Empty Tin Can

The Empty Tin Can is a commonly found trash item. It can be thrown to create a noisy distraction for zombies. When thrown at players, it can distort their view and disorient them. It can also be used to smash windows, such as at the front of hospitals, and in large enough quantities (4+) they can be used to kill zombies or players.

When throwing this at destructible glass, it is recommended to keep a fairly large distance as it can commonly cause temporary deafness and blurred vision to anybody too close. The effect on zombies is unknown and requires testing.

WARNING: Don't throw these at friends as it may break their legs or send them into a coma. It may be funny at first, but it's not when you have to start talking to him about the farm and the alfalfa and rabbits while holding a revolver to the back of their head.

It's funny that you can kill someone with empty cans. But they are VERY useful for breaking hospital windows because when you trow it at the glass you won't hear the glass break sound but only the can fall sound and that can be very useful for not making much noise.
