Crowbars are light to swing and fit in belt loops easily if you need both hands free for a moment. If you come to a door or some sort of barrier that you need propped open, you can use a crowbar for its literal purpose and get back to using it as a weapon afterward.
You’ll also never run out of gas like you would with a car and can easily carry your transportation around, unlike with a bicycle. Any bladed weapon could help pick through a wooded area, but a machete is designed to chop through trees.
Both ends provide different uses for killing zombies, whether you need to bludgeon or slice straight into their heads.

On top of that, you’re setting zombies aflame as they march toward you, meaning you’re forcing more danger on yourself. Sure, it seems like a good way to mow through a crowd, but one wrong step and the blade is being pushed onto you instead.

Aiming, knowing how to clean and care for it, the actual mechanics of using the gun and more would all make it a useless tool for a vast majority of people.
With everything from a real machete and packaged Twinkies included in this kit, you’ll have everything you need to travel light while eliminating the local zombie threat. This seemingly unassuming walking aid boasts a durable all black heat treated frame that conceals a razor sharp blade that is big enough to scare off virtually anyone.
This unique weapon features an ultra-stiff, split limb design for exceptional power and durability, in addition to an adjustable vertical grip that allows for better accuracy. This handmade sword is forged from spring steel, hardened for added durability, and sharpened to a razor sharp edge.
If the razor sharp axe head doesn’t get them the first time around, the spiked brass knuckles built into the handle will surely finish the job. Give yourself a fighting chance in an emergency situation by making sure the all-purpose survival tool is at your side.
It comes with a shock absorbing grip and features a multitude of tools such as a curved axe, spanner, hammer, tire chain hook, and many more. Forged from steel and outfitted with a non-slip rubber grip, the hammer’s distinct form allows it to be used for a wide range of jobs.
With these tactical firearm axe heads you can quickly transition from ranged attacks to direct zombie decapitating action. Crafted from heat treated hardened steel, this ultra functional tool combines a full tang crowbar with a 6 blade tomahawk, a nail puller, and a hammer head.
Though much debate could be done about the fine-grained specifics regarding individual models, there is no weapon more suitable to a wide variety of situations than an autoloading magazine-fed rifle. Able to be loaded and readied quickly, and capable of providing sustained, accurate fire from arm's length out to standoff ranges at a rate as rapidly as the shooter can comfortably acquire targets, this sort of weapon would prove useful in nearly all survival situations, ranging from hunting and taking small and large game to defending oneself against other humans, and everything in between.
With operating characteristics similar to its larger cousins, a sidearm provides the shooter with an immediately accessible secondary offensive option or reliable defensive choice that maintains a safe distance from the target in the event that their primary firearm runs dry on ammunition, malfunctions, or otherwise fails. Such a weapon can be easily drawn and quickly reloaded, and ensures that barring some extraordinary circumstance, the shooter will always be armed.
Some manner of crossbow would likely be as valuable as any firearm, and would provide a survivor with a means of eliminating single targets with a degree of subtlety not afforded by other ranged weaponry. Aimed in a manner similar to a rifle, crossbows would prove much easier for most individuals to accustom themselves to, especially those who already possess experience in handling long guns.
It can easily be seen that a decent melee implement could be a valuable last-ditch defensive tool in the event that all other means are out of reach, or if all ammunition has been expended, or in the case that a single target must be eliminated relatively quietly. While not the most immediately deadly weapon on the face of things, a heavy, reinforced machete or similar one-handed, bladed melee weapon has the capability of not only killing provided the user can deliver a sharp blow to the head, but can easily disable humanoid attackers, which generally requires less thoroughness and energy.
Baseball bats or other sports equipment of similar construction could represent an easily-accessible and inconspicuous means of defense and attack. Even heavy wooden implements can develop cracks after only a relatively few solid impacts and break, while their aluminum counterparts can be just as vulnerable to damage, bending and deforming in short order.
Crowbars offer great utility to a survivor, enabling their user to force doors or destroy their facings, pry open containers, easily shatter most glass, and effect other means of surreptitious entry, but they also represent a decent last-ditch melee option. You never know when a zombie apocalypse will begin, so it’s time to prepare for the bubble to burst.
There is no one-size-fits-all zombieapocalypseweapon, so let's have a little fun with this list and help find a solution that will work for you! The stress of close-quarters combat necessitates a shotgun to allow for the enormous margin of error required actually to hit your target.
For the first week of the apocalypse, a crossbow may seem a strange choice for defending against trouble. The crossbow is an accurate weapon and is the perfect option when silent kills are required.
They are far easier to master than the traditional bow and are a sustainable option for the zombie apocalypse. If you have watched The Walking Dead, then you have seen Daryl use his crossbow to kill a lot of Zombies.
Overall, crossbows are great weapons if you are firing from a position at your advantage (such as rooftops or windows). When used with the correct amount of force, an axe can break down most body parts and barricades.
