In the Philippines, there is a young Filipino who leads one of the most powerful ngos in the world, with millions of members, and have ties with leftists, socialists, muslims, and catholics, politicians and military personnel. Aside from the fact that two Filipinos students have created the Iloveyouvirus, this ngo and its leader have created some of the most powerful ciphers in the world: many of which were mentally calculated and which processes cannot be recorded even by the most advanced drones and surveillance systems in the world. This young leader has also undermined the doctrine of MAD (Mutually Assured Destruction), and has pointed out, not only that the United States and its allies would be outnumbered by its enemies, but Russian and Chinese EMP weapons technology have also surpassed that of the US. The young Filipino has repeated warned his fellows of the potency of Russian jamming technology, such that NATO would look like a mere insect. Furthermore, not only has the US has been plunged in a debt of over 19 trillion dollars, but its politicians also worry that its nuclear deterrent is behind that of its enemies.
There is no valid reason for the US allies to continue in their dependence and “trust” in the United States. Remember the Turkey Coup Plot and the Brexit results. The NGOs can unite even against the most powerful nations in the world. There is no reason to believe in American propaganda. The Arabs reportedly own over 14 trillion dollars worth of assets, and it would be easy for them to unite with pro-Muslim and pro-socialist NGOs…even to declare war against a superpower, if necessary. The young Filipino has estimated, that a budget of 5 trillion dollars would be enough to create a military power, more than two times as potent as that of the United States.

I want to know as much information as possible about UK police and the law (especially recent changes) regarding their possession of weapons. As in, walking about on the street on a regular patrol, carrying guns.

Is this actually getting more common? Any evidence (or links to decent sources) would be GREAT,
also: what the fuck is the psycological effect on the police, the individual officers, when given such things? AND any information on --- WHERE THE GUNS ARE BOUGHT FROM (of course someone profits from the purchase; weapons companies etc).

I know I could find this out myself in the process of doing so but any pointers in interesting directions would be fantastic, cheers.

Just went through my first play-through today and holy flying fuck is this the most realistic survival game I've ever played.

Day 1: Woke up beside my partner, he didn't survive the night. Recover some antibiotics and his knife. Followed the right-side path, eventually stumbling upon a lake side cabin, finding some food stores inside, bed-rolls, and ammo. Continue traveling along the lake until I find a camping center. Find more food, a fishing tackle, ammo, and instructive book on dress/skinning techniques.

Day 2: Discover that the lake is full of fishing shacks and cabins; loot some of them for more food, a fishing manual/tackle, and more ammo... all this ammo but no sign of a rifle, shame.

Day 4: Food stores are getting low, decide to explore. Follow some train-tracks to some wrecked cars, find some ammo and a hatchet, but alas no food. The winds pick up forcing me back to the center to recover. I still need food so I head towards a fishing shack, break the Ice, light a fire, and try my luck. I catch a couple fish but while I was fishing the fire went out without me noticing, and a blizzard has reduced viability to almost zero. Freezing and disoriented, I am luckily able to find my way back to the center. At least the fish will hold me over for tonight.

Day 6: Made my first real mistake. Fishing provides barley enough meat to survive, if something goes wrong I will starve. Decide to fish for as long as I can. Stopping two hours before sunset was not enough time to get back. Not wanting to waste a flare. I am forced to put down a bed-roll and make camp in the fishing shack, barley surviving the cold.

Day 7: I make a decision, I can barley survive on fish or I can try and find a rifle somewhere. I can't make a bow without animal resources, and there are no carcases to scavenge, so I decide to follow the train-tracks for as long as I can. I encounter a wolf who begins stalking me. I am forced off the tracks and into a clear-cut. The wolf begins to get unsettlingly close and I resort to using my flare to ward it off. I find myself by a lumber-camp. I explore the trailers and find enough food to last the day, two flares and some more ammo, but alas no rifle.

Day 8: Leave the camp to explore the rest of the clear cut. Round a hill I spy a fire-watch cabin, but can't see any means passed the sheer cliffs it's perched upon. Making my way round the cliffs I'm attacked by a wolf, luckily I have bandages and antibiotics to patch myself up. I eventually find a way to the cabin, which is dismally barren. I find only a single granola bar, and most frustratingly, an empty gun rack.

Day 9: I have no food. I make my way through a valley round the cliffs, but there is nothing. I see crows circling overhead and decide to investigate. I find a deer carcass, and am able to extract some meat, hide and innards. it is late in the day, and I am exhausted, I am forced to use an emergency-stim to get back to the cabin. I barley make it into the bed, and am forced to consume my freshly acquired meat.

It's a nice thought but the reality is most fighter jets are outfitted to carry and drop nukes, most submarines are fully primed and ready to go (and testing using real nukes has happened), most launchers, especially in Russia are MAV mounted, even if these mass-systems were nothing but bluffs, the reality is there's dozens of options for weapon systems capable of delivering a nuke to a target.

