Hey again. Looking for some additional ideas for some funny Mc Guivered weapons and items. Using these shops as potential supply areas what would you make. Any good ideas will be incorparated into my game and Ill be sure to give you credit.

Just please explain how it would work in a zombie apocalypse. Attack or defence.

Also for combining items I was thinking of anywhere between 2-4 items makjng your cool and improvised weapons or defencive items.

Heres the list of buildings.

Arcade
Coffee House x 2
Corner Store x 2
Candy Shop x 2
Fire Dept
Furniture Shop
Gun Store
Gymnasium
Hotel
Hardware Store
Hospital
Police Dept
Pet Store
Sex Store
Sporting Goods
Toy Store
Warehouse

Also if you can think up a shop not listed let me know your ideas, I'd be glad to take out any of the duplicated Coffee Shop, Candy Store or Corner Store

Gym- A barbell with a single 10 lb weight on one end would make a great mace.

Sporting goods store- BMX padding makes good, light weight armor.

Hardware Store x3 + Police Department x1 = Pneumatic Nailed Riot Shield (Nails, Pneumatic Pump & Battery from hardware store // Riot shield from police department)
"The finest in Defense / Offense combination. Not only can our patented device keep you safe from clawing hands and biting teeth should the worst come to happen, but you can also ensure that they only do it once!


Fire Department x1 + Hospital x1 + Hardware Store x2 = Long-Range Resuscitation Unit (Fire Hose // Defibrillator // Extra Wire & Zap Straps)
Is a loved one suffering from Heart Arrhythmia - and you find yourself not close enough to administer loving support? Well never fear, our latest creation will allow you to administer that much needed reviving touch while keeping yourself out of range of those that could cause you harm. *warning* do not use as a flotation device *warning*

--

As some advice for thinking up combinations, I would suggest check out the Dead Rising games - you don't need to copy what they have but there are tons of store and tons of objects, and those themselves could give you ideas for different combinations to base off of those. Can also give you an idea about the different buildings you could include.

Re-wire the arcade machines to conduct electricity.
Use the pin balls as slugs, The roller target wood balls as a projectile..

The old "Home Alone" video games are also a good source.

They had things like "Spool of Wire + Blowtorch = Flame Trap" and "Can + Rubberband + Sticky Candy = Glue Catapult" and stuff like that.

Set the pinball machine on wheels, and ride it down Main Street, lighting up and counting your score as you bounce off each zombie.

For extra propulsion, you can tie a shower curtain to two zombies, and light a baseball bat on fire, then use it to get the zombies to run.

Don't forget to whack away any zombies with your (batteries+coil+tennis racket) Electric Paddle. I suppose you could attach it to a skateboard and a roller pin to make it foot-operated.

One of those things people use to throw tennis balls for their dogs + Tennis ball filled with Gun powder. Light the tenis ball and give it a toss. I'm not sure if that would work, I should probably give it a try.

You could mount a couple heavy machine guns from the gun store onto a pallet jack from the warehouse to give yourself a mobile heavy weapons platform.

You could use wire from the hardware store to secure a circular saw blade, also from the hardware store, to a baseball bat from the sporting goods store.

You could use wire from the hardware store to attach a defibrillator from the hospital to the spikes of running shoes from the sporting goods store. Then you either wear the shoes to add some juice to your roundhouse kicks, or put the shoes on your hands and punch the zeds.

You could attach some confiscated explosives from the police station to a remote-controlled helicopter from the toy store to deliver a big bang to a large group of zombies.

You could smear meat from the corner store onto a blowup doll from the sex shop to create bait for a zombie trap.

You could use duct tape from the corner store to attach the fudge-slicing knife from the candy shop to a shower curtain rod from the hotel to create a spear.

You could use broken chair legs from the furniture store, screwdrivers from the hardware store, and duct tape from the corner store to make javelins, which you can carry in a golf bag from the sporting goods store.

You could use packing straps from the furniture store to attach two axes from the fire department to a barbell from the gym to create a double-edged axe.

You could use a nail gun from the hardware store to punch nails through riot gear from the police station, creating a spiked vest, a spiked shield, and spiked gloves.

You could use golf balls from the sporting goods store and massive amounts of lubricant from the sex shop to create a slippery defensive perimeter.

You could use nails from the hardware store and wads of gum from the candy shop to create caltrops.

You could use wire from the hardware store to attach two or three chainsaws from the hardware store to one end of a gurney from the hospital. Then you can slice zombies and defend a corridor while staying out of arm's reach of the zeds.

You could put a filing cabinet from the furniture store sideways onto a dolly from the warehouse. Fill the cabinet draws with pistols and ammunition from the gun store. You'll be able to transport a lot of fire power on foot.

You could fill a maid's cart from the hotel with open bottles of alcohol from the corner store. Set it ablaze and roll that puppy into the middle of a hoard for fun and profit.
