For this scenario, this is you in your town that has become “Zombified”
What would you use as a weapon?
How would you get out?
What would you do when you got out?
SHARE THIS POST
Grab a kitchen and then go Psycho on the zombies. Too bad I don’t have easy access to firearms.
Obviously, everyone will try to go grab weapons…except, there aren’t any over here in Canada.
So say hello to cross/bows and baseball bats. However, you might not even need it; as zombies will kill themselves in a month or so…time to pack up on canned foods.
Dried apricots anybody?
What type of zombies? Shufflers or running zombies?
Fill my backpack full of Supplys and my Pockets full of Ammo
then i Grab My Gun and go to Town
Scenario clarification needed.
Im pretty safe I think.I got myself a firearm in house but only 4 clips of ammunition and I got a sharp sword which I have trained with the past 2 years.Not even a mile from my house is a military base which purpose is to train Commando’s.I guess that is the safest place to be in my area.
I’d grab my gun and a rake or shovel.
..then drive to the mall, I mean those large metal doors would be perfect for keeping out zombies… right?
Given my reliance on medication to keep me alive, unless that whole “Zombies are no more after a month” Scenario is instigated, I reckon I’ll be going down as the decoy while others more likely to survive make sure that the people important to me stay safe.
Fortunately I have archery training, and a slowly moving/bobbing target is well within my skills to hit. So looks like its “Make lots of noise, leave the lights on and hold up at home after a brief soujourn out to get food” before any needed suicide mission.,
So we are all in the same city.
Does that mean we are all together from the beginning?
Any way….me being the lurker I’m the one that sets up diversions for the zombies and runs away.
I once watched a movie where the zombies were fascinated by fireworks….so that gives me and idea of what to do to lurk my arse right out of town.
“Does that mean we are all together from the beginning?”
I don’t Know. Do you know anybody who has ever been to Bielefeld?
Looking around my room, possible weapons include a bowling pin, a lava lamp and two pet rats as bait. The city is a 20 minute drive away and there is one weapons shop that I know of there, which I’m assuming will have been looted.
Yeah I’m screwed.
“I don’t Know. Do you know anybody who has ever been to Bielefeld?”
You from Germany?
Anyhow, yeah, I’m screwed. I gots a slight heart condition….Which is why I quit soccer 5 years ago. Now, I just play for fun
“You from Germany?’
Oooh Close but no Cigar……I’m Australian Mate
yeah thats right i REad Cracked.com adn TVtropes just like anyother internet goer
I’d grab a backpack and get the essentials, grab my 20-gauge and some shells and go get a vehicle. Anybody live near Skandia, Michigan??
Lets see, we own an AK-47 with over a 1000 rounds, 3 different high powered hunting rifles, 1 12-gauge, 1 20-gauge, 1 410, and a couple .22′s and airguns. Anybody wanna come over and create our own colony?
Oh btw, I’m getting a Scoped Remington 870 12-gauge slug gun… so yeah.
“Anybody live near Skandia, Michigan??”
I live 407 miles away…
Do you by chance live in Afghanistan Eric Giglotti?? Because i’ll join that colony!!wherever you live.
Guess no one lives in the East, the nearest guy could be Siggymansz.
“Guess no one lives in the East, the nearest guy could be Siggymansz.”
Where you at I could borow my Friends Plane and fly over
“ets see, we own an AK-47 with over a 1000 rounds, 3 different high powered hunting rifles, 1 12-gauge, 1 20-gauge, 1 410, and a couple .22′s and airguns. Anybody wanna come over and create our own colony?”
….shit all i got is my Trusty Stevens Model 305 .22 Magnum
Anyway, why not make friends with the zombies!
I live in a 13 story building with a nice chokepoint in the lobby and all the apartments have steel doors. It is also unclimbable.
I’ve got my trusty M-16 with me and my father has 4 handguns and a shitload of ammo. My dad also happens to be highly proficient with said handguns (was ranked #28 in the practical shooting world championship a few years back).
Plus we’ve got a supermarket in the neighborhood, and a large university across the street, and since this is israel we’re talking about half the neighborhood has military training (but alas, few guns unless in active service).
There is of course the alternate scenario where I’m at the base when the shit hits the fan, at which case I’m surrounded by about 400 soldiers armed with M-16′s, MG’s, 50 cals and a wide variety of armed light vehicles, trucks, APC’s, mobile artillery pieces (which are built like light tanks with huge cannons and an MG on top) and alphas (munition trucks on tracks with an MG on top).
Cargo has a point. No one’s ever tried to become friends with them.
This being Modern Britain, the people calling the shots on this island are too afraid of us to allow us either guns or proper support in this scenario.
