You might be able to take on one zombie, but many zombies and your dead. The average human might last a couple days during the infection.

Well, I own a katana & a baseball bat so.

You own a katana? That is simply just not fair, you know I want a katana Sad.

I live in England where nothing dangerous is legal so I'm gonna have to try and meet up with all you heavily armed people. Doubt I'll do much better than a potato peeler round here!

One of my plans is to:

I'm going to gather up people that I think could be of use to me. My family, I will temporarily send with someone that I trust to be taken care of, while me & the others try & find somewhere to make shelter for a while. I will want to have a couple weapons, on me, but have more stored away, sent with my family, & the others who are going to be helping me. I would like to have a crossbow. Katana. Baseball bat. & A bunch of bottles of liquor to make molotofs out of. I believe, in my mind, that zombies react off of sound. We would lay low, move quickly, & stay as quiet as possible, for as long as we could; which means we would not use a gun, unless we must. The place I would be looking for, would most likely be something like an underground bomb shelter or something along those lines. I would store up a ton of food & water, but also locate the nearest store; for rare visits that we may need to use. After we make sure that the place is secure, we would contact the family & help guide them to where we are, safely. Whether that means that we have to go & get them or not. I'm not saying that once we find this shelter, that we are just going to stop being cautious. With a world covered in zombies, you must always be alert. No matter what. That is only one of my plans, I always have more than one.

About your weapons, there are a couple of things I would change about them, especially the Katana. Katanas nick very easily and once you are done killing several zombies, your katana will be just a handle. Also, crossbows require a bit of upkeep, and unless you know how, repairing it can be a pain. Not even mentioning loading it, which takes a while if you are not very strong, like me. There is also about aim. It is kind of hard to hit a target a crossbow without the right training, not even mentioning hitting a small target like the brain. So unless you are good with a crossbow, i do not recommend it as your long distance weapon. Now about the bat. That is a good weapon to get out of a bad situation, but it will be hard to wield it effectively unless you have some strength (again, unlike me). The bat will also wither away pretty quickly, and will soon turn into a sliver of wood. I myself would probably use my bat, but mine has nails in it, and is reinforced with strips of metal. I do like your choice about the Molotov cocktails though. My personal weapon choices are my machete, my survival knife, and my own personal gas powered nail gun. I would not take the chance myself of going around and not finding a bomb shelter that was not already in use by other survivors. I would stay at my zombie proof house and wait until they all rot to death. But it is good you are planing.Smile A lot of people I know are not even making plans!

I am going to hell because i dare to question bronze-age goat herders, and think for myself.

RE: Zombie Apocalypse Plans?
@ calmyourtitsbro

I see you have no idea about zombiclipse... Since I am an expert and have already planed everything, let me say a few things... Smile

First of all, you can not choose the people who will survive with you. You can not take your family and a person who will take care of you, because if that kind of apocalypse fall down on us, you will be happy if you survive. After you survive you have to search for other survivals. I have come up with a plan a long time ago and have a meeting point already in place for me and my friends, so whoever survives, we know where to meet up, no calls or searching necessary.

Weapons:
- Katana - first of all you will never even see a katana in your life, you can only see some poor replicas. That is almost the same thing as any other sword. If you do not have special training in use of katana, you will do no damage with it, katana is a worthy weapon only in hands of those who know how to use it. You need to get really close, so it is also not a good choice.
- Baseball bat - you need to get really close and you have to swing pretty hard to crack the skull open. Also, a technique for swinging is very important, so if you never used a bat, or have a small physique, it is not a good choice.
- Molotovs are a great idea, no argument there.

You all keep forgetting that zombies are slow walkers, so running and avoiding them should be no problem at all, specially if you have a car, croos-motor, or a bike.

What you need to do is break into police station, army warehouse or someones house where you know you will find weapons and ammo. Then you need some food, a sniper and a high ground. My meeting point is an astronomical station on a mountain near my town. No way anybody gets up there before a bullet meets them. Other good places are islands, once you clear an island, you are safe and free. If you do not have that opportunity, pick one building, barricade it, close it all, nobody gets in or out. Then you clean it, apartment by apartment. There will be a ton of useful things in those apartments, so once you cleaned it, you use and take what you need, make a shelter, or just move in the best apartment in the building. If you gathered enough ammo and a sniper, get to the roof of the building and start cleaning you city. You'll have a hell of a job to do, but don't worry. Since zombies are clumsy, you can move from building to building with a little bit of planing and equipment and those slow walkers can never follow you. Surviving a zombiclipse is a piece of cake, just don't plan things with specific people, they are not guaranteed to survive with you and stay away from melee weapons, they should be used only in emergency close combat.

Good movies about zombies are Shaun of the dead and Zombieland. Others are just stupid. Zombieland can teach you the most important lesson, kardio. Get your running skills up, if you can't run, you can't survive, simple as that.

Also, I like the TV series Walking dead, but they are all a bunch of uninformed idiots, I get frustrated all the time how stupid they all are. I have a feeling they never saw any zombie movie in their life.

Smile

P.S.

