Zombie apocalypse

I don't know if this is allowed, but I'm going for it anyways. I have afew questions, but before that I want to say this is relatively miscellaneous. This doesn't have a specific topic-- just everything closely relevant to a zombie apocalypse.

Question 1: What sort of weapon would you prefer in a zombie apocalypse? What tactics do you prefer?

Question 2: "A zombie apocalypse is more about surviving the other survivors". would you agree with this, or not?

Question 3: Is there any Crunchyroll members you'd team up with if you had the chance to?

Question 4: Which is more important: supplies, or weapons and security?

There is also a zombie survival quizz. Here's the link: http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/425802

1. Sniping zombies from a safe position would be fun, but the most practical weapon(s) would be an assault rifle in the 5.56 - 7.62 range with any type of magazine-fed handgun and a machete. For tactics I'd either stay mobile if I was with others or go with a 'burn all of your bridges and keep your back to the wall' strategy if I had enough supplies to last.

2. I'd say other people would be the biggest threat in the beginning but after the initial panic and rioting settled down it would switch to the growing number of zombies being the biggest threat.

3. I'm not sure there's anyone at all that I'd trust with keeping themselves alive, let alone watching my back as well.

4. Weapons & security, definitely. As long as you can fight and have a safe place to rest/plan you can make attempts to get supplies.

5. Thick but light clothing. Thick enough to survive at least a grazing bite but light enough to stay agile.

1. Dildos, vibrators, ropes, condoms, lotion, pillows, and whips. Some proper weaponry should probably be in my inventory, too.
2. Very true.
3. You just asked me a question of trust!
4. Security, which can be achieved with supplies and weaponry.
5. Read #1

My ideal weapons of choice would be something like a bow/crossbow and something like a machete or hatchet for melee if I HAVE to get that close. Most zombies are drawn by loud noises and who knows when I'll be able to get more bullets, at least arrows/bolts can be made if I had to and bows/crossbows aren't super complex so one could feasibly make them without too much scavenging if any at all

Finding a group you can truly trust would be borderline impossible with any sort of emergency situation. Especially more so with the dead rising.
But no man is an island as the saying goes so I'd probably find some people to band together with.

I can think of one CR buddy I'd trust to watch my back so I'd probably take her along if I happened to be south of the border.

All of them are equally important. If I had to give preference then supplies come first. weapons and security tend to go hand in hand though.

As far as clothing is concerned I'd aim for something rugged and that would last a while. I'd probably get some arm and leg protection as well to limit my chances of being bitten if I'm really cornered

1. any sort of single fire assult rifle and a strong blunt weapon preferably something made of steel if i can find one or just a couple of bats (mind you i wouldn't go freely charging into hordes of zombies) hold out in a mall, set up operations on the roof with whatever survivers i have gathered, wait for looters and whomever else down below to leave, gather a small team from my survivers turn off power to the atuomatic doors and block all the entrances one by one without using any guns to prevent attracting more zombies to our location or to other doors which would in turn make it harder to block them off. then move everything that is useful from the bottem floor to the second (presuming the mall is at least 2 story) and then form a second blockaid on all stairs and escalators. then move to the security room and search for a working radio and any emergancy supplies like medkits and flares, bring what we have to the top and prep an emergancy signal fire if helicopters or low flying jets are in the vicinity. beforehand i would make sure i had people up top with firearms watching the entrances we sealed off making sure no one is trying to get in for shelter by tearing down our blockaid, because if so i would have them fire at will at the person, oh and right off the bat, if someone trys to pull a dead rising one and tear down the bariccade from the inside, i would shoot them myself withour warning, the survival of the many is more important than the few, especially if your trying to save a helpless dog thats standing RIGHT next to a gigantic horde.

2. at first get myself situated with a set plan and gear myself up, then rally up the people that i know and fully trust which would be a good 11 or 12

3. teh no

4. im with Nelterra, if supplies get low, we'll have a better chance of searching for more if we have weapons and a tight security making sure that we dont have looters coming to steal ours.

5. light gear with plenty of pockets that covers the whole body, also hard plastic or thin metal (durable enough to resist a bite or scratch) wraped around parts of my arms and legs to stay mobile, as those are the much more likly spots you'll get bitten, and then wear multiple layers of gloves that are fingerless since your fingers are more than likely going to be curled up into a fist or wraped around a weapon

If there was a zombie apocalypse, I doubt it would reach Australia, as zombies cannot pilot aircraft, or seafaring vessels. Unless of course, it started here.

1. There isn't much to choose from. Most firearms are illegal, and the nearest gun shop is a long way away. Melee weapons are useless against large hordes. I'd get a truck, so I can mow the zombies down. Also, I can haul a crapload of supplies. Since I'm not in a city, I can get to a relatively traffic-free highway. The plan: Haul arse and get to a small, faraway country town.

