The choice for the right weapon is not easy to make. It will depend first on your skills.
The best weapon is preparation; training with a weapon can make that weapon 100 times more effective.
We suggest that you practice using your weapons of choice as often as possible and seek professional training when possible.
Baseball bats, chainsaws, crowbars are favourite in movies and games but appear to be ineffective when faced with several zombies. Many zombie survivalists also promote or even recommend mêlée weapons over firearms.
They are heavy, slow and become less efficient for each killed zombie because of the energy they require. Moreover, mêlée weapons causes you to run the risk of exposing yourself to infection, either through a zombie bite or blood splatter, especially if you are tired or injured.
Do not, under any circumstances, consider using a chainsaw to fight even a single zombie. They're heavy, loud, create splatter that can infect you, and quickly become useless when run out of gas or batteries. Moreover, the killing power of the chainsaw is limited as it requires some effort on the part of the user to cut into a zombie's neck or head.
Include knives, swords, axes, spikes …, These weapons are great at slicing off limbs and piercing flesh.
Blades have no ammunition, but you need to have experience with one to use it effectively and it becomes more difficult with each added zombie. Proper training can lead effectiveness and energy efficiency. While a katana or a scimitar might be great to exhibit in front of pretty women during a zombie apocalypse, they're about as useful as bare hands if you don't know how to use them.
Be aware that a blade does not allow you to stay at a distance and you can easily be grabbed by a zombie, limiting your movement or your option of retreating.… The sword is one of the best weapons of all time and has a wide range of styles. Pick up the one you feel the more confortable with.
