Nope. They can only eat, moan, shuffle, grab, and bite. Not much else a zombie is capable of.

How do zombies reproduce then? Wait, never mind you just told me.

I recomend every one tries out the new Tacticle Zombie Survival Simulator, Or Dead Rising for short. I've found a giant umbrella to be useful.

Quite so.


And remember kids, if you ever need guns out of a gun store being guarded by a crazy drunk redneck with a gun, hide behind the doors so the shotgun blasts can get ya :wink:

Is that a bannana that Neo made? WTF!


Plate armor? I think Roman Legion armor would work better.

yeah if you were encased in armor they couldent bite you, and they probably would be to stupid to take it off. you would get tired swining around a big sword though...


just take the nose cannon out of a fighter aircraft, make a nice tripod, voila, noone gets you now (till you run out of ammo)

Unfortunately both ideas are erroneous.

Plate armour is held on by rather flimsy leather thongs (not the lingere article), and would therefore be ripped off quite easily. Also, if one were toppled whilst encased in the aforementioned armour, one would be completely helpless and could be devoured by the oncoming hordes of undead.

As for aircraft cannon, machine guns, and the like, they are all perfectly suited for injuring zombies, but not completely dispatching them. You see, machine guns fire in a cone, thus making accuracy very difficult. Not only are they inaccurate, but they are loud and deplete their ammo supplies very quickly.

Look through the thread, most of these ideals have been discussed.

Plate armor would slow you down far to much

it's better to be able to get the hell away from the zombie horde then it is to stand and get eaten crushed or zombfied

Not really. You won't be winning any 50 meter dashes in a harness but it doesn't slow you down badly. It does wear you out quickly if you aren't used to it and the heat fatigue is something fierce.

It is "pointed" on with lacings and with various straps.

When issued their full gear, a modern soldier has a greater load than a man-at-arms and it is distributed far worse.

"Often we used out Colts for firing single shots, sniping... From many tests on the ranges, in both Canada and England, we found that we could sight in by firing single shots and then leave the gun in position and go back later and fire a burst which would split the bullseye." - Herbert McBridge, WWI machinegunner, sniper, and officer.

Now, to be fair, he is talking about the advantage of the Colt MG over the Vickers. This was not something the Vickers could do nearly as well. But McBride was working with WWI technology and he rarely, if ever, speaks of the Emma Gees firing at less than 200 yards.

If you have trouble swinging a three pound sword, I don't know what you guys are going to do with ten pound rifles.

Basically what I'm trying to get at.

Also, wasn't the Vickers the most accurate/ranged machine gun of its calibre?

I think you guys have to draw a line between WW1 HMGS which were very heavy, fixed and in some cases watercooled and something like the SAW pictured (or any other modern LMG).

I mean on one hand you've got a 50 kilo monster that can fire all day from a fixed position and on the other hand you've got something that weighs say... 10 odd kilos and is intended to be fired by one bloke.

I'd guess there's going to be a big difference in accuracy just in terms of one being deployed from a tripod and the other being fired from the shoulder.

I know what you are saying but all weapons produce a cone of fire. When rifle shooters speak of Minutes of Angle, that is their "cone of fire." Unless you are trying to make headshots at 300 yards with an MG, the cone of fire is not going to make it impossible to boink zombors.

McBride was not as fond of the Vickers because of the water-cooled design and it's lack of accuracy compared to the Colt. It wasn't always possible to bring water up to the line quickly enough to cool the barrel and in many cases "making water" was simply impossible.

Why? The post DerMann responded to was about taking an MG off a FIGHTER jet and rigging up a tripod for it. An M2 HMG with a tripod actually weighs more than the Vickers setup. (Though most modern U.S. aircraft sport Gatling guns, not MGs)