Likely, Fife will be left to rot whilst england gets a lot more attention, the people in the highlands would be fine anyway (Its basically an area built to be zombie resistant, well, as resistant as possible in Britain)
As for me, I live in an area where there are very few places which I could use as an effective fortress or bunker, the hall has too many entrances, the school suffers from the same issue, the houses aren’t really designed to resist constant siege…
On the other hand, I can make do with what I have. My house has a stairway that I could easily use as a chokepoint, and I have a stash of melee weapons in my room, not to mention kitchen tools downstairs, gardening tools in the shed and all manner of crap in the garage.
Since I know my way about the town itself, I would not attempt to move out of town for at least a week. I would attempt to find other survivors however, and a secondary priority would be checking in on the farm uphill, as the farmer has a shotgun permit, and at least one shotgun and ammunition.
In the weeks time, I would attempt to keep an eye on the news until the power cuts out, and keep a radio operating on batteries for the news after that. I would also prepare my bike for travel and (If anyone is still alive) look for bikes for survivors as well.
After that week, I would (In several trips) move supplies to Balvaird Caslte (A scottish tower house style castle a few miles outside of town. I am unfamiliar with the interior of the castle (As it is usually locked) but have visited the exterior many times. The interior should hold a lot of supplies, however, and if I can get a hold of one of the farmers shotguns (And adequate ammunition) I would have a good view of the surrounding area from the battlements from which to defend the castle.
The castle would also be easy to seal from within, so I could effectively wait until I see the military passing by. After I see the military, I would wait long enough to study their intentions, as I have no way of knowing if they are simply mopping up survivors (And yes, I would fully expect those asshats in parliament to try something like that). If they are friendly, I would signal to them from the castle (As they would be less likely to accidentally shoot me). If they are hostile, I would hide in the castle for as long as I could, However, If I saw them approaching, I would move into the nearby woods until the danger had passed.
Oh, and my lack of access the British public to firearms (A ban that I hope someone is burning in hell for) has only left us more time to develop melee skills. (So even I, a weak little thing, have knowledge of how to use my beloved shovel correctly)
Hmm… If I find myself with looted transport, I’ll make my way to Scotland and help i dunno with that whole “Defending a castle from zombies” idea.
I’d grab a shotgun and defend myself. Additionally, The Zombie Survival Guide becomes my favorite how-to guide.
“Hmm… If I find myself with looted transport, I’ll make my way to Scotland and help i dunno with that whole “Defending a castle from zombies” idea.”
Like I said, Its a tower house castle, its sitting right on the top of a small hill (Gently sloping, but enough to slow down approaching zombies). The main building is fine, and very well preserved at that, but most of the little ruins next to it are…well…ruins…
Well, I have a sword and thats about it for weapons, no idea where the nearest gun store is but I can hide in my celler for a while or just drive my mums car to somewhere else
All i have is a stick
Well I have a gun store thats about a 20 minute walk away, I guess after I’m armed I’d head to the mall like all survivors do.
Also what zombies are they ?
George A. Romero zombies – These guys can be outrun by anyone really, as long as over confidence doesn’t get you then you’ll survive until the infection is over.
28 days/weeks later – Would definately try to stick with atleast one other person, and wouldn’t camp in one place too long. But could survive for about 4-5 weeks if I played it smart.
Left 4 Dead – Seriously, I think I’d just end it myself. If I can find four people rather quickly then I’ll give surviving a shot, but I doubt I would make it down my road to find other live people. There may be some hope though, assuming the Green Flu breaks out like it does in the original L4D then the special infected wouldn’t be around until 2 weeks after the first infection.
Perfect to try out my latest invention, the David Cameron Beam!
i wonder how it will fair against the undead…
Dunno how I’d survive as no scenario has been set, but im guessing the original classic slow moving zombies. If so, I might stand a chance of surviving. Without a gun ( Closest I have to a fire arm are four tank and artillery shells in my shed ) or a firearms shop near me that I know off, It might be a bit hard. But, as my family being big sports fans, they’re are loads of cricket bats, stumbs, etc scattered around the house. With our Nissan X Trail in the garage and house full of cricket bats, I could hold out…
I think the most powerful zombies are the I am Legend zombies they run fast and they’re pretty damn strong. plus the infection is airborne.
as for weapons my uncle has a Glock and they’res a police station nearby so that would be a smart place to camp it out.
In my area are several apartment buildings(which has two apartments in one building.) So if the infection reaches my building i won’t have alot of time to get out(though i do live on the second floor.Their are also only two exits.The main one has a single door with a small lobby,and another with a small passageway.
