I agree. Something sharp is definitely the answer. It allows for quiet defense. Stealth is critical in these zombie times... A lock-picking kit would definitely come in handy as well. You could bunker down almost anywhere.
A bite proof Haz Mat suit and some kind of lightweight belt fed weapon and a tank, and a flame thrower and I want the suit to be able to fly so if things get too scary, I can just fly over their heads and regroup.
Depends on what's causing the outbreak. Is it a viral or bacterial infection? Hazmat suit. A necromancer? A "Turn Undead" spell or charm. A parasite? Water purification system or other way to protect myself from infiltration.
If a zombie apocalypse happened, where would you want to set up your defense?I would chose either Cabelas or another large sporting goods store. Due to their weapon stocks as well as food rations and water.
