A virus killed almost all of humanity. You are one of the 1/10000 survivor. No trace of virus left.
post your results.
i'm going canadian style.
It has a built in suppressor
That's why the fucking barrel looks like a suppressor
My face most definitely feels like fuck
Here's mine. Most food can be hunted for / looted for, and I plan on sleeping in houses that I come across.
None of you seem to understand the gravity of this situation

ITT: Shit you actually own edition
I'm on the Special Riot Team or SRT with my local sheriff's office and this is about my loadout every time with modification's. Modification's include an Assault Rifle, MRE's (Which we do have but I am a combat medic and don't get issued these) and a sleeping bag, Other than that everything else I carry on me or in my car daily.
all third world countries are mostly destroyed by the virus, everywhere else is decimated. most people that survived are fit white master race. 57 square miles of land to a person. no overpopulation and no industry to pollute the earth? sounds like a fucking utopia to me.
>doesn't have a hat with a brim capable of protecting your head and neck from the sun
i don't think you've ever been to arizona and if you have you've never had to work a day outside
>ITT: Shit you actually own edition
Well then I'm fucked.
Clothes, shelter, water, tools, medication, fire, stuff.
Barely any food. Because if you can't manage to hunt and/or forage for food, any stock you got will deplete anyway.
No military grade weapony. Because where the fuck am I going to get some when apocalypse hits. I mean, get real.
And if you really need firearms, it means that these bullets will run out the same way as food.
And toothbrush. Because when your teeth start to decay and fall, you're pretty much fucked.
Gotta second that.
Even if in Northern America and Europe you might have densest packs of survivors in the old metropolis or urban areas you can get away pretty easily.
>all the kids packing flak jackets/vests
seriously, it's not a vidya game, it does not give you some free armor or extra HP. It's heavy and bulky and is only designed to prevent light shrapnel and smaller caliber bullets from instantaneously killing you.
It will not stop bullets to your arms/legs, it will not prevent you from falling on the ground with broken ribs and passing out, it will not save you from someone stabbing you in your sleep and dozen of other situations.
Unless you operate with a team and plan on taking light fire the cost of opportunity is way to high in general and ridiculous in said scenario.
Here is my hunter setup
>various means of making fire
>iodine drops and canteens to boil water in
>basic tools, rope and duct tape for survival and building my den
>some calorie dense food for early survival until I can make enough of my own food
>hunter shotgun with shitload of ammo as I won't be able to scavenge a lot, silenced gun does not have as much as it's just for emmergency cases. I coud probably drop it actually
>needle can be bent with multitool to be used as fishing line if the waters near my camp are fishy, but scavenging a proper fishing equipment won't be too hard if I'm near a lake or something
I should probably bring some seeds but I didn't find anything resembling
ah, didn't even see it. carry on then.
>shit you actually own
i have to food shop tomorrow so if shit hit the fan today the most food i could scrounge up is a few cans of veggies and snacks... pretty fucked.
now... that's a pretty good kit.
But what about the only water you find is all polluted from the remnant of the old world.
Also at some point you will stop finding animals around you to kill and you would have to go farther and farther to feed yourself at the point to live a semi-nomadic life
you have no fucking idea what you're talking about, lol. civilians in free states (i.e not commiefornia) can buy plate carriers and plates that can prevent most rifle rounds from penetrating. the only thing HELMETS are for is shrapnel, retard. If you take a round directly in the center of your helmet, you're dead.
THAT BEING SAID, most people don't own them, they're expensive and you're right, they're extremely bulky and if you're not used to rucking that much weight you'll be too fucking tired all the time to even operate.
for some reason I feel like you don't own an x26 tazer.. they're usually almost a thousand dollars and they're restricted in a lot of places to only law enforcement and military.
also forgot to mention something important
>plastic bags and change of clothes in case I have to cross a river swimming
I don't want my ammo to get wet or to die freezing so changing in dry clothes is essential for survival.
