IMO, repurposing GFF would be more interesting, WarStuff is kinda bland. I would look at TAO, since they have lots of guns, rather than crazy paladins and stuff. HDF and Rebels are also kinda like that.
Double Tap would also be good. Melee isn't great in Double Tap, but assuming your average zombies are just 1-point units, you could possibly have enough to overwhelm guns. The Poison Gear rule could simulate zombie infection maybe. If it's like a video game horde of zombies, I could see a few Fast or Armored zombies in the mix. Ambush or Ambush+Infiltrate would also be great.
For a zombie survival campaign, you'd probably want a few house rules. I feel like you'd want some kind of destructible terrain, like a barricaded door that zombies can break through. In a campaign, maybe you'd have to spend points to repair them. Tracking infections could be a thing, but I feel like Poison Gear covers that pretty well. There aren't any default campaign rules for Double Tap, so you'd have to borrow from the mainline games or make up your own.
Depends how smart you want your zombies to be! If you just want to mow down endless ranks of the undead, Horde B seems like the way to go. Your survivors will not ever run out of ammo, so it will feel more like just seeing if you can take them out before they can overwhelm you.
If you go with the Horde A, maybe bump the points up, so that there are more zombies!
I like my tea, as I like my nights: dark, endless, and impossible through which to sleep.
