Machete for close combat, Silenced pistol for medium range, Crossbow because it's ****ing awesome and doesn't attract more zombies. Assault rifle for backup

A modern variant of a Kalashnikov. Powerful, durable, low maintanance, good range. Most modern rifles need regular stripping and cleaning, which is really impractical.
I'd quite like a Smith and Wesson revolver for all my zombie Western fantasies.
And a katana. Lightweight. Silent. Sharp. Strong. Deadly.

I would have a crossbow: silent and accurate.
Ak 47: all round, versatile machine gun.
Katana: for crowds of zombies.
And a silenced five-seven.
Maybe a shotgun, but i would soon run out of ammo.

a hatchet, its wieldy small, light and can double as a pretty useful tool
And I'll give props to the AK-47, though loud, its reliable and powerful

I would have an AK47, because who doesn't love them?
And a desert eagle, because they're ballin'
Either way, i wouldn't survive very long, zombies don't drop ammo in real life :-(

Crossbow. Just retrieve the ammo from the zombie's body.

Requires the same amount of accuracy as a rifle...but takes up a lot of energy when reloading (as well as time)

3) That is goin to make quite a lot of noise..which could easily alert zombies in the vicinity with much ease

4) Going to need A LOT of accuracy. Even well trained marksmen would be hard-pressed at hitting the head of a zombie while it is in motion

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

6) Going to need A LOT of accuracy while at the same time having good throwing strength

7) Why have 2 pistols? Also..loud. No need for the strength since you aren't facing people with body suits on

8) Again..why have multiple pistols? 2 is arguable..but multiple i just asking for trouble..why?

Because of the main thing..you have a lot of weight on you. You need to think of supplies as well,,with all these weapons, you'll be slowed down heavily

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.

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...
