So it turns out zombies are cool. To avoid spamming up the TWD topic, let's just dump all the zombie-related discussion here.

To start things off, here's my zombie apocalypse kit:


Melee: Aluminum bat

Sidearm: .45 cal. pistol (faster than reloading in tense situations)

Main weapon: Something with the following properties;
-Low maintenance
-Low recoil
-Select-fire
-5.56 hollow point ammunition (or 7.62 if recoil is low)
-ACOG 4x scope
-Suppressor

Equipment: Breaching shotgun, crowbar (silent breach), 24h food supply, 10l camelbak, bite/scratch/knife-resistant clothing (kevlar?), knife (avoid combat use)

i will be more of a "Shelther guy"

So i will probaly find myself the best location for a good bunker and long term survival

Some criteria=
-One entry and 2 exits(Window)
-Preferably off the ground
-A window with no acces to the ground(but openable for a ladder to be placed as an emergency exit)
-Entry should be accesable by a standard stairs(easy defendable) with a preference to a ladder
-a toilet(or makeshift one that dumps everything to the ground!)
-A bed
-huge place for storing
-And a century amount of toilet paper and alchohol hand cleaner

Food=
-Canned food
-Vitamin supplements
-Tonnes of water
-Something to catch rainwater
-A stove, preferably wood and cutelary to boil water and prepare food
-Storage for firewood

As for equipment for defending and outdoors

Melee
-a good machete as primary melee and as secondary melee a kukri. Both are multifunctional tools wich get the job done

Sidearm
-Preferably a 9mm one, since this is the most popular cartigde in Belgium and europe (US has .45 as better option). In wich a FN GP(Browning hi-power) seems a good choise. Maybe equipped with a strong flashlight, it might blind zombies

Primary weapon
-FN FAL
FN FAL because of the high avaibility of 7.62x51 NATO and .308 winchester ammo in belgium. Very accurate and powerfull with single shot. Also good reliability and can be mounted with bayonet

OR

-AK 47 (Preferably AKM , East german AKM or Yugoslavian
7.62x39 ammo is easy to find in gunshops. And in huge quantities. Its often said the AK is very inaccurate. I call this bullshit as i fired my own in Poland. Single shot it is accurate enough for any standard range and with 3 round bursts its an amazing weapon.
Also very reliable and rarely needs cleaning! (exept when firing corrosive millsurp ammo)
Also the bayonet is also a very usefull wirecutter. The type 1 Bayonet is long enough to be usefull, while the type 2-3 knifes are usefull in other situations

(Bottom one type 1, middle type 4, top type 3)

OR
-Any SMG, like the PPSH, Sten or vigneron. For 9mm ammo sakes

Equipment=
-Leather outfit (We all know why)
-Flares (Yes Flares!)
-matches and other survival shit
-Food and water. A good camelbag as mentioned by biiviz is the best thing you can have.
-toiletpaper(YES)


The best way to survive is to avoid them. These things need food, these things must be vurnable to cold. I say wait it out and let nature kill them

Also search for survivor girl to spend the cold nights with  ;D

Probably sharpening one of the long bayonets I have and use it. Almost no working firearms available in the safe and glorious banana kingdom of the Netherlands. I do live in the part where the population is at it's lowest, that's positive.

As I posted in the Walking dead thread I would take:

- Clevers
- Some Metal pipe or the like (I really think you will get stuck with anything else in the Zombies at some point. Bloody hell, I can´t even cut bread properly - it´s either cut to thick or a destroyed something).
- Gloves and thick protection clothing
- I´m realistic about firearms, I won´t find them
- A big Jeep or SUV with a big grid in front for movement and then of course fuel
- Canned food and water

Well, if we're going with realistic options on firearms I'd have to steal a car and go to my parents house where I have my shotgun, my dad's shotgun and my mother's scoped .22 LR.

I wonder what the halflife on a zombie is?  I mean, they are for all intents and purposes walking corpses, so decay is going to set in pretty quickly and soon they'll all be far too rotted or gnawed upon to move.  So you only have to hold out for so long before the area will be safe (though obviously there will still be the odd one or two hanging about - but not more than you can handle).

As for armament, well, I'm partial to any large cutting implement: assuming I'm not away at uni I can have access to shotguns, billhooks, chainsaws, axes etc.  A sledge axe might be nice to use assuming there aren't too many zombies about - it's basically a sledge hammer with one head replaced with an axe blade.  I'd also have my entrenching tool.  Still, you'd probably want to stay out of the way as much as possible.  Wait till it dies down a bit and then go do whatever 'shopping' you need to do.

Yep. In a "realistic" scenario we would be talking about more of a '28 days later'-ish biological or chemical agent that causes uncontrollable rage. The laws of physics and biological limitations would still be applicable on the subject, i.e. lack of blood flow, severely damaged muscles, lack of oxygen/chemicals to the brain etc. would effectively render the subject incapacitated. Of course, this is only how I look at it. One could imagine a cancer-like mutation that causes cells to regenerate at an extreme rate, or some such.

im also realistic, I would NEVER find a gun, the closest police station is 30 minutes on foot and knowing the pansy Im, the first hours/days of the outbrake I will be, with my neighbors, barricating our apartament building, gathering food from the supermarked, stealing fuel from abandoned  cars, then parking cars exactly next to the exit, put carrs in front of the main entrances/small streets to make a choke point in case of a horde attack, also easy to defend.

use the fuel to power the generators on the basement and get electric power to cook or lights when needed. do small runs to the supermarked until it gets empty or to risky.

Best would be something like Stryker, or LAV changed into caravan. With food supply for week at least.

Military surplus stores must have created the whole zombie apocalypse genre, they have benefited so much from it.

Anyone read World War Z?

World War Z was a pretty good read. It was interesting how people survived and the winter months were the ones filled with less mobile zombies.

I'd recommend it for any zombie lover.
