3:1 still applies, but it comes down to determining what 3:1 truly means. I think a good way to look at it is like this:
- Zombie moving speed = 1/3 human moving speed. If I have a single shot rifle with three rounds and three Zombies that are 25 meters away and I have nowhere to run - I think I'll be alright. Four Zombies with FOUR rounds - I think I'm in trouble. There's a lot that factors into it.
BUT BOTTOM-LINE: It depends on the situation. Depends on how you're equipped and prepared.
And thanks for reading my article.