I also lack firearms(not that i would use it much).Assumming i can make it out,i could probably hide out near the river.I could hunt wild rabbits,or perhaps cook up a dead bird?
Regardless,I should have enough resources to last for awhile,but not long.
However,assuming that these zombies can’t swim,New york happens to have a few islands,if i can get to them of course.
thank for putting it up admin
well this is meant to be in a few scenarios, to test the adaptability of your own plan
as such there will be classic zombies, and rage zombies, in 2 different scenario
also to address the are we alone question, once again 2 scenarios, we are all together with what ever weapons we actually have (not looted), and 1 where we are alone and have free reign to get what u can from near where you live, any more question just ask, ill post my plan soon
since cars will b useess bc everyone is trying it, ill take a horse from across the street and ride it to the pawn and gun on lithia and 60, while my family stays here bording up the house, i take bags and wear leather(hard to bite through) and my machete, i get the guns then i come back, if my family is still alive we take the horses and head to the keys or the dock to get aboat taking what i can food wise and come back for more supplie periodically or go 2 another country where it hasnt broke out this is only my plan for myself, havent worked up 1 for us, but if u fin flaws please tell me so i can correct them
I live out in the country so I can hide (no I don’t live in Afghanistan – Hartland MI). The best bet would be to hide away and let all the zombies die of starvation.
that only works with rage zombies
yeah resident evil zombies can last decades without food.
Just normal zombies?
That is to easy….
I live in Bedstuy, Brooklyn, NY. My neighborhood is basically overrun with blood thirsty gang members. You got the bloods, the crips, the latin kings, and a few other gangbanging tards. So guns are quite easy to come by. Just go to one the guys down the hall. Actually the zombies would be idiots to come around here. Don’t particularly matter which breed they are save for Return of The Living Dead variety which could talk, think, and require large amounts of electricity to kill.
“how so?” I live in texas and I live in a small town.
I have more ammo than zombies and standard are slow moving and really stupid.
fair enough and rage zombie
you might b right but gangster arent exactly the most dependable or smartest people, just food for thought
also though they are not deadites, they would also be a problem since u mentioned other zombies, most guns would be useless
Of course, If it turns out that its Rage zombies/L4D zombies, its a different story
In that scenario, I just load as much supplies into as many cars as possible in the quickest time I can along with everyone who is still alive, drive at 70 mph up to Balvaird Castle, bash the door open, load god damn near everything and everyone into the castle and jam the entrance into the castle with as much crap as possible.
Then hopefully I have enough time to think up a proper plan…
I live in the middle of the country/woods I have a few shotguns so I’m safe. The only problem I see is me going to Walmart and places like that in the nearby towns and resupply myself. If I’m allow to get outside help than my Cousins and their friends where ever they settle themselves and fortifed thier position we can hold out for a good long while. If things get too bad we might either relocate ourselves to the mountains of North Carolina or one of the Outer Banks of NC.
if its Rage zombies i will hide
if its L4D zombies i will follow I dunno
nailgun, hammer, mining clothes, e-tool, bowie knife, fold out solar pannels, two way radio.
book store/library, gas station/s.
I Live In The Hight Desert in California, in a Backwater town, While i am Not so good at fighting i know a few Things that could help against zombies ,
Here is What I would do
Their are Very Few Houses around me so as to minimize zombie interaction
Also Got a Chain Link fence(out front) and High Brick Wall (around back) of my home, While a Chain link fence would Not Stop a zombie horde, it would stop the Few Coming from the Houses around me, Not to Mention my home is one of the Flat-top Adobe types. If All Else Fails Their is a Marine Base Only an Hour away from where i live, Witch im sure would be well Protected And Fortified
holding up in any one area sounds like a death trap.
good point no place is safe, just safer
that’s normally everyones plan, hide somewhere.
unless you’re a meddeling gardener, carpenter, mechanic, and nurse all in one that isn’t a good idea. eventually you have to forage for supplies, someone will get hurt, or something will break.
that’s why i say hit the library, find survival guides, thing to help you forage for supplies. use tools that won’t break, and will always be useful. don’t carry anything heavy, target places that are plentiful, like gas stations, always have canned food, water, nails, almost anything you need.
Hmm,I could prevail over zombies considering that I have a number of Close Combat Weapons in the house.
Problem is,what happens when zombie bites me?
My house is a shithole in the terms of defense.
So I conclude that I must run and rely on stealh.