Have you seen a godzilla movie? Hes stupidly tough. He takes on tanks, small arms fire, bunker busters, bombing runs, battleships, attack helicopters, lasers, bigger monsters and even fucking low-mid yeild nukes and does it all at the same time.
On the other hand, with the zombies, all they have is numbers. And yeah, it seems bleak but look at the battle of Mogadishu. About a hundred and a half US troops, plus air support, against what was really an entire city. Lets pretend the city was a zombie infected one. So we'll say every wounded US soldier was infected(bitten, not shot obviously). So about a hundred infected troops. But at the end of the day, the army, even without the strategic bombing or artillery or armor support or any of the other stuff we would undoubtably use if it were zombies, still racked up about 1,750 kills. Granted, zombies are physically tougher than people, but they also dont have guns like the militia did.
Plus these days we have more technology and expeirience fighting urban wars that would def help.

Actually zombies aren't more physically tougher than people, for the simple reason that a zombie has no sense of self-preservation.

Picture the typical post-apocalyptic zombie-flick street.

Lots of burned out cars, broken glass, etc. Can you guess what happens when a horde of zombies funnels through that street? They get burned, they cut themselves open on metal shrapnel, they tear apart their feet on glass.
They don't feel pain. They cannot think "Hey walking past this sharp metal hook is going to tear my innards out!". They just walk, until there's nothing left.

You can defend against an entire horde of zombies with some caltrops and barbwire. The zombies will just kill themselves by ripping themselves apart on the environment.

Godzilla because we collectively have a better chance of surviving. Zombies spread, there is only one Godzilla. Zombies would completely destroy whole government's ability to function very quickly, while Godzilla is isolated in city. Meaning its only a matter of time before military shows up and kills Godzilla. So it would be a matter of surviving until Godzilla is kill.

Godzilla would also be way more exciting than zombies. Imagine a massive reptile dude knocking down skyscrapers and shit. On the other hand, I wouldn't get to shoot my gun which is gay.

So what's your best, or favored survival weapon? If shit hits the fan, what will you keep by your side at all times, relying on it to save your ass?

It could be a gun, a blade, something blunt, maybe even think outside the box here. Perhaps it's your car. The point is to pick one thing which you would choose first as a weapon to survive an apocalypse.

Now just to clarify, this is a total SHTF apocalypse. There are zombies, thermonuclear blast sites, biological weapons released, natural disasters, fucking total anarchy everywhere. Things like bullets might be in short supply unless you've got your own personal ammo dump. Forget about raiding a nearby military base, it's almost definitely either heavily fortified and in use already or completely annihilated. You might have some luck in private shops or homes, but ammunition is going to be a bit scarce, especially since in such a world it will become so valuable.

Gas stations won't be up and running for the most part. You may have to find other means of transportation. Think about how this impacts the type of weapon you select. Things like weight, conspicuousness, extra moving parts that need to be carried are all important factors.

Think about concealment. Or alternatively, intimidation. Would you do better hiding the fact that you're armed? Or would walking through a town lugging a fully automatic machine gun speak more to your style?

Think about alternative uses for your weapon. What else can it be used for? Could you chop things with it? Dig perhaps? There's a lot to consider and you only get to pick one.

My choice? A khukri. I'm not saying it's everyone's best choice but it works for me. I prefer being sneaky, inconspicuous, quiet and not having to rely on scavenging for ammunition on top of food and other supplies means more time saved. Sure it's not nearly as reassuring as a rifle, but so long as I stick to the shadows and keep my head down I'll be fine.

I'm not very strong and am somewhat short, the khukri's design capitalizes on the laws of physics, giving you a lot of slicing power for very little kinetic input. A swift flick of the wrist and someone loses an arm. Or a head. Gunshots are loud, they attract attention and can be difficult to direct in a crazy situation if you don't have prior training. Sure you might have gone to the shooting range every weekend for ten years but are you sure you won't piss yourself and freeze up as an undead horror comes screeching at you full speed, mutated face pustules throbbing, fangs eager to eat your flesh? Now in that scenario you might be saying "well fuck, I'd rather have a gun than have to get anywhere close to something like that" and I would say you're probably right. However, there's just something primal about holding a big blade in your hand. It feels right and in a fight or flight response, the first instinct is sometimes to swing violently at your target. With a blade, that will work just fine.

My crossbow. I can always rely on it. And i don't need any kind of special ammo. Just a sharp thing.

Hey, a Barman's Comb, the less famous cousin of the nailbat. Never actually seen one before.

Careful yo. Waraxes ~can~ be used to chop wood, bone, and plantfibers, but they're designed to chop into flesh.

As in, just cutting into flesh superficially. They're not designed to lop right through heavy organic substances, because the blade is so thin. You can chop through strong organic substances, but you run the risk of damaging your blade. You're probably better off with a waraxe, and an actual tool axe.

There are hybrid war-tool axe designs, like the axes that Roman logistics soldiers used, but those are really just lesser quality tool axes that can be swung around enough to give you some level of personal defense when ambushed by some celts hiding in the trees. They're not true battlefield weapons.

Right now I think I have my bases covered, for the most part. I have a Taurus Old model 66 357 magnum, a Marlin 336 in 30-30, and a Stevens 320. These three guns have me covered on defense and food procurement. I also have a compound bow that I use for fishing and small game. If needed, I can raise the weight up to about 75 for elk.

This is looking like a lot of fun, from the playthroughs I've seen.
Like GTA meets Fallout. Worth it for the scenery gorn alone IMO, the dust storms really make it feel like the movie, and the playable areas are bordered with incredible cloud-bottomed chasms that make me think of The Dark Tower and The Night Land.
