Zombie Survival: How To Kill A Zombie

Zombie Kill Guide

 Zombies are them troublesome dead walkers that just get in the way of a good night out, they either want to eat your brains or have a quick nibble on your nuts, they are usually slow creatures that are easy to outrun, but in high numbers and in confined spaces they can be fatal, this is a guide of sorts on how to kill a zombie, it is common sense people so in the event of a zombie holocaust it is advisable that you take the necessary precautions against these undead deadites.

First and foremost, when you shoot a gun try to aim for the head shot, because in too many films have I seen some rather dumb people just waste valuable ammo shooting the zombies shoulders and chest, one head shot seems to do it and if you can't shoot straight, it's best to go to a shooting range to practice your gun skills, because if you don't you will probably be that bad at shooting a gun, you will pop a cap in some poor bastards arse who may not be a zombie and that would be bad.

Sharpen them machetis up, so that when the time comes you can have yourselves a zombie decapitation spree in the local shopping mall whilst doing the shopping, could be a bit of entertainment, as severing the head from the body is also a way to go for killing a zombie, the brain seems to be the main force driving these deadly rotting creatures.

Other ways you may not have thought of:

Liquid nitrogen could be a good alternative when thrown on the head, be careful not to get any of it on your hands and genitals as they will be as cold as a snowmans balls, liquid nitrogen may not be a common substance so a bit of carefully controlled fire in a confined room could do the trick, as always though aim for the head, try and destroy that brain as they are really quite thick anyway - don't let Bub fool you by flicking through a book and loading a gun like in the original Day Of The Dead.

Knives and other stabbing weapons, aim for the brain, you could get to it through the eyes, the nose or the mouth or even the ears.

Warning If the zombies are the fast running kind that is actually quite disrepectful to classic zombies, then you may get eaten, so stock up on guns to take them all down with a head shot, you may want to do this sniper style from the roof of a building, particularly if you want to gain access to a casino or cinema for a little entertainment and popcorn.

Household Furniture and other stuff - Around the house there may be just the thing for killing a zombie right under your nose, so prepare in advance, a chair for instance can be broken and made into a weapon to fend of those dirty zombie ho's, or a glass vase smashed over the head may just dig in the zombies brain and make them die....yeahhh kill the zombies!!

There may be other inventive ways to kill zombies with grenades or by lighting your own farts on them, but whatever you choose, make it count, before they over run the world and form political parties of their own and run for president and prime minister of all countries and they make us pay taxes and make us watch reality TV....oh no I've just realized it's worse than I thought, they are already here....reality TV is at an all time high...we will become zombies soon....noooooooooooooooo!

More Ways To Kill A Zombie

Zombies are horrible undead creatures and they should be punished for being so ugly looking, so with a few mentions in the comments below I am able to update this helpful guide on Zombie Killing and first things first go and buy a Chainsaw on Amazon below to really get the best killing tool for these zombie rotters.

Chainsaws are ideal for chopping the zombies head off, but be careful to have enough petrol in your chainsaw as running out of it just as an army of zombies are heading towards you is not a good sign....

Check out the chainsaws below and pick a good one....

Read A Well Thought Out Book....

 A good book that I read awhile ago that sticks in my mind is this one which I reviewed World War Z which is a fictitious account of a zombie apocalypse and it gives a good account of what could happen and through this book you can work out what to do to survive when the zombies spread over the world.

Knowledge is power when it comes to zombies, so prepare with as much tactical information you can acquire by reading articles like this and books on the subject of zombie survival, it's not who you know it's what you know!

How Would You Kill Zombies? 142 comments

to kill a zombie u would have to destroy a major a part like the head if you shoot it in the chest enough time it will fall and stay down for a while but it will still be a live

waynet profile image

waynet 3 years ago from Hull City United Kingdom Author

lol.....what a pile of shite!


spadkins 3 years ago

I'm sorry to break it to you guys, but this article is so low-quality with so much missing information, not even to mention the fact that it's hard to understand because of there being only 11 sentences in a page long article...

So I am going to write down a few of the things I would have changed about this article.

Chainsaws, for one, are crap weapons in the zombie apocalypse. Not only are they loud, attracting more zombies and drowning out orders or information your team, but they are heavy, clumsy, and they have a finite amount of fuel. And, most importantly, zombie blood splatters everywhere, including on you. One drop of their blood in your eye, your mouth, any open wounds, and you're infected yourself in around 24 hours.

Also, decapitating a zombie does not kill them in the least. Sure, they are 90% less dangerous than when they had bodies, but all decapitating really does is leave a zombie head rolling around trying to bite your ankles.

