Unconscious state tweaks with infected
Reviewed, NormalPublic


When you go unconscious especially as a solo player infected just attack and don't give you a chance to get back up so you end up dying to infected most of the time if you go unconscious.

I think if you tweaked the infected so that when a player goes unconscious infected no longer attack that player because they appear to be dead.

When the player awakens from unconscious state they will be surrounded by the idle infected and will be given a chance of surviving unconscious state even as a solo player.

@Geez Any chance we can get this fed back? It’s one of the most disappointing ways to end a DayZ ‘story’. It would be nice to have the opportunity to wake up and escape the zombies.

I think it would fit the lore of the game, too. Since they don’t want to eat us, but just attack us. It’s not like they attack dead bodies... How can a zombie tell that a downed player is still alive?

Even if it’s not currently possible to change the AI from attacking players, could you nerf the damage they do when we are unconscious? It’s definitely something that needs to be considered.

Hello Jakeyounghere/EnterThePug and thank you for the feedback.
Currently we are not set on either keeping the current state or disabling the zombie attacks on unconscious players and it is a matter of discussion for the future updates.
