If zombie hunter team were made up what would your role be with the skills you have right now? you would have a home base that the undead can not get into and your working out of.

 

here is a overview of the roles:

 

team commander: The most specially trained Soldiers in the group. team commander are experts in conducting operations that don't call for conventional military operations and is responsible for typically organized as a 12-man team, known as an Operational Detachment Alpha (ODA).   team commander is the team leader of an ODA, responsible for mission organization, outfitting the team and debriefing mission objectives

 

 

gunsmiths:are the weapons specialists. They're capable of operating and maintaining a wide variety of U.S., Allied and other foreign weaponry.

 

Some of your duties as a Weapons Sergeant may include:

Go behind enemy lines to recruit, train and equip friendly forces for guerrilla raids
Select weapons placements and sites

 

 

Engineer: Engineers help with building structures, developing civil works program, working with natural resources as well as providing combat support on the battlefield.

 

communications: your job would be operate communications gear for the team, They also have serious computer/networking skills.

 

Some of your duties as a Communications may include:

Organize, train, advise and supervise Soldiers in the installation, utilization and operation of communications equipment
Establish and maintain tactical and operational communications and communications equipment
Plan, prepare and assist in the communications targets portion of area study
Supervise the communications functions for operations or missions

 

medical:the most specialized combat forces in the team. The Medical team member is a crucial member of this team and must be ready to perform.Medical team members are considered to be the first-response/trauma medical technicians in . Though they're primarily trained with an emphasis on trauma medicine, they also are some with a working knowledge of dentistry, veterinary care, public sanitation, water quality and optometry.

 

 

intelligence:you job is to get intelligence on the undead and others people out there who could attack the base.

 

 

 

bodyguard or close protection of high-risk principals: Your the team member who protects a person—usually a team engineer ,team communications ,team medical ,team intelligence ,Supply NCO or non-fighter from assault, kidnapping, assassination, loss of confidential information, or other threats. you also help them with there jobs when need be. Your role of is very mundane:searching vehicles,Driving and attentively escorting the person on their day-to-day activities.

 

 

Supply person: The unit Supply person has a vital role in the success of his or her company.

 

The primary duties and responsibilities of a Supply person include: inventories, property accountability, turn-in of unneeded equipment, Organizational Clothing & Individual Equipment, managing the property book and so much more.  you make sure everyone has what they need.

 

 

rifleman:If you have an average size team containing 6-10 people these are the role you should fill. At least half of your team should be rifleman because they are the base grunts and have balanced attributes.

 

 

 

support gunner/heavy weapons:support gunners help to suppress the enemy, defend an area, or to take out a large group of enemies. Support gunners usually hang back behind teammates to give indirect, suppressive fire to drive back opponents. Support gunners are also useful in defense situations because of their rate of fire that they can shoot at an enemy. The most important job of a gunner is to force an enemy into a position of defense that benefits their teammates. The importance of the gunner is not to be fast and maneuverable, like snipers and infantry, but to hold key areas.

 

heavy weapons you also help hold the base or other areas. You use machine guns, mortars, rocket-propelled grenades, flamethrowers, grenade-launchers, anti-tank weapons, and/or other portable heavy weapons to keep undead and raiders at bay.

 

 

 

sniper/spotter:your a highly trained marksman who shoots targets from concealed positions or distances exceeding the capabilities of regular personnel. Snipers typically have specialized training and distinct high-precision rifles.

In addition to marksmanship, snipers are also trained in camouflage, field craft, infiltration, reconnaissance and observation. Snipers are especially effective when deployed within the urban terrain of urban warfare. You give over watch of a area for the team or base,get intelligence of a area and clear areas of things(undead, mines, make sure area is clear for the team.)

Both members can perform either role and often rotate between the two. the spotter assists in observation of targets, atmospheric conditions and handles security of their immediate location and communication with other parties.

The spotter detects, observes, and assigns targets and watches for the results of the shot. Using his spotting scope, he will also read the wind by using physical indicators and the mirage caused by the heat on the ground. Also, in conjunction with the shooter, he will accurately make calculations for distance, angle shooting (slant range), mil dot related calculations, correction for atmospheric conditions and leads for moving targets. It is not unusual for the spotter to be equipped with a notepad and a laptop computer specifically for performing these calculations.

 

He also provides the team security, therefore he is usually armed with an assault rifle. It is often the case that the sniper rifle is assigned exclusively to a single person, therefore in the case of rotation the spotter carries two weapons.

Some military doctrines describe a third member known as the flanker. His task is to have observed areas not visible to the sniper or spotter and assist with the team's rear security.

 

 

designated marksman: The DM's role is to supply rapid accurate fire on enemy targets at ranges up to 800 metres (870 yd) with a highly-accurate semi-automatic rifle equipped with a telescopic sight. Like snipers, DM's are trained in quick and precise shooting, but unlike the more specialised "true" sniper, they are also intended to lay down accurate rapid fire.The DM's role is to provide an additional capability to the team , which is the ability to engage targets at greater ranges than the other members of the squad or section.

 

The DM operates as an integral member of the team, providing a niche capability contributing to the overall firepower of the platoon in the same way as a grenadier with a rifle-mounted grenade launcher, or the gunner who employs the squad/section machine gun. The DM weapon provides a capability to the infantry platoon in the shape of increased precision at a greater range than that provided by the standard infantry rifle, by virtue of its sighting system and/or larger caliber. By comparison, the sniper role is much more specialized with very comprehensive selection, training and equipment.

