I just realized why fast zombies are real fucking scary.

Because they’re humans 2.0!

The thing humans have always had an advantage over other animals, is endurance. We can (could atleast) outwalk any animal, they’d collapse of exhaustion or overheat. We? We’d just stroll up and use our superior weapons (pointy stick). That’s how we survived and evolved into the most fearsome aggressive cancer apex predator this planet has ever seen.

Enter the fast zombie, we aint got shit on those. They literally never tire, they don’t need to piss, shit or sleep. That’s why they’re so goddamn scary. Walking zombies? Eh, we’ll just powerwalk until they can’t see us. Running zombies? Oh shit, we ded.

But consider this. A Zombie's primary food source is also it's most robust predator. Every time a zombie needs to eat, it needs to go toe to toe with a smarter more well armed version of itself. Fast zombies still can't out run a bullet or an armoured vehicle equipped with an improvised 200bhp flail.

Oh yeah, honestly I think we’d kill the zombos pretty quick. Sure, some cities may fall but most will prevail. Most of the zombie movies/series are riddled with idiots and lack any sort of critical thinking. Even here where guns aren’t as plentiful, we’d just mow em down one way or other.

One thing though, a zombie rarely needs to eat, they don't really starve. They just have a primal urge. Then there’s the whole thing if zombies eat flesh or brains.


Oh and the contagion, is it by blood, air or bite?

Fast running zombies are scary because they can quickly kill us. We need to be very cautious to avoid being killed by them. It's survival.

@YogurtExplosion thats why I’ve never really gotten the “oh noo, zombies shuffling towards! We better run and trip over nothing” , the initial spread and people infecting others in tight spaces I get, but after that? Traps, powerwalking, bicycling, long pointysticks, they wouldn’t be a problem for long.

My view might also be skewed as we’re a hermit nation, so a big herd here would be like..10people. Also our country is about ~80% forest so they’d just get lost and die.

That's why you always double tap, especially going for the knees. That way they're not so fast any more. Running zombies is terrifying. Fast crawling zombies, I can handle.

Could you imagine a fast ass crawler?! I'd fucking die. My need for observations would get me killed. I'd be the dumbass that tripped over something trying to look at it and not where I'm going.