A "controlled fire" INSIDE a building during the zombie apocalypse is in and of itself an oxymoron. You cannot control a fire in a flammable structure. End of story.

The fast running "type/breed" of zombies is not another "type/breed" of zombies, just as there are not "classic zombies". There are real zombies, and there are fictional zombies. And all zombies can run. It's only a matter of how fit they where in life, how old they were as humans, how old they are as zombies, and whether their legs are still functional or not.

There is around a .5% chance of killing a zombie by smashing a vase over their head. It would be more effective to jam a shard of said vase through their eye.

And the last paragraph is just plain stupid.

By the way, in case you don't believe what I'm saying, I am simply quoting other 1%er zombie experts such as Max Brooks and Matt Mogk.

OK everyone listen to me. Zombies are just humans who have been subject to a virus that kills the brain then restarts it's basic motor functions. this virus uses the human body to feed itself and give it energy. to kill a zombie simply destroy the brain stem and cut off motor function. the virus will simply die. and when trying to slip past zombie hordes chop up zombie guts and act like a zombie. zombies sense you through sight,smell,and sound. so walk slowly, put zombie guts all over yourself, and try to avoid attention.remember to familiarize yourself with throwing knives and all of your basic crossbows,longbows,and other such long range weapons with REUSABLE ammo. If a zombie invasion does happen I will be in a place where the sun never sets. if you want to become part of the re birthing of the human race come find me. I will e waiting

Yes blunt objects could dispatch those Zombies much quicker...a couple of hours a day doing this and you'll pile up the bodies of Zombies.


Michael 4 years ago

Well, in a real life situation, a zombie randomnly breaks through your front door and you still sitting on the couch horrified. Best thing to do: Run in the kitchen and get a friggin' frying pan or something that is blunt to you can easily kill it with one swipe to the head. I never liked Machettes they take to much out of you to be honest, only rely on knives and sharp objects if the zombie has you pinned down trying to bite you, or you can rely on your strength if you are blessed. Best way to kill a zombie up close? Blunt weapons. Knives are back ups. Guns are a so and so for me, I don't want all the zombies in the world coming to the noise of the gun, so guns are emergency uses: Blunt weapons are you primary, guns are your secondary, knives and sharp objects are you worst case senario weaps.

I would run around it and use a machete to slash at its legs until successfully crippled then pour some lighter fluid as the zombie crawls toward me. I light a match and drop it near its head where I concentrated the lighter fluid. Eventually the fire will burn through the skull and kill the zombie.

That would be an ideal weapon as it wouldn't run out of bullets and you can quickly jab them through the brain and kill the zombies at a distance...ideally the Walking Dead comic book explains this method of killing a horde of Zombies through a large metal fence with gaps to poke the stick at the Zombies with a knife on the end.


Bladehero22 profile image

Bladehero22 5 years ago

Yo, waynet. If you could use any weapon against the zombies, what would it be? Mine would be a metal pole covered with blue duct tape. I could use some tools from my garage and duct tape to attach them to the pole and remove the tape when I want to change the desired weapon. And I'll have plenty of duct tape and tools at my disposal. They will probably be hardware tools, gardening tools, or maybe nail guns I could use too. And I'll even use rocks for throwing at them. What about you?


David 5 years ago

Well, her is a small list of weapons i have listed along with my emergency plan: Curtain rod, Spatula, Candle holder, Butcher knife, Rolling pin, Hatchet, Hammer, Pipe wrench, Baseball bat, Ice chipper, Saw blade frisby, Firearms(of course), some sort of wire as a last resort for decapitation, Sword( place to get one, mueseum, Rich family, Rich neighbors...), Machete, Crowbar, and a frying pan. Hope this helps you prepare for your zombie apoc!


L Lawliet 5 years ago

1. 95% of zombies can be killed by decapitation, so aim your improvised, desperate weapon for it's head and neck.

2. Do not slip up! Somebody WILL get killed and the next person to see them will think "Oh. That's my friend. I'll just turn my back on him and OH GOODNESS WHY IS HE EATING MY BRAIN!"

3. Do NOT set them on fire! The only thing worse than undead hordes trying to eat your brains are undead hordes trying to eat your brains WHILE on fire!

EMERGENCY SUPPLIES:

FOOD

WATER

GUN

AMMO

A HECK OF A LOT OF AMMO!

If you want to kill a zombie just shoot it in the head twice because the number 1 rule is double shot.

WHY BURN EM. they can't feel it what would it do except burn the flesh and it wont burn through the skull and sever the brain so there is no point.

but.... if i were to kill a zombie i would just use a very heavy wieght and a very large drop!!!!

