This is a mode where players are divided into minority of zombies and majority of humans.

Trivia

  • Taiwan/Hong Kong region had released the teaser trailer for this new update before the official announcement.
  • This mode does not continue the story of the previous Zombie Modes.
  • The trailer resembles Left 4 Dead, another cooperative video game by Turtle Rock Studios and Valve Corporation. However, the gameplay is quite different.
  • This is the first mode in Counter-Strike Online which introduces kicking skill as quick melee (for human) and climbing skill (for zombies).
  • The voice announcer has changed, particularly for South Korea and Chinese language regions. Japan region reuses their old zombie announcer with an additional voice line, while Indonesia and Vietnam regions use the Korean version. Counter-Strike Nexon: Zombies reuses their English voice lines but with lower pitch and faster.
  • Ospreys and Apache helicopters can be seen flying in Dark City and Shoreline during daybreak, to bring supplies for humans.
  • When the map gets dark, the "Good Night" - background music starts playing.
  • The new HUD numbers reuse Half-Life fonts.
  • When a human player's legs model moves faster than usual, it indicates his/her sudden speed increment by use of the adrenaline. This doesn't happen when using the Sprint ability from previous zombie modes.
  • Initially, players could pick up the Expert or Master variants of some weapons as long as they possessed such upgrades. This was patched in later updates for unknown reasons.
  • In previous updates, some zombie players could be chosen randomly to play as Night Stalker when night time arrives (depending on the amount of players in a room). When the Shadow Conqueror set is released, this zombie can only be chosen directly by player.
  • Ironically, even during daytime, certain maps' sky textures still show that it is nighttime.
  • Strangely, the 20-second preparation music doesn't play in CSN:Z/Vietnam region, even though the sound file exists.
