A lot of people talk about how they would totally survive a zombie outbreak, so now's your chance to get an idea of how well you'd do: are you a zombie hunter or a walking steak?

There are 52 questions, each with an answer and explanation at the end of the quiz, as well as a comprehensive breakdown of your stats, ranging from physical condition to emotional state.

Hope you all enjoy and that there aren't too many typos. :P

Thanks everyone for the praise and criticism! I appreciate that you're enjoying yourself with my little quiz and that your analytical eyes aren't rusty.
My first award! Daily Second Place! Thanks everybody!
Zombie Survival Quiz broke the 4.0 mark! WHOO!
ZSQ has made the front page! Thanks!
I fixed the preloader...not sure why I didn't do it earlier...

On a more distressing note, I'd like to formally say that I do not want this flash game to be hosted on any site other than without my permission, please. Thank you.

Development on v2 of Zombie Survival Quiz is underway. The things I'm planning on adding/improving will blow this one out of the water.

A few of the gripes people had======================

"X" is wrong or dumb.
I can't discuss every little problem you may have had, but I can ask you to read the explanation's if you haven't already. Stop sending me messages please.

Your model of a zombie is wrong.
I chose a specific zombie "lore" that seemed most logical to me and had a broad and reasonably accurate base of fiction and information sources (such as The Zombie Survival Guide and World War Z). If I tried to cover all the bases, I'd end up with a 500 question quiz that is wishy-washy between different "styles" of zombies, making it very confusing and muddled.

not bad, but grendade is not effective??
grenade can blow all living being..
shotgun, only if you think you can shot them in medium range, shotgun helps too, shotgun's high power can blow zombies head or hold them back for a second.
I think even you said mall is the worst option, but Mall can be a good place, you can find alot of stuff you need and you can craft it into a deadly weapon, for example, hair spray with matches can be a deadly flame thrower. or if you burn the hairs spray it can be an instant explosive.

''Your knowledge, strength, and will to survive are unstoppable. It would take a nuclear holocaust to remove you from the face of earth. Zombies don't stand a chance.'' A very fun quiz.

Okay okay horse's are terrible modes of transportation, easily spooked creatures and well how on earth are you going to defend it or keep it safe, and in a tight spot the last thing you want is a horse whining. And zombies vaguely remember there past but there insatiable hunger makes them ignore simple past life habits. and how do you know if zombies moan or not? lol, or either if they will run or walk. Oh and the vehicle question, you need something as spacious as a lorry for extra passenger's (And for running over loose undead for kicks) and if your paths blocked have the hindesight of placing a bicycle or motorcycle in the back of your lorry.

Other than those flaw's in zombie knowledge :P it's a nice quiz with a nice layout, thank's for extra knowledge :P

Amusing little quiz!

It's about time other people started taking this whole "zombie" thing seriously! I do have issues with some of the questions though, particularly about weapons. A shotgun is way better then a rifle, because unless you plan to needlessly waste ammo picking away at zombies from a rooftop, you only need to concern yourself with close/medium range encounters. Additionally, assault rifles would be a better choice for reliability and accuracy. I'd prefer the more powerful AK-47, as an M-16 or M4 carbine lack power in the 5.56 config. Generally, military grade Assault rifles made today come in semi or burst mode, no auto. It is highly inaacurate.
You're crazy to consider a Grenade ineffective against a group of anything. The concussive force would eliminate any soft targets in a radius of 10 ft, and shrapnel is only a consideration at 15-50 ft.
On a final note, a Military base, if within 10 miles, is your best choice for safety and survival. I am in the military, and although my commander had me "escorted" out of his office when I asked about our "Zombie Plan", I had the distinct feeling from his tone that we wouldn't be letting just anyone in, so maybe "Home" is the best choice (for all you civilian suckas'!).

secv responds:

The whole weapon thing is subjective, much like many other questions. It depends on where you live which weapon you'd choose. Out in the country, a rifle would be best, maybe even one with a telescopic sight. In a metropolis, you may want a submachine gun. Although in that case, you should probably leave the city.

As for a grenade's concussive force, I don't think there are any non-viscose liquids in the zombie body as all of them congealed. According to my sources, this wouldn't allow the pressure wave to harm the brain. I've never hit a zombie with a grenade, and neither have you, so I just went with the information provided to me.
