    Right now im working on a zombie map where basically civlization has basically started all over but a few intelligent people are left, and you make your weapons from items you find on the ground around your area. And i was wondering if you guys have any item ideas that start as a basic stage and get to a more complicated stage.

    Here's a example. You cut a tree to get a log, that you sharpen with a knife you get a wooden axe. Then you cut off the end of the axe and replace with a rock to get to the more advance one. Then finally you replace it with a piece of steel to make a even more advance one.

    I need some ideas like this for melee weapons (like knifes, axes, daggers, ect) and ranged weapons (like sling-shots, long range, short range, ect)

    Basically i'm looking for any type of like basic weapon that your could make from your environment. Or like parts and pieces of metal or somthing. If possible make upgradable but they don't have to be.

    If you have any ideas I would greatly appreciate them. +rep for any ideas :)

    I suppose you are not getting many relpies because what you said for the axe will be simmilar for all other melee weapons.

    Slingshot

    'After attaching the stringy substance to an oddly shaped twig, we have discovered that it provides enough force to launch a pebble at great speeds'
    Stage 1 - Stick + Sinew. Stones for ammo.
    Long ranged tactical weapon.

    'After numerous studies in ranged warfare, we have found that shaping our new device into an easier handheld device and using more powerful shots improves performance'
    Stage 2 - Slingshot + Knife. Stones or Metals for ammo.
    Increased damage output. Allows metal balls to be used as projectiles, dealing even more damage.

    'Further tests prove that if the sinew was replaced by a more versatile substance, further targets can be reached!'
    Stage 3 - Slingshot 2.0 + Elastic. Stones or Metals for ammo.
    Increased range, slightly increased damage.

    1. Tonfa
    Wooden Tonfa
    A piece of wood that you strap to each hand, just under the elbows. Attacking this way will free up the use of your hands, if they are already holding onto something
    Requires - Two pieces of logs, some vines (to be used as ropes)

    Carved Wooden Tonfa
    This tonfa is carved with granite to give it sharper edges.
    Requires - Wooden tonfa, some stronger vines (to be used as ropes), granite

    Metal Imbued Tonfa
    This tonfa is not only carved for a shaper edge, but also has pieces of metal struck into it for maximum power during attacks.
    Requires - Carved wooden tonfa, some rope, pieces of metal


    2. Primitive Flail
    Rock on a vine
    Nothing more than finding some strong enough vines to tie onto a medium sized piece of sharp rock. The vines don't exceed the length of 2 arms to minimize the chance of breaking when the user starts swinging it
    Requires - A sharp, hard piece of rock, some vines.

    Sharpened Rock on a vine
    Nearly the same as its earlier variation, just uses sturdier vines and some effort in sharpening the rock
    Requires - Rock on a vine, some stronger vines, some more sharp rocks.

    Simple Flail
    This variation takes more work to do. The sharpened rock is first dipped into a hot lava to harden its surface, and then some rope must be found to replace the fragile vines, and finally a piece of sturdy wood is needed to be used as a handle.
    Requires - Sharpened rock on a vine, some rope, a sturdy log, a source of lava or something similar.


    3. Primitive Spear
    Sharpened Stick / Sharpened Bamboo
    There are two variations that could be used - wood or bamboo. Wood requires more effort and needs to find something of suitable size, while bamboo is easier to make but can't be improved much. Both variations need to have their tips sharpened with hard rocks.
    Requires - Log of appropriate length and width or bamboo, some sharp rocks.

    Metal tip spear / Metal tip bamboo
    Better then merely sharpened versions, this type of spears have sharp metal attached to their tips
    Requires - Sharpened stick or Sharpened bamboo, some metal pieces

    You actually need water too, to make the gunpowder most effective, we made gunpowder in chemistry at school.

    Melee weapon:
    Simple sword
    requiers a metal tube, a hammer or heavy rock, an anvil or a large surface that can be used in the same way, and a fire.
    you simply heat the pipe and hammer a part of the pipe flat so that it turns sharp like a sword.
