ChainsawsThanks to movies like the Evil Dead series and video games, many people immediately think of chainsaws when they think of great weapons for killing zombies. This mentality will get a lot of people killed. Despite the much-needed morale boost you may get from wielding one, chainsaws are among the worst weapons for putting down the undead. A chainsaw is a complex machine, and as a rule, any machine with moving parts should be immediately discounted as an effective melee weapon against a zombie. They're heavy (usually 10 lbs.), they're loud, they can get jammed with zombie guts, they create splatter that can get in your face and infect you, they can easily cut the person wielding it (as seen in the Dawn of the Dead remake, and the reason why loggers who use these wear special clothing), the chain can break easily (there are gruesome stories of loggers who lost limbs when the chain snapped and flew off because of a simple nail embedded in the tree by an eco-terrorist), and when they run out of gas or batteries, there's as much remaining killing potential as a handheld boom box. Finally, the "scare effect" of fighting a chainsaw-wielding lunatic is completely lost on the unfeeling undead. Do not, under any circumstances, consider using a chainsaw to fight even a single zombie. Instead, use it to clear brush in a safe zone, or better yet, scare off the occasional scavenger. Also, the chainsaw in terms of killing power is a tad overkill, and requires some effort on the part of the user to cut into a zombie's neck or head, and pulling the weapon out after the kill can be difficult due to weight and often panic caused by the numerous other zombies swarming over you.

And it doesn't mention the fact that it will attract them with the noise.

But What's happen if anyone that using Chainsaw to Fight Zombies is Wearing Nanosuit From Crysis or just anything that Combines functions of Powered Exoskeleton, Hazmat suit, and armor suit thus to make this better the person that Wearing Nanosuit or similar thing has Mastered Chainsaw fighting Style and if this isn't enough what happen if that zombies is Portrayed as Radioactive or Magically animated people instead Biologically Infected People (Despite their Portrayals, they are still archetypal Flesh-eating Zombies)?

Masonicon, please understand that a Chainsaw does not cut, it saws. that is a big difference It is not suited for fighting because it works slowly and does not benefit from quick or powerful motions in a fight. And as has been said, blood, guts and clothing are likely to stall the chainsaw anyway.

You can more easily, silently and quickly hurt a "zombie" with about any other conceivable melee weapon. Even a 10 pound sledgehammer will be more effective than a 10 pound chainsaw, ESPECIALLY if the fighter is wearing strength-augmenting "Nano Suits".

Lets not forget that most weapons are also a lot less messy than the chainsaw.

But what happens if That Chainsaw is suited for Fighting like those in Gears of War?

A chainsaw used as a weapon is just as likely to kill the person holding it.

Because the chain is just a collection of tightly stretched links moving incredibly fast, it is very vulnerable. If you are cutting one thing and another thing touches the chain it can break and fly off. As a projectile the chain is incredibly dangerous.

Living in the country I saw a neighbour go off sawing wood one day. He tilted the blade so the chain touched a branch a little higher than the one he was cutting.

You might say he lost his head in the excitement ...

CHemical cutting is far more compact and powerfull.

If used aganst possible biologicaly hazardious enemys you are going to contaminate yourself unless ADVANCED biological protection is worn. In the future im sure some sort of vibrating nano carbon tube thread could be used for a much more portable and powerfull cutting tool... but even then..

This is the LAST thing you want to use against zombies.....

They are a wonderful tool, but not a very good weapon of choice...loud, unwieldy, run out of gas, nope...stick with an axe. The only time I would use a chainsaw as a weapon is if Jason or Leatherface attacked while I was sawing firewood.

Turning any liquid containing radioactive components into a mist is a bad idea without the correct protection. Without said protective suit... fragments of bone chipped away WILL cut you as you move the flow of debries across your own body by swinging the chainsaw. Large amounts of blood could kill the engine as well.

BAD BAD weapon. Youd be better off with a sword or a gun. A removal of mobility is still a kill in the world of slow moving monsters. If you cant kill them with a head shot you can always remove their ability to properly use their eyes or move freely.

Never use chopping weapons against intelligent undead foes. They will grab it and pull you closer. You must chop CLEANLY through such enemys swiftly........

With a large and heavy chopping weapon that is NEARLY impossible. Guns and explosives are always the best weapons.

Also.... never use explosive indoors. In the movies everyones alright when somone sets off dynomite in a tunnle and they just stick to the wall... in real life the pressure wave will turn you to mush if you are anywhere within the area of compression.

The Nanosuit that the Chainsaw Fighter Already wears are Offers Correct Protection against Liquid Containing Radioactive Components and Anything Biohazardous, Thus it also Protects its wearer from Fragments of bone chipped away by Maximum Armor mode!
