I personally think Joe should use some sort of melee weapon, maybe a pole or a pipe of some sort.
Woof.

I agree.
Though, if we were stuck among the four stated, I would say BFG. Just for the name.
Heh, Big F*cking gun...

I don't see Joe as someone who would be very effective with a gun of any kind.

Yeah, but with a BFG 9000, you don't need to hit the enemy.

Still, I don't see Joe as a character precise enough to effectively use a ranged weapon.

Joe can fire in a general direction, so if he sprays enough bullets, then he hits.

But with the BFG 9000 he can destroy armies of zombies with a single shot, as long as he hits in the general area.

Joe isn't very precise, but not all weapons need precision.

Melee weapons is useless, since Joe can just hit people and their heads go off.

Not entirely true, but what he does need for that is not a sword or axe, it is a 5 gauge tungsten steel pipe eight feet long. The point of a weapon for Joe would not be to magnify his strength, but to increase the range at which he can apply it.

I'm pretty sure he would be able to kill zombies by throwing rocks at them.

So Joe doesn't really need an advanced weapon to kill zombies, he could use metal pipes, signs, car doors, etc.

Hitting zombies with a stop sign will put an instant stop to their brain eating.
Hitting people hard enough with an 88 mp/h sign will send them flying at that speed, back in time, and might end up leaving a trail of fire.
