Zombies is an round-based survival Arcade game where players fight against waves of zombies in an attempt to stay alive as long as possible. By working together as a team, players can earn better weapon and gear and unlock new areas to face the increasingly difficult rounds. The game is the spiritual successor to the Blocking Dead but with a more structured and challenging gameplay style. Zombies was released to the Prototype Lobby on July 5, 2017[1] and officially released to Arcade on June 21, 2018 alongside Hide and Seek.[2]


Four players spawn with a basic starter pistol, which can be used to shoot at zombies, and a knife, a melee weapon not recommended to use as often. Spawning zombies each have different quirks and abilities, and new types will spawn over the course of the game. Special bosses will also spawn on predetermined rounds with different ones depending on the map. Zombies will usually come out windows covered with wooden slabs which they will break, and the windows can be repaired by sneaking next to them, granting extra gold.

Gear such as weapons and armor are found throught the map and can be purchased with gold obtained from shooting zombies or repairing windows. Gold is also used to unlock new areas with further areas granting better and better gear. Perks can also be bought and used after turning on the Power Switch in the Power Station.

If players are "downed" (loose all their health), teammates can revive them by holding sneak near their body. If someone is not revived quickly enough, they will die and lose their perks but not weapons. If the team successfuly completes the round, downed players will automatically come back at spawn in the following round, but if all players are downed, the game is game over. The win conditions vary between maps.

Tips and Tricks[]

  • Avoid using your knife as it is usually faster and safer to use your gun and shoot zombies from afar.
  • Avoid getting Max Ammo collectables when not needed and get them in the end of a round.
  • Avoid getting Double Gold collectables in the end of a round and save them for the beginning of the next round, as there will be more zombies to get more gold.
  • Sticking together will be the best option as all the firepower is centered in one room, especially during boss battles.
  • Focus on your armor and weapons first. Machine perks can be lost on death, but armor and weapons are kept.
  • If you believe that you are outnumbered and that there are too many zombies to fight off all in one go, try to retreat and find another teammate.
  • Swap weapons while shooting to shoot more total bullets.
  • The Zombie Zapper weapon is regarded as one of the best weapons. It is recommended to prioritise this item from Lucky Chests. The Flamethrower is regarded as one of the weakest weapons. It is recommended to not take it from Lucky Chests, or to replace it if obtained.
  • Power-ups that can set Zombies on fire can also set you or your teammates on fire if you are attacked by the ablaze Zombie.