2. No. Most people would try to be badass heroes and fight. They'll die. I'll just keep on truckin'.

3. If any of them could tolerate my scabby face long enough, then they are welcome.

4. Supplies. I can't fight, and I admit it.

5. A range of gear, so I could deal with all types of weather. I wouldn't plan on direct combat with the zombies, so armour isn't so important.

First off... mad respect on the topic, lol.

I'm going to die unless a person or group takes me on as a medic.

Question 1: What sort of weapon would you prefer in a zombie apocalypse? What tactics do you prefer?
For individuals, guns and ammo. Why? I don't want them getting near me! Also, I would HAVE to have another weapon. Maybe a machete and a crowbar. I doubt I could wield a sword or heavy weapon. I would prefer to be in a small group, armed heavily and fortified.

Question 2: "A zombie apocalypse is more about surviving the other survivors". would you agree with this, or not?
Hmm, yes and no. I would certainly want to out-survive others, and would probably abandon my normal hippie and pacifistic and liberal ways for the purposes of survival.

Question 3: Is there any Crunchyroll memebrs you'd team up with if you had the chance to?
Possibly. I would have to meet them first before I would write a name down. I can't just trust someone in a zombie apocalypse that I've never met (and I've never met someone from CR).

Question 4: Which is more important: supplies, or weapons and security?
Oh man, that's tough. I would say weapons and security. I would think if you had weapons and security that you could get supplies more easily.

Question 5: What sort of protection/clothing would you wear during a zombie apocalypse?
Light clothing, but not skimpy. Enough to protect me from a scratch or bite-attempt (not a full on death grip bite). Appropriate for weather, so maybe a couple outfits. I would hate to die in a zombie apocalypse from hypothermia or something like that. Pockets are mandatory. Well-fitting military or swat boots. Enough covering for my arms, legs, torso, and if appropriate/feasible my neck as well and hell, I'd be willing to wear a helmet and look like an idiot if it would protect me and not weigh me down.

Question 1:For medium to long range combat and close range if I have lost my Battle ready katana/crowbar somehow. I would go for a crossbow or a WW2,22. caliber carbine riffle. After I have those I would find a mall or a school to hold up in cause the walls are thick and the doors are metal and heavy at both but there are large windows at both so i would barricade them as well as the doors after i have chained them and pad locked them shut.

Question 2: "A zombie apocalypse is more about surviving the other survivors". would you agree with this, or not?
I fully agree with this so I would hoard as much water food/grains/seeds weapons things for light and to fix/make other things and to keep me entertained ammo and medicinal herbs or medkits ear plugs and tooth past and other body cleaning supplies as I could.Same with other cleaning products and of course I would have bike or bottle powered steam generators and a chemical shitter and a portable shower cause the water and power would shut off after a while and I would always keep a pack packed and a crowbar or sword near an escape route in case I have to run at any time.

Question 3: Is there any Crunchyroll members you'd team up with if you had the chance to?
Nope I would not team up with any of you cause I cant trust you.

Question 4: Which is more important: supplies, or weapons and security?
Security and supplies are more important cause I'm not going to be going out
looking for fights and I would want weapons last so I could kill any one that tries
to get into my mall or school to kill me and to take my stuff.

Question 5: What sort of protection/clothing would you wear during a zombie apocalypse?
I would wear shark mail that goes up to my neck under a long dark colored long sleeved turtle necked shirt and chainmail gloves and booties.Under fingerless gloves and under my steel toed and heeled boots then a stab vest over that and a tight fitting over coat over that with lots of pockets and military issue urban combat pants and belt then I would have a swat/army helmet with the face shield and a gas mask under that somy face could not be scratched and so the mask could not be grabbed and a tight fitting black back pack that if it was grabbed I could get out of easilyby unhooking one or two clasps. so pretty much all black bullet/bite/scratch/stab/proof/burn resistant clothes.

Question 1: What sort of weapon would you prefer in a zombie apocalypse? What tactics do you prefer?

Weapons: M16 Rifle and a machete. This is a question of availability, I chose M16 and machete because those weapons are the most easiest to acquire (this includes the ammo of course.)

Tactics: Avoid being detected/Stay out of trouble. It is best to conserve ammo and energy.

Question 2: "A zombie apocalypse is more about surviving the other survivors". would you agree with this, or not?

Maybe. One must have careful consideration before adding member to your group.

Question 3: Is there any Crunchyroll members you'd team up with if you had the chance to?


Only 3. They are someone I know in rl.

Question 4: Which is more important: supplies, or weapons and security?

Weapons and security. Your life is irreplaceable. Supplies can be scavenge and rationed.

Question 5: What sort of protection/clothing would you wear during a zombie apocalypse?

A mechanic's jumpsuit or pilot's jumpsuit with light padding and combat boots if I'm on the move (always travel light.) Body armors when defending a fortified location.