I should definitely pack a toothbrush instead of the gun, that would be the only bad point I see in my setup
>forgot my file
shit you actually own edition here
fellow sks owner, hello my brother
canadian, in the military
depending on the circumstances I could get access to a sig saur and a C7 along with body armor and ammo
are u happy fucker
heres ur fuckin realism
i was talking about good plate carriers being expensive, not helmets. reread the post.
and the helmets I'm referring to are the ones the U.S military currently uses. 5.56 shot on a straight angle will punch right through it. on a side angle they tend to bounce off or skim around the sides. I'm quite aware milsurp helmets are cheap, lol.
Well to exhaust the whole game of the forrests near where I live by myself would be complicated.
But even in the case that the game moves I plan on growing shit in the long run anyway. The hunting is for the settling in until my stuff grows and for the occasional meat in order to stuff dried/smoked meat for winter.
If every water is polluted in your scenario I don't see anybody survivng more than a few days! I would be able to make a rain trap with the tent/tarp though
nice , haven't broke the sks out in a while but mine doesn't have wood furniture has synthetic shit when i bought the thing nice little Chinese sks
thinking about getting a kit to let it feed ak mags
Only stuff I actually have, and only things I'd carry. Everything else can stay in my car or a camper. Dress light, cause it's fucking 90 degrees 70% humidity every goddamned day. No food worries, cause there's a lot more farms than you'd think there'd be, and with so many dead there's gonna be work available.
Seems easy enough to "take" one in an apocalypse
If there is so few people it won't be a safe place. With such a poor description of the situation by OP, I prepared myself for a hostile environment. If you wanted realism, then state so in the description :/
Obviously, I would focus waaaaaay more on survival than on ammo/weaponry if the situation wasn't as hostile as stated by OP.
I did not get into detail, and you are probably right that I am not very knowledgeable about them.
But what I know is that a regular police vest won't stop much NATO rounds in a direct shot.
heavier plates might stop/deflect ak rounds or even NATO and light snipers but hell the energy of the round takes you to the ground.
They are only meant to turn a deadly shot into a non fatal injury that can be treated if you are evacuated by the rest of your team to a field hospital.
If you are by yourself, even if the plate saves your ass at the moment of the impact, you'll still be pinned to the ground.
Imagining that for some fucking reason your attacker does not make the most of it to achieve you, chances are you'll die of infection/passing out with broken ribs etc anyway.
but I think we agree on their uselessness in this situation anyway so I won't rant more !
Forgot to mention that I tried to sort the stuff in order to have the most essential things in the lightier bags.
So if I am in danger I can drop the big backpack and still have enough for bare survival. Next would be the shotgun and the handbag.
Even down to my pocket vest I'd still have the bare essential.
Mines more of a zombie apocalypse thing, but you could easily survive about anywhere for a good few weeks in this
After realizing how much land will be left, I've decided I'm stealing a HMMVW or something from a local military base and driving to the promised Eastern Lands to become a farmer. Fuck Arizona when there are no restrictions anywhere.
yeah anything except yugoslav sks'es are alright
i got my eye on a some us milsurp though i am like completely inlove with my m1 carbine though i should probably shoot my sks more often though
I plan on sleeping in houses and looting food, I have a weapon that is commonly found at gun stores/sporting goods stores, along with the ammo, I can find plenty of parts.
oh yeah, you're definitely right man. that's the point in light kevlar, they're DESIGNED to stop handgun caliber rounds because they're the most commonly used to commit crimes. you can put almost any rifle caliber round through police issue everyday use kevlar. hell, you can probably put birdshot through that shit at point blank. still useless crap unless you're with a group that has a doctor who has the knowhow and equipment to treat internal injuries and broken bones
Which tools do you find missing?
Experience has proven to me that a machete/good knife (machete depending on the country may be more adecuate) with a multitool and firemaker (whichever it is) can be more than enough. If one think I would like to take is needle/thread, but I am open for more suggestions :/
either way if you DID get shot by a high caliber rounds (any rifle grade round etc) you would most likely have broken ribs, atleast if you get hit in the chest, and thats if by some miracle it didnt penetrate.
aha good to see someone more knowledgeable than me is on the same page.
