After the cutscene, exit the room and take out the Zombies in the Hallway, once you’ve entered the Front Hall, make your way upstairs and shoot the Zombie with a Backpack to retrieve the Old Key and pick up some High-Powered Rounds (SLS 60) from the Item Dispenser. Unlock the front door and shoot the Zombie with a backpack to collect the Chemical Flamethrower and an Old Key, use the Key to unlock the door, allowing you to break free from the Orphanage.

Grab yourself a Flash Grenade from the Item Dispenser to the left and head towards the Bus, as you approach a hoard of Zombies will start making their way towards you, simply wait until they’ve all exited and circle around them to enter. Take out the two Mutated Zombies waiting for you, then head over to the basketball court.

Tip: Use the Item Dispenser to the left of the court to grab yourself a Blue Herb. Combine this with your Green Herb to create the Mixed Herb (R+B) which will reduce the damage taken from the Lickers in the court.
