fusillade762: About that piece of glass Michonne jammed into the Gov's eye: seems like you could get all sorts of nasty infections from Zombie Head Aquarium Juice.


Yeah, but if we were going that route, we'd have to deal with the fact that pretty much every character on the show routinely gets a face-full of zombie bodily fluids. Never mind the minor cuts and abrasions one tends to suffer in the fighting off of zombies whilst running headlong through underbrush.

Maybe this has been addressed more cogently in the comics, but for all that it apparently spread like wildfire through the entire world's population the first time, the Zombie Infection now seems to be the most difficult bug to catch in all of human history. (For that matter, given that the humans we see are constantly stressed and starved and physically abused to within an inch of their lives, it's pretty remarkable that the entire cast didn't die of some normal kind of illness. So far, except for Andrea's offscreen inter-season illness, nobody has had so much as the sniffles.)

Still, I'm not bothered by it. I think this is the rare science-fiction-type show that doesn't benefit from constantly reminding yourself of how little farking sense the whole thing makes if you think about it for a few minutes.

Mike Chewbacca: tinfoil-hat maggie: Relatively Obscure: Mike Chewbacca: Yeah, the bodies have been dead for a year now, and many are "wounded" anyway, so I have no problem with how easily blades are going through skulls.

And entire human bodies, especially if you have a magical omgjapanesesword. 'Cause many nerds freakin' love those things.

tinfoil-hat maggie: WW Z always pissed me off because the writer discounted the traumatic brain injury caused by concussion from high explosive shelling in the battle of Yonkers.

That's the one thing? ;)

/I will say it was a fun read but...oh, well.

I'd probably grab a sword for the zombie apocalypse. Of course, my 10 years of baseball means I'm incredibly comfortable with a bat (and catcher's gear, now that I think about it).


A sword always seemed like overkill to me. You'd get tired pretty fast swinging one around for any length of time and I sure as hell wouldn't want to be standing next to you while you use it.

Claw hammer, crowbar, ice axe, etc all seem like better options to me.

that's because zombies are supernatural, and the only way the shows' zombie/undead/never animated discrepancies work is if the explanation behind it all is 'some things are not meant for humans to know', I guess.

Weapons for the zombie apocalypse:

(from longest to closest range)

1. Anything on the AK platform which shoots 7.62x39. - An sks would do fine as well. Something to clear a field with at rather significant ranges of between 200-300 yards. (longer than that you probably wont need it)
2. A .22 something. Could be used the way darryl uses his crossbow, just more capacity. Quiet. If the zombies are slow moving you could get headshots with a 22 easy and the quiet nature of it would not attract a horde.
3. 1911 handgun for the knock down effect
4. A very long very thin blade for stabbing thru faces. Michonne does well with her katana but a rapier type would probably be better.
5. Bowie knife

Think that'd keep you covered.

fusillade762: About that piece of glass Michonne jammed into the Gov's eye: seems like you could get all sorts of nasty infections from Zombie Head Aquarium Juice.


You could probably get all kinds of nasty infections from zombie blood splashing into your eyes, or through an open wound, or in your mouth, or when you smear guts all over your body, but apparently not.

So, if it isn't bites that turn people, and everyone already has the zombie virus, why did they cut off Hershel's leg instead of giving him antibiotics? He wasn't any LESS likely to get an infection with his leg sawed off with an unsterile blade. If bites are only dangerous because of the bacterial load giving you "something", then risking gangrene wouldn't help (and would require antibiotics anyways). It's not like the zombie pathogen was like venom, traveling up his leg, or is it? Because he's already infected anyways.

Formaldehyde? It's a toxic preservative, if ingested. but I'd imagine it's fixative properties kept the zombie gunk in one place.

I got the impression that the risk of infection/gangrene from amputation was less than the risk (read: certainty) of death from the zombie bite, presumably because no medium (air, filthy pants, wiped-off hatchet, etc...) could be worse than zombie mouth. And maybe zombies have some kind of super-bacteria that (what remains of) modern antibiotics can't fight. Of course, that doesn't touch on why getting zombie guts in open wounds (cuts, scrapes) isn't a bad as getting scratched.... maybe zombie guts are sterile?

I think I am set then. I got a .22 rifle with scope and a .22 pistol. A few katanas and knives. Even a small knife. Only thing lacking is a high power rifle / pistol. But when just thinking of zombies, like you said, .22 is fine. Its the people that I might want to hide from.

Do you actually own any guns?

