Pretty much. You don't actually have to hit anyone with some weapons... anything that pumps out a large volume of fire at a decent caliber displaces enough air to mess somebody up (albeit not fatally most of the time) that you don't have to hit. It'd be kind of dumb to have a shooter where you just have to aim in the general area and somebody goes down.

you can carry: a rocket launcher, shotgun and ammo

and they take up the same space as: handgun, knife, ammo for handgun, and a key
resident evils (except 4)

keys take up an inventory space equal to that of the biggest guns (most shooters)

the police, army, mad american people with hundreds of guns will always be killed by zombies first, while you the guy whos ony just woke up, armed with a knife WILL survive

evem though you are trained in the army, and have just been told that a headshot kills zombies instantly, will always take five shots to kill it

you can escape a nuke, and the radition contained therein, in a helicopter thats only just taken off.

and finally: Busting does make me fell good, surprisingly

Quisnam praesumo, successio

Don't forget that you go deaf after 5 minutes of using the machine gun.

On the subject of Rat Ogres:
But if we give them laser eyes and mounted guns, we'll have to bring in Clan Skryre, and everyone knows how much those limp-tailed snuff addicts overcharge.

After killing somebody with the KGB, all you shots for the next 5 seconds will be critical. Multiple subsequent kills will prolong this 5 second period.

It's changed my life.

tread lightly, and carry a big gun (dawn of war)

dont bother killing zombies with a gun, use a flamethrower (any zombie game)

Seven, That is all.
