Idea: Maybe have a police station with an armory that has combat shotguns,9mm pistols etc. and to get in it maybe you have to find and use bolt cutters unless someone has already opened it, or you could have it open but have very few guns..
Yeah i was thinking about that as well, maybe have that as another possibility instead of finding like bolt cutters you could just kill some zombies and then try to find the key, like a sneaky way and a combat driven way
Nice idea. But I'm thinking in terms of realism it wouldn't be too realistic if the station was closed after a zombie apocalypse happened, I mean one would think that that's one of the first places most people would go to try and get a weapon? Maybe even try and go there to get help.
