I was just arguing semantics really. If you came across a machine gun with .50 calibre bullets and had plenty of them then this principle of mounting at a higher height to get a better "chance" of getting a headshot will increase the average amount of bullets that hit the head because you move the bullet to air density up the body. Any kind of LMG puts off rounds that punch through bodies so if fruitful circumstances arise then this could be a better application then simply walking around with it.

Again you could argue the next point that an LMG at leg level, cutting swathes into an approaching horde, while killing next to no zombies does blow their legs apart. Legs blown apart means no walking and I would much rather deal with a horde of crawling zombies then walking/running ones.

They'd probably just fall over rather than get decapitated to be honest.

I know, I was just being silly.

If you had enough rounds you would Chop them down to crawling level and your gun is then set to head or center mass height, HELLO OVERKILL.

Overkill is what's needed! they didn't get the memo that they were already dead to begin with.

I had been thinking that having a flame thrower would be awesome during such times, but I think the smell would get to me.

BBQ is not a bad smell Smiley

Also if they kept some motor skill after becoming a zed fire would be an issue with walking matchsticks *they are dry and burn hot*

I would think dead people smell horrible, were not exactly grain fed beef! (unless your a vegetarian, then your just good eats)   

Maybe it would work better if there was a deep trench just after they get toasted, they fall in and end up the black greasy dust at the bottom of the BBQ.

awesome! so the flamethrower can be fed! that makes it a more viable option to me than a gun.  Once the bullets run out, your only left with a pistol whipping option...which is closer than I want to be to a zombie!

A lot of firefighters cannot eat bacon anymore. The smell of bacon is very similar to the smell of burning flesh.
