Yeah, those people that are using survive as their answer for this would probably slit your throat and steal your stuff in a heartbeat. At least if they are serious about survival in this situation. Or maybe they meant survive together?

My answer is either survive or survive together. So in a zombie apocalypse, I would probably murder you if you weren't one of my companions, if you couldn't make yourself useful to me. I would never trust you though. There is no honor among survivors.

Sorry for the double post.

If the zombies can hear, you will only attract more. The more you attract, the more you must shoot, thus causing a cycle of zombie attraction that only ends once you are defenseless. Of course, who knows what senses zombies would have. I'm guessing they would specialize in sight. Just think if they could track living things through scent. Nobody would survive. So you should really be afraid of a zombie dog apocalypse. I guess many wild carnivores would also work. Swords would be a bad idea unless you've had training. Depending on your strength, a bludgeoning weapon might be a better choice. Knives would be stupid because as a small weapon, they don't have the killing power or the range of a larger weapon.

Regardless of the zombies' senses, guns would be a bad choice unless you have an infinite ammo cheat. So if you're going with guns, just be sure to have a backup weapon.


Using a melee weapon in a fight with zombies is stupid. A zombie isn't going to square off with you one on one. He and about 30 buddies are going to mob rush you, grapple you to the ground, and eat you.

A gun gives you the ability to take down many and at range, the two exact things you'll need. If you can get a silencer so much the better, but TBH I don't think zombies will be attracted to large bang noises. Why would they be attracted to loud noises if they are reduced to the capabilities of animals? Animals run from gunfire. A gun also gives you the ability to easily commit suicide if things become hopeless.

Sure, guns run out of ammo; It's a bad situation all over, that's why they call it the zombie APOCALYPSE. I still wouldn't give up my gun, and if I offered one to you in that situation lets be honest, you'd take it without thinking twice.

It's shitty people like that who would die first. If you get a rep for being treacherous in a martial law situation, you can kiss your ass goodbye. Other folk will take you down quick.

exactly my point. swords are the best because they aren't loud. you shoot one zombie, the noise calls over 10 more. it's attirition warfare. i would have something else for long range or something like that, but guns are too loud. maybe i would get a crossbow and go retrieve the ammo after i shot it.

zombies are rotted bodies. thier bones and such aren't as stable as they used to be. it would not be as hard to do.

Bones won't rot. Yep, training in sparring is definitely useful when decapitating numerous bodies.

well, how do swords even kill regular people then? and as long as you cut connection to the brain, they're dead. and i didn't say i was gonna rush out in to a crowd of 50 zombies. i would just kill the ones in my way. and i wouldn't ONLY use a sword. i would use a gun if i had to. swords are just more efficient to kill small numbers.
and no offense, but you're kind of a negative person.

Why exactly are you positive about a situation that will most certainly get you killed?

I'll drop the sword talk here, not going anywhere.

Ah. In that case a monster truck with a nuclear reactor and a huge cage on its back filled with long-life foods and drinks.

I really wouldn't be able to kill anyone except in defense of myself or my companions.

My idea of a zombie apocalypse doesn't include bounty hunters or any information network. If you kill someone, nobody goes looking for them. Nobody knows, nobody cares. Everybody is only trying to stay alive. Those that can't kill, die. Of course, I don't think a zombie apocalypse could ever actually happen.

As for your other point. Guns put you in the same situation as melee weapons, you are right though, if you handed me a gun and some ammo, I would take it without question. Zombies don't have fight or flight responses, they wouldn't run. They would probably be drawn to any stimuli. I do believe that since we derive most of our information from sight, they would also have better eyes than ears or noses. But they might still be able to smell their food.

Everyone's best bet is to go to an extremely low population area. That would take care of all arguments about zombie swarms and the relative effectiveness of different types of weapons. If there were only 50 people in an area, there would only be at most 50 + migrating zombies in the area. As long as you play it safe, you would only run into 1 to 3 while scavenging.

In most zombie lore zombies aren't intelligent. But if it really happened, for all we know they could keep their intelligence and just have an intense craving for flesh. If zombies had enough organizational skills to team up effectively, we would all be screwed. They'd probably set up their own government and army. Maybe they would raise us as livestock or as slaves, since their population is dependent on our population to exist. Or maybe zombies could have working reproductive systems. Who knows? It hasn't happened yet. All arguments are ultimately stupid in this topic. This is the last time I will post here.
