Gotta keep it simple, you niggas talking about setting trip wires and shit are gonna get gibbed in the back while you're bending down tieing a fucking wire for the 15th time. Plus how the hell you gonna remember where you set your wires down at? It's pitch black in there, even after your eyes adjust, and you are more likely to trip over your own shit than anything else.
And carrying a 6 foot ladder around everywhere you go? Yeah ok. Dead.
You need two weapons, machete and something ranged. If they sell crossbows, that's pretty lethal. They make very little noise, and require no-skill or setup to use. The third choice is probably critical to your survival, as everyone else has likely make the same decision you did for the first two choices (2 weapons, not the two mentioned in particular). Do they sell night vision goggles anywhere? Just checked, nope. But I did find this, which I would probably choose as my 3rd.
You can use this to set traps, via audio (people are dumb and will inspect noises), and get visuals as well from the night vision camera. It comes with batteries, lasting 10 hours.
