    The Next Tier of Weapon

    U.S. Army Unveils 'Revolutionary' XM25 Rifle in Afghanistan - FoxNews.com

    Lehner said the first XM25s were distributed to combat units in Afghanistan this month. The 12-pound, 29-inch system, which was designed by Minnesota's Alliant Techsystems, costs up to $35,000 per unit and, while highly sophisticated, is so easy to use that soldiers become proficient within minutes.
    "That's how intuitively easy it is, even though it's high-tech," Lehner said. "All a soldier needs to know how to do is laze the target. It decimates anything within its lethal radius."
    Once the trigger is pulled and the round leaves the barrel, a computer chip inside the projectile communicates exactly how far it has traveled, allowing for precise detonation behind or ahead of any target.
    This will be good for use against zombies if you can get past the sticker shock.

    Horrible zombie weapon. You need ammunition that is readily available.

    Who needs ammo when you've got one of these?

    The hillbilly on The Walking Dead has the right idea. A crossbow. The ammo is reusable if you don't mind pulling arrows out of dead zombie heads.

    "Dead zombie heads" ???? Aren't zombies dead by definition?

    Fine. Redead zombie heads. Happy?

    Also, yes a crossbow is a great weapon, IMO with reusuable ammo, and I suppose the potential to even make your own ammo easily, no? You could perhaps jury rig some rebar bolts ala Half Life 2?

    You are forgetting the most beneficial part, little sound.

    Re: The Next Tier of Weapon

    Why are you all kidding yourselves? This is a great antizombie weapon. I'm guessing if you can afford the gun itself, you could also afford a stockpile of ammo for it.

    Also, anyone who tells you that the best way to deal with zombies is to take your time to aim and hit each of the zombies' heads is either stupid, or is hoarding explosive ammunition for themselves at your expense. While it is true that (most) mines and mechanized forces (planes, tanks, etc) are horrible anti-zombie weapons, this does not apply to this weapon. When zombies are attacking en masse, you aren't going to have time to take them out one at a time , even if you do manage to force them into some sort of a funnel.

    No, the best method is to take out an entire group at a time. How is this done, you may ask? I have one word for you. Shrapnel. If this works as advertised, it gives human forces the ability to create head level explosions at nearly any distance. Now instead of just one little bullet hitting one zombie, you have hundreds of pieces of metal hitting a whole group of zombies, allowing you to take down groups at the same rate that you used to take down individual flesh-eaters.

    While the go to weapons for an individual on the run, or on building clearing duty, is and should always be the shotgun and the trusty lobo, this is a game changer when it comes to large scale engagements and defensive battles.

    Re: The Next Tier of Weapon

    Zombies come in Packs and don't try to hide. They just walk at you with there hand straight out (depending on the zombie movie). They can be killed with records. I would rather have an m16 for zombie killing. Hell Tallahassee thought he earned himself Zombie Killer of the week with a baseball bat and a few other simple items.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.
