TOP FIVE BEST WEAPONS USED IN THE WALKING DEAD

The Walking Dead Season 4 is about to end and we just can't wait to see the finale next week. The series has a total of four seasons with fifty-one episodes. We have seen different characters who managed to survive the apocalypse not because of luck but due to their exceptional skills in fighting. Some of these characters became notable because of their unique weapons too. Listed below are my personal picks of Five best weapons used in The Walking Dead Tv series.
TOP FIVE BEST WEAPONS USED IN THE WALKING DEAD
Author's Note : Just a quick note, I EXCLUDED all GUNS in this lists. We are looking for some badass weapons here and I personally think guns should not be included. First of all , I am not a big fan of them and second, it doesn't have any cool factor for me at all. Equipping yourself with gun is such a common thing but arming yourself with a very unusual weapon makes you even cooler. So let's start listing shall we?

TOP 5 BEST WEAPON USED IN THE WALKING DEAD
"MERLE'S IMPROVISED HAND BLADE"
After amputating his own hand, Merle Dixon later replaced it with a metal sleeve with an attachment for a bayonet. He is deadly with firearms by default but in the third season, his hand-blade attachment proves to be one of his deadliest weapons. In addition to that, Merle was also the first one to fend off Michonne's sword attacks using his hand-blade. Merle is also an experienced bruiser and it was shown in numerous episodes and his hand-blade gave him bigger advantage. 

TOP 4 BEST WEAPON USED IN THE WALKING DEAD
"MARTINEZ BASEBALL BAT"
Too bad Martinez's character wasn't really focused that much in the series compare to what he had in the comics but his exceptional combat skills were greatly emphasized. His signature weapon is his baseball bat with engraved words saying "Eat Me". Smashing walkers using his bat makes him such a badass. However, his bat is nothing to compare with Lucille ( a baseball bat covered with barb wires and walker guts) which is used by Negan in the comics. It is also the bat that killed Glenn. 

TOP 3 BEST WEAPON USED IN THE WALKING DEAD
"TYREESE' HAMMER"
If you are in a world overrun by zombies, I'm sure the first weapon that you want yourself to be equipped with is a gun. In this way, you can shoot the zombies and kill them immediately before they can even approach you. Tyreese , on the other hand, is not a fan of guns and he favored using Hammer instead. Well, the advantage of having melee weapons in this kind of situation is that it doesn't create any loud sound which usually attracts more walkers. 

TOP 2 BEST WEAPON USED IN THE WALKING DEAD
"DARYL'S CROSSBOW"
It is a long ranged weapon and the arrows are executed quietly. This is the reason why Cross bow is such an effective weapon in this kind of world. Of course, you need a good and accurate shooting skill to use this weapon more effectively. The ammunition however is limited and you must be brave enough to retrieve your arrows from the zombies that you have killed. By the way, Daryl's Cross bow is technically identified as Stryker Strykezone 380. 

THE BEST WEAPON USED IN THE WALKING DEAD
"MICHONNE'S KATANA"
Nothing can be stronger than Michonne's Katana as far as the melee combat is concerned. What makes it even more cooler is the fact that is it being wield by a woman. Michonne's Katana. The Katana is mainly used by Michonne as it is her signature weapon. Michonne is seen cutting up and chopping off parts of a zombie in just a matter of seconds.
******************
Other notable weapons include Maggie's Machete and T-Dog's Fire Poker and Carol's knife.
