I have done a post before talking about which melee was better, Blunt vs. Blade so far blade is winning by one vote. Now we bring you The Top Five Melee Weapons for The Zombie Apocalypse, from worst to best.
5. Sludge Hammer
The sludge hammer is my worst pick, because it is heavy and impractical when traversing large distances, which you will probably be doing most of the time. Also, it will be too slow to attack several zombies at the same time. But if you have nothing else, go for it.
4. Metal Baseball Bat
At first this may seem like the best solution, it’s easy to come by and decently effective. It will probably dent or break after multiple zombies. Still not the worst option though.
Hatchets are good, they can be used as a blade or a blunt. They can be used to chop wood and pound in nails. The downside to this tool, is the reach, it is very limited. However, it is still worthy of the top three spot because of the multiple uses and for its great use for indoors.
2. A Pike
The obvious downside to this weapon is the when in use indoors and close spaces. Many pike can be made out of home materials. Such as a broom handle or a pipe. For the end use an ice pick, knife or other such things. Take your handle and duct tape your head to it. The better materials the better your weapon will be. Only use if you have quality materials on hand.
1. A Machete
At about 15 to 21 inches, this takes both lengths and adds into a good middle ranged weapon. And to add that they are very common, this makes it my number one pick. However, be wary when buying a machete. Do your research before picking one up.