You just have to hit them in the head? I got a metal broomstick covered with blue duct tape. I can probably use it to hit plenty of them in their heads. Course I have hammers and knives so I can use them too. But I'd mostly rely on the broomstick.

I must agree with all who dislike the chainsaw, one because they are ridiculously heavy,and two because they are ridiculously noisy. I would stick with my hand pump ten round shotgun if im facing under twenty zombies because im a crack shot. but if im facing more than twenty id have to go with a SCAR.

Ben (zombie hunter) 6 years ago

sorry robertsloan2 but a chainsaw is one of the worst weapons for fighting zombies. here's why:

-They're heavy. A chainsaw can weigh up to, and in excess of ten pounds compared to a two pound machete

-Their fuel supply is finite. Once drained they provide as much protection as a hand held radio

-They're noisy. this noise will attract zombies

if fighting zombies an experienced hunter like myself may recommend a crowbar, trench spike or shaolin spade

if unsure ask yourself:

1. can it crush or decapitate a skull in one blow?

2. is it ligh?

3. is it durable?

Regards Ben


Ben (zombie hunter) 6 years ago

Though not necessarily evil, zombies are creatures that need to be eradicated. Although there are rare exceptions, zombies exhibit no brain function due to necrosis or natural decomposition and therefore cannot feel emotions. much like a virus, they exist only to consume and nothing else.

The exception i was talking about earlier was the 'nzumbe' this is where the word zombie originates. Nzumbe refers to the soul of the deceased and is the proper term for the voodoo zombie(perhaps the case with Xombie). although they may be similar, if you look closer they are different to true zombies:

-They show emotion. they may show anger, sadness or even smile, unlike a true zombie

-they feel pain. they may nurse a wound or even attemt to treat it, but unlike true zombies they wont ignore it

- they recognise fire. though not necessarily afraid of it they will often avoid it, unlike a true zombie

-they arent mindless killers.like a human, unless provoked, they don't show agression

-and they can be reasoned with

Basically if you are sure of a voodoo zombie, don't immediately kill it just let it pass.

if you need more info Max Brooks(a fellow hunter) has written a detailed guide called 'The Zombie Survival Guide'

regards Ben

PS. sorry to be a butthole :(

Thanks Xomby for those common sense words of zombie killing wisdom...you heard it people, zombies are to be respected so chop off their heads with feeling!!!

This hub and the corrolating comments are rather offensive to us enslaved undead. It's not offensive due to the graphic nature by which you would dispose of said zombie (we do not fear death, we long for it), but rather because since death eludes us it dredges up feelings of isolated desperation. Loneliness is our only friend, and our Bokor will not allow us redemption. I therefore implore you, when killing your next zombie, do so with compassion and dignity because though we are not to be considered human, we were at one time. Sleep is wasted on the living.

Yep that'll do it Bill, ground them into dust and make them into glue sticks and market them in a cool way, could be quite lucrative!

Light sabers would be cool if they actually had them, I'd be happily killing zombies with them all day and it would be great if as soon as you strike them down they just dissappear like obi wan kenobi after darth vader whacked him with a light saber!!

Oh yes I liked that game...! killing zombies could turn into an actual olympic event!!

lol, great hub, I ran a poll on another site to determine the best weapon for zombie slaying and the most popular choice was a 'light-saber', not sure where you'd find one in the event of a zombie outbreak though.

Not sure if you've played 'Left 4 Dead', but that's a great game for a bit of zombie slaying madness. =)

Thanks Val

Current classics you have there and I call myself a horror film buff, especially the helicopter rotor blades slicing up some zombies or rage infected nutters, but the vinyl LP's and the winchester I should have remembered(but don't mention the Z word!)

Script for a zombie project?

Yeah Chainsaws, how could I forget this, or even a lawn mower from that classicly funny movie Braindead(loved that film!) oh yeah Return of the living dead was the main films for body parts that wouldn't die. cheers Robert for the chainsaws, can't believe I forgot that one!!

I think it's rather happily ironic that you would post this the day I got a script for a zombie project approved. There are a couple anti-zombie weapons you forgot, however. Helicopter rotors and vinyl LP's have proven effective against zombies. As for guns, well the best to take them out would of course be a... Winchester!

ROFLMAO!!! Love it. You forgot the ultimate classic though. Chainsaws are great against zombies, albeit leaving messy stinking rot splashing everywhere. Watch out for the kind where the pieces keep going after dismemberment too.

Yes we gotta prepare for zombie invasion and they'll have such reality show classics of their own like "I'm a zombie get me out of here" and "Zombies Kitchen"

We have to end this when the time comes...zombies bah! we know how to stop you!
