Because killing zombies is way more fun if A) you have a gun, and B) you have another gun, step up to Zombie Boot Camp. Launching this Saturday, this day-long apocalypse takes place on a vast paintball arena laid to waste with smoking rubble, burned-out cars, and other cataclysmic dereliction so as to be "as near to the zombie genre as possible" (note: Boot Camp does not take place in Hull). The essentials:
Equipment & Training: Upon arrival, you'll be issued and schooled on Kevlar body armour, a ballistic helmet, a "pyrotechnic antipersonnel grenade", and unlimited ammo for a converted M4 carbine assault rifle & semi-auto pistol. You'll then learn squad tactics, and listen to an instructor "dispel a few myths about killing zombies", like that it's acceptable to use a straw just because it's a Tiki drink.
The Final Mission: The murdering begins after dark, when you'll be tasked with "finding, fixing, and destroying an outbreak of small groups of zombies", switching from targetry to live fire against fully made-up undead, who're in turn tasked with taking you down. Only head shots will kill them, contaminated parties will "turn", and, during the final escape, it's promised that "only one will survive" -- so basically, no matter how hard you try, you're still going to lose out to a force that makes zombies shutter: Christopher Lambert.
