10 Improvised Weapons for Urban Survival

10 Improvised Weapons for Urban SurvivalWilderness survival is about man versus nature. You have to survive no matter what weather events, dangerous terrain, or frightening creatures you encounter.

Urban survival, on the other hand, is more about man versus man. There are a limited number of supplies in the city, so you have to get what you need before it’s all gone and defend yourself from the people who want what you have.

So while weapons are important for wilderness survival, they are absolutely crucial for urban survival. If you don’t have a weapon during a major urban disaster, you’re as bad off as someone who doesn’t have a firestarter in the wilderness. You may still be able to survive, but it’s going to be a lot harder.

Considering how important weapons are for urban survival, you shouldn’t just learn how to use firearms and knives. You should also learn how to use everyday items as weapons in case you’re ever in a scenario where your weapons are stolen or you don’t have access to them for some reason.

In this video from Reality Survival, JJ Johnson talks about 10 everyday items that can be used as weapons. Here’s his list:

  1. Security Umbrella
  2. Wooden Cane / Walking Stick
  3. Stryker Flashlight
  4. Carpenter Pencils
  5. S&W Tactical Pen
  6. Metal Ruler
  7. Maglite Flashlight
  8. Leatherman Multitool
  9. Write In The Rain All Metal Pen
  10. Stanley Extra Long Bit Set

If you check out the video on Youtube, you’ll find links to these items in the video description. Or you can watch the video below to learn how to use them.

    Mag Lites are great but DO NOT use the head to strike with as you will break the bulb. If you hold it as you did they are awesome.

      If you have a newer Maglight, they have LED’s rather than a normal filament bulb. If your Maglight has a filament bulb, there are LED replacement kits for each size Maglight which makes it a much better light and weapon.

        Steve,
        Thanks for the info re: maglite replacement bulbs. My 3 d cell flaslight has been sitting in a drawer for several years, because I’ve fallen in love with led lights. (NO, MONGO STRAIGHT) Now I can start using my old favorite again.

        Just don’t forget that those LED lights are a “circuit” and are subject to failure during an EMP attack.
