Obviously, we’re in love with our guns. They’re among the most important tools to have during the zombie apocalypse, and could very well save your survival party. But what happens when you’re out of ammo, or when you’re faced with a catastrophic malfunction?
Time to get creative. When your gun can’t cut it, time to improvise. There are an infinite number of ways to kill zombies, but we’ve rounded up nine of our favorite ways, some inspired by our favorite zombie movies—er, documentaries—and some the products of our own twisted imaginations.
- Zombie documentarian Greg Rodriguez included some of the most imaginative zombie kills of all time in his 2007 film Planet Terror, a good deal of them coming courtesy of the movie’s star, Cherry, whose leg is replaced by a Bushmaster Carbine with a mounted KAC M203A1. Suddenly, an old women’s self-defense tactic becomes an explosive zombie-killing technique. Eat your heart out, Gramatica. We’re not recommending you saw your leg off in lieu of a sweet rifle limb, but if worst comes to worst, then by all means, get yourself some Gatling gams.
