5) Grip is poor..can't remember the name but there is another game of the same design with a much better grip and, I believe, a larger ammo capacity

That would be a Springfield XD, I believe. That or a Smith & Wesson M&P.

I agree with pang on this one. I think there should be a level of realism in picking weapons. You should have a primary, a secondary and a melee, although a Humvee wouldn't be bad either.

I believe it is that one

You should have a primary, a secondary and a melee,

The 2 necessities for weapons are at least one gun/long range weapon (if you have good enough aim for a bow..which is rare and extremely difficult..or think you could handle carrying and reloading a crossbow) and a melee

For gun - easier reload, easier aim, higher capacity, but makes noise

Long range (your best bet is to stick with either bow or crossbow) - silent, but reloading takes time for bother..and for bow you need really good aim. Really good aim

Melee - The 2 best bets are either  katana or crowbar
   Katana - Light weight, durable, cuts extremely well, and is a reasonable size
   Crowbar - Durable, size is good for enclosed spacing especially, and is extremely practical outside of combat

well, I would use a primary that would be practical for a person with little training could use.  Probably a French foreign legion model Famas F-1.  The gun is bullpup framed and easy to load and fire.  Ammo is flexible with it as it can take a variety of rounds.  a 93r as a secondary and to melee, i would use a lightweight machete.

Like I said before..machetes are only good against one or 2 zombies. Any more and you are begging for trouble

I would use a mosin nagant with scope and custom camo decals.A colt M1911 because it is reliable powerful and new ones can be fitted with silencer
I would not use a machete axe  or baseball bat because you need room to swing for melee instead I would use a bowie knife you know the Arkansas toothpick or a K-bar because they can chop,cut,and stab

Killersup is pretty good with a 50 pound bow. About 40 shots before he starts getting tired. If it takes more than 40 shots than Killersup is in deeper **** than he thought that he was.

A small hunting pack. Tons of small pockets, with a overall small easy to carry bag.

Killersup was always more of a baseball man. A nice clean solid swing with 32 inch bat will shatter any zombie skull. Plus, Killersup's baseball coaches scream for endurance, so they have drills where the player will see how many solid swings they can have in a minute. The record is close to 30 swings. Easy enough to take up to 4 zombies.

Always a pretty good marksmen with a .357 kept in the house. The ability to hit a 4 inch radius on a paper plate at 50 yards.Decent enough for a pistol.

Main weapon? Mother's specially made 223. semi. A groundhog gun that can reach out 500 yards, with extremely little recoil and little noise. It can hold 15ish shots.

Spots for ammunition? Two places. Killersup lives 15 minutes away from a gun shop by bike. 7 minutes away with a car going slow. If that is some-how gone, then Killersup has a dealer. :P a ammunition dealer. That man is a super-gun fanatic. He has everything, and Killersup is his favorite ^-^.

Spot to leave for once Killersup escapes? Hawaii. The pressure from the ocean would kill any zombies that tried getting their once Killersup was there. There is little to no highly populated areas of people so Killersup will be able to take out places one by one. The trees sprout plenty of fruit naturally. Sunny year 'round. Purrrfect.

What, Killersup is not mad?! He is not obsessed!? Now let him be in his corner of happy...

my mind because my fantasy is my best ability.

no, seriously, a good mind is the best weapon you can have. that and creativity. not to forget some basic survival tactics...

if i had to use a weapon then it ould be stealth. sneaky like a ninja, avoiding the zombies at all costs (even if that would mean that i had to live in the desert or in the arctis, zombies can not handle such hard weather).
