Always make sure you bring a full mag in your gun, and a spare for emergencies. After that you should have a sturdy melee weapon for a primary. Something like a spiked or flanged mace would be ideal.

... Kinda funny the further along we go with tech, the less we remember about how effective the old ways were in some senses.

@Xylas_Incarnum: Something sturdy, that's for sure. Sturdy and doesn't need reloading! XD

@Guest: Sure you can... if you're using piano wire... Oh wait no that's a type of decapitation I'm thinking of. >_>

In all seriousness though, you can't choke what doesn't breathe.

@Xylas_Incarnum: Definitely can't strangle what cannot breathe, but it does keep an infected's mouth away from its prey, even if it's just for a moment.

@moonjellybeans: Yeah, that's always a good thing, just seems like that guest was thinking Magnus was trying to choke the thing unconscious or something.
I mean, yeah that hold's good for that, but it was more to slow the zombie down than try to press it into submission.
Only way to make a zombie submit that I know of requires destroying their joints and a number of their bones. breaking the jaw then taping it shut being part of that process.

I mean, if some scientist needs a live specimine of an infected, that's how I'd deliver it anyways. Mangled, but "alive".

@Xylas_Incarnum: Which is fair, that's what that move is commonly used for, after all!

That might work more easily with some of the weaker 'starving' zombies for sure. I wonder if a 'live' specimen has been taken in at an evac point somewhere.

@moonjellybeans: Save that it's being used on a zombie, something that very rarely needs to breathe. Depends on mythos backing and what type of zombie.

A hypothetical 5 bucks says that whatever live specimen taken wasn't properly disabled to make examining it actually safe, causing an outbreak at whatever lab it was being done at. Well, if a specimen was taken that is.

I'll be honest though, one probably has given the situation going on. having samples and corpses are fine and all, but living subjects tend to be leaps and bounds more helpful in these kinds of scenarios. ... And people like Magnus even more so but that's something a bit more dark. Given that everything else is pretty much only wearing the flesh of former humans so to speak.

Magnus is still very much alive... even though he's definitely carrying the virus. What would be done to him is a bit, well, all said and done it's a lot more risky than experimenting on regular zombies here. His state is the sort that makes even blood tests hazardous to test on if something unexpected happens.
