*Images comming soon

Regular Zombie

The normal zombie doesn’t have any special traits. They are easy to kill and can be beaten with all kind of weapons but this is compensated by numbers. Don’t let them swarm you

Fat Zombie

This zombie can be immune to some melee attacks, like the primary knife attack (left mouse click). They can also hold an arrow shot (this will knock them on the ground). The best is to shot them directly in the head, stun them with the secondary attack of a melee weapon (right mouse click) or perform an stealth attack

Doctor Zombie

This zombie is like the regular one, but upon death there is a chance to drop a MEDIKIT or a INOCULATOR.


A survivor that scavenged some areas and died with all the loot with him. If killed, he will drop some stuff for you. It is always a good idea to kill them for extra supplies. If you kill him with an stealth attack (V by default), he won’t drop any supplies.

Police officer with helmet

This zombie can’t be head shot directly. First of all, you need to break his helmet with a strong weapon (Sledgehammer or Desert Eagle will do the trick). You can also stun him and get behind for an stealth attack with a cutting weapon (V by default)


This zombie is really hard to kill if you don’t have the right weapons. He has body armor and a helmet. They can be easly killed with an explosive (IED or grenade). Or, you can destroy his helmet with the Sledgehammer or Desert Eagle. The bow is also a good choice. If you don’t have the right weapons, simply beat him with melee doing team with other players.

Patient Zero

The ultimate zombie. He has a lot of HP, is fast and he is also immune to headshots. The best is to team up with other players or kill him with a strong weapon, like the bow or the double barrel shotgun. This zombie is Flatline exclusive

Player Zombie

A human player that got infected (or joined the session late or whatever). For see if there are player zombies in the session just press TAB (they will appear greyed out in the scoreboard). They are fast, can climb surfaces, can jump and crouch when attacking. They can also gather nearby zombies with their roar for create their own zombie army. If the player is an expert it can slay a whole human team in a blink of an eye
