Suggestion: Allow users to play as Zombies
New, WishlistPublic


As of now zombies are quite dumb, I know they've got eagle eyes and go trough walls, but for me they don't really represent as much threat as other players do. So why not let users play as zombies too if they choose to, let them have hunger which can only be replenished by eating other players, imagine 100 players servers with zombie teams hunting for survivors, now that would be awesome.

why people so afraid of new things

or how would it be to have a 1/100 chance to spawn as soldier fully equipped
or medic (with lots of drugs an so on)

this would be more realistic, also the zombie spawn

also we need more tents all over the map, so the people dont need to go to some airstrips 20000km far away etc

some ideas are made quickly with very little development/coding! and would be a great benefit for the game!

awesome idea, we would have large numbers of dangerous zombies, my god i hope they'll be slowwwww

there was a custom mod of dayz, in which when you died from zombies you then spawned back in as a zombie and could run around chasing players and attracting zombies, cant remember what version it was but to be honest i think something like that will be left to community modding after release reaches us, the team really need to work on the core ideas of the game and get it to a release state. it is a good idea though as it has been implemented as mentioned, but was never taken up in the official mod.

FUNTASTIC IDEA! HAVE MUST! MUST HAVE this is so cool.. like the choosing of spawnpoints maybe, but cooler..WE - NEED - THIS!

I wouldn't like this. Zombies are supposed to be dumb, and they are. Remember, zombies are like really idiotic super endurance humans and our one advantage is that we are smarter than them.

Then it wouldn't be Dayz. Dayz is oriented to be survival game, being a living dead doesn't make sense!

Isnt DayZ normally a Zombie Survival Game?

where is the problem? i think many players would like to hunt other players as zombie, especially when as zombie you would have some special abilities.. like call 5+ zombies :D

i dont understand this, its like the idea with choosing respawn point by urself.. or ADD SOME TENTS on countrysides.. where is the problem? this would make the game more and more cool

or start with RANDOM outfit/weapon/mag ..etc...

Needs more votes down IMHO.

players should turn zombie when killed or infected. when you have eaten my brains you can play with your toy m4 again.

yeah, lets play zombies. lets wait near the spawn areas and eat tons of new spawning players. And then run around miles and miles for nothing else.

sounds fun for me. not.

@huidube your imagination is like on modern kids ..totally destroyed

for sure when this would get into game this should be THINKd ABOUT

so as.. a special zombie type which is 1. very fast and or 2. has abilities (like spawn up other zombs!) ..etc pp. .there a lot of possibilites