 

 

room clearer: your the big guy on the team. Your powerful and use shotgun or other things to clear rooms take out doors and kill the undead. You have a sword or something a long those lines for CQC fighting on undead or liveing people.

 

 

 

other: people with skill that don't fall into one group like people who run dog teams or techs.

 

 

non-fighter:you have last pick of guns and don't go anywhere. your the Agriculture or specializing in Animal husbandry and other things(making stuff, fixing things or other noncombat roles). Your a civilian a person who is not a member of the armed forces. The term is also often used colloquially to refer to people who are not members of a particular profession or occupation. you still are needed but your no fighter.

 

 

Conscientious objection:A conscientious objector (CO) is an “individual [who has] claimed the right to refuse to perform military service" on the grounds of freedom of thought, conscience, or religion. Some conscientious objectors consider themselves pacifist, non-resistant, or antimilitarist. You need other to protect you and unlike the other groups you don't carry or no how to use a weapon.

If zombie hunter team were made up what would your role be with the skills you have right now?

With my current skill set I'd probably be a mixture of sniper and intelligence.

 

I definitely have the marksman aspect under control (of course headshots at extended ranges would be debatable- since I'm a practitioner of centre mass).

As for the two other aspects of fieldcraft and concealment I'd need to touch up on (alot).

 

As for intelligence I'm currently doing a course on that. So I'd hope I'd be pretty good at it.

Intelligence or non-combat, depending on what skills everyone else had. I'm good with a map, planning and logical thought, but someone with actual military experience would be a far better choice. Not quite sure what a mathematician can do in a zombie-apocalypse situation, but I can learn fairly quickly so I'm sure I'd find something - maybe cooking, since I'm fairly good at that.

I think someone worth keeping around should be able to fill more than one of these roles, whether they perform them simultaneously, or are just able to adapt to multiple situations.

 

Either way, I think I'd be good at covering a scout/sniper role, I'm good at moving around quickly and quietly (growing up, my parents were light sleepers, the floors were creaky as hell, and the house had no supports under it, so any sudden movements or heavy footsteps could be heard and felt throughout the house.) I've always been a good shot with a rifle, too. I also feel like the sniper and intelligence role would go hand-in-hand.

 

I'd honestly want to get more up-close and personal every now and then, however. Just for fun.

 

Outside of combat, I would be a good hunter-gatherer (hunting as in killing/trapping wild animals). While agriculture would ultimately be the best way to feed ourselves, we'd need some meat every now and then. We could also make use of the fur to keep ourselves warm in the winter, and the bones for various purposes, like arrowheads. A form of weaponry that doesn't use up gunpowder would be a must.

I also feel like the sniper and intelligence role would go hand-in-hand.

 

I understand that sniper teams are extremely good intelligence collectors, but intelligence analysis is best done where the analyst has access to multiple sources of information and the commanders (and others) who need to be informed.

 

 

 

intelligence:you job is to get intelligence on the undead and others people out there who could attack the base.
 

 

Maybe the 'intelligence' option should be split into 'collection' (which would be combined with another role, such as sniper/spotter) and 'analysis' which is a more full-time non-combat role (well, depending on the service - in the British army it can be a combat role in a platoon, whereas in the RAF it's more of a desk job.)

With the skills and abilities I have now, as well as my personality and interests, I think I'd be good as a designated marksman. Despite being a young civilian, I have used range weapons before and have been surprisingly accurate. I've also been told that I have a natural prone position and weapon handling by a high up weapons expert. :) I think a DM would be good as I'm patient, observing, precise and a quick thinker. I would like to be far from danger so I'd have a higher rate of survival, but not too far where I'm not as helpful and I could travel closer if something were to go wrong.

I would be either an engineer or a medic, as they are important members of this kind of team. I also believe that I could do a good job at it, as I am pretty good with both my brain and my hands. I am also pretty OCD with things so I wouldn't likely make many mistakes with my jobs.

Designated Marksman. Always engaging at maximum effective range, but none of that lone wolf infiltration crap the Snipers have to put up with; I'm a team player who works with and supports the squad. :proud:

that would make you room clearer than(also I am a swordsman and I can tell you it does take some effort with a machete to kill zombies.).

 

as you can see from the overview of roles this would be a military, police, EMT, store workers,  ect... mix group of people so weapons would not be a problem just people with the skills to use them or other skill. (it's why I list machine guns, mortars, rocket-propelled grenades, flamethrowers, grenade-launchers, anti-tank weapons. I don't think you find those at walmart).

 

what I would be? well I could be a team leader cause I have trained in some Asymmetric warfare (a US ranger show us some and gave us a reading list of thing. I am no bad guy) and I am better at fighting  with a small team(have done and train like that) but I don't want people death on my shoulders.

 

 

I guess with my skills I would be a bodyguard ,support gunner/heavy weapons, or designated marksman.  I can do any of those and I have shot out to with a HK G3 clone with 175gr bullets out to 850 yards on steel targets.  Swords( I do Tameshigiri) rilfes, handguns, most thing I can use beside shotguns cause we never really trained with them. Also I always wanted to be a PMC (I am always the designated marksman in airsoft games or when we meet for our firearms Defensive Team Tactics  course).
