Default Which 40k weapons would you bring with you in a zombie scenario?

As per title-- which 40 weapon would you bring with you in a zombie scenario. Think 28 days later or (new) Dawn of the Dead type zombies, not the slow ones.

Rules--

You're you. Not a space marine, or an eldar pathfinder, or something like that. So-- if you pick a heavy bolter, don't plan on being able to run away with it...

You have only as much ammo as you can carry.

You can pick multiple weapons, but be reasonable.

No single-man vehicles, like bikes or jetbikes, or any other kind of vehicle.

It can be from the fluff

No armor-save (or invulnerable save) granting equipment

I would take--
C'tan phase sword,
sunrifle
matched laspistols
mandiblasters
digital weapons
some plasma grenades
arbites shotgun
electoos
camoline cloak

Matthias, no armor. No more ammo than what you can carry. That looks pretty heavy. And these are the fast ones...

Have fun with the mastery checks, monkey king...

I'm suprised las weapons aren't more popular, since you can replenish their ammo pretty easily. That would be a big concern of mine.

Lasgun
Lots of Lasgun ammo
Explosive grenades
Death Warrant (if this counts)

And that's about it. If I was carrying any more I wouldn't be able to move quickly at all, and judging by the speed of zombies in 28 Days Later, and Dawn of the Dead, being as fast as I possibly can is the best gift I could be provided with. The Lasgun's extremely light, and while not the strongest gun out there, zombies aren't really Space Marines, if you think about it, and a gun that fires quickly is a nice thing to have. It also replenishes its own ammo, and decently quickly, so you'd be able to keep up nice firepower. And of course explosive grenades are for taking out lots of zombies at a time, if they're in particularly large numbers.

The Death Warrant is a suicidal cliche on my part. "If these zombies are gonna kill me, I'm taking them all down with me", etc. Zombies corner you, you run out of places to run, no ammo/too outnumbered, just sign the Death Warrant. You were gonna die anyway, might as well take out all the zombies in a giant explosion from orbit. Of course, irony is among us.... because if there are troops in orbit, why aren't they on the ground?! But that's not the point. :P

A weapon that isn't up there is my undying Faith. The Emperor protects, and all that. I always carry that with me, so I didn't put it up there with what I WANT.

Lunatics,

Man... you guys must have muscles like a fricking pro-wrestler to carry all that stuff. Remembering how much it bit to carry all of my weapons and gear back in the good 'ol US ARMY; I'd outfit with the following.

40k Weapons and Gear:
Master Crafted Hellgun - backpack generator can be fueled with many common combustables, and battery cells can recharge in the sunlight/boiling water/campfire. If backpack is damaged, power settings can be set back to that of a normal lasgun. I'm in to survive for the long haul; and the thermo-kinetic shock of a las-bolt can vaporize a zombie's brain. The generator in the pack unit can also be slaved to power other devices. Master Crafted for reliability. (From Witch hunters Codex)

Master Crafted Hell Pistol - Another easily maintained, dual power source weapon, mastercrafted for reliability. (From Witch hunters Codex)

Master Crafted Power Katana designed to run off of imperial guard issue rechargable las-pistol cells or hellgun pack power cable - power weapons open up many options as tools, as the disrupting effects of the powerfield can cut like a lightsaber. By using standard pattern cells, you can be sure that power will be available for the long haul. (From Witch hunters Codex)

Ammo: 6 Lasgun energy cells to back up hellgun + 6 laspistol Cells to back up pistol and katana.

6 Holy Orbs of St. Antioch (From Black Templar Codex) - The holy hand grenade fro dealing with zombies; 'nuff said.

Really Sharp Adamantium Boot Knife and Sharpened Adamantium Entrenching Tool* - (Close Combat Weapons, from any army really) - Adamantium is nearly unbreakable, and difficult to dull. A knife and a spade are some of the most elementary survival tools for an infantryman.
*Thats a folding spade/shovel to the uninitiated. :P

EDIT: Adding an Auspex - Thanks "the emperors flame"! ;D