It gets at me a little that all the kids feel they have to put one into their survival kit like some kind of reflex B82 from Counter Strike or something. Video games are so unrealistic with vests and injuries that a lot of people think of them as invulnerability armours without realizing how narrow is their efficiency and how heavy/unconvenient they are
>eat and drink sparingly without starving yourself or dehydrating
>avoid human contact outside of people you trust with your life
that's pretty much the baseline of what you need to know... it's really quite complicated being that when shit hits the fan there's a million things to consider and whatever you're prepared for, there are 5000 more things that can and will kill you
Shit, I hadn't even considered that. Steal an amphibious APC from the local guard armory, some guns/ammo/mre's, a few cans of diesel, and hit the road till you find some land you like with a nice house already on it, and farm to your heart's content.
I don't have super extensive experience with modern armor being that I've never actually seen combat but I do know a bit about it, and one thing I can tell you is if you get shot, it's always going to fucking knock you on your ass. ALWAYS. It doesn't matter if you're the baddest motherfucker around, the pure fucking energy that rifle caliber rounds deliver onto your body will give you something to cry about
I see a lot of people putting crossbow in their gear, but I don't know if they all realize how hard it is to hunt with one.
I mean it's already nearly impssible to get big game with a hunting rifle if you have never done it before, so sneaking up on it to a few yards with a crossbow is something reserved for very experienced hunters
one of my friends hunts the boar with a fucking bow like a goddamn caveman and it always amaze me
I think some of you guys are seriously over doing this
sounds like a great plan; probably way sounder that my survivor shit in the forrest.
I mean why bother trying to grow shit in some wasteland when some perfectly fertile plain, already cultivated, are waiting for you somewhere!
It's a bit off. You have a lot of wasted weight involved in your ruck.
First things I notice are the emphasis on the gas mask. The chances of both you ever needing it and it actually saving your life are so low that it's not even worth the weight to bring along.
The crossbow is pretty much worthless unless you plan on hunting with it. You need more nutrition in your ruck, and at least three sources of fire. You're lacking a good fixed blade knife.
Portable solar cell = win, but that's not available.
Toothbrush... am I really going to find toothpaste? If so, I would take it. Otherwise, it would not be so useful.
Again, I am not being realistic :/
Just designed an extreme gear choice for a supposedtly extreme situation.
Is such gear optimal in normal conditions? I know it is not. IRL i wouldn't focus so much on weaponry, I would focus way more on tools/survival, as you noted. But the situation stated was not realistic either :/
As someone said somewhere ITT, there would be a man once each 50 sq miles or so, and I assumed based on the definition of the situation that that person would be hostile, so I want to notice him ASAP and take the high ground.
If you define a different situation (aka, more realistic), I can design a better gear choice (less weaponry, more tools and less weight). But that's not the situation I chose my luggage for :/
well if the plates prevent it from going through you, it means you are taking the whole kinetic energy of the round on your body anyway.
We are talking several grams of metal going faster than the sound so, yeah, that's a lot of energy!
This is what I'd like to have.
How am I geared?
I've never fired a gun before, so putting anything more powerful than a pistol in my loadout wouldn't be practical. Then again, I've never shot a crossbow either. I've always kind of assumed that a crossbow would be easier than handling a rifle, which is why I always choose it in lieu of a firearm when making loadouts like this.
Also, your friend is a fucking boss.
pack some food, iodine drops to purify water and a lighter with fluid.
maybe a rope but you have the very basics.
If you stay in an urban area and scavenge the supermarkets/vending machines you have your chances.
I'm a vet of the U.S Military, and still have access to my base. I also live directly down the street from a police station. Everything in my kit, I can get.
I only chose stuff I actually have, with the exception of the Bulletproof Jacket, snowsuit, and the red dot sight.
>also literally this
I forget to mention this a lot, but when you have to leave your home and live innawoods, there are four or so things that are so fucking important that we all tend to forget.
>foot powder for your sweaty boot feet
>a thousand extra pair of socks
bad socks = bad feet = no mobility = you die
>Nuclear Holocost, not virus?
During winter it goes down to the ~60s at most. Maybe a week tops at sub 40 if there's a particularly bad stormfront. Only changes between this setup and nuclear survival would be a heavy jacket (got), and a gieger counter (don't got, but can find within a week). I'd just be looking out for Deathclaws at that point.
