Guns vs. melee wepons

So far 5 people have told me that guns would be usless during the zombie apocalypse. Their argument said that melee wepons dont need reloading and dont make nosie. My argument says that using only melee wepons puts you at unnessasry risk (i.e. being to close to infected/being hit in eyes with zombie blood), and guns have a more powerfull and ranged attack. Personally I would use guns but always keep a baseball bat and kukri in my car trunk. Whats your stance on it?

    well the whole idea that you only go for headshots will get you killed, while those are generally what kill them they are difficult and zombies have the same anatomy humans do, protip if you have a shitload charging you take out their legs then doubletap

    I think it'd feel pretty badass to swing a machete around. Never done it, just a thought.

    Nice try Texbex but you can't beat the tophat (:

    It is badass to swing a machete. Its even funner when your chopping down bamboo.

    I'm saying fedoras beat tophats, because Indiana motherfucking Jones wears a fedora.
    - Ertrov August 16, 2011, 2:00 pm
    Tophat wins.
    - DarkHunter August 16, 2011, 2:00 pm
    Nope. You can't beat Indiana Jones. Resistance is futile.

    simple, a fishing rod with a brain in a jar dangling on the end, held just above their reach. that should keep them entertained until they run out of energy and rot away

    Just move to Texas. With all the gunshops here you could hole up in one for a week probably and then just fight your way down the street to the next one.

    I wonder how much better the world could be if all the time thinking and preparing for zombies was used to help a charity?

    i would be to rely more heavily on the melee weapons using bullets sparingly. if i know i can get it without the bullets then i will. my personal preference would be a katana which is the strongest sword and very unlikely to break though i would preferably have a second long range weapon to use such as a heavy naginata used only for open areas not indoor. weapon of choice for gun would be the m4 carbine with a scope for distance.

    katanas are strong but they'll be dull be the 4th zombie head u slice through.
    - GothicRoze August 16, 2011, 9:31 am
    depends on how well the katana was made. the blade has to be folded well enough to work but i can see your argument. if i could then i would replace the katana with a different sword but i don't think i could get the one i wanted in time so i'd just raid a shop near here lol
    - 24paperwings August 16, 2011, 10:07 am
    but most shops have crappy swords
    - GothicRoze August 16, 2011, 1:40 pm
    I have a 6 foot claymore in the garage. Will that work?
    - FireRoastedFire February 18, 2012, 10:17 pm
    just a tip, the colt m4 jams a lot... especially if the magazine gets dented, wet, spring loses tension, etc. grab something from a more *rugged* country such as russia or germany. not the Kalashnikov per se. personally i'd pick a SIG seeing as how thats what i've got in my garage and its gas piston not direct impingement. also it feeds like a boss. only started having misfeeds after round 5000 ish. replaced the receiver pins and i'm havin no problems
    - MIKYTEY February 19, 2012, 1:26 am
    unless you're used to swinging a claymore for hours with no rest and its a good quality sword then no
    - GothicRoze February 19, 2012, 6:06 pm
    I've taken Medieval Weapons Fighting courses and Have participated in SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism a.k.a Armor and wooden weapons)and WoTS (Way of The Sword). It's a $400 dollar blade from what I was told from my previous Step Father, a.k.a previous owner.
    - FireRoastedFire February 20, 2012, 12:20 am
    The Scottish Great-Sword, not the gun.
    - FireRoastedFire February 20, 2012, 12:21 am
    i have a $500 truck, it lasted from 285k to 411k miles with the waterpump being the only thing gone. I also have a $13,000 truck, it's been in the shop 4 times and i've replaced parts about 10-15. cost means nothing with a sword either
    - MIKYTEY February 20, 2012, 12:38 am
    can your sword cut through a watermelon without a problem, going by price doesnt really tell you how good the sword really is
    - GothicRoze February 20, 2012, 10:29 am
    you sound set for a Apocalypse
    - GothicRoze February 20, 2012, 10:30 am
    Confirmed yes. You owe me a watermelon.
    - FireRoastedFire February 27, 2012, 12:56 am
    If I'm ever in your area I will buy you one.

    good post! but i think this might go under chat or ask other than pics, even tho it has 2. and im pretty sure the chainsaw needs reloaded with gas.

    i would probably use a crossbow for it makes no noise and i would also keep a machete as a secondary it is strong and reliable

    as far as I'm concerned unless there is a reason not to use a gun such as the area is infested and you don't want to wake the neighbors or the zombie is already in your face. mostly because unless you know how to make casings and gunpowder and have a large supply of the required ingredients most ammunition you find is going to be pretty iffy after a few months.

    Zombie Apoc situation assuming they're survival guide zombies would consist of mostly guns and then melee for close quarters but not Rambo kill everything those are for guns.

  • 1

    He is correct on the zombie blood in eyes thing, close range equals a higher chance of infection, so i would have a face mask and goggles if going melee, also fireaxe rules.

    hole up behind a wall with a couple of MG42s. That'll deal with any intruders

    I would rely mainly on melee weapons, but if I had to use a gun it would be a silenced semi automatic rifle. This would avoid alerting a large amount of zombies to your position and conserve as much ammo as possible.

    i would use two daggers and go for the eyes or the spinal cord.

  • 1

    long story short if you are in amazing shape then you can use melee that is the biggest thing over looked

    i would just rip around on my baby (below) with a shotgun, an axe and backpack full of food and ammo. i would also fortify my house and make it my home base.
