Zombie respawn is too fast and aggressive
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Most of the time zeds spawn almost near my character, so I have constant unending melee fights with them.Cant even loot some buildings, I just have to fight them all the time.

The Zombie respawn mechanic is very basic at the moment and if they are killed they just respawn regardless of whether a player is nearby or not.

I'm certain the devs are aware and that they will improve how Zombies respawn in the near future.

Ofcourse) Im aware of that its very basic too, just made a note about it.And there is also nice feeling of "28 days later" when zombies just keep on coming, so maybe its not a bad thing) + players on experimental branch are somewhat more friendly and less "shoot-on-sight"y.

I'm enjoying the respawn mechanic... and I can't wait for when it's more developed and zeds respawn outside of town and wander back in. As it stands, I was leaving Zelengorsk and shot a zed that was below the treeline only to hear screeches above me among the trees and have a couple zeds swoop in on me... it was terrifying! And awesome!

Hey there,

like Jonno said, this is a very early implementation and will be reworked fairly soon.

Closing this as it is not related to a final implementation of the mechanic.
