So You Want to Survive the First Couple of Red Nights but Are too Lazy to Build Yourself a Safe Cave / Bunker?
Have you tried putting you faith in God? No, I'm not talking about actually praying for salvation. There is no salvation in a post-apocalyptic zombie infested world!
What I'm talking about is finding the type of Church that is just the one big room with the altar and the benches for the faithfuls to pray. Oh yeah, and the most important part: the architraves on top.
Once 21:50 comes, be sure to find yourself inside said church, and then just build up 7 or 8 wooden blocks to allow you to reach the lower part of the roof (and remember to pick up as many blocks as you can once you've settled to avoid the zombos following you).
Place a couple of candles on both ends of the architrave to give yourself a source of light (if you don't have an helmet with a torch or an actual torch with you) and then just wait for the night to pass, as the zombies will start destroying the walls of the Church trying to reach you, without success.
This also serves as a good sniping position to get some extra EXP and maybe some rare loot from a safe distance by sending those nasty zombies straight to Hell where they came from (I'd suggest by either using a Marksman Rifle, a gun with a telescope or even better some explosives/molotovs).
Let the power of Christ keep you safe while you destroy your enemies!
