Profile of a Zombie : Chapter 1

Everyone thinks there is only one kind of zombie. Well there's not.

We have at least 9 of them that we have confirmed around the map. We know of possibly 3 more varieties that only come out at night and others that lurk in the swamps or underground in the dark and vast network of caves.

  1. The Military Zombies - Raiding Zombies

These guys are nasty, nasty. Ex-military, highly trained, already have weapons and ordinances on them. That's a bad combination.

This is an extension of the Zombie Horde Plugin by ChaosCode called Raiding Zombies 1.0.9 by Razor.

This Requires 'ZombieHorde'

They will shoot rockets and toss C4 at bases around the map they encounter while roaming.

Plugin Rated:

Developer: Razor


Great Plugin Does exactly what I needed it for, it put pressure on my players and adds more to the survival aspect of rust, love it!, Giving a one for this plugin is ignorant, so I'll be Giving it a 5,Reasoning! - Fun factor=(2) Ease of use=(3), people should learn to read things holistically before they decide to go with it, the guy that said it doesn't work gave it a 1 and he didn't even install the dependency first 0_0, then the other guy that said "it doesn't work really", made the ignorant 1 rating decision because they kill themselves sometimes, that doesn't happen all the time, and they use rockets on players if the player has gone inside, they target the last seen location, feel sorry for you Razor, these people just don't know this plugins real worth or just don't read properly. Rant done.

They are never alone. They come in squads or units of 4 or more. They are armed and carry both C4 and rocket launchers. If they see you they follow you home and attack your base by throwing C4 and rockets at it until it breaks.

Chance = When horde member spawns the chance of him being able to have c4 or rockets.

totalC4 = How many c4 he has.

totalRockets = How many rockets he can shoot.

targetPlayerOnly = Will target the bases only of the player he seen last.

2. The Original Zombie Horde by K1lly0u that started the genre

Create hordes of zombies (customizable murderers) that roam around your server in packs.

Spawn at monuments by default but can use Random Spawns to spawn in other more random locations.

Highly configurable to roam the entire map in a horde and to grow the hordes when they collide with other hordes. This is a nice little feature to create larger herds of zombies that can become a much bigger threat. Hordes become herds or swarms.

A Herd, also known as a Horde or a Swarm, is a large group of zombies. They are usually attracted by sound, leading a few individuals to come together, eventually finding and merging with new groups, growing larger and larger and even more ferocious.

Herds wander around without a real purpose until attracted by sounds or prey. Herds are notably more aggressive than smaller groups, and the presence of zombies
