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.
<A> 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.
<A>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.

overall good quiz

I passed?

Well, I think the rating system needs a bit of work, as I pretty much failed most of the parts, got only a C on physical/mental, D on experience, but I did get an F on emotional rating. And this gives me a Z+? I would think that for zombies to "not stand a chance", I would have to have gotten at least a B on all parts besides emotional! Apart from that, an interesting quiz, and yeah, hard to cover all the zombie lore.

For the most part well-thought-out but I have to MASSIVELY disagree with you in your statement that an Axe is more useful then a Katana. While you are correct in that society deems an Axe a tool and therefore it retains some practical purposes, you forget that a Katanna's attack range MASSIVELY outclasses an Axe's. To slay zombies with an Axe you'd need to be within just-over arm's reach of the zombie, which puts you at a high risk of a bite. Furthermore, the Axe's blade (compared to the Katanna's) is quite small and therefore the attack range is lacking. There is also the high-risk of the axe becomming jammed in a Zombie's body. A well-built Katanna, on the other hand, allows you to not only fight zombies from a much-safer range (possibly 4-6 feet VS the Axe's 3-4), but the blade is much wider. This greatly lowers the chance of missing or landing an ineffective blow. Furthermore, a Katanna is built to cleanly slice through a LIVING human body, making it the ideal CQC weapon against the less-durable rotting flesh of the Zombie. Even if you missed the head, a strong-armed individual would easily slice through the Zombie's torso or limbs, leaving it inert for a finishing blow to the head. And finally, the Axe is effective against a single Zombie, where as someone with good upper-body strength could use the Katanna against many. Yes the Axe has practical uses, but the Katanna could easily be useful itself if used in some non-standard ways. The Axe simply cannot come anywhere near compensating for a Katanna. Please change that answer, thank you.

Axe or Katana?

I would have to go with the Katana, your explanation nonwithstanding. An axe is much harder to handle, requires more strength, is shorter ranged and can easily get stuck inside an enemy. It does allow you to chop trees and wooden obstructions, and that could prove useful in some very specific situations.

Is everyone getting Z+ no matter answers and scores?
