You should place your most frequently used items in the holsters. This way, you can choose them instantly rather than rummaging through your entire bag. Ammunitions are an exception; they do not require being in the holster for your character to access them directly. Remember not to stock up useless items. Throw away the stuff you do not use or keep it in your safe house until you find a purpose for it.

Flashlight

The hammer helps you build barricades or destroy them. Furthermore, you can use it to strengthen already set up barricades. It takes eight taps on your gamepad to remove/destroy a barricade. To do it quickly use both of your thumbs and one finger to tap the gamepad.

Spraycan

It allows you to write online messages. Though it is located at several places, you can find it at the above-mentioned place most easily.

Cricket Bat
Location. It can be found during Mission #1, in the travel shop by the infected survivor.

L9A1 Browning
Location. It can be found during Mission #1, inside the first backpack you find on the recently dead survivor by the travel shop. On top of that, it is also placed on a small pedestal birdbath in the courtyard of the St.George’s Church.

Ammo for this gun is easy to come by, and it offers the longest range for handguns in the game. The reload time for this gun is very high, so it may be better for you to swap it with another weapon when under constant threat.

HKP226
Location. It can be found during Mission #6, in the Palace underground, situated in the restrooms there.

It is almost like the L9A1 but comes equipped with a silencer. This gun can be used when you do not want to attract zombies by the sound of your gunshot. Furthermore, it uses the same type of ammo as the L9A1 but does not do as much damage.

Magnum Pistol
Location. It can be found after Mission #11, on Bacon fields on Darwin Yard. It is inside the shed. Hack the keycard lock of the door once your pad is updated.

Although this gun inflicts twice the damage, but it also attracts twice as many zombies by its sound alone. It is lethal at close range but even more on the long range. You can use it to kill two enemies with a single bullet, and it is also good for armor penetration.

ZombiU Explosives

Flare
You can use flares to attract zombies. By doing this you can get them in a group. With the attention of the zombies else where you can either surprise attack them or make an undetected escape.

For example, you can lob a flare to gather zombies at the single spot. Then chuck a grenade among them to get numerous instant kills. Furthermore, you can lob it near an explosive object like a gas canister. When the zombies gather near it, shoot the gas canister to get numerous instant kills. These two are just a few of the many applications of the flare.

Grenade
Grenades in this game work just as same as in any other game. Chuck at a group of enemies and they will explode four seconds after. Be warned, this weapon does not differentiate between foes and friends. On top of that, grenades harm the foes more quickly than Molotov cocktail. For example, you can lob a flare to gather zombies at the single spot. Then chuck a grenade among them to get numerous instant kills.

Molotov cocktail
Chuck it towards your foes and upon impact, it will cause an incendiary blast of a small radius. Be warned, this weapon does not differentiate between foes and friends.

Then chuck a Molotov cocktail among them to get numerous instant kills.

Mine
It explodes when any unlucky guy walks over it dealing it immense damage. Be warned, this weapon does not differentiate between foes and friends. Moreover, it does more damage than the Molotov cocktail or the grenade. To make the enemies walk over it just chuck a flare in the general direction of the mine.

Explosive Barrels
They are like the Molotov cocktails. The only difference is that you have to shoot them to make them explode. These barrels can be found across London on various spots. You can lob a flare near an explosive barrel. When the zombies gather near it, shoot the barrels to get numerous instant kills.

Gas Canister
What goes for the explosive barrels, same goes for the gas canister. You can lob a flare near an explosive object like a gas canister. When the zombies gather near it, shoot the canister to get numerous instant kills. Keep in mind that the damage these canisters cause initially the same as that of the explosive barrels but after effects do not last long.

ZombiU Shotguns Locations

Double Barrel Shotgun
Location. It can be found during Mission #7, inside the foreman’s office of the second warehouse located in the Brick Lane flats.

This is an extremely lethal weapon at close range. It uses the same kind of ammo as all the other shotguns. However, it requires a reload after each two bullets fired. When it is out of ammo, it may be better to switch to an altogether different weapon then reloading it.

Remington 870
Location. It can be found during Mission #11, on Shoreditch road by the petrol can next to the petrol station.

The best advantage this weapon provides is double space of ammo. This means it can fire four shells before reloading. Furthermore, the reload time for this weapon is halved. However, with this shotgun, you cannot score a critical hit.

Benelli M4 Tactical
Location. It can be found during Mission #11, on the tug boat situated on pier 2 of the tower of London.

It may take two shots to finish an enemy at close range but the fact it can fire seven shells before a reload does compensate for its weak fire power. However, the reload speed for this gun is excellent. M4 is best suited to take down multiple enemies at a time unlike the double barrel shotgun which is reserved for only one on one interaction.

ZombiU Carbines Locations

Lee Enfield No.4 MK 1

ZombiU Crossbow Location

Hunting Crossbow
Location. It can be found during Mission #6, inside the secret interior crawl passage inside the Buckingham Palace. The passage can be accessed through the rotating plinth off the grand entrance room.

It is the only weapon which is silent as well as with a scope. It lands frequent hits at targets within fifty meter range. Keep in mind that you have to reload this weapon every time you fire it, and reload time is long.

ZombiU Submachine Guns Locations

MP5 SD
Location. It can be found during Mission #10, inside the first warehouse, in the upper office behind the secret wall keypad.

UMP 45
Location. It can be found during Mission #12, inside the nursery bottom basement, in the storage room which accessed via the septagram puzzle and keypad door.

It has more fire power than the MP5, but it does not come with a silencer. Moreover, it has a longer reload time.

ZombiU Rifles Locations

AK-47
Location. It can be found during Mission #10, inside Raven’s secret chamber in the Tower Of London.

SA80a2
Location. It can be found during Mission #14, behind the rising metal wall, inside an ammo stash accessed by picking a lock.

This is the most powerful gun in ZombiU. It is capable of killing six enemies at a short range without even reloading. Furthermore, it is capable of killing two foes with one bullet. However, keep in mind that this gun has a lengthy reload time.

ZombiU Mounted Weapons Locations

M2 Turret
Location. It can be found inside the safe house on the Mezzanine balcony. One is also on the Victoria Memorial by the gates to the Buckingham Palace. Keep in mind you cannot move these guns from their fixed spots.
