HOW would you survive a ZOMBIE invasion?

Even if a zombie invasion did occur, the U.S. military branches and police forces would easily be able to wipe out a bunch of sluggish corpses. But if it did happen and the military was not able to put it to rest…
I would probably just find an abandoned apartment on the top floor of a complex, and hole myself up there with food, guns, water, and ammo. And anyone who wasn't infected I would invite to stay so they could help. Then I would climb on the roof from time to time to create a system of blanket ropes that connect to the roofs of other buildings. And I would simply make these ropes from building to building until it reached a place with food. So when I began to run low on food I would just climb across the ropes to the store with food. And if the zombies happened to break down the bolted, locked, and boarded up door, I'd simply grab some of the guns, food and water and escape to the roof.
If zombies were to exist, why wouldn't they begin to eat each other? I mean, they're all made of human flesh, even if it is slightly decayed. So if they did just eat each other, the humans left wouldn't have a problem.

1. Use anything that can be used to knock off their heads.
2. Don't split up.
3. Don't use fire.
4. For further information, refer to the Zombie Survival Guide.

=D Good luck with the invasion!
How long can you wait..?

I'm not sure I follow this train of logic; how are you going to secure the blanket rope onto the other building in order to climb to it?

Like a ninja hookshot kind of thing. Right mike_mcpeeper? I would panic, curl into the foetal position and if they hadn't found me yet I'd work out a plan.
What kind of zombies are we talking about here? The Resident Evil slow movers, the Resident Evil Crimson Head Super Zombies, movie zombies (less powerful than Resi it seems), 28 Days Later running zombies, Dead Set uber aggressive zombies (and Davina Macall T_T). Some peoples plans seem only suited to certain kinds- we need to be prepared for all situations people! I like the sound of the trap but running zombies might clog up the whatever in their huge numbers ^_^.
I'm pretty screwed. Traditional zombies come out of the grave and I have a graveyard right next to my school and one near my home. If it was in school the Science department would be a good place for bombs, but if it was running zombies that would be SO HARD to reach. There I've made myself paranoid- I hope you're happy!

Well slow zombies the world is fine. Fast running zombies, we're screwed.

But as the zombie survival guide points out, invest in one of those suits that people wear when they research sharks. No way can the human mouth break threw that.

Now I see why you're posting this everywhere.

I gotta pay more attention.

There is no surviving, man! Haven't you watched those zombie movies till the end? Dawn of the Dead, Resident Evil, all of them! The entire group of survivors dies eventually, with exception to Milla Jokovich.

So maybe the safest place to hide is somewhere inside her…

I digress. What I would do is try and turn myself as soon as possible - why delay the inevitable?

I'm still positive it'll end up like Shaun of the Dead with the Grenadier Guards/USMC etc showing up and blowing all the zombies away with great ease. I'd really like to see zombies taking on AH-64 Apaches and fuel-air explosive. They're the same as slow moving masses of unarmed human waves. Of course the quandry is how we poor souls will survive until that occurs.

Mr. Maxim's invention took care of them at the turn of the 20th Century. ;) I think it could do it again. That's my zombie survival plan. At least six people in a secure house with semi-automatic weapons, food and plenty of ammunition. A log blockhouse would be ideal, but enough lumber can turn a lot houses into that.

there was a cool part of an old issue of Deadworld like that.well no one hid in Milla, but this dude and his brother get attacked in the woods by the main villian, a talking harley riding zombie called King Zombie. i'm sure i dont have to tell ya what happened to his brother. but the other one tries to go the way you were talking about. heh heh heh.



sorry it's so hard to read, basically, the dude asks king zombie not to screw him up to much when he kills him so he can come back as a zombie instead of just being dead. KZ, very colorfully explains what it's like to be a zombie and says “is that what you really want?”
Billy goes “yeah”.
kz snaps his neck and says he's happy to oblige him, but he's gonna have a hell of a time goin through his zombie life with his head floppin around like a wet noodle. haha!

thought some of ya might get a kick outa this.

Even though this is a necroposted thread here, I feel the need to point out that the portion of the human brain that controls basic functions like breathing, survival traits and instincts, and is probably the only part actually keeping them “alive” at that point, is approximately the size of a large walnut. Good luck hitting it with a bullet that's on average somewhere between .25 and .5 inches across.

I suggest you go out to the range with those bullets and shoot up some fruit or other models similar to the human head. A 5.56 goes tumbling end over end and creates some really nasty wounds. That walnut will be half gone. 7.62 blows out the whole back of the head (remember JFK? and that was only 6.5mm) The whole walnet is gone. 12.7? Forget about it, there is no head remaining.

