Zombie Mods

Zombie: The Original

After the incident in Rex Research Institute, the scientists are infected by a virus which turns them into zombies (Origin Regular zombie). The zombies have now escaped from Rex and started infecting other humans. The Counter-Terrorists and Terrorists must combine their forces in order to survive the outbreak.

Zombie: The Mutation


After obtaining many human blood samples from infecting humans, the Host Regular zombie is now able to evolve into an Origin zombie and use the 'Berserk' ability which enhances its movement speed and knockback resistance for a certain amount of time. The zombie can continue in evolving until it reaches the Evolute Stage or simply the Prime Stage which grants it a very high amount of health and armor power. The zombies can also regenerate their HP under certain conditions and are able to use Zombie Grenades.

After the Zombie Mode Rework patch, 'Healing' skill is added, making them able to heal themselves. Regular zombies now have 2 skills: Berserk (default by G) and Healing (default by 5).

Zombie: The Hero

Zombies are able to revive from death as long as they are not killed by a headshot. Host Regular zombies can also use the Berserk and Healing abilities but it is less efficient when compared to the one of Origin zombie. When a zombie receives a certain amount of damage or either infect humans, its Anger Bar will increase and when it is maxed out, the zombie will evolve to the next evolution stage and receive more HP and armor power.

Zombie: The Union

Regular zombies have 2000 health points and 200 armor points. However, it has 2500 health points and 250 armor points if using the Strong Lifepower set. The Berserk ability increases the speed of the zombie alongside doubling its damage by 2 times, however it decreases the defensive power while in use.
