OK, zombiologists, conspiracy theorists, slaves to sci-fi, and keepers of the Boy Scout motto, it's time to put your $24,000 where your mouth is. OpticsPlanet has assembled a stunning and formidable sprawl of zombie apocalypse survival tools into the Z.E.R.O. (Zombie Extermination, Research and Operations) Kit, and in so doing, crowned itself the indisputable overlord of the undead offensive.

Equal parts, tactical, medical, scientific, defensive, and Yippee-ki-yay, mother fucker!, the Z.E.R.O. arms zombie annihilators both to combat the infected who cannot be saved, and to develop a cure for the innocent who still can. In warpainted vigilante mode, you can use the likes of night vision scopes to enhance your already keen retinal zombie detection powers, a watch with SureShot calculator that provides shooting solutions out to 1000 feet for wiping out a nest sniper-style, and a thermal imaging camera for tracking trails of freshly disembodied brain matter. Up close, laser grips aid in distraction when blood brawls get sticky, and compact knives stored in a tactical vest deliver last-chance guttings when a zombie has you in its throes. And when you walk away from the battle unscathed, kick back and relax with a cold one from the kit's Tactical Beer Mug.

When not actively kicking ass, zombie assailants can employ the Z.E.R.O.'s panoply of laboratory equipment to test samples and experiment on captured carriers in hopes of finding a cure for the pandemic, or at least a means of systematically obliterating the flesh-eaters without risking human lives. OpticsPlanet also points out the possibility of researching an appetite suppressant that curbs zombies' hunger for human flesh, or developing a method of training them to be docile, since they can perform the physical work of 30 men, and could thus be very useful in our quest to be an entirely sedentary race. Anyway, beakers, pipettes, a Celestron microscope, even an incinerator all contribute to the advancement of this noble Undead Reappropriation cause.