You don't want to see what a dart an inch across going at 3000 fps does to the contents of a tank turret after penetration of three inches of hardened steel.

I have. I'm a fairly proficient marksman with a .45 pistol. I also played airsoft for 2 years, and let me say that in my experience it can be quite difficult to hit a human head even when it's moving at a walk beyond 10-15 yards especially if that head is alert to your presence. I'm just saying that the whole “shoot it in the head” bit can be a little over-exaggerated when they start showing some average Joe blowing out the undead's brains from 30 yards with a .22. Granted, if you nail a person in the head with a 12.7 mm round or even a 5.56 mm it's going to cause a mess, but in my experience a lot of people have a hard time hitting that head to begin with.

I'm not going to argue it, since my experience is probably quite different from yours. I just think there's probably an easier way.

shoot it in the head
Well, they are zombies… You could sort of just keep your machine gun trained at head hieght and swep side to side…
Infact, don't even worry about head height- just cut the buggers up any old way :)

That 50 cal = no head thing is bravdo. It'll splatter you, but one shot through and parts of the front of the skull stay intact. Mostly. Not the back…
Heads are tougher than watermellons.

Now a 20mm bushmaster canon on an Apache will chew someone up in a disgusting way, but although splattered, the body is still there. …as you can see from the infrared footage taken by those pilots in Afghanistan.

…hmmm those sorts guns against humans… I think countries all talked about banning that sort of thing even before the first world war. -_-

I guess for the first part of my plan I'll move to Florida, near the Spaceport. When the zombie invasion occurs, I'll bust into the place and hope that the space shuttle is ready for launch. For as long as possible I'll grab a gun and load the shuttle full of food, repair equipment, and supplies. Then I'll rig the controls inside Mission Control so that I can just launch the spacecraft from the cockpit. I'll take just a few people with me; don't want the food to go too fast. I'll then launch us into space and stay there ‘til all the zombies are gone. Afterwards we’ll land and start the human race anew.

Of course, if the space shuttle isn't ready the base should have enough ammo to last a while…

What would foil this plan would be a zombie virus that has a long incubation time and can instantly transform its victim. Then the space shuttle would become a metal coffin for any survivors I took with me…

I beg to differ with 12.7mm. You're confusing armor piercing with normal tracer rounds. In a mixed belt (which is what it was SOP to carry on the tank though it was time consuming to make up, but hey it keeps you busy) the armor piercing round goes through you, the tree behind you and the drywall behind that. Nice neat hole, but a big nice neat hole. Usually if it hits anything but the uppoer skull, you can't recognize the guy except for the dogtags. As for regular rounds, it's always the top of head blown off. I don't recall zombies wearing ballistic armor and helmets. Short controlled killing bursts, not long bursts like in a war movie, zombies don't respond to suspression fire.

As far as body shots, you're going to have an immobile bunch of zombies squirming on the ground . They're no longer a threat. Maybe not dead, but effectively taken care of.

Tightly controlled three round bursts at head height. This is not a full auto war movie. (with proper training on the range, not bee-bopping through the woods like airsoft players. Sheesh, put up an infantry section from Iraq and the veteran airsoft guys are toast in about an hour. Special forces, fifteen minutes. Not a pretty sight. The airsoft players get really pissed ;)

I guess this is the difference between personnel trained to break things and kill people and civilian types?

Baaaaaaaaahhhhhh!!!

I got m new cavalry sabre the other day. I'd use that. …after I add some extra padding to that hard grip.

My dad's still partly deaf from firing 50 cals back in the army. I wouldn't like to follow in his footsteps. :(

A normal .33 rifle is even too loud for me. -_-

Weapons? Plans? Poppycock and silliness! All I need is a pair of good stompin' boots.

That's how you take care of zombies. You stomp 'em.
Hey buddy, you should be a Russian Cosmonaut, and here's why.

Without stompy boots, I'll be unable to kick in doors and windows to do the looting. It's a vicious circle -_-

i'll just hole up somewhere and wait for the inevitable all encompassing air strike.

air force wont mess around, and send in butloads of guys to die or become carriers/infected, they send in three, in a supersonic jet, launched from about 600 miles away, 1200 if you got a tanker squadron ready to go.

but of course, that sceneario only works if the zombie infestation is localized, e.g. dead rising or 28 days later.

and of course, my getaway plan is also different from rage virus zombies, to traditional undead zombies. rage virus i think i'm just screwed. traditional, i can blast my way out/out run, etc.
