Note that my preparation is for the Rage type of zombies because it will be unlikely that the dead arise.
Zombie Surviving Plan Edit
Enviroment: Switzerland (Cold with occaisional sun and heat) (I live in the country with a sporting rifle club and barns nearby. Town Population = 1043)
Top: Camo Skiing Jacket. Thick enough to protect yourself from a zombie's bites and attacks, keeps warm.
Bottom: Military Cargo Trousers with knee protection.
Boots: Durable and warm hiking boots that can be used to climb, run and crush a skull.
Head: Light Army Helmet. Protects from bites, blunts, knives and fits extremely well. Also has the "scare" effect on bandits. May make me a target, though.
Face: Any Mask that covers my mouth, fits and gives me still good vision.
Googles: Tactical Nightvision/IR glasses.
Quality over Quantity
Ranged Primary (Sniper): Scoped african poacher rifle. Able to shoot with almost anything that fits into the muzzle.
Ranged Primary (Assault): SIG553 with 4x Red Dot and vertical grip.
Ranged Secondary: Any good handgun i find at the shooting range.
Melee Primary: Hatchet. Break barricades, doors and heads.
Melee Secondary: M9 Bayonet from elementalknives.com
Melee Optional: Crowbar. You all know how good this thing is when it comes to hunting crabs.
(I may use a multitool that combines Hatchet/Crowbar, allowing me to carry more if i find a good one on the internet)
- Swiss army knife
- Binoculars w/ thermal vision
- Walkie Talkie
- A mini revolver if i get captured by bandits
- Random Tactical Shit (like flares or grenades)
For group transport and scavenging, Offroad Pick-up.
The Plan Edit
Barricade my house and then secure family members and friends. I will call the others while i still can and advise them to bar their doors and stay inside with a weapon ready.
After the family is save, i move on advising people that are non-infected and will give out anti-panic pills. Keeping a cool head is important during the apocalypse. I will tell the people to group up and if someone gets bitten, then there are 3 Options:
- Exile. If the person returns after 1 or 2 months and is still not one of them, they will be reintegrated, but under supervision.
- Lockup with amputation of bitten limb/Cure attempts. Then they will be tied to a bed. Executed when turned.
My Home. Stone walls, 3 stories, metal garage door, on a hill, 2m wooden fences to each side supported with bamboo, fotovoltaic, vegetables and fruits, natural spring, a vault from the wartime, many options of entertainment (books, piano), a lot of clothes and good isolation.
I also have a private herb garden in which i grow various herbs with healing abilities (i have an old book about herbs) that i can brew into various potions and medicine. Do not underestimate herbs, but keep in mind that real life is not a videogame. Herbs need sometimes more than an hour before you start noticing changes.
Surviving the outbreak. Edit
After i grouped everyone up, i will create sort of a "faction" in my village. Most of the people will be in a panic and glady have someone that gives them a stable structurization back. Defending from hordes is easy because there are hills everywhere, the only road is steep and narrow and there is a huge farmland nearby with cows, sheeps, crops et cetera where you can easily snipe someone.
Scavengers will be sent to the city in groups of 5, mostly athlets. Students will be continuing to learn, but more focused on biology, chemics and physics than english or maths.
Trapped in base! EditIf our base gets surrounded and a sacrifice is needed, i will put on a fireproof suit, gasmask and get the flamethrower and molotovs. The fire will take down the horde and even if i die, they will set their fellow infected on fire, killing everyzombie. The chances of survival may vary, depending on horde size.
Note: The Firearms i listed in this plan are at my disposal, allowing for a quick execution of this plan.
