Dead Island is one of the world’s most popular zombie games. Set on a lush tropical island, Dead Island forces players to fight their way through hordes of undead vacationers in order to survive.
The Dead Minecraft mod seeks to bring that same level of entertainment to the Minecraft world. With the Dead Minecraft mod, players have access to 39 new weapons, 2 new structures, 1 new firearm, 1 new throwable weapon, and 6 new zombie types.
Sounds epic? That’s what it’s supposed to be. The mod’s creator, Hoontolo, promises a lot of “epicness” for Dead Minecraft players in the mod’s official forum thread.
To start, let’s go over the zombies included in the Dead Minecraft mod. Each zombie has its own unique texture. Zombies can break down doors and they particularly enjoy eating the blood of villagers. Like many Minecraft enemies, zombies only come out at night. Unfortunately for players, they will not burn.
6 new types of zombies:
-Butchers: Tough, fast, and deadly, just like the butcher zombies from Dead Island.
–Rams: Rams charge straight at players and have high levels of health.
-Walkers: Walkers are traditional zombies that spawn in packs and are stronger than vanilla zombies.
-Infected: Just like walkers, infected zombies spawn in packs. The infected are immediately noticeable due to their rotten and ugly appearance. They can also run very fast.
-Suicider: Suicider zombies, as the name suggests, rush suicidally at players in an attempt to blow them up.
-Thugs: Thugs aren’t too dangerous, but they do pack a mean punch. They’re slower than walkers, but that doesn’t mean players should turn their backs to them.
New weapons include:
-Machetes, katanas, and sickles
-Sledgehammers and crowbars
-Cooked rotten flesh (restores 3 hearts and has 1 in 8 chance of poisoning the player)
-Pistol that fires gold bullets
The mod’s creator promises that players cannot hide from these zombies. Zombies blast right through doors and will terrorize villages at night. So stay far, far away from your nearest village if you want to survive and consider zombie-proofing your Minecraft home.
