Sucks to Be You, Zombies: Rocket-Propelled Chainsaw Launcher Schematic

The rocket-propelled chainsaw launcher. Which seems like a terribly logical way to avoid second-hand smoke if you’re ever hunting a zombie Audrey Hepburn.

Rocket Propelled Chainsaw

(Please, oh, please let there be an angry nerd who comments on this post to explain why this could never work.)

Via technabob, knows why this could never work. And it starts with there being no such thing as a “rocket motor”.

    I’m willing to suspend disbelief only ’cause the concept is so much splattery fun!

    Designed right, I’d give it a decent accuracy around 50-100 yards. A rifle would shoot further and cost less, but it wouldn’t be nearly as much fun! I could see this being the BFG of some bad B apocalyptic zombie flick soon.

    Must… add… heat… seeking…

    OK, I have to nerd out in protest here a bit. Launching a chainsaw, fine. But wouldn’t you need to shoot it out with some rotation along the pitch axis, so that when it impacts, the sawing action is maximized?

    The way this thing is designed, the chainsaw would just impact the zombie with the hope that it has enough forward-facing force that it stabs into the zombie meat.

    And to Ratpukin’s point, not sure heat seeking would work. Zombies are cold-blooded, aren’t they?

    yeah to add to nickolai the heat seeking would turn it round and shoot the warm blooded human who shot it or other humans around it…dead things tend to not have any heat (love how we’re discussing this and not the existance of zombies :3 )

    just saying, but there is such a thing as a rocket motor. Google it. Thousands of people do model rocketry as a hobby. However, I’m not sure a chainsaw would work out….

    How about a bag full of ninja stars?