@ Teifel999

Whoever gave you the idea that katana can break easily? You are very uninformed, IF we are talking about a Japanese katana, not these poor replicas you can buy all around the world. Real katana is the most elastic and hard sword in the world, it is actually the only sword that is both elastic, so you can bend it pretty hard before it breaks and also very hard so it stays sharp for a long time. I guess you never saw how katana can split a .50 Cal?

It breaks, but after couple of .50 Cal bullets. Anything else would be shattered after the fist.

RE: Zombie Apocalypse Plans?
The Calmyourtitsbro Refuge is ok, but make sure you have an alternative location (and a secret escape exit). You never know when you need to switch places fast. Maybe something with interconnected roofs well out of zombie reach.


Another idea might be to blow the crap out of zombies to reduce their numbers. It's kind of evil, but hey, it's survival of the fittest.
1. Just take a pesky creationist (since they want to join Jesus anyway) and attach him to the middle of a sturdy metal cage, next to a huge bomb (basic farming equipment is enough to create some powerful stuff).
2. Drop that cage (from an armored truck) in the middle of a town square or shoppîng mall. Zombies will try to reach the poor bastard crying for help and surround the cage in great numbers. Wait till a few hundred surround him.
3. Anyone willing to press the detonator? Big Grin


I wonder if a katana works well against zombies. You'd need a really good slash to cut that head off and often their arms are in the way. Ok, it would be cool, but I personally think blunt weapons are far more effective. I'd make a good mace or flail: blunt trauma + tearing off flesh.


Suicide: whenever the unthinkable happens; you're stuck, out of ammo AND surrounded, then suicide is a better alternative to being chewed on alive. An elegant cyanide capsule might solve that. It worked for Hitler, it'll work for you Big Grin

Personal protection. Ok a medieval armor might look cool and protect from bites, but I don't think it's lightweight and flexible enough. Here are a few anti-zombie armor sets:
- Lightweight home made sports-crowd control outfits (from stuff available in most large stores)
- Damascus protective gear

[Image: 11594065.jpg]


Some other essentials:
- Chemical compounds and a pharmacist encyclopedia. You'll have to be able to make your own medicine in a disease-infested world.
- Solar panels and other durable energy sources that don't rely on oil or electricty.
- A water purification system and a basin to capture rainwater


Transportation:
- An armored battle tank is a great choice, just remember that it uses an enormous amount of fuel. For emergency use or heavy assaults only.
- A light, manoeuvrable truck is a better idea. Just make sure the windows are protected. Also make sure that you have mirrors or camera's, because zombies tend to hide outside, just waiting for you to pop your head out.
- a motorycle for run&gun assaults will also outrun most zombies, just make sure you don't get surrounded.


Porn:
- I don't know if the internet will keep working, so make sure you have tons of it. Chances are the beautiful chicks are long gone. And you won't get aroused by Olga, the russian weight lifting champion that just happens to be stuck in the same shelter as you.



I'll post some other ideas later Tongue

RE: Zombie Apocalypse Plans?
Oh yeah, I completely forgot about the self-protection suits. Easiest thing to get your hands on is a motorcycle suit and a helmet. They would break their teeth before even denting the helmet, suits have light-weight-hard-plastics enforcements and most of them are made out of hard leather. You can find these suits in every motor-shop and there is plenty of those in every town.

I see you all complain about not having enough fuel. I disagree, with all those thousands of abandoned cars I think a small bunch of survivals would have more than enough fuel for everything. And once you clear out a bit of zombies and gather more people (survivals) you can secure a gas station, open the tanks, and there we go, then you go from station to station. There would be tons of fuel in every town.

Also one other thing nobody ever mentions. How long could zombies survive? They could not walk around forever, so in a year or so, there would be no more zombies, they would:
a) "die" of hunger
b) rot away until they could not move anymore.

I am aware of the high durability of real katanas, but they are very expensive ( Usually costing between 200 and 2000 dollars) and kind of rare. I thought calmyourtitsbro was talking about the replica katanas. The real katanas can also become damaged and breakable if not maintained and stored well. During a zombie apocalypse, it will be hard to find the oil the wipe the rust off of it if you run out. Also, even a well maintained katana will break eventually once you cut down hundreds of the walking dead.

RE: Zombie Apocalypse Plans?
Oh? If you could find me a katana for 2000 $ I will pay you double right away. Smile 200 $, you can't get a decent replica for that amount of money. No, I do not think you can find a real one cheaper that 10000-20000$, or if you have money then you can get to 100k-200k $. In Japan you can't get one no mater how much money you got, if the director of the museum does not like you. You have tests and exams before purchasing, they consider it to be a national treasure and only the worthy are allowed to purchase one.

Replicas can be very durable, the ones produced in USA (not the cheapest ones) are usually made from cold steel and that is pretty strong and durable and they cost couple of hundreds of dollars.

Anyway, it is the best blade ever produced, but not so good for zombies if you are not a samurai, or at least trained in Japanese martial arts that use katana. Blunt weapons are much better for regular use, specially if you put nails in it, so you get the mace/flail effect.
