It's pretty self explanatory if you take the time to read it. Pick your two favorite weapons from this list of adapted icons. These choices may later be supplemented with more gear, but who knows....

TL;DR
Pick 2 weapons, tell why.

Its gotta be the MegaBuster (although tempted by the assault rifle) and the Servbots.

Servbots as they can scavenge for food/supplies for me.

MegaBuster due to ease of usage and having a robotic hand will help in those picky situations.

Monkey Staff + ServBots

I only really need the staff for this plan to work.

"This 3 foot metal staff can extend and retract itself to any length in either direction."

Ok... so I'll extend the staff into a 100m wide 10m high cylinder, get my ServBots to build me a base on top of it and happily live there. Hordes of zombies? Raise the height so they can't climb on top of it. Need to explore? Increase the diameter, ServBots can help patrol the circumference. Got pesky raiders who really won't leave you alone? Rapidly expand and contract the circumference and bludgeon them to death with a solid wall of steal. Don't like ServBots? Pick a ranged weapon and simply sit on top of your tower of doom raining down death with your ranged weapon of choice on any nearby targets.

Personally I can't see any of these being strictly practical against Undead Hordes, and could in fact even harm the user in the wrong circumstances.

I would most likely go with The Tentacle for reusable, reliable range damage and environmental manipulation, and the Hatorri Hanzo Katana, if only as a performance buff.

But hey, that's just me.

I've had some disagreements with my bro, whether a plague, that would cause people to die, and reanimate after, is even possible. I imagine it being a bacteria, that devours brain cells, that makes a person a homo sapiens, and leaves only basic animal instinct to eat. Furthermore, the spread of sickness is in question, could it really take over whole world, or even continent, in matter of weeks or so?
I'm not saying anyones wrong, I just want opinions.

>whether a plague, that would cause people to die, and reanimate after, is even possible.
No. However, viruses like rabies infect the brain in such a so a victims 'personality' is gone but the body is still alive.
>I imagine it being a bacteria, that devours brain cells, that makes a person a homo sapiens, and leaves only basic animal instinct to eat.
Basically, rabies...
>Furthermore, the spread of sickness is in question, could it really take over whole world, or even continent, in matter of weeks or so?
A continent in weeks, absolutely. Unless we already have a vaccine, and enough of it. The world in weeks, probably not, it would have to be extremely contagious with a fairly low mortality rate.
>>5028
>What if some weird ass once in a million years global happening, like solar flare radiation or whatever, would activate otherwise not active germ, that has only developed in all living things over past few decades?
If there was, say, a man-made virus, with basically no symptoms, it could be spread very quickly, since no one knows they're infected. If then some 'switch' was flipped, and the infected all suddenly turned 'zombie', there would be streets full of zombies almost instantly. Of course, this would pretty much have to be a man-made, programmable, nano-virus, and that kind of tech is still pretty far off.
>>5029
> Main difference would be that although they might not feel pain, blood loss, trauma to the heart or lungs and other wounds would still result in death and the "zombies" would need to eat, drink and breath in order to keep going.
True. The only exception to this would be the 'Act-of-God' type zombies, actual risen dead. With any type of infection, the 'zombies' still have to follow intake food, water and oxygen. I didn't say 'eat, drink and breath' there because not everything 'eats' and 'drinks' in the way we think of it. Wild cats, for instance, get almost all of their water from their prey.

Alrght, honestly I think the only true possible cause that could happen, is fungus. I'm talking about the kind of fungus that takes over insect's bodies, mind controls them, then grows inside out from them, ala The Last of Us style.