However, a misplaced blow can leave defenseless as you cannot easily stop or change your swing. Wooden bats are the most traditional but are the easiest to break in just a short period of time.
However, you may start seeing dents after continuous use, and they also give off uncomfortable vibrations after every hit. However, it requires a significant amount of upper body strength, especially if you choose to carry the lighter type.
Its curved blade was specifically made to make clean cuts through its target. It doesn’t give you the same amount of distance as the shotgun or crossbow, but the right strike will definitely let you cut through a zombie with no issues.
If you are unsure of your skill in wielding this weapon, you can handle it like a knife and attack the zombie in a stabbing motion aiming at the bottom of its jaw and upward to the base of its skull. Having a handgun that is easily accessible to you is as important as having a long gun (such as a shotgun) to give you the benefit of distance.
A semi-automatic handgun, for example, gives you a readily accessible secondary option for offense while still providing you with a safe distance from your target. A second option is beneficial in case your primary weapon malfunctions or runs out of ammunition.
You can easily and quickly draw and reload a handgun in emergency scenarios. It is used to cut wood, thick vegetation, rainforest undergrowth, and meat.
Depending on your strength and the blade’s sharpness, it can take you one or several swings to cut through a zombie’s skull. Using both hands to hold the machete and place your strike will provide additional force and control.
Apply a twisting force to cause rotation and aim at the neck or spine to decapitate zombies. Continuous sharpening may be needed to maintain the machete’s usability for weeks and months.
The advantage a long range weapon gives you are that it allows you to maintain a good distance from zombies. Maintain a strong and sturdy core base, then swing the weapon all the way back and smash it on the head or neck of a zombie.
The best thing about sledgehammers is that you wouldn’t need to worry about dulling them out nor sharpening them frequently. Once you make a quick and hard swing on zombies that come your way, the hatchet’s sharp blades will finish them off.
If your hatchet gets stuck on the skull, make a strong front kick, and immediately go back to your defense position in case a second swing is required or another target is starting to come your way. Remember to consistently sharpen your hatchet’s blade to keep it in good shape.
A cleaving saw is designed for cutting big trenches in wood. It has a single blade about one inch thick and a sealed guard that makes sure no zombie blood or skin gets inside the machinery.
Aside from that, only a minimal portion of the saw is exposed and the serration of the blade is opposite of you. In the end, knowledge and preparedness will give you peace of mind knowing you can protect yourself whatever happens.
Even so the Katina requires you to chop 15 times to dice the brain into bits. Fact is with weapons like a Katina and bows, you still need training which most people don't have.
Even with an assault rifle or pistol, you still need a certain amount of training to use it accurately. For a shotgun, the just have to point it in the targets direction and pull the trigger.
No ammo, You can create a makeshift one with a grinding wheel and a plank of metal, it's fast, light, has a longer than arms reach, and can cut through a neck or skull (especially when decomposed). Someone wrote that you need to completely dice the brain into bits, which is foolish.
Except for a Brush Axe, aka, ditch bank blade. Bananas are generally the best, but require training, if you grab one and try to use it on a zombie group without training you a “mall ninja”, most mall ninjas end up zombie foodShotguns have stopping power, sure, but are noisy.
Chainsaws may make you look badass, but require fuel, are quite heavy and very noisy. Guns can run out of ammo, can be slow, low ranged, or not do the job when you would expect it to.
The Katina on the other hand, while it is short ranged, is powerful, everlasting, quick, and not to mention just plain awesome! It's useful for killing zombies very quickly, but it makes a lot of noise.
Bow and Arrow It's easier to use in my opinion than any type of gun. The bow and arrow can both be deadly weapon if combined and used properly.
With a bow you can kill zombies and other survivors without giving away your hiding place and the ammo is reusable. Durable, easy to wield, it'll break skulls and never run out of ammo.
It's a classic apocalyptic weapon used for more than killing zombies, in ways ranging from hacking down doors to amputation. The force and weight supplied by an axe swung onto a human head is enough to either mash it or split in right down the middle.
They're fast, they work, they're cheaper, easier to carry, and a basic knockout weapon. Guns make a lot of noise, require ammunition, practice, maintenance, and can overheat.
With a simple item such as a baseball bat, it requires no practice; just whack the zombie over the head. Get one made of a strong light metal as wood will wear and crack, and may give you splinters.
This is easily the most practical weapon in a zombie Apocalypse. Guns require ammo, make a lot of noise, and you need training to use them so not the best option.
Plus where will you find weapons like guns and swords as most people don't own them. Baseball bats on the other hand are easy to access so if zombies suddenly appear you shouldn't find it that hard to get one.
Knives are left in stabbing victims for a reason, they are hard to pull out again, and may not be all that effective without training Machete A long blade, lighter in weight, easy to carry, more common.
