Im sure many a zombie enthusiast has had this question asked to them…
If you could have any weapon in The Zombie Apocalypse what would it be?
I decided to take that not only one but two steps further by asking…
What 5 sci-fi weapons would you kill for in the Zombie Apocalypse?
Im sure at this point you are drooling over the possibilities of arsenal of all your favorite weapons from video games, movies ,books, and well your imagination…
So without further delay I give you
#5- The Lancer
When epic games cooked up this little masterpiece they weren’t even thinking of The Undead but once you put that aside you see a marvel of mechanics that would definitely make short work of well pretty much anything.
As you can see above The Lancer is not your traditional automatic weapon. It features an extremely unique and a first of its kind “Chainsaw Bayonet” which when combined with the powerful automatic fire of The Lancer gives you a formidable weapon to use on the undead
- Features both long rang and close range capabilites
- Chainsaw bayonet-Nuff said
- Automatic Fire
- Ammo and fuel are not unlimited
- Due to its length close quarter fire and movement is limited
- Extremely loud in either use
#4- The Portal Gun
The portal gun is just that: A gun that shoots portals allowing you to move quickly from A to B but in the hands of someone clever The Portal Gun can be your personal savior if Zombies are on your heals. There is the most obvious use for The Portal Gun and that is to escape and evade your pursuers. On top of that you can drop the undead from say high points on buildings as they run at you… I know this may not stop them but they are definitely no longer a serious threat.
Other possibilities may include: Quickly scavenging and escaping buildings , Funneling the undead into a Portal trap leading them directly to the moon, infinite loop zombies and the list goes on.
- Unlimited ammo (citation may be needed here)
- Efficient travel
- Does not shoot deadly rounds
- Awkward shape and size
- Lack of available portal medium/space to shoot at
- Numerous effective ways to dispatch or stall The Undead
- Tracing Capability
- The little red button- Just in case you get overwhelmed
- ammunition is likely to be limited as there are so many options packed into a small space
- awkward size and shape
- The little red button- Forgetting to ask what it does
#2- The Phaser
The long time favorite of Star fleet and the crew of The U.S.S Enterprise The Phaser would add a lot of punch to your Zombie arsenal. Their many uses include complete disintegration of The Undead, Stunning hostile or uncooperative members of The Living, breaking down barriers or obstacles,Start fires quickly and efficiently not to mention some variations of the weapon can easily fit in your pocket.
- Extremely powerful-Can disintegrate Zombies with ease
- Small and lightweight
- Many different uses in the apocalypse
- Limited Battery life
- Seems Delicate-I wouldn’t want to drop it or use it as a hand held bludgeon weapon
Perhaps the most Iconic Sci-Fi Weapons of all time The Light Saber features a plasma type blade with and infinite power source packed in its hilt and is the favorite weapon of The Jedi and their arch rivals The Sith. The Light Saber although created for a galaxy far far away seems like the perfect tool to have in the Zombie Apocalypse.
It can cut through literally anything so I feel a bag of bones and rotting flesh wont be much of a challenge. One cant help but imagine how effectively you could slice through The Undead in a spinning fashion with a saber firmly grasped in each hand.
Wave after wave would fall at your feet simply by closing your eyes and waving it in front of you even if you are cornered and Traditional problems like tiring from weight or excerpted force of a regular sword would hardly be an issue as it would seem like waving your hand through the wind.
- Infinite energy
- Can cut through anything with ease
- Close Quarters only
- Requires care with use
- Hard to name more
Oh and just for fun!
