    This thread is specifically for bugs and issues for the Flood Zombies event. Please keep suggestions in the appropriate suggestions thread.

    • Turn off the ability to see names for zombies on screen like you can normal players. It takes away from the suspense when you see a persons name under your boat. via CounterCraftz: Add Zombie tag in scoreboard to players who have died.
    • Animation for hitting sometimes doesn't work. respawining will reset it in a way but sometimes you will respawn and it still effects you.
    • Hands sometimes do not appear while a zombie.
    NOTE: THE ZOMBIE EVENT IS A PERMANENT EVENT AND WILL NOT GO AWAY AFTER HALLOWEEN.

    They do but it is very hard to hit players. We designed this so that zombies are more of a nuisance than an actual threat. While zombies can kill players, we still want people to destroy others boats and reduce the chance of trucing at the same time.

    I don't know about everyone else but I like killing the zombies. Though I have a hard time killing them.

    You should have seen the zombies before they were nerfed. They were super fast

    Use the SVU or para to knock them back. SVU is really OP on them.

    I think zombies should have inflict more damage upon hit (Zombie SWEP) and they should do some damage to props as well. (I've seen people use new props to create "anti-zombie" boats)

    No, Zombies would become to op then. We currently already have a high respawn rate which causes zombies to be around almost constantly. We don't want players going full defense, so if you see players going defense and not shooting other boats, that is still against the rules. If they aren't defending against zombies, they need to be shooting other boats.

    Currently I have several issues with this round. Though with there being only 2 days left of the event I don't expect them all to get addressed.

    • Getting the Walking Dead achievement is extremely difficult. (I have played for over 30 hours and have only killed a single player because zombies don't hit hard enough, the round only comes about once every 10 rounds and getting the kill ONLY counts if you get the last hit)
    • Getting the Survivor Achievement is difficult (Especially if you don't play a lot or just started to play during the event)
    • Zombies are hard to kill. (I have to use a whole magazine of ammo if not more to kill a single zombie.)
    • The event doesn't happen often enough to give players time to get the achievements.
    • The buggy attack animation when playing as a zombie makes for difficult placement/adjustment of attacks.
    • You never know when you're off cooldown when attacking

    I really could go on but I suppose its a waste of my time since the event is almost over and it likely wont return until next year.

    I thought the round was permanent. Just introduced during Halloween.

    First off, this will be a permanent event, it will not go away after Halloween.

    • I agree, however the fact that it will be around forever will give time for adjustments to the event and to get the achievement after said updates.
    • same as above
    • Para and SVU are both good choices, However I have brought it up to donkie that soem weapons do not work as well as others on zombies. Shotgun took 5 double shots to kill one zombie at close range with no knock back. I think there should be a big damage boost with the crowbar, but that's just my opinion.
    • Not sure if this should be changed or not
    • Agreed, needs a better animation
    • Agreed.

    I wasn't aware that this was going to be a permanent event.

    If you check Ricks last Post in the Staff Conference Notes you will see that it says this will be perm.
