Free Zombrex!
Usually you have to search all over or complete an entire mission just to get a single box of Zombrex, but I found there is an exception. Once you gain access to the underground passageways during/after case file 2-2, make your way to the south-eastern corner on the underground map to find a box lying on the floor on one of the inclines. This will get you ahead of Katie's schedule or provide you with enough to give to the man in the mission "Once Bitten".
Hardly feel a Thing
A good way to keep up Health and useful in Fighting off the Psychopaths is to create a drink called "Pain Killer." This can be made by bring two bottles of Wine to a Blender and mixing them together. Now you have a Drink that'll not only give you alot of Health back when you drink it, but it'll also make it Harder for you to take Damage and Lose Health. This way you don't have to worry about the Psychopaths Hard to Dodge attacks. XD
