Common Weapon Locations
Within Pandemic Express – Zombie Escape, there are a few locations you can explore that consistently drop weapons of three stars or higher. You are going to want to make your way to the crossroads, harbor and the factory. Check out the map above for an illustration of each location.
The vending machines in Pandemic Express – Zombie Escape deliver health. However, they can also deposit weapons.
In order to get a vending machine to drop a gun, you will have to strike the machine with either a weapon or a melee strike twice. This only creates a chance that the vending machine will drop a weapon, so you will have to be patient and pummel the machine until you get a drop.
The vending machines appear to share a pattern. Each machine seems to drop a single one star or two star tier weapon and a single four star or five star tier weapon. After that, the vending machines appear to stop dropping weapons altogether. However, the machine may deliver you a pack of ammunition a single time as a consolation.
This process can be quite time consuming, so make sure to not spend too much of your time. You are not just fighting the zombie hoard. You’re fighting against the clock. With every passing second, things become more difficult in this game.
That being said, snagging a strong weapon can be the saving grace in your playthrough. So, make sure to nab some firepower one way or the other.
