Hey All,

Was playing with some friends yesterday and a question came up.

Towards the end we were trying to get into a building to get the last objective, but had a few zombies in our square.

The rules say you cannot search with zombies in your square, but can you break down doors with zombies in your square or do you need to kill them first? I don't believe the rules specify. We may need to house rule it, but cannot agree on it as a group.

Thanks!

Pretty sure that you can open doors with zombies in your square. The only restriction is as you state searching. You can also pick up objectives as well although depending who I'm playing with we tend to house rule this to no zombies in zone as well.

Ive always understood that you can open the door at any time.
Although that said, id suggest killing the others first.

I guess you can break the door down, though I would probably use that extra action to smash a zombie skull instead of the door. Plus, once that door opens, all of the rooms will spawn. Unless you are one kill away from a higher danger level, I can't see the benefit in choosing to break down a door over killing a zombie.

I thought it stated specifically in the rules that you can't pick up an objective if a zombie is in the space.

Thanks everyone.

The reason we wanted to break it down then was because there were still 2 players to go after, but neither had a weapon that could break down doors.

By breaking the door down first they were able to clear out most of the building before the zombies had a turn to attack or move.

Hmm, thanks. I guess I just started playing that way and never looked back.

It makes more sense that way but isn't actually a rule!

@Dudley, Zombies donĀ“t automatically spawn when a door is broken down, they spawn when the buildings FIRST door is broken down. Just to avoid any misunderstanding.
