Assuming you have several magazines (at least 3, each holding 12 or more darts), I would suggest either the Stryfe or the Retaliator...maybe take both and you can see which you prefer.


Most people will probably pick the stryfe over a retaliator, especially since you haven't converted the retaliator to pump action.


Before you take the stryfe with you, remove the dart sensor (if yours still has it). It's the part with the spring pictured here. You literally just unscrew the blaster, pull it out, and then put the blaster back together.


Many HvZ events limit blaster performance so the Big Bad Bow might actually not be allowed.


The Doominator might be your best bet if you don't have a lot of magazines.


Range isn't too much of a factor since the zombies will be rushing at you. So make sure your blaster is reliable and easy to reload with lots of darts.


Other people that have played a lot more HvZ than I can give you more advice, but that should get you started. Good luck!


PS: Assuming they allow you to use balled up socks as (thrown) weapons, make sure you take some socks, too.

^socks socks socks

Un modified flywheels are terribad, but if it works that fine. You want something that works and is reliable. so yea. 
TBH show up and have fun, you don't need that much, and being a zombie isn't that bad. This is like a few hour long game? 

I'd reccomend anything buzzbee airtek that's magfed because people really like it, or the Dartzone magnum because #nomagsnoproblems and no need to carry stuff besides darts + socks

Gonna second the recommendation on the Magnum. Probably the best scavenger blaster out there.

Just to be clear, I wouldn't recommend at all that you use a Zing Bow. I'd be cautious to let anyone shoot someone with those at any sort of close range.

I agree with Serene Haze. If you don't have a Dart Zone Magnum buy one and make it pump-action. Then purchase a whole bunch of Amazon darts and you'll be set for HvZ for only 60$ or so.
