It's not about the weapon, it's about how you use it.

What about a machine gun.

'bekosim batman' 2 days ago
carry glock 17's. Less jams huge capacity lightweight easy to clean and accurate. Also 9mm means more common ammo and also lightweight. Best use a .22.

I think it's kinda unfair as Jamie moved around and got stuck on the bodies even though in reality you could just walk on them.
Christoper Antonio Johan
for the gun why just dont use minigun or else???
Gilbert Medina
'Gilbert Medina' 3 days ago
I think if they put a squib in there then the gun count would be even less haha but clearing jams takes a split second with someone who practices with a gun

It would depend on what gun you were using. If you had a Saw machine gun you could have exterminated all of them them.

This is not realistic because if you swing an ax into a human being's skull, you still have to prive your ax out of the head, which takes precious time off of you
'Poodleinacan' 6 days ago
0:30 ..... This is just a regular wood-chopping axe..... Not an axe to kill people (or zombies)..... And his fantasy axe is even less appropriate.

Such a dumb test,what about what would actually be used,a ak-47 with 30 rounds that almost never jams and a new 30 round clip is 3 seconds away.Just TRULLY TRULLY ask who would TRULLY...use a axe on a horde of zombies over even a pistol.nobody.

i personally have my belt which has a single mag holderand a cheat rig with 4 15 rd magazines for my glock 27 and plus a "holder" for my crossbow bolts and will be adding a multiple(not sure how many yet but i have 2 30rd mags as of right now) holder for my 300 blackout AR. if i dont even use my shotgun which hold 5+1 plus 5 more on the stock then i can conceivably take out 140 zombies. im reasonably certain i can reload my glock and unload all the rounds in a few minutes and thats after i use my AR first for the distance shots.

That's a relatively more scientific simulation for zombie apocalypse (than most zombie movies). Try a sword/machete/kukri/tomahawk next time :)
Jake Turner
'Jake Turner' 2 weeks ago
a lot of people don't realize the idea that if zombies did exist as in human zombies, it would be very easy to kill and escape them. if they are anything like in the shows, their muscles are too destroyed to do anything. if they are all torn up like in the show, even if they have full muscle potential, with that much damage to the muscle it is practically useless. Plus, with no filter on the brain, muscle potential would be maxed out l, and as a result their muscles would be ABSOLUTELY ripped and shredded within minutes of no filter. The zombie might be able to infect or corrupt another human before it becomes useless, the same thing would happen. People can seriously damage their muscles from using their full potential for just seconds. Zombies ad humans would have no chance of destroying the human race.

axe is better or with infinite ammo gun
'FragranceConsultant' 3 weeks ago
At that range, an experienced shooter could pull off a couple headshots per second, reload in 2 seconds, plus keep a safe distance. I'll take a handgun every time.

Aelyn Jacobs
'Aelyn Jacobs' 3 weeks ago
I completely understand that they can't actually wack people in the head with an axe but if you think about it the force of an axe has to quick and strong and the human skull is really strong so it could get stuck I don't think that an axe would be better than a gun but I also don't think a gun is good either

You can try using a smaller axe with a Long handle so that it would be more efficient. Also you can use both gun and axe
