Zombie Survival Quiz

Author Comments

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 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.
<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.

Great quiz

The horse one was kind of weird. I had horses but I am not a great rider. I did work with wild colts though. That would give some positive effect on me.
The other thing is the military base one. Some people live on bases and in fact I have lived on a deactivated military base.
Still, pretty good.

This is so oddly specific... are you ok secv??? have you been in a zombie apocalypse???
Amazing quiz though. Lots of fun!

Z+ AND I LOVED IT! It was funny too! P.S. If you are reading this but about to go to another game... DO THIS FIRST!

This quiz is the most ridiculous one yet.

Q1 and Q2: If none of these answers mattered why did you bother asking it then?

Q4: Okay what? You don't need to be a cross-country runner to outrun zombies. The best answer would be having two legs and some agility

Q16: I don't see how this relates? You're asking me how much I eat at an all-you-can-eat-buffet (of course I'm going to eat all I can) compared to a survival situation where I need to conserve food? The best choice would be an MRE(Meal ready to eat) Just eating one is enough for a whole day.

Q17: Ah, the old "You don't know how to shoot or kill therefore you will not survive"statement. First of all this doesn't subtract your chances of surviving just because you don't know how to shoot. Picking something you can handle is much better than a gun. Especially since bullets run out.

Q19: Ignores the fact that there will be a flood of refugees from the city going into rural communities for safety.

Q20: The "correct' answer is all of them. Using any of these tools help you fight off a zombie. A hammer is literally one of the most important tools in building and construction you can smash a zombies head in with it. So I have no idea where you get this "least useful' from.

Q25: You sure? I'm pretty sure a big strong survivor who is 'practically a bear in human form' would have literally no issue carrying or someone with medical knowledge would have no issue healing them. "leaving them" isnt the best answer, you're asking to die alone doing this lowers your chances of surviving due to the fact you're leaving your friends for dead.

Q26: Sure walking doesn't require gas, but you know what walking does require? Stamina. Which I can promise you will run out alot faster than gasoline. If I'm traveling to another city I can promise you, you won't be walking.

Q28: sigh, again the best answer is "what are you skilled in?" If someone has no experience shooting guns , a rifle is pretty much no good when you're in close range a rifle isnt 'the best' a handgun with 9mm calibers are. 9mm is the most common ammo you will find. The best answer is to use what you're skilled in. Don't use a damn gun if you can't use it. Use a blade or something you're comfortable with.

Q29: This is a pretty extreme question. Now first of all in order to use any explosive device it requires a blasting cap and a detonator. You can't make a blasting cap. The best you can use is IEDs which is hardly effective against obstructions and is used for maiming. It also makes very loud noise which attracts more zombies.

Q31: What? Have you ever stabbed anything with a teethed knife? Anything at all? I have stabbed and sawed trees with a teethed knife it never gets stuck.

First of all stabbing zombies is useless.

Second of all ITS ROTTEN FLESH! it will hardly get stuck inside you can literally curb stomp their skulls and you will remove the head.

This is just a silly question with a silly answer.

Q34: I believe the 'best answer' (so you said) for transportation was walking because it didn't require fuel? You don't need "experience' to ride a horse it's not a car. You just need a trusting relationship with the animal when the horse trusts you on his back he wont get easily as frightened.

Also horses require FOOD they require TRAINING they require WATER. That YOU will have to end up sharing with. A horse who is small and weak will not have alot of stamina.

Q35: It will also alert other survivors inside who can prepare to ambush you, the 'best' option would be peeking inside through a window or under the door with a scope.

Q36: Then why do you keep insisting we USE WEAPONS?! A revolver runs out of ammo YES...Yes it does. Why do you keep insisting we use weapons? Knives have short reach but so does a zombie when he's wrestling you to the ground.

Again as I've argued the BEST choice is to use what YOU are comfortable in. You also ignored that axes are long and heavy.

Q37: Why would I want to shoot a zombie from a distance? He's no threat and it's a waste of ammo when someone doesn't have good training with a rifle.

Q39: "Gated mall stores will not withstand a large group of zombies" I'm sorry I just had to laugh at this. A gated mall uses their gates and walls made out of metal, steel, sometimes rocks. I can't imagine rotten corpses being able to break through that.

As for the school: You left out "windows" which can easily be broken in.

Q44: "Zombies do not run" Again this begs the question on why I need to be a cross-country runner?

Q47: How about the flu? How about the cold? I'm not afraid of the zombie infection, I'm afraid of the flu virus and many other nasty sicknesses.

Q51: That's pistols. Which you have argued is completely useless and used by professionals only.

Q52: Grenades are not useful against zombies? Grenades are explosives which you stated on Q29 that learning to make explosives is a great way to fight off zombies, now you're saying they're not? (Grenade is a type of explosives fyi) You also said "If it hits the brains" I don't see how that's any different from explosives 'if it hits the brains'

Welp this quiz was ridiculous. 2 stars.

Have a good day.