I just fixed my router, anyway back on topic, I would get my army tank, call in more, load all of the Factpilers in them, get to the ships I have docked, and loaded with food, water, atmosphere, and gas masks, most of all computers for us to go on FACTPILE Anyway I think Admin could take them while we take refuge, because Admin could defeat them by himself, but with us getting in his way …
I’ll use a shotgun, since that’s the best weapon for fighting zombies. I’ll try to avoid the zombies whenever possible and try to make my way to a fortified structure or area with low population like a countryside. I’ll pick up a survival guide. Lone wolf mentality.
i recommend a shotgun, a side arm, and a melee weapon to be safe
Sorry admin, but we on the topia are already one step ahead
M1014 Shotgun, Smith & Wesson 16 shot pistol, Samurai Sword, MedKit, Backpack full of food, water, and ammo. I would stay on my feet, rest only when in concealed rooftop, and Stay Alive!!!
I could, but I would need my group…By the way how are they doing?
i thought taht was dead a long time a go lol good to see its still up
sounds good now how do you get them?
Well….I live in Kentucky so of course I’m never less than 3 feet from a weapon at all times!!! Theres shit loads of shotguns and hunting rifles in my house and I also have an aluminum baseball bat…so yeah I got the whole weapon thing covered. To get out I would sneak up on the zombies and kick them in the Jimmy(need a different stategy for female zombies though)and when there down I would finish the job with a bullet or my bat. When I get out I will go to the secret Kentucky laboratory and unfreeze Colonle Sanders’ body and then we kick zombie ass as a team!!!
In addition to the M-16 and 4 sidearms I have in the house I’ve also got a 1 handed african mace specifically designed to crack open skulls, a huge closet full of all sorts of tools, a light kevlar vest, an army helmet, a blast layer vest (a thin metallic layer with a tough cloth cover, meant to stop shrapnel and soften blunt trauma), a combat vest (basically a bunch of pouches on adjustable straps, can be worn over a light protective vest), leather “biker gloves”, and at least 3 replica swords that can be sharpened using the tools I have at home.
Not too shabby if I do say so myself…
i see alot of vest what are you covering your arms with?
I forgot to mention I have an axe and a sledgehammer….and an Austrailian hat….which makes me look more badass while I’m killin’ me some zombies.
I think I might survive. . .Firearms aren’t that far away and I know how to shoot a gun. . .Get in a car and drive as far away as possible. Tell me, is there a military quarentine?
i recommend a nailgun, because its quiet, and a 6 inch nail will do the job. not to mention nails are alot eaiser to find than bullets.
as for clothes, i live in the heart of of the coal industry, all the items i listed i have sitting no more than 30 feet away, oh yeah, on point. if something can bite/claw through these clothes then it would completely fuck me up regardless.
people who keep carrying guns tend to forget, they weight ALOT. ammo, WIEGHS ALOT. ammo, ISN’T EASY TO TRANSPORT.
cars arent ver useful when everyones on the road, but that my opinion, and yes they are working on it as of 12 hours in and its not complete yet
Who said by car??? I have. . . Other methods.
Wait, I posted car. . .My bad. I don’t live in the center, but rather the outskirts. If I had maybe an hour to modify my vehicle. . .
u make a good point but i just cant see nails at being as effective as guns, thought the may be
I have a big container of gasoline(don’t get the wrong idea, I use it for the lawnmower). I could just pour it all over the ground, take one of my parent’s lighters, and then those zombies will be crispier than a bucket of KFC.
time is of the essence if you want to survive the longer u take the more zombie sthere are
dude if this were real i’d be like the badass who rips of the zombie’s neck while taking a shit and making it look as if a 2 year old can do it…you know why….CAUSE I’M THE FUCKING BADASS OF FACTPILE THATS WHY
i’m a beast when i’m in the
OK how many people actually think that Chuck is badass?!?
I live in San Francisco,a few minutes away from my job.
I could probably get to an armored car,drive it to the airport,get a helicopter,and fly to the motherland.
Shouldn’t be many zombies in the Ruins.
why dont we just keep this on subject?
I was on subject.
“the longer u take the more zombie sthere are”
Well Do rage zombies go at a pace I can out walk them?
I’m also pretty decent at creating makeshift weapons. One time I made bow out of a curved tobbacco stick and a hooked elastic rope.
Aren’t you a police Officer? if you are then you’ll have plenty on weapons. : )
Updates that won’t stay there becuase they are from mangastream.
“OK how many people actually think that Chuck is badass?!?”
i wasnt talking to you sorry
no rage zombie run as fast as there bodies can, pushng the human body to the limit, but not faster than a human, plus they congregate
@SS so if it’s a fat guy then the zombie will still be slow?
