Even on people flames don’t work quickly, unless the flames get into your lungs. Zombies don’t have to breathe to live, and there is no oxygen in the lungs anyways for the flames to survive. So that means no dead zombie. It won’t work quickly, because all of its flesh has to burn off first just to make it immobile.
The weight of the equipment was one of the biggest complaints soldiers had when carrying flamethrowers in previous wars. This means you’re going to tire very quickly and it’s really hot, which makes you at risk for passing out. You + flamethrower + passed out = zombie barbeque.
To get around the weight and the close flaming zombies you might think that a modtof cocktail is the perfect idea. Take one zombie on fire and multiply it by 10. You will stand there like a giggling child with his first match when you see your plan work perfectly, but it will fail. The zombies are walking torches and will set anything they give their little zombie hugs to on fire. Now you’re standing in a forest, grassland, town, or God forbid a city that will go up in flames.
You should have stood in front of the zombie horde and let the zombies have you saving the other survivors from your stupidity. If you see anyone using flame weapons in the zombie apocalypse, you have one choice – eliminate them, use them as bait, shoot them, just don’t let them torch the zombies!
What is your weapon of choice to defeat an onslaught of the undead?
