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

UPDATE:
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 Newgrounds.com 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.

Always get a Z+ and some questions are wrong...

Zombie Memory: In Night of the Living Dead, 28 weeks later, as well as probably many other movies, there's been scientists researching zombies in those movies, showing that zombies retain basic memory function over time. In fact, Land of the Dead was purely based around zombies retaining their very basic memories of past life.

What a zombie does when it sees someone: In Dawn of the Dead, the zombies ran after other humans. They didn't just sit there and moan.

Zombies DO need food: In 28 weeks later, the basis for the movie was that all the zombies had apparently died out from starvation.

The question about walking being the best method of transportation: Walking or riding a bike doesn't offer much in the way of protection against zombies. A motorcycle could maneuver and ride on off-road trails easily. Trucks could also drive off-road and be very useful for transporting supplies, people, and offering protection.
If you walked to another destination:
1 - You'd get tried and wouldn't be able to get far in a day.
2 - You'd always be looking for supplies from local areas.
3 - You'd always be approached by zombies, so your ammunition would run out very fast.
So, sorry, walking isn't the best option.

...So, yeah, I got an F on zombie experience and still managed to somehow get a Z+. Nice quiz, but change around a few questions and the Z+ thing (cause I know it's probably a glitch that I got a Z+ overall, after receiving an F for experience).

a fun quiz

its kind of tough because different movies/books/games have their own spin on zombies, so you can't get too crazy with specifics. However, there are some universal things you touched upon, like knowledge of firearms and stuff.

It was good but some things will get you killed

alot of this was good if you are in the middle of a zombie attack but some of these things will get you killed like hidding in a school. Schools are design to let large groups in and out have several entrances and many windows, honestly either getting to the roof or take your chances outside at lest those two don't increase your chances of close quarters fight. Also knocking on a room to check if zombies are in there is even stupider the best would be to try and check carefully with out alerting them at lest that increases your chance to get them from behind if your lucky the other way you better be good at shooting on the run. For the guy bellow me if you want to test your thory of zombies can't run be my guest if am wrong I'll still live if your wrong well then you can know for yourself how fast they can run. lol
