yeah but you
-are not rich
-are not a navy seal
-are not a survivalist
which means you are going to have a hard time
-fighting asshole bandits/gangs
-running away from zombies
-surviving in nature
so pretty much you would have to be a bandit
you could rape/torture/murder that hot loli/older girl from down the street or in your hood you always wanted

Shambler 14/04/16(Wed)13:53 No. 5062 ID: 27464e

At first, I would not be a bandit because my community can survive on his own food stocks.

Then, we will all the dead kind of bandits.

Shambler 14/04/24(Thu)13:46 No. 5079 ID: f5b646

Honestly, I'd be more a scavenger than bandit. Not the type to kill for what I want, just to protect myself. Honor code, morals, all that jazz. More than likely I'd just join a group of people and hope they're not all convicts and decide to rape me when I go to sleep.

Growing up on an Iowan farm, I know how to both hunt and grow plants (this will come into play later).
A buddy and I were dicking around on the computers at school during our yearbook class, since we filled our quota of pages that day, and found this island in canada. Since we were talking about zombies, we bot knew that this was a perfect place to go to in case of zombie outbreak. We figured since the lake(?) is about 2 miles wide at it's least wide part, we'd be relatively safe. We decided on it for sure since it was a nature preserve, so it has plenty of meat producing animals on it, and it's in canada which has a rather low population density. We could either harvest the raw materials of the forests to build shelter, or drive 8 hours to the nearest city and scavenge for supplies there. When the time comes, we both go to save a select few of people that we trust with our lives, who are very few in number, but also provide necessary skills such as cooking, scouting, building and fighting/hunting. What do you guys think?

Plants natural grow here, but it don't seem good for an intensive plantation.

Husbandry should work, some sort of extensive agriculture if we find the good plants but in this case, we have to remove trees and that's a lot of work.

The happening will not be the same in every place of the world. People will react differently, have different culture etc. I tried to make a list of the country that will have the best chance to survive a zombie invasion.

This is the first time I try to make this list so there is a lot of things to fix in it. If you see some mistakes or things I forgot to mention, please add them.

1) Best Korea
+ the country is literally designed to resist a zombie apocalypse.
+ guns and heavy arty everywhere
+ bitten people will be shot without hesitation
+ they don't trade with others nation
+ lot of mountain and forest
+ Great Leader

2) Switzerland
+ the country is literally designed to resist a zombie apocalypse.
+ all citizen have a long rifle and know how to use it

During WWII, putting the royal family on a boat is a bad idea. If the London population try to eat royal brains, with the few survivors knowing there is a lot of food in the palace, it is a good idea.

They will probably stay, I think that with power come some sort of honor and they may prefer to die than to left the place. If they leave, the situation would be far more explicit for the survivors in the commonwealth. If I had to write a fiction, I would make them leave. In "reality" they will probably stay.

What is sure is, if they manage to survive, and they have good chances, they will be in a good position to unite people after the happening.

If we remove the bridge, Venice can be acceded only by sea. They built the city on the sea so it need a naval battle to access the city. With some modern weapons and few good ships, trained troops can protect the city from literally anything except a modern army.

Pity not to see Siberia on the list:
+No population = no zombies.
+No need for bunkers, nobody is coming for you 500 miles over tough terrain to steal three turnips.
+You can grow everything by yourself
-It's hard, and it's cold, but that's life, deal with it.
+-You might end up living alone, but isn't that what you WANT from a zombie apocalypse?

Shambler 14/04/23(Wed)22:44 No. 5077 ID: 824518

Already mentioned in Russia.
Siberia is in the best part to resist zombies, but take care another Horde isn't going to fuck you again.
There was more people living in Siberia than in Kazakhstan before Genghis Khan. Being alone and far from everything have its drawbacks.

I need help with my plan. I would stock up on food and all those goodies, get my water from the English rain, ect. I would use cinder blocks and cement to block the stairs but my problem is electricity. I think the best plan is solar panels, wind turbines and a stationary bicycle connected to a motor, but how do I get electricity to come out of a battery (the big ones, not AAs or any of that) and into mains plug that would go in my xbox.

