I'm a member of a bladesmith's forum, and someone cropped up there recently asking for design tips for making a lobo. We had to conclude that it's probably the least effective weapon ever.

Less effective than a full-sized bat'leth?

Yes.  That solid steel shaft is daft.  I have a solid steel shaft to had - it's a barbell.  No way on Earth I'm sticking a batwing axe shovel mutation on that and using it with any speed.  But it's a delicious easter egg for the survival community who buy entrenching tools with one sharp axe edge.  Wink

...living in an urban area makes a pretty good case for acquiring a Humber Pig and equipping it as a 'panic vehicle'. Just make sure it's topped off with supplies and ready to go at a moment's notice. There's no way zombies will find their way into one of those.. You won't be able to hide in there forever, but it ought to buy you plenty of time to make an escape from the city.

My god that is menacing. I need to buy one, just so when I have kids I can pick them up from primary school, and scare the shit out of everyone:D

Finally! A zombie thread! In relation to the beginning, no, it's not insane to have a plan. You never know, it may happen at any moment. I myself am trying to come up with some sort of anti-zombie fortress, just in case a class 4 should ever arise Smiley

Hmmm...
Why not simply get a decent tank or battlefield recovery vehicle
like this one:
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

And crush the horde?
And I think a decent machine gun or AGM can wreck havoc among vampires, too. Weapon of choice: Napalm!

Because they're expensive as hell and -depending where you live- tracked vehicles may not be road registered. Aside from that, an 8-ton up-armored PIG crushes zombies just as well.. Grin

It worked extremely well in Return to Castle Wolfenstein - set fire to zombies and they soon stop moving.

By the way, I don't think it's been posted here yet, the forums at www.zombiehunters.org are an excellent discussion on how to survive all the worst case scenarios. They also have a rather impressive and growing wiki for the basics of survival at: http://zombiehunters.org/wiki/index.php/Main_Page

The curse of gaming - to get a brain to boil in a skull you've got to heat it for plenty of time.  Corroborating my granny's old headcheese recipes with the average temperature of burning grave-clothes, I'd give it 15-20 minutes.  Flee!  Flee into the woods!

Yes, but it would take a bit less time for the sinews and muscles to burn away, leaving the zombies immobilised.

The only snag is that having carbonised them we can't make Zombiediesel. Back to the drawing board I think...

What about a gun that fires liquid nitrogen?  You could freeze the zed, but it in your converter, bam, Zomdiesel.

So, I played this nifty Zombie game, in which my character got his hands on a flame thrower.
I set fire to a zombie, but, not enough damage to kill it.
The next round it grabbed me...guess what happened to me?
Yup...almost, but, not quite enough damage to make me a flaming zombie too.

On the bright side, at least the ninjas couldn't get you. It's a little known fact that ninjas cannot catch you if you're on fire.
