When the zombies come and civilization collapses, do you really want to be stuck siphoning gas to power your vehicle and chainsaw? And after six months when the gas expires, what then? Well, with the new Zombie Apocalypse Bike, the vehicle and chainsaw are powered by your own two feet. Now you can massacre zombies and save the environment at the same time!
With a top speed of over 250 mph and a 0-60 time under three seconds, the Bugatti Veyron is damn fast. If you need to get out of a hoard in a hurry, it’s your best bet. Where you’ll find the gas to keep refilling this fuel burning machine however is your business.
To be honest, the only helpful thing about the Bugatti Veyron is the fact that it’s fast. You don’t need a fast car to get away from zombies, but you do if you’re trying to out-run other survivors that are trying to kill you for your supplies… yeah! They won’t catch you in this bad boy!
Would you use a Bugatti Veyron in a Zombie apocalypse?
Everyone thinks the best you’ll need a firearm to survive a zombie apocalypse. You need to arm yourself and everybody in your group, and you need shit loads of ammo. In short, you need to get to the gun store.
The only problem with this genius zombie survival tactic is that everybody else has the same idea. So assuming that the place hasn’t been clean out by thousands of other genius survivalists, it’s probably got hundreds of people trying to get in. It’s very likely that the gun shop is locked down like a fortress. I can imagine that the gun shop owners are barricaded inside and would rather like to keep their livelihood and defensive measures.
So if the shop hasn’t been raided dry already, now you have thousands of people on the outside of a suburban fortress, hurling “pretty pleases” at half-insane, heavily-armed, trained marksmen inside. Not only are you probably not coming away from the gun store with a shiny new weapon; you’d be lucky to get out of there without an impromptu sunroof installed in your skull.
Sail Boat vs Zombies
Zombies don’t swim! Well that’s the general consensus anyway. The infected won’t go near a deep body of water; the zombie apocalypse is a land-based phenomenon. A good ship or boat is a portable, weatherproof fortress where you can get a good night’s sleep without fear of zombie infestation or crazy isolated survivors. As long as you select the right areas to anchor up at night and avoid storms. A boat is the safest place to be in the event of a zombie apocalypse.
Another advantage of being on a ship is plentiful access to seafood.
Why use a sailboat?
It’s simple; if you run out of fuel you’ll still have wind power! Most sail boats have motors anyway but it’s always good to have a backup. Be on the lookout for more fuel, and run sails whenever possible. Also using a sail is dead silent. This is great for gathering supplies on shore without attracting thousands of zombies to the sound of your loud diesel motor.
I imagine that in a zombie apocalypse there will be three groups of survivors. The big groups in safe fortresses, the small skirmishers living live on the edge and the boat people. I think there will be a large community of people using boats to survive, all working together trading supplies. The will be the safest place, pirates will be your biggest problem.
Is the best Zombie Apocalypse Survival Hideout a prison? Prisons have their own medical centers, food growing gardens, kitchens, exercise yards, work out rooms, libraries, water supplies, generators, guard towers and above all else a triply fenced perimeter with kill funnels, multiple gated access doors and a big network of CCTV / security cams (your going to need eyes 247 on the fences).
The problem with a prison is the inmate survivors, as they may be of a less than desirable character with a whole section for rapists and molesters. That’s a large number of mouths to feed…
So here’s the hard question you need to ask yourself bro… Do you leave these people live? To you team up with them? Or do you let them die to save on food and avoid the risk of security breaches?
Vehicles For A Zombie Apocalypse - #1 Earthroamer XV-LT
At a gross vehicle weight of nearly 9 tons, this baby is going over or through anything that gets in its way. The best part? Even during the zombie apocalypse, you can still use it to enjoy a nice merlot on vacation at the Grand Canyon, while appreciating your granite countertops and leather seating. No electricity? No problem, this rig relies on solar power and diesel fuel for all of its needs. Just in case the going gets tough, it’ll ford 24 inches of water and gives you a minimum ground clearance of about ten inches.
The XV-LTs starting price is $215k, but in a zombie apocalypse money is not an issue. Just make sure you find out where the nearest Earthroamer is and steal it at the first sign of an outbreak.
The problem with this vehicle is that it’s inefficient when it comes to fuels consumption. It sucks that shit dry! But it holds a lot of fuel and could last a long time on a full tank. So your tactic with this vehicle would be to stay rural and fill up on dissuaded vehicles in the country side.
We think that a Tomahawk is an ideal choice for a melee weapon, it would be ideal for destroying the brain. Hatchets are a miniature and lighter version of an axe, featuring a sharp edge and firm grip handle, they can supply enough power to crack through any bones, it can be wielded in one hand and easily brought up, with one quick swing it will damage the brain of the Zombie. It might require some force to pry the hatchet out of the skull; so be ready for that. It is easy to use, and it can be used very quickly to take on many zombies.
Keeping your distance from zombies and keeping quiet is necessary. So would a longbow and a few quivers full of arrows be enough to survive? To protect my family? I’d like to think so, and here is why.
Peace and Quiet
A bow would be a better choice over a gun because it is a much quieter weapon. The primitive mind of a zombie is attracted to loud noises. Longbows are whisper quiet, allowing users to get close enough to take out a zombie without detection and continue to do so for as long as it takes. Should you miss, you’ll have an opportunity for another shot without alerting the horde to your presence. That isn’t going to happen with a pistol, shotgun, or even a long range rifle. You are exposed as soon as you fire the weapon. I don’t care how far away you are, they are headed in your general direction and there may be some around you were unaware of.
Arrows can be used over and over again. Bullets can’t. You’ll probably have to sterilize the shaft after punching it through a zombies eye, but I’m guessing that will be a whole lot easier than finding bullets, especially considering the average gun user at the time will be either a complete newbie, or a paranoid, trigger-happy moron.
Guns require maintenance. They need to be oiled, cleaned, and cared for. Longbows don’t need to be. You’ve got a stick, a string, and your arrows to worry about. You can repair a bow with items found in any hardware, department, or dollar store. If those aren’t an option, nature has everything you need. You can’t fix a gun with pine pitch and a sharp rock.
A Hunter’s Weapon
Stickbows are stealthy, lightweight, easy to maneuver through the woods, and work well for all types of game. You can even recover your arrow should you miss. A bullet is gone once it is fired and the noise will have your favorite spot swarming with the undead. Good luck finding game once they start meandering around.
There is a downside to every upside, and this isn’t any different. I’ll admit there would be cons to fighting zombies with a stickbow, the obvious being shot placement. Zombies die from trauma to the brain. The eye socket, temple, and spine are ideal targets, and none of them are easy to hit while moving. Should you connect, there is no guarantee of termination. You would need constant practice, but that shouldn’t be a problem given the target rich environment you’ve now inherited. If you can’t shoot, you won’t be killing zombies. Period.
