round, so ammo isn't a problem.



If entrance men are being overrun, throw a monkey bomb, turn on electricity and let upstairs man clear the rest out with the panzershreck. We never had to use the teleporter because we held positions so well.

how weird we found this last night as well and it works great, ours was slightly different though. We had one guy down that underground corridor protecting the window, two guy up on the balcony one was covering that window and the other was shooting down on them outside with the wunderwaffe and then i was downstairs on the main doorway with the ray gun and mg. We got to round 27 before one guy done a stupid run to get double points and got downed, when we finished looked at the leader board and i was 486 at score which i was happy about.
