People of Zomboid, what is the dumbest mistake you have made to either die or be gravely injured?

Recommended Posts

I was playing on a new character build today that I haven't tried before. I decided to be a burger flipper with a few negative traits. (Overweight, high thirst, etc.) 

 

Well I decided to try to teach this dumb fatso carpentry. So I cooked him a bunch of food (I was also trying to see if there was a weight cap on how big I can make this fatty.) In the process of me cooking a giant pot of stew amongst like 3 other foods, Woodcraft came on the T.V. I ended up losing track of time, and my character got tired. I also forgot the horde of greasy goodness in the oven. Suddenly I wake up house ablaze. I grabbed some sheet ropes I had made and hastily got my slightly cooked bacon out of the second story window. What was at the ground outside you ask? You guessed it, a group of zeds. Well they ate this slightly cooked fatman and that was the end of Terry Garcia. 

 

Never forgetti, rest in spaghetti.

2 day old character, searching for supplies.

Sneak up to a house.. Door is locked (rattle rattle, love that noise), move to the window as I hear the grumble and groan inside.

Look in the window, seems all clear. Open the window and climb in side as a Z appears out off the darkness. I push then get ready to take a swing with the baseball bat..

 

I was not holding a baseball bat, as I had just filled the water bottle in the last house I was in.  I guess he was not thirsty,  I died.

i was doing pretty well for myself, had a car and a few supplies and was heading out of town. bit low on fuel so though i would stop and raid the junkyard at riverside. hopped the fence and dealt with the few stragglers inside. this unfortunately tired my poor park ranger out and he couldn't climb back over the fence.  spent the night on the back seat of a car. woke up to find the gate had been broken down and there were more zombies inside the fence and a small group in the gateway. rather than hopping the fence and going back to my car i tried to lure them away from the gate (id forgotten i was no longer tired and could climb again) this tired me out again and i wasnt able to out run them or climb the fence again. i was promptly eaten alive

Choosing fast driver and forgetting to use the e brake in a turn. That and just falling off roofs.

That has prob killed me more time than the zombies have starting to think the deadliest thing in this game is a lead foot and trees.

I stood too close to a campfire and burned to death.

I actually ended a 3 month run that way. Fully stocked pack, all the gear i needed, and ended up burning to death

Was in a car, accidently hit U (vehicleinfo) instead of Z (to switch seats) the buttons are next to each other so.

Why is vehicleinfo make you leave the char anyway? TwT

I rebinded the key now...

 

Jumping over things without knowing what could behind them would be the next dumbest fail I make sometimes.

 

Open a door and look in another direction because whatever reason and get bitten.

Happened 5 minutes ago: 20 days run, holed up in one of the houses in the rosewood gated community. No doors, only badass log walls and the indestructible fences. Woke up in the morning and for no reason I saw 15-20 zombies near the fences looking at me, so I thought it was a good idea to practice with that shottie I found in the last run. In no time the place was swarmed, but I managed to slowly kill them one by one with hammers exploiting the transparent metal fences to keep distance from the threat. When I smashed the last skull I was so satisfied. I went past the fence to smoke a cig while looking at my hard work lying on the ground and once I lit the cig up I realized the last guy I killed wasn't actually the last. So I had to return inside with a nice bite pretty close to my carachter's balls.

90% of my deaths, i swing my weapon and was just ever so slightly off aim and got bitten because of it.  When facing a zed still means miss so you got to aim slightly above or below the zed not directly at them.

What keyboard are you using that has Z and U next to each other?

Certain languages swap the "z" and the "y" keys.

No kidding! I've been to countries that move the non-alphanumeric keys all over the place but I had no idea there were any English alphabet keyboards that moved the layout of the letters themselves.

im absolutely gutted. my last run i lasted 5 days, bandaged away a lot of cuts and i had most things and was looking at setting up camp but was out of food and starting to starve so opted to forage. id eaten a lot of berries by this point as i crossed half the map on foot. one of them must have been poisonous though and it wiped my helf to critical and left me feeling sick. not knowing what to do i made a run for more food/provisions and promptly got slapped to death by the first zombie touch

First character on the new update, played as a police officer in muldraugh. Found a car with gas and a backpack in my spawn house. Went to the police station and looted a key off a zombie and took 1 shotgun, 2 pistols, a m16. and 200+ rounds of assorted ammo. looted some food and drinks from the nearby gas station and started driving to rosewood. Found a cop zombie with a handgun on him and 2 other random zombies. Thought: "Just three zombies EZ." Got out of my car, pulled out my nightstick get stun locked by the three of them and died.

 

Now any time I see more then one zombie I'm like: "Ok how am I going to do this..."
