1 New Game Mode

  • Objective

    • Every wave has a mandatory objective and these objectives must be accomplished to proceed to the next wave.

    • An objective map has a predetermined number of waves. There is no short, medium, or long game length for these.

    • It has story elements! There are unique user interface elements, characters, environment objects, special effects, cinematics, and voice overs to convey a narrative experience alongside the Zed carnage.

1 New Map

  • Steam Fortress
    • Compatible with Survival, Weekly, Endless, and Objective Game Modes.
    • Fend off hordes of Zeds inside Lockheart’s very own metal fortress of steam
  • 3 Objective Maps

    • Steam Fortress

      • Mercenaries prepare a rocket to assist Lockheart in his magnificent journey to reach beyond the skies!

    • Zed Landing

      • Mercenaries work with Dr. Ogada Buyu to uncover the events of the Horzine plane crash and locate important information for her before Horzine gets their hands on it!

    • Outpost

      • Mercenaries assist Dr. Ogada Buyu in retrieving server data from the abandoned Horzine base before destroying all traces of it to eliminate the Zed threat.

  • New Objective types

    • Transport

      • Players are required to pick up an item and deliver it to a predetermined location on the map. The objective is complete once the required amount of items are delivered.

      • Players carrying the item will receive a movement speed reduction of 53% to walk and 60% to run speed. This movement speed reduction does not apply to solo players or the last player alive.

    • Exterminate

      • Players are required to kill Zeds until the Zed counter reaches 0. These waves can have special makeups to differ them from the Survival game mode wave variants.

      • Boss variant of Exterminate requires the players to kill the boss. This is the same as the boss wave from the Survival game mode.

  • 2 New Weapons
    • Seal Squeal for the Demolitionist.
      • An explosive semi-automatic harpoon launcher that fires harpoons timed for explosion after 4 seconds. Alt-fire manually triggers detonation of all set harpoons. If the harpoon impact kills the Zed, it will pin their corpse to any solid environment surface that the harpoon lands on.
      • Trader price is 1100 Dosh.
    • Hemoclobber for the Berserker and Field Medic.
      • A long, needle-laced bat that deals bludgeon and toxic damage to Zeds and heals players on impact. If a heavy attack has ammunition loaded into the magazine, impact against a player or Zed causes an explosion of blue gas that heals all players and damages all Zeds within its radius.
      • Trader price is 1200 Dosh.
