Battle to the Death at Home Depot

Recommended Posts

So you are chosen to compete against 9 other people. All ten of you are locked in a standard Home Depot, that is dark except the emergency lights above the exits. The goal is to kill one another to become the last man standing, last person alive gets to leave.

 

You are allowed to choose 3 pieces of equipment to aid you. Anything with a bar-code counts as one piece of equipment, for example, if you choose a nail gun, then a container of nails will be needed, so that would equal two pieces of equipment. If the equipment needs something to operate, like gas or batteries, the second thing will count as an item. You can use only the equipment you choose, no scalping from dead guys.

 

What three weapons would you choose, and what would be your strategy?

 

Discuss.

mexicans, while often found at home depot, do not have a barcode.

 

 

I would get an axe, a piece of thick sheet metal, and a welders mask, put the sheet metal against a corner, get behind it, crouch down, then swing when you got close. If yo try and nailgun me the sheet metal and welders mask will handle that no prob. I will at least be one of the last 2...

 

 

also NAILGUNS REQUIRE A HIGH PRESSURE AIR TANK.... I think for the most part. When i did construction every nail gun I ever seen was hooked to an air compressor

Remember the lights are not on, only the emergency exit lights.

If any of you guys have been in a huge store with all the lights out, it is fucking dark.

There will be parts of the store where you will see nothing.

Most nail guns need a compressor so that weapon will count for 3 items.

Compressor, nails, nail gun.

 

Also they don't sell gasoline at Home Depot so chainsaws are out.

and I will be in a dark corner, waiting, behind a sheet of metal backed in the corner... waiting

 

 

also I would take my chances with a metal axe over a chainsaw in this situation, where stealth can be used to your advantage

my choices would be: a big thing of kerosene or gasoline or any flammable liquid, a metal garbage can lid to use as a shield, and a machete

 

Then i would light the wood section of the store on fire with the kerosene, and dump the rest all over the place. While the store is burning down i run around with my shield and machete to go die a warriors death

A manager from a Home Depot posted this on another site.

 

"As a manager of a Home Depot, a few observations:

The rules say the store is dark, only lights from emergency exit signs. It gets dark as a cave in some parts of the store when the power goes off. We have flashlights stored at the front of the store for the cashiers to use during power failures to walk customers out of the store.

Everybody grabbing battery powered tools...the batteries have zero or almost no charge when you take them off the shelf.

I worked clean up in the old Arboretum store for several weeks after a kid almost burned the store down one night. He got bored waiting for his mom to pick out some paint and started a fire in the paint dept with a grill starter and some cardboard. The fire spread quickly and they barely got everybody out of the building, and the sprinklers kicked in and knocked down the worst of the fire. The sprinklers are loud, put out a LOT of water very fast, and make a huge slippery wet mess.

Being in the over heads would be a huge tactical advantage, you would have a lot of cover from projectile weapons and could very easily push over huge pallets of doors, windows, or appliances etc from a hidden position and squish your enemies like a bug.

The stores don't sell kitchen knives in store. We do sell machetes. We don't sell pre mixed gas and oil.

Muriatic acid is usually in the outside garden dept.

There is a lot of open space above the offices, bookkeeping, break room, training room, and janitors closet. Great places to hide. "

Or a job, or a GED, or a drivers license, or a valid passport.......