1. If you want to make headshots at range, you don't choose an AK or the 7.62x39. An AR-15 would be better. Look and see how many match grade guns are made on the .223 platform vs 7.62x39.
2. OK, I agree with this.
3. Knock down effect is pretty much a myth. If it could knock down the person you shoot, it would knock you down when you shoot it, this is physics. That said choose whatever handgun you like. But I think you would find 9mm have higher capacity for the Zombie hordes.
4. I think an ice pick or claw hammer might be better, the hammer would be more versatile than a rapier anyway.
5. A bowie knife? I own a Bowie Knife, it would be the last knife I would carry in the Zombie Apocolypse. It weighs a couple pounds on it's own. I'd carry a leatherman multitool, and a medium size fixed blade knife.

Way too much thinking going into this. But I'll bite.

Agreed that antibiotics shouldn't fight off the zombie super-bacteria. If the mouth is more contagious than the gut etc, it's probably because at the CDC it's been shown that the epicenter of zombification occurs in the brain in the temporal lobe region, so by proximity to that, the mouth would be more lethal than anything below the neck.

Wait, did you seriously suggest that your arms would get tired swinging a sword around and that you should carry a crowbar around instead?

Have you ever actually tried to swing a crowbar? A one- handed swords typically weighs less than 4 pounds and is designed to swung around. A crowbar typically weighs 15-20 pounds and is unwieldy as hell. Someone with a modicum of skill could get in 3 shots with a sword before you were even finished recovering from your first strike with the crowbar

fusillade762: Claw hammer, crowbar, ice axe, etc all seem like better options to me.


Ice Axes are designed to go in and stay in. A weapon that is hard to remove from your opponents skull is not optimal. Hammer seems OK, but I'd prefer a hatchet or small axe

But I would take a well made sword over pretty much any modern non-powered, non firearm tool, at least for roomy areas - it's a device that was designed to destroy human bodies, and centuries of refinement led to some pretty successful designs. A nice axe is a good choice, too. Just do a quick search on YouTube - there are plenty of videos of people using swords and other hand weapons to cut up animal carcasses.

Lacking a sword, or for indoor work, I dunno - a nice heavy machete, or a kukri style machete, a tomahawk or good claw hammer like you mentioned all seem like good options

Yes, a sword is better as a combat weapon, but try popping a padlock off of a shed with it. Or opening a locked front door. Or any of the 27,000 other things you'll need to do to survive that don't involve killing zombies. By contrast the wrecking bar has the heft and reach to be effective as a close combat weapon, while being more utilitarian, not requiring sharpening, and far less likely to break if used improperly. You trade a small amount of reach (but still greater reach than say, a hammer or hatchet) for equivalent weight, greater utility, and less maintenance.

heh, fair enough. I guess my estimations were colored by the fact that I haven't used on since I was a kid - I should have googled it. So, fair enough, call it 4-8 pounds. Still 2-3 times heavier heavier and unwieldy than a sword

abrannan: Yes, a sword is better as a combat weapon


I'm glad you agree.

but try popping a padlock off of a shed with it. Or opening a locked front door

Why would I do that? That's what a prybar is for. Or a sledgehammer. Sure, if that's all you've got, they also make pretty good weapons, but just because a tool can be used as a weapon doesn't mean it should be used as a weapon, especially if an actual weapon is available to be used as a weapon. Versatility is good, and over-specialization leads to being overburdened, but during the zombie apocalypse there are certain specialized tasks that will come up so often that having specialized tools to deal with them is pretty important.

abrannan: By contrast the wrecking bar has the heft and reach to be effective as a close combat weapon, while being more utilitarian, not requiring sharpening, and far less likely to break if used improperly. You trade a small amount of reach (but still greater reach than say, a hammer or hatchet) for equivalent weight, greater utility, and less maintenance.


You sacrifice a little bit of reach, a lot of speed, and an enormous amount of recovery time. A three pound difference may not seem like much, but angular momentum is a biatch. There's good reason that several thousand years of recorded history has soldiers using swords instead of metal clubs, and armor is only a part of that reason.

As for "less likely to break" - that's true, but as you say, "when used improperly." I'll take my chances with 5160 spring steel and appropriate usage.

Father_Jack: 1. Anything on the AK platform which shoots 7.62x39


Good news!

www.imfdb.org

AKMS

Carol Peletier (Melissa McBride) is seen firing an AKMS-type rifle from a prison watchtower in "Seed" (S3E01). The rifle appears to be fitted with rails at the top as well as a tactical handguard. Like the M4 above, this rifle was not among their weapons in the previous season, thus was most likely found in between Seasons 2 and 3, as the group was on the move for several months scavenging. In "When the Dead Come Knocking" (S3E07), Oscar loads the AKMS along with several other weapons into a car trunk and later Daryl can be seen carrying it. Daryl is seen using the AKMS in "Made to Suffer" (S3E08).


I love the fark out of IMFDB and I don't even own a gun.