I have very little experience with crossbows but I'd say they require training to be operated properly.
Also they are huge as fuck
so it seems a bit unpractical in your situation. A basic handgun like a glock should be operable by someone without experience in an easier way and would weight less and be easier to carry.
that's my 2cents anyway
and yeah my friend is really something. Worst part is that he doesn't look like it, he's like some slim tall nerd with spaghetti arms and huge glasses.
He actually looks something like this pic, it always gets me loling
It's not *that* heavy and unconvenient with a proper backpack in my opinion.
I could get rid of the guitar, which doesn't weight that much (though it adds up), but is a bit of an encumbrance.
I think that you end up throwing away the things you really don't need anyway.
Indeed, but I think it (or similar) is still better than firearms : no ammo shortage (reusable shots and possibility to make some more homemade), easier to repair, quiet (both for practicity and security).
It's only there because, anyway.
And widespread firearms-at-home isn't really part of the culture I live in (European/French), so there's that, too.
why the fuck would you carry such an hevy load made of pure firearms and explosives?
would you plan on killing everybody you encounter on sight?
you'll probably team around with some military friends but with your plate amor and all the weight of your ammo and weapons you wouldn't be very mobile...
Post up in my own home. I use my garage basically as a storage unit, so I'd probably just take out everything useful in there and burn the rest, and make room for my car. I live in Western Washington State, and my house is up in a forest, so wood wouldn't be an issue for fire for the fireplace and smoker. Lots of windows so I'd board those up with shit I find around the house. The kit I posted >>568577229 would just be for adventuring outside the house and going around town and maybe going out to the grocery store, etc.
it'll depend if someone I can trust has survived too.
If not, I'd team and try to gather other survivors to rebuild society in some remnants of an urban area.
If so, we'd just go our way and live as hermits somewhere in order to avoid shenanigans and fucking looters.
the only thing you can do is start going to the range. shooting is a really fun, very useful skill to have. but please, please, please learn firearm and range safety. I hate going to the range and having people sweep me with their shitty 10/22's and worrying about dying because some moron can't keep his rifle aimed down range. learning to shoot can be relatively cheap too, you can get a military surplus mosin for less than 200$ and they're very fun to learn on. taught 3 of my friends on a shitty 91/30 :)
Considering that I'm one out of ten thousand survivors in an undecided place, I'd have to worry about someone trying to kill me, the heat and cold, viral threat, and quality of game available for food.
>extra socks and foot powder
hell fucking yeah
>sun block and bug spray
well if you are not retarded you can survive wihout them. Of course if you are in a fucking guatemalan jungle the bug spray is more important and if you are wandering the arizonan desert the sunblock becomes mandatory. But in most cases it would be okay
kid, even the most retarded boyscout can survive in the wood without TP
hell, half of humankind are actually taking shits all around the world right noz without it and they aren't too bad off.
This is my standard "on the way to work" in the winter.
I've got plenty of food/water at both ends.
Also, not pictured (because they're not in but they are insignificant in size) which are in the medic bag:
Notebooks (more than just the one in the medic bag)
Several hair ties
A few dog collars (small leather buckled straps are super handy)
I may also have some pliers, assorted papers, and some exacto knives and glue depending on the day.
agree on the silence part, not so much on the ammo side. These arrow can break easily and aren't reusable so much. Homemade ones would fly pretty terribly.
Anyhow in OP's setup there is very little use for weapons outside of hunting necesities. And as I said, if you are inexperienced I don't really think you'll be able to hunt anything with it anyway.
If you are french there are some armories in most town and you'll find shotguns in nearly every agricultor house.
A basic hunting shotgun is very easy to operate and with the right gauge you might get small game like rabbits or birds even if inexperienced.
mais ca c'est juste mon avis!
That's my point friend, wiping my asshole with napkins makes it sore and then walking is slightly painful. I know from experience because me and a bro go rucking innawoods for fun occasionally, haha.