Your answer doesn’t count. Well being from Kentucky I could just do this to the zombies.
faster than classic zombies but ya, rage zombies started with 28days later day later i think, either way watching the movie is a good source of info on them, such as they can climb and you have 10-20 seconds to kill an dinfected person before they change into one of them, no time for debates
I wouldn’t need weapons like the rest of you losers …I’d just beat the tar out of them with these “holds up fists”
I do count
“and an Austrailian hat”
Your talking about a Boonie righ? Cool. I have at least 12 Australian hats…..(as they were all bought in Australia…Duh)
“i recommend a shotgun, a side arm, and a melee weapon to be safe”
actually Shotguns are one of the worst weapons
1. There ammo is Heaver then other ammo
2.not many Wallmarts Stock Buckshot (or most other Shotgun shells)
(Shells are rare)
3.take longer to Reload
4. for the same weight as 100 shells you could be carrying ALOT more .22 Rounds
Oh and where the Fuck are people meant to get Shotguns AND a Sidearm
I had to swim through a Year and a half of Red tape just to get MY Gun!!!
“dude if this were real i’d be like the badass who rips of the zombie’s neck while taking a shit and making it look as if a 2 year old can do it
More like the Other way around Dumbass
(nobody likes a “Hero” so why don’t you put some money where you mouth is)
“people who keep carrying guns tend to forget, they weight ALOT. ammo, WIEGHS ALOT. ammo, ISN’T EASY TO TRANSPORT.
No Shit. Realisticly I would fill my Backpack full of Food,Water and my First aid kit
plus a Box or two of Ammo IF i could fit it, I could fit another box into each pocket MAYBE if i was wearing my Cargo pants (I could run with that weight……just not fast)
If i wasn’t wearing my cargo pants then I would have to just stick with the 2 Boxes of ammo
(realisticly I could only carry 4 boxs + gun + a days worth of Food and water…)
“ime is of the essence if you want to survive the longer”
is everyone but Us (factpilers) Zombies?. if not I reckon Y friend i mentioned earlier is still alive. It would be easy to just fly in his plane over to some mountain somewhere and just live there as a Hermit…………course i would need to get food and water
i recommend a nailgun, because its quiet, and a 6 inch nail will do the job. not to mention nails are alot eaiser to find than bullets.”
Smart……..sadly I don’t have a Nailgun and I don’t think i could risk a Trip down to the Hardwarre store given its location
But i do have a Gun so…thats what i’m going with
(Ties in with the fact that SS said your wonly alowed what you actually Own)
My Plan: in greater Detail but not too Much Detail
Step 1: Grab a Backpack My gun and a Hat
Step 2: Fill the Backpack with Food,Water,Ammo
Step 3: Look outside the window, If the zombies are filling the street I go out back and jump Fences
Step 4: Find some form of Transportation
Step 5: Gun it to My Friends place (lives out in a farm in a 4 hour Drive)
Step 6: see if Friend is alive If so we both get in our plane and Fly to Hawaii or someplace
Step 6a: if my Friend is a Zombie or Dead I shoot the body and Drive to..the Derwent Barracks.
Step 7: if the Barracks is over-run Head to the Others
Step 8: if they are Over-Run then i try to loot a Hand powerd Radio
Step 9: Find survivors………(which i doubt i would find)
Step 10: head for the Docks and Get myself a Boat
Step 11: Fill it with Supplys the last me at least a 6 month Journey
Step 12: sail the High Seas as a Pirate Moose…….and Gather the Factpilers and More boats
@Chuck(if you don’t want me to call you thank then please tell me)
what if they bite your hand?
“dude if this were real i’d be like the badass who rips of the zombie’s neck while taking a shit”
“i’m a beast when i’m in the
Is your DAYNGA ZONEEE the bathroom?
On the Zombie subject, there are two general plans. One is to hide and the other is to run.
If you try to hide, either get to some military base, or a prison.
Military bases are obvious, they’re secure, and with weapons.
The Prison would have weapons, a cafeteria like the military base, and you could lock yourself into a cell.
Not to mention that prisoners are geniuses at making weapons, such as shotguns out of magazines and match heads.
If you try to run, I would stay in a secluded, forest area. The Zombies would be incredibly unlikely to go to an unpopulated area, and the forest would have a lot of food.
true a nail gun is’t that smart to use.and if you can get you’re hands on a Striker or tank you should be safe. and 1 question how big is the boat?
no red tape when your looting, and 22s might not do enough damage unless they get in the skull and bounce around if im wrong correct me there
“Oh and where the Fuck are people meant to get Shotguns AND a Sidearm”
The non-legal way to have the right to bare arms.
Do we get a death star?
the most safe place is on a Aircraft Carrier the USS Roosevelt. they’res no way they can get you there.
careful humans can be more dangerous than zombies
