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.
In the Zombie Apocalypse, Guns are often times portrait as the best weapon to have in any situation. But in truth they have many shortcomings which lowers their overall effectiveness quite a bit.
Alternatively these videos could make your next shopping trip quite a bit easier. The Focus of this World building Subseries lies on Realism and a Grounded Setting.
You see a stranded hitchhiker along the side of the road, and you see small group of zombies closing in on him; what would you do? Your weapon is silent and helps you take out zombies without being noticed.
Without hesitation your quickness and accuracy helps you take out zombies when you are in a tough situation. It's a fast and easy shot that helps you keep control while taking out a group of zombies.
As zombies catch up with you, the AK-47 can take out heard in a rapid paste along with helping you save your group. It's the most reasonable choice to kill a zombie from a distance while making as little noise as possible.
You're not afraid to get your hands a little dirty or confront any zombies that stand in your way. It can carve a juicy turkey, or it can kill a zombie straight down the middle while having some distance.
It can save someone from a small range to a large distance while making an accurate shot. With all that is going on in the world today, from unprecedented weather events to turmoil in the Middle East, you may well think that things couldn’t get any worse (and I’m not talking about the presidential nominees).
The only thing that could make them any worse is a zombie apocalypse, and I’m getting the feeling that some people would actually welcome such an extreme scenario. Zombies do get a pretty bad press and their brain eating antics surely warrant this, but you have to feel a little sorry for the undead.
It’s not as if they can walk into a PR firm and mumble something about being misunderstood after they had laid waste to the security guards. There is no reasoning with these relentless ghouls so the best thing we can do is be prepared for the inevitable, as it is surely not a matter of if, but when they rise up and try to force us to join their number.
Think of a zombie apocalypse as like a camping trip, but instead of going forward and exploring the great unknown you are running away from the wholly undead. Some food, a few gallons of water and some good quality earplugs to drown out the unearthly moaning are a must.
A first aid kit is important for non- zombie related injuries, but if your friend has been infected then unfortunately, a 12 gauge is what they need. Morale will be important when holed up, so a deck of cards or a chess set can help pass the time.
A short wave radio is also worth packing, as is a hand wound charger for all your electrical devices. Pick your weapons wisely for a zombie apocalypse A pocketknife or two are invaluable for many eventualities and are absolutely essential.
When it comes to blade a hatchet, just like a machete, can double as both a practical woodcraft tool and pretty cool zombie slaying weapon. This is a great gun for shooting over your shoulder as you run away while being overrun (just like in the movies).
Good from distance and at close range, something like an AR-15 is your friend in any apocalypse, whether it is zombie related or otherwise. The two most popular styles seem to be getting up close and personal with a baseball bat or a fire ax or a sledgehammer and using that to kill the zombie.
Guns for entertainment, dogs and the environment for actual zombie murdering. If you actually have access to a firearm why not take it along with any melee weapon you can find.
I'd have my pump-action rifle slung across my back, a knife on my belt and a crowbar used as a walking stick. If you actually have access to a firearm why not take it along with any melee weapon you can find.
I'd have my pump-action rifle slung across my back, a knife on my belt and a crowbar used as a walking stick. Survivors tend to be dicks in zombie movies.
But let's just assume the worse, figure it's brown trousers time, and that the Apocalypse has come. I can find AND swing a crowbar in this house, easy.
And I can pull out the rifle, load it, fire with accuracy, and move onto the next target NOW. Preference is melee, i.e. the crowbar and hammer in my truck, but I have a Moss berg 500 and Colt 1911 sitting in my room, so I've both available.
I've got a good short sword I can use as well, but I need to get my hands on a Kurt. I am fit for a living, so carrying and swinging the weight wouldn't hinder me.
Not only are they deadly, but they can help me gain access to places. Even if I run out of ammo I can still squish the zombies under my mighty treads.
I'd go with a gun, not because I can use it, but because it would scare the real threat: other people. Zombies are slow and stupid but people, when desperate, are the most malicious evil bastards to ever walk the earth and far more deadly.
Oh, and since a zombie apocalypse is impossible, the gun will help during a real disaster, such as a major earthquake. If I can't flee I guess I'm fucked but all plans have a flaw.
Oh, and I plan on having a bow, for hunting, so I could use that for zombies, but as I don't have one now it's not a reasonable answer. Ignoring the fact that an actual zombie apocalypse is pretty much impossible unless it's a super virulent ultra hardcore airborne infection or some such, guns.
If their slow and their attracted to sounds, I'll be solid snake it and take a bunch of empty mags and throw them while cutting their head off. The two most popular styles seem to be getting up close and personal with a baseball bat or a fire ax or a sledgehammer and using that to kill the zombie.
Shotguns injure such a large area that you can easily destroy a zombie's leg to significantly slow it down, and you can do so while running and not aiming. Sure, it happens every once in a while, but pump action shotguns are incredibly reliable, and if you properly maintain them can fire thousands of shots without ever jamming.
The only real problem is that ammunition will probably be limited, but even then shotgun ammo is fairly common, since shotguns are suck common home defense weapons. Doesn't make any sounds when you kill which they won't attract every other zombie around, and doesn't need ammo.
Quiet, just effective enough for a close- to mid-range kill, ammo is light and plentiful, and both firearms use the same round. Semi-automatic shotgun loaded with alternating buckshot and slugs, for use against hostile human targets.
And if a target, human or zombie, is far enough away that I need that much power to reach it, it's too far away for me to want to draw its attention. In any case, the weapon's job is simply to open an avenue of escape.
You just waste ammo and energy, make noise, and risk injuries you won't have the equipment or knowledge to treat. I would have to go with melee mostly because I have never fired an actual gun before, and I don't exactly have a few of them lying around the house.
Melee weapons, on the other hand, anyone knows how to use, and I have at least half a dozen usable blunt objects just inside the same room that I'm typing this in and even more throughout the rest of the house. Even if I run out of ammo I can still squish the zombies under my mighty treads.
You think those giant steel behemoths run on happy thoughts? I'm pretty sure I'd carry both if I had access to both, and which one I would use would be entirely situational, but considering both my aim and my abilities at CQC are downright awful, I'm pretty sure I'd just die, considering the fact that I must definitely won't run because I hate running away, not to mention I'd be going insane of how bad everything would smell and how filthy it would be, in fact I'd probably die from some disease before I even see a zombie now that I think about it.
Also, I don't believe in the idea of one zombie hearing you from 7 miles away for firing one shot. Even if I run out of ammo I can still squish the zombies under my mighty treads.