If everyone was dead, I'd easily find this stuff everywhere, I live in a place filled with drug traffickers, so salvaging their weapons would be most likely, there are also basic pharmacies all around and convenience stores, basic sports bags and sidebags are almost everywhere, I have a machete and basic everyday knives in my home, and a bandana... well, who wouldn't wear one
gonna loot abandoned houses for every other essential.
you can wipe with leaves,
you can wipe with a piece of cloth you found
you can wipe with newspapers/books scavenged
you can wipe with your fucking hand and clean it right after
you can wipe yourself with a handful of grass
just don't wipe yourself with poison ivy and you should be fine
Yeah I never really used a crossbow, but I definitely know that it can be not as practical as usually thought.
The "homemade shots" stuff was about badly crafted emergency ammo though. :P
Funnily enough, the first thing I choose was a hunting shotgun, before switching.
I'm not experienced at all in survival stuff anyway, so my setup was mostly a wild guess.
don't worry, we are just a bunch of nerd arguing on internet about a loadout generator game...
Pretty little to do with actual survival!
you had most of the basics right from the start so you should not be worrying too much.
Also France is vast and has a lot of game and agricultural ressources everywhere, you're safe there!
>yfw the world is in ruins and im the only one with sweet delicious pickled vegetables
wipe with one you already finished
or a very shitty one
I don't own all of it, but if I did I think I'd be pretty well off.
any good? first time trying this, but was thinking survivalist stuff back in 2012
Go ahead and guess what's in all these bags.
Here's a hint:
It's fun to act serious about non-serious things.
list = flashlight (won't last long tho)
swiss army knife, rope, toothbrush (toothpaste not very long lasting), iodine, firestarting metal thingie, compass, map, thread and needles to sew clothes (or animal skin), shovel, antibiotics, bandage box, doctor's bag, tent, blanket, sleeping bag, fishing kit, pan, pot (you gotta cook the fish you catch and boil the water!), water jerrycan, box of ammo, akm/ak47, machete (to cut wood/leaves clear path), wasteland knife, binoculars, and snowsuit and hood
like i said, toothpaste, night vision goggles (require batteries) flashlight and iodine won't last long (but i can boil water). tinder for starting fire neither, but it lasts longer than matches.
anyway that was the thinking behind it
> US military vet
> Rifle no-one here uses
> Prison shank tier knife
> Shotgun no-one here uses
> Camouflage no-one here uses
> More ammunition than food or water
> No fire starting supplies
> More than a standard combat load of weaponry
> A fucking claymore while likely lacking EOD experience
Man, I wish I was half as cool as you guys. All I have is, like, a medical kit and some beans.
Alright, I'm sold on the billie club.
And I meant it didn't have one until you put one on it, opposite of >>568582317
I like this one.
Mental image of you realizing you didn't pack earth-colored clothing when you have to hide to use that rifle.
This is all things I own. I grew up camping a lot and having been recreational shooting in the Nevadan desert since I was 4. 99% of the supplies I actually already have stashed away in a bug-out bag.
Rifle and Glock are mine. I'm more than likely traveling in a group, thus I don't need to be the one carrying Survival supplies. Claymores can come in handy when you least expect them to, so why not...Brah.
well, i wasn't really planning on going into city's much, too many people could be in them. I prefer the survivalist approach. Living in Alaska has its benefits. People have been living on there on their own for a very long time.
The plan is to find a camp of redneck barbarians and blow them
Wears white to attract anons with big guns and no ammo.

It's like you want to get yourself killed
I will definitely not be bringing a bulletproof vest or a new gun that's going jam and fall apart on you in a week.
neither rain nor snow, apocalypse or not, the mail must go out.
If I had to leave here in the next 15 minutes, without access to my bug-out bag, this is most likely the best I could do.
The real beauty of this one is all in the weapons. If they make it past The Overkiller pistol party, then I'll break out The Cleaver and sight in on their demise. Worst case, I lob a couple of gas grenades, and my skull ski mask will filter my oxygen intake to keep me immune.
How can I afford all of this? Simple. A cheap diet consisting exclusively of potatoes, and a side job as a traveling backpack salesman.
>mfw a thousand glowsticks, a whistle and no shirt
I have access to all of these items but then again I'm in the military so I'll probably be dead first.
