Do Hit & Runs

Do Hit & Runs

The Shambler can be outmaneuvered as it is quite slow. You can swoop in to attack, bait it to release a cloud, then run away at the last moment. You can also use ledges and elevated positions as they have a hard time navigating through them.

Shamblers Have Weak Eyesight

Shamblers Weak Vision

If you want to save ammo and resources, you can simply skirt through Shamblers as they can be fooled with bottles and bricks. They also have a hard time seeing the player as you need to be almost beside them in order for them to notice you.
