zombie apocalypse! how screwed are you!?

General Discussion
The last ability, or weapon you used in the last video game you played, is all you have..

How screwed are you?
One does not talk about zombie apocalypse without first stating the nature of the outbreak, viral or supernatural. There are key differences.
4 rifles 2 shot guns 2 pistols 500-1000 bullets. Rural housing with a stocked pond and plenty of wild life to hunt. I am much less screwed than most.

The earth opened up under the ocean, a toxic gas released reanimated the dead cells, plants, and sea creatures, who inturn infected the living... It was brought ashore by a surfer in Cali who cut his foot on a protruding clam shell, allowing the virus to enter his body..

He was rushed to the ER after being seen by a beach medic and many other beach going people who in an attempt to stop the bleeding happened to contract the virus themselves... the rest... is history, you are now left with the last weapon or abilty you used in a video game... How screwed are you?
Thank god, I played fallout 1 and threw a plasma grenade.

Hmm... Actually I might not go far with one grenade. Woopsie !
Does Fus Ro Dah count as a weapon?

If I can kill stuff by shouting, then I'd say I'm pretty well set.

Why is "Official" capitalized?

What about "Representative"? is "Blizzard Representative" a job title or something?

Just curious. You try to seem so professional but have elementary mistakes in your signature.

This has nothing to do with the Zombies we face!! There is no time for chit chat or symantics!!
i have a springfield scoped sniper rifle, and i just cleared Berlin of zombies.
Well, I do have a nice 1350DPS 2OS Manticore (175lb draw weight with red dot) and plenty of bolts. But I'll only use that if I need to be quiet or conserve ammo ;)
Last thing I used was a Massive shotgun blasting type Cluster Arrow which then exploded into 4 grenades.

Pretty sure I'll be fine.
I can drop 17 bomb at a time with infinite ammo, i can kick them aiming zombies, and their AoE is 8 squares.

Yeah just played some bomberman...
Instagib energy rifle with infinite ammo and the ability to bounce around like a jackrabbit on speed. I think I'd be fine.

In that case I think we're all screwed regardless of the weapons we have since pretty much everything will become zombified or die due to lack of food/water. Ignoring that however, I had a suit that could ward off most bullets and melee attacks, an assortment of gadgets to escape from most situations/stun/freeze/decapitate enemies as well as magical sword that can cur through pretty much anything (a certain batman game).
I'm not sure it matters what weapons most people have. Most gamers (not all, I'm sure there are some with skill) "in game" skills wouldn't translate to the real world. Sure, you might have a chainsaw, a sniper rifle, some plasma grenades and even a fighter jet, but how many of them can you use accurately?

That being said, I'm safely holed up in my magical shop of random crud - I was just playing Recettear.
the druid spell "fussure" from D2. im set.
I built a High School in SimCity 4. I'm boned!!

If movies have taught me anything, it's that a High School is not at all a safe hiding spot during a zombie apocalypse. Heck, it might even start there ;)

It's right across the street from the Cemetery, too =(
Well, I just defeated the Ebony Warrior on Skyrim about 2 hrs ago. soo.. GL Zombies.

The last ability I used was a projectile aimed at my girlfriend. I think zombies might be immune to it...