Very unlikely scenario, I know, but still. What I had in mind, was rather reanimation pathogen, which would be activated by global event. That way, several days old corpses would rise from the grave. Dead people are everywhere, and if not killed by one, people still die every day. Accidents happen, and it is probably impossible to stop such a boulder in motion in, lets say, center of Mumbai. Apocalypse would start instantly, everywhere where human deaths are out of hand. Hell, you could even hear undead pounding coffin walls from 6 feet under on a good Sunday evening.

dude, fucking oil rigs! they are completely isolated from shore and tower far above the waterline. even a bloated, floating zombie could never climb aboard. you would virtually never have to worry about security as long as you triple check the entire rig beforehand for zombies. Its a fucking floating fortress. the only thing you have to worry about would be survival.

they have their own living and medical facilities and many are stocked with up to 6 months food for an entire crew. Even if the food depletes, you can always go fishing. And unless the rig is extremely close to land, there is no danger of industrial pollution in the water from abandoned factories. they have their own distilleries, so fresh water will never be a problem. Since all are equipped to mine either oil or natural gas, power will be unlimited. Even if you don’t know how to operate the rig, there will surely be some storage tank you can generate power from. If not, maybe Wind or tidal powered dynamos could be introduced as a substitute.

The only thing i can think of that would be a downfall would be the maintenance. Corrosion will be the number one enemy, eventually winning out against all preventative measures. Some things could be maintained, but sensitive electronic gear, however, such as computers, radios, and medical machinery, will eventually go and will be the hardest to replace. Eventually, the entire complex will deteriorate to a rusty piece of shit in the middle of the ocean.

Unlike prisons and military bases, offshore oil rigs will be the first places abandoned. Within the first few days of an outbreak, workers will no doubt demand to get to their families, leaving the rig without a trained staff. If none of your group knows how to operate the machinery, learning might be difficult. Industrial accidents, explosions of stored oil and gas, may result from people operating the rig with no fucking clue what they are doing. And in the middle of the ocean, that’d be pretty bad. Probably the safest way to go would be just to shut down the drill and not try to operate anything.

Now all i need is a boat

At least someone has got it figured out. Seriously. The bigger and shinier it is, the worse someone else wants it for themselves. Like, there's thousands of brick fucking houses at any given location, and hundreds of thousands of pool tables across the world, everyone deserves at least one set of basement and a pool table, if they survive... Think people, think.

I hope you have a secure bug out destination in mind and keep enough fuel to get there in your vehicle at all times because there is no way you are getting enough gas to feed that fuel guzzling monster for long after z-day.

True, I didn't really go into greater detail because, honestly, I'm too lazy to put that kind of effort into a fantasy (unless it's porn), but the process I'm describing isn't completely beyond the realm of possibility.

Cancer has a strange quality where the primary tumor releases cells into the blood stream and forms secondary sites, these are generally benign and otherwise undetectable, but when the primary tumor is removed it triggers a chemical marker that activates the secondary sites. Hence why we use chemotherapy before and after surgery: eliminate those secondary sites before they turn into another tumor (and hopefully before killing he patient).

So, no, a virus can't go berserk, but that doesn't preclude the possibility that altered cells could have a similar function: upon the host's death the cells begin to go into the aforementioned "overdrive", whatever this mechanism entails it restores enough bodily functions to "reanimate" a corpse, and the byproduct of this overdrive is a chemical marker that will cause benign altered cells to also go into an overdrive state.

This can conveniently explain why the viral infection can have standard vectors while the "zombification" is only upon death or fluid transfer.

Of course, this only brings up even more holes that need justification regarding cell metabolism, the nervous system, higher brain functions, etc... but that would be way too much tl;dr for a lot of crap that wouldn't pan out anyway.

I see what this guy is saying, seems like a valid point but...
>>4460
> its now accepted that 'zombie virus' encompasses parasitic, bacterial, viral and several other options both biological and other that cause the final symptoms
...I agree with this too. We really have no idea what we will be working with in the beginning. It could be as straight forward as Rabies (albeit an accelerated version), or as complex as symbiotic alien brain worms that rode in on a comet. We really have to work backwards with what we can expect and plan for all possible contingencies.
>>4466
>Cancer has a strange quality where the primary tumor releases cells into the blood stream and forms secondary sites...
Yea or it could be crazy cancer. Maybe the primary site mutates the brain and the secondary sites help make the whole thing move. They might work their way into the limbs which would otherwise be too rotten or damaged to function.

There was a pretty epic story here that was posted some 7 or 8 years ago that featured 28days later type zombies but also... well raped their victims as well. I was wondering if anyone knows where that story is. It keeps... haunting me.
