  • Nice! I'd wondered if that would work after playing that episode. Didn't have a car I was willing to try it on, though.:)

    Yeah it works. If you live near a lot of lakes/canals, etc. They actually recommend you keep one in your car in case something happens and you end up under water with the windows up.

    (window punch). When I lived in New Orleans there were a lot of people that ended up dying because they went off the road and didn't know what to do.
  • Yep, I knew it worked and I soooo wanna try it (I can even think of a few vehicles I wouldn't mind trying it on... none of them are mine of course).

    I've wanted to do it since I first saw it.
  • I knew it worked but it's loud. It didn't really seem like the best solution when you're trying to sneak around zombies.
  • he said it turns it to tissue paper, I thought It might be quiet..... but no

    I remember the animation team using this as reference:

    It's still loud, but this guy recorded it indoors.

    If anyone tried it or at least held the broken piece of porcelain from inside the spark plug, does it feel heavy at all?

    I mean, porcelain is usually pretty light, but fucking hell, the window just... disappears.
  • Yeah im curious about the weight of this ceramic as well.

    Well the writers clearly have little perception of how sound works.

    On top of shattering the glass, they used a pillow to dampen the sound of a pistol so some zombies on the balcony above them couldn't hear. (I think the devs just wanted to teach you about the porcelain trick instead of letting you use the pillow+pistol in the window too).

    And then Lee and Lilly couldn't hear a thing from Ben, their watchman, who was sitting just outside their door when a group of bandits lined everyone up for shooting.

    I thought it was just the motel that was cursed. And then I heard Kenny clearly shouting from two train carts away when he saw the collapsed truck ahead. I was like "WTF!?!"