Shambler 14/04/21(Mon)02:39 No. 5075 ID: c0365a

I thought about solar panels too. But here are some reasons I have held off:
1) prices used to be 30K, but have been dropping significantly in the last two 5 years.
2) as a domestic option, I hope new tech might be more efficient in the future.
3) climate (change) is more erratic lately, and I'm not sure whether the hours of sunlight is going be affected in the next 5 years in my area.
4) wear and tear from the elements might need maintenance in 10 years, and that cost will have to be factored in.

But Solar Power is definitely an option I will be considering.

Shambler 14/04/22(Tue)04:19 No. 5076 ID: 2a0176

Electrical power is way down on my list of priorities.

It seems to me that the Zombie-Apocalypse requires shelter first and foremost; a secure stronghold. It would need to be far removed from urban/suburban centers; that's where all the zombies are, and the concentration of fellow survivor who will want to kill you and take all your gear.

Second; a secure source of potable water, preferably a deep well or a natural spring.

Third; food. Freeze-dried, canned, packaged MREs, whatever.

Electricity would be nice and all, but it is certainly not essential to survival. In the long term, I would hope to band together with fellow survivors and try to establish a small electric grid; in my part of the country it would almost certainly be a modest hydroelectric project; shouldn't be too hard. But that is something I will worry about down the road, when I have the time.

Compound bow or crossbow? Which weighs more? Which is louder? Which is more accurate?

Shambler 14/04/16(Wed)12:09 No. 5056 ID: 27464e

You need years of training to be accurate or to use a powerful bow. If it is your first year, you will have to use a soft bow and you will not hit anything past 100m exept by chance.
On the other hand, if you train all day erryday since you are 6, you can use the english medieval longbow and kill a horse at 400m.

You can use a crossbow after one day of practice and with a decent reloading system it can be more powerful than a longbow.

Of course, you have to remember:

If it is just a mater of ammo, powder is easy to make for a decent chemist using potassium nitrate, sulfur and charcoal or with fertilizer and some other things.

There is guns designed to be loaded with literally anything like pic related and it is easy as fuck to make bad shootgun ammo with the case, that can be fond in huge quantity anywhere, bad powder and small balls of metal.

To OP: don't forget slingshots. They don't need maintenance, will last years, are cheap as dirt, light, quiet, can shoot anything and at close range they kill a zombie with one shoot in the head.
If they don't run, it is the best weapon just after the lightsaber. And you don't have a lightsaber.

Shambler 14/04/20(Sun)19:17 No. 5073 ID: 57c089

You guys realise that gunshots will attract every zombie in the country and ammo will run out eventually. An arrow can be made of a carved stick.

They'd probably know how to repair their swords.

Shambler 14/01/07(Tue)02:36 No. 4979 ID: 8cb8ad


If the Crusader had access to his smith then he would also have his sutlers and other camp followers and the baggage-train that supplied his needs and luxuries. That would mean that the Marines would also have their logistical support system, and therefore every jarhead will have his ammo-resupply. Advantage, USMC.

On the other hand, while swords get all the press, attention, and adulation, even at this early date it had already been pushed into a subsidiary role; the Crusader knight and man-at-arms first primary weapon would be a lance/heavy spear, followed (given the heavily armored nature of his Saracen enemy) by mace or battle-ax, both of which would provide very good service indeed against zombies. Also, don't forget the archer/crossbowman corps to provide fire support and flank security.

Shambler 14/04/16(Wed)13:57 No. 5063 ID: 27464e

50 random civilians with a six month training and a lot of state of the art tech gadget will do a great job. Until they run out of ammo.

50 warriors trained to melee fight since they are 6 year old will do a great job.

So, /zom/, do you guys have any plans on rebuilding civilization after the zompocalypse?