1. Assuming you have access to any weapons, I would choose a sword, either a Wakizashi or Kodachi, or maybe something chinese like a Dao or Jian, or even a saber of some sorts. Katanas and proper european broadswords are nice, but they are kinda heavy and will slow you down. For firearms, a simple handgun like a Glock 18 (cause its easy to maintain, remember, real life guns need maitenence), or a simple pump action shotgun (same reason). Loud weapons shouldn't be used in the first place though, unless you just need to buy time or something.

2. It always depends. If you have lots of weapons (Like guns and swords, axes etc. knives should only be used for self defense), then having more people wont be a problem. But if you don't have enough supplies, you're just inviting disaster.

3. Don't really know anyone here...

4. Weapons. Security is meaningless if you can't go outside to look for supplies without getting eaten.

5. Stuff like shin guards, knee pads, will be a must, since running away in panic is just the kind of scenario that people easily get hurt in. Baggy clothing also gets in the way, getting it snagged on something is gonna be terrifying when you're in a heavily infected area. Also, you want to make as little sound as possible, so for example, nothing that that's gonna blow in the wind and make a rustling sound. Honestly though, for the rest it's just personal preference. If they're close enough to even get a scratch on you, then chances are you're dead anyways, and the only left to do is take as many as you can or kill yourself (I plan on seppuku, gotta go out like a samurai)

Question 1: What sort of weapon would you prefer in a zombie apocalypse? What tactics do you prefer?

Shotgun is a nice general weapon for a zombie apolcalypse.... But any weapon is fine with me... Knives, handguns, grenades, rifle, rpg, flamethrower, sniper, explosives, or w/e I can find

Question 2: "A zombie apocalypse is more about surviving the other survivors". would you agree with this, or not?

Geez this reminds me of the nightmare I had about zombies, freaking people I get stuck with freaking sucks balls... It was so frustrating I was about to end my life by opening the barracaded windows n let the zombies kill the group already -_-... If possible I would survive on my own, screw the logic about "the more people you have the better chances of surviving".

Question 3: Is there any Crunchyroll members you'd team up with if you had the chance to?

No, I wouldn't trust u fucks.... Nothing personal

Question 4: Which is more important: supplies, or weapons and security?

Weapons and security, I could find supplies easily if I had weapons.... Hell I might even kill a group of survivors for their supplies lol 0=)

Question 5: What sort of protection/clothing would you wear during a zombie apocalypse?

Zombie blood, if the zombies find people by there scent or sumthing like tht, then I would just toss myself in a puddle of zombie blood lol.... Other then tht basic riot armor should suffice

There is also a zombie survival quizz. Here's the link: http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/425802

Note: I'm using the 'pre-definite' version of the quizz. Which is more casual compared to the 2.00 version. If people want to take the second version instead, click ont he link and you'll see it pop up next to the flash.


Unoriginal, nerdy as all hell, but still good to flex our mental capacity through imagination.

Edit: typo.


Answer to Question 1: My main weapon is AR-15 Assault rifle; sidearm is SigSaur P226; and a Barrett M107A1 Sniper Rifle. For a close combat I prefer a spear for as the main weapon and side combat weapon is jungle knife. A stock of land mines would be great. Make a "fortress" surrounded with land mines for first line of defense. Use of a sniping rifle for those that gets past the land mines.

Answer to Question 2: It's cruel but true.

Answer to Question 3: Nope. I have not met anyone from Crunchyroll in person so... no.

Answer to Question 4: One of each is as important as the other two.

Answer to Question 5: An armor by which I can move freely and provides optimum protection from getting wounds; less body parts exposure and vulnerability.

Already took that quiz. I got a Z+.

Question 1: What sort of weapon would you prefer in a zombie apocalypse? What tactics do you prefer?
Stealth. I would use a high-tech crossbow (I actually have a friend who hunts, and he has one) and go for long-range kills. It's scoped, and even has one of those fancy shmancy laser-pointer-thingies. I'd just be survivin'....

Question 2: "A zombie apocalypse is more about surviving the other survivors". would you agree with this, or not?
Oh yes, indeed I would! Only two things are infinite - The universe, and human stupidity. As Einstein said...And, since humans like to kill, they're stupid. Which means they won't stop being dicks...Kinda like me. As a dick, that is. Not a killer.

Question 3: Is there any Crunchyroll members you'd team up with if you had the chance to?
I don't really know anybody, so no.

Question 4: Which is more important: supplies, or weapons and security?
Supplies. Anything can be a weapon, anything can be made into a weapon. Shelter can be easily found, but without supplies, it's all lost.

Question 5: What sort of protection/clothing would you wear during a zombie apocalypse?
Tight biker leather. I'd look like a douche, but it would work. I may get chainmail gloves, just because...

Oh, and tip to all the weeaboos: Swords don't cut through bone very well. They also dull quickly, and will easily rust. Try hacking through somebodies neck, it would be difficult, to say the least. A better melee weapon would be a crowbar or a bat, maybe a machete. Think of it like this: Take a tree branch, at least two and a half inches thick. Now, cut it in half. While it's moving. Then repeat about sixty times...
