Zombies are deceased humans, and are the main enemies Kyle will encounter throughout the game. Throughout the game, they can advance and evolve as necessary to kill the player. They are also the most populated group on the planet, as only few survived the outbreak, and billions turned into the undead. There are few variations of the zombie.


All zombies are undead humans. They all have scratches and lights on their eyes, scars, bruises, and several stains of blood spread throughout their body. They vary when it comes to what they wear, as there are different zombies in Dead Trigger. Some wear civilian clothing, while others wear clothes that are linked to an occupation, such as a police officer or a construction worker, the colour of their eyes detect how dangerous they are.

The exception is the survivor zombie found on the tutorial which awkwardly still looks human.
Awkward Habits

Well this is awkward.


Zombies can damage the player using their arms. If their legs are blown off, they will crawl using their arms, unless one arm is blown off, which will result in their death. If both arms are blown off, they can attack using their head. The Hulk Zombie and the special zombies are the only zombies that can withstand multiple blows from any and all weapons, even the most powerful weapons (Lupara, Enfield, etc.), taking more bullets to take down. Normal zombies will spawn with metal pipes in Dead Trigger 2 after leveling to a certain rank, higher ranks mean they will spawn with pipes more often. Special zombies don't spawn with any weapon, the strongest zombie that can spawn in Dead Trigger 2 is a running zombie with a metal pipe.

In Radio Transmission 52 of the Resistance HQ, it is revealed that zombie corpses can regenerate, even if blown to bits, if not burned completely. In return, there are people who are in charge of burning the remains of all the dead zombies to prevent their regeneration. They are called "Body Burners."

Also, in Radio Transmission 54, it has been reported that dead zombies are waking up everywhere. This is most likely what happened to the First One.

Weaknesses Edit

All zombies have more than one weakness. Special items can be used to slow down or weaken them, such as grenades, or the Blade Cutter. Barrels can also kill or cripple them.

In DT1, zombies may become invincible for a very brief moment. When the player shoots off a leg, as they begin to fall down, no weapon can kill them. Only when their dropping animation is complete can the player kill them.
