Enough weight to break a spine or lop off the top of a head. Zombies are kinda squishy.

 

Or wait for the bullets to run out and make a gunstock club.

I could make some of those from the cabriolet legs on my kitchen table. Maybe drive some really long nails through the heavy end for emphasis.

That's the point. Once the bullets run out not everyone will have access to pikes, halberds and swords. But a 6' piece of wood with something sharp jammed in the end is pretty easy to source/manufacture.

lol. They're in Georgia. Gloves and multiple layers of clothing / body armor / wesuit is really what you want to be wearing when its 95 degrees and 80% humidity... You'd probably overheat and die in a wetsuit.
Plus when running away from walkers you don't want extra weight to slow you down. Plus, like greenfrog said that walker tore dale apart pretty easily... and if you get surrounded by a bunch of them thick clothes or armor is only going to do so much.

It's probably a good idea for wearing against the governors men when you'll be facing gunfire (like they did in the last episode) but not something you're gonna want to wear all day every day.

Fire discipline folks, fire discipline. The primary reason for full auto, suppressing fire, is going to have no impact on zombies.

Yeah, but the majority of people died relatively quickly and most probably didn't use much ammo before they died. There's probably enough stockpiled ammunition sitting around to last the surviving people decades. This is America after all, don't forget how much we love guns here.

But yeah, in the short term fire discipline would be a good idea since you don't know when you'll be able to re-stock ammo.

That's a pretty first class wacking stick.

Optimally I think you would want two, a mid length spear/staff type of weapon to keep Z at a distance and then a shorter axe/club/short sword
for when they got inside your reach.

I actually have a ZOD aka spetsnaz shovel and it is a pretty awesome zombie stomping tool:

Looks like a great season is coming up.
post #1572 of 2059
Well, let's just hope it's better than the last season.

Looks like more prison. Clearly they'll be leaving in this season but it needs to happen sooner rather than later. I hope we don't have entire episodes about securing the gates. rolleyes.gif
