A change in regulation for the Humans vs. Zombies game on the UNC-Greensboro campus eased community concerns, but at the cost of some student participation.
Eliminating the use of Nerf blasters was the main rule change to the game this semester, said UNC-G Campus Chief of Police Jamie Herring.
The game now uses socks and marshmallows instead, said Sebastian Fernandez, the moderator for Humans vs. Zombies and a UNC-G student.
The change was made after more than a dozen complaints were reported during last spring’s version of the game, he said.
One complaint concerned a student who dressed in camouflage and climbed on top of the school’s financial-aid building with a Nerf blaster, he said.