I always fantasize about having a little community with it's own little militia and having farmers feed our population by farming on the outskirts of town.

And what would be the best way to clear out a, let's say, 25,000 population town of zombies to make it safe? Fortifying it? Protecting from siege and raiders?

Also, kind of straying away from zombies here but, do you think we would ever get back to the point of space travel? I would like to think zombies would just bring upon a second dark age, and we would eventually get back on track with technological development.

>>The best bet is to just fit in a group and slowly take it over from the inside. Why do the hard work when you can take it from somebody else

I doubt you could take over anything that wasn't from McDonalds.

Jokes aside, how exactly would you "take over a group from the inside". I'd love to hear how someone with no talent whos main experience in real life comes down to "sits in front of a computer yelling at mom to bring me cheezy snacks" would go from the position of an outsider, to the head of whatever group they attempted to become a part of.

Thank you for the laugh haven't heard graboids in awhile. Ah the memories.

As for the zombie apocalypse I would call/text all friends and family on day one while phones still work. Tell them where I'm going and what to bring with them. I would go to a local food or furniture warehouses or BJ's "other options acceptable" set up a group to come back to there, then go to the nearest corp dept store that sells guns, knives, bows, ammo, and survival gear. Sorry to take it from the walking dead but newcomers get the three questions. Use friends and family to dominate group and run things. Run a semi democratic community, have council but have it rigged.Build, and scavenge outward from base, collect and burn the redead. I'm a fit guy so I'd run raid parties.

Shambler 14/04/16(Wed)13:46 No. 5061 ID: 27464e

I think there is only 2 possibility for the social organization:

We can have a charismatic and strong leader succeeding at unifying the people and a more-or-less dictatorship will be established.
Given the situation, he will have no other choice than establish a maoist-like policy and use force against all opponents.
While this assure us than we can farm safely from both zombies and looters, it will also result in atrocious living conditions. We will have to hide the food we make and we will be tortured by the police to give it. We basically have the choice of a hard working life, keeping a low profile all the time, and being killed. All rebellions will be solved in a bath of blood and there is a small chance for stalinist purges or Kmer rouge slaughtering.
After decades of this bullshit, situation should be stabilized and we could hope for a better future.

The second possibility is a total decay of civilization and a come back to dark ages. If there is no more guns, small groups of well armed and trained friends will loot farms, do whatever they want where they are and will finish to realize that they can just say they are the lords of a given place. Massive local conflicts and pillages will follow and we will slowly see a medieval hierarchy appear.
After century of farmers being slaughtered by wars, there is a chance that the productivity will be high enough so the strong people will rely on modern institutions rather than pure force to impose themselves in positions of power. Then, society can start again.

In any case, we are fucked.

is 1.1 million points good?

it looks like something just for fun, the important question is whether or not the shotgun is real since that's probably more likely to be used in a real firefight than a long range rifle in urban home invasion if that's what you're talking about


I don't own any guns, but tell me what I've got and what I've missed - also what ammunition they use ;D

back row, right hand side going left

M2, lee enfield No4 MK1? (the only one I know specifically exists), ???? then about center it's a mauser kar? then a really weird one, then an older lee enfield, another mauser kar of some sort

looks like some sort of russian direct knockoff of an MP44 in the back second from left

a lot on nogun friends.

This is a failed strategy, and you can't survive with "lota guns".

Why? Because the army already tried. You really think that 10 undisciplined manchild can success where the fucking army failed?

You shoot one time and all zombies at 5km walk toward you.

You are 10 in a house, there is no more electricity and water and you just have 3L of water left.

If you plan to get thought zombies by force, you are fucked. What you need is several years of food, a water source and purification filters/pills a well-hidden place and some luck.

Yes, whatever you are doing, you need luck to survive.

All it take to have the zombie agent is a mutation or a combination or a horizontal transmission with another virus.

It activate the nervous system against the will of the victim, one bite contaminate you, except for some extremely lucky bastards it is fatal...
