34 ways to kill a zombie

We love zombies to bits. No, sorry - that came out wrong. We love to blast zombies to bits. But that's not the only way we like to kill them. In fact we've got a video of 33 other ways to make the dead even deader.

From Dreamcast's awesome House of the Dead spin-off Zombie Revenge or 360's Dead Rising to PS2's Maximo and Gamecube's Eternal Darkness, there are hordes of shuffling daisy pushers to dismember, scythe and bludgeon. But be warned! There's some pretty violent stuff in here so don't go fibbing to the age-gate.

    L4D-With a mounted machine gun. With a Push off a building. With a Boomer's Explosion. With an ENTIRE GAS STATION DECIMATION. Chucking a Pipe-Bomb near the edge of a cliff and watching them slip over the side. Letting the tank thw a car and take out an entire group by mistake. And my favorite, If you drop on top of them it kills them, ITS-A-MARIO TIME! Dead Space-With gravity panels. With a skull fracturing pimp slap. With a suspended saw-blade. With the explosive necromorph. With Stasis murder. With a broken slamming door. With other creatures you can pick up with kenises. HL2-With anything you can pick up with the Gravity-Gun. With the Combine disintegration balls. By dropping a car trap on them. Bludgening with a crowbar. Pinning to a wall with a crossbow. Killing with a fan trap. Burning the one in the gas burner cage. Calling out an army of antlions to maime them. Dead Rising-With a Bench. With medeival weaponry. With a pipe that makes their blood leak out. Soccer ball to the face. Home-Run with a bat.

    not bad. shoulda had the pipe bomb from left4dead though. get a good 10-15 zombies with that one. And L4D's a far better zombie game than Dead rising.

    Nice Article Chainsaws, guns and other deadly wepons are good. But when it comes to real life zombie killing, nothing beats # 18 throughing a popsicle ;P
  • Geigan - November 20, 2008 2:21 a.m.

    You could have just said kill it with fire and have left it at that instead of repeating it in different forms and you reused headshot. Great video anyway though=). But what about death by rocket launcher,being blown into the ceiling by a fan, and saw blade launched via gravity gun?
  • Bryce2552 - November 20, 2008 2:10 a.m.

    The chinsaw is, has been, and always will be, my favorite way to kill a zombie.
  • GamesRadarTylerNagata - November 20, 2008 12:16 a.m.