R.A.Danny: To be the nerdiest nerd, some of you may remember a thread a while back about a retired soldier that killed an armed invader in his home with a .22. Some people thought him a fool for using that particular weapon. In reality, you are gonna be using something for the same reason - It was what was available when TSHTF.


The guys from "Son of Guns" made a custom .22 zombie killing gun for Max Brooks on one episode.

ko_kyi: R.A.Danny: He's carrying more than most people can carry around all day anyway, why not a bag of grenades and a fleshlight?

Too easy to accidentally the whole thing.


What? He might decide he wants to masturbate and grabs the wrong tool?

manimal2878: Father_Jack: Weapons for the zombie apocalypse:

(from longest to closest range)

1. Anything on the AK platform which shoots 7.62x39. - An sks would do fine as well. Something to clear a field with at rather significant ranges of between 200-300 yards. (longer than that you probably wont need it)
2. A .22 something. Could be used the way darryl uses his crossbow, just more capacity. Quiet. If the zombies are slow moving you could get headshots with a 22 easy and the quiet nature of it would not attract a horde.
3. 1911 handgun for the knock down effect
4. A very long very thin blade for stabbing thru faces. Michonne does well with her katana but a rapier type would probably be better.
5. Bowie knife

Think that'd keep you covered.

Do you actually own any guns?

1. If you want to make headshots at range, you don't choose an AK or the 7.62x39. An AR-15 would be better. Look and see how many match grade guns are made on the .223 platform vs 7.62x39.
2. OK, I agree with this.
3. Knock down effect is pretty much a myth. If it could knock down the person you shoot, it would knock you down when you shoot it, this is physics. That said choose whatever handgun you like. But I think you would find 9mm have higher capacity for the Zombie hordes.
4. I think an ice pick or claw hammer might be better, the hammer would be more versatile than a rapier anyway.
5. A bowie knife? I own a Bowie Knife, it would be the last knife I would carry in the Zombie Apocolypse. It weighs a couple pounds on it's own. I'd carry a leatherman multitool, and a medium size fixed blade knife.


i have:

Soviet: Mosin nagant 91/30 and M44, SKS and SVT40
Czech VZ58
French Berthier 1915 and M26 carbine
Aussie Enfield SMLE
Swiss K31 (one walnut, one beech) and G11
German K98
Egyptian FN49
Mossberg .22 rifle from the 40s

....

Maybe a few others I cant remember my gun collection hasn't been touched in a few years since I left the US.

responding to your points:



Wasn't thinking about headshots and accuracy, was thinking more about durability. Hence ak or sks pref over AR. I know the reliability issues of the AR have been taken care of over the years but the AKs still got the rep as a more stable easy to maintain platform. Not owning an AR I cant say, was just thinking more about what I knew tbh.

Ice pick or clawhammer would be too splatty. If a rapier type sword was too long, a short sword would still be better than a pick imo. See Argentine "Model 1909 " short sword or Swiss 1914 Pioneer bayonet

Point taken with the bowie knife... I think I may have misspoken anyways. I was picturing a kbar or something along those lines.

Was having this convo with a friend yesterday and he opted for the p90, which'd be good too, but scavangeing for spare ammo would be a challenge.

Relatively Obscure: I wonder how long I could last just plinking off anyone I see toting a sword around during a zombie outbreak. Ignore the zombies and just ice dudes with swords.


Problem is, you do not know if they are using that sword for something else. Personally, I would always carry a few blade on me. One would be for defense against zombies if I run out of ammo and need an emergency weapon. The other would be for something like hunting. Can not have a zombie blood stain getting any where near my food.

But my main weapons of choice would be my rifle and pistol. Sword would also be used if I need to stealth kill a zombie or in to close an area where a rifle is no good and a pistol might not be used safely (splatter damage).

Good news!

AKMS

Carol Peletier (Melissa McBride) is seen firing an AKMS-type rifle from a prison watchtower in "Seed" (S3E01). The rifle appears to be fitted with rails at the top as well as a tactical handguard. Like the M4 above, this rifle was not among their weapons in the previous season, thus was most likely found in between Seasons 2 and 3, as the group was on the move for several months scavenging. In "When the Dead Come Knocking" (S3E07), Oscar loads the AKMS along with several other weapons into a car trunk and later Daryl can be seen carrying it. Daryl is seen using the AKMS in "Made to Suffer" (S3E08).

I love the fark out of IMFDB and I don't even own a gun.

The Ultimate Zombie Gun: Red Jacket ZK-22 Bullpup Rifle


Microsoft called. They said something about a patent infringement on something called the "Halo battle rifle design."

Not sure what they mean by that.

Guns are suboptimal in a zombie scenario. First dozen people to gear up with this stuff and learn a phalanx will rule the repopulated world.
