There is also an MMO in alpha right now called DayZmod. In that game you can craft pretty much whatever you pick up into a zombie fighting tool. It puts a nice twist on MMO crafting and zombie apocalypse games. Cuz in reality people that don't own guns or can't will need to scavenge and use what they find for selfdefense.

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.


geez man, i was just trying to come up with a fun topic to talk about. and you're right though, if zombies were anything like they are in some movies like 28 days later or i am legend, we would all be screwed.

Also, ammo is finite and we have to assume that the number of zombies is not.

I'd shoot myself.

I doubt I'd be able to survive for long anyway.

You sound like you have a weak and easily manipulated persona. I think I would find you and lock you away from anything that could hurt you and force you to cook me spaghettios.

lol oh god, well in an ideal situation sure your plan would be great. I like how you nonchalantly say "and i guess maybe we will go pick up our girl friends and find a place with lots of food." I don't think you know the extent of the situation. You would most likely be the first to die (by another human) or turn to a zombie, for real. What you need are guns, not swords, first to use against other humans because THEY will be just as much an enemy as the zombies will. If you use a sword on zombies it will only last about 20-30 swings and that's pushing it (and don't give me that "its a 1000 fold katana" crap) You saying it would be "fun" obviously means you have no idea what it would be like. Maybe in your fantasy apocalypse it would be fun, but most likely not. You need to be smart, DONT go to a place with lots of food, you will only find trouble because everyone else has the same idea, and YOU are taking THEIR food so fights would break out over who gets what. You need survival gear, a backpack full of fire starting stuff, med kit, lots of seeds to farm with, tools, a couple knives and a hatchet, rope, canned food/ low parish rate food, lots of ammo, .22 would be good to hunt game, a tarp, few bottles of high proof alcohol (to drink and disinfect) salt, pretty much make a 60 pound pack (like a military pack) and THEN steal a TRUCK, so you can go into the mountains or some wooded area wwaaaaay away from any cities or towns. The only good idea you had was bringing someone with you, having a few people makes it safer and you wont loose your mind from loneliness. Always be on guard though, because if someone gets bit and doesnt tell you, it could spell disaster for you all. Sorry, I've put a lot of time thing about a Z day

In this game you REALLY want to leave guns and explosives alone unless you are setting a diversion. Not just humans become zombies, all wildlife has the potention to be zombified, which sucks cuz you can't hunt for food since the wildlife are all zombies. You have to eat cockroaches and scavenge food onlyu from grocery stores. Without erradicating zombies mankind will have to get good at deepsea fishing or we are all gonna die from starvation.

wow. well i would get other weapons. if you read some of my earlier posts, i would use guns, but only if i had to. they're loud and would attract more zombies.
and also i know me thinking it would be kinda fun is really wierd, but it's not about the whole zombie thing. i would like to just slaughter mindless bodies preferably. this is just the closest thing to it.
